Roza Terenzi’s productions are prime for interstellar communication; sublime mind dance, warehouse bleeps and dawnready breaks that will inevitably find union between earth people and other beings. This is even more apt in her immense DJ sets, astutely linking these outer limit genres as one through common sound, tone and rhythmic drive. Terenzi came to the surface in 2016 after years of experimenting and fine tuning her production skills, edging closer to finding her own style. As she migrated from Perth to Melbourne, these hometown recordings were documented on her first EP for Good Company.
Bombay-based Dreamstates has a hazy approach to house and techno. Driven by 4x4 patterns, spanning breakbeat, acid, afro, disco and outsider house, but not afraid to stray into a deeper, more unnerving sound - with an eye on what the moment calls for. A Dreamstates night is usually a colourful and varied journey. A resident DJ on Boxout.fm, he also runs a monthly podcast series, aptly titled 'Cosmic Claps', created keeping in mind those introspective moments when you need an undulating beat to keep you going. This is music that seeps into your subconscious. Think shades of house, hints of techno and a touch of the eclectic – always arriving while constantly in an urgent state of departure.
