    • Hydraulix Releases Debut LP ‘Imposter Syndrome’ hydraulix-oz-edm-2021-feature

      Forward-thinking Australian DJ and producer Hydraulix is pleased to present his innovative debut album Imposter Syndrome, a versatile mélange of freeform bass hybrids, drum and bass, dubstep, rap, hip-hop, pop, and trap. The 20-track LP arrives after a string of highly-regarded lead singles: “Waratah” with Nitti Gritti, “Another Minute” ft. Muchi, “Concrete” ft. Jasiah, “Wish I’d Never Met You” with Veronica Bravo, and “Wrench” with Doctor P. A product of lockdown-induced insecurity and feelings of self-doubt, Imposter Syndrome sees Hydraulix tackle his inner demons by creating his most sonically captivating body of work yet. Imposter Syndrome is available to stream now via WAKAAN. Hydraulix is no stranger to WAKAAN, Liquid Stranger’s esteemed label. Following the release of his 2019 Space Cadet EP – his official label debut –  he became a fixture on the beloved imprint, churning out groundbreaking singles such as “Let Em Drip,” and landing top billing spots on numerous WAKAAN festival stage takeovers. In early 2020, he was riding the momentum of his debut U.S. tour before being stopped in his tracks by the onset of the global pandemic. Forced to return home to his native city of Melbourne and into a strict lockdown, the distraction and adrenaline that came from his fast-paced lifestyle quickly slipped into a slow-burning comedown. “One thing that I’ve always struggled with is the feeling of not knowing what I was doing most of the time or not deserving my success and accomplishments,” Hydraulix explains. With newfound time to reflect on his career, he was met with an emotional epiphany that doubled as the main inspiration behind his debut album. “When COVID hit last year, everything changed for me; my US tour got cut short and I go back home [to Australia] and straight into lockdown. After facing the reality of things, I realised I had been dealing with a case of ‘imposter syndrome’ for quite some time,” Hydraulix notes. “It was a tricky time and I wanted to push myself to create something that truly tested me and my production skills. The concept of ‘Imposter Syndrome’ really hit home for me, and I knew it would be a fitting title for the album.” Imposter Syndrome packs in everything that Hydraulix is known for – hard-hitting bass, uncompromising drops, euphoric highs, and pulsating dubs – together with new sounds and collaborations that see him step out of his comfort zone. The familiarity of high-octane dubstep and bass cuts “Waratah,” a high-profile collaboration with Nitti Gritti, “System Malfunction,” “Take Control,” and “Break Em Down” is complemented by his raw, stripped-back take on bedroom hip-hop, radio-primed EDM, bass-metal, alternative rap, and drum and bass. Perhaps most impressive of all, however, is how Hydraulix recruited 16 co-collaborators and featured artists, each one a leader in their respective sonic spaces, to help refine and elevate his creative vision. Ohio-based genre-bending up-and-comer Jasiah lends his unfiltered grungy vocals on the bass-metal “Concrete”; longtime collaborator and friend DJ Afterthought injects his hip/hop bass twinge into “Dream”; singer-songwriter and fellow Aussie Veronica Bravo helps him transform “Wish I’d Never Met You” into a slice of dreamy pop/dance perfection; alternative trap breakout star Trippythakid merges his liquid flow with the slick bass production in “Mind Over Matter.” Aiming to push his boundaries as far as possible, he even called upon legendary Australian musician and didgeridoo player Charlie McMahon to add a unique instrumental touch to “Ridgy.” A truly diverse listening experience that holds power as the constant, Imposter Syndrome eases into its conclusion with the hazy, hip-hop-drenched “Another Minute” ft. Muchi, which begs listeners to stay and spin the record once more. It’s hard to believe that Imposter Syndrome is Hydraulix’s debut album given its impeccable structure. His most well-rounded and complete work to date, Imposter Syndrome positions Hydraulix as a leader that is no longer confined to the bass music space, but one that is ready to take over all facets of musical subgenres with an optimistic demeanor and an added dose of self-assurance. TRACKLIST: 1. Syndrome 2. Concrete ft. Jasiah 3. Smokin’ 4. Power Up ft. Wavehi & Edris Ali 5. Ridgy ft. Charlie McMahon 6. Waratah w/ Nitti Gritti 7. 4REAL ft. IndySauce 8. Dream w/ Afterthought ft.

