Tornado Wallace is a one of a kind musician. With years of experience under his belt, Wallace has cemented himself in the streets of Melbourne’s house scene in a way that’s undeniably his own. His debut album Lonely Planet was released last year via Running Back records and found him exploring elements of ambient, techno, and Balearic sounds. His sonic ambitions led him to his new hometown of Berlin, where he has continued to curate his own parties.
In preparation for Red Bull Music Presents Jagwar Ma at Dark Mofo, Tornado Wallace has put together a new Choice Mix via Red Bull Radio, allowing fans to ready themselves for his Hobart set. Implementing the work of acts like Boards Of Canada and Skee Mask, Wallace paints a picture of a grimy, melancholic Berlin meticulously on a sonic canvas; perfect for all palettes. Flurries of deep, booming basslines and warped, reverberated synths flourish throughout the mix, intersecting in a way that perfectly demonstrates the extraterrestrial mind of the man himself. With a dense, detailed sound like this, it’s no wonder why Wallace dominates all around the world.
Tornado Wallace will be joined by the likes of No Zu and Lauren Hansom in support of Jagwar Ma at this special event. Marking the 4th anniversary of Red Bull Music and Dark Mofo’s collaborations, this night has been created to showcase some of the most eclectic minds in Australian music to both familiar and fresh audiences. Dark Mofo for years has acted as a utopia for diversity and self-expression down under, while Red Bull Music has found its place as a force supporting creative freedom. Together, their reach and impact will continue to push the culture forward and expand the minds of people all around the country. If this new Choice Mix From Tornado Wallace is any indication, 2018 is tracking to be their biggest and best showcase yet.
