Air Max ’97 Makes Decisions

Thursday 25th July / presented by Darcy Love

London-based by way of Melbourne and New Zealand, Air Max '97 (aka Oliver van der Lugt) is an artist, DJ and producer specialising in "oblique club trax" and "nightmare dance music", weaving their way through the lower reaches of abstract bass.

Their new EP Falling Not Walking, out now via their record label DECISIONS, delivers four tracks written for dystopian dancefloors, their first since their 2018 LP Nacre, including collaborative pieces with Mancurian producer LOFT and Nervous Horizon's TSVI.

RTRFM's own Darcy Love caught up with Air Max '97 for a wide-ranging chat, covering the new EP, what goes into running DECISIONS, Australia's underground electronic scene, their exciting new side-project Backlit and what their plans are in the near future.

Darcy began their chat by asking Oliver about Falling Not Walking and their ideas behind the EP, which you can hear below.
