02 Aug Trading Tunes with CC:DISCO!




In this edition of Trading Tunes we had a chat with Melbourne radio and DJ veteran CC:DISCO! – one of the most respected voices in the country when it comes to house and disco music. Between playing almost every festival in the country and hosting Smoke and Mirrors on PBS FM, she’s found the time to send us her five of her favourite ’80s tunes.

You can catch her alongside Funkineven, Damiano Von Erckert, Darshan Jesrani, Otologic, Edd Fisher, Jnett, Simon Caldwell, Babicka, Ben Fester, Prequel, Adi Toohey, Andee Frost and many more at up the upcoming Fuego Revolutions series of club events, presented by Bacardi in Sydney and Melbourne this month.

Richie Rome – ‘Deep’

“I love this record. Most people know Richie Rome from the being the man behind The Ritchie Family, but he was actually producing lots of other music under a couple of aliases. “Deep” has to be the pick from this record also titled Deep. It’s so ’80s with a full classical music style arrangement, then add some synth and a talkbox and welcome to the ’80s ay.”

Thelma Houston – ‘You Used To Hold Me’

“How about that time Thelma [Houston] turned around and ditched the disco for a bit and made AMAZING boogie. This has to be my favourite Thelma tune, the raw emotion on this matched with the sax is out of this world. A slow jam yes, but played at the right moment on the dance floor, it’s incredible in a club.”

Larry Heard – ‘Stars’

Larry Heard, basically one of the most influential producers of house music was always way ahead of his time. Larry, much like the Japanese producers from the late ’70s, early ’80s, was a leader in this field creating music you could release today. Timeless tunes. Larry was, and always will be known for being a pioneer of house music. From tunes like this to “What About This Love“, his depth in his productions are so inspiring, and you can hear real emotion in his music.

The System – ‘Almost Grown’

“Having only recently come across this record, this is a really good example of how broad an artist was in the ’80s. You got some songs sounding like Tame Impala, and then a bunch more sounding like they came straight from Larry Heard. Amazing record which is being repressed from Jamie Tiller‘s label Music from Memory.”

Kimiko Kasai – ‘I Felt Ya Glancin’

“Let’s end on the high note, a tune you will have stuck in your head for days on end with the ‘bow bow ba bow”. Recently in Japan, I was hoping to come across a few of these and certainly came back with two (just in case). UPBEAT as hell and it’s a joy to play out. “Ba ba baaa bow ba ba ba bowwww” Its fun, cheesy as hell, but a tune’s a tune right?”

28 Jul Trading Tunes with Chook Race




In this edition of Trading Tunes we had a chat with Rob Remedios from Chook Race about their mammoth year ahead, and in turn he sent us some of his favourite music that has come out of Brisbane – befitting Chook Race’s sunny, garage sound.

Chook Race have been making multiple appearances in our weekly Ripe Guide to Australia’s Best New Music, and last week they made it to Number 2 with the release of their new, sensational song ‘Hard To Clean‘. With their new LP Around The House due to come out September 2nd via Brisbane label Tenth Court and US label Trouble In Mind Records, Chook Race are set for a big breakout summer later this year. Alongside their LP release they’ll also be touring the US from September to October, with one last Australian tour date in Melbourne before they fly off – find their tour date listing below.

Rob: I’ve never spent a great deal of time in Brisbane, but constantly find myself drawn to Brisbane music; from The Purple Hearts to Thigh Master and a whole heap of stuff in between. I think it probably started in Year 7 when I first heard Custard’sGirls Like That (Don’t Go For Guys Like Us)”… Has a song about unrequited love ever made you feel that good? I think not!

 

The Saints – ‘One Way Street’

Rob: An obvious choice perhaps, but if this doesn’t make you want to pick up a guitar and stomp around then I don’t know what will.

The Go Betweens – ‘Don’t Let Him Come Back’

Rob: What a hit. A great song with a great story. And a ripping little harmonica solo too. I also particularly enjoy the sound of this recording. Makes my ears feel good.

Clang – ‘Security Man’

Rob: Cheer up, mr security man.

A Leap In The Dark – ‘Samurai’

Rob: Who the hell doesn’t want to be a Samurai?! What a gem. Found this one via the marvellous Wallaby Beat blog, which seems to have slowed down these days unfortunately.

Custard – ‘Pinball Lez’

Rob: My favourite Custard song this week. Again, a great pop song and a great story; all delivered with a knowing smile. “The casinos are rigged to beat you!”

15 Jul Ripe Guest Mix with Christopher Port




Christopher Port from Melbourne caught our attention a few months ago with his polished live sets around town and single release ‘Bump‘. Today he’s releasing his debut five track EP Vetement and to celebrate he has also sent us a guest mix.

Christopher: It’s a 36 minute long mix, full of tunes that are different to the other mixes I’ve done in the past. It’s more subdued, focused around beautiful harmonies and melodies instead of drums. All the tracks have a melancholic quality to them which I love.

