Bio

Foura (previously Lotus Moonchild) is Melbourne's dance music bench mark, confidently djing and producing a path through bass, electronic, garage, house and techno.

Foura’s ability as a selector for dancefloors has garnered the position as resident at Revolver Upstairs, Glamorama, Section 8 and Lucky Coq, all institutions within the city of Melbourne.

The host of the ​Off Licence events at Melbourne's premiere container bar Section 8, has allowed Foura to curate niche music agendas with greater representation for gender diversity. Line ups include an array of Australian dance music DJ’s with an emphasis on proportionate female line ups.

Upon impressing audiences as an informed and wicked selector, Foura has earned a valued membership with music tastemakers The Operatives and has been included to endorse the world renowned DJ audio brand, AIAIAI. Big Australian festivals including Babylon, Beyond The Valley, Let Them Eat Cake, Falls Festival and Earthcore have a place on stage for Foura’s genre blending style. Continued support from local agencies has led to performing alongside premier international and local acts including: DJ EZ, Conducta, Tokimonsta, Madam X, Troyboi, Flava D, Giraffage, Joe Kay, Ekali, Nina Las Vegas and Djemba Djemba.

The tipping point in production was the 2019 unofficial release of Foura’s DNTWNTU (Jorja Smith Remix)​. The remix defined a signature sound that presented elevated house synths, jumping snares and garage bass. In early 2020 ​Stand By Sharon ​(prod. Lotus Moonchild) was packaged on the ​As We Know It ​compilation, the premiere release from Revolver Upstairs Records and was a stand out garage heater.

During the 2020 pandemic Foura forged ahead with the ​Pressure remix for Revolver partner in crime Binosfki, resulting in a feelgood house jam, reminiscent of hands high dancefloors.

The release of ​My Truth with vocalist Emy Zaluzna points to a strong ability to write songs, not just tracks, paving the way for a big future, post pandemic, pre 2021 festivals. ​My Truth is a nod to 2000’s UK 2 Step sound, that crossed garage into the mainstream.

This is the sort of ukg that I find appealing - restrained but still laden with enough production that it'll fill a dancefloor

You've managed to get across a wavy, emotional push and pull in this relatively simple track. The roll through of the keyboard chords, the shuffle of the break beat and the minimal "you and me..." lyrics manage to convey so much feeling. I really appreciate that momentary tempo change at the end too because, it gave me a look at all the genres that have guided you as a producer. ...

You've managed to get across a wavy, emotional push and pull in this relatively simple track. The roll through of the keyboard chords, the shuffle of the break beat and the minimal "you and me..." lyrics manage to convey so much feeling. I really appreciate that momentary tempo change at the end too because, it gave me a look at all the genres that have guided you as a producer. You've captured the soul of the early 2000s garage scene, creating a track that we can smile and bounce around to when we need to shake somber thoughts away.
