We are 46 podcasts in, and Austrian born, Melbourne based, multi-creative artist BINI takes control and gifts us with 85 minutes of beautiful electronic music.
There is much emotion throughout the mix. It's a truly angelic listen, filled with rich analogue bass, delicate leads, and melodies that melt the soul. And just when you think you're settled in the sounds grace, you are reminded that electronic music holds no limits, with driving forces that shift you into a dance like state.
BINI, thank you for moulding together such an exquisite mix for the Arteq community. We are incredibly grateful for your efforts, and we know our family will love it!

What direction did you take on the podcast?
Starting out with 'Waterfalls', a dreamy and quite ethereal track by Qrion from a great release on Anjunadeep, I built the mix featuring some of my current favourite artists like Enamour, Bongani, Stan Kolev or Bebetta. My last track is an older Gabe Remix of Luis Junior's 'On A Dream'. Why did you decide to go this way?
A few weeks ago I played a really fun set in the cage at 303 Sydney Road in Brunswick. The crowd was super receptive to my music and it felt great to share the melodic and emotive prog and techno I love with them, which inspired me to include a lot of the tracks I chose that night into this mix.
What did you use to record this mix?
I'm lucky to have a Pioneer V10 mixer at home, which I recorded this mix on alongside some XDJ-1000Mk2s. Where did the name BINI come from?
My real name is Sabine, but my parents have always called me Bini. Later on in life, some of my friends in Melbourne started addressing me like that too by chance, so it's my first ever nickname and it stuck! That's the reason I decided to make it my DJ name.
What inspires you to DJ?
The ultimate reward when playing is to see a person's face in absolute bliss while listening to my music! Bringing joy to people is what inspires me. What is the favourite gig you have played and why?
There are many, so it's hard to pick a favourite, but I had the honour of warming up for Bebetta this Easter Sunday at OneSixOne and it's definitely up there with my top memorable gigs! I was very happy with my set, the crowd was awesome and I got to listen to her amazing tunes afterwards. What’s in the pipeline for 2022?
I'm heading over to Europe in mid-May, so I'm very excited to spend some time working in my home country Austria and other places over their summer. My schedule is looking busy here before I leave and filling up over there also! As a videographer and photographer by trade I have some great projects coming up alongside my music related ventures. One of my upcoming highlights before travelling will be playing before Tinlicker at Bourke Street Courtyard on April 24th. When I return to Australia in November I've got a headline show locked in with Ebony Willis for The Sound Project, which I'm also very excited for!
What do you see for yourself in the next 3-5 years? What have you accomplished?
In terms of music I've been learning how to produce, so I'm hoping to get to a point soon where I feel skilled and confident enough to release something. Additionally, I'd also love to play more festivals and pick up more international gigs in the future and continue to build my videography business both here in Australia and in Europe.
There’s 10 minutes left before the world self destructs, what song do you put on?
None! Putting any music on in that situation would be way too emotional for me.
Is there anything on your mind that you would like to say?
Thanks for having me!
