27 Jan Premiere: Daniel Verhagen – ‘Arcadia’






Melbourne’s dark and atmospheric electronic producer Daniel Verhagen has just released Delusion, a two track EP. Side one contains title track ‘Delusion‘, but it’s the b-side ‘Arcadia‘ that caught our attention.

Despite the thick continuous back thump, ‘Arcadia’ isn’t a house track or a dance track. It’s a heavily textural mood setter, best experienced while driving at night during a rainy storm, while imaging what life would be like working alone inside a lighthouse on a remote island. Which sounds bleak, but that’s ‘Arcadia’. The walloping chords push you sideways like coastal winds, the tracks core mechanics spontaneously flicker like failing street lights in a narrow alley. Even the piano notes trickle like the piano player’s fingers are cold from being out in the rain too long.

In other words; you’ll dig ‘Arcadia’ if you enjoy artists such as Zomby, Burial or Perturbator.

27 Jan Ripe Guest Mix with Slim Vibrato




Adam Ricco a.k.a. Slim Vibrato has recently headlined Glamorama, played at the Good Manners Melbourne Music Week closing party inside the Victorian State Library and is about to play some big gigs coming up. Tonight he’s playing at Crave David Presents: Stick n Poke at The Gasometer Hotel and it’s free to head down. To get you keen as mustard, he’s recorded a guest mix for us to share around:

“50.50 carefully weaves back and forth between all-encompassing techno and house to stripped-back material that seldom leaves my bedroom. Showcasing some of my most recent finds from labels old and new, this mix offers rhythmic diversity while still following a path somewhat linear.”

 

T R A C K L I S T
LK – ‘You Set My Body On Fire’
Telephones – ‘Kanal (Prins Thomas Sure Oppstøt)’
Pantha Du Prince – ‘Bohemian Forest’

20 Jan Ripe Guest Mix with Leafy Suburbs




Perth based artist Lyndon Blue, aka Leafy Suburbs, popped up on our radar when writer Blake Creighton introduced us to him late last year.

Around the same time his latest album Honda Jazz was released via Canberra label Moontown Records, and we had the opportunity to chat with Lyndon. He was kind enough to gift us with a guest mix as well, featuring music that constantly inspires his silky jazz textures. Down below he has dissected each track for us.

 

Mall Grab – ‘Drive

“Aw yiss, Mall Grab is pretty sick. His latest stuff has that nice blown out, minimal, jacking sound, and the Sun Ra EP on Church was really beautiful. But I’ve gotta keep my birdsong quota up, so couldn’t go past this rainforestey, slow-sipper from last year. It’s called ‘Drive‘ and reminds me of crisp winding car journeys through misty greenery in high altitudes, it probably had some influence on the more bucolic moments on Honda Jazz.”

 

The Person – ‘Enclosure

“I went on a tour with a bunch of new friends a while ago, and one of them was Minna Wight. She was dressed as a punk sausage and I was (sometimes) dressed as a giant slice of white bread. I soon discovered that in her other lives she’s half of the Steaming Jeans, and all of The Person. There are similar gated drum and portamento synth layering’s to the Kate Bush track, but to totally different effect; ‘Enclosure‘ is a kind of dozy but heavy funk workout. Like when you’re heavy-lidded on the dance floor but your feet just wanna keep going.”

 

Virna Lindt – ‘Underwater Boy

“Super wild and smooth psychedelic pop out of Sweden in the ’80s. Weirdly enough, this tune reminds me of Pond: the soulful chords, the sex-funk inclinations, the experimental noodling and the kinda comical vocal phrasing on silly lyrics like ‘X-ray eyes / my underwater boy’.”

 

Soda Lite – ‘Sky Reef

Alex Last is one person with whom I’ve enjoyed hanging out in dewy forests. I sampled him playing a Tasmanian church organ on the album track ‘Thylancine Fang‘. He’s a Perth boy originally and now based in Melbourne, where he makes beautiful music as Soda Lite and runs the Hi Tide label, in collaboration with Chloe who’s also an amazing artist and human. ‘Sky Reef‘ is his latest and it’s perfectly titled, an airy expanse under laid with colourful formations and bubbles.”

 

Jlin feat. Holly Herndon – ‘Expand

“Can’t stop listening to footwork lately, it’s kind of all my brain wants to hear‚ is that a super cliche dorky white person thing to say in 2016? Anyway, Jlin is one producer who’s really pushing in interesting directions, much like Holly Herndon who just constantly blows my mind. To catch them both on one track is a kind of freaky bliss.”

