Wayfarer// is a product of the burgeoning production and beats scene from Melbourne, Australia. Joining the city’s growing output of musician-producers who meld dusty samples with live instruments and synths, Wayfarer// is building a new unique sound. His brand new tune “Broken Wire” features guest vocals by fellow Melburnian singer/songwriter Will Cuming aka LANKS.
In 2016, the stunning remixes he produced for LANKS (‘Golden Age’) and Woodes (‘Daggers & Knives’) helped put the young beat-maker on the radar, getting a few mentions on trend-setting blogs downunder, as well as some airplay on Triple J. Since the beginning of the year, he has released three singles and racked in over 100K plays on SoundCloud — and counting!

Rising Australian multi-talented artist Golden Vessel (born Max Byrne) is back with “Shoulders”, the latest preview of his second EP. Released in collaboration with Exist Recordings (a label founded by none other than The Kite String Tangle), “Shoulders” sees the Brisbane-based producer venture further into soundscapes mixing sultry R&B and future electronica with a sprinkling of hip-hop edge.
Influenced by Flume, James Blake or Chet Faker, Byrne’s smooth blend of bouncy down-tempo beats and wonky synths create the perfect backdrop for some seriously infectious vocals provided by fellow Brisbanites, and accomplished artists in their own right, Elkkle and Mallrat. A match made in heaven if there ever was one!

Made up of twins Vuli and Moody and childhood friend Klue, Sydney trio True Vibenation blend hip-hop with everything from future beats to dancehall to trap music and even a touch of pop.

With hundreds of shows under their belt, True Vibenation have developed a strong following thanks to their unique combination of infectious hooks and razor sharp raps with roaring live horns and genre-bending electronic beats.
