If time has taught us one thing, it is that Melbourne duo SCNDL deals in consistent dance floor destruction – no apologies or vowels required.The creative union of Tom Grant and Adam Amuso, SCNDL's bouncy yet highly-tuned peak time tendencies have made them a breakout force to be reckoned with on the global dance music radar in 2014. By the time their sophomore hit Gypsy had scaled the Beatport electro house top 15 and put them in the good books with the likes of Porter Robinson and Dada Life, SCNDL were one of the definitive stories of ascension to emerge from Melbourne, Australia, ground zero for the eponymous Melbourne Bounce contagion that's caused a revolution in Australian clubland and is now legitimately airbourne and spreading virus-like on a planetary level.A remix for breakout US star MAKJ's Hold Up saw the duo infect the Beatport Electro House top 20 once again, immediately leading to them being placed on watch lists with some of EDM's sharpest tastemakers.Bleed with fellow Aussie Timmy Trumpet emerged on North American imprint Monstercat in 2013, scaling the heights of the Beatport main chart (where it peaked at 12), and conclusively establishing their scientifically-engineered bass lines at world best practice level. With support accumulating from the likes of Tommy Trash, Chuckie, TJR, Tocadisco, Lazy Rich, Henry Fong and MAKJ, the duo ended 2013 with DJs and dance junkies alike craving their refined club getup amid a sustained international bounce blitzkrieg that's becoming increasingly difficult to ignore.So much so, gargantuan pop name Flo Rida came knocking, the result a re-imagining of his single How I Feel as a driving Melbourne Bounce juggernaut which is bound to signal their arrival on the world stage with a definitive sonic boom.Meanwhile back on home soil the duo simultaneously held down three spots in the ARIA club chart top 10, confirming their ability to dominate the club landscape on the home front while engaged in expeditionary assaults further afield offshore. In 2014, the word at camp SCNDL remains affirmative action on a global scale, with iconic club mega brand Pacha inviting them to curate their own regular night at their burgeoning Sydney outpost and designing a large-scale mega production uniquely around them. There'll also be an incoming single release with Robbie Rivera's Juicy Music imprint, new single 40 Thieves, an appearance at the Juicy Beach Party for WMC 2014 and a rumoured European and UK release for Bleed.This is the unapologetic face of low-end favoring dance music. Hold the vowels, take the plunge and prepare for the hell-borne sound of Melbourne.

Nick Drabble and Stu Turner are the guys behind the house inspired DJ/Producer project, Set Mo. The Sydney pair began crafting the Set Mo vibe in the early months of 2013 using their mutual passion for infectious housey grooves, deep disco sounds and banging club beats as their main drive. Their mutual goals made working together an easy task, while their individual tastes and complimenting skill-sets had their music-making process seem like it was simply meant to be. By the end of 2013, Set Mo had produced and released their first two singles, 'Keep On' and 'Still Waters,' both of which received national radio air-play as well as local and international website support. Set Mo continued to flourish well into 2014, with a string of club-worthy remixes, winning them the attention of the influential online music community inthemix, and being named in their 'Top 10 producers to watch in 2014'. Shortly after they were picked up by local label etcetc, just in time for the release of their debut EP, The Crush. With a continuous roster of tour supports and club gigs across Australia and Europe, along with an unrelenting schedule of collaborative creative projects with local and international artists, vocalists and musicians, Set Mo are paving the way for a strong future in the global dance music scene. Set Mo hit again in 2015 with a few massive releases that ended up propelling their names to the forefront of the Australian Dance Music scene. In the first half of the year, after returning to the studio from a week in Ibiza, Set Mo, with the help of studio-neighbour Deutsch Duke released a bronzed skin & golden beach inspired tropical house track called 'White Dress'. White Dress made it all the way to the top, earning #1 spot on Hype Machine & top 10 in the Aria Club Chart. It also put Set Mo on stride to join the elites of Aussie dance music. In the latter half of the year Set Mo struck again, this time with a track by the name of Chasing Forever, which was another groovy tropical house track, time with the assistance from soulful vocalist ALPHAMAMA. Chasing Forever became yet another track that was picked up both locally and internationally, adding to their string of recent hits. It also cast Set Mo out on their huge Chasing Forever national tour where they played 13 shows to their adoring fans - those of which who were rapidly increasing in numbers. It is no doubt that 2015 was Set Mo's biggest year to date and so we are beyond keen to see what they have in store for us next!

