Firstly, this is our personal list and is by no means the be all and end all. Secondly we made a point of not doubling up on bands, couldnt have both Flume albums, all three RÃœFÃœS albums and then filled out the remainder with Presets albums now could we? Third and finally this list is a relatively modern one, nothing before 2000, so please older scene heads: dont shoot us.
Theres no doubt that since the turn of the century Australias been influencing the greater electronic music world with a slew of killer releases. Weve compiled a couple of lists of classic Aussie dance bangers before, but this time weve taken it one step further to honour those whove compiled full albums of absolute choons!
