Gypsy Throttle by Barons of Tang

3:44 minutes (4.28 MB)


The Barons Of Tang are a bunch of gypsy deathcore pirates looting the high seas of Melbourne's sweet underbelly. You'll likely find them beneath bridges burning violins and causing jelly wrestling mayhem.

Don't look for them though, they'll find you and force you to slamdance to sea shantys before you know it.

"Ego Eats Your Soul" by Matt Kelly & Buttons Touching

3:27 minutes (3.95 MB)


"Ego Eats Your Soul" is one of a series of pieces created by singer Matt Kelly and producer Lulu Madill of  Button Touching. Matt Kelly has become well known in Melbourne while playing with his band The Keepers, but in this piece he has experimented more with sparse arrangements with  hypnotic repetition of the vocals which move from mantra to chant to dark ballad, creating a somber meditation on the nature of ego lost in the human mind. Buttons Touching's gorgeous arrangements underscore the song creating a haunting and memorable collaboration between the two artists reminiscent of Thom Yorke's best creations.

"Dance, Omega!" > by Hugo 1

4:30 minutes (5.16 MB)

Omega is the symbol of resistance in electronics, so it seems a fitting symbol for the electric age we live in. From evolutionary science to rhyming the zeitgeist, Hugo 1  has been spinning freestyles around Melbourne since arriving from the UK in 2007. At any concert you might hear his spitfire philosophies on anything from schrodinger's cat to deconstructions of conspiracy theory or calls to spiritual liberation. 

Dance, Omega! is  title track of his latest EP release now available.