Genesis Owusu)’ left off, introducing the single with subtle didgeridoo vibrations before the foot is pressed down on the sonic gas pedal. The Indigenous producer’s aptitude for utilising dynamic drums and powerful bass to evoke atmospheric and emotive narratives is on full display. He teams with Brisbane-based up-and-coming singer/songwriter BRIA who’s pertinent vocals centred around the uncertainty and instability of online dating, provide the perfect hook. Moss discusses the single and the direction of his sound saying, “I’ve teamed up on this record with powerhouse singer/ songwriter BRIA and we’ve built something very special. SPEED DIAL is the sonic infusion of the ups and downs of online dating – especially when they don’t text back. This single represents a development of my sound and I can’t wait for you to hear it. All gas, no brakes.” On the narrative behind the record, BRIA said, “The idea for SPEED DIAL came out of the 2020 Brisbane COVID lockdown. After everyone was exclusively online dating, I found hookup culture was more present than ever. Moss’ dramatic production was the perfect accompaniment for my narrator’s situationship.” Brisbane talent BRIA, who amassed a sizable online following across TikTok and Instagram, recently released her debut single ‘Taking It Off’. The track has seen airplay on triple j and acclaim from Declan Byrne, Tommy Faith, Abby Butler, and Dave Ruby Howe on triple j Unearthed. Embracing femininity and sensuality within her craft, she takes influences from the likes of Charli XCX, Lorde, and Caroline Polachek. Sydney-based producer, Moss rose to prominence earlier this year after taking out the triple j Unearthed DIY Supergroup competition, with his release ‘SABRE TEETH’, before announcing his signing to October Records. Sampling the likes of Alison Wonderland, Touch Sensitive, San Cisco, Vallis Alps, and Genesis Owusu, the latter of which jumped on as a feature artist, Moss crafted a very Australian moment, yet it was his iconic didgeridoo bass drop that impressed triple j presenters and listeners alike. The track went on to become one of the most played on the station, with Moss appearing on triple j’s Friday Mix, and Mix Up as part of NAIDOC week, while the single’s momentum carried it to the top of the Australian Shazam Chart. While ‘SABRE TEETH’ showcased Moss’ talent to a wider audience, the bass producer has been honing his craft with singles such as ‘From The Start’ and ‘Shimmer’ both of which premiered on triple j and rose the triple j Unearthed Electronic charts. Having already played alongside some of the heaviest hitters in the industry – Skrillex, RL Grime, Flosstradamus, Marshmello, just to name a few – Moss has positioned himself as a producer capable of rubbing shoulders with some of the world’s best.

Moss elevates the defiant raps of Genesis Owusu, leaning into his Indigenous heritage for a dramatic production that finds its home on October Records.

From the triple j text line to Instagram comments, everyone has shown such love for the track. Genesis Owusu’s vocals hit with such a powerful message and I wanted to connect that with my Indigenous heritage. I’m so glad everyone who’s listening is also connecting with that too.” Moss has combined his flair for emotive production and his passion for storytelling with the release of ‘SABRE TEETH’’, which received critical acclaim among many in the industry. triple j Breakfast presenter Ebony Boadu said, “This is easily the sickest drop I’ve heard this year.” While the upload on Unearthed received high praise from the likes of Lucy Smith, Dave Ruby Howe, Declan Byrne, and many more.

I had written a rough idea in LA a while ago and it had just been sitting on my laptop.

