There's something about Australia that seems to make it the perfect setting for producing electronic music. Whether it's the barren landscape, the ridiculously hot temperatures, or the abundance of poisonous shit - them Aussies sure can make a beat and a half. For evidence, look no further than Sydney's own Marco Vella, who this week announced his collaborative debut LP - Shadow Mountain - which drops on August 14th via Berlin-based Average Negative.

And if lead single 'Why' is anything to go by, the future looks bright for the young producer. Pretty much as sensual as music get without being classed as pornography, the synth-laden landscape created by Vella is sure to get you tingling in all the right places. Definitely one for the 'Lovemaking Time' playlist on your iTunes.
