Stream ‘Voyage EP’ by Moi Je

Earlier this month, a French crew who go by the name Moi Je released their latest six-track ‘Voyage EP’, and I must say that listening to this ep is like bouncing around on big soft fluffy clouds in some strange Mario Bros-like world.

‘Voyage EP’ has all of the jazz, soul, disco, funk and groove that you’ll need this week, so just hit that play button and let Moi Je do the rest.

Nick Pes – ‘Sunsets’

Sydney-based musician Nick Pes has a great new synth-pop tune to share with us this week called ‘Sunsets’, which comes accompanied by a viscerally sombre Josh Harris directed music video that was inspired by cult sci-fi and Neo Noir films, and explores the challenges that modern and future relationships face.

“The thing about a sunset is that one happens every single day, some more amazing than others, but daily nonetheless – but if you allow yourself to experience it can feel like the most beautiful and important moment in the world. There’s a sadness because it’s an ending but it also marks a beginning. You can’t stop it from happening so you just have to go with it.” – Nick Pes

acid stag radio; October Week 4

Tune in to acid stag radio as we showcase some of the best tracks we’ve shared on the site over the last week, and be sure to follow our Spotify ‘page’ (not the playlist) to catch a brand new playlist every week.

Spotify is a fantastic platform not only for its accessibility and versatility for you to be able to listen to pretty much anything, anywhere, anytime, but it’s also great for independent artists because they actually collect revenue for each and every play their track gets. This is of course a very small amount, but the more times you play their music, the more money you can help them make – it’s a total win-win situation!




Non-MixTape Remixes 149

Each week we collect a neat little assortment of weird, interesting and very cool remixes that just aren’t suitable for our Friday MixTapes, so we have the Non-MixTape Remix series set up to showcase some of these great remix creations.

Charlie Winston – Too Long (JATA Remix)

ARIZONA – I Was Wrong (BAYNK Remix)

Wingtip – Rewind (ft. Sophie Strauss) (Olmos Remix)

Violet Days – Your Girl (Win & Woo Remix)

courtship. – Stop For Nothing (SACHI Remix)


Stream ‘Luminous EP’ by Goldielocks

A few weeks ago we shared this stunning new single from a Canberra-based producer who goes by the name Goldielocks, it was called ‘Liquify’ and it still does some seriously weird and wonderful things to me every time I listen to it.

That track was promised to be seen on Goldielocks‘ upcoming second ep which was in-fact released last week, and it’s three tracks offer up an intriguing and sonically pleasing glimpse into a world of ambient electronica that walks a fine line between varying genres such as hip-hop, synth-pop and electro-soul.

‘Luminous EP’ is out now through via Inertia Access.

Xavier Dunn – ‘Give In (ft. Airling)’

Sydney multi-instrumentalist, producer and vocalist Xavier Dunn has some big news to share with us this week; he’s just signed to a new label called 1825 Records (joint venture between Unified’s Jaddan Comerford and Wonder Management’s Matt Emsell) as their first official signee, and along with this exiting news comes a gorgeous new single called ‘Give In’ which features the vocal assistance of Australian songstress Airling.

Pretty sure we can expect more new releases from Xavier Dunn very soon, so you best hit him up on his socials to be kept in the loop on those.

The Tapes – ‘You Know It’s Real’

This little treat came in late last week and I’ve been itching to get it up for you all to check out – I did manage to squeeze it into the Friday MixTape though if you haven’t heard that yet

It’s an awesome new track from a Sydney duo who call themselves The Tapes, it’s called ‘You Know It’s Real’ and it has a strong nostalgic synth-driven vibe with romantic falsetto vocals that are seriously easy to fall in love with – if this song was hitting on me in a club I would have been back at his place before it even ended

The Tapes will be releasing their self-titled debut EP on November 11 through Nook Nook Records, which will coincide with an EP Launch Party at ‘Civic Underground’ on November 10 – you can keep yourself up-to-date on both of those via the below socials

Fortunes – ‘501’s’

Last Friday Melbourne duo Fortunes share a brand new smooth & sexy new tune called ‘501’s’ which is all about hot boys in tight jeans, and it also comes with the news of them signing to Future Classic, and a four-date East-Coast tour.

Aussie fans can catch Fortunes around the country this November as they make their way through Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide for their ‘501’s Tour’ – click the artwork below for more details
