Chicago has house, Detroit techno, Berlin minimal and London a long history of rave culture. But Melbourne’s dance producers are chameleons, mashing up a multitude of Trans-Atlantic sounds with an irreverence peculiar to them. Tornado Wallace subscribes to this very individualism but, even within his hometown, he’s considered an anomaly.
The elusive and enigmatic DJ/producer is discreetly taking on the world with his hybrid of house, techno and deep groove with the slinky disco playa responsible for three standout releases in 2010, all supported by contemporaries such as Jimpster, Mr Scruff, The Revenge, Eric Duncan, Horse Meat Disco, Greg Wilson, Matthew Dear, Mark E, Eddie C, DJ T and more. First was the Tornado Never Dies EP on Sleazy Beats followed by the triumphant Paddlin’ EP on Jimpster’s Delusions Of Grandeur which topped Juno’s charts for a number of weeks and was listed in their top 50 tracks for 2010. His love affair with Delusions of Grandeur continued with ‘Always Twirling’, which reached similar heights, resonating with music lovers from all corners of the globe.
