29 Apr 2016

Currently residing in Neukoelln, Berlin, SAE Adelaide Diploma of Audio Engineering graduate Emma Sainsbury is no stranger to the music scene.

Having played at various nightclubs throughout Australia including Revolver, Vineyard, Killing Time, Spice Cellar, SASH, Spice, Ivy Pool Club, The Island, Sugar,

Electric Circus, Limbo and Laruche as well as festivals including Stereosonic and Splendour in the Grass, Emma has also added to her extensive music portfolio clubs around Europe (Germany, France, Spain, Great Britain) Asia and United Arab Emirates.

After promoting parties and booking artists for years in Sydney, Emma currently runs a regular party dubbed ‘Moonlighting’ at a club called Farbfernseher in Kreuzberg and has had the opportunity to tour and travel to many countries she says she may otherwise have never made it to.

“When I started at SAE I was a DJ and classical instrumentalist, since [completing] the course I’ve worked as a music producer, radio producer, sound designer, music stylist, audio engineer, promoter, booker and programmer for venues, tour manager, logistics manager for a booking agency, label manager, artist agent and many other roles within the industry,” says Emma.

Emma, who “thoroughly enjoys a well placed disco double clap,” was interested in writing electronic music and began at SAE Adelaide in the Certificate III in Electronic Music Production course. From there she continued on into the Diploma in Audio Engineering.

“The structure of the course worked well with my life and work, the content was in line with what I wanted to learn and the staff and lecturers are SAE Adelaide were great, knowledgeable and supportive,” she says.

Working under two monikers, “Eluize” (Deep, Dark, Melodic, House, Techno & Acid) and “Alley O” (formerly Alley Oop) (Sunshine music, straight up house, disco & electric boogie), the full-time artist, DJ and producer, is about to launch her own label ‘Night Tide’ in May. The first EP, ‘Talk In Technicolour’’, will feature her work as “Eluize” with three original tracks that showcase her unique sound released on 12" Vinyl & Digi

Amongst many of Emma’s aspirations one her most inspiring is “to be a good role model for upcoming women in electronic music.”

Emma’s upcoming shows include Aboutblank in Berlin with Prosumer (May 7), Watergate in Berlin (May 27) and 22fest in Amsterdam (July 23).
