On its quest to find the unsung heroes of underground dance music, Gavin Keitel, Nubreed, King Unique, Ben Korbel and Agent 86 have all been featured on the past editions of Electric. With each showcasing their own sound, no set musical formulas are followed across the series. For the 5th instalment, the EQ team has employed New Zealand DJ Emerson Todd. Absolutely adored on the dancefloors of his adopted home of Sydney, he has since made a move to the UK. From releasing singles to helming the mixing board for The Presets and his recent collabo with Tim Green, ‘Exercise’, Emerson has been played by everyone from Sasha & Digweed to Richie Hawtin. This is a mix that moves through the many shades of house and techno, from deep and warm, to dark and rolling, but never once takes itself too seriously.
