Kiss FM - Dance Music Australia

Late Night Date | Interview & Guest Mix | Premium Tuna | Saturday 10:30AM

Joining us on the show this week is the swinging-high-hat-hustler Rhys Martin – AKA Late Night Date. Tune in on Saturday morning for a raw and soulful guest mix of gritty breakfast haaauuus. We’re expecting to hear a few unreleased numbers from the Date man himself so jump in from 10:30 AM to catch it all.

A little bit more about Late Night Date:

Late Night Date’s take on house music is intriguingly raw and passionate, yet subtle and moody. This delicate balancing act is the culmination of diverse musical influences and years of curating, collecting and selecting records. His most exciting sets to date – opening for Pleasurekraft, Monolink and Anthony Naples, and a slot– have flaunted his longstanding influences from the UK garage and minimal house revival, a sound that is evidently beginning to permeate clubs at home, and throughout the world.

Late Night Date’s productions gained significant attention following his live performance for Melbourne Music Week in late 2018. The material was written entirely on planes, trains and hotel rooms, while absorbing the rich musical influences from parties in Amsterdam via Paris, Berlin, Copenhagen and London. He manipulated his late night experiences into visceral and engaging club cuts, sampling the environments around him and producing a track in each city along the way.

Earlier this year he built and moved into his own studio and has been relentlessly creating and refining his own sound. Coming from a place where he has the environment to freely craft and experiment with new ideas that are now to be released out into the world, this is only the beginning of your time with Late Night Date.

Mount Mike

Mount Mike is Producer & DJ who hails from Melbourne, Australia and currently resides in Vancouver, Canada. Never wavering in his mission to push song and dance beyond the conventions of genre, Mike's taste is broad and doesn't stick to one sound. His music takes on otherworldly tones and textures, bending mood and energy, blending thump and melody. Deep house at the core, his tracks meander through progressive and minimal territory, sometimes even lending from techno. He loves it weird and wonky and is not afraid to blur the boundaries. His DJ sets have landed him slots at Australian festivals such as Strawberry Fields and Babylon and have also seen him support some of the world’s finest acts including personal favourites such as: Stimming, Frankey & Sandrino and Andreas Henberg. Off the stage his role as host on Premium Tuna - a radio show on Kiss FM dedicated to Australian producers and DJs - and director of Under The Nest Music & Arts Festival - a boutique camping festival run in the Winton Wetlands - has cemented his place in the Melbourne scene as one of their own. As a producer, Mike enjoys creating a space where organic and synthetic sounds can meet in emotive harmony. Just like his live sets, he doesn’t like colouring inside the lines. His mantra? There’s a rhythm in everything, you just have to listen for it. His mission? To spread connection and dancing through the emotive and sometimes weirder side of house and techno. Signed to Australian label Suckmusic, Mike's releases have been building momentum with a string of Beatport chartings and Spotify traction. With a number of exciting releases scheduled for the remainder of 2019, Mount Mike is certainly one to watch out for.
