Pulsing tribal drums, full-bodied basslines and melodies that ooze with groove are the trademarks of Josh Glenny and Sean McDermott, otherwise known as SEVADER. The project that began with youthful enthusiasm in 2016 has won over audiences on several continents and is paying dividends, on and off the dancefloor.

The pair have travelled extensively to write their music so it’s no coincidence that SEVADER translated means ‘to escape’. Versatile producers and equally skilled behind the decks, the duo have already graced a number of impressive stages including festivals Your Paradise and Arcadia, with many more in their sights.

Their signature production style features percussive elements that swirl and create suspense before releasing the listener into a soothing yet infectious groove. Australian labels Club Sweat and Hot Sunday Records recognised their potential early on, followed closely by international imprints such as Doorlys ‘Reptile Dysfunction’, RÜFÜS DU SOLs ‘Rose Avenue Records’, LA label ‘Percomaniacs’ and more.

Leading the charge in 2019 with official remixes for Cassian, Poolclvb & Thandi Phoenix and a 2 track EP, the duo also began curating their own monthly series entitled ‘SEVADER Select’ which champions their favourite tracks and rewards loyal fans & followers with new material before it is officially released.

SEVADER are expected to take things to the next level in 2020 with a highly anticipated release on Club Sweat set to deliver at the height of the Australian summer festival season. Don’t be fooled by their laidback personas, the pair spend more time in the studio than on the iconic beaches of their hometown Noosa and are poised to charm the global music scene with their distinctive sound...
