CLYPSO

CLYPSO

( )

Sydney, NSW

We're so excited to be featuring Sydney producer and vocalist, CLYPSO. Get ready for a fusion of jungle beats, grimey basslines, atari-esque synths and afropunk infused electronica.

Read Interview

Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?

I like to call it troppo-chilli-flakes because it's a blend of scattered beats, grimey bass lines and I also shout a lot. I feel like my music has become an extension of everything I’ve listened to as a kid to now. I realise this more and more with each song I make. It’s kinda freaky.

What’s your greatest source of inspiration for making music?

It’s addictive and the idea that something comes out of nothing is fascinating and I’m inspired by that.

What can punters expect from a CLYPSO live show?

Me singing and dancing my heart out with my keyboard, drum pad and sampler. I’ve also done some shows with dancers.

What’s the best advice you’ve been given and who was it from?

"Always know your emergency exits and how to use a fire extinguisher". Optimistic Dad.

What Australian track would you play to cheer up someone who was crying?

'Throw Your Arms Around Me' by the Hunters and Collectors. There's nothing quite like a singalong-cry-along with a mate to make things better.

What Australian track would you play to someone to make them cry?

 Annie Bass, and her track, 'Don’t Want'.

You’re the DJ at a party. The dance floor is pumping. What Australian track do you put on next?

Swindail and his track, 'Two Stomp (+5 BPM)'.

What was the last local gig you went to? How was it?

Shameless plug alert. Kwame’s show at The Lair (Metro). It got real loose.

Tell us about the bands or people in the Sydney music community that inspire you.

Community radio peeps and all the different crews and collectives I've been meeting. Girls Rock Sydney who do great work inspiring the next gen but also my female producer pals. Support and community are important.

What are your plans for 2018?

 I'll be releasing more new music and coming to a stage near you!

Luboku

( )

Melbourne, VIC

Melbourne artist Luboku is this week's triple j Unearthed Feature Artist.  His ability to sweep you off your feet with this carefully crafted production, hypnotic touch and brooding melodies is something you need to here.

Read Interview

Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?

For me, it's all about experimenting and letting go of what you think something should sound like. I spent a lot of time trying to make music sound a certain way, but I found the less I tried the more natural things sounded.

What’s your greatest source of inspiration for making music?

A lot of stuff inspires me, but creatively I’m inspired by sounds. I can’t put my finger on it, but the smallest of sounds can inspire some of the most interesting tracks, I’m always searching for those sounds that evoke emotion somehow, it’s a really fun way to write.

What can punters expect from a Luboku live show?

It’s very dynamic, I like to take people on a journey with me as the set expands and contracts. Think Nils Frahm x Jon Hopkins x James Blake, or just come to my show with What So Not this weekend and find out for yourself!

What’s the best advice you’ve been given and who was it from?

My uncle is a long-time muso and he’s always told me to stick with my gut feel - your first instinct is usually the best, pretty much 99% of the time.

What Australian track would you play to cheer up someone who was crying?

Men At Work - Down Under. No one could escape this one, it’s too good a singalong.

What Australian track would you play to someone to make them cry?

Dustin Tebbutt - The Breach.

You’re the DJ at a party. The dance floor is pumping. What Australian track do you put on next?

Flume - HyperParadise remix, still a jam.

What was the last local gig you went to? How was it?

Well, it wasn’t the most recent one, but Kamasi Washington’s performance earlier this year has really stuck with me, an amazing show and his dad came out onstage to play mid-set which was actually epic.

Tell us about the bands or people in the Melbourne music community that inspire you.

I’m really inspired by the community itself! There is so much great music coming out of Melbourne every day, I think it’s something which is pretty singular to our city. That said, good friends Two People are doing some lovely stuff, as are Kllo, Jack Grace, Lonelyspeck and a lot more people who have probably escaped my mind at this moment.

What are your plans for 2018?

I just finished my debut EP, so that’s on its way, lots more live shows and maybe a few surprises too, I guess you’ll have to wait and see!