Christopher’s been a drummer for Airling and #1 Dads, and has taken that strong rhythmic and methodical approach to his EP – creating layers of sharp and interesting arrangements. If you enjoy the rhythmic led electronic music of Factory Floor or even Lunice and Hyetal, then Christopher Port will intrigue you.

You can catch Christopher Port playing at the Volumes Festival in Sydney on Friday the 26th of August.

ALBUM ART It's Vermentino Dickhead edits, cuts and tools(1)

15 Jul Premiere: Friendships – ‘It’s Vermentino Dickhead: Edits, Cuts & Tools’ EP





Melbourne audio-visual duo Friendships have just dropped an unexpected EP It’s Vermentino Dickhead: Edits, Cuts & Tools.

Nic Brown: This is a collection of edits, cuts and tools I have made to use in club/DJ sets. I want to keep the club conscious, have all my influences easily accessible, and be able to have my favourite musicians and poets fit into a club environment and fall into our sound. I want to hear Abe Nouk or Yorkston/Thorne/Khan at 3am. It’s important to keep a place of escapism somewhat aware.

T R A C K L I S T
Abe Nouk x Oscar Key Sung ‎– ‘My Apology x All I Think About pt 2’
SHOUSE ft. Habits – ‘Whisper (friendships remix)’
Thelovelyme x Friendships- ‘Escapades’
Kirin J Callinan – ‘Embracism (Friendships Otra Vez edit)’
Yorkston/Thorne/Khan – ‘Knochentanz (Friendships edit)’
Friendships – ‘Fuq em d00d (What Don’t I Sling) VIP Original Mix’
Milwaukee Banks – ‘Pluto Bounce (friendships Post-Apocalypse Grave-Rave Remix)’
Fortunes – ‘Bomber (Friendships in tune death remix)’


 

The diverse range of local artists remixed, such as SHOUSE, Kirin J Callinan, Milwaukee Banks and Fortunes explains what makes Friendships a hard duo to categorise, and why every new release is exiting and not routine. The dark dramatic ending to the remix of ‘Bomber‘ by Fortunes in particular sees Friendships apply their signature twilight and frightened sound to create quite a gripping experience.

Two originals also feature on the eight track EP, a sign of good things to come for their debut album LP Nullarbor 1988-1989 which is set to be released September 30th.

See below a video from their live set at Golden Plains earlier this year – a real highlight for the duo this year.

Ben Houghton 2400x1600

14 Jul Ripe Guest Mix with Ben Houghton





Our latest Ripe Guest Mix comes from Melbourne based electronic producer Ben Houghton, whose crisp production caught our attention.

Ben: This mix is a bit of a cross section of my brain at the moment. I wanted to cover a lot of ground, play lots of styles and tempos – that’s how it came together! A bunch of my favourite records from the collection, a few classics, some awesome Australian music, and plenty of heavyweight house and techno for good measure.

Ben’s sound is seemingly influenced by the dark and atmospheric beats of Berlin, as he focuses on defining each layer in order to create chaotic adrenaline. His approach explores and fleshes out ideas with patience and controlled pacing.

His recent release of ‘Beta Blocker‘ on 12″ vinyl includes two remixes by Harvey Sutherland and Inkswel, and his other track ‘Softly Spoken‘.

Catch Ben performing at the Momentary Records 001 12″ Launch Party at The Gasometer Hotel on Saturday the 6th of August.
LINK: Momentary Records 001 12″ launch party

We would like to thank Ben for taking the time out to create this exclusive mix for Ripe – here is the track list for the mix, and below the link to his latest track ‘Beta Blocker’.


T R A C K L I S T
Fit Siegel + Tim Love Lee ‎– ‘Living Is Serious Business (Life Acappella)’

03 Jul Trading Tunes with The Goods

The Goods are an electronic, RnB duo from Sydney consisting of Bangaltar and D’Awesome. Last week they released their debut self-titled double EP and we think it’s the best Australian RnB album of the year (so far).

What makes them standout within the Australian RnB landscape is their background in production. The psychedelic, spaced-out, house influenced and deep funk beats are as prevalent as the lyrics, which is uncommon in Australia. The double EP is also well paced and never forceful. The Goods let the listener come to them, rather than forcing their presence on a listener.

The acid-flow vocals could be compared to Janelle Monáe, but with the voice of Reggie Watts, while the melting production sounds contain traces of Toro Y Moi. The skit tracks provide a dynamic, that allow the key singles ‘Only One‘ and ‘Nightlife‘ to really standout.

Their trading tunes choices are themed around Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis.

“The theme we’ve picked is Jam & Lewis productions and it was pretty hard to keep it to five, they’re without doubt one of the heaviest and most prolific production duos ever and they still got it! Always ahead of the curve and keeping it fresh while retaining their identity. A massive influence on The Goods, we love their drum programming and the way they use synth and electric bass at the same time. Serious funk. Enjoy Yo’selves!”
