Australian electronic duo Nocturnal Tapes has only been working together for about 2 years but their musical palette is quite broad, with influences ranging from hip-hop, blues and funk, to psychedelic, electronic and dance. New single “Pieces” sees them significantly progress by introducing Tech-house influences, drawing inspiration from Caribou, The Presets and LCD Soundsystem.
With solid 4/4 beats, escalating arpeggio and vocals awash with reverb, the track shines a different light on the band’s creative depth but their pop sensibilities and smart approach to songwriting still remain intact.
Bonus track: “Superficial Light”
With more new material up their sleeve, this is an act to keep an eye on in the coming months. Find out more on their Facebook or SoundCloud. Buy the music on
Australia’s most loved electronic act PNAU is back with “Chameleon”, their first single in 4 years. This new electrifying tune is produced by Sam Littlemore (co-producer of PNAU’s 2007 self-titled album and now an integral part of the band) and features the addition of Kira Devine, previously a dancer and back-up singer for Lauryn Hill, on vocals bringing a new layer to the band’s vision.
To know PNAU is to know that their creative process cannot be bundled into just one song and this is why the single comes with a handpicked selection of remixes courtesy of some of the world’s most prolific DJs.

Born on the French Riviera but based in Paris, Møme (aka Jérémy Souillart) is a young composer and producer whose blend of soulful electronica has been gaining considerable traction over the past two years. After releasing a handful of EPs and sharing stage with artists such as Chet Faker and Flume, Møme is now unveiling his long-awaited debut album, Panorama.
Released 25 November, Panorama features heavily layered, brightly shining electronic pieces that display Møme’s production skills and beat making artistry. The album was for the most part written and recorded while the young musician was touring Australia, a venture that brought him into contact with other producers and singers such as Merryn Jeann, Midnight To Monaco, Dylan Wright and more.

SØNDER is the brainchild of UK-based South African producer Ashton Fox, who has been making music for a while now under various monikers. Obsessed with music from an early age, he grew up playing the violin, piano and guitar – performing in various orchestras and bands until he discovered the endless possibilities of electronic music.
Since 2014 Fox has been releasing club bangers as SØNDER with the aim of making electronic music that can accompany walks and long journeys but that can also find its way onto a dimly lit dancefloor. With plenty more music on the way and a live show currently in the works, SØNDER’s journey has only just begun.
