by Lost At E Minor in New Music on Saturday 5 April 2014

In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. We follow them through a typical day in their life, capturing magical moments of artistic expression and getting an inside perspective on what inspires and motivates them.

Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.

We first noticed him after hearing his awesome original tune, Breathe In ft Wafia, a beautifully arranged and produced track that went nuts on Soundcloud after it was picked by a number of influential music blogs.

It’s hardly surprising then that Gab is an avid vinyl collector and is always on the hunt for jazz records, contemporary indie vinyl releases, and sixties and Beatles vinyl. We followed him around to get a sense for a typical day in his interesting (young) life.
