Rave Radio

If you’re not familiar with the dynamic electro duo that is Rave Radio, you’re about to, as they’ll be helping you bring in the New Year at Homehouse – chances are they’re going to get quite familiar with you too. We had a chat with the group fresh from two weeks of Schoolies shows, their warm-up for New Year’s.
Hello Guys, thanks for taking the time to chat to Forte Magazine, where abouts are you are now?
We are now back at the Gold Coast for Christmas – just returned from USA & Brazil tour.
For those who aren’t familiar with who you are, can you give us a rundown of what it is you do?
We play very loud music and jump around for a living.
Last year, things took a step up for you guys on the back of Make It Rain, and now you’re rocking festivals and touring the country, that must be a great feeling. Was this what you set out to do with your music?
Make It Rain is actually one of our first releases when we started the project. We have had a tonne of new music since then. We have always set out for the goal for everyone to want to hear our music and fall in love with it from their first listen.
You are coming off doing Stereosonic I believe? How was that for you guys in 2014, it must always be a big week or two?
Yeah Stereosonic combined with two weeks of Schoolies shows was one hell of fortnight and defiantly has to be one of our funnest times of the year. The crowds are just up for it so much more.
If you were to define your style of music, beyond ‘electro’, how would you explain what people can expect from Rave Radio tracks?
At the moment we’re writing all sorts of tracks covering many different genres – lets just say 2015 is going to be a HUGE year on the music front for us.
The way in which we consume your genre of music has changed a lot over the last couple of years, what’s the best way to check out your tunes?
For us we have always found iTunes or Soundcloud to be the best platform to hear our music.
Does any thought go into where you guys play NYE, I imagine it’s an extra special night?
Always, it’s one of the biggest shows of the year so we always make sure we are bringing a brand new experience for our fans.
You have played all around Australia so how does Geelong compare when it comes to partying during sets?
I have to be completely honest here and say some of our craziest shows have been at Home House, that place is always electric and up for the drop.
Do you guys like to let your hair down after shows? Should punters be coming up to you with invites to the after party on NYE, or is it straight back to the hotel for shower and bed?
We are always down to party and love meeting new people every week, so don’t be shy come up and say hello and who knows where the night will lead us.
Anything you would like to add?
Yes, we both love the Geelong Cats!
When & Where: Homehouse, Geelong – December 31
