Broadcasting hit music from SAE campuses around the world, Energy Groove is one of the world’s largest digital commercial radio networks – and a great place for students to get hands-on broadcasting experience and showcase their music to the world.
Since partnering with SAE in 2011, Energy Groove has grown from a single digital radio service based in Sydney to a network of seven stations located across Australia, the UK, France, Italy, Germany, the US and Spain.
Targeting a youth audience, the network broadcasts commercial-free hit music - all day, every day. It can be listened to anywhere in the world through www.energy-groove.com, iTunes Radio and a free mobile iPhone and Android app, TuneIn. Since 2012, Energy Groove has also featured on Emirates Airlines in-flight entertainment.
As well as providing a real-world environment for SAE students to learn valuable radio presentation and production skills, the network delivers a global audience for students to promote their own DJ mixes and music projects.
In Australia, Energy Groove is spearheaded by the Regional Manager of Talent and Programs, Brad Duence. Based at the SAE Sydney campus, Brad produces program content, manages on-air talent and helps shape the station's sound through program initiatives and music scheduling.
An SAE animation graduate, Duence is also helping to deliver SAE’s Short Course in Digital Broadcasting.
In 2015, Energy Groove launched its record label, Energy Groove Recordings, to kickstart the careers of emerging artists, including SAE students. The label will enable artists to professionally produce, record and distribute their music internationally.
Since launching the label, Energy Groove Recordings has signed two SAE artists from the UK and SAE Perth Bachelor of Audio student, Chelsea Cullen.
