^^^this just in^^^ visuals by ZEAL!
Green Nose : extremely loveable and economic artist based in Brisbane, producing music that is meaty, fat and makes you move.
8bit sampled beats, World Music, Hip Hop and Reggae with a lo-fi aesthetic via portable samplers and little synths with spacey sounds.
He says “Green nose mainly playing music at house party and where ever the place got speakers.”
Check out his 2011 debut ‘Hyper Color T-Shirt’ and 2012 follow up ‘Zelax’
2fuddha and able8 push the future-bass sounds you will wish you’d gotten into sooner. Don’t live with regret – catch this before the world takes them away from us.
Ghostsoul : serious sound design chops meets bass heavy breakbeats.. who will win?! New album just released with Melbourne boutique label Uncomfortable Beats
Ruffles : no more neuroscience! just sample-driven bass music! Previewing material from upcoming release on Uncomfortable Beats
Raya Slavin aka Babushkabot: sound designer and composer for dance, theatre and live performance – minimal & cold wave, post punk, noise & classical music.
Briztronix: from the mists of time and the vaults of Brisbane, Briztronix mashes up dusty beats and illbient samples after a long break for paternity leave. New album coming in 2014!
DIV: (ex ionic) Strange sounds for strange times. It’s a dirty shit from under the bed set. Abstract hiphop, glitch and isht from dark corners of old hard drives.
Video Eyes is in your bedroom, under the covers.
