24 Dec The 100 Best Australian Tracks 2017


Looking back on the year that’s been, 2017 has been exceptional. So many of our Aussie artists have exploded overseas, exposing the amazing talent we have here. The element of live performance has also evolved, as we see more and more the creative and the adored putting on insane performances that leave us all in awe.
It is truly an inspiring time in Australian music to see the growth and abundance of talent.

Therefore, as is tradition, we have compiled what we hope to be a comprehensive, exciting and awe-inspiring list of great Australian music.
The list doesn’t just feature a diverse range of genres. It is rightfully made up of many different artists from all walks of life. We’re absolutely delighted to see such a spectrum of artists receiving the attention they deserve!

To help accommodate (and celebrate) as many great tracks as we can, we have decided to limit our annual Australian Top 100 Tracks list to only one song per artist.

It’s been another big year for the Wax’O Paradiso crew in Melbourne. Throwing parties left, right and centre and playing everywhere from the Fairfield Boathouse to the Collingwood Arts Precinct, RMIT to shows throughout Germany, Netherlands, Belgium and the UK. In other words, they haven’t slept and the parties aren’t stopping for Wax’O Paradiso, with a New Years Day set at Freedom Time in the Coburg Velodrome.

This year Freedom Time is also in Perth on New Years Eve and in Sydney January 7th, making it quickly the national festival for electronic music around New Years. Some of the artists on the tour include Larry Heard, Johnny Osbourne, Sassy J, Harvey Sutherland, CC:Dissco, Nai Palm, Sampa The Great, No Zu, Bradley Zero, Silentjay & Jace XL, Sassy J, Krakatau, and many more. It’s an amazing collection of international and local artists, hosted by people who understand how to create a friendly and fun environment for everyone.

Wax’O Paradiso have sent us their installment of Trading Tunes with a little comment attached: “Theme is Sassy Music for Sassy J who is playing on our stage on NYD.”

Freedom Time: Perth December 31st
Freedom Time: Melbourne January 1st
Freedom Time: Sydney January 7th

De De – ‘S & M (Sexy Music – Rated X)’

“Sexy music for the freaks.”

Ce Moi – ‘Just Give it up (Instrumental)’

“Killer dubbed-out boogie cut with a shimmering intro and attitude to boot. Goes perfect with a full size harp and a glass of the orange stuff.”

Magnifique – ‘Magnifique (Part I)’

“Fantastique cosmic disco that sits perfectly between the paradiso/dystopio divide. The question is, can u take it??”

Perfect Taste – ‘It’s over’

“Absolutely huge dub/street soul version of the Odyssey classic. Play it loud, rewind selectah, play it again.”

Blondie – ‘Rapture (Special Disco Version)’

“We’re fashionably late to the party on this one, soz about it. 10 minute version of Blondie’s Rapture. Not one, but two Debbie Harry rap verses to bookend the breakdown. Sass.”

15 Dec Trading Tunes with Nite Fleit


Nite Fleit from Sydney has played at almost every exciting local event this year, from Daydreams to Cool Room and Club D’érange, from Lucid to even bigger events like Peel Street Festival and Splendour In The Grass. Nite Fleit has become a must see and feel experience, especially after 2am when she transforms venues into a wild vortex of varied deep house bangers.

If you’ve never had the chance to see Nite Fleit play in person, she’s playing at both Let Them Eat Cake and Pitch Music Festival. Two big stages with large enough PAs to do her super sonic onslaught justice.

To get you excited, Nite Fleit has sent us her five current favourite tracks!

Let Them Eat Cake: Tickets
Pitch Music Festival: Tickets

Umwelt – ‘Strange Attractor’

“This is newish from Umwelt, who I am obsessed with. Electro dystopian vibes.”

A Credible Eye Witness – ‘Episode 9’

“I first heard of A.C.E.W. when Helena Hauff put Episode 6 in her Essential Mix – all episodes are great to be honest, but 9 is my favourite – binge-worthy viewing.”

Scratch Massive – ‘Girls On Top’

“More electro – a lol, but sick vocal.”

Minimum Syndicat – ‘1991’

“Rave track / Sxc clip.”

I Hate Models – ‘Last Kiss Before Death’

“Huge track – my favourite to play at the moment.”

10 Dec Trading Tunes with Dream Wife


Women and all-female bands were kicking serious ass in 2017, with Dream Wife helping lead the way in the UK. Rakel Mjöll, Alice Go and Bella Podpadec pack a serious stage presence — a memorable 1, 2, 3 punch! Dream Wife take influences from 70’s punk all the way up to the 2000’s garage-rock revival.

