House music is a sound increasingly reverberating from the walls of music venues and shaking the fences of festival paddocks across Australia.
Dom Dolla, one of Australia's pre-eminent house producers, is bringing his unique sound to Ballarat for the highly anticipated Spilt Milk Festival in November. Over the past few years his star has risen with his releases Take It and Define combining for more than 30 million listens on Spotify and he has an ARIA nomination under his belt from his shoulder-thrusting track Be Randy.
"It's really interesting to see how regional America's regional music tastes are changing. It's really exciting to see regional America keep up with the rest of it," Dolla, who has been touring the US this year, said.

Coming to Spilt Milk excites him and he says the festival vibe is amplified in places like Ballarat.
"The best thing about playing regional shows is the audience is just so much more excited to be there," Dolla said.
"They give it their all, they're belting the lyrics out as loud as they can, they're dancing as hard as they can because they don't have the opportunity to do it every other weekend."
Spilt Milk is on November 30 at Victoria Park.
