Like rays of sunshine filtering through gum tree branches, the new track ‘Out Of Love’ from Robotikus, collaborating with fellow Hobart residents Cal Young (KOWL) and vocalist Calypso, is a celestial shining beacon of light, leavened with shades of melancholia and tristesse. The inherent sense of yearning provides a delicious counterpoint to the euphoric choruses …

Ben Shields records under the name Dull Reality and, although it’s an easy observation to make, his music is anything but. Shields works almost purely in the realms of electronic sounds – shape shifting electronica that is complex and multi-layered and given impetus and wings by his extraordinary vocal range and vivid imagination. Opening track …

We are very pleased to provide an exclusive listen to the funky new dance single from Sydney’s Ona Mota. This is a song so packed full of an irresistible funky vibe that even a hardened miserablist like myself is won over. And that’s a major achievement. Infectious, louche and utterly cool: this is such a …

Paying homage to the Queen of Pop’s recent birthday, music and art collective Italians Do It Better have released a 20-track covers album of Madonna, respectfully reimagined and shining with as many synth, post-punk and disco elements as one would expect. The compilation is a passport to 20 covers, recorded from the bedrooms of 19 …

TUSH; who they? You enquire, entirely within your remit. Well, if the groove is in you, they’re someone whose acquaintance you should make forthwith.

Funking along at a frenetic pace with a bubbling bass and chunky guitars, ‘Catch Your Flow’ is a sparkling and bright piece of electronic disco from Brisbane duo Syrup. Mixing an indie sensibility with something that traipses along with an electronic hum and catchy refrain, this is energising stuff. And it’s not all superficial hedonistic …

Sydney duo, Barley Passable, have released a veritable slice of summer with their new slinky, sensuous single ‘Turnaround’. It is as if they have bottled the essence of Sydney’s northern beaches – the bleach white beaches, the cloudless blue skies and the driving searing heat, hooning around in panel vans and board shorts eating Chiko …

Blending Munir‘s (AKA Midnight Runners) signature Boogie sound with Italo-Disco influences, the record brings forth four stylishly crafted modern dancefloor cuts. ‘Circuit Line’ is built on a foundation of reverence to the arpeggiator, driven by neon synth tones racing each other to the finish line. This racing theme defines the record throughout, painting images of classic …

BRIGHTON’S cool groovers Fujiya & Miyagi used what we can now refer to as period of history known as Lockdown One wisely, and kept on creating. They dug back into the archives, blowing the dust from abandoned hard drives and found a fragment of an idea dating all the way back to 2000. Socially distanced …
