Welcome to Beats by Beat, our new mix series for electronic music lovers. Head here if you missed the previous Beats by Beat mix, produced by Melbourne label Houses in Motion.

The Primer crew, made up of Floss Dogg, Robbie Nine-O and Freddy Gardens, are quite the steezy bunch. The three come from the far lands of country New South Wales – Robbie and Floss met at university in Wagga Wagga and have been a power couple for nearly a decade now, and Robbie and Freddy’s friendship dates back to the days of their rowdy doom metal band.

The little family haven’t been in Melbourne for long, but they’ve made a solid name for themselves pretty quickly. Primer began within the dark walls at Boney before the crew scored a resident party at their new home, Sub Club. Each party boasts an inviting and committed crew, with a lineup that features some of Australia’s very best, including Jex Opolis, Josh Keys, Darcy Justice, Ben Fester, Otologic, Spin Club, Ryan Berkeley, Norachi, Adriana and Normal 4.

Primer are passionate about diversity in both their sound and culture, and for lucky Beat readers, they’ve curated a mix as steezy as themselves. The exclusive mix features some groovy, sick beats from locals Norachi, DJ Chrysalis and Nice Girl, and some secret unreleased tracks we’re not allowed to name.
