Paces & Set Mo Part of EMC Play’s 10 Next Big Things

November 20, 2014 Posted by admin at 12:30 pm

 

At last year’s EMC Inthemix introduced the very first Spotlight showcase, issuing an open invitation to dance music producers around the country to submit their best work, in the hope of being picked to play a showcase in front of an audience of A&Rs, talent bookers and media. One thing quickly became clear: there’s a lot of talent out there. From over 250 applications, inthemix whittled down six acts to perform at EMC 2014; since then, all the 2013 alumni have gone onto bigger and better things and some – like KLP and SAFIA – have gone huge.

This year, Inthemix brought in EMC Play’s Head of Programming Dan Zilber (former Music Director at FBi Radio) to scour the country and find ten rising Showcase stars – the acts they’re tipping for huge things in 2015. Some will be names you’ll recognise from club bills around the country, others you might be hearing for the first time; but on 3 and 4 December you’ll get to see them perform in person, as part of the stacked line-up of EMC Play, which sees 20 of the country’s biggest labels, agencies and media brands get together to throw two nights of parties in Kings Cross.

etcetc’s very own Paces and Set Mo are amongst the list of Aussie artists that have had a strong year, and are expected to blow up in 2015. With the recent release of his ‘On My Mind’ EP, it is no surprise that Paces was given the call up to be showcased at this years EMC Play. Off the back of a successful EP featuring the ‘Tiptoe’ single, and touring Europe for the Amsterdamn Dance Event (ADE), Set Mo are also bringing their house heavy dj sets to the EMC showcase. Watch out as these two hot acts tear up Kings Cross at the EMC Play event.

One lucky artist performing at EMC Play will even walk away as the JD Future Legend. The EMC programming committee will be keeping a close eye on every artist playing, and giving a $5K award – based on creative merit and artistic merit – to one producer to put towards international travel to an overseas music industry event. Always wanted to visit ADE or SXSW? Now’s your chance. Get acquainted with the future stars of Australian dance music.

Paces

Mikey Perry has been dropping bass bombs as half of Surecut Kids since 2010, but it’s his tropical side project that has really connected with people over the last twelve months. As Paces, the Gold Coast producer finds his signature in throwing sunny synths over bouncy percussion; experimenting with Jersey club and footwork rhythms but never letting things get too serious. Having remixed Safia and collaborated with Tkay Maidza, Paces is keeping good company within Australian electronic music – and is sure to keep rising.

 

 

Set Mo

House music in its more subtle, deeper form isn’t as visible in Australia as it is in the UK, but Sydneysiders Set Mo might be the ones to change that. After spending a long time tuning their craft at home and releasing a full-formed EP, the duo jetted off around the world to find inspiration and play in the clubs that their music was born in. The resulting tunes should see Set Mo step above the bar they’ve set for themselves and bring more house gold to Australian ears.

Attaque – ON LY OU

November 4, 2014 Posted by admin at 12:44 pm

What do you do when it looks like you’re finally realising your life’s dream of making it in techno; when you’re at long last turning up on the playlists of the scene’s biggest DJs and being whisked to all corners of the globe to play to packed-out, rapturous dancefloors?
For Colchester based electronic producer and multi-instrumentalist Dominic Gentry aka Attaque it was the moment to hang up the headphones and make a beautiful electronica record with breathtaking songs, ethereal textures, intelligent melodies and not a single club track in sight. That record is ON LY OU – out now on etcetc.


ON LY OU is a remarkable debut that marries Attaque’s mastery of forward-thinking electronica, shoegaze and heartfelt pop. The record seamlessly glides from the euphoric to the more intimate and emotive.

A born musician and electronic music devotee since his early teens, it was in late 2011 when Gentry conceived the Attaque moniker. Radio 1 and Mixmag heaped praise on his early techno releases as he appeared on some of Europe’s coolest electronic labels: Kitsune, Turbo, Boys Noize and Bad Life, a revered Boiler Room DJ set followed soon after. It was a couple of months later after Attaque had just played his first show in Japan when he came home to the UK and realised he no longer felt inspired to make 4/4 music for 5 am dark, sweaty raves. He called time on touring and locked himself away for a full year to craft his debut artist offering.

For ON LY OU, Gentry has amassed contributions from some outstanding young vocalists, with the album featuring Adam Pleas (Qtier – London), Yannick Meyer (Native Young, Cape Town) and Daniel Hunter (Analog Rebellion – Aledo, Texas).
Attaque’s live show has made the transition from studio to the live sphere, having played London’s Koko earlier this month, he will announce more shows shortly.

Tracklisting:
1. Distant
2. Change Your Mind
3. Only You
4. Future Earth
5. Isolation
6. Let It Down
7. You Can’t Surrender If You’re Already Dead
8. I Give It Away
9. War Path
10. No Going Back

ON LY OU is an album full of ambition and promise through which Attaque succeeds in justifying his status amongst the brightest names in the electronic scene.

Kilter feat. Tkay Maidza – They Say

October 2, 2014 Posted by admin at 5:28 pm

When Sydney electronic producer Kilter played to a packed crowd at Splendour In The Grass in July, fans were treated to a very special surprise performance by Tkay Maidza, who joined Kilter on stage to premiere a reworked version of ‘They Say’. Since then, Kilter and Tkay have laid down the track in the studio to give ‘They Say’ a whole new dimension.

Kilter is currently on the road touring all around Australia for Listen Out, following his debut EP release, ‘Shades’, which shot straight to #13 on the iTunes album chart and #2 on the Electronic chart.

The original of ‘They Say’ has been on high rotation on Triple J and follows Kilter’s remix of Ben Pearce’s ‘What I Might Do’, which alongside remixes for Duke Dumont and London Grammar, puts Kilter well and truly on the radar internationally.

Since her Unearthing through Triple J, Adelaide rapper Tkay Maidza has had a snowballing run on air with ‘Brontosaurus’, ‘Handle My Ego’ and ‘Arm Up’. Recently signing to Dew Process, Tkay most recent single ‘U-Huh’ has media starting conversations about being Australia’s Next Big Thing. In testament to the rhetoric, Tkay’s performance on ‘They Say’ completely elevates the already euphoric energy of the original.

As we approach the recovery phase after Listen Out Sydney last weekend, we thought it was time to brave the upward scroll to reveal what evidence of the festival was sitting in our camera roll. As per, the photos were average. Mainly chicks and Kilter. Couple of grass shots and some accidental screen shots for good measure.

Here is our recap:
