The Kite String Tangle
The Kite String Tangle - the self-titled debut album - was produced over a three-year period and saw the bedroom producer move his recording process into a studio with live drums, strings, horns and more. Written, performed and self-produced, the album is mixed by Grammy Award Winning Engineer Eric J Dubowsky (Flume, Flight Facilities, SAFIA) and features include elusive artist and I OH YOU signee Montgomery.
The triple threat producer, vocalist and songwriter made waves with his single 'Given The Chance', a track that reached Gold status in Australia, 'Arcadia', 'Stone Cold' and 'What If' followed; tracks that by now - are ubiquitous to the Australian music landscape. Alongside sold-out national headline shows, celebrated festival appearances including Splendour In The Grass, Falls Festival and Groovin the Moo, The Kite String Tangle landed in the Top 20 of both the 2013 & 2014 triple j Hottest 100's. A series of sold out shows on his co-headline tour with Dustin Tebbutt followed, celebrating the release of their collaborative Illuminate EP. Outside of Australia, he's made waves across North America, UK and Japan, with headline shows and festival appearances including SXSW, Coachella (with Adventure Club), CMJ and Taico Festival (Japan).
Debut self-titled album - OUT NOW
BOO Seeka's synths and beats keeps the energy sizzling like a neon sign on the Miami strip. The Sydney hip-hop-psych-soul project begun an outlet for a couple of musical experiments, a testing ground for new sounds. And it's growing, multiplying and producing delicious sounds.
To date, Boo Seeka has accumulated over 10 million Spotify streams and dominated national airwaves with singles like'Oh My', 'Deception Bay', 'Fool' and their 2015 debut single, 'Kingdom Leader', which peaked at #6 on the Australian iTunes Electronic chart, and was premiered and featured as Song of the Week on HillyDilly.com. The track made blog and radio waves abroad with features on The Music Ninja and LaBelle Musique and received airplay on KCRW (California), and on XFM in the UK. Boo also managed to reach #50 in Triple j's 2015 Hottest 100 with 'Deception Bay' and snagged a J Award nomination for Unearthed Artist of the Year in 2015.
A combination of pulsating synth sounds that bed down layered textures of electronic bass and percussive beats. Influenced by the layerings and experimental beats of Major Lazer, the cool swagger of J-Dilla and The Seed 2.0's Cody Chestnutt's soulful vocal delivery. BOO SEEKA snaps up melodies and bounces them off hip-hop/R&B driven grooves and beats that vibe.
Wafia, Brisbane-based 24-year-old former pre-med student has found that music gives her mind a chance to relax, to not overthink. But that scientific penchant for pattern and physical observation feeds Wafia's music in all the right ways. Her latest collection of songs, VIII, ups the ante on the dynamic from her 2015 EP XXIX, peeling back some of the thickened arrangements and keeping only what's essential. Wafia's thoughtful, imaginative pop that feels bold and opulent without relying on shallow bells and whistles. Instead, it hits in places much deeper. Wafia's elegant, vaporous voice is as penetrating as a diamond bullet. Her songs have found champions in music heavyweights like Pharrell and collaborators like Ben Abraham, Finneas and Tak-ku.
Her tracks, like "Bodies" from her forthcoming VIII EP with its '80s-nodding beat and uptight snaps, are often dance floor siren songs. It's big pop: triumphant, thunderous and crystalline. But dare to dig a touch deeper and one will find something more at stake, something more sweeping. Wafia, born Wafia Al-Rikabi and of Iraqi and Syrian heritage, has personally felt the political tensions of our modern era. She brings it all to the fore in her powerful, boundless music.
Operating under the moniker KLP, Sydney based artist Kristy Lee Peters has gained notoriety as a producer, songwriter, vocalist, DJ and radio host, amassing much deserved national and international attention.
Whether it's through hosting triple j's House Party each Saturday night, writing her own solo music or co-writing with numerous other artists, chances are you've listened to a KLP track before. With her numerous local and international collaborations, topping Hype Machine at #1 as well claiming the #1 position in Japan's Electronic Chart, KLP is also a well known songwriter as well as a solo artist.
Amassing a huge 14 million plays for her work on Soundcloud alone, KLP has gained a reputation as a stellar vocalist and performer. Working with industry talents such as Skrillex, What So Not, Slumberjack, Young Franco, SACHI, Terace, Goldfields, Zimmer, Crayon, Satin Jackets and many more, KLP is one of Australia's most in demand artists.
KLP has had great success with her solo work, her hit single 'Recover' feat. Remi was highly rotated for over 6 months on triple j and streamed over half a million times on Spotify alone. Her 2016 EP 'Ember' was filled with dance driven jams, including her single 'Back in the Room' which was awarded UK Pop Justice 'Track of the Week' and 'Ember' which recently ticked over 1.25
million plays on Spotify. Recently KLP co-wrote and featured on Slumberjack's new EP released through Mad Decent on their club track 'Take Me'.
From multiple national tours to stellar releases and high-profile collaborations with everyone from Skrillex to What So Not to REMI - in addition to her wellloved role as triple j House Party host - it's no wonder she's been titled by InTheMix as 'one of the electronic musicians running Australia's new golden age of music'.
Arising from the darker and grimier side of the Sydney bass scene, Moonbase is a producer who has begun to chisel a strong presence and sound that stands between the worlds of hip-hop, juke and beats. Bringing live shows back to life, Moonbase's sets are unrelenting displays of energetic movement, light and sound - a sight that blends effortlessly with his futuristic beats.

After arriving home from a short, Aussie tour presented by VICE's music channel Noisey, Moonbase has just publicly revealed groundbreaking new work with New York rappers, Cakes Da Killa and Jay Boogie. Forging strong sounds with fellow rising stars of the rap game, Moonbase is currently working away on a plethora of new material which is set to drop sooner rather than later - all whilst continually playing his signature live sets around Australia and broadcasting his sound to the world.
