Riding The New Wave Of NZ’s Electronic Scene with Race Banyon

With a population of 4 million, New Zealand is one of the least crowded countries on earth. But with a high concentration of artists and musicians it's also among the most densely packed places in terms of creative talent. One of the rising stars of the electronic scene is Race Banyon (aka Lontalius, aka Eddie Johnston). Eddie’s only 17, but is already winning praise from a range of overseas producers, including Ryan Hemsworth. He's riding the crest of a new wave of electronic producers, and is well placed to give us the low down on the local sounds. Here's a mix he made for us highlighting some key players in New Zealand at the moment.
