Hidden identities and non-existent internet presence will either aid or hinder a producer. This is because the music becomes the one offering that’s relied upon to bring audiences back, instead of  being assisted by overactive social media feeds pluging gig and mix announcements. Don Blaster is an example of someone who’s from the anonymity path and doing it well.


Don Blaster (left) & Catalyst from Back Burners

He comes from the Melbourne based duo, Back Burners, who are predominantly a live act and production team. However, he also has a lust for spinning tunes. If you were to only know Don Blaster from the Back Burners operation, you wouldn’t pick that he’s not only a slayer of the TR-8, but also a heat bringer behind the decks as you will hear with this two hour mix.

Don Blaster can only be reached through Back Burners.
