Tracks

Sort by: Date Artist
The Brow - Circles     Hip Hop, Funk, Soul, Pop 10/10/2016
The Brow is a high-energy brass n’ beats party band that play genre-defying, dance-demanding hip hop music.
The result of 'Circles' is a cool slice of world weariness combined with a steel resolve; Hart’s sultry lead vocals complemented by Ndore and Rogue Scholar’s matter-of-fact rhymes before the boys-in-brass take the song – and indeed The Brow – to eagerly-awaited new heights.

Dan Sultan - Magnetic     Rock, Soul, Pop 06/10/2016
Dan Sultan is a critically acclaimed indigenous Australian singer-songwriter from Melbourne.
A piano flutters, and a string section swells from the delicate melody. Then a choir of voices bursts forth: “God, help me!” So begins Dan Sultan’s new single, ‘Magnetic’. A fierce attack of soul-pop, as interested in delivering unfiltered emotion as it is a charging chorus.

Natural Selections is the breathtakingly refreshing EP from producer, Sampology. A torchbearer for collaborative inspiration, Sampology’s passion for extracting emerging talent from the Brisbane’s Soul/Electronic scene shines with Natural Selections.
This track sounds like it’s got loads of samples in it, but everything except for the bird sounds Sampology recorded himself, even the drum kit sounds. The backbone of the track is a kalimba Sampology layered in with different interweaving polyrhythms.

N.T. raised rapper, Birdz has been hard at work solidifying his spot as one of the most exciting Hip Hop acts to come out of Australia.

Searing, direct and impossibly tight, 'Inside Out' is a sonic melting pot.
