As we approach the one-handed countdown to our Vivid show, it gives us great pleasure to welcome Klue to our line-up, joining etcetc’s own Kilter, Paces, Set Mo and Godwolf. Klue, one third of the dynamic horn-fuelled hip hop trio True Vibenation, has been receiving much praise of late for his soul inspired single ‘Way I’m Loving You’, which you may have a caught yourself grooving to on FBi or Triple J these past couple of months. Klue joins the June 7th line-up replacing Acaddamy who has regretfully had to pull out due to an interstate gig.
After ‘Way I Love You’ premiered with Acclaim Magazine, Klue was crowned FBi’s Independent Artist of the Week, and rode up the Triple J Unearthed Chart. With a full add to FBi Radio rotation and Triple J support from Richard Kingsmill, Dom Alessio, Linda Marigliano and The Aston Shuffle, Klue is fast becoming a name to watch. FasterLouder spread the word in their ‘8 Aussie Songs You Need To Hear’, placing Klue’s garagey soul jam alongside new tracks from Alpine, Japanese Wallpaper and BAD//DREEMS.
His addition to the etcetc Vivid Music line-up will mark his return from a mammoth tour of Africa with True Vibenation, where the band played festivals in Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Swaziland and South Africa.
Featuring a lush tropical paradise created by Entropico, and very special guest performances from Porsches (debut live performance), KLP, Nicole Millar, Deutsch Duke, Madeline Vida and Timothy Lockwood made possible by Jack Daniel’s & JD Future Legends, the etcetc Vivid showcase has become one of the must-see shows of the festival this year – see you there!

After an impressive introduction via his soaring melter ‘They Say’, Kilter dives head first into his new single ‘Want 2’ featuring Sydney duo Porsches (Carl Fox & Jesse Sewell). The resulting track showcases Porsches’ floaty vocals, anchored by Kilter’s laidback beats and stabby synths, evoking images of beachside road trips and half-remembered summer crushes.
After a heavy touring workload in 2014, including a 26-date national tour, Splendour in the Grass, Falls Festival, Listen Out and a nationally broadcast performance at the Australian Open of Surfing for Channel [V], Kilter was well overdue for some studio time. Since discovering a mutual admiration for each other’s work, Kilter and Porsches decided to collaborate, and after two solid months of hard work ‘Want 2’ is a beautiful testament to the production and song writing ability of this electronic dream team.
This year has already seen Kilter drop remixes for ODESZA and Hermitude, as well as his collaboration with GRMM ‘Look At Me’ – a blissed out beats bomb with some weighty vocals from The Cayman Island’s Yung Fusion – cracking 200,000 spins on Soundcloud in two weeks! Next up Kilter will be headlining etcetc’s Vivid Music showcase at The Basement in Sydney on June 7th, and will be joined on stage by Porsches for the first ever live performance of ‘Want 2’. The line-up also includes Paces, Set Mo and special guests Nicole Millar, KLP, Deutsch Duke.

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.

Australian imprint etcetc Music presents a night of electronic muscle for Vivid Sydney 2015 (22 May – 8 June), an 18-day festival of light, music and ideas – the largest of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere. Taking over the iconic venue ‘The Basement’ in Circular Quay, etcetc presents the percussive wizkid Kilter, sub-tropical lord Paces, rising house duo Set Mo, the e-gaze of Godwolf, garage-tinged producer Acaddamy and the mysterious Sir Jonathan. Joining the line up will be special guest performers KLP, Porsches, Deutsch Duke, Nicole Millar, Madeline Vida and Tim Lockwood.
Our exciting just-announced additions to the lineup are Set Mo and Godwolf. Sydney duo Set Mo have had a stellar 2015, championed by Triple J as the new names in house, their new single ‘White Dress’ with Deutsch Duke has been enthusiastically received across the country. The guys recently played during WMC in Miami and are about to embark on a national tour, culminating in their inaugural Splendour in the Grass appearance!
Godwolf’s silky smooth tunes have already seen them become a hit with tastemakers and industry insiders. Their most recent single, ‘Resist’ garnered praise from Triple J Unearthed, Hilly Dilly, Indie Shuffle and I Heart Moosiq, and anyone who has had the chance to catch their live show will tell you that these guys have their stage game tight.
Proving himself as one of the most live and exciting electronic artists right now, Kilter will debut his midi-triggered light show for his etcetc x Vivid performance. An artist who is continually upping his game in the live space, his light show perfectly complements the state-of-the-art light installations already on show for Vivid Sydney. Having just dropped his collab with GRMM, ‘Look At Me’ as a free download, and with an exciting new track with Porsches on the horizon, Kilter is a name you’re going to hear a lot of in 2015.
Armed with his sub-tropical party beats, it’s easy to see why Paces is nailing it right now. Whether it’s his signature beats for Tkay Maidza on ‘Switch Lanes’, remixes for Tinashe, SAFIA, Alison Wonderland and Years & Years, his multi-swagged live show, or his standout single ‘Nothing’s Forever’ feat. Kučka, the guy has got it going on! Joining us at Vivid Sydney off the back of a national tour Paces is definitely one of the buzz artists to catch this year.
Head of etcetc Music, Aden Mullens, says of the showcase “Vivid Sydney is a great opportunity to showcase the unique and creative performances of our exciting roster. The Basement is an iconic and intimate performance space, now with an epic new soundsystem and recent refurb it’ll make for one hell of a show.”
With a brand new sound system and its location in the heart of Vivid Sydney, The Basement could not be a more perfect location for our debut Vivid Sydney showcase with these incredibly talented artists. Tickets are available now via Moshtix, there will be limited door sales but this will be a capacity event.

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.
