    • Tommy Trash, Go Freek and Lucy Lucy Release New Collab ‘Darkness Into Light’ darkness-into-light-tommy-trash-go-freek-lucy-lucy

      Three favourites of the Australian music scene, Tommy Trash, Go Freek and Lucy Lucy unite to bring you the euphoric dance weapon ‘Darkness Into Light’, out now via Club Sweat. Born out of the kind of ecstatic passion you only experience in the heavy fog and flickering strobes of a packed dance floor, this triple threat treats us to a fiery heater set to be a mainstay in pumping clubs and festivals alike. A powerful bass line groove and ascending synth stabs build intoxicating tension, before the husky and nuanced vocals of Lucy Lucy command the room, increasinging in intensity and leading to the ultimate release. The drop hits, bodies roll, and this electric trio remind you of what it’s like to fall in love on the dance floor. Who better to tell the story of this epic collaboration than Lucy Lucy herself, “‘Darkness Into Light’ was the by-product of the first debaucherous night after lockdown restrictions eased. Friends reuniting over a sticky dancefloor, finally back on our bullshit after too many months apart. Early in the evening Tommy, Caleb and I had arranged to do a session the next day – a few hours passed and we were definitely still out past our curfew. Caleb and I decide it’s a good time to have a club pash because maybe we were both really excited? We almost out of awkwardness didn’t do the session but we did and we now have this delicious song baby to show for it. Sealed with a kiss. Literally.” Go Freek confirms, “Writing ‘Darkness Into Light’ was about capturing the euphoria and ecstasy you would feel dancing the night away at a club pashing someone who you are falling in love with but only just met (which kinda went on the night before).” One of Australia’s most in-demand dance music exports over the past decade, GRAMMY nominated artist Tommy Trash returned to the scene in 2020 after a 2 year hiatus. Since then it has been full steam ahead for one of Australia’s most exciting electronic acts, with releases such as ‘Lil Bit’ with Peking Duk, the inaugural release on hau5trap with ‘hiiigh’, and ‘Emergency’ with Yolanda Be Cool. More recently, he released ‘Satisfy’ the debut record on his very own label Milky Wave, and ‘Jaguwawa’ on Sweat It Out receiving praise from the likes of Billboard, EDM.com, Dancing Astronaut and more. While recent years have seen the resurgence of Tommy Trash he has long been recognised as one of the top DJs of the era, breaking out with 2013 release ‘Reload’, which earned silver certification in the UK, going 2 x Platinum in Sweden, while his remix of deadmau5 ‘The Veldt’ earned him a coveted GRAMMY nomination. Time and time again Tommy Trash has proven his production and DJ talents are not bound to any genre or era, as he has electrified across festivals such as Tomorrowland, EDC, Ultra Music Festival, and more recently on his own headline ‘Jaguwawa’ across North America. Go Freek has become a leading force in the club scene locally and internationally, since breaking out with his ARIA Gold certified single ‘Define’, a collaboration with ARIA awarded dance producer Dom Dolla which has gone on to score over 50 million streams across platforms. Since then, Go Freek has gone on to release cross-over records such as, ‘Love Is The Weapon’, and ‘One Question’, while he recently released ‘Deep Cut’ on deadmau5’s own label Hau5trap as well as further releases on Solotoko, and Club Sweat with ‘Days Go By’, and ‘Be My Luv’. This year saw Go Freek collaborate with Mickey Kojak and Thandi Phoenix on emotive banger ‘Lose You’ via Sweat It Out. The Sydney artist’s extensive list of tech groovers have caught the attention of the likes triple j, SiriusXM, EDC Radio, Happy Mag, Acid Stag, and Purple Sneakers and endorsements from tastemakers such as Idris Elba, FISHER, Camelphat, Claptone, Anna Lunoe, Christian Martin, Porter Robinson and Diplo. No stranger to the dance scene, Go Freek has multiple AU/NZ tours under his belt as well as performances at EDC Las Vegas, Paradisco, Beyond Wonderland and Rabbits Eat Lettuce, to name a few. This past year alone has seen Lucy Lucy collaborate on and off the stage with some of the most prominent artists in Australia & beyond. Including the likes of SLUMBERJACK, Example, Chilln It, and What So Not, she’s proving she’s got the chops to party with the best of them, garnering millions of streams and an adoring fan base. After working exclusively within her electronic duo Yuma X since their debut in 2015, frontwoman and vocalist Lucy Washington recently embarked on her solo project Lucy Lucy. Recent singles ‘$25’, ‘Sugarcoated’ and ‘Apple Tree’ have garnered great support from triple j and triple j Unearthed with Declan Byrne noting her affinity for “mixing slinky, bouncy pop with lush, warm sounds…” and that “it’s always a treat when it comes to Lucy Lucy.” ‘Darkness Into Light feat. Lucy Lucy’ by Tommy Trash & Go Freek is out now via Club Sweat.  

    • 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!

    • Dave Winnel releases new single ‘Real Life’ + upcoming tour dates dave-winnel-real-life-2022-oz-edm-feature

      Step Out of the Metaverse and Into ‘Real Life’ with Dave Winnel. Sydney´s own Dave Winnel is conquering the world with his unique take on the house genre. After a string of massive singles in 2021 including ‘CEO’ and ‘Jungle Juice’, Dave Winnel is back with another house heater with his new single ‘Real Life’. With a dark and dirty bassline to get you moving, ‘Real Life’ sees Dave level up with one of his tastiest tunes to date. “‘Real Life’ was born during the lockdowns as we were constantly asking ourselves every day, “Is this really happening?” and “Is this really real life?”, explains Dave. “The lyrics are quite serious and dark, so I made the beat to match that intensity. With the artwork I explored the idea that although all this crazy stuff is happening in the world, there’s also this boom in the NFT- driven metaverse world where an online presence is more important over anything else.” Even through endless lockdowns, 2021 was a big year for Dave Winnel. 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’. Upcoming Tour Dates 11th June – La La Land, Brisbane 12th June – Ministry of Sound Testament, Sydney 8th July – Ivanhoe, Manly 12th Oct – Garden of Eden, Port Macquarie
