    • Wongo Unleashes New Hit ‘The Preacher’ the-preacher-wongo-oz-edm

      Wongo Helps Us See The Light With ‘The Preacher’ Featuring The Legendary Chuck Roberts. DJ, producer, former professional breakdancer and full-time funny man Wongo is ready to show us the light with his new single ‘The Preacher’. Featuring the legendary ‘voice of house music’ Chuck Roberts delivering a sermon-like vocal, ‘The Preacher’ encourages everyone to harness the power of love over adversity, delivered in a heater of a house track, with a sample from jazz artist Bob James. “Bob James is probably my favourite composer of all time by a long shot,” explains Wongo. “His ‘Shamboozie’ record had a huge effect on me from my b-boy days, so being able to sample one of his hits is a big deal for me! On top of that, having the lord Chuck Roberts on vocals… I’m done haha. Proper nostalgia vibes!” With a monthly radio show on Insomniac Radio in the US, numerous ARIA Club Chart #1s, sold-out tours, support from Mixmag, Billboard, Complex, Don Diablo, Claptone and Zeds Dead, amongst many more, Wongo is a force to be reckoned with. His most recent single ‘Apple’ hit #1 on the ARIA Club Chart, reached the top 20 of both the Shazam and Spotify Viral chart in Australia, and hit the most played spot on triple j, becoming the biggest club record in the country. Added to this, in 2020 Wongo launched his Need2Freak parties alongside Little Fritter, selling 3,000 tickets and calling on his mate FISHER to do a surprise B2B set. Need2Freek also hosted a stage at Grass Is Greener festival in Cairns in late 2021. In a scene dominated by DJs and producers, it is hard to believe that the most definitive moment in the birth of house music came not from beats, chords or vocals, but a sermon. The House Music Gospel or The Preacher’s Anthem are just a few of the descriptions anyone with even a passing interest in the genre will no doubt have heard in the impassioned intonation of “In The Beginning There was Jack, and Jack had a groove”, the opening line of Chuck Roberts’ soul stirring speech, a performance that was first heard in Rhythm Controll’s seminal 1987 track ‘My House’. Later resampled by Larry Heard, AKA Mr Fingers for ‘Can You Feel It’, often cited as the first deep house record ever released. As well as sampled on well over 120 various recordings. Roberts’ new sermon in ‘The Preacher’ once again delivers a soul-stirring message, letting people know that even in the face of adversity “what you need to know and understand and what you need to be able to stand on is this… there is a way out.” Wongo’s ‘The Preacher’ is primed for all b-boys and girls to get back on the dancefloor and know “the thing inside of us that can conquer any obstacle that’s placed in our way… this my friend is love.” Wongo’s latest hit, ‘The Preacher’ featuring Chuck Roberts is out now, get your first listen below!

    • FISHER Teams Up With Shermanology For Lethal New Single ‘It’s A Killa’ fisher-its-a-killa-shermanology-feature-oz-edm

      Teaming up with Dutch duo Shermanology, Grammy-nominated Australian DJ and producer FISHER is set to release his goliath track ‘It’s A Killa’. Firing up crowds across the world, the release which has been teased in FISHER’s DJ sets, is now ready for release on March 11th. Proving that 2022 is the year of the FISH, ‘It’s a Killa’ is the second track of the year for FISHER, after ‘Palm Beach Banga’, demonstrating a certain intensity of releases this year. Taking the world by storm with his contagious humour and captivating live show, FISHER is one of the scene’s most in-demand artists right now. His 2018 Grammy and ARIA-nominated single ‘Losing It’, definitively iconic, was one of the most impactful songs of the year, reaching #2 on triple j’s Hottest 100 and having now been streamed on Spotify over 350 million times. Brother/sister duo Andy and Dorothy Sherman, also known as Shermanology, are the soul-infused tech house team whose combination of unmistakable vocals and signature soul-tec production are giving dancefloors around the world a fresh new energy. Garnering “Hottest Record in the World” status from Annie Mac on BBC Radio with their 2021 release ‘Boyz N Da Club’, the pairing of Shermanology and FISHER for ‘It’s A Killa’ is a force to be reckoned with. The rest of FISHER’s 2022 boasts a full international travel itinerary and more new music, before he returns home to Australia in November for his massive FISHER Beach Party, hitting Perth, Brisbane, Wollongong and St Kilda. Out now and available to purchase on Beatport, you can also find ‘It’s A Killa’ on your favourite streaming platforms. Get your first listen below!  

