check http://symbiosis.com.au/ & http://subcontinentaldub.com/ for more details

Fusing his unique blend of acid, dub, techno and psychedelia,
WESTERNSYNTHETICS draws from vast pallet of electronic soundscapes, live
instrumentation as well as the subversive imagery he projects through his lyrics.

“I’d like people to feel inspired both politically and artistically by the album,” says O’Neill, of the dual musical and political goals he pursued for his debut album. “I wanted to cover a range of soundscapes. I did this by using a lot of my own and other peoples sampling of old radios, streets, voices and noise.”
The result is one of those rare dance albums that carries an appeal stretching beyond the scene from where it originated. There’s every bit the polish we’ve come to expect from all of our accomplished dance producers, but it’s coupled
with a beautiful sense of the organic, and a South Pacific identity that belies O’Neill’s roots. Highly meditative in its nature, the pressure builds and releases across May Day Radio, with an album that keeps on giving after many listens.



THE HYPE

“Sounds dope! Really great heavy-hitting work.”
Posivision Magazine Tokyo

“Nice release! Any sensible DJ out there will place this in their chill out bag for those early morning sessions. This will sit nicely alongside Four Tet, Pitch Black and Joy Orbison.”
Spektrum

“Westernsynthetics can do no wrong.”
Resident Advisor

“There’s some seriously crisp production at play here across each of the tracks. The Machine references current trends in broken beat with a neat twist. Lush stuff.”
Street Press Australia

“Holy crap… the emotion of The Machine is captivating. Top marks.”
Junkbeats

“It’s clear his sound is among the country’s most original.”
Cyclic Defrost
