A series of unruffled and rapturous tracks capturing a mixture of moods from the Sydney based DJ & producer. Recorded during the creative harvest of 2020, cultivated in the midst of the haze where the dance seemed a distant memory. The debut 4-track EP ‘Lock Box’ available online and in stores now.

“After featuring on compilations from Butter Sessions and Moonshoe Records, ‘Lock Box’ offers a warm welcome into the mind of one of our favourites.

‘Parachutes’ immediately sets the senses adrift, enticing us in with multiple layers of dreamlike melodic haze, sparse broken drums and deep dubwise lows made for full body hypnosis, while the wicked bass bin rumbler ‘103 Alarm’ deals in mysterious swirling rhythms, with alien-like synth stabs and immersive drones turning up the suspense before a wash of melancholy and a whispering voice calls from beyond.

The choppy groove of ‘Juts’ makes for a deep jungle inspired house melter, the soundtrack to a surprise encounter with a friendly being from a distant planet. The final offering ups the stakes with the tech savvy ‘Play-Doh’ whipping us into an acidic frenzy full of heavy bass wobble and moments of sublime dancefloor euphoria.”
