JDG performs at FriBays in Mornington, Australia.
In the past two years, Melbourne bounce has stormed into clubs like shoppers at Best Buy on Black Friday. Thanks to off-beat basslines, dirty Dutch-style melodies and bending synths, bounce has catapulted artists like Will Sparks, Joel Fletcher, Deorro, and TJR onto main stages at the world’s biggest festivals.
Australia is a hotbed for other innovative production styles, too, and one of them is just now emerging. Drawing from bounce and minimal house, the sound combines ’80s-style basslines with airy vocal leads that result in a unique dynamic of bass and treble. Midway through, ghostly drops give way to extended trance-style breakdowns, similar to progressive house.
Plenty of producers have expanded on bounce in the past, but there’s a consistency in this movement that separates it. Some people call the style “meltrance” or “kick-bass,” but we think it’s too early to justify a new genre name. One thing’s for sure though — it’s an evolution of bounce and something to definitely keep an eye on.

Rising DJ/producer Henry Fong launched a label this week, Banzai Recs, and the first release is one of his own productions.
Titled “Le Disco,” the track combines elements of Melbourne bounce, electro house, funk, and as its name suggests, disco. Supporters include Dyro, Dannic, Laidback Luke, Will Sparks, Uberjakd, among others.
Fong wrote on his Facebook page: “I’ve always wanted my own platform that I have full creative control over, that also really defines my sound. Sometimes I don’t want to feel pressured to make records that have to fit the mold of other labels in order to get signed.”
He continued: “We have some great releases already lined up for this year from some talented up and coming producers … I’m always down to support new artists too, so if you guys think you have music you’d want to sign please send demos to email@example.com”
