After playing an impressive list of Australian festivals, including Groovin The Moo and Come Together, Perth MC Drapht is back with new single "Mexico"
"Mexico”, pairs Drapht with dead-set legends Dune Rats in one of the best sing-along anthems of the year. Drapht-plus-Dunies is as killer as you'd expect and “Mexico” brings a welcome glimpse of summer to the cold heart of winter.

Gawurra - Burala     Electronic, World, Australian Indigenous, Ambience 07/06/2016
Gawurra was born in East Arnhem Land. As a child he spent time on his grandma’s land at Yathalamara. Culture, songlines & family history are embedded in his soulful music.
In Rolling Stone Magazine’s 4.5 out of 5 star review this month, they deemed the production on this stunning debut album to be “faultless”. Burala is the perfect track to showcase the album’s more electronic almost ambient aspect. Think post Nordic rock vibes and a wide open road.
