    • Carnage’s Final Shows To Be Held at Australia’s Lunar Electric carnage-thank-you-farewell-tour-scaled-feature-oz-edm

      After a whirlwind fourteen years in the dance music industry, famed Festival Trap founder Carnage has announced his retirement at the age of 31. Carnage’s groundbreaking work in the early 2010s helped usher in a new genre called “festival trap,” a thunderous, 808-heavy twist on the saturated electro music that dominated festivals at the time. Buoyed by a thriving SoundCloud community, festival trap quickly became a movement—and Carnage was its vanguard. While dance music was his primary focus, Carnage’s brushstroke painted a far more colorful mosaic in the music community. He operated as a prolific hip-hop producer, collaborating with a myriad of the world’s top rappers, such as Mac Miller, Migos, Rick Ross, Wiz Khalifa, Young Thug and Meek Mill, among many others. Lunar Electric is set to host the final two performances from Carnage after he announced his farewell to the dance music community earlier this month. Lunar Electric will take place in Parramatta Park in Sydney on June 4, followed by Doug Jennings Park on the Gold Coast on June 11, 2022. Also on the bill with Carnage’s history-making set is a heart-thumping lineup featuring the likes of Pendulum, Darude, Sunset Bros, Tigerlily, Enschway, Dimatik, Hooligan Hefs and many more.

    • Moss Has Heart-Melting Bass On ‘Speed Dial’ In Latest Release With BRIA moss-speed-dial-oz-edm-feature-2021

      Australia’s rising star Moss returns with a heavy-hitting follow up to ‘SABRE TEETH’, releasing ‘SPEED DIAL (feat. BRIA)’ via October Records. After making a splash with his triple j Unearthed DIY Supergroup winning track, Moss picks up where ‘SABRE TEETH (feat. 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 Unleashes ‘SABRE TEETH’ featuring Genesis Owusu moss-from-the-start-2020-feature-oz-edm

      Fresh off being crowned champion of triple j Unearthed’s 2021 DIY Supergroup, Brisbane-based, Indigenous producer Moss officially releases ‘SABRE TEETH (feat. Genesis Owusu)’ and announces his signing to October Records. Impressing peers alike, the highly anticipated release captured the attention of the triple j audience from the first listen, with Genesis Owusu coming on board as an official feature artist. The bass-heavy single utilises samples from Touch Sensitive, San Cisco, Vallis Alps, Alison Wonderland, and the hard-hitting intensive vocals of Genesis Owusu, combining them with intensive breakdowns and a distinctive didgeridoo-infused bass drop. Moss elevates the defiant raps of Genesis Owusu, leaning into his Indigenous heritage for a dramatic production that finds its home on October Records. On the response to ‘SABRE TEETH’, Moss said, “The response to SABRE TEETH so far has been mind blowing. 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. The track has quickly become one of the most played on the station, while also receiving online support from the likes of NME and The Music Network. Beyond ‘Sabre Teeth’ his debut single ‘Lullabye’ surpassed 200,000 streams in its first month, following up with ‘idek’ which was supported by some of the industry’s finest including Marshmello, Yellow Claw, Jauz, Ghastly, and Zeds Dead among others. His recent discography in the form of ‘From The Start (feat. Kember Gold)’ and ‘Shimmer’ both received airplay on triple j, and also made their way to the top of the triple j Unearthed Electronic charts. In a few short years, Moss has already played alongside some of the world’s biggest artists that have had a great impact on Moss’ own artistry, the likes of Skrillex, RL Grime, Flosstradamus, Baauer, and Nero. Moss is far from an overnight success, but if this short warm-up is anything to go by, Moss’ name will be embedded on the world’s stage in years to come. Moss releases ‘SABRE TEETH (feat. Genesis Owusu)’ via October Records.  

    • SLUMBERJACK & Nicole Millar Drop New Collab ‘Not For You’ slumberjack-australia-2021-oz-edm-feature

      Already showcasing the light and shade across their 2021 releases as the forthcoming album title ‘Dichotomy’ so aptly suggests, Perth duo SLUMBERJACK share their latest blend of dark pop ‘Not For You’. For the release, the pair have teamed up Sydney’s own Nicole Millar – the talented singer-songwriter who has become one of the most sought after topliners after breaking through on Peking Duk’s record ‘High’, before going on to have an incredible solo career, with her debut LP ‘Excuse Me’ featuring a string of hit singles including ‘Tremble’, ‘Blindfolded’, and ‘Signals’. The new single perfectly complements each of the artist’s individual styles, whilst coming together to create a  seamless and magnetic component of the wider debut album due later this year. Detailing the contrast in their own style, the duo share, “For us, this song is all about that moment, right at the start of the chorus, where it feels like you’ve just executed the perfect double bounce on a trampoline and you’re absolutely floating. Definitely our bounciest record to date – which fits perfectly in the Dichotomy of the album, we wanted to explore both ends of the spectrum and you can’t have the darker stuff without the fun and playful records. Nicole also was incredible on this one, we went back and forth on so many amazing versions of the song but we felt like we nailed the one that made the final recording!”  Speaking on the opportunity to finally collaborate, Nicole shares “The boys and I have been friends for years and I’ve always been a big fan of their music. I had written a rough idea in LA a while ago and it had just been sitting on my laptop. I sent the idea to the boys and they fell in love, after working back and forth together they just really turned this song into something special. I’m so excited for everyone to hear ‘Not For You’.” Carving out their own unique space in the dance music scene in Australia, SLUMBERJACK have continued to prove themselves as innovators amongst their peers. Having been known for their big room bass records, and festival anthems, the duo’s ability to be fluid across genres without losing the incomparable SLUMBERJACK touch, has amassed them an army of fans around the world. This year alone, the duo teamed up with Sydnee Carter for the release of the powerful single ‘Poison’, garnering over 3 million streams to date, and support from triple j, and the release of ‘Memory feat. Tailor’ / ‘The Reprise’, again highlighting their extensive and creative range. Boasting over 150+ million streams across their releases to date, as well as certified Gold records for both their SLUMBERJACK EP and hit single ‘Fracture (Feat. Vera Blue)’, the duo continue to deliver works suitable for the biggest stages in the world. Continuing to collaborate with a wide range of local talent including Alison Wonderland, What So Not,  KLP, and Daniel Johns to name a few, SLUMBERJACK have become an integral part of the Australian dance scene. SLUMBERJACK’s new single ‘Not For You (Feat. Nicole Millar)’ is out now on Sweat It Out; get your first liewn below!

    • 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.

    • 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.
