EMC’s stewardship of electronic music culture in Australia and abroad is vital now more than ever as we all rebuild a more culturally-rich, diverse, connected, sustainable and equitably prosperous dance music community. I’m honoured to join the EMC Advisory Board in such esteemed company, and play a contributing role to a community and scene I’ve been so closely connected with for decades.
