On Thursday January 26, local producer TOYO (a.k.a. Jarrod Bartlett) played at the Australian of the Year Awards. This is absolutely newsworthy, because get this: he also became the first person to ever play amplified music in the new Parliament House marble foyer. The first song he played was also one of his own, ‘Wilderness’, which is currently unreleased. Not bad for an up and coming local, huh?
TOYO’s single ‘Wonderlust’ came in at #18 on BMA Magazine’s Top 50 Canberra songs of 2016. If you ever needed a reason to check out some local electronic talent, now you’ve got it. Acquaint yourself with his productions and remixes at soundcloud.com/toyomusic.
