If you’ve had a read of Nina Las Vegas’ list of five local producers to watch, you would have seen homegrown fast-riser Rainbow Chan get a shout-out. As NLV put it, Rainbow Chan – yes, that’s her real name – has carved out her place in the local scene with music that’s “heavily layered, warm and boundary pushing”.
In the months since that article, it’s been all systems go for the Sydney-bred talent. She’s performed at OutsideIn as part of Since I Left You, the live recreation of The Avalanches’ seminal album (we called her a “ball of crazy talent and energy” at the time), dropped her stellar Long Vacation EP and generated enough buzz from that to both successfully use Pozible to crowd-fund its vinyl pressing and get Yeah Yeah Yeahs man Nick Zinner to sign up for a remix.
So with her profile getting bigger by the day, we tracked Rainbow Chan down for a catch up.
