The Avalanches are an Australian electronic music group formed in 1997 with mainstays Robbie Chater on keyboards, Tony Diblasi on keyboards, bass and backing vocals, and Darren Seltmann on vocals and keyboards. They are known for their live and recorded DJ sets and their debut album Since I Left You (2000), which they claim was assembled from approximately 3500 vinyl samples. The album peaked in the top 10 on the UK Albums Chart in April 2001. At the ARIA Music Awards of 2001, the group received nine nominations and won four categories: 'Best New Artist - Album' and 'Best Dance Release' for Since I Left You, 'Best New Artist - Single' for "Frontier Psychiatrist", and 'Producer of the Year' for Bobbydazzler (production name for Chater and Seltmann). In October 2010, the album was listed at No. 10 in the book, 100 Best Australian Albums. The Album has also been named # 1 Australian Album of all time in a Triple J industry poll, as well as # 10 album of the decade by Pitchfork Media. It is estimated in the decade since its release the album has gone on to sell well over 1,000,000 copies.
