After a string of records under his own name—Mic Newman—Fantastic Man was spawned as a flippant alias for house edits and club oddities in 2011. Almost a decade on, the Fantastic Man sound has evolved into something a little more varied and more difficult to pin down, with an ever-growing catalog of releases sprawling in all directions of the electronic spectrum. Garnering him many fans and support from his peers, his records on his own Superconscious Records are cult classics, while others have become highly sought after. As a DJ, Newman is experienced and revered. His versatile sets result from his early years cutting his teeth in the varied circuit of the Melbourne club scene, which he's carried over to his new home base in Berlin.
