    Whethan Announces His Good Nights Tour Is Actually A “Good Bye Tour”


    Guest

    Whethan unexpectedly just tweeted out that his Good Nights Tour is actually his “good bye tour” and fans are freaking out!

    The 18-year-old producer set off on his tour on September 14, kicking things off in Los Angeles. Little did fans know at the time that he’d be ending his already successful run as a producer (or, at least under the name Whethan).

    The Good Nights Tour 2017 continues, visiting New York, Montreal, Columbus, Detroit, and more through mid-November, ending in his hometown, Chicago.

    Unfortunately, this looks like the beginning of the end:

    During his short, but quick rise on the scene he has delivered hits with “Savage,” “Love Gang” featuring Charli XCX, and his single which sparked this very tour — “Good Night.”

    However, Whethan followed up hours later to clarify that he wasn’t done with music, and also surreptitiously dropped the news that he has an album on the way. Surprise!

      Alex Preston has produced a new EP for Sonny Fodera’s growing Solotoko label. Titled Ain’t Gonna Cry, the EP sees the Australian DJ / producer showcase his exciting new style of underground house music, which fuses tasteful guitar licks and disco tinged funky basslines. Accompanied by a new live show that utilises Alex Preston’s virtuosic talents as an instrumentalist, Ain’t Gonna Cry is set to kick off 2019 with a bang for the Sydney-native whose career keeps growing year on year.  
       
      Since bursting onto the scene a few years back with his deft production abilities and raw aptitude for musicality, Alex Preston has firmly established himself at the helm of Australia’s underground house scene. He regularly appears on the ARIA club charts and has released on Armada Deep, BMKLTSCH RCRDS, and RCA (Sony US), among others. He’s picked up support from the like of Pete Tong, Fatboy Slim, Idris Elba, Oliver Heldens, and many more, while his live show is setting dancefloors alight all over Australia with an innovative blend of live guitar licks and mixing. 
       
      Alex is as comfortable in the studio as he is behind the decks and it shows with Ain’t Gonna Cry. The title track layers soulful disco samples on top of deep and funky bass lines while cascading grooves weave in and out of the beat. I Know I Got occupies darker territory but not with inspired guitar solos while Nobody Else sees Alex inject jumping beats next to tastefully crafted vocals. 
       
      Brimming with musicality and vitality, Ain’t Gonna Cry marks an exciting new direction for Alex Preston’s ever-evolving sound and the stat of an extremely successful 2019.
      Alex Preston – Ain’t Gonna Cry is out 11th January

      Following on from tech-house smash Generate earlier this year, Flash 89 is welcomed to the esteemed Solotoko label by head honcho himself Sonny Fodera, for latest killer release in the form of the Tattle Tail EP. 
       
      Lead EP track Tattle Tail is a rhythmic stomper on first listen, with an invigorating bassline underpinned beneath stuttering clicks and pulses that surrounds a grooving diva vocal. Meanwhile, Lofty transports us to deeper dimensions with an exhilarating build up that ascends into a club ready beast. 
       
      Flash 89 is a name that is continuing to magnify in size on the scene, turning the heads of underground peers and tastemakers alike. It was his remix of PNAU’s Go Bang that catapulted him beyond the Australian landscape landing him plays on BBC Radio 1. Shortly after, hefty club tracks continued to follow including Generate and the Blueprint EP as well as collaboration with Sonny Fodera himself on The Sytem via Adobe. With these slew of hair raising tracks already under his belt it’s no wonder Flash 89 gets the nod of approval from the likes of Danny Howard, De La Swing, Eli Brown, Detlef, Richy Ahmed, Huxley and more. With more material up his sleeves, prepare for Australia’s next high riser to dominate the dance circuit globally. 
       
      Flash 89 – Tattle Tail EP  is out now via Solotoko.

      One of the Pioneers of the dance music world: Sister Bliss from Faithless, will be touching down in Sydney this December for the first time in 10 years. Currently playing in some of the world’s hottest clubs, Sister Bliss will excite her Aussie fans with an exclusive Faithless DJ set, but she's taken time out of her busy tour planning to chat with Ozclubbers' @GALLEON and @Adam Madd.
       
