Baker Boy

( )

Melbourne, VIC

Born in Darwin and raised in the remote NT communities, rapper, actor and dancer, Danzel Baker AKA Baker Boy, is three times the charm!  At just 20 years old, he plans to be the first Indigenous rapper to rap in his Yolngu Matha language. 

Read Interview

Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?
 
My sound was developed around the influences of my traditional music fused with my current involvement with hip hop music and dance. I wanted to be the first Indigenous rapper to rap in language, mine being Yolngu Matha.
 
I worked with a producer Tobiahs Fakhri to create the track Cloud9 to include not only modern hip hop elements that I connect with but also Yidaki (Didgeridoo) and the language Yolngu Matha for traditional sounds. The perfect fusion of my two worlds that I have grown up with. 
 
What's your greatest source of inspiration for making music?
 
I haven't had one stand out inspirer that has lead me to making music. I more saw an opportunity for Indigenous musicians and rappers to express themselves in language rather than English. Music and dance have always been an integral part of my life from growing up in Milingimbi and this only developed more since moving away and schooling and further into my career with Djuki Mala and Indigenous Hip Hop Projects.
 
If anything my dance work has inspired me and allowed this to happen. Influences like Yothu Yindi, Gurrumul, Gawurra and Yirrimal showed me to be proud of where I am from and use my voice through rap to communicate my messages.
 
What can punters expect from a Baker Boy live show?
 
They can expect to see a lot of dancing, energy, I'll play the Yidaki, hear language Yolngu Matha and a young handsome proud Yolngu boy - Baker Boy.
 
What's the best advice you've been given and who was it from?
 
I remember my dad telling me, 'if you have a goal, know its not going to be easy, but if you put your mind to it, work hard and reach for the sky reach until you grab it with your bare hands'. He always tells me 'keep going there's no limit'. I'm pretty much following my dads' footsteps but trying to go next level.
 
What Australian track would you play to cheer up someone who was crying?
 
Brolga by Yirrimal!!! My poison cousin.
 
What Australian track would you play to someone to make them cry?
 
I would play them Wiyathul by Gurrumul. Just play the whole album actually !!
 
You're the DJ at a party. The dance floor is pumping. What Australian track do you put on next?
 
I'd tell them put Cloud9 - Baker Boy ;)
 
What was the last local gig you went to? How was it?
 
I saw my friends band Jakubi. They are a home grown Melbourne band that are so hard working and crazy talented.
 
Tell us about the bands or people in the Melbourne music community that inspire you.
 
Briggs and Yirrimal both inspired me and got me thinking about the whole fusion of traditional and current hip hop. They both are so incredible in their own way with such different genres and sounds and both proud Indigenous men.
 
What are your plans for 2017?
 
My plans for 2017 are to continuing writing more music in my Baker Boy style, and help two worlds collaborate and merge to one as I only see one. I will continue dancing and working in remote indigenous communities with IHHP inspiring youth and sharing my story and journey.
 
I want to be the next David Gulpilil and have started acting and already feature on a few movies so hope to do more of that. Just want to keep doing Baker Boy rap, dance and live life to the fullest, be free.

Adrian Eagle

( )

Adelaide, SA

Meet this week's Feature Artist and Groovin the Moo comp winner, Adrian Eagle. He's currently on tour supporting Thundamentals and he's got a voice that'll melt that heart of yours. Check him out!

Read Interview

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

I've been working on my debut EP which will be out this year. I have been singing and writing all my life but never had the self-confidence to sing for anyone outside my family up until recently. I guess my sound came from my influences and my environment. It's a very natural feeling for me and I feel free doing it.

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

My greatest inspiration for making music is for healing my own mental health, through self-expression, and by doing what I love. I believe music heals. Also, for my family, my people who believe in me and for my goddaughter's...the next generation. I'm living on extra life and am thankful to be here.

What can punters expect from an Adrian Eagle live show?

People can expect me to sing straight from the heart. I really enjoy singing for people for the first time and connecting with them for the very first time during and after.

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

I think the best advice I've ever been given was to listen to my spirit and to do what you love. I'm not sure exactly who first told me this advice but it's been with me and grown with me ever since. I've had good advice from my Grandma and other role models throughout my years.

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

B Wise with 'The Key ' or 'Natural Woman' by Kaiit.

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

360's track "Tiny Angel" off his latest album. he's a great storyteller and express beautiful emotion on this track.

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

"Sally" by Thundamentals. Yeaaahh boy, such a banger - you gotta get down to this. I don't get tired of it.

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

Have bared witness to a lot of local gigs recently. Currently on tour with Thundamentals & B Wise at the moment across the country. They've been such a great vibe and I'm learning so much from them. It's good to see how many people come out to support local gigs and the Thunda's are amazing.

