Alison Wonderland

Already a well-known on Australia’s dance music scene, Alison Wonderland’s name has been spreading elsewhere of late as well – she appearing for the first time on DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs list this year, at 89. She also won the New Artist Of The Year prize at the Electronic Music Awards in LA in September.

A classically train cellist, she keeps this side of her career running concurrently to DJing gigs, meaning that among the trap beats on her SoundCloud profile, you’ll occasionally be interrupted by a bit of Bach. As well as being a welcome sonic shift, it also highlights the musicality underpinning her electronic work.

Ahead of the latest of her Wonderland Warehouse Project shows in Adelaide later this month – featuring A$AP Ferg, Lunice and more – she has just released new single ‘Happy Place’, the first track off her upcoming second album. Listen to that here:
