    • Golden Features Returns With News Single ‘Touch’ golden-features-touch-2022-oz-edm

      The wait is over! Acclaimed Australian electronic producer Golden Features today makes his highly anticipated return with his rousing new single “Touch” featuring Rromarin. Golden Features has turned out to be an apt name for the artist born Tom Stell, a nod to the gold mask he wears while performing. “Touch” marks the first taste of new music from Stell’s Golden Features, after a literal golden run since bursting onto the scene in 2014. Since his 2018 debut album SECT and the launch of 2020’s collaborative project BRONSON (with ODESZA), Stell felt creatively spent and needed time to recoup. Instead of opting for the traditional R&R approach, Stell emersed himself deep into clubbing mecca of the world, Berlin. There, he lost himself in the city’s renowned techno bunkers and hedonistic clubs, dancing with strangers, stripped of phones and returning to the apartment in the early hours to hunt for the tracks he’d heard the night before. Four nights a week spent raving only came to an end when COVID closed the clubs down. But Stell returned to Australia revitalised and most importantly, inspired. “Touch” encapsulates everything Stell took away from his invigorating stint in Berlin. A track that’s both moody and light, layered with pulsating rhythm, hypnotic beats and the duelling deep and wispy vocals of Rromarin. “Touch was born from that synth riff. I fought it for so long, feeling it was too happy and upbeat. After giving it some space I reharmonized everything under the riff and it instantly made me feel something. Claire (Rromarin) had actually recorded these vocals for another song on the record, but the lyrics just felt right for Touch” says Stell on the new single. “To me it encapsulates that feeling after the rave… At the kick-on laying with your head in somebody’s lap, smoking a cigarette while they play with your hair.” Now with two platinum and six gold ARIA certifications for his tracks, 275+ million global streams, an acclaimed and beloved debut album in 2018’s SECT (#1 ARIA Dance Albums Chart, #1 iTunes, Triple J’s Feature Album), selling out two shows in 4 hours at the Sydney opera House, headline slots at major festivals both at home and abroad as well as forming the BRONSON project and releasing their self-titled album with stadium-conquering US electronic duo ODESZA under his belt, Golden Features has cemented himself as Australian electronic music royalty, returning now as an artist at the top of their game. Stay tuned for more to come from Golden Features, in the meantime listen to the new single “Touch” below!

He was a finalist in the Unearthed DIY Supergroup competition and also made his triple j Like A Version debut, delivering a stellar rework of Toto’s ‘Africa’, alongside a mashup of ‘CEO’ and ‘Jungle Juice’ with the help of KLP. Dave was also handpicked to remix Darude’s ubiquitous classic ‘Sandstorm’ for a major Christmas TV campaign. Over his career Dave has collaborated with the legendary Armin Van Buuren on ´The Race´, and produced official remixes for Twenty One Pilots, David Guetta, Bastille, Anne-Marie, Clean Bandit, Hardwell, Axwell /\ Ingrosso, Adam Lambert, and Galantis, proving himself to be one of Australia’s most prolific electronic acts, racking up over 65 million streams on Spotify alone. This Vegemite-loving producer is known for his infectious and fun personality and this shines through his music, blending future/tech house with organic quirky instruments. Be sure to catch Dave at one of his upcoming shows and step out of the metaverse and into ‘Real Life’.

    • 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!

    • Teddy Cream Team Up With Atlanta’s Benji Reyes & Truent For ‘Dancer’ teddy-cream-dancer-oz-edm-2021

      Australian duo Teddy Cream are back in full force with a hip hop flavoured dance track that screams party. ‘Dancer’ is a collab with Atlanta’s Benji Reyes; the renowned producer who has made a name for himself flipping tunes and going viral with millions of hits across YouTube and TikTok. Lending his vocals to ‘Dancer’ is artist, rapper, and singer-songwriter Truent, whose style is inspired by chart-topping rappers such as Drake, Lil Wayne, Eminem and many more. “Dancer is one of our favourite records and collaborations with artists living over 15,000 kms away,” explain Teddy Cream. “We all have a little dancer in us and we hope this song we loved making can help people get up and get dancing, especially as it comes into spring/summer in Australia.” “I always wanted to make a dance song with some hip hop elements sprinkled in,” says Benji Reyes. “My favourite part is definitely the drop. When the hook comes in and you hear the catchy line, added with the groovy bass line, it’s hard not to want to bob your head or get up and dance.” Vocalist Truent adds, “Me and Benji have worked on previous records together and I loved how those came out, so I knew it would be easy to make another hit. Teddy Cream added their sauce and gave us that extra push to turn our demo into a hit record!” Teddy Cream is Brandon Mangion and Vincent Calderone, two lifelong friends who began producing together at 13, touring at 18, and dominating dance music not long after. In 2017, their reworks of Sonia Dada’s ‘Lover’ and Daryl Braithwaite’s hit ‘Horses’ climbed the ARIA Club Charts and Spotify Viral Chart and amassed over 4.5 million combined streams. Their 2019 release ‘Summer Jam’ has over 5 million streams and charted across Europe, with follow up singles ‘Home’ and ‘Better Now’ proving them a force to be reckoned with in the dance music landscape. Known for their high energy DJ sets, their live videos have already amassed over 6 million likes on TikTok and tens of millions more views on Facebook. Benji Reyes is a music producer/DJ from Atlanta, Georgia. He started his music career a few years ago by doing unofficial remixes of popular songs namely Drake’s ‘Hotline Bling’ and Post Malone’s ‘Congratulations’ which went viral on Vine and TikTok alike amassing millions of streams. Following on from his successful remixes he began releasing original music independently in 2018 and his first song, ‘Double Tap’ gained millions of views on YouTube. Truent is a recording artist, rapper, and singer-songwriter from Cartersville, Georgia. He started writing raps at the age of 15 and recording original songs at 18. Truent is known for his versatility, melodic style, catchy hooks, and intricate flows which culminate to the qualities of a true hit maker. A dance pop tune sprinkled with dark hip-hop elements like ‘Dancer’ is bound to make crowds go wild, and with Teddy Cream returning to the touring circuit in early 2022, dancefloors won’t know what hit them.

    • Illenium & Thirty Seconds To Mars Drop “Wouldn’t Change A Thing” Collaboration illenium-wouldnt-change-a-thing-thirty-seconds-to-mars-fearture-oz-edm

      Multiplatinum cross-genre phenomenon, artist, producer, and DJ ILLENIUM unveils his latest single entitled “Wouldn’t Change A Thing” featuring Thirty Seconds To Mars. The song notably marks the first new music from legendary, record breaking band Thirty Seconds To Mars in three years. “Wouldn’t Change A Thing” sets the stage for the Deluxe Edition of ILLENIUM’s fourth full-length album, FALLEN EMBERS, on October 22, 2021. It will be the inaugural release under his newly minted deal with Warner Records. The single fuses ILLENIUM’s immersive and cinematic production with a heavenly and hypnotic vocal melody from Thirty Seconds To Mars frontman Jared Leto. Backed by Shannon Leto’s powerful drums, icy synths pulsate in the background before a shuddering dancefloor-ready groove takes hold. Meanwhile, Jared Leto projects the hook loud and clear, “No matter what happens, she’s a fatal attraction to me. I wouldn’t change a thing.” In the accompanying Visualizer, images of flames, rain, and sparks underline the track’s emotional intensity, bringing the words to life. For the Deluxe Edition, ILLENIUM notably reupped, reloaded, and recharged this opus with five new songs. Among the new material, Virtual Riot expands “Blame Myself” featuring Tori Kelly with a new Remix, heightening the tension and release with an unpredictable glitchy breakdown. From the frenetic bounce of “Hurt Like This” to the guitar-laden crunch of “Superhero,” ILLENIUM presents the most complete and comprehensive vision of Fallen Embers now. Tallying over 400 million streams, the original FALLEN EMBERS boasted a series of anthems, including “Nightlight” (150M global streams), “Hearts on Fire” with Dabin feat. Lights (60M global streams), “First Time” feat. iann dior (50M global streams), “Sideways” with Valerie Broussard and Nurko (25M global streams), and “Heavenly Side” with Matt Maeson (5M global streams). Impressively, his career total streams have now eclipsed 5 billion and counting. Earlier this year, ILLENIUM performed a four-set show at The Las Vegas Raiders’ Allegiant Stadium, making him the first artist to ever perform at the venue. The first three sets at the show commemorated his previous 3 albums – Ashes, Awake, and Ascend. The night ended with a final set, bringing closure to the story of the previously mentioned albums and starting a new one with Fallen Embers. Throughout the summer, he also shined at festivals such as Lollapalooza, Breakaway Music Festival, Life Is Beautiful, and more. Now, he illuminates electronic music brighter than ever with Fallen Embers Deluxe Edition and much more to come.
