An Inaccurate History of Electronic Dance Music

Melbourne violinist/vocalist XANI has been busy cooking up a brand new live show with collaborator Justin Olssen (drums) called “An Inaccurate History of Electronic Dance Music”.

Inspired by the history of electronic dance music and DJs’ club selections from northern soul to disco, high energy and happy hardcore to grunge and 90s techno, and including a big, dirty dollop of trance, An Inaccurate History of Electronic Dance Music is Xani’s new live show. Featuring a mixture of improvised and composed music, extreme energy and electronic effects, this new project is all created within the world of improvised, art-rock and contemporary music using live looping and electronic effects.

Collaborator Justin Olsson (drums) joins the project, lending his jazz and improvisation chops and love of pop music to this electronic dance music experience. Justin blendis acoustic drum kit with loops and samples, and tests his skills with 190bpm.

Stay tuned for more about this exciting new project.
