FYI: As one of Australia’s most innovative music management companies, Astral People’s roster includes Wave Racer, Roland Tings, Cosmo’s Midnight, Jonti, Basenji, GL, Rainbow Chan, Collarbones and many more. Astral People has found a way to foster local talent while also bringing some incredible international artists to Australia, including Freddie Gibbs, Pantha Du Prince, Omar S, Shigeto, XXYYXX, Action Bronson, Nightmares On Wax, Giraffage, Nosaj Thing, Peanut Butter Wolf and Stormzy. Peep the mix below that features Astral People’s Cosmo’s Midnight.
FYI: Madeleine Carr aka SPORTS, Sporty Spice to some, gained attention in late last year when she was hand-picked by FBi Radio and V Movement’s inaugural ‘Dance Class ’. Whether it’s disco influenced house, bouncy club tracks or hard hitting techno, Sports guarantees girl power with a healthy dose of attitude – keeping you on your toes since 2015.
FYI: Swiss Dank is a collective of Sydney selectors who place particular emphasis on contemporary club rap, all while paying tribute to the gems of hip hop past. Throwing a monthly hip hop party every month, Swiss Dank just premiered this sick November mix that you definitely don’t want to miss.
FYI: “Dancefreak” collective Pelvis arguably throws the trippiest parties in Sydney. A collective of DJs, ranging “anywhere from three to 10” in number, Pelvis keeps it intentionally ambiguous, further contributing to the dreamy and communal experience they cultivate in their shows. Pelvis also makes the performance visual a strong priority, transforming the dance club into a space to both boogie and behold. Look out for their sick tees and hats which will also be available at the MADE Sydney pop up shops from November 11-13.
FYI: Zimbabwe-born, New Zealand-based Young Tapz is a name to know and a force to be reckoned with. Making music since the age of 15, Young Tapz has performed sold out shows all over the world and has shared the stage with A$AP Ferg, Hermitude and G-Eazy. We look forward to seeing what he continues to create, both solo and in collaboration with other Aussie and international talents.
FYI: AUX God, also known as Ciesay, will be DJing while also photographing for MADE Sydney under his Places+Faces moniker. Places+Faces is the duo behind the refreshingly lit portraits of hip hop’s inner circle, capturing the likes of Young Thug, Kanye West, ASAP Rocky, Wiz Khalifa, Travis Scott and Ty Dolla Sign.
FYI: SETTINGS° are keeping it elusive and unexpected. The founders of Sydney’s newest and most exciting art-directed event are the latest addition to the lineup – expect moody R’n’B/hip-hop, contemporary rap and plenty of Travis Scott.
