Dave Miller

Hailing from Perth, Western Australia, the physical seclusion of living in the most isolated city in the world has inspired Dave Miller to create truly modern forms of electronic music. As a representation of his cities multicultural population, Dave’s music incorporates all facets of his favourite styles of music from which he builds something entirely new. In the mid-late 90’s, before he was legal-age, weekends saw him sneaking into bars that were playing everything from deep Chicago house to Detroit techno, while the weekdays saw him listening to early IDM-influenced electronica.

Culprit 1

Culprit 1 creates beat-fuelled symphonies that incorporate the elements of DJ Shadow, The Prodigy, Orbital, and The Chemical Brothers to create a new blueprint for 21st century electronica. Culp’s unusual arrangements and three-minute sampladelic symphonies have won praise across the entire musical spectrum. From Mixmag and Drowned in Sound, to BBC Radio 1 and Classic FM, his appeal is universal thanks to a songwriting nous and structural brevity honed over years of study in both conservatoires and clubs.
