A little more about Matt Dwellers:

Dwelling within deep and darkened atmospheres but conveyed with luminous glow. Matt Dwellers’ sound grows through emotion, experience and enthusiasm for creation. Pushing personal boundaries of expansion by means of merging genres, with a result of brilliant moodiness. Melancholic elements often overthrown by brilliant melodies, Matt’s creation’s fall within a range of deep progressive and psychedelic minimal styles.

Born and bred in France, Matt ventured to Melbourne where the inspiration of the local scene and Australian doofing culture set in. Since then his growth has been exponential, releasing consistently with Aftertech Records, Bassic Records, Techgnosis Records, Inlab Recordings and Undergroove Music, amongst many others, including a recent signing to Danish progressive giant Iboga Records. Tastemakers have caught on, with his tracks premiered by 8day Montreal, Soundspace and Progressive Astronaut, showing their support to the Matt Dwellers journey.

His international endeavours have led to guest spots DJing in Colombia’s massive El Mira Dor, as well as Lotus Club (Belgium) and with Berlinpinpin (Paris).

Collaboratively inclined and productively unrestricted, Matt works with numerous international and local producers, emitting creative flow through a roster of like-minded comrades. Matt Dwellers has remixed, been remixed by or collaborated with Nick Devon, Ken Zo, Doppel, Ark-E-Tech, Gabriel Moraes, Frezel, Luis M, Maxi Basshead, Ben Rama, Crenwiick, Longalenga, Sisscok, Monotreme (Storm), Diamandy and more.

Mount Mike

With a fascination for music, dance, and rhythm from a young age, it took Mike a few years of stealing his mother's crockery and wooden spoons and using them to make 4 to the floor dance floor tuna before he persuaded his parents to buy him a drum kit. He played his drum kit day and night, exploring all manner of eastern time signatures and Afro-beat grooves, absorbing sounds from wherever his dial up internet would allow. He began to compose little songets, and riffage, which he recorded in his bedroom using pre-historic software from the local library. Thus began his interest in computer music and audio production. His ears began to pine for the thumping kick drums he overheard on his sister's Ministry of Sound Annual CD, and upon delving into what exactly made this enticing noise, he discovered Ableton Live and a plethora of electronic music. Now based in Melbourne, Mount Mike has been hard at work for a number of years honing his skills as a producer, club DJ, and most recently radio DJ on Premium Tuna.
