noise in my head


Noise In My Head is a freeform sonic excursion piloted by Michael Kucyk. From early beginnings as a long-running cult radio show on Melbourne’s 3RRR FM, it has become a vital nexus in the Australia music scene, and now the identity expands as a DJ, two record labels and party series.

For over 13 years, NIMH has brought together producers, DJs and selectors from all over the world through his radio show, forming links between Australia, Japan, Germany, Sweden, UAE, Canada, the US and beyond throughout the process. The carefully curated program was broadcast on London online institution NTS, alongside regular presenters Andrew Weatherall, Four Tet, Floating Points, Funkineven and Moxie, before ceasing its mission in November 2018.

With two labels, NIMH’s quest to share mind bending musical anomalies doesn’t end. Noise In My Head Records has released Suzanne Kraft and Lucy Cliché, as well as collaborating with Butter Sessions for the all-local compilation series Domestic Documents. Simultaneously, Efficient Space has established itself as a vital retrospective imprint. The label has spotlighted unsung dub master Andy Rantzen and the remarkable Indigenous recordings of Waak Waak Djungi, while co-ordinating four compilations - 3AM Spares, Midnite Spares, Oz Waves and the defining coming-of-age record Sky Girl.
