    [By The Wavs Exclusive] 8 Questions With Tunaki

    Sign in to follow this  

    Tunaki

    We hear from the talented Tunaki this week, as he lets us in on the answers to our exclusive 8 Questions. Be sure to check out this seriously skilled producer…

    1) Who are three of your all-time favourite artists, past or present?

    There’s obviously a lot more then 3 artists who I favour, but if I have to shortlist, then that would definitely be Aphex Twin, Karlheinz Stockhausen and Ennio Morricone.

    2) Is there a particular tune that you have never got sick of?

    I absolutely LOVE Vangelis’s “Memories Of Green.” More recently, Mura Masa’s “Love For That” has been a track that has been stuck in my daily playlist ever since it came out… I love Shura’s vocals on it! I had the chance to meet her, and she’s a true BOSS! Another timeless track would be Squarepusher’s “Beep Street.”

    3) Describe your perfect day…

    Well, that would be spending a productive day at the studio in the summertime. Work hard, get stuff done but also sit outside and get some sun. Then at night have some beers with the mates, or play that track you just finished at a gig and see the crowd go wild…

    4) What would people who know you well say about you in three words?

    Stubborn, determined and creative.

    5) Ideal studio layout…

    I feel I pretty much have the ideal studio layout at my home studio right now. I’ve been blessed with a bunch of cool toys that help define my signature sound. If not, my brain is the biggest instrument; so a laptop, midi-keys, headphones and some software will do just fine!

    6) What is your most valued material possession?

    Next to some of my favourite synths and my car I think the most important thing I own is an old wallet of my grandfather. It reminds me of the fact that if you work hard, deliver quality and are creative, everything is possible and most of the time you are your own biggest obstacle in life.

    7) Is there something musically you would like to do more of next year?

    I’d love to write and produce more for and with other people. Every collaboration I’ve been in has opened many more creative doors for me, every single time. People you work with don’t necessarily have to be big names, lifelong veterans or crazy virtuosos because everybody’s got something to teach if you keep your eyes, ears and heart open. So I guess learn more, experience more, meet more like-minded people and build a cool entourage.

    8) Where do you want to be in 10 years?

    I’d love to be in a position where all aspects of my life still revolve around music. Since it’s a fast changing sector, there are no guarantees. I hope to be evolutive and smart enough to stand the test of time. So I would be very thankful to have the blessing of a musical life.

      Here is our recent set, recorded live at our Attic event at The Flinders a few weeks back, on warm-up duties for Nachtbraker.
       
      Our intention was to get the bodies moving and booties shaking with more rolling, percussive selections from our collective boxes—these actually worked a treat, setting the scene nicely for the expected Nachtbraker destruction! ;)
       
      Hope you enjoy this one!

      Alongside the likes of Paces, Lastlings and CVIRO, Jake Carmody is leading the Gold Coast's musical renaissance and now delivers a crisp new track ‘Alone feat. Savoi’, for his debut release on Tinted Records. For this release, Jake has teamed up with Brisbane singer-songwriter Savoi, who has worked with the likes of Enschway, Yahtzel and most notably LDRU, on his hit track ‘Next To You’. The producers new track uses layers of ethereal and atmospheric sounds to pair with Savoi’s vocals which together build to what Jake does best, a futuristic, stuttering drop.
       
      Jake discusses how the track came together "Alone is the mark I've been aiming at since I started making music. Savoi's vocals inspire me to be as daring and creative with as the production as possible. I'm attracted to textures and melodies more than structure and formulas. I wanted Alone to feel like an art house film, with twists and turns that break champion curiosity over convention."
       
      Jake’s inspiration comes from an eclectic variety of influences, ranging from Lana Del Ray and Lorde all the way to What So Not and Hudson Mowhake, which has inspired the producer to construct something that is truly unique. The Gold Coast based artist has made a name for himself since producing an epic remix of Vance Joy’s cover of ‘Georgia On My Mind’. Dabbling in various other projects, Jake has garnered support from the likes of triple j, Pilerats and EDM Sauce.  
      ‘Alone feat. Savoi’ is out now on Tinted Records.

      Releasing their debut single ‘I Needed You feat. Nick De La Hoyde’ just last year, Sydney duo Boulevarde have impressed industry and fans alike with a songwriting sensibility well beyond their years. For the release of their follow up single ‘Plans’, they’ve teamed up with Melbourne singer/songwriter Aeora, who’s vocal delivery is nothing short of stunning; powerfully commanding whilst retaining beautifully raw and honest qualities.
       
