    Basenji and Tkay Maidza just came through with one of the best tracks of 2017

    Sign in to follow this  

    Hats off to Basenji, who’s quietly been releasing some of 2017’s best local dance music. After last year’s change of pace ‘Chroma’, the Sydney producer returned in August with the Mereki collaboration ‘Don’t Let Go’ — and now he’s shared another very, very good single.

    For his latest, Basenji has teamed up with local treasure Tkay Maidza on ‘Mistakes’, which is out today after being premiered on triple j last week.

    It follows a big year for Maidza — since the release of her self-titled debut album last year, Tkay has teamed up with M-Phazes and Ish DARR on ‘Don’t Even Know’, supported RL Grime on his Australian tour and had her track ‘Glorious’ featured on a little TV show called Girls, after being hand-picked by Lena Dunham herself.

    Listen to ‘Mistakes’ below; it’s out now via Future Classic.

      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.

      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.

      In a most welcome manifestation of the gradual societal and industry change regarding equality, this morning ARIA released the weekly club chart, topped by Sydney producer Beth Yen; the first solo female artist to achieve #1 since 2012. Also making her the fourth solo female artist to achieve this in ARIA chart history, following on from Helena with ‘Girl From The Sky’ - topping the chart for two consecutive weeks, and two other Australian females, Zoe Badwi with ‘Release Me’, and Sarah McCleod with ‘He Doesn’t Love You'.
       
      Not only competing with local producers for the top position, Beth Yen knocked an international artist off the top spot - arguably the most prolific producer of the last few years, Scottish superstar Calvin Harris with his hit single ‘Giant feat. Rag'n'Bone Man’. Only a few weeks out from the original release, Beth Yen’s single ‘Ocean’ debuted at #25, jumping up the chart with a stellar remix pack from Friendless, Buried King, Marcus Knight, Scott Diaz, and Ozclubbers' own @Adam Madd, reaching #1 today, and in turn making the history books.
       
      In one of the most serendipitous of occasions, the single was released by Hot Sunday Records just four weeks ago, on International Women’s Day. A shining example of the renowned Sydney’s DJ catalogue, Beth has taken inspiration from her years spent living and working as a DJ in Ibiza. For the release of ‘Ocean’, collaborating with Australian lyricist The Baroness, a regular vocalist of live shows with Peking Duk, and previously Flight Facilities. The song itself is about the ups and downs and life, and how people can draw you in and out much like the ocean. It is a rare find for dance music to be written with so much meaning and purpose, which has evidently resonated with her peers all across the country.
       
      In what is hopefully a sign of the changing times, Beth shared a message of encouragement to her peers, “This is not just a win for me but a win for LGBTIQ+ women and men in the dance music industry. I hope that this inspires anyone, especially women contemplating getting involved in electronic dance music to get out there and find a way just to do it. The music industry is listening and ready for you all.”
       
      Having grown up in the UK, Beth Yen cut her teeth rubbing shoulders with some of the world’s most influential DJs, from the likes of Masters at Work, Dennis Ferrer and Eric Prydz. From the humble underground clubs,  and later progressing to big room shows for Pacha Ibiza, London’s Egg, Sunset Music Festival alongside Avicii, and Sydney’s most prestigious Mardi Gras festival. Always with a finger on the pulse, Beth has produced originals across facets of house, funky, tech and nu-disco, with a genuine passion that is guaranteed to bring her more success stories such as this in the years to come.
