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.”