 

Lana – ‘Where You Are

Lana Rothnie is one of Perth’s most unique and experimental talents at the mo, if you want my opinion. This track feels like a fitting companion to Jlin & Holly Herdon: chopped irregular samples, unsettling arpeggios, fragmented synth/vocal drones. Lana also does dancey and more song-y stuff (we made a pop song together and it’s on the album), but I think this track showcases her especially wild imagination.”

 

Pharoah Sanders – ‘Astral Traveling

“This album I’m putting out, Honda Jazz, is not a real jazz album, although it does feature saxophone contributions from a Perth jazz player I really admire (Alana Macpherson). As far as sax and inner peace explorations go it feels fitting to include the one and only Pharaoh Sanders, in 100% cosmic cruise mode. Heavenly rhodes from Lonnie Liston Smith. The shimmery percussion and unique ‘bird effects’ (how did they do that??) are so special, too.”

 

Ruth White – ‘Magician

“I wanted to include some totally insane early electronic music in this mix and I almost went with Morton Subotnick (even his name sounds like an eccentric robot) but Ruth White won out ’cause she’s spookier. The music on Seven Trumps From The Tarot Card And Pinions (1968) was commissioned for a performance a year earlier, but it definitely shines by itself as a dense and slightly terrifying listening experience. Her Flowers of Evil record from ’69 is another real trip, where she recites Baudelaire poems over demonic drones and soundscapes. For something less hectic, the Klassik O’Tilt album is a cool classical moog type collection (a la Wendy Carlos), featuring the version of ‘Flight of the Bumblebee‘ sampled on Jaylib’s Da Rawkus.”

 

Ryo Kawasaki – ‘Hawaiian Caravan

“Yeah, it kinda sounds like a scrubbed-up, joyous Sun Araw track with a crazy brief footworky intro… But in fact it’s a jam from Japanese jazz/fusion guitarist Ryo Kawasaki made over 30 years ago. Ridiculously fun to listen to, I reckon. It featured on a reissue comp via Nu Northern Soul earlier this year, Selected Works 1979 to 1983.”

 

Kate Bush – ‘Mother Stands for Comfort

“This is one of my favourite Kate Bush songs, and by extension probably one of my favourite songs in general. Eberhard Weber‘s upright bass slides around like an eel, the drums are all jagged and tense, the lead synth has this smokey slippery quality, and there are all these amazing sounds from the Fairlight sampler synth. Kate’s vocals are subdued and eerie as she sings about a mother’s love being unconditional, to the point where she’ll keep her child’s murderous secrets; Am I the cat that takes the bird to her? Mother will stay mum… Goosebumps.”

20 Jan Trading Tunes with Chelsea Bleach



Since premiering Chelsea Bleach‘s debut single ‘Public Safety‘ last year, we’ve been curiously following their progress. Tonight they finally launch their debut EP Decent Connections at The Tote in Collingwood, with support from Cable Ties, Kandere, Palm Springs and DJ Sov Trax.

I like to describe them as garage IPM (intelligent punk music), because they’re more diplomatic than pure force with their punkness. If 2016 only saw them testing the waters, then with this EP in 2017 they’re doing a full on knee splash bomb.

Each member of the band has contributed a track from another Melbourne-based act for their take on Trading Tunes.

GL – ‘Number One’

GL is definitely in my top 10 list of Melbourne bands. This is such a fun dance track, and I could listen to Ella Thompson’s angelic vocals all day. Just a warning – the bouncy bass, catchy vocals and sparkly synths will probably be stuck in your head for days. I love this quirky video with it’s amazing colour coordination and visual composition.”

Various Asses – ‘Down, Down’

“I really love the vibes on the whole Locion release by Various Asses but this track is a standout for me. I love the heavy bass and variety of samples in the track. I find it’s always stuck in my head. I was lucky enough to catch Various Asses live for the first time recently and it was such an incredible experience it truly blew my mind. Raquel (from VA) is also the drummer in one of my fave bands Palm Springs and to be honest, I think she’s a musical genius.”

Huntly – ‘Please’

“The first time hearing this song was during a live performance. It’s got a full energy, great groove and relatable lyrics. This recording does not let you down on that front. From the quirky keys at the start, to the catchy melodies, this song has to be a fave of mine. I would be lying if I said I don’t sing and boogie to it every time I hear it. A great track from a fantastic Melbourne band.”

RVG – ‘That’s All’

RVG are my favourite band in Melbourne right now and I love everything about this song. It evokes emotions in me every time I hear it, regardless of the fact that I’ve listened to it a ridiculous amount of times. Keep an eye out for their new album this year, and if you haven’t seen them play live you are missing out.”