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

I'm constantly inspired by music and the community in Melbourne. I'm inspired by Neil Morris and his project DRMNGNOW. Neil has an amazing voice and message that I hope is heard across the country. He's got a song out now on his triple j Unearthed profile with myself and brother Philly called 'Australia Does Not Exist' and I hope you check it out. I'm also inspired and very excited for Kaiit's debut EP to come out.  I'm inspired by my beautiful friends and family. Inspiration is all around me. 

What are your plans for 2018?

I am currently looking forward to releasing my debut EP 'Wings' and am looking forward to sharing new sounds with listeners. This year is special to me with a lot of exciting things happening, thank you for being apart of it triple j Unearthed and triple j.

Hockey Dad

( )

Illawarra, NSW

Fuzzed-out surf pop duo Hockey Dad have capped off a huge year by winning our Falls Festival competition. You can catch these Leisure Coast legends on stage at Falls in Byron Bay this New Years Eve.

Read Interview

Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?
It's really hard to determine how we developed our sound, as it was never forced. The music we listen to would have to be an obvious influence, although I think being best mates for 13 years has really inspired us to to write songs that simply just feel natural to us. 
 
What’s your greatest source of inspiration for making music?
Our ridiculous tastes in music. We could be jamming out to Aretha Franklin, and a moment later we'd throw on some Beastie Boys and fire up. I think we've slowly become more open minded with the songs we listen to, which is cool. There's always something to take from every genre.
 
You’re the winners of our Falls Festival competition. What can punters at Falls in Byron Bay expect from the Hockey Dad live show?
Being regular punters ourselves, we've always been watching bands having the time of their lives at epic festivals, so we're unbelievably stoked to finally be having a dig ourselves! For the legends that come see us... you can expect blood, sweat and beers... sprinkled with cheeky grins and a few brand new songs!
 
What’s the best advice you’ve been given and who was it from?
When we were chilling with the Duniez fellas down the coast one weekend, Danny was chatting with us about the decision to not have a bass player. The one thing we remember from that night, was him saying "You guys just do what you want to do, don't worry about what other people want. As long as you're having fun, people will be diggin it." 
 
What Australian track would you play to cheer up someone who was crying?
Mylee Grace & Ozzy Wrong - 'Lady Lady Lady'. I don't think it's possible to listen to this song without smiling and bopping your head around. We're massive fans of their playful lyrics and overall vibe. Close your eyes and drift away to your own little world full of rainbows, watermelons and sunshine.
 
What Australian track would you play to someone to make them cry?
Bad Dreems - 'My Only Friend'. A real heartbreaker from a bunch of boofheads. Who said that true blue Aussie battlers can't be emotional? Sometimes we all need a Hi-Vis covered shoulder to lean on. 
 
You’re the DJ at a party. The dance floor is pumping. What Australian track do you put on next?
Midnight Oil - 'Beds Are Burning'. Fair dinkum, mate.
 
What was the last local gig you went to? How was it?
Our new mates The Moving Stills played at our managers bar in the 'Gong recently. It's so sick to see young dudes who are setting goals and are stoked to be playing shows. Keep an ear out for these legends.
 
Tell us about the bands or people in your local music community that inspire you.
Wollongong is becoming such a tight little community of musicians, it's epic. Pretty much it's just all about hanging with your bruzzies and getting stoked on each other's music. After all, that's what being in a band is all about.
 
What are your plans for 2015?
2015 will be purely dedicated to the All Aussie Adventures of Hockey Dad, which is super exciting. Other than recording our next release throughout January, then touring with bruzzies DZ Deathrays and legends Bass Drum Of Death shortly afterwards, it's all up in the air at the moment. Although I'm sure we'll keep writing songs, playing shows and frothing out.

Nerve

( )

Brisbane, QLD

Brissie rapper Nerve is your triple j Unearthed Feature Artist all this week. He's been busy making his mark in the Australian hip-hop scene and we can't wait for you to meet him. 

Read Interview

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

I guess it all started with old school hip-hop and learning how to produce, write and engineer music all at once. Now that I’m proficient enough at those things I’ve just been searching for what sound is unique to me. Lately I’ve been getting into really heavy hitting production involving a lot of distorted melodies and booming bass, but I’ve also been working with live bands like Bullhorn doing full reworks of classic UK grime. I’m very conscious of switching things up constantly and making sure I never stay in one creative spot for too long. My newest track 'A BOMB' is probably my favourite project so far. I feel like you can’t watch the A BOMB music video and think, “Oh yeah this guy just jacked this idea from _______ “ because I’ve never seen anything like it before. 

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

I grew up listening to a lot of funk, rock and jazz purely due to my parents’ taste in music. I think that’s where I got my ear for production from. Obviously I’m inspired by music to make music, but I feel like one of the biggest motivators in terms of songwriting is frustration. Music is a huge release for me when I’m stressed or have a lot on my plate and I’m usually at my most overwhelmed when I find my self writing new music. 

