Australia’s Uone On Balance Duties

For Balance’s latest in their Balance Series, home-grown hero Uone has stepped up to the plate and delivered a mesmerising two-part mix, earning his stripes among the likes of previous artists KölschPatrice Bäumel and Darius Syrossian.

Every single track that has made its way into the mix was born and bred in Uone’s very own studio, be it an original from the artist, a remix or a collaboration – and when it comes to collaborations, there is no shortage of them. With an extensive guest list spanning both parts, featured artists include Mojo Filter, Out of Sorts, Soda Klop, Jay Haze (aka Fuckpony), Adam Freeland, Jamie Stevens and Jonas Saalbach.

The mix has been brewing for over two and a half years, with elements from stints abroad sneaking their way in to the process, culminating in a truly rare blend of sounds, seamlessly transitioning between deep house and techno, all whilst borrowing elements from trance, progressive and genres you’ve never heard of.

Uone has trekked across the globe in search of experiences to weave into his own creations, leading a nomadic existence for over a decade to freely absorb the array of cultures and music that have found their way into his unique production. With appearances on stages at international festivals like Burning Man (USA), Fusion (Germany) and Oregon Eclipse (Canada), as well as a healthy run around Australia’s festival circuit, such widespread live performances have moulded themselves into his own style of music.

The full mix is out on October 5th through Balance Music. In the meantime check the preview link below…
