I was lucky enough to be invited to Sydney’s Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange party, where Brazilian nightlife from Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro was joyfully brought into Sydney for a big crowd of competition winners.

When Rolling Stone picked Bonde do Rolê as one of ten bands to watch as far back as 2006, they were onto something.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
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. 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.
