      Continuing our artist of the week series, we would like to introduce you to Frisson Records' artist Lifestream
       
      Artist Name: Lifestream 
      Label: Nil
       
      Tell us about yourself
      Solar-powered house enthusiast passionate about bringing underground and emotive sounds to scene. 

      What genre/styles do you play?
      House/Tech House/Techno 
       
      Your specific genre of music?
      Tech House 
       
      Where are you from?
      Toowoomba 
       
      Where are you now?
      Brisbane 
       

      What got you into the scene/dj’ing/producing?
      I really fell in love with the house/deep house sound when I first started hearing it out in clubs around 2012 and just began clubbing regularly since that time. I remember purchasing a dj controller online and playing around with it in my bedroom several years ago now. Ever sicne that time my interest in DJing began. I eventually downloaded Ableton and did a little bit of producing at home but nothing too serious. Things really began to take form when I entered the YOURSHOT international DJ competition in 2017 and placed as runner up on my stage. Shortly after the competition I had my first club set at one of the biggest clubs in Brisbane “The Met” and supported Bag Raiders amongst other international artists. 

      Who has influenced you musically? 
      After attending the infamous nightclub Revolver in Melbourne it really influenced and changed the direction of my sound. I have had a massive influence from many Melbourne DJ’s including Brian Fantana, Boogs, Spacey Space and Jordan Brando to name a few. 

      What are you currently working on?
      Was very happy to put out my debut single “I Gotta Know” last month which had a fantastic response. I am currently working on several projects which will be seeing the light of day very soon. 

      What can we expect in the future from Lifestream?
      Strive to provide listeners with the best experience possible by creating memorable sets, tunes and moments. 
       
      Who have you enjoyed working with/hated the most?
      I have had the pleasure with working with the guys at Frisson Records/Eden. They put on absolutely fantastic events and I have been able to play at their last 2 label parties in Brisbane which have both blown away my expectations. 
       

       
      What’s your day job?
      I work on the clinical team at headspace (National Youth Mental Health Foundation), primarily doing assessments, screening and case management. I’m also doing some Postgraduate studies which keeps me busy. 

      What do you listen to in your downtime? 
      I listen to such a variety of music in my spare time; a lot of metal, house, triple J amongst others. 

      What do you think of the Brisbane scene?
      I think the Brisbane House and Techno music scene has gone from strength to strength over the past 2 years. Venues like Capulet and events like Syndrome, Eden, Dragonfruit have all blown up in popularity over the past several months which has really shown the appetite for more underground house and techno sounds in the Brisbane music scene and how popular it is becoming. Very excited for the future of the Brisbane house and techno music scene.

      Well, here is a new mix from me: something compiled, executed and delivered, just because...
       

      Since we kicked off our  Hello guest! Please register or sign in to view the hidden content.  project last year; the vast majority of my DJ'ing has been centred around a housier, disco-centric sound—for which Attic is known—for both, our own events and other ad hoc DJ bookings in around town.

      Of course, we love our Attic sound, however; during this last little while—somewhat regrettably—I've not had much of an opportunity to sit back and relish in some other musical guilty pleasures. This particular line-up of deeper, melodic selections has allowed me to do just that. This is a very much an indulgent mix—let's make no mistake about that.

      Within, you'll hear some newer pieces; you'll hear some that I had stashed away for such an opportunity. Each track has moved me or has made me feel something.

      It's melodic, it's moody and if I've done my job correctly; you'll be taken on a journey for next 80 minutes or so.

      I really hope you dig this one.

      With the success of his new sound in his Get It Started EP Alex Preston continues to take us on a glorious journey of infectious grooves and driving beats in his new Friday Night EP, out now on Basement Sound.
       
      Alex kicks off the EP with title track Friday Night, a bass stomping gem that features Alex Preston’s organic guitar riffs and vocal chops that make for the ideal disco-tinged jam. Next up is Hip Shakin’ Mumma, (that will find you shaking your hips for sure) with its playful key stabs, soaring strings and guitar solos that are accompanied by a toe-tapping vocal. Drawing the sun-soaked EP to a close is Don’t You Mind featuring a jacking guitar lead and shuffling beats making the Friday Night EP the perfect soundtrack to your funk-filled night out.
       
      Speaking on the release Alex tells us: “I’m really stoked with how my “Friday Night” EP turned out. When I was putting the EP together, I wanted to have 3 club tracks that embodied what I love about house music. I wanted each track to have a different feel but I also wanted to be able to play them in my live show and have them work together.”
       
      Shut away in the studio for months, Alex Preston created his own style of disco infused underground house featuring his live guitar and percussion. Along with the sound re-invention, this year sees Alex Preston announce his new live show where elements used in his productions will make a live appearance to support his new style and releases. Expect live guitar licks, cosmic basslines and warm pulsating house beats as the multi-talented artist brings his productions to life. To celebrate the Friday Night EP release, Basement Sound will be hosting Alex's Friday EP Launch at their first “Basement Beach” party at Sydney’s iconic Manly Beach on the 27th July - Basement Beach 001 feat. Alex Preston (Live) at BRKLYN (Sugar Lounge Basement)!

