Feral Media’s origins as a record label can be traced to Lismore in regional NSW, Australia. Label founder Danny Jumpertz was studying there between 1998-2000, and it was from that student pool that Danny made the connections that would provide Feral Media with many of its early releases – the members of Plankton, Mieli (Ryan Gobbe) and Comatone (Greg Seiler) were all fellow music students at Southern Cross University.

Between 2000 and 2002, Feral Media was based in Melbourne, where Danny was a music producer at SBS. During this time, the rising Melbourne scene & emerging bands sourced from SBS’s Whatever Music Project provided Feral Media with fresh talent which included Barrage (originally from Brisbane), ii, The Emergency, Minimum Chips, Catnip, David Elliot Incigneri, and Sydney bands Underlapper and Sparrow Hill.

During 2002 Feral Media began an art and design collaboration with the Sopp Collective, one that continues to this day. They have designed the lion’s share of Feral Media’s artwork and packaging, but the collaboration runs much deeper than that, to include branding, art installations (at parties, gigs and the Ongoing Moment project), t-shirts and retail displays. Sopp has been intrinsic in authoring Feral Media’s visual aesthetic.

Since 2003 Feral Media’s base has been Sydney’s inner west (Camperdown) and the artist roster has evolved to include the new projects by established Feral Media artists (Greg Seiler’s collaborations with Amanda Handel and Sleuthound