Sigala boasts an impressive early musical background, after learning to play the piano at 8 years old, he achieved grade 8 only a few years later. He spent his teens first listening to jazz, then the likes of Pendulum, Sub Focus, Fatboy Slim and The Prodigy. After he finished Westminster University, he spent a year or two in unsigned bands, before deciding he wanted to be in the studio, writing and producing for himself and others.After he finished university, the allure of playing gigs in unsigned bands on the toilet circuit was beginning to wear off and Sigala found himself wanting to be in the studio, writing and producing more and more for others. Fast-forward a mere eight months later and Sigala's ascent found him at Tileyard Studios, surrounded by all those artists that he adored as a student who are all residents there (Pendulum + Sub Focus). It was when he was asked to do a 37 th mix for a well-known artist that he decided to make a life change. Tired and frustrated he reached for a six-pack of Desperados (a tequila flavoured beer) and he turned on his computer to download an acappella of the Jackson 5's 'ABC'. It was then that the monster 'Easy Love' was born. Within a few days it had been picked up by Ministry of Sound.With digital streaming figures in excess of 300 million & worldwide sales reaching 2 million, Sigala's rapid rise has seen him become one of the most successful dance producers of the decade. His debut single 'Easy Love' debuted at No.1 in the UK, and is now certified Gold in both the UK and Australia. His follow-up, 'Sweet Lovin', stayed in the UK Top 20 for 12 weeks and has now gone Gold in the UK and Australia too. His most recent single, 'Say You Do',debuted at No.5 in the UK, making it Sigala's third UK top five single.Ahead of his debut Australian tour, Sigala now drops his biggest track yet, 'Give Me Your Love', featuring John Newman and Nile Rodgers. Bump 'Give Me Your Love' plus his other hits below.
Bloody Beetroots is Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo, the Italian producer born the same year as punk rock, a fact emphatically made clear by the "1977" tattooed across his chest . In fact, that tattoo is about the most identifying public feature of Rifo, whose penchant for wearing masks (see other cultural phenomena from Underground Resistance to "V is for Vendetta") seems to be a declaration of ominous anonymity that defers the spotlight to his long list of productions, projects, films, art, manifestoes and musical incarnations emanating from his Bloody Beetroots production epicenter: Bloody Beetroots DJ set where the decks-manning Rifo is joined by FX man Tommy Tea ; Bloody Beetroots Deathcrew 77 , his "electro-punk" band with drummer Battle and Tea capable of turning a gig for thousands of fans into a political rally/empowerment seminar, and in his forthcoming embodiment, Church of Noise , which is nothing short of a "cultural-musical movement," as Rifo calls it, with Dennis Lyxzen of Swedish hardcore punk-pioneers Refused and The (International) Noise Conspiracy. Bloody Beetroots has always been an anomaly amidst the cocooned trends and coddled pedigrees of dance music. After fits and starts in Italian garage-punk bands, Rifo launched Bloody Beetroots in 2007. Over the next three years, he would win the support of electro house heavyweights Etienne de Crecy and Alex Gopher in Europe, and Dim Mak's Steve Aoki stateside, with each production more elaborate and ambitious than the last.
