Spanning over two decades supporting the Australian independent music scene, Damian Coward is a lifelong advocate of the DIY ethic.
Starting in 1996 with his first label, Building Records, followed by OSCL and now his new project Trait Records, he has a combined release tally of 50 recordings spanning all formats and genres. Also a musician himself, Damian currently plays bass in experimental post-punk/noise outfit Kollaps (Melbourne), and was a co-founder and drummer of numerous other acts like High Tension, Heirs and The Night Terrors.
Touring nationally (and internationally) more times than he can count, both playing and as a tour manager, he has self-funded Australian tours for bands like Alcest, Off Minor, Pilot To Gunner, Your Black Star, This Night Creeps and a ton more.
His Bag Of Mix focussed heavily on the current release schedule from Trait Records, plus some new favourites for measure.
