Fade Up :: Just A Gent
It’s not often that Newcastle schoolboys have their songs hit #1 on Hype Machine, but Just A Gent doesn’t mind breaking that trend. He’s managed to create a sound that appeals to a large audience without sacrificing artistic integrity, and he’s put together a 20 minute mixtape for you.
Fade Up :: Platform 19
Thought it was only UK kids bringing back garage and house music? You were one thousand per cent wrong. Platform 19 are doing the good stuff right here in Sydney. Listen.
Fade Up :: Terace
Terace don’t like to broadcast their faces across the internet, but luckily their music captures all necessary attention. Inquire within for 20 minutes of warped, bassy house music.
Fade Up :: Kun
With a buzzing SoundCloud account but almost zero recognition in his hometown, Kun is definitely a 21st century muso, and he’s got a forward-thinking sound to match. Hear his Fade Up mix.
Fade Up :: Hatch
Sydney producer Hatch has made everything from monstrous club tracks to soul-warming jams with live instrumentation. It’ll be interesting to see how he develops in the future, but right now we get a glimpse of his softer, more vulnerable side in his Fade Up mix.
Fade Up :: Chiefs
Much like Kilter, Chiefs has recently stepped up from making sample-heavy hip hop beats, to releasing much more creative, fully-realised productions. Listen to a 20 minute mixtape from the rising Melbourne producer.
Fade Up :: Palace
A while ago, producer Jeremy Smith put together a fun mash-up album called B.I.G. Flume with his mate Jaymee, and it went all kinds of bananas on the internet. Now he’s reinvented himself as Palace and is making tropical beats that you can hop, skip and jump to in a club. Get inside his Fade Up mixtape.
Fade Up :: Tink
Adelaide isn’t known as the party hub of Australia, but that’s done anything but deter Tink from thrashing out some intense nights down south. Hear her Fade Up mixtape.
