-- About the Artists --
* WAVE RACER *
Twenty One year old Tom Purcell is WAVE RACER – a 64 bit freak speeding into the Sydney horizon.
Taking cues from cross-continental club sounds and gold-plated production standards, Purcell’s blend of pixelated future-funk is fast taking Australia by storm. From mind-bending Jersey Club anthems to a sun-drenched take on modern Hip Hop instrumentals, his sound is often (and best) described as driving down Mario Kart’s Rainbow Road to the club of your dreams.
Having just released his double-A side single ‘Stoopid/Rock U Tonite’ and a bootleg remix for Ghost Town DJs ‘My Boo’ Wave Racer is now amongst one of the most played artists for 2013 on popular Australian national broadcaster Triple J whilst frequently appearing on BBC Radio 1 and topping the indicative Hype Machine charts at #2.
With a slew of forthcoming remixes set to blow you out of the water, we strongly advise you to keep one eye on this turbo maniac at all times. Get ready to ride the .wav!
* TRIPPY TURTLE *
Trippy was born on a cold beach somewhere in northern europe. From an early age he was exposed to beautiful skinnydipping scandinavian women and rnb-music on wack boomblasters, influences you can still hear in his music today. And the charming young tortoise quickly became a true ladies turtle.
* DJ HOODBOI *
Little is known of the mysterious DJ Hoodboi. Appearing randomly on the internet less than a year ago, Hoodboi is already being hailed as one of the leading Jersey Baltimore Club producers of this year. During his recent rise to internet fame, DJ Hoodboi has received support from the likes of ATrak, Cashmere Cat, Chromeo, Trippy Turtle, Ryan Hemsworth, DJ Sliink, Taku, Wave Racer, Alison Wonderland, Djemba Djemba and many others. Last fall, Mad Decent premiered one of his most notable mixes via Soundcloud. Since then, many a Hoodboi classic has been played on BBC Radio 1, Triple J and RinseFM. With more surprises on the way in 2014, DJ Hoodboi’s future looks bright and filled with emojis.
* LAZERDISK *
Lazerdisk is none other than a high-speed joyride in the vortex of space-time continuum - seeped in the depths of bass, funk, and disco spliced with organic-analog audio waves and digitized techno. Their sound straddles the blurred lines of mainstream pop and underground abstracts, perfect for the ultimate audiophile, yet accessible to the average bystander. Their growing discography of music is comprised of early 80’s funk and RnB combined with soulful classic hip-hop boom-bap beats all cooked up in a crock pot left on for 24 hours. Lazerdisk is comprised of Chad Bechard and Zack Johnson. The two were rather popular DJs in their hometown of Burlington, Vermont who met by chance in the beginning of 2010; and soon found themselves playing on the same bill more than once. They immediately clicked, noting their instant connection through a similar taste in music, which led them to join forces in April of 2010.
