Rings Around Saturn

Rings Around Saturn is one of many production aliases from Melbourne native Rory McPike. Since 2014 he has released records on various formats and labels from the UK to Canada and worked closely with a small community of upcoming Australian labels. The hardware-centric studio experiments are just as suited to home listening as they are in a club setting and live sets often range from ambient to electro and into the fringes of bass music and jungle. A heavy interest in science-fiction literature and film dictates his aesthetics and approach to producing music over anything else. He desires to take sound-palettes from classic eras of music and re-mould them with a mixture of vintage and current equipment into works that are characteristically modern and experimental, and he is constantly pushing himself into new territories with each new release.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