    • Matroda Unleashes Two Certified House Gems On “Gotta Let You Go” matroda-2022-oz-edm-feature

      Matroda makes his way back over to Insomniac Records with another standout appearance arriving in the shape of his new two-track release, ‘Gotta Let You Go.’ The Croatian house producer has proven to be one of the most well-rounded figures currently holding court in the house music space, with an impressive repertoire of tracks that have seen maneuvering through influences like a madman. His versatility has been littered courteously across the Insomniac catalog via a string of releases stretching back all the way to his label debut in 2020. So, it’s only fitting his newest offering would see him splitting between both ends of the spectrum like the chameleonic champion that he is. On the title cut “Gotta Let You Go,” he opts for a warm piano-driven groove about cutting ties with a love that seems to have lost its luster. A diva-friendly vocal wails without a shred of remorse, belting out the cold hard truth over bright piano stabs that scamper above a bed of pumping percussion. Its deceptively upbeat nature serves as a pleasant reminder that there’s always sunshine to be had at the end of a storm. “Touchin’ Me” leans into tougher tech house territory, another area of expertise for the artist in question. Pulsating basslines and shuffling drums ride atop the crest of a crescendo, until the chunky synth lead alternates its pitch through sporadic quick bursts above vocal chops and a mighty hook calling out the track’s namesake. A swelling ricochet leads us into the breakdown, eventually flaring up to make full contact through its thumping tactile sequence. On both tracks, Matroda shows us yet again that he has his hands in all the right places. Matroda’s latest two-track offering is emblematic of the fluidity he’s perfected over the last few years. He’s made a habit out of pushing his own limits on the Insomniac imprint, returning regularly to make a run at almost any influence that happens to pique his interest. From the brooding, nostalgia laced “When We We Young,” the pumping piano jam “Lifting,” all the way through to his moody heartbreak anthem “Forget It” (which is closing in on 10 million streams), nothing is off the table for him. Out now via Beatport and all streaming platforms, get your first listen below!

    • FISHER Unleashes Latest Hit ‘Palm Beach Banga’ fisher-palm-beach-banga-oz-edm-2022-feature

      Grammy-nominated Australian DJ and producer FISHER celebrates his first release of 2022 with a deftly crafted volume-cranker, ‘Palm Beach Banga’. Appearing in FISHER’s DJ sets since 2019, the track has been continually worked on to the point of perfection and is finally ready for release on February 11th via etcetc in Australia and New Zealand. As various Australian state governments continue to restrict dancing, FISHER’s new song asks us the poignant question, ‘Can you dance to my beat?’ Featuring an absolute classic vocal akin to Green Velvet’s ‘La La Land’, US house music royalty Palmer Brown aka Kevin Hedge’s (Blaze, Stardust, De’Lacy) vocal tops the acidy tech house production from FISHER. Not short of social commentary, ‘Palm Beach Banga’ has been spotted in FISHER and fans’ social posts at shows in the US (Electric Zoo, Elrow, Marquee) and UK (Creamfields, The Drumsheds and Printworks) over the last 12 months.  An homage to the stomping ground of a grommet surfer FISHER, Palm Beach is a coastal suburb on Queensland’s Gold Coast, an area where Paul Fisher now lives with his wife Chloe Chapman and friends from high school who he’s still close to today. Known for his wild sense of humour and energetic performance persona, FISHER first burst onto the electronic scene with tracks ‘Stop It’ and ‘Ya Kidding’, since becoming one of the scene’s most in-demand artists. His 2018 Grammy and ARIA-nominated single ‘Losing It’, definitively iconic, was one of the most impactful songs of the year, reaching #2 on triple j’s Hottest 100 and having now been streamed on Spotify over 300 million times. The rest of FISHER’s 2022 boasts a full international travel itinerary and more new music, before he returns home to Australia for his massive FISHER Beach Party, hitting Perth, Brisbane, Wollongong and St Kilda. Arriving just in time for Australia to demand dancing and club life to return to all, ‘Palm Beach Banga’ has all of the elements fans look for when they launch themselves back onto the dancefloor.
