Birthed of the Australian bush and cultured through it’s ever-expanding and influential electronic music scene, Monotreme surfaces. Influenced by multi-genre music gatherings, streaks of dark progressive, glitch hop, chill broken beat and deep tech taint this unique brand of minimal bush techno. Bassic Record’s long time family artist Storm puts forth this new alias, with a focus on minimal and deep progressive flavours, be it sinister and mischievous or stunningly melodic. His productions have won the remix competition of glitch hop legend, Mr Bill’s “Cheyah”, and gained continuous support from progressive/tech/dub innovator Grouch. Monotreme's approaching releases include remixes of Ken Zo on the forthcoming Bassic Records VA, of Doppel for his upcoming Tension EP and his debut Monotreme EP later in 2018.
A resident of Australia’s freshest boutique festival Rabbits Eat Lettuce (along with sister festivals Bohemian Beatfreaks and others), Monotreme/Storm continuously delivers electrifying sets on their main stages, warming crowds to the core or tearing craters through the dancefloor. His flavor fashioned to intimate indoor settings and monstrous outdoor landscapes has seen him play from Dragon Dreaming to Yemaya festivals, with Melbourne collectives such as The Breakfast Club, My Aeon and Doesn't Matter, all the way north to Byron Bay’s Essential Intentions and headlining North Queensland’s premier house and techno parties, DEPTH. His most important domestic performance to date is Victoria’s foremost festival of electronica, Strawberry Fields, at which Storm was chosen to directly support Carl Craig, Moodymann and Tiga on the festival’s main stage. In 2017 Monotreme made his international debuts featuring at Denmark's Somewhere Festival and the Bassic Records Summer Showcase at Grønttorvet 64 in Copenhagen alongside One Man Orchestra, Victor Y and ZigMon.