The track was co-produced by Aluna, Diplo and Durante. Speaking about the new track, Aluna reveals, “This song is about that moment when you’ve cleaned up the trash pile that was once your heart –you’re feeling yourself and you’ve worked out how to be alone but the past comes back to haunt you, hungry for your new self love and abundant vibes. Those are the moments you have to stay strong and really forget about your old love so that new fresh love can waltz into your life. When the one that got away comes back…what you gonna do? That’s not what I call destiny, you deserve better.” ‘Forget About Me,’ arrives with an official music video, directed by Reggie, who previously directed Aluna’s videos for ‘Don’t Hit My Line,’ and ‘The Recipe’ with KAYTRANADA feat. Rema. Talking about the video, Aluna explains, “The music video for ‘Forget About Me’ is an exploration of how to skip to that ‘new you’ feeling after a break up instead of all the drama we go through before we feel better.

The subtler melodies let the song’s vocals shine through as Krewella brings their A-game with sultry lyrics and a distorted vocal chorus. Krewella’s previous independent single was “Rewind” with Yellow Claw in July of 2020, though they also collaborated with Illenium and SLANDER on “Lay It Down” as a part of Illenium’s album. The release of “Never Been Hurt” lets us also assume that more new music will be released in the coming months. Check out what both artists have to say about this emotive, late-night friendly track: “The inspiration of ‘Never Been Hurt’ comes from the feeling of the body and heart slowly opening its doors again after being calloused by the pain of love. Surrendering to intimacy is a leap of faith, and in a way, memories of past loss or trauma become erased when we are ready to experience love again in its pure innocence. We wrote the song a few years ago and have been waiting for the right vibe to bring the song to the finish line. As sisters, we found it sweet to be collaborating with brothers Bernie and Johan Yang, and despite being confined to the internet during the pandemic, we managed to have a seamless flow of sending versions of the song back and forth.” – Krewella “Krewella has been one of our favorite artists that were responsible for inspiring us to make music. It’s so cool to work with the sisters since we are a brother duo. When we received ‘Never Been Hurt’ from the girls, its dark and contemporary style, along with its story, immediately resonated with us. After several back and forths, we were able to come up with an edgy vocal chop lead complemented by an infectious bassline, as well as contributing our own vocals into this dream collaboration. We absolutely can’t wait to perform this gem along with the girls on stage when we return to the US.” – Beauz Sisters Jahan and Yasmine exploded onto the scene in 2012 with their debut self-released EP “Play Hard,” which has now been streamed almost 150M times on Spotify alone; additionally, their single “Alive” from the EP has been certified Platinum. Since then, the duo has made a name for themselves and their hard-hitting yet melodic and vocal-driven sound through releases like “Live for the Night,” “Enjoy the Ride,” and more. In 2016, Krewella was awarded a coveted place on Forbes’s “30 Under 30” list. They have performed at major global music festivals, including Coachella, Lollapalooza, EDC Las Vegas, Ultra Music Festival, iHeartRadio Music Festival, and many others, in addition to their own headlining tours. As one of the main elements of the Krewella canon, the group’s onstage performances serve as the live extension of their music and art. Incorporating a multitude of audiovisual elements together with Jahan and Yasmine’s live vocals and powerful onstage energy. American duo BEAUZ composed of Bernie and Johan is a group of versatile, classy rockstars who decide their own destiny. Proving themselves to be virtuosos of music production, they quickly caught attention from top power players in the industry, landing them multiple official remixes. Most notably, their “Happy Now” remix has become a staple in Zedd’s DJ sets. In 2019, BEAUZ released the genre-bending Count The Hours with Armada, which became viral on Douyin and kicked off the duo’s first international tour spanning across North America and Asia. BEAUZ then collaborated with Spinnin’ Records to release Feel The Light as the first record on the new imprint Spinnin’ Asia, positioning the duo as the godfathers of Psypop. In 2020, BEAUZ hosted the avant-garde Blockeley festival featuring a star-studded lineup on Minecraft in collaboration with UC Berkeley and their management, KEYTEM. They released their first EP “BEAUZWORLD Vol. 1,” kicking off the BEAUZ IMPERIAL TOUR, stunting the world as the only international artists to deliver world class performances during the pandemic. Synonymous with a unique music brand and eluding an impeccable flair in everything they do, BEAUZ will not stop until they sit on the throne.

