    Alex Preston Curates Soundtrack For An Epic Friday Night In New Ep

    P5190796.pngWith 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)!

     

    Continuing to push his eclectic new style and sound, check out Alex Preston’s new EP Friday Night OUT NOW on Basement Sound!

      Purple Disco Machine has unveiled the slick new visual for his hit single ‘Body Funk’.
       
      Directed by Nicole Alexander, the innovative video for ‘Body Funk’ features a gradually growing assortment of purple dancers coming together for a tightly choreographed dance-off in a futuristic warehouse.
       
      Following the release of the Carl Cox remix, also being released today is the remix from rising star and Sweat It Out label brother Dom Dolla - whose recent single ‘Take It’ has catapulted his success, hitting #1 on Beatport and topping the Shazam charts across Europe.
       
      Since the release of ‘Body Funk’, the single has garnered over 12 million streams and has been supported by the likes of Black Madonna, Jamie Jones and Fatboy Slim. The single has spent a second week #1 on the BBC Radio 1 Dance Chart and is continuing to get multiple plays across the R1 dance music family including Danny Howard, Pete Tong, MistaJam and Annie Mac - who crowned the track her ‘Hottest Record In The World’.
       
      With remixes under his belt for Calvin Harris, Fatboy Slim, Weiss and Shakedown, Dresden-born producer Purple Disco Machine has become one of the decade’s most notable producers. 2018 saw him achieve an impressive feat on Beatport where four of his productions each secured a top 3 position.
       
      Having enjoyed a stellar 2018, Dresden born disco-house producer Purple Disco Machine is quickly becoming one of the most prolific and sought after producers in the industry. Having recently remixed Calvin Harris, Fatboy Slim, Weiss and Jax Jones, he has also been named as Beatport’s #2 artist of all time.
       
      Complete with an compelling and inventive narrative, the video for ‘Body Funk’, plus remixes from Carl Cox and Dom Dolla are out now, with a Claptone remix due next Friday 12th April.

      Yolanda Be Cool know how to hit us in the heartstrings. You’d think the delivery of the glorious ‘Dance and Chant’ to start the year would be enough for our little souls, but here they are to spoil us yet again, with the announce of an epic 6 track remix package for our beloved nu-disco delight. Maybe it’s all the love in the air as we write this mid February, but our boys really do treat us well. With the original sitting on top of the ARIA Club Chart for a solid 5 weeks and counting, we can say these ones are officially tried, tested and certified.
       
      Always the life of the party, and ones to pull a crowd, Yolanda Be Cool have enlisted the help of their nearest and dearest to add their own unique flavours to the mix. First up, our German Queen Lookee, already getting spins across triple j with her remix, getting a bit deeper on the original, focusing on that four-on-the-floor disco beat. Head of Clarisse records, Mendo delivers a VIP and Redmix - transforming the tune into a late night house mix, adding his own eccentric twist with unique saxophone treatments. Lord of lords, DJ Glen, delivers a remix that is somehow the exact auditory version of the ‘Dance and Chant’ release artwork, almost as if from an intro of a sci-fi film, he brings in the bass for his super refined tech house vibes. Tommie Sunshine & SLATIN surpass their own reputation, delivering a remix that is instantly bright and sassy. Perfect for a summers day on Sydney harbour, upping that daytime energy in the breakdown. The acclaimed French nu-disco producer, Mark Lower, utilises sharp and bright beats before transitioning to one of the more laidback and cruisy remixes after the breakdown, whilst homegrown Generik’s mix instantly erupts with energy, transforming the tune into a cheeky mid set stunner.
       
      Yolanda Be Cool have delivered the goods time and time again with multiple international successes over the years including the diamond selling hit ‘We No Speak Americano’, along with ‘Sugar Man’, ‘From Me To You’, and ‘Soul Makossa’. All of which has lead to #1s in over 20 countries, 3 Beatport #1s and a tonne of platinum records throughout Germany, UK and Australia. A duo that continue to work so hard, they will play gigs in Brazil one day, and then back in Sydney the very next. Showing no signs of slowing down, Yolanda Be Cool, are set to play a tonne of shows over the Australian summer before moving on to Asia, Europe, capping it all off back in America.

      Following the single release of Amateurs, Sleepy Tom gets set to release the Amateurs EP. To celebrate his awaited body of work, a retro style video game has launched alongside fellow EP collaborator Lights, treating fans to a unique and immersive musical experience. 
       
