Club Sweat has been laying dormant for a little while now. Not because we haven't had good enough music to put out, and not because we've been neglecting it. It's because we've been waiting for something to really shine above the rest; something that represents what Club Sweat is at it's very core.
This no nonsense, no frills subsidiary label of Sweat It Out was created as an avenue for us to release music we love without an agenda. No radio play? No online budget? // No problems! Great music stands out above all else.
Cue our boy Frames. Not only is he a seriously talented producer, but also toured the US of A, presented on FBI, and played every noteworthy festival in the country; all the while building his presence and clocking over 100K plays on Soundcloud.
'Slow' is both a throwback and a throw forward. It will remind you of the 2003 version by pop princess Kylie, but it is not like that version. For starters, it's slower, warmer and cooler (yes, that's possible) - but more to the point it's very much equipped to succeed in the world it is set to inhabit. Did someone say slo-mo house?
On remix duties is local Sydney beat-maker Moonbase Commander who takes slow, re-pitches it some more and warps it into the depths of outerspace - well, we like it here.
This über cool record alone isn't enough to get you going? Did we mention the smouldering, pelvis-heavy and sweaty video clip to accompany the track? What about the smooth, downtempo mixtape Frames has also whipped up a for your listening pleasure? Check out all of the above, below.
The first taste of these Melbourne dynamos came through their free remix of the already spectacular 'Sebastian' by Sweat It Out stablemates Caseno. The second appetiser came in the form of their remix of Sinden & Vato Gonzalez's club workout, '$100 Infinate Kung Fu Vixens'. Again, nab it for nix right here.
Now comes the first pair of official originals in 'No Use' and '1.01 My Heart Drops'; the former a slice of of ghetto-styled ragga-funk somewhat akin to the lovechild of Bob Marley x Julio Bashmore and the latter a piece of slowed down chill-wave dope goodness. The good news? You can get your mitts on both jams right here.
Stay tuned for more music from these guys, as well as upcoming tour info. Shazam!

'Sebastian' was the best kept secret we had here at Sweat It Out last year and it's hard to convey just how exciting it is to unleash this track into to world!
Melbournites Harris Robotis and Riccardo Sciarpa first came together as Caseno mid last year, but it was likely your first taste of the duo didn't come until they dropped a free remix of PARACHUTE YOUTH's latest single 'Count To Ten' which encountered a huge response. This time the boys have gone a step further.
From the first listen of Sebastian, you'll immediately understand that this is something truly special. It's a dark tropical fruit punch not too sweet, and just enough boozey vox to get you loaded and do the secretary dance.
Caseno is that name, and we finally have something to give you. The lads have taken to the already stellar Parachute Youth tune 'Count To Ten' (which you can buy here) and given it the real Caseno treatment.
Oh... And be sure to keep an eye out for the debut single 'Sebastian' which we'll be releasing into the world over the next few weeks.
