The run of shows will wrap up at Fremantle’s Coast Port Beach club on Sunday, December 12. Iconic homegrown duo, Crooked Colours (DJ Set), San Cisco's Beryl Streep, local legends VK, Wheresholly and Soulsby are set to provide the soundtrack for the evening.
DIPLO FEAT. JUNGLE - DON’T BE AFRAID
I'm definitely spinning this song every single DJ set I play this summer!
ALICE IVY & SYCCO - WEAKNESS
What can I say! I’m a massive Sycco fan and I’m so stoked this song is finally out!
LOJAY & SARZ - MONALISA
This song screams summer!
POLO & PAN / CHANNEL TRES - TUNNEL
The first time I heard this song I was driving to my studio and I had to drive round the block one more time to hear it play out. This song is lowkey hectic!
CAROLINE POLACHEK - BUNNY IS A RIDER
One of my favourite songs of the year. Caroline Polechek’s vocals and the songwriting are next level.
HOLIDAY 87 - CHIMERA” (ALICE IVY REMIX)
I had the honour of remixing Holiday 87’s single “Chimera” earlier this year. I’m a really big fan of all of his stuff. I got a bit obsessed with this bassline I laid down for it.
REIJJE SNOW - RAINBOWS
This song has been a favourite of mine for a few years now. The baseline, the chorus and soundscape is all so lush. Definitely something that would soundtrack kick ons in summer.
GORILLAZ - ON MELANCHOLY HILL
I saw Gorlillaz when they toured the Plastic Beach album a few years ago and they were incredible. Damon Albarn has definitely influenced the kind of music I make today. This song is one of my all-time favourite songs. It just reminds me of just sitting on the beach!
OSCAR KEY SUNG - CLUB MATE
A friend revived this song at a house party the other day. I love all of the delicate little harmonies and soundscapes.
HIATUS KAIYOTE - RED ROOM
My favourite song of 2021. This band is so special, and "Red Room" just makes you feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside.