Friendships – ‘Paradise’

“Off their debut Album Nullarbor 1988-1989 , Friendship‘s ‘Paradise‘ is some seriously hard-hitting techno — like a punch in the guts in a really good way. This whole album is stellar in my opinion, but if you haven’t caught Friendships live yet then make it a New Years resolution – as an audio visual duo their music is meant for the stage. Totally terrifying and unique, with strong characterisation and spoken word elements. I’m so psyched for what they’ll bring out next.”

18 Jan Trading Tunes with Whiskey Houston




Ahead of the Sugar Mountain Festival this weekend in Melbourne, local legend Katie Pearson A.K.A. Whiskey Houston has kindly traded some tunes with us. If you’re wondering why you can’t see her name on the Sugar Mountain line-up, it’s because she’s playing in a secret club, hidden within the grounds of Sugar Mountain. The secret club is called Absolut Nights presents Studio 45 and if you find it, not only will you get the best disco, house and club bangers via Whiskey Houston, but Andee Frost, Kate Miller and 2 secret international acts.

You can also catch Whiskey Houston on the 4th of February at The Gasometer. Until then, here’s Whiskey Houston’s Trading Tunes based on the theme of ‘secretly queer songs’.

Wham! – ‘Blue (Armed With Love)’

“A huge hurdle to coming out is doing it alone. A lot of queers will keep their queerness quiet until they’ve fallen for someone because you feel a whole lot less vulnerable when you’ve got some company for that kind of journey. It’s such a smooth jam for such a heart-breaking story.”

Dusty Springfield – ‘In Private’

“This is maybe my favourite thing the Pet Shop Boys ever did, and definitely my favourite Dusty song. She craftily includes the lyric, “When you run back to your wife?”, which would have been a her sharp defence against the homophobes to get the song some mainstream airtime.”

The Skatt Brothers – ‘Life At The Outpost’

“This song is the namesake of a disco night I run with a couple of friends called The Outpost. “What a way to keep up your raging” indeed. The Skatt Brothers made masculine disco with hyper-homoerotic lyrics and had the world thinking they really were into wooing the ladies with their cowboy ways.”

Material & Nona Hendryx – ‘Busting Out’

Nona Hendryx is a bit of a musical genius. She’s a third of Labelle and wrote a lot of their music, pretty much all the sexier later stuff. She made a bunch of amazing new wave and had video clip banned from MTV for having drag queens in it. It’s said that she wrote this song with Material to celebrate finally busting out of that awfully grim closet.”

Carl Bean – ‘Born This Way’

“Ok, so there’s nothing secret about this one at all. This was probably the most unfiltered and direct declaration of a person’s queerness at that point in time (1977!). Queer or not, it’s impossible to not feel overwhelmingly gay when this comes on, but maybe that’s just me being a massive queer.”

19 Dec Ripe Guest Mix with Tomsk – Ciggie Saturday Special




It’s summer time in Australia, which means we have a series of guest mixes on the way for the holiday season. First off, we have this special little mix from Melbourne-based Tomsk, who has kindly made us a mix ahead of the Christmas Eve Ciggie Saturday event at The Gasometer Hotel in Collingwood. We will let the man himself give us a rundown of what’s inside the mix.

“This mix kicks off with an unreleased track from myself — setting the tone with a jungle-like ’90s warp records inspired jam I made after dropping out of Uni halfway through this year. The bass line and melodies were made in one take, but the percussion was meticulously edited over a couple of weeks. ‘Time Rippa‘ is a track I put up earlier this year, [and] it’s definitely a trip! My brother described it perfectly – it’s like Aphex Twin mixed with The Chemical Brothers – two of my main inspirations!

I have included three other tracks from Melbourne mates — one from the rising live techno and electro outfit Glome. This one is a scorcher! Pounding broken beat kick resembling that of a industrial robotic arm chugs through, while the track is climaxing in a fierce electro locked groove. Next is another unreleased track, this one from the mysterious Runsthevoodoodown, who has been a regular selector at Ciggie Sundays this year. ‘Skyline‘ is an incredible warping break-beat extravaganza! We are both getting inspiration from similar sources at the moment, I know for a fact he has a whole lot of unreleased fire in his arsenal so keep an eye on him for sure.

The last track of the mix is from Escape Artist, who is one half of Continent. They will be debuting their live set on Christmas Eve for us. I was immediately taken back by this one, ‘Drum and Space’. It’s a kind of deconstructed jungle track with sparse interwoven rhythms and a cascading wash of arpeggios to cap it off.”
