WITH A J – WIth a J is an established name in the Melbourne electronic music scene. Part of the Doesn’t Matter collective, With A J is as comfortable playing alongside Rodskeez, Kasey Taylor and Jamie Stevens as at doofs in the Australian bush. Stoked to have With a J onboard with Arthouse.

SEKKT – Sekkt is made up of siblings – Pavel (production, trumpet), Lenka (vocals, saxophone) and Matija (vocals, trombone) who have been playing music together since they were children.

In recording and performance, Sekkt combines live instruments with electronic beats; Eastern European melodies, with funk and electronica, both original compositions and remixes.
