Setwun & the Soulstranauts: The Hills Are Alive

setwun website

Setwun is the musical brainchild of composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist and DJ, Josh Panakera-Molony. Already a much respected figure on Eora (Sydney)’s underground scene, the hype for those on the outside has been bubbling with every small offering and tip-offs from some of the world’s most revered. In a short span of time, those who have championed his music include Stamp The Wax, Gilles Peterson, Alexander Nut, Carista, Steve Spacek and Touching Bass. After a big 2020, it feels as though the enigmatic reputation that surrounds Setwun might not retain itself for much longer. The versatile music mind made waves internationally with a string of output that has given him the rubber-stamp as one of Australia’s most exciting. Covering a broad spectrum of sounds, Setwun’s music moves with ease from low slung grooves to dance floor tempos, all with a permeable undercurrent of soul-jazz influence.

Setwun and the Soulstranauts will be supported by Natalie Slade.