       
      You’ve been around music since you were 5, but what first drew you into the electronic music scene and what inspired you to start DJing?
      I think the otherworldly sounds of synthesisers and drum machines grabbed me in the 80's, and that morphed into what became acid house. 
      The whole scene inspired me - I was collecting records, listening to pirate radio, going to warehouse parties and clubs, and couldn't get enough of this incredible new sound. 
      I used to make mixtapes with my friend - all my 12's on one side, and all hers on the other -so I guess the natural progression was to start DJing. 
       
       
      What can we expect from your sets in Australia this year? Will you be getting out some of the classics, focusing on new content or both?
      I'll be playing a mixture of pretty upfront music as well as some of the classics, and special edits of Faithless material - I have a weekly global radio show " Sister Bliss in Session " - and that really keeps me on top of new releases - I like to look forward musically, as there is so much great music out there, as well as bringing the crowd pleasers! 
       
       
      You’ve been referred to as the “musical engine” of Faithless.  What can you tell us about the process you go through when creating new tracks?
      Its never just one process - for me it could be anything from playing around with a chord sequence, to a melody, or vocal, to how the drums inspire me… every day is different - but I can't write without a good bass sound! Once the rough ideas are down, then its always a process of refining it, maybe working with a vocalist if it feels like it needs a vocal, sometimes playing with it for months! - and then eventually road testing it in my DJ sets. 
       
       
      What's happening on the production front for you currently?
      We are working on a new Faithless album due to be released in 2019 so thats keeping  me busy!
       
       
      How do you feel becoming a mother affected your music career?
      I think its mainly affected the amount of touring I've been able to do - I've been very lucky in that my son was able to travel with me on some DJ tours and with Faithless until he started school. Now, I've had to be more selective about when I can tour  - if they are longer and don't work with school holidays it can be a logistic nightmare with childcare! 
      i have to be very organised with my time which can be tough- for example having spent years in studios until 4am - which is sometimes when the creative juices flow - is just not feasible now. 
      I think working mothers have a tough gig - especially when you're self employed - if you don't work there is no safety net whatsoever. 
      I don't think people realise that within dance music or DJing as a career, there is no maternity pay, no sick pay, no pension - it can be pretty precarious, especially for those just starting out. 
       
       
      If you had the power to change one thing in the electronic music scene, what would that be and why?
      I think awareness of the things I mentioned above is important - and recently there has been a bit more of a discussion around mental health which is helpful. 
      This scene has become a way of life for so many people - and as an industry happens to generate a huge amount of money globally - so respect and support is needed for those in our industry - not just the superstar DJ's and artists but all those who make their job possible. 
       
       
      What would be your most memorable gig to date?
      I've been very lucky to have had so many memorable gigs - most recently playing a festival in Sarajevo was very emotional for me - I'd never played there before - but before the show I was speaking to people about their experiences during the war when they were under siege - which was very powerful and humbling. 
      There were also bullet holes in many buildings - a stark reminder of the snipers that lined the streets so recently -I dont think we can't begin to imagine how terrifying it was being shot at on a daily basis, and how normal life was just impossible. 
      Its very rare I tear up during a DJ set - but the lyrics - especially of the Faithless music I played that night felt extra resonant - and extra urgent as many parts of the world seem to be plunging into a very hateful place!  
       
       
      What are your current top 3 records right now?
      Like most of the world top Oz boy Fisher's "Losing It" is a dance floor weapon,  The Chemical Borthers are back on form with " Free Yourself" and a lovely sunrise number called "Together" from R&D 
       
       
      Are there any artists that you would recommend our readers check out?
      Really liking Circle Sky, also a rapper called Gaika, and on the pop side loving Christine & the Queens. 
       
       
      Lastly, can you tell us some interesting or unusual story from your (over) 20 years of touring?  (Our readers are pretty open minded, so no need to hold back)
      There are plenty I could tell you but what goes on tour, stays on tour!
