The last 12 months have been momentous for Somersault, from performing throughout Berlin and at Amsterdam Dance Event, to signing releases on Audiojack’s Gruuv, Ben Rau’s META and Kerri Chandler’s MadTech. Heads are turning fast to this thriving force from Melbourne, Australia.
Influenced by jazz-infused house, the shuffling rhythms of dark UK garage and rolling atmospheric techno, Somersault straddles the line between the delirious highs and murky lows, a sound that’s brought his unique sets to some of the most respected outdoor festivals and underground clubs.
The talented producer has come a long way from session guitarist to forging a signature brand of completely unique and enduring, groove focussed music. Receiving support from Archie Hamilton, Groove Armada, Stacey Pullen, DJOKO, Prunk, Tobi Neumann, John Digweed, Felix Da Housecat, Laurent Garnier, Greco, Karotte, Roger Sanchez, Franky Rizardo, the list goes on and on.
Finding creative comfort in a raw stripped back sound, Somersault’s recent releases have signed to world-renowned imprints: Rawsome Deep, Whoyostro, Sit Down, Innocent and Kootz. His genre-bending work has also been snatched up by Suprematic, Bonzai Progressive, Bassic, Open and Subsonic Music.
From dimly lit clubs to dusty bush doofs, Somersault seizes the psyche of the party. His lively DJ performances have seen him become a regular at Rabbits Eat Lettuce, Subsonic, Dragon Dreaming and Elements, along with famed brands on the club circuit: Revolver Upstairs, Goodbar, S.A.S.H and Elsewhere.
