Motez delivers his Promise

April 9th, 2014


Sydney producer Motez has officially arrived and is here to stay.

We are stoked to bring you his debut Sweat It Out release Promise Me, a two track EP that has announced him as a contender for 2014.

The title track Promise Me, is the best of 90′s house piano perfectly juxtaposed with the drums and wavy chords of bass house, while Body Rock is that garagey bass house vibe that’s rocking clubs right now, but the super interesting, well produced and musical version.

With the likes of Justin Martin, Claude Vonstroke, Gorgon City, Joyce Muniz, Bag Raiders and more all giving it their tick of approval and Disclosure inviting him on tour, its no wonder that blogs and radio shows worldwide are jumping aboard the Motez bandwagon.

Promise Me is avaiable now via iTunes and Beatport.

RÜFÜS Summer Sundream comes to life

April 9th, 2014


My favourite song from my favourite album by my favourite band.

Ok, so you could accuse me of being biased, and I am, but i’m telling the truth here. Sundream is the fourth single to be lifted from the highly acclaimed debut album by RÜFÜS. And like them and everything they do, it’s super slick, yet emotive, dancey, yet dreamy, large but yet somehow small at the same time. It’s as home in the boiler room as it is in the car.

Backed by remixes from Claptone (check that groove), our favourite techno cousins Wordlife and our favourite tall man Hayden James, have all taken the interwebs by storm for obvious reasons.

Currently touring the US and Europe, RÜFÜS will home soon to cap off their massive run of dates to bring in 2014.
Tickets available here.

Frames gets tropical with Pacifique EP

April 9th, 2014

Throw away the china, I want Plastic Plates

April 9th, 2014


He might live in the big apple now, but the Sydney-born Felix Bloxsom aka Plastic Plates, just released his Nothing Like You EP via Club Sweat.

Filled with dripping, sizzling synths, light yet driving beats, and smooth sampling techniques the Nothing Like You EP reaches into the silken realms of deep house, future-R&B, and even lightly touches on techno whilst keeping the groove ultimately locked in, Plastic Plates delivers with his uniquely refined brand of house music.

Stash away the china, all you need this season is Plastic Plates.

Available now via  iTunes and Beatport.

Indian Summer, ageing like a fine wine

April 2nd, 2014


Melbourne duo Indian Summer have released their Aged Care EP, the follow-up to Foreign Formula which soared throughout 2013.

Bringing the best of (nu-wave) house, tribal and even a lil indie, the new EP features two new offerings that are seriously infectious.

Pin Tweaks is a great track that showcases some excellent synth work and percussion that will thump through your head for days after your first listen, however Aged Care will really drop your jaw.

Aged Care features the fresh vocals of Benjamin Joseph who you may recognise from Canberra group Safia. With some very quick percussion and chopped vocals, the single has a brand new Indian Summer house infused flavour.

Shoot over to iTunes and Beatport to grab a glass of this sweet vino.

Franskild get your body clock moving

April 2nd, 2014

Clockworks-hires copy

Norwegian friends Franskild are back with their new single Clockworks, combining dreamy with melancholy like only peeps in that part of the world can.

Influenced by the blissful sounds and magnificence of early eighties house music, 90′s french touch, mid-00′s jackin house and contemporary garage, Clockworks is another reason to jump on board this Scandinavian bandwagon.

Backed with a buffet of remixes from RÜFÜS (Du Sol) maestro Jüan Du Sol, the man of the moment Silversix and dark groove lord Riton, Clockworks takes time and turns it on your head.

Do yourself a favour, swing over to iTunes or Beatport and grab yourself a copy.

Go Freek!

Press shot


Frames makes/plays/enjoys music.

Pushing the sounds of warm & grooving handclap disco, hypnotic & intricate hipthrust house and energetic, driving letchairdown-techno, no genre is safe and nothing is taboo as Frames spins and warps his magic over 4-8 minute euphoric gems.

Scouring for only the highest quality of tunes and an uncanny knack for choosing winners has given Frames an edge as both a dj and producer; earning him the attention, acclaim and respect of punters, critics and fellow artists alike.

Subtle percussive hooks, deep house grooves and bright disco vocal flicks are all regular features stamped on Frames’ sets and remixes, combining to create a style that is as varied as it is distinctive.

Calling the sunny shores of Sydney home, Frames hosts a weekly radio show on FBI 94.5fm and has been fortunate enough to spin records at Splendour in the Grass, Future Music Festival, Big Day Out, Laneway Festival and Playground Weekender.
