Having operated under the radar over the past few years as one of Australian electronic’s best kept secrets, Melbourne’s Planète (producer and musician Dion Tartaglione) returned recently after a long hiatus with new single ‘Nightcrawler’. Having already been supported by the likes of Mixmag, XLR8R & Bandcamp Weekly, the 7-minute odyssey showcases this unique artist’s talent in creating an intelligent brand of house music.
While quiet on the release front, 2016 has been anything but slow for Planète, who rode the success of previous single ‘Altair’ well into the new year. After doing the rounds on the Summer festival circuits that saw him play at Secret Garden, Paradise, Strawberry Fields and Melbourne’s White Night, he peaked mid-year, playing to a heaving crowd at Splendour in the Grass. Aside from his growing list dof festival appearances, he’s also graced the stage with the likes of Machine Drum, Com Truise, Romare & Pantha Du Prince, quickly building a reputation for his his engaging live set-up and sprawling electronic constructions.
With his engaging live set-up and intelligent electronic constructions, Planète is a name you’re bound to hear plenty of over the coming months.
“This Melbourne producer makes dreamy, playful electronic music that transports you to another world. Trust me, this is perfect for a Friday afternoon.”
– Zan Rowe, Triple J
“shifting with tonal vibrance loaded with percussive flavour.”
” There aren’t many producers who can release tracks well over the five-minute mark and still leave me wanting more, but Planète’s latest single is a real testament to his talent. ”
– Indie Shuffle
“’Altair’ paints a driving, rhytmic soundscape similar in style to artists such as Bonobo and Four Tet. ”