How does it feel to be one of the bigger buzz acts in the country? Well you'd have to ask The Only and something tells us they'd say “it feels pretty fcking good, thanks". The Only's debut single The Only Fcking Rave Party landed in the ARIA Singles Chart Top 50, ahead of its official release and without any radio play. This atomic tune went on to hit #1 on the Australian Independent Music Chart and become the #1 Australian Artist Dance Single in the country. Coupled with their live show favourite 'Dancin' as the B-side, the single set up residence in the iTunes dance chart where it spent more than 6 months and established The Only as amongst the hottest new young electronic acts. With a grand entry such as that, it wasn't long before ears began pricking up all over the globe, with artists including The Bloody Beetroots, Chuckie, Tocadisco & Tiesto all reverently pushing The Only's sound. Steve Aoki has taken notice, including The Only Fcking Rave Party on his Sessions mix compilation. Steve Aoki has not only championed The Only worldwide, supporting their tracks in his DJ sets but quickly got them on board to remix for his Dim Mak record label. The Only quickly caught the attention of Ministry of Sound Australia who enlisted them to mix their Electro House Sessions 3 compilation. For their mix CD, The Only weaved together a daring blend of music from their favourite artists such as Fake Blood, Sub Focus & Vitalic alongside their own productions into an edgy & intense mix that saw the release hit #1 on the iTunes Albums Chart & #3 on the ARIA Compilations Chart. With such a reception to their debut mix compilation, Ministry of Sound didn't hesitate to invite The Only to mix Electro House Sessions 5. Taking this release in a more club focused direction, The Only showcased the sounds of Bassjackers, Zedd & Knife Party alongside the likes of M83 & Eric Prydz to deliver another chart success. When taking on a follow up single, rather than being intimidated by the thought of needing to back up the success of 'The Only F*cking Rave Party', The Only used the success to coerce their childhood heros and one of history's most infamous band's T.I.S.M back into the public to collaborated on (River Phoenix) The Hollywood Anthem. The result was a club smash that spent 6 weeks in the ARIA Club Chart Top 10 and was included on Ministry of Sound's 'In The Club Vol 3' compilation. In the studio The Only have lent their trademark sound to official remixes for artists including Dizzee Rascal, Armand Van Helden, The Subs, Lazerkraft 3D, Drop The Lime, Gtronic, Mighty Fools, Bombs Away & more. The Only's remix of GTronic for Dim Mak was featured on music bible RCRDLBL.com and found its way into the RCDLBL Top 10 for February 2011. Their Lazerkraft remix peaked at #1 on the Official German Dance Club Chart. Their remix of Bombs Away – Swagger has been included on 3 compilation CDs already in Australia and counting, including now being licensed across Europe & the UK. The Only's release Drag Me Down was their most mature song to date. A deeply personal song, Drag Me Down saw The Only transition from club starters to radio stars. Added to high rotation on Triple J, Nova nationally & video shows MTV, Channel V, Rage and Club V, 'Drag Me Down' was the highest selling single off of the Ministry of Sound Sessions 9 compilation. Drag Me Down's release also saw The Only embark on a 18 date national tour, their most successful to date. When it comes to touring, like everything else The Only, they have not taken the traditional approach. The Only are performers rather than just DJs and they are certainly not content to be like every other dance music act. As a result, The Only have established themselves as one of the most exciting new live electronic acts to emerge in Australia, earning places on leading festivals such as Big Day Out, Splendour In The Grass, Field Day, Groovin The Moo & Foreshore Festival and playing sold out club shows across the Australia. All this is from a band that has existed for less than 3 years. The future shows no signs of slowing down.
The Potbelleez’ back catalogue reads like a checklist of anthems for a generation of Australian clubbers and festival goers: Hello, From The Music, Shake It, and Don’t Hold Back. The trio’s 2013 & 2014 releases showed the group exploring what Goode calls “a bigger international sound”. “It’s still big, melodic dance anthems,” says frontman Ilan Kidron – a perfect description for the laser-kissed synth riffs of the APRA-nominated Saved In The Bottle, an EDM bomb that the group crafted with Erik Lewander from Swedish production team The Kennel while travelling across Europe.The drum’n’bass stylings of single Magic Number launched The Potbelleez into brand new territory. US hip hop legend B.o.B got wind of the demo they cut with Parisian producers Trak Invaders and called the group immediately – from his G4, no less – to get involved, eventually laying down what Kidron calls “one of the best raps I’ve ever heard”. The trio also logged studio time with Australian guns Kaz James and Bombs Away in 2013, and they’re not the only tracks still to surface. Their quest for a deeper sonic adventure in Europe in 2012 also produced studio concoctions with Norway’s Dsign Music and London collective Agent X. Stay tuned...It’s already been a big adventure from the band’s beginnings, when Goode and Sonic paid their dues in Sydney clubland with up to five DJ sets a weekend as they made their name between 2002 and 2007, including their legendary residency at Kings Cross hotspot Moulin Rouge. Their debut In The Junkyard EP dropped on Vicious in early 2007, and later that year, with Kidron on the mic, a little anthem called Don’t Hold Back took hold of festival dancefloors Australia and eventually the ARIA Singles Charts, peaking at #5. That double platinum seller was the first taste of their 2008 self-titled debut album, which they followed up with Destination Now in May 2011, preceded by platinum-selling single Hello. Their list of live performance credits speaks for itself – headline tours across Australia; festival slots for Stereosonic and Future Music Festival (among many more); and showcase sets at the Australian Grand Prix, NRL Footy Show finale, A-League Football Grand Final, an Australian Idol finale on the Sydney Opera House steps, and the Galaxy vs Jets game starring David Beckham in Newcastle. Ibiza also came calling in August 2011, with the band performing at Amnesia Nightclub for MTV UK at the I Want My MTV Ibiza shows alongside Snoop Dogg, Mark Ronson and Robyn.
