    Here are the dance acts that scored nominations at the 2017 ARIA Awards


    InTheMix

    After a few weeks of drip feeding, ARIA has finally dropped the full list of nominees for their 2017 Awards, which are set to take place in Sydney in November.

    While it’s definitely not going to be a repeat of last year — when Flume took home gongs for practically everything — it’s still looking to be mighty competitive on the dance front.

    ‘Chameleon’ hitmakers Pnau are going up against Dom Dolla, Jagwar Ma, Peking Duk and The Kite String Tangle in the Best Dance Release category, and the Aussie veterans have also landed a nod in the prestigious Song Of The Year field, against songs from Amy Shark, Sia and Peking Duk yet again again.

    Flume has scored one nomination, though, despite not releasing any new singles this year — he’s up for Best Australian Live Act alongside the likes of Client Liaison, Nick Cave and Illy.

    Peking Duk have gotten a number of nominations, including for Best Group and Best Australian Live Act. Elsewhere, Gang Of Youths, A.B. Original, and Amy Shark are looking to be the big winners on the night, all scoring multiple nominations in categories including the big one: Album Of The Year.

    Check out the full list of nominees and current winners below. The ARIA Awards will take place at Sydney’s Star on November 28.

      New data released today suggests NSW taxpayers are forking out hundreds of thousands of dollars for sniffer dogs at music festivals, despite little evidence they are effective.
      According to information compiled by the NSW Greens and reported by The Guardian, the cost of just three drug detection dogs at a music festival is a steep $6,006 per hour — or $36,036 for six hours. When extrapolated to 20 events a year, that figure turns into $720,720.
      Figures provided to Greens Justice spokesman David Shoebridge state that 9,380 people were searched as part of drug detection operations in the last year — but of those, only 1.7 percent were charged with drug dealing offences. Further information given to the NSW parliament shows that police spend nearly $9.5 million a year to maintain a drug detection squad.
      Read More Pill testing will no longer take place at festival Spilt Milk   For most music events, police decide whether they require drug detection squads and additional officers on the ground — and this cost is built into the overall ticket price.
      “Every time you see a dog at a festival that’s $2,000 per hour…for a dog who will 60 to 80 percent of the time sniff out someone who is not carrying any drugs,” Shoebridge told The Guardian. “$36,000 per festival to encourage people to take all their drugs at once, in advance, use drugs thought to be less detectable or just buy drugs inside the venue.”
      But NSW Police Minister Troy Grant — who has long been a fierce opponent to harm reduction services such as pill testing — rejected the claims made by the Greens, saying the dogs have a “strong deterrence factor” and he “makes no apology for using drug detection dogs to send a message to the community that we do not condone illicit drug use or trafficking”.
      This data comes less than a week after Canberra’s Spilt Milk festival abandoned plans to host a pill testing service at their event in November, citing a dispute over incomplete documentation.

      A slew of dance legends have opened up about the immense mental and physical toll of professional DJing in an eye-opening new documentary, Why We DJ — Slaves To The Rhythm. 
      The DJ Sounds produced doco was premiered recently at Amsterdam Dance Event, and features in-depth and candid discussions about mental health and addiction with acts such as Erick Morillo, Carl Cox, Luciano, Seth Troxler, Ben Pearce, and Pete Tong.
      The 40-minute film points to factors including creative pressure, constant media attention, omnipresent drugs and alcohol, and extreme sleep deprivation caused by a relentless touring schedules as to some of the reasons DJs experience such poor mental health.
      Read More We Regret To Inform You That The ABC Has Just Discovered Nangs   “It’s a crazy life…I think there’s an expiration date on your own sanity and trying to keep human with being a DJ,” Troxler says at one point. “It’s an odd profession where you’re [on stage] in front of hundreds of thousands of people, and then someone puts you in a room and you’re just…alone. That’s when it gets a bit sad. That’s why I think many DJs have problems with drugs, or even sex addiction — it’s just to cure the loneliness.”
      “We’ve lost a lot of people to drugs,” Troxler adds. “A lot of really talented people. They just kind of…floated to the wayside.”
      “I was drinking every day and chucking my life down the drain,” Ben Pearce confesses later in the film. “It got to a point that I knew that if I didn’t do something about it, I wouldn’t be around much longer.”
      Despite the obvious issues DJs face, Pete Tong says artists struggle to get support and sympathy: “Everyone’s got that image in their head of private jets and champagne…but the touring life of a DJ is really hard.”
      Why We DJ — Slaves To The Rhythm is now online, watch it below.

      Belgian melody wizard, Henri PFR, has been carving his path in the chiller genres of the electronic music spectrum over in Europe with his summertime remixes and infectious originals. While summer is well behind much of Europe and North America, the rising producer has teamed up with fellow Belgian stalwart, Romeo Blanco, for a nostalgic piece titled “In The Mood.”
      Accompanied with a video set in the Mediterranean with gorgeous cliffs and crystal oceans, Henri PFR and Romeo Blanco soundtrack the video with their single that is driven with bouncing melodies and bright horns that is tailored for outdoor activities. While winter may be imminently coming in most parts of the world, the duo’s song will surely keep those looking forward to summer 2018 warm through the colder months.
      “In The Mood” is set for release on October 20th, but watch the track’s music video exclusively on Dancing Astronaut above.

      ODESZA has released a behind the scenes video illustrating the decisive events and artistic process that led to video accompaniment to their collaborative single with Leon Bridges, “Across The Room.” The breezy piano ballad, sung by Bridges, was released on ODESZA’s newest album A Moment Apart. 
      According to the video, Bridges had been a “dream collab” for the ODESZA boys for quite some time. Conversely, Bridges admits he had not heard of the duo prior to their reaching out to him; though later in the video he satisfactorily reports they are “the coolest cats” he has worked with thus far in his career.
      Both ODESZA and Bridges emphasize the creative energy discernible between them in their first meeting, which incited the eight hour studio session resulting in “Across The Room.”
