KONTRAST Mini-Mix #13.1 – LANI G

KONTRAST Mini-Mix #13-1 - Lani G

Known for her infamous, crazy warehouse parties and her smouldering sets, Lani G has been a stalwart on the Australian underground scene for the last 21 years. 

Starting out playing gabba of all things, Lani has come along way and only now feels she’s truly solidified her sound. Dj’ing and producing sharp, deep and dark techno and house.

Having supported the likes of Phil Hartnoll (Orbital), Shakta, Eric Powell, Mike Dearborn, HMC, Woody McBride, Paul Mac and more. This Melbourne rave queen is set to take you on a journey through a hard soundscape, where acid riffs go to feast.

What got you into electronic music?

When I was 8 years old I heard the album ‘Love and Dancing’ by The Human League, which is a remixed version of their album ‘Dare’. All songs were extended remixes, and it changed my life. I was always searching for that next sound after that, then 6 years later (89’) I heard ‘Humanoid’ by Stakker Humanoid.

Being from the previous generation of ravers, what would you say is different between the new cycle and the previous cycle?

To me the difference between the new and old cycle is that music production quality has gotten a lot better. Other than that I don’t look at the scene and say it’s changed or it’s different. It has evolved, and never stops evolving.

What is techno to you?

Techno to me is a way of life. A religion. A community. And good music.
