Australian music has seen something of a renaissance in recent times, whether you are talking about the psychedelic rock of Tame Impala and Wolfmother or you think of the electronic DJs that are making a scene of their own. Listed below are some of the most prominent DJs that have made the biggest impact in 2017, and as a result are the ones that you should be looking out for if you want to figure out who the best possible tracks will come from in the New Year.
- Young Franco: Young Franco doesn’t really look like a DJ, but that’s only because we tend to think that people will all conform to our particular stereotypes. Franco has had a phenomenal 2017 that has turned him into an absolute rockstar in the DJ scene. He has released several singles that ended up topping the charts, and to top it all off he has been playing at quite a few sell out shows as well. Suffice it to say that this here is an incredibly talented musician that is going to have a lot of artistic control over what 2018 ends up sounding like.
- Perto: One of the first things you are going to notice about Perto is that he is very young. At only 15 years of age, this producer has created some absolute bangers with his remixes in particular giving people at clubs something incredible to dance to. The fact that he is so young becomes irrelevant when you realize just how talented he is, and the best thing is that he just seems to keep getting better. Expect him to release some truly phenomenal tracks this year and get even more famous than he already is.
- Sippy: It’s not easy being a girl in the world of DJs, but Sippy manages to make it look easy. Her tracks are bass heavy powerhouses that are going to make you feel like a tidal wave has hit you right in your soul, with bone shattering bangers that are going to leave you sore the next day from dancing so much. Her 2017 has been so good that chances are she will end up breaking into the US scene this year, and once she does there really will be no stopping her and her incredible growth rate.
- Leotrix: This producer looks more like someone you would find in an 80s punk rock band, but when you listen to his tunes you would find that he is actually one of the filthiest DJs in Australia. His sets have a tendency to drive the crowd wild and the best part is that he has finally started to get some long overdue attention last year. Thanks to this boost in popularity, chances are that his 2018 will be full of new tracks and bigger performances, all of which are going to contribute to him becoming the household name that he thoroughly deserves to be.
