Luke Million – Fear The Night feat. Jesse Davidson

May 12, 2015 Posted by aden at 11:24 am

FearTheNight_Final 1500x1500

Is there something in the water in Adelaide?

Following the release of his ‘Light & Sound’ EP in late 2014, synth maestro Luke Million and fellow Adelaidean Jesse Davidson pair up to deliver the moody electronic single ‘Fear The Night’.

After a string of remixes for Tkay Maidza, Porsches and Voltaire Twins, ‘Fear The Night’ came out of mutual admiration for one another’s work, and formed a collaboration which they both feel sits at the perfect middle ground between their respective profiles.

Luke says, “Fear The Night’ came together so seamlessly. I invited Jesse around to my studio to hang and listen to some music…he was drawn to one demo in particular and within minutes lyrics and melodies started to flow. Working together was awesome, and the finished track was a soundscape that meets somewhere in the middle of both our worlds.”

Jesse has not been short of attention in his own right this past 12 months. Elevated by Triple J’s Unearthed High competition, a #97 result in Triple J’s Hottest 100 for his Japanese Wallpaper feature ‘Making Friends’, heavy rotation on his single ‘Laika’ and an amazing Like A Version performance in April 2015 of Childish Gambino’s ‘Sober’. ‘Fear The Night’ comes at a time where both Luke and Jesse head to the northern hemisphere with dates through UK and Europe. The pair will meet up with Tkay Maidza in Brighton, UK on May 16 for a show demonstrating the results of Adelaide’s water supply.

Fear The Night is out 22nd May 2015 on etcetc music

The new single comes moments after Luke’s video for ‘Transylvania Disco’ capturing the early 80’s vibe of the original, and pieced together some crafty security camera vision of Luke Million’s multi-layered performance.

KILTER x GRMM – Look At Me (ft. Yung Fusion) [FREE DOWNLOAD]

April 23, 2015 Posted by aden at 11:34 am

Kilter & GRMM - Look At Me ft Yung Fusion

Riding at the forefront of the new wave of electronic producers coming out of Australia is Kilter and GRMM. Meeting over a game of Battleships on the Falls and Southbound Festival circuit, they soon ditched the games and set out on writing the electronica they are renowned for.

 

The result is a percussive driven, stripped back hip-hop masterpiece titled Look At Me. Reigning in Cayman Island local Yung Fusion for the vocal duties, the track’s subtle yet super catchy hooks complement the flow and rhythm that Yung Fusion is fast becoming synonymous for. Finding space and breathing room, while still packing a punch Look At Me is the perfect combination of these two producers distinctive styles.

 

Kilter’s infectious and atmospheric sounds have been driving people to the dance floor, but it is his percussion and synth stacked live show that keeps them dancing and sets the electronic whiz kid apart. Be it engaging small sweaty clubs or sprawling festival fields, Kilter has become a seasoned performer in his short career. With his single They Say getting love across the board at triple j, Kilter’s sophomore EP Shades debuted at #1 on the iTunes Electronic Albums chart. With his original recordings and exclusive remixes, plus a constant string of live shows around Australia, Kilter is one name that’s reverberating across the country for good reason.

 

It’s no surprise GRMM has been turning all the right heads. At only 24, GRMM – the solo project of Sydney’s Benn Markos – has emerged as one of the Australian beatmakers leading dance music’s new guard. And in the six months since his Diplo seal of approval, GRMM’s over-delivered on his next-big-thing tag.  After What You Need broke him to the world, GRMM connected online with New York vocalist Father Dude to create the chill-trap powerhouse Electrify. Electrify landed on high rotation on Triple J, hit the #1 spot on the iTunes Electronic Chart and amassed over 600K streams on SoundCloud. However there is no hold up for GRMM with his debut EP set for release later this year and a lead single burning your ears over the coming months.

 

With these two electronica masterminds setting the pace in the Australian future beats realm, it’s no surprise that Look At Me is a mature depiction of their sounds. Their knack for finding and breaking vocalists is obvious when you hear Yung Fusion dropping the first verse. Watch this space, this isn’t the only studio time these two have planned for 2015.

GODWOLF UNLEASH ‘RESIST’

April 1, 2015 Posted by aden at 10:47 am

Resist_Square 1500x1500

 

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 – THE GIVER (REPRISE)

April 1, 2015 Posted by aden at 10:37 am

Duke_Giver_cmyk

 

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.
