Here are five DJs or live electronic acts you cannot miss in Australia this summer.

Although it’s always hard to choose, we’ve picked five acts you absolutely have to see this festive season. Give it up for SG Lewis, Bicep, DJDS, Jon Hopkins and Made in Paris!

SG Lewis

English producer and DJ SG Lewis is coming down under for an appearance at Lost Paradise this year. Get lost in his electronic soundscapes that span from danceable, disco-influenced tracks to deeper, darker grooves.

Listen to Again below, a cut from his absolutely mint new release Dark, featuring Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs.

DJDS

LA duo DJDS are heading to Australia for Laneway Festival 2019. Ahead of their appearance, they released a 7-track remix EP for their acclaimed album Big Wave More Fire, which featured remixes from BloodPop, Rostam and Jacques Greene.

If you want to get those bodies on the floor and away from the dining room, make sure to spin BloodPop’s remix of I Get By.

Bicep

North Island’s hottest live duo Bicep are coming to Australia for Lost Paradise this December, but if you didn’t get a chance to buy your ticket, you can still catch them at a series of sideshows and get your dose of hypnotic deep house.

Jon Hopkins

After releasing one of 2018’s best albums and playing some of the world’s most monolithic festivals, Jon Hopkins will finally head to Australia for a series of appearances around Laneway 2019.

Catch him live at the festival itself, or at his Sydney and Melbourne sideshows.

Made In Paris

Paris Forscutt is known for her enchanting, melodic techno. You may know her from her recent release Reconnect, which has already gotten some serious acclaim from Richie Hawtin and the editors of Mixmag.

If you missed out on getting tickets to Beyond The Valley, don’t worry, she’s touring the East Coast in January.
