Groundbreaking Aussie producer and DJ, Alison Wonderland is quickly rising to the top of the Australian music scene, from beginnings as a darling of the Sydney DJ circuit, to attracting national and international attention as a producer in her own right.
The elusive mistress of the decks has been praised by the likes of Annie Mac and Diplo, who featured her DJ set on his BBC Radio 1 show, touting her as "one of the best DJs from Australia."
Her debut five-track EP ‘Calm Down’, released locally through EMI sat pretty at the top of the iTunes charts, racking up two million streams across her Soundcloud and mass hysteria on her 110,000 strong Facebook following. Alison released the EP via US label powerhouse Astralwerks, home to the likes of The Chemical Brothers, Hot Chip and Eric Prydz.
The EP featured Hype Machine-topper ‘I Want U’ and frantic second single ‘Cold,’ collaborations with Mad Decent’s Djemba Djemb and Norway's Lido, and vocals from the leading lady herself. Showcasing an original blend of pop, techno, trap, future beats and more, her dynamic approach to music-making set her up for glowing reviews from media and industry alike.
Renowned for her next-level production and intricate sets, Alison Wonderland’s musical prowess extends far beyond her mixing decks. Growing up, she was a principal cellist in the Sydney Youth Orchestra and bass player in an indie rock outfit, skills, which have undoubtedly influenced the style and complexity of her productions. It wasn't until she first heard The Knife's seminal album Silent Shout that she really 'discovered' electronic music, promptly buying a laptop to learn to create her own.
Wonderland has performed in LA at the official Grammy’s Afterparty, all throughout Ibiza on top of MOS and the Brit Awards Afterparty in London. In Australia she has torn up main stages at Splendour in the Grass, Falls Festival, Southbound Festival, Stereosonic, Field Day, Parklife (nationally), Good Vibrations Festival, Harbourlife, Sydney Fashion Week, Future Music Festival, Coaster Festival, Secret Garden Festival and more, not to mention her sellout headline national tours.
Today, her stand-out live shows, innovative music production and striking videos have won her fans the world over – and she’s only just getting started. Selling out 4000 capacity shows as part of her innovative Wonderland Warehouse Project in under 24 hours, Alison’s loyal fan-base continue to grow alongside her profile.
On the road to global domination, with a full album slated for early 2015, Alison Wonderland continues to be a force to be reckoned with.
Alison Wonderland is the party, rumour has it she never sleeps and is reasonably good friends with Oprah.
