Hosted by Naarm based DJ/producer Sullivan Patten, the series platforms artists, hearing direct from the source about what makes them fizz. Series one features interviews with artists Alice Skye, June Jones, pgz, Pillow Pro & Mulalo, as they walk through the music videos that have shaped them.
These artists showcase their eclectic style and backgrounds through their chosen videos, as Post Mix attempts to become a level up from a static audio playlist, offering a deeper, sensory conversation for music loving audiences.
“Growing up watching shows like Rage and Recovery, it was always so cool to dive deeper into the artists that I loved, and who eventually influenced my own work,” Patten says.
“To hear from their perspective was engaging, and I like to think that Post Mix can add some context to what you’re hearing when you listen to the artists that we’ve featured.
“In a time where we’re starved of live music, it’s nice to have an opportunity to connect audiences with local musicians who are committed to creating and evolving.”