What can punters expect from a Nerve live show?

I ended my last show in Melbourne crowd surfing on an inflatable mattress with my feet on the ceiling so something like that I guess. 

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

I can’t remember who it was from - probably a few different people - but I think the most important thing in art and music in general is to create something and be someone that no one else can be. Be yourself and do your best not to copy what’s going on around you.

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

'A.O.K' by Adrian Eagle.

What Australian track would you play to someone to make them cry?
'The Wine Song' by The Cat Empire. Every damn time man.

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

I’d put on 'Jitter' by Triple One and Raj Mahal and turn the dance floor to a blood sacrifice.

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

As lame as it sounds, the last local gig I went to was my own in Sydney since I’ve been on tour for the last week. But alongside me were the Otherside Krew, Raj Mahal, Triple One and Talakai. All Sydney heavy hitters and part of our family. The vibe was insane and we sold the show out so I guess I could say it was a decent show.

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

A lot of my inspirations come from outside the music scene when it comes to Brisbane. I’m inspired by people that are throwing everything they’ve got into their creative passion and turning it into a viable business plan. People like Lil J’s Vintage, BrandnameBNE, Kyel Golly and anyone else that’s really about getting real things done are the types of people I roll with.

What are your plans for 2019?

Build within my crew - NO1NETWORK - and keep releasing music and visuals that blow people’s minds. Also try and finish my Uni degree.

Perth, WA

Get to know this week's triple j Unearthed Feature Artist, WA legends Spacey Jane.

Read Interview

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

We all come from different places musically so we weren't really predisposed to having a certain sound. When we started out we didn't have a specific genre or sound we were aiming for, but our playing styles eventually blended into where we're at now. Some of our shared musical tastes include Wilco, early Kings of Leon, Courtney Barnett, The Strokes, Pixies.

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

Caleb says a lot of his inspiration (especially lyrically) comes from processing emotions and life experiences. Music as a means of catharsis is something we can all relate to. When some feeling or abstract 'thing' hasn't been dealt with, song writing definitely seems like a great outlet for it. In a more general sense we're all inspired to keep making music because of how bloody special it feels to connect with other people through it. Be it with each other or our fans, it's real great.

What can punters expect from a Spacey Jane live show?

We try really hard to make our gigs a safe and inclusive space for everyone involved. When we feel like the crowd is being respectful and looking out for each other, we really give it our all. Also, lots of hair flips from Ashton. And sweat.   

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

One piece of advice that’s stuck with us was from a really great friend in a really great band that have had been killing it for over a decade now. It’s a simple one. He just said to ‘keep writing’. No matter what, always, always, always writing and creating. Can’t really fault it, and it’s always in the back of our minds. Thanks Will.

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

‘Catch My Disease’ by Ben Lee (thanks for reminding us that this exists).

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

Any of Julia Jacklin's tracks - namely ‘Don't Know How to Keep Loving You’.

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

‘Since I Left You’ by The Avalanches.

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

Jack Davies and the Bush Chooks put on a mini-festival for their EP launch, with a heap of great local bands. Jack is a very special songwriter and has a group of amazing musicians who are even nicer people.

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

Stella Donnelly is really putting Perth on the map internationally, and she's done a great job of promoting safe and inclusive gig spaces for everyone. She does an awesome job championing artists of all backgrounds at her shows here in Perth, and she's really brought up the standard of diversity to something the scene can be more proud of! Great Gable are one of Perth's hardest working bands, without a doubt. They've been at it for a little while and they're consistently on the up & up. It's awesome to see them succeed so much over the last few years, they're a bunch of awesome guys who kill it live & write great songs.There's a heap of other favourites that have always and continue to make Perth one of the best places to play & experience live music! Seriously WA music rules, and we wear the badge with pride.

What are your plans for 2019?

We're heading back into the studio to record what will hopefully become our first album! No promises there. It's just a lovely goal to have. We'll definitely be touring nationally at least once more this year, this time around has been too good to not repeat!

Read Interview

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

Honestly we’ve devolved our sound from being in a band for so long. It doesn’t seem like it because Millie has only just turned 18 but we’ve been a band for five years. A lot of trial and error and experiment has gone into crafting the sound we have now, and even then our new stuff is definitely moving in a different direction again! 

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

It’s a mixture of things, we love making music that people can dance and have fun too, so when we find that bass line or that groove or a sample that has something to it, we usually build our songs around it. Adding to this, the biggest inspiration when building these tracks is each other, it’s really nice to have five people who are all throwing around ideas all the time. Lyrically I think it’s hard to pin point, it’d be nice to say that we plan out out lyrics properly but most of the time it is kind of intuitive. You unknowing mumble out sentences that end up forming lyrics to a chorus or a verse. Life is absolutely mind boggling sometimes, in both good and bad ways, it kind of effortlessly provides that endless intuitive form of inspiration. 

