To all you Perthinites who want to learn more about what's happening in our local electronic scene - and to those beyond who want to be impressed with the smooth, catchy and creative talent coming out of, and coming to, Perth - this website has its finger on the electronic music pulse:
From indie artists producing EPs in their garages - to signed artist with great production qualities and national standing - Perthquake is a great way to listen to new tunes, provide talent feedback, blog about recent gigs and issues affecting the music scene, learn about artists and even share the music you've been mixing. And of course, it has a great gig guide...
One of my reccos to feature recently on the website would have to be this interview with Trouble & Bass front man 'Drop the Lime'. He recently had the Claremont Showgrounds jumping with his fresh mixes at Stereosonic 2009 - Drop the Lime's Aussie debut. He's remixed tracks for Armand Van Helden, Little Boots, Robyn, Blaqstarr, Moby, Rex the Dog, Dan le Sac vs Scroobius Pip and Buraka Som Sistema. In this interview he shares some interesting comments on illegal downloads and reveals he was in a choir with Alicia Keys...
If you like what Drop the Lime has to offer, watch out for his next album - to be released in early 2010.
Whilst you're there - check out the interview with one of Germany's best exports: Alter Ego, that have been making techno and electronic dancefloor monsters for almost 15 years.
The site also has plenty of indie art, fashion and film reviews to get your cultural fix.
