COOPER Dodge, the man behind the popular synth project SBMRGE, has created a new title for himself to venture into a new style of music.
First published in the 13 February edition of the Warragul & Baw Baw Citizen.
The Drouin muso told the Warragul & Baw Baw Citizen his new project, Peruw, was created to show his house and techno side.
“I chose to do this new material totally separate from SBMRGE for now,” he said.
“I would like to keep SBMRGE as something I can work with simply for the fun… whereas I’d like to develop Peruw into…, very possibly, a live act.”
“The name Peruw stemmed from a crazy story I shared with [friends] on Australia Day about a man I met the night before who had just moved from Peru to Australia.
“SBMRGE will stay a project. I’m sitting on a few unreleased tracks at the moment and am piecing together another featuring the vocals of Tanya Batt (BATTS).
Cooper’s first song under the new name, “Moons”, was released earlier this month and has already had almost 900 streams on SoundCloud. His fixation with the style developed quite recently.
“In the last year or so my I’ve developed a somewhat crazy love of house and garage music. The idea of making Peruw a thing came around probably two and a half months ago.”
You can hear “Moons” and future Peruw releases online at soundcloud.com/peruwmusic.
