Define your genre in five words or less:

Afrobeat that moves them feet!

 

Bearing the terrible clichéd nature of this question, what do you reckon people will say you sound like?

The funk of Fela's Africa, the rhythms of the tropics, the swagger of Parliament and the fire of Public Enemy.

 

Tell us about the last song you wrote.

The System...

So then, what’s the band name and what do you ‘do’ in the band?
El Moth – a lot of inexplicable extra-curricular activities with a healthy dose of music on the side.

What do you reckon people will say you sound like?
Better than nails down a chalkboard, these guys are actually alright for a bunch of drunks (minus Leon, he's a good boy!)

What do you love about making...

Released off the back of last week’s Splendour lineup announcement, The Wave is a lovely cut from Happy To You, the second album by this idiosyncratic Swedish soul pop collective. A joyful, feather light blend of piano notes and skittering drums bubbling into vibrant electro pop, from a band that lifts the roof off a live set. Bring on July.

Chet Faker is two things: a beard and a voice. According to his publicist, the much-feted electro artist hails from Melbourne’s “tight-knit disco and house music scene” (the first rule of Melbourne’s tight-knit disco and house music scene is you do not talk about Melbourne’s tight-knit disco and house music scene) but there is little trace of these roots in his sound. There are beats...

Define your genre in five words or less:
New Orleans style-street funk.

 

So, um... what is New Orleans style street funk?
New Orleans is known to most people as the birthplace of jazz. But as pop music took over the rest of the world, the New Orleans street bands were still doing their thing. They evolved too, as they were influenced by ground breaking funk...

A suitably engaged Tom Showtime began collecting and spinning records in London in early 2000, seemingly motivated by his musical surroundings. After returning home to Melbourne in 2008, he releasedThe Showtime EP and followed up with EP3013 last year. After spending five years in the UK collecting records and focusing on becoming a DJ, he was messing around with beat making although...

Not all teenagers are slaves to the hit machine; there are a select few who are carving out their own musical paths that lead them to worship far more credible genres and idols. The Cactus Channel belong to this select few, displaying tastes and talent befitting for a far more mature musical outfit. The soul revival is alive and well in Melbourne and The Cactus Channel are its newest...

One of the most beautiful coincidences within the realms of music journalism is when the title of the artist is also a descriptor for their style of music. Scottish/American alt-rock now with added hints of grunge and electro. For the love of God shut the fuck up and realise your irrelevancy.

With latest effort Let's Ride set to drop very soon, Krafty Kuts is well overdue for a date in Melbourne - no stranger to Australian shores, the alias of Martin Reeves is an understandably notorious one.

 

Since discovering the world of electro and hip-hop sounds early in the nineties, he started his own record shop and quickly developed an encyclopaedic knowledge of dance music...