After being shot into living rooms around the country in 2010, starring in ‘Beauty and the Geek’, The Twins were thrown straight into confidential and social pages across the country. Party girls Brooke and Ellie made clubs around world their playground, until they grew tired of being on the other side of the decks and ended up spending countless afterparties and kick-ons behind the mixer, trying to match, then top the DJs they partied with the night before.

In less than a decade, Timmy Trumpet has successfully transgressed from the international stage as an acclaimed Jazz musician to the realm of global dance music. Now as a combined DJ/Instrumentalist, he's ranked in the top 10 DJ's in Australia (ITM Poll), performed at Ibiza's Pacha and Miami's WMC, and mixed both Ministry of Sound and Pacha CD's featuring his own Aria Chart smash hit 'Sassafras'.

After developing perfect pitch at a young age, Timmy's progression into dance music has been propelled by his ability to effortlessly mix in-key, mastering the art of improvisation."After discovering Jazz I began to jam over everything and anything, mainly stuff on the radio. It wasn't long until I discovered house music, met a DJ, then played my first gig. I drove home that night knowing this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life." The Live DJ/trumpeter cross-over experiment proved a great success, providing the launching pad for a career in dance music. After landing a contract with legendary house label HedKandi, he jumped on board the next flight to the UK, which lead to touring & performing to record crowds at South Korea's Mass, Thailand's Full Moon Party, and playing alongside Erick Morillo at Pacha Ibiza. Armed with a pocketful of contacts, Timmy was determined to create a name for himself in Australia…Enter his next big break- The Stafford Brothers- who heard of his talents while touring in Ibiza. "They introduced me to the Australian market outside of Sydney, and I've learnt so much from them about music, business and life," Timmy says, attributing the brothers as good role models.

Head banging, unmistakable locks at large and fist in the air, Tommy Trash is not your stereotypical dance music icon.

Think you know Tonite Only? You might be well read on the individual careers of Tonite Only’s two super-powered creators Sam La More and Groove Terminator with both producers sporting impeccable club pedigrees as well as never-ending personal discographies. Or you may also know their previous work under the Tonite Only banner like Danger (The Bomb), Where The Party’s At and remixes for Princess Superstar and Sneaky Sound System which seemed to define Australian dancefloors back when the duo originally got together in 2005. But think again, because all that’s just a prologue to the Tonite Only of 2011.After moving on from the moniker at the top of their game when the “electro bubble” showed signs of bursting, Tonite Only has been reborn in 2011 with La More and GT joining forces once again to decimate club-goers and cram some extra lightning into their already overstuffed bottle.As you’d expect from such a high profile reunion, Tonite Only are coming back stronger than ever, re-energised and rebuilt with an arsenal of fresh productions and the same spark that made them so on-point originally. The first phase of the duo’s grand return comes with the turbo-charged electro-house burner We Run The Nite, a tune that struck its creators as instantaneously as it has club-goers on recent test runs around the world with La More insisting that it needs to be heard to be believed.“The way we describe it doesn’t do it justice...it’s got a lot of hooks in the wrong places and beats are way bigger than they should be but somehow it all makes sense on the dancefloor. Just ask the people losing themselves at the club when we play it; they think it works and that’s what we care about.”We Run The Nite is just the first step for what the duo are calling version “2.0” of Tonite Only, with La More and GT surging forth with plans to take Tonite Only out of clubs and onto massive festival stages with a eye-pleasing and ear-popping new live show. Speaking about their live future in hushed, reverential tones, the duo have declared that their debut live show has a concept that’s “never been tried before”, with ambitions to place it in front of “masses of people” at a festival like Coachella.While all that might seem like looking a little deep into the crystal ball, it’s a clear indication that the revitalised Tonite Only mean business. It’s two producers at the top of their game making the no-holds-barred kind of dance tunes that only they can and they’ll be infiltrating your ears in no time.
