Having come up through the ranks at a startling rate, Australian Sonny Fodera is now leading from the front. Over the last couple of years, the man originally turned on to the dance by Derrick Carter has fomented his own groove driven, emotive brand of house that now resonates around the world. Turning heads right from the off were his compilations on Deep Down and Defected, which found Sonny adding his remix flair to a bunch of classics, and after that came sophomore effort After Parties & Aeroplanes. Again a collaborative affair featuring the likes of Doorly, Gene Farris and Cajmere, it was a more jacking, sharp-edged treat designed for maximum dance floor impact, but was also stuffed with unforgettable vocals that agin saw Sonny stepping up his game.
2016 saw the already influential artist stepping up yet again, this time by making his brilliant entry into the hallowed Defected In the House series. His standout contribution is a terrific three disc affair that is jam packed with his own stellar originals and remixes as well as some brand new and exclusive material (including Sonny Fodera ft. Alex Mills – ‘Always Gonna Be,’ Sonny Fodera ft. Shannon Saunders ‘Over This’ and ‘The Definition’ amongst many others). Aside from that high impact work, Sonny has also turned out a consistently excellent string of EPs on labels like Defected, Dirtybird and Visionquest, as well as remixing Rudimental. Never was he in finer form that with ‘Let Go’, a collaboration with Cervendos that sat pretty in the Beatport Deep House Top 10 for no fewer than 12 weeks in 2014, whilst more recently, his current single with Yasmin, ‘Feelin U’ shot straight in to the 2nd spot in the Beatport chart, only to be outdone by a stunning remix of Gershon Jackson on the legendary Strictly Rhythm label. As such, Sony currently has no fewer than six releases in the Beatport Deep House Top Ten, proving that he is very much creating the sounds of now for DJs and dancers everywhere.
As a result, of course, Sonny is a hugely in demand DJ who started 2016 with a 30 date tour of the UK, United States and Australia. It was his smooth technical skills in the booth that first won him the affections of Green Velvet, and nowadays he weaves his tight, seductive sets featuring all colours of the house spectrum everywhere from Footwork Toronto to Warung in Brazil, Cielo in New York City to Pacha, Sankeys, Amnesia DC10 and in Ibiza as well as We ARE FSTVL and many others.
The future is just as bright as the past for Sonny, who was born in Adelaide, Australia, and has lived between there, Ibiza, the USA and the UK since, though he is currently settled in London. It means he is fully focussed on the next chapter, which already promises to be a thrilling one for his fans, with a new album due on Defected ‘Frequently Flying’ , as well as more EPs on influential labels like Cajual and Lee Foss’s highly anticipated new imprint, Repoulate Mars.
Melbourne-based electronic DJ and producer Dom Dolla continues to increase his value as a renowned name in the expanding dance music scene, after only recently establishing himself as a mainstay in Melbourne’s underground. His sound rapidly gained traction after being picked up by prominent artists such as Diplo, Tchami, and Pete Tong, who were all allured by Dom’s bold use of basslines and energetic jackin’ house.
Dom’s success soared when he released his single, “Define,” a collaboration with label-mates Go Freek in 2015. Very quickly, the song rose to the top of the Aria Club Chart for nine weeks. His other singles, “You,” and “Be Randy” with Torren Foot have both garnered critical acclaim and concretized Dom’s status as a producer. Dom continued to hone in on his technical skills by releasing remixes of Flight Facilities, Peking Duk, Rufus, and others.
Dom’s career has sent him touring across Australia, shortly followed by him playing at internationally renowned festivals such as EDC Las Vegas, Splash House Palm Springs, and ADE Amsterdam. His success continues as he returns to the USA to play at some of the country’s highest-profile spots including Flash nightclub in Washington, D.C!
