"Ready to step out of the bedroom and onto the centerstage."
"There is a slippery bridging of man-made sounds clashing with true human emotion, revealing a perplexing musical conundum that sets UV boi aside as a stand out producer in the scene."
"What a talent..."

"I imagine a massive Middle Earth kingdom materializing in the distance as a heavy fog rolls over the hills."

UV boi فوق بنفسجي is the Tumblrfied aesthetic musical project of 19-year-old Brisbane based producer Emmanuel John. With a knack for creating mellow, genre-melding music that still respects the beat of the 808, he is without a doubt one of the most refreshing new producers coming on to the scene.
With accolades including a collaboration with influential producer Ryan Hemsworth and a J Award nomination for ‘Unearthed Artist of the Year’. 2015 also saw UV boi sell out an Australian club tour, as well as landing a spot amongst the next wave of young Australian talent as part of the David Jones‘Watch This Space’ campaign.
Dominating sets at Soundscape Festival, FOMO Festival and Beyond the Valley, UV Boi has honed his live skills with a myriad of support slots for the likes of Yung Lean, Flosstradamus, Kaytranada, Tkay Maidza, SOPHIE and Lido. By now you could call him a regular on the AUS festival circuit, with appearances at Outside In, Listen Out and Splendour in the Grass.
After gaining a cult following and amassing over over a million collective Spotify streams with singles like "If She, If He" ft. EASTGHOST and "Show You" ft. MTNS he released his debut self-produced EP 「L-UV」on March 18th.
