Chiefs | Soundcloud

In less than six months, rookie Melbourne producer Chiefs has managed to release a debut EP, some singles, and quite a few remixes including Drake, Robin Thicke, Major Lazer, Paces and most recently Crooked Colours. He draws sonically from Hip Hop, Trap and Jersey Club but still manages to keep it danceable. The R&B samples, heavy bass, and melodic synths come together for a trifecta of bassy goodness. Having been featured on both the first compilation album by Pilerats Records and DIE HIGH Records’ DIEHIGHlights and being championed by the likes of Ta-Ku and Stwo, big things are all but assured.

LIZ | Soundcloud

So LIZ dropped her debut EP Just Like You through Diplo’s Mad Decent label last week. The Y2K stylized R&B bubblegum princess gives us 7 free songs on the EP – 5 of which had not been previously released. With production duties being handled by artists like Mr. Carmack, Djemba Djemba, Colta, and Lido, among others, the EP tackles a slew of different genres including UK Garage, Baltimore Club, and Pop; yet, most importantly centers itself around a chill R&B vibe. I’m a sucker for female vocals and LIZ delivers.

46/53 Days

After Shlohmo remixed Jeremih’s “Fuck U All the Time” to great acclaim, the two got in the studio. That session spawned the collab “Bo Peep (Do U Right)” which played to each artist’s strengths and proved this was a formidable sonic duo. Shlohmo and Jeremih have plans on releasing collab EP No More in March. By the time April rolls around we’ll be all too ready to catch the Wedidit co-head dropping his signature sexy bass heavy tunes. Shlohmo is playing Friday, we’ll see you there!

Wave Racer | Soundcloud

Young Aussie producer Wave Racer is back at it with his new single Streamers. He came splashing onto the scene last year with his Rock U Tonight EP and shimmering remix of Panama’s hit track, “Always”. All of these releases have been on the prestigious Australian Label Future Classic. On Streamers, Wave Racer expands on his own take on funky glitchy Australian dance music that we love.

Cashmere Cat | Soundcloud

It seems like way longer than a year and a half since Magnus August Høiberg aka Cashmere Cat stormed the scene with his unique style of bass music with his debut ‘Mirror Maru EP’. Kitty’s managed to stay busy since then, dropping a handful of remixes that found steady rotation from heavy hitters like Hudson Mohawke, Diplo and Baauer. He returns gloriously to a scene that’s become stale and diluted with his ‘Wedding Bells EP’ with layers, instruments, ranges and ambitions suitable for an LP. The blissed out vibes we saw in ‘Mirror Maru’ have become a bit more melancholic and dazed. The dissonance between the heavy 808 style bass and the twinkling melodies creates a contrast that can best be summed up as beautifully eerie weirdness. Cashmere Cat changes up his signature sound to stay fresh on his sophomore EP. Yet, as soon as you fire it up, you’ll appreciate that kitty’s still got you dancing in mind.
