Germany, Holland, England and Spain – these are the European nations synonymous with modern electronic music. Looking a little deeper, Italy, France, Scotland and Belgium also house prominent electronic scenes. Hungary, on the other hand, barely enters the competition.

Honesty is enormously important for Alison Wonderland. Maybe it’s down to the level of personal involvement in each and every one of her tracks - she’s a bassist, a cellist, and now most prominently a vocalist. Maybe it’s related to the perfectionism and humility that underpins the way she speaks about her work.

 

“I definitely think a lot of there’s a lot of variation...

“It's all about patterns. You have to think about loops and layers, beats and samples, as much as you think about the way you put together a sentence, breathe, or just put one thought after another.” Paul D.
