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.

Luke Million – Light & Sound (Official Video)

October 2, 2014 Posted by admin at 5:05 pm

Luke Million has gained cult house party status with Arnold and his signature synth-laden, cosmic disco style – appearing in remixes for musical amigos Olympic Ayres, Moullinex and Midnight Pool Party, as well as upcomers for High Highs, Tkay Maidza and The Swiss.

Written with Sterling Silver, ‘Light & Sound’ is a feel-good, disco-fuelled jam exploring the emotive connection of light, sound and beyond, juiced up with live bass, soaring synths and a guitar lick Nile Rodgers would be happy to call his own.

In collaboration with Entropico (Touch Sensitive, Beni, Nicky Night Time) and illustrator Laura Ives, the video for ‘Light & Sound’ features a beautiful watercolour fox traversing a landscape, embarking on a wistful journey of colour, sound and transmutation.

Check out the video below and download the ‘Light & Sound EP’ here.

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.

Luke Million – Light & Sound

August 27, 2014 Posted by admin at 5:55 pm

Following a string of seminal releases with acclaimed imprints such as Future Classic, Kitsuné and Nervous, Luke Million proudly joins the etcetc family with his new EP, ‘Light & Sound’.

Luke Million has gained house-party, cult status with ‘Arnold’ (1.3 million spins and counting) as well as enjoying bountiful JJJ play for his last EP ‘Midnight Galaxy’; which was released through historic NYC house label Nervous Records. Luke Million’s signature synth-laden, cosmic disco style also appears in all its glory through remixes for musical amigos Olympic Ayres, Moullinex, Midnight Pool Party, and upcomers for High Highs, Tkay Maidza and his other band The Swiss.

Completing a series of hot mix tapes for Thump, Discobelle and Last Gas Station, Luke’s created a Soundcloud series of disco re-imaginations of past hits – The Doors, Giorgio Moroder, Kraftwerk and Pink Floyd – which have all been hyper-powered with racks and racks of bespoke analogue gear.
Written with Sterling Silver, lead single ‘Light & Sound’ enlists the beautiful mystery vocalist from previous track ‘Midnight’. The feel-good, disco-fuelled jam explores the emotive connection of light, sound and beyond juiced up with live bass, soaring synths and a guitar lick Nile Rodgers would be happy to call his own.

In collaboration with Entropico (Touch Sensitive, Beni, Nicky Night Time) and illustrator Laura Ives, the video for ‘Light & Sound’ features a beautiful watercolour fox traversing a landscape, embarking on a wistful journey of colour, sound and transmutation.

Whether you’re a disco dabbler or hard-out extremist ‘Light & Sound’ is poised to become a summer sizzler, with more class than a super yacht champagne brunch. With Luke Million’s ability for creating crossover cult classics ‘Light & Sound’ looks set to join the fold, just in the nick of time.
Ahead of the release of his ‘Light & Sound EP’, Luke Million will perform at Big Sound, Wednesday 10thSeptember 2014.

Arkon Fly – Back Seat

August 25, 2014 Posted by admin at 6:05 pm

After garnering support on their debut single ‘Through The Fire’ from Skream, Duke Dumont and Julio Bashmore, London duo Arkon Fly (Big Jam and Bixby) continue their route into funk-fuelled house with ‘Back Seat’.

Gaining immediate attention through Earmilk and Annie Mac tweets, ‘Back Seat’ has already picked up continued support from Radio 1 specialist Rob Da Bank, Toddla T and MistaJam. ‘Backseat’ showcases with enhanced gusto the manifold talent and impressive vocal chops of this prodigious duo, with a tour de force of celebratory disco-funk, hook-laden falsetto and sneaking synth bass, coming on like Prince’s ’1999′ updated to present day London.

The throwback sound warming out the northern hemisphere signifies the start of an electronic soul /funk scene coming out of London’s progressive underground. With an LP in the works, Arkon Fly is leading the sound of funk and soul back into the clubs. In the interim keep an ear out for their vocal feature on a forthcoming Julio Bashmore track.

Claude VonStroke – CaliFuture

August 25, 2014 Posted by admin at 5:59 pm

You might remember the legendary dirtybird video for Claude VonStroke’s ‘Deep Throat’, which launched the infamous, iconic and pretty scary big blue dirtybird. Or perhaps Justin Martin & Ardalan’s 16-bit ‘Lezgo’ inspired by classic 80s and 90s videogames. But “CaliFuture’ might well top them all – from a cameo from the aforementioned blue bird, to VonStroke donning his Wall Street garbs and swilling a raw-egg, to the mysterious van dwelling snow cone seller who may or may not be Barry Drift, this is an instant dirtybird classic.

Peep the magic below.

The track ‘Califuture’ is about that little optimistic bug in everyone who moves to California that makes them think that someday they will be plucked up out of obscurity to become famous. Everyone has it in the back of their mind. But the music video goes one step further into madness. It’s the heart-wrenching story of a snow cone salesman trying to get a job at dirtybird and then realizing the life of a snow cone maker is really his passion.