      Produced by the talented team over at Fat Poodle Productions, the release will be accompanied by the duo’s first official music video. Directed by award winning producer, Ellen Dedes-Vallas who’s previous work includes content for Nickelodeon and The Walt Disney Company, she finds a unique way of integrating Boulevarde and Aeora into the charming storyline of the clip.

      On how the collaboration came to be, Boulevarde explains, “we’re always scouting for talented vocalists to work with, and we found this song on JJJ Unearthed by Aeora called Fenceline - it was so unique, so powerful and her vocal delivery just carried so much weight and emotion. It was one of those one’s where we were typing an email up before the song even ends.” WithAeora adding, “The lyrics and melodies came to me really quickly for this track. I was in this headspace of starting to realise I could feel content with how everything was going in my life and that I could just enjoy myself. I also really enjoyed the dynamic we created through working on this song together. It flowed really easily from my end when putting my ideas out there.”

      Boulevarde’s new single ‘Plans’ is out now on Central Station Records.

      Up and coming house producer, SKIY, returns to the world renowned Spinnin’ Deep with a heady new club-single. Titled Flawless, the track offers everything the name suggests: intoxicating beats, anthemic melodies and an authentic club vibe. Marking SKIY’s second release this year already, 2019 is set to be SKIY’s most prolific to date.
       
      SKIY has been turning heads all over the world with her hard-hitting, riff-heavy, rugged house sound. Since her groove-laden hit Who Got The Keys was picked up and signed to Oliver Heldens’ Heldeep records in 2018, SKIY’s output has jumped from strength to strength. She’s shared the stage with Tiesto and Timmy Trumpet, she’s seen her music supported by The Magician, EDX, Chocolate Puma, and Dillion Francis, and now she has penned her second single to Spinnin’ Records. With a rich musical upbringing shared across Brazil, Germany and Croatia that saw her exposed to Jazz, soul and the piano from a young age, SKIY’s music beams with musicality and finesse.
       
      It’s no wonder global tastemakers are sitting up and paying attention.
       
      Flawless evolves SKIY’s sound into booming club territory but doesn’t lose sight of the infectious melodies, jumping basslines and catchy vocals that make a SKIY tune unique. Swells of dancefloor energy rise then give way to energetic four to the floor beats and textured layers of FX for a high-octane club cut that is sure to become a favourite among DJs and fans in 2019. 
       
      SKIY - Flawless is out 4th March

      With all eyes on the debut of ULTRA Australia last weekend, both shows in Melbourne and Sydney on the 23rd and 24th of February were impeccably produced, record breaking events.
       
      Kicking off at Melbourne’s stunning Flemington Racecourse before moving to the beautiful surroundings of Sydney’s Parramatta Park, the festival welcomed over 40,000 fans from across the globe to experience performances from the world’s most revered international artists.
       
      For the first ULTRA Worldwide event of 2019, organisers pulled out all the stops, bringing their unparalleled production and world-class line-ups to Australia, giving fans the ultimate festival experience.  Marshmello, ILLENIUM and Slushii commanded the Main stage with electrifying performances, while Martin Garrix worked the crowds into frenzy as the sun set.  The Chainsmokers closed out both days to a rapturous response.
       
      Making its much-anticipated debut on Australian shores, Joris Voorn was the first international act to take to the RESISTANCE stage.  Nicole Moudaber and Dubfire’s sensational b2b performance kept the crowds coming in thick and fast, while techno titan Adam Beyer left fans quite literally demanding more, as he closed out the inaugural RESISTANCE Australia on both nights.
       
      Australia’s local music scene was heavily represented on all three stages across the weekend, with the crowd going wild for local talent such as: Sunset Bros on the main stage, Steve Ward and Boogs on RESISTANCE and an array of talent over at UMF Radio including: Tigerlily, Mashd N Kutcher and Joel Fletcher to name just a few. 
       
      Organisers offered plenty of shaded areas and free water stations across the grounds of both venues.  With Summer still in full swing, event staff gave away complimentary caps, sunscreen and water to patrons upon entry throughout the weekend, to help keep them cool and comfortable.  Event organisers worked closely with the local authorities to ensure a strong police and medical presence, demonstrating their commitment to patron safety and security.
       
      Ultra Australia will return in 2020.