      Artist Name: King Friendly
      Label: Independent
       
      Tell us about yourself
       
      I’m on the dance floor as often as I am producing music and DJing, I love everything about electronic music and really want to spread the positivity and inclusiveness that comes with it!
       
      What genre/styles do you play?
       
      Progressive House predominantly but also play a lot of Tech House and House. Anything with a good groove usually gets played in my sets.
       
      What got you into the scene/dj’ing/producing?
       
      Attending Tomorrowland Belgium in 2012. It showed me the power of electronic music and how it can bring people from all over the world closer together. I was already interested in electronic music but this experience made me really want to pursue it.

      Check out Tom's U-Tube channel  Here
        Who has influenced you musically?  
      I really started getting into electronic music through Avicii and Skrillex. Since then a whole bunch of artists like; Axwell, Eric Prydz, Deadmau5, Steve Angello, Camelphat, Kryder and many others have influenced my musical tastes.
       
      What are you currently working on? 

      I’m working on incorporating more live elements to my productions, finishing up my Audio Engineering Degree as well as continuing to make videos to my youtube channel! I have some projects that are nearing completion and they will be up on youtube in the coming months as I get a bit better at video editing haha.
       
      Tell us about your most recent gigs?
       
      The Frisson Records Label Party in Brisbane was fantastic recently! Was great to in Brisbane and my next gig will be at the Beehive event in Sydney!
       
      What can we expect from the future for King Friendly?
       
      I want to continue to develop my production skills and continue to DJ to anyone and everyone! I would love to help show the generosity of the dance music community throughout my career and use it to create a fairer world for all.
       
      What do people say about you?
       
      I really pride myself in getting positive feedback from my DJ sets and try and go the extra step to research any event I play to ensure I have music that suits the venue as well as my set time. Whether it’s a smooth warm up set or high-energy headlining set I always try and play the best set to fit the vibe of the night.
       
      Who have you enjoyed working with/hated the most?
       
      I have been producing recently with OSKA from Sydney and it has been great to work on tracks with someone in the same location as me! As far as hating working with anyone, I haven’t, differences can makes life pretty interesting and if it’s not working out I just get through the project best I can and move on.
       
      What’s your day job?
       
      Corporate Audio Visual Technician but occasionally Barista and Bartend as well.
       
      What do you listen to in your downtime?  
       
      Anything, I love it all. From Classical to hardstyle I often end up in some interesting youtube rabbit holes of music.
       
      What do you think about the Brisbane scene?
       
      I was up for the weekend recently and had an absolute ball! There are still lots of great nights out in Sydney where I’m from but it definitely has a more relaxed feel in other cities. I
      think that is really important for a decent clubbing culture to develop and be sustained.

      OzClubbers talks to Scottie Chappell about the origins of the IWTFA brand and pushing the boundaries of Techno here in Brisbane.
      The IWTFA crew is made up of Scottie Chappell, Aamir Raza, Jamie Grenenger, Pete Trimbacher & Rob Glasgow.
      Tell us about how IWTFA came about?
      I came to Australia on a 2 year working visa from Newcastle up on Tyne in England. During this time I called Brisbane home. I worked and attended events and met alot of great people from local house and techno DJs to promoters from all over Brisbane. This helped me begin to get involved in the Brisbane scene and I began having ideas about what would add to the ever-growing techno and house scene here.
      I met the crew around 2 or 3 years ago at various techno and house events. I’d watch them play and we'd chat at gigs. We all had the same interests in music and the same vision of what we wanted to do so we decided to form the brand.
      In the months prior to launching IWTFA, I went to many techno events in Melbourne: Machine, Bunker, Plexus, Melbourne Techno Collective, Cat House & experimental events like Factoid and Doppler. They all had incredible local, interstate and international artists and I saw how far techno was being pushed. This helped give us a vision of what we wanted to see in Brisbane.
      Thoughts on the Brisbane Scene Today?
      I think the Brisbane scene is doing well. There are so many great brands that push all spectrums of Techno & House such as Subtrakt, Andromeda, Shade, Unison, Buxton, Higher State, BTHC, Dragonfruit, Oxytocin, Flux, Melt, Pray Tell, La Vibrations, Lola, Bless Club and Bass Swag. One of the reasons things work well here is that there’s a promoters group so we can try to avoid clashes and support each other as we try to schedule events.
      However, it’s becoming harder with venue limitations here to push specific sounds as many venues only want to play commercial music. This scene has great potential so i think it’s really important for a decent clubbing culture to developed and be sustained. With many other brands in the scene, we wanted to do techno events that focus on and push specific sounds.
      We want to push the boundaries of techno...

      We focus on lighting and visuals for a real mood setting vibe no matter which venue we use and we have a specific flow in mind of how our events should run.
      We always have our local techno DJs on our lineups and we show our full support of them and even new artists that want to push themselves, we like to think we give these people a chance.
      At the time of launching IWTFA, we also began a podcast series on Soundcloud. Listen here.
      It’s a Brisbane collective aiming to produce sophisticated, refined techno that exposes local, interstate and international artists. We try to showcase these artists in their true form and let them express themselves with no boundaries in the field of techno.
