Young Hysteria - Never Gonna Learn     Pop, Soul 03/11/2016
Musically diverse and otherworldly, Young Hysteria produces music that's cinematic — a love letter to the history of pop music, written from the lineages of dream pop, electronica and lo-fi.
“Never Gonna Learn” is that rare song that relaxes you, causes you to lose your breath momentarily, and transports you to another place. Beautiful and brilliant." — The Revue.

Lonelyspeck - All My Skin on the Air     Electronic, Pop, Soul, Experimental 03/11/2016
Lonelyspeck is a bedroom producer / vocalist / songwriter from Adelaide who creates every element of their music on their own, fusing R&B and bass music, pop hooks and noise.
The track is an unexpectedly hooky piece of alternative-pop, drawing melodic inspiration from commercial radio as much as from bass music.

"The concept behind the track is that I want to be exposed and not hide my feelings even if they're awkward or seemingly trivial."
