Melbourne has emerged over the last half decade as a one of the most exciting destinations for underground music. Francis Inferno Orchestra is among the most esteemed talents to emerge from Australia’s creative capital. His wonky discofied yet off kilter, house sound which has one step in the past and one toward the future, has also permeated the Superconscious label he runs alongside Fantastic Man. A label which champions australian music & beyond and already in it’s youthful lifespan become a ‘one to watch’ in the underground scene.
The Australian DJ/Producer made the breakthrough to the international scene with ease – and has kept heads spinning with a stream of seriously danceable releases since 2010. Presenting house and techno classics alongside esoteric rare oddities from beyond his years, FIO’s DJ sets are a low – brow history lesson – respecting the past without being a slave to it. He has grown to become a key figure of Melbourne’s always growing underground dance scene, being invited across the country and further abroad, where he is now a firm regular on the international circuit.
2014 saw the release of FIO’s debut album A New Way of Living which was met with great reception and proved just how much talent this unique young artist holds. Since then he has been busy in the studio turning out sought after 12″s such as the “Where will you be spending eternity?” that included the hit ‘ Harmony’ and “Oasis & A Time”, as well as a number of esteemed remixes.
