SOUNDS LIKE – Anderson Paak, Stwo, Hiatus Kaiyote KAYTRANADA is back. Whether you’ve never heard of this hip-hop / R&B / house / soul fusing titan before or you’ve seen him set Boiler Room sessions alight, this guy can do it all. Just finding three artists who he sounds like was a genuine struggle for me, as he regularly produces tracks that span all of these genres and yet s...

Upcoming Melbourne producer: EMERSON LONG

  SOUNDS LIKE – Kygo, Snakehips, RÜFÜS Melbourne producer Emerson Long has announced himself on the electronic music block with his summery new track ‘Heatwave’ (see what I did there).     If I had to assign a matching Melbourne coffee to this tune I would say it’s a tasty latté made by your favourite hunk of a slightly too flirtatious barista. Hear me out: T...

TRACK OF THE WEEK: Papa G and The Starcats – Manipulation (Live)

‘Manipulation’ is the opening track from The Starcats’ new live album, and with faced paced bass & guitar lines and an equally juicy horn section (saxophones aplenty = me likey) behind Amber Ferarro’s commanding vocals, this group has the layers of sound and soul needed to fill you up with nutritious musical goodness.


There aren’t many bands whose individual side projects make me froth at the mouth, but when the all-conquering Tame Impala’s drummer Jay Watson decided to channel his inner swagger into a solo alias ‘GUM’ and create beautiful funky fuzziness, I was hooked.

TRACK OF THE WEEK: Tom Misch – Your Love (feat. Alexa Harley)

After a brief hiatus and a well publicised stint in rehab, Track of The Week is sober and clean and back for the Melbourne summer with a cracking release from up and coming British producer Tom Misch.

Listen OUT

Listen Out Festival took over the sunny Catani Gardens for one jam-packed Saturday last week, and with the help of Red Bull Australia and my Jufl counterparts I had the pleasure of donning my speed dealers and going undercover to see what all the fuss is about. Here is Jufl’s report card for Listen Out 2015.    THE MUSIC THUMBS UP Ryan Hemsworth – My big winner for the day. I’ve been waiting to se...


Jufl has teamed up with Redbull to have a chat with Dizz1, producer and DJ, about his career and playing ListenOut 2015.

Kings – Fall In Fall Out

TRACK OF THE WEEK  Kings – Fall In Fall Out SOUNDS LIKE – Two Door Cinema Club, Temper Trap, San Cisco This week I’m taking a look at Kings, a group of indie rockers with a debut single that will make you want to test your voice’s limits and sing along up high. Really high – maybe try it on your own in the car before showing off. After listening to this, anyone who tells you that they wouldn...

Andras and Oscar – What You Want

TRACK OF THE WEEK SOUNDS LIKE – Brame & Hamo, Wayne Snow, Dez Andrés Leading the way forward for Melbourne’s deep house scene recently is the pairing of young guns András Fox and Oscar Key Sung. Their new release is toe tapping, head bopping, cheeky grin-inspiring stuff, and like an itch worth scratching, you won’t be able to stop at listening to it once. Whether it’s the mellowed synth’...

We Speak to Pitbull | Jufl

[fusion_text]ON THE COUCH WITH PITBULL The man, the myth, the legend. He’s been flying the flag for the bald latino 30-somethings of pop music for what feels like an eternity, prompting many to wonder ‘when it will all come to an end?’. Let’s hope it’s soon. I sat down for a chat with Mr. 305 and his translator, who assisted me with every second response seeing as ‘Mr. Worldwide’ now subconsciousl...

NAFASI – Window

TRACK OF THE WEEK SOUNDS LIKE – Alpine, Ryan Hemsworth, Little Dragon This is music made for sinking beers in the bath with your fully clothed mates. And if you can’t imagine enjoying that during uni holidays you need to loosen up a bit. Shut your eyes and tune in to this psychedelic groove and you’ll probably forget something really important. For me this tune is driven by how in sync every...

ESESE – Wonderland

TRACK OF THE WEEK SOUNDS LIKE – REMI, Chet Faker, DJ Cam Quartet Eastern Seaboard Electric Soul Experience, wow. Their name may look like a mouthful but make no mistake, this new beat ‘Wonderland’ is so smooth it’ll melt in your mouth. Or ears. Definitely one of those. Headlined by the rhymes of Hancoq and the clean vocals of tenor Hudson James Jr., this collective of young musicians and producers...