Let’s Make Out‘ is a cross between Does It Offend You, Yeah? and The Hives, two 2000’s bands who had explosive live shows. ‘Somebody‘ has the charm of Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the tightness of The Kills. Nostaglia is definitely part of the Dream Wife charm, but there are plentiful modern peer comparisons to be found in their music, such as Ex Hex, Speedy Ortiz, and the Sleater-Kinney comeback. These influences help Dream Life attain a diversity that keeps their sound as electric as their natural energy, making them a perfect fit for the hot afternoon time-slot on the Laneway Festival touring circuit.

Their self-titled debut album is set for release on January 26th and they’ve sent us five tracks that inspired it!

Laneway Festival Tour Dates:
Singapore
: Saturday 27th January
Auckland: Monday 29th January
Adelaide: Friday 2nd February
Melbourne: Saturday 3rd February
Sydney: Sunday 4th February
Brisbane: Saturday 10th February
Fremantle: Sunday 11th February

The Strokes – ‘Last Nite’

“It’s just a really really good pop song. The spikey hooky sounds of the Strokes have been with us on this journey so far with the debut album. The Strokes’ pop sensibilities are something that as a band we would definitely align ourselves with and you can hear coming through on the album. There is no shame in pop.”

Le Tigre – ‘Deceptacon’

“This pumped up Kathleen Hannah anthem is one of our faves, and Le Tigre are a constant inspiration to us. We play this track a lot at our DJ sets. The ‘up’ guitary vibes and fun bouncey vox on this track were in our conversations when in the mixing stage of the record. We really tried to channel the same energy on certain tracks, from upping the beat, to driving the axes just a little more.”

Bikini kill – ‘Rebel Girl’

“Another one from Kathleen, the raw power on this track really revs you up, makes you wanna go cause some mischief with your girl gang. We were really aiming to nail the live sound on record, and the sonic quality of Rebel Girl was in our minds.”

Yeah Yeah Yeahs – ‘Maps’

“From the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s debut album, Fever to Tell, this track is soft yet powerful. When writing the album we were definitely thinking about this song and album, and the softer sides of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs clashing and playing off their wild energy. This similar sonic juxtaposition is a technique we definitely incorporate, and have tried to hone in on with our album. Karen O’s vocal in Maps is a really great example of the tone we tried to achieve on our album, with the vox. There is a real power and also a sensitivity to her voice.”

The Cribs – ‘Hey Scenesters’

“This lil classic was a teenage favorite for us, from 2005’s golden age of british Indie. The guitar riffs and tones on this track are hooky and raw, a sound we have definitely tried to achieve axe-wise, on our debut.”

22 Nov Trading Tunes with Planète


Photos by Nikki Williams


It’s been one year since we sat down with Planète for a lengthy interview. Since then he’s released the pulsating night-drive tune ‘Guided by Flux‘, while he tunes up for a potential EP or LP release. Until then he’s playing at the Melbourne Music Week x Good Manners closing party on November 25th on a stacked line-up including headliner Jacques Greene, and local legends Banoffee, Darcy Baylis, Exhibitionist and Jennifer Loveless!

You may have seen these artists play before, but never inside the holy St. Pauls Cathedral, an experience to tell the kids one day that’s worth every digital dime. Click here for the link to the tickets. In the meantime, here are some tracks Planète has sent us to keep us in the mood:

Christopher Port – ‘Raver VIP’

“Not much really to say about Porty, apart from being a firm commander of hectic U.K. infused burners, his tunes do all the talking. Love how this track and others tease with beautiful and honestly reciprocated filthy textures and elements. Only VIP here is C.P.”

Albrecht La’Brooy – ‘Tempelhof’

Analogue Attic Recordings founders speak to me with their intelligent and ever considerate house tunes. These guys can soundtrack all moods and this track is a go to for playback. Love the guys when they set up for a live session, there can be some serious heat when push comes to shove. The buzzing fly is genius also.”

Luke Howard – ‘The Main Sequence’

Luke Howard‘s record Two Places is an immense pairing of electronic and classical instruments which brings clarity to so many moments, turning and weaving in dynamics. The opening track hits the nostalgia right in the gut and a highlight track for me.”

Friendships – ‘Footscray 1989’

“Knowing the beautiful duo of Nic and Mish for quite some time, hearing them play this live was an immense curve-ball that gave me some serious goosebumps. It is the ultimate juxtaposition for them sonically but soooo Friendships… molto bene.”

Corin – ‘Void’

“Excited and intrigued are the notions that CORIN installs with this track off her recent album. When I first heard CORIN, I was on the edge of my seat. Void makes me feel the Sega Mortal Kombat Trilogy memories so hard.”
