Melbourne duo Godwolf new single ‘Resist’ is an impressive step into 2015 ahead of a busy year of releases including three exciting feature for glitch funk artist Bobby Tank, Hebinomichi co-founder StéLouse, and Perth-based producer Palace.
Through the tail end of 2014, the band performed with Bondax for their Australian tour, sweated it out with Kilter, Sable and The Kite String Tangle at the internationally renowned Electronic Music Conference, before putting their heads down to create ‘Resist’, a track which was written in the shell of Joe’s childhood home in the remote country town of Nagambie, Victoria. Tom & Joe transported all their necessary writing and production equipment into the empty house, with a grand piano still living at its centre. With that, they had the perfect studio completely detached from environment with where smooth vocals embellish intricately warm melodies.
Joe says of their writing trip “Everything just clicked, and even though our influences over the last 12 months have been quite different, we fell into the same groove creatively in no time. We didn’t do a lot of sleeping – this ‘retreat’ wasn’t a holiday by any means, but it was super rewarding.”
‘Resist’ features a series of vibrant, pastel synth lines that curve themselves around dominant vocal work – creating uplifting energy – and encompassing a smooth ambiance with a gentle beat pounding at its base. Each element holds together as the track flows swiftly and elegantly, but tropical marimbas make their presence known throughout; a welcome surprise to the already blissful composition.
Dave Ruby Howe of Triple J explained that “GodWolf have always had that silky sheen to them and this tune has the kind of soulful resonance that people are loving right now” something which has been echoed by the likes of fellow emotive lyricists SAFIA who tweeted “your track helps me get out of bed in the morning”. Bolstering previous tastemaker support from Dom Alessio, Lewi McKirdy and The Aston Shuffle, ‘Resist’ marks the beginning of an exciting new year, leading into the band’s debut EP.
Joe reflects on the writing process of ‘Resist’, “It’s a shame to see that house go actually. It’s not often you get to sit in a naked shell of the home you grew up in and just write for days on end. It’s surprisingly therapeutic.”

Duke Dumont returns with new single ‘The Giver’ (Reprise)’. The super producer, chart topper and two time Grammy nominee will release the new single May 22nd via etcetc Music and Duke’s Blasé Boys Club imprint here in Australia and New Zealand.
Originally appearing on underground dance label Turbo in 2012 and becoming a word of mouth club hit, the ecstatic breakout house anthem ‘The Giver’ has been updated to a sleek and soulful pop gem while losing nothing of the heady rush of its club roots. The new version will appear on Duke’s debut album slated for later this year. Embodying Duke’s magic touch at its most irresistibly euphoric, ‘The Giver (Reprise)’ is the gift that keeps on giving.
2015 has seen Duke bestowed with recognition for his crossover success with a second Grammy nomination for Best Dance Recording and a double BRITs nomination for British Single Of The Year and Best British Video for ‘I GOT U’. The latter was Duke’s second consecutive #1 single, with follow up ‘Won’t Look Back’ reaching #2. Both tracks were accompanied with unforgettable videos, with ‘I GOT U’ nominated for Best Dance Video at the 2014 UK Music Video Awards and surpassing a 100 million YouTube views.
The summer will see Duke unveil a new live show with forthcoming festival slots at Coachella, Wireless, T In The Park, V Fest and Bestival, with more dates to come.

Mikey Perry is never going to be at risk of being called a lazy guy. If not writing tropical party anthems as Paces, he’s producing tracks for friends (Tkay Maidza, Madeline Vida, Vanessa Elisha), remixing SAFIA, Kilter, Parachute Youth, YesYou, Sampology, Danny T, Rattraps, Sietta; supporting beat-maker extraordinaires Lunice, Ryan Hemsworth, Kaytranada, Djemba Djemba and Mr Carmack; or creating some pretty powerful meme’s with the help of his French bulldog Chilli.
Mixing influences from Jersey Club, Future Beats, and Garage, Paces has crafted a style which is undeniably his own but could sit at home amongst any of his musical idols (Cashmere Cat, Ta-Ku) gaining awareness through his Hottest 100 single with Tkay Maidza, ‘Switch Lanes’. With the added valour of Perth-based singer Kuĉka, brand new single ‘Nothing’s Forever’ is an electronic power ballad catapulted onto the dancefloor by Paces’ truly unique production. If you’re not yet across the work of Kuĉka, you’re in for a treat. Praised in Rolling Stone and flagged as an Artist to Watch in 2015 by triple j Unearthed Music Director Dave Ruby Howe, Kuĉka (pronounced Coo-ch-ka) brings perfect compliments to ‘Nothing’s Forever’. Amongst the amazing local talent of New Zealand, ‘Nothing’s Forever’ became Single of the Week ahead of radio service on the countries most influential electronic station, George FM.
Paces national tour will run from 20th Match into 18th April 2015.

To say that 2014 has been a huge year for the Adelaide 3-Piece is an understatement.
When Flamingo weren’t busy inking deals with Select Music & etcetc, appearing on sold out tours with The Kite String Tangle or making festival appearances at Splendour in The Grass and Groovin’ The Moo, they were supporting the likes of Bonobo, Classix, RUFUS and Kilter and somehow still managing to produce a masterful debut EP and some stellar singles along the way.
With all this in mind, 2015 is set to be an exciting year for Flamingo, as they embark on their first headlining tour around the country, dazzling audiences with their super tight, hypnotic live show.
If their debut clip for ‘Drip Away’ is anything to go by, Flamingo will be sound tracking the vibe to a long, balmy summer.
Supporting them on all shows is the incredible JOY., who burst onto the scene with her debut single ‘Captured’ and more recently stunned audiences with her single ‘Stone’ as well as a guest appearance on triple j’s Like A Version with Peking Duk, JOY. means business. The multi-instrumentalist one woman band is bound to give you goosebumps.
