Beats by Beat: Foura’s feel-good set celebrates the resilience of the electronic community

Words by Sam Howard

Welcome to Beats by Beat, our mix series for electronic music lovers. Head here if you missed the previous Beats by Beat mix, produced by unconventional electronic producer, Kavil.

They say you can’t take the party scene out of Melbourne, and it’s true. Despite some of the world’s most hectic restrictions, local electronic music lovers are finding innovative ways to connect, network and dance together during lockdown.

Foura, formerly known as Lotus Moonchild, has long been a staple of the city, running parties and holding residencies at some of our favourite locations, including Revolver, Section 8, Lucky Coq, Glamorama and Hawker Hall, to name a few.

She frequents the Melbourne Music Week lineup and has played festivals including Let Them Eat Cake, Beyond the Valley and Falls Festival.

A shift in normality led to Foura deciding on a rebrand – with a new sound for a new persona, thanks to the support of the City of Melbourne COVID-19 Arts Grant.

Foura’s new production, ‘My Truth’ featuring Emy Zaluzna, has just been released as an ode to isolation and the strength of the community which continues to flourish despite the circumstances.

Foura has delivered a feel-good set surrounding her new track and Beat Magazine got the chance to sit down and find out more in a one-on-one interview about missing human connection, Zoom parties, longing for the Revolver dance floor, and finding creativity through harder times.

Find Foura on Spotify here and check out her Beats by Beat mix below.
