Platinum-selling Set Mo return for AURORA
Since meeting in the heart of Sydney’s once-thriving Kings Cross district ten years ago, Set Mo – the production duo comprised of Nick Drabble and Stu Turner – has become one of Australia’s signature dance acts, boasting 150+ million plays on streaming services as they become a trademark addition to festival line-ups and club billings around the country and beyond. Initially, the pair began as DJs in Sydney’s late-night house music dens, quickly becoming known as a duo that would traverse through dance music’s many edges including disco, funk, house, and techno. It would become clear; a blend of textures would naturally seep into their sound as they began experimenting with production themselves.
A decade later, Set Mo is one of Australia’s most consistent and successful modern-day dance music acts, with a list of accolades and accomplishments that span almost as long as the list of venues they’ve played to. They’re a rare act that have just as much success in strobe-lit nightclubs as they do in radio and streaming, boasting a platinum-accredited single ‘I Belong Here’ and multiple gold-accredited singles ‘White Dress’, ‘See Right Through Me’ and consistent triple j high rotation amongst sold-out national tours and festival slots at Splendour In The Grass, Listen Out, Beyond The Valley and more.
Now, two years after their sound-defining and at that point career-encapsulating debut album Surrender, Nick Drabble and Stu Turner have grown – a lot. They have evolved from experiences both positive and negative, including Drabble starting a family and Turner’s journey of self-discovery following the end of a long-term relationship. “There’s been a lot of changes,” the pair laugh. Following the release of ‘Feelings’ in March 2022, ‘Something To Dream Of’ continued the evolution for Set Mo – going on to release tracks ‘Out My Mind’ and the hit ‘On Fire’. 2023 is looking like it is only up for Set Mo with releases to come and a run of shows on the horizon.