    • Vintage Culture and James Hype Unveil “You Give Me a Feeling” vintage-culture-james-hype-oz-edm

      Globetrotting DJs, Brazil’s Vintage Culture and UK’s James Hype join forces for their first-ever collab. Vintage Culture and James Hype are teaming up to lay claim to being the dancefloors favourite with their bouncing, housey, club focussed single, “You Give Me a Feeling,” serving as their debut appearance on Insomniac Records. With thousands of miles sitting between them, two of the most in-demand dance exports are closing the geographical gap from their respective origins by way of a temperature raising cross-continental collab. The beloved Brazilian iconoclast Vintage Culture is met halfway by breakout UK sensation James Hype, as they come together to concoct an irrepressible potion of sublime tech house. Bold and full-bodied, “You Give Me a Feeling” takes its claim as a true masterclass in club seduction. A sultry, pitched-down vocal hook presses those primitive buttons ever-so gently, while slinky rhythms and beefy basslines work their magic to bring uncontrollable urges to the surface. Crisp drum programming and stripped-down sensibilities keep the temperature rising through the roof. Once the club-pleasing record settles into its full stride, Vintage Culture and James Hype effectively turn those deep-seated desires into an endorphin-riddled climax that will leave listeners suspended in a dazed state of stimulation long after the concluding beat finishes the job. The multi-platinum hitmaker Vintage Culture, née Lukas Ruiz, has made himself comfortable at the top of charts and festival lineups the world over. His uncanny ability to coalesce ear-burrowing hooks with pulse-raising grooves carries over to create a universal appeal that translates on the decks just as much as it works for at-home streaming. The proof is in the numbers, as evidenced by the more than 2 billion streams he’s generated globally from standout tracks such as his smash single “It Is What It Is” featuring Elise LeGrow, the artisanal collab “Coffee” with Tiësto, as well as his far-flung remixes for Meduza, Diplo, David Guetta, and Moby. His dexterity inside the DJ booth is an animal all on its own, which attendees of this year’s EDC Las Vegas were thrilled to experience first-hand during his sun-kissed opening ceremony back-to-back set alongside Solardo, which was an added bonus to his closing solo main-stage performance at kineticFIELD. Rapidly becoming the DJ’s DJ, and globally recognised hitmaker, London-based James Hype has built up a buzz that has lived up to the definition of the latter half of the moniker he’s adopted. With a reputation preceding his every move on the worldwide circuit, James Hype has positioned himself as a must-see spectacle due to his technical transitions, one-of-a-kind bootlegs, ear-pricking mashups, and a crate-digging inclination only few can match. Those skills have led to a hectic touring schedule with stops at O2 Arena (London), Echo Arena (Liverpool), MEN Arena (Manchester), SSE Wembley (London), as well as gigs in Ibiza, Australia, Dubai, the US and beyond. His tastefully executed remixes have roped him into the inner circle of international heavyweights, having been commissioned by Bruno Mars, Meduza, Imanbek, Icona Pop, and Rita Ora. However, his original creations made him into a certified sensation in his own right, with the platinum “More Than Friends” and the HARLEE-assisted “Afraid” breaking into regular rotation on BBC Radio1, Capital Dance, and KISS100. “You Give Me a Feeling” not only finds common ground between the colossal chart-toppers, Vintage Culture and James Hype, but the effusive collab will permanently attach itself to our collective pleasure point the second it hits shelves today!

He put the two of us in touch and it has been the most organic process ever since – I couldn’t have asked for anything more. It was super interesting to also have Nicky Night Time onboard for this one and this track definitely highlights what artists these days can do from afar”.
