Having operated under the radar over the past few years as one of Australian electronic's best kept secrets, Melbourne's Planète returned recently after a long hiatus with new single 'Nightcrawler'. Having already been supported by the likes of Mixmag, XLR8R & Bandcamp Weekly, the 7-minute odyssey showcases this unique artist's talent in creating an intelligent brand of house music.
While quiet on the release front, 2016 was anything but slow for Planète, who rode the success of previous single 'Altair' well into the new year. After doing the rounds on the Summer festival circuits that saw him play at Secret Garden, Paradise, Strawberry Fields and Melbourne’s White Night, he peaked mid-year, playing to a heaving crowd at Splendour in the Grass. Aside from his growing list of festival appearances, he's also graced the stage with the likes of Machine Drum, Com Truise, Romare & Pantha Du Prince, quickly building a reputation for his engaging live set-up and sprawling electronic constructions.
