      GALLEON: So guys, thanks so much for sitting down with me to talk about all things Musika! Tell us about how you began working with each other and the name Yolanda Be Cool?
      YBC: Sure no worries, our pleasure. Matty used to DJ at a bar I used to bartend at. I used to take him tequila shots and talk his ear off about music and djaying. Before long I was buying records and we started playing back to back at clubs all over Sydney then Australia. Then naturally we started making mix tapes and bootlegs together, then before long we ended up doing official remixes then finally releasing our own original singles.
      The name comes from one of our favourite scenes from one of our favourite movies.. Pulp Fiction…   “Be Cool Honey Bunny” “Tell that bitch to be cool”.. YOLANDA BE COOL...
      GALLEON: On your new jam Musika, you feature the vocals of Kwanzaa Posse. Who are they and how did you get to colaborate with them.
      YBC: We are always on the hunt for killer tracks to sample. On one of our sample hunts we came across Kwanzaa Posse out of Africa and their tune Musika had an amazing vocal part that really stood out to us. So we got to work on a version and sent it to their publisher to approve. They loved it so much they were happy to be featured artists on the single. We were stoked.
      GALLEON: Looking to the hot remix package for Musika, you have chosen some wicked artists such as Babert, GotSome, Flash89 & Dateless to put their touch to the record. How did you choose these artists?
      YBC: We were so lucky with this remix package, it was a combination of the legends at Sweat It Out calling in a lot of favours and I think the track being unique and appealing to remix which allowed us to get such dope names on the package.
      GALLEON: You guys are heavily involved with the running of Sweat It Out. How did you become associated with one of the late Ajax's biggest ventures?
      YBC: We both idolised Ajax, and still think he is the best DJ ever. When Sydney didn’t have the lock out laws we used to finish work at 2:00am in the bar above then run down and watch Ajax and the Bang Gang play till 6:00am at their weekly party…. We did this for years and then Matt was woking at a record label helping Ajax put together his legendary mashed DJ mix compilations, they got chatting about starting their own label and after a few hot and sweaty laksa’s on hung over Mondays..  'Sweat It Out’  was born. 
      GALLEON: Your music has often featured vibes from Africa and Latin America, giving your records a great uplifting carnival feel. Are world music and other cultures a big influence for you?
      YBC: Most definitely and we don’t discriminate.  We have sampled tunes from Africa, Columbia, Italy, England and Camaroon to name a few countries. We love combing elements and sounds from exotic places and re-contextualising them in a way that makes sense for us and the dance floors we play to.
      GALLEON: What are your biggest 3 records right now.
      YBC: ahhh Our friend did an edit of Raingurl by Yaeji which is so dope… Fisher’s tune STOP IT always kills it. and of course Musika feat Kwanzaa Posse by us:)
      GALLEON: Tell us about the biggest gig you have ever played and why? 
      YBC: The biggest number of people was a free party for the King of Morocco. There was over 100,000 people there. But one of our personal favourite biggest gigs for us was the MTV party @ Amnesia in Ibiza with A-Trak and Armand Van Helden. That was sick

      Rave Radio are back with their new single, Morning Light - a summer House anthem, featuring vocals from MANBN. The Australian DJ duo combine live performance elements with high-octane EDM sets. They are kings of the viral Facebook video, raking in 19 million plays with their top Facebook video, and they’re now establishing themselves as fully fledged artists.
      Rave Radio’s previous single Carry You is on MTV’s daily rotation and peaked at #6 on the Aria Club Chart. Prior to that success, their single Turn Me Out racked up over 3.5m plays on Spotify. It’s clear these guys aren’t messing around! As we look to the future, Rave Radio will continue to dominate stages with the delivery of their incredible live experiences.  Meanwhile, fresh material will build momentum on the key streaming platforms and radio-waves – the future is looking bright!
      Rave Radio layer MANBN’s glorious top line over luscious guitar picking, as the tight percussion builds into a euphoric chorus of funky bass, vocal chops and groovy drums. Morning Light channels the warmth of an uplifting, pacific sunrise. It successfully cements Rave Radio’s position at the fore-front of popular dance music, and does so with pristine execution – the final product is a gem soaked in irresistible flare!