What can punters expect from an Ivey live show?

We really pride ourselves on our live show, you can expect a lot of energy, dancing, jumping and tight hi-hats.

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

This will sound generic and boring, but it is honestly the best advice “stop comparing yourself to others”. I could tell you many people who have said this. But my dear friend Lachlan Jones from The Vanns used to reiterate this often. You can’t compare your music and your career to others, focus on your music and what you want to do and work hard. 

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

Parcels - Tieduprightnow.

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

#1 Dads Feat. Airling - God Can Promise.

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

North East Party House - Youth Allowance.

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

Dante and I went to Donny Love at Shark Bar last night and it was heaps of fun! That band are true staple of the Gold Coast Music Scene.

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

I guess most of the bands in the Gold Coast music scene inspire us, simply because it drives you to get better, perform better and write better. But special mentions to Lastlings who are absolutely killing it at the moment. Also shout to long time friends Peach Fur, our new friends The Oogars and Daste, all three are respectively amazing at what they do.

What are your plans for 2019?

We have been writing a lot of new music and have two new singles recorded already! The first one of these will be out sooner then you think....

Jaguar Jonze

( )

Brisbane, QLD

Get to know this week's triple j Unearthed Feature Artist, Jaguar Jonze.

Read Interview

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

Honestly, I guess it was a natural development of my multicultural background. I grew up listening to ballads on my mum's side, and country/folk music on my dad's side but then I would go and binge on alternative rock. So my sound just kind of evolved into this gunslinging, lamenting soundtrack which I use to show my personal emotions and adversities. 

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

I lost my close friend years ago, and he would always tell me that I needed to live life passionately. I didn't understand what that meant until he passed away. When he left, he left behind his soul in poetry, films, artworks and heartfelt letters. Although, I didn't grow up making and playing music, it suddenly became my way of dealing with the grief of losing him, and that's when I suddenly understood what he meant and I found my passion. Now, my greatest source of inspiration to make music is, that it keeps me sane and peaceful. 

What can punters expect from a Jaguar Jonze live show?

Well... I think the funniest write up I've seen is that the Jaguar Jonze live shows brings... "a manic stage presence, bending over backwards, writhing, crab-walking and altogether looking like she's possessed by some sort of musical devil." That sums it up pretty well, plus my band - Aidan Hogg, Joe Fallon and Jacob Mann are some of the most talented musicians and I'm super proud to have them by my side, they're a show on their own, but if you aren’t into manic possessed crab walking you can watch them instead haha. 

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

"The best revenge is success." I guess this year, I've dealt with a lot of misfortunes and it was so hard to try and keep getting back up when the environment around me was trying to continuously pull me back down. The advice was actually from a tinder match hahah but he had been seeing things on social media and we became good friends and that was one of the many pieces of advice he gave me and it stuck. I didn't want my trauma or other people's actions to define where I was going so that really helped keep me rolling. I honestly am so grateful and in disbelief about what I've achieved this year and the different places I'm in now. Like, the fact that I'm Feature Artist this week still blows my mind. ARGH THANK YOU. 

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

'Who The Hell Are You' by Madison Avenue.

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

'Into My Arms' by Nick Cave.

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

'Don't Call Me Baby' by Madison Avenue. I've used her twice, because she's just the medicine that you want to deny, but know it works.

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

It’s so lame because I've been on tour with Lime Cordiale and the last 3 shows were in Brisbane. On the last day we had 2 in one day, an all ages matinee and then an over 18s show. We were just lounging around in the green room when Lime Cordiale found out that 3 of the kids from the underage gig had missed out on the matinee show because they read their tickets wrong. So they put on a show just for these three kids. It was probably one of my favourite tour moments to walk into The Triffid and find Lime Cordiale doing a special show for these 3 kids that missed out. And I mean everybody was on board, including the monitor engineer, FOH, lighting engineer and obviously the whole band. It was so heartwarming, and we all cried in the greenroom afterwards once we realised how much it meant to those 3 kids and their parents. 

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

Actually the people in the Brisbane music community that inspire me the most at the moment are the ones behind the scenes. The sound techs, the guitar techs, the people who constantly work on their technical craft silently and then share it so generously to the bands who need it to put on these amazing shows. I don't know, I think it's something that I didn't realise was such a huge part of being in music until I started playing these bigger shows, I'm just so inspired by their wizardry.

What are your plans for 2019/2020?

We've just got touring left for 2019, I'm jumping onto the Hermitude Brisbane and Sydney shows this weekend to sing the Like A Version live, got another couple Lime Cordiale shows and a few festivals including.. FALLS FESTIVAL THANKS TO YOU GUYS UGHHHHHHH *animal noises*. But for 2020 it’s shaping up for an EP release, more singles and touring... abroad!!