      Leaving his familiar dance surroundings, the Amateurs EP sees Sleepy Tom experiment and delve into sophisticated pop territories. With his talented co-artists Lights, Sophia Black, Parker Bossley, Steve Bays and Blonde Diamond allowing for a more musical and collaborative effort, Sleepy Tom finds new levels of inspiration whilst weaving in synth lead melodies influenced by the electronic music that initially propelled him into the spotlight. Having fine-tuned the EP to perfection, Sleepy Tom explains:
       
      “There’s so much cross-pollination going on in music right now, and I think that’s where the excitement is. I want to explore pop song structures, more real instruments, more hooks to create a more accessible and intimate experience for people listening” Meanwhile, the accompanying video game draws on that intimate experience Sleepy Tom speaks so fondly of, producing an arcade skating game around lead EP track Amateurs, set to resonate with fans beyond the music as he and Lights aim to achieve a high score fighting various bosses.

      Having released music on influential labels like Fools Gold and Mad Decent, whilst working with the likes of Zeds Dead, Porter Robinson, and Martin Solveig for official remixes (his remix of Intoxicated surpassed an impressive 7 million streams) Sleepy Tom’s rise has been hard to ignore. His originals have dominated charts including hit single Be Right There alongside powerhouse producer Diplo reaching no.2 overall in the UK. Now sitting firmly in his own lane, Sleepy Tom is no longer following anyone’s else’s rulebook, only the one he’s writing for himself and this chapter is seriously compelling. 
       

      Sleepy Tom – Amateurs EP is out now via eOne.

      Since breaking out in 2015, Odd Mob has had a musical evolution like no other. The moniker of Brisbane producer Harry Hope, the project has grown and developed into one of the most respective electronic acts, not only amongst fans, but also amongst his peers. Announcing today the release of his long awaited debut album, Odd Mob releases the very first instalment with the genre bending single ‘All Of Your Heart’. Mesmerising in both charisma and production, the single is a testament to Harry’s creative vision, and his continued ability to create dynamic productions whilst forging his own path stylistically.
       
      Meshing dreamy pop vocals of the talented Jordan Leser, together with a nuanced bassline, ‘All Of Your Heart’ is a clear standout from Harry’s previous works. Giving insight on how the track came together, Harry explains “‘All Of Your Heart’ started as quite a melancholic tune, but then I had the idea to simply pitch them up six semitones. What resulted was a burst of pop-euphoria. I instantly decided to change the chords and the basis of the tune was formed.”
       
      Co-written by Alexander Burnett (the famed songwriter/producer known for collaborations with major artists including DJ Snake, Hayden James, Flight Facilities, Elderbrook and more), it comes as no surprise, that the lyrics and messaging behind the song are just as intoxicating as the production. Describing his own take on the lyrics, Harry further explains, “The part of the verse got stuck in my head  was "give me all your heart". I really think many people these days are quite reluctant to give somebody their everything. Social media gives us so many false options. Loving somebody with everything you have is the most rewarding experience you can have.”
       
      Whilst it was the hit single ‘Is It A Banger?’ that catapulted Odd Mob into the mainstream and triple j’s Hottest 100, Harry has always produced a wide range of electronic music. With a string of original works including; ‘Down For Love’ which had huge triple j support, ‘Into You feat. Starley’ becoming a 2017 club anthem holding the #1 position on the ARIA club chart for seven straight weeks, and ‘Intrinsic’ which bookmarked a turning point in production for Odd Mob with support pouring in from all corners of the globe from the likes of Martin Garrix, David Guetta, Don Diablo and JAUZ to name a few. Never downplaying his club roots, Harry has continued to develop various singles, an EP, and an entire ‘Oddities’ brand to experiment with various elements of his highly skilled production. A shining example of his club work, was the release of the electro house thumper ‘Gassed Up’, quickly catching the attention of DJ Snake and Jauz, transforming the tune into a festival anthem the world over. And with further remixes for the likes of A-Trak, Motez, Starley, POOLCLVB,  and Lorde, it is clear that he is at the top of his game.
       
      Taking on his first headline tour of Australia in 2018, Harry played a string of intimate venues across the country to explore and develop songs for his forthcoming debut album, with the tour aptly titled ‘Testing Grounds’. Having been recently signed to APA (alongside of roster of 50 Cent, Tyga, Azealia Banks) Odd Mob is ready to take his music global, with his first run of dates in North America to be announced later this year.
       
      ‘All Of Your Heart’ is out now on Tinted Records, in conjunction with Spinnin, Parlophone/FFRR and Kontor Records.
