Bio

“In a dazzling display of rhythmic showmanship, Australian Athlete is this country’s proper answer to Todd Terje. Taking electronica and mating it with disco aesthetics and groove-inducing obsessions, the talented artist has a new form of all-body production. His sounds are inspired by the waters with a warm, and real, feel. Surf ‘N’ Turf is of the highest echelon of contemporary dance music.” AAA Backstage

“It's dazzling and feet-moving in the best of ways, uniting this warm, nostalgic synth with a driving bassline and irresistible groove which is simply infectious.” PileRats

“Sydney prodigy Australian Athlete has come seemingly out of nowhere and dropped his killer debut single Surf ‘n’ Turf  a disco-dipped jam, giving us an early days Touch Sensitive vibe, filling us with that bubbly funk nostalgia.” Stoney Roads

Love Florian on the vocals, love the moodiness of this lil disco number. The phone call exchange is way cute too.
