Précurseur de la nouvelle vague de producteurs dance de Melbourne, Tornado Wallace se plaît à distiller sa vibe entre les deux hémisphères du globe, bien qu’étant basé à Berlin. Formé à la house et le groove comme moteur il sort des EP sur des écuries telles que Second Circle (Music From Memory), De Grandeur, Instruments of Rapture, Sleazy Beats Recordings…

En 2016 son album Lonely Planet voit le jour, cette fois ci sur le labl de Gerd Janson, Running Back. Empreint de sonorités house, balearic et ambient, le projet illustre son goût pour les sonorités globales. Digger invétéré, il créé des sets entêtants et entrainants, à l’image de sa Boiler Room enregistrée à Melbourne, au festival Sugar Mountain.



First blowing a gale as a forerunner of the new wave of Melbourne dance producers, Tornado Wallace’s distinct and perceptive electronics now find him in a constant rotation of both hemispheres, spending most of the year based in Berlin.

From formative house beginnings, the ESP Institute initiation Thinking Allowed proved Tornado Wallace as a force to be reckoned with – the driving groove and Will Powers stargazing quickly matched by an EP of eco-electro burners on Beats In Space. This two timing continued for another round with ESP issuing the elegant Circadia, while Beats In Space got their churning acid two-tracker Kangaroo Ground/Ferntree Gully.

In tandem, krautback duo Coober Pedy University Band was formed with Otologic’s Tom Moore, who he’d previously stirred up trouble with as fractions of C Grade and Animals Dancing – two long standing parties of undeniable impact on their hometown. Their trance inducing debut on Soft Rocks’ imprint Kinfolk recruited vocals from a lesser known Chet Faker, followed by the bonkers 2014 anthem Kookabura.

After some time in between releases due to an increasingly busy DJ schedule, 2016 sees the release of a Tornado Wallace 12” on Second Circle, sister label to cult Amsterdam archivists Music From Memory, as well as a long overdue and eagerly awaited album Lonely Planet, on Gerd Janson’s Running Back.
