The Putbacks - The Ways (with Bilal)     Funk/Soul, Retro, Psychedelic, Soul 28/09/2018
The Putbacks are a rhythm section. Drums, bass, guitar, keyboards and percussion. Stone cold pros, grizzled veterans of all the tours and all the studios.
The Putbacks & Bilal bring you a dark, dirty post-soul post-jazz mystery-cinema freakout dominated by screaming electric guitar and Bilal’s husky stream of consciousness lyrics. Produced by Paul Bender (Hiatus Kaiyote), The Ways is a hard-hitting, abstract journey into an alternate reality where The Meters specialised in Sci-Fi soundtrack art and Dick Dale played guitar on Madlib records.

For over a decade, San Lazaro have been playing and writing original Latin music in Melbourne. A tribe of lost Latinos, cobbled together from all over the Spanish speaking world.
Blending the futuristic and the classic, Cy Gorman’s remix of San Lazaro’s sultry ballad Ladridos is a mesmerizing meeting of two worlds. A a dark, sparse and completely analogue tango ballad twisted into a deeply bent piece of
symphonic electronica, synthesizing elements of cumbia, deep house and dub.

The Bombay Royale - I Love You Love You     World, Psychedelic, Rock, Soul 07/07/2017
The Bombay Royale are a world conquering cult band hailing from Melbourne Australia.
Angular synthesisers, gated snare and riffing sitar. ‘I Love You Love You’ is vintage Bollywood injected with 80's influences like Bowie, Talking Heads and Wire. At once a lovers’ duet and more subtly a protest about the bureaucratisation and automation that impinges on every aspect of modern life, love included.

Melbourne based Soul/Jazz/Blues. Brought to you buy the purveyors of the finest radioactive gospel. The Meltdown. Featuring the iridescent Simon Burke.
Howling organ, brooding guitars and soaring backing-vocals bring a dark tension to the track and the anguished lead vocal asks why the things we want most are the things we need the least. Hunting, needing and chasing your deepest desires into the dark, you want to escape into the abyss.

The Cactus Channel & Sam Cromack - Sorry Hills     Funk/Soul, Rock, Pop, RnB 08/02/2017
Until recently, The Cactus Channel were easily introduced as integral members of the Soul-music scene in Melbourne. Well-known for their musicianship and compositional skills fundamental to making compelling instrumental music.
The first track of this collaborative EP treads a thin line between alt-soul and the best of indie pop, swimming in compelling atmospherics and deftly weaving Cromack’s rich, drawling vocal and disarming, meditative lyrics through the band’s typically intuitive arrangements.

Zillanova - The Glasgow Coma Scale     Funk/Soul, RnB, Pop 20/01/2017
A charismatic mixed bag of Alabama Shakes, Donny Hathaway and a bit of Leon Bridges, Zillanova, now with Joshua Tavares in the lead, is the new hot soul act.
'The Glasgow Coma Scale' is a bouncy piece of guitar driven melodic soul with a strong Gospel influence.

Other tracks by Zillanova:  The Fader  -  Let's Break Up Again
The Meltdown - Colours In The Sky     Funk/Soul, Soul, Country 09/11/2016
The Meltdown. It’s a bold, brassy, twangy steam train of bumping backbeats and swinging shuffles. Then there’s that voice. Sweet as honey.
From a band known for heavy dancefloor soul, Colours In The Sky marks a change - a piece of downtempo country soul evoking big skies and long roads. This finds Simon Burke’s honeyed voice at it’s most sensitive. Shades of Otis and Sam Cooke on a twangy southern tip.

Leisure Centre - Indecisive     Funk/Soul, Hip Hop, Electronic, Soul 16/08/2016
Leisure Centre, sensual slow jams and bumping future soul.
'Indecisive' has the infectious/lip pouting effect that hits you hard in the guts. More elements of funk & soul that their last single while still making good use of pumping hip hop drums. Heavy!!

Leisure Centre - One Plus One     Funk/Soul, RnB, Soul, Hip Hop 14/07/2016
Leisure Centre is the brainchild of drummer and singer Hugh Rabinovici. A collection of sensual slow jams and bumping future soul dominated by rich, four-voice harmonies.
One Plus One is equal parts performance and programming, drawing from a broad palette of live instruments and electronic sounds.The guitar sound is classic soul but the plethora of synthesizers and 808 kick drums is definitely not, nodding equally to Vangelis or Hiatus Kaiyote.
