Westernsynthetics is a passionate Producer from Sydney, Australia. His debut album May Day Radio displays “sophisticated high-technology electronica to more soulful traditional style dub, carried throughout by powerful, animated drones and drifts,” says BMP Magazine (South Africa). Westernsynthetics draws from a vast pallet of soundscapes and live instrumentation as well as subversive imagery projected through his lyrics.
Westernsynthetics’ live shows fuse his unique blend of acid, dub, techno and electronic psychedelia. A regular performer at Australian dubstep nights Westernsynthetics has supported heavyweights Distance, Scuba, Caspa, Skream, Benga, Cotti, 2562, Gravious, Tes La Rok, Spherix, Emalkay and Deadbeat. Festival performances include Rainbow Serpent and Peats Ridge Festival, Australia.
In 2011 Westernsynthetics will be showcasing his productions internationally, as he embarks on his first international tour of Europe, throughout the summer. This tour includes a performance at world renowned Outlook Festival in Croatia 2011. Significantly, this is the first time an Australian Producer has been invited to play the Festival.
In 2009 Westernsynthetics was nominated for ‘Best Instrumental Composition’ category in the Australian Songwriters Association Awards for his debut 12” LP Engine No. 999. Engine No. 999 & his debut album May Day Radio, is released on Sub Continental Dub and distributed internationally by renowned UK imprint Cargo Records.
