This is the story of RÜFÜS. If you read this it is possible you will know more about the band than each of their own mothers. They do not protest. Their mothers love them and they their mothers. For they enjoyed unique childhoods; conquering the level 1000 Sudoku puzzles, counting grains of sand on tropical beaches, skiing down bitterly cold mountain tops in Sweden and fossicking for riches amongst Opal mines in Lightning Ridge.
They found each strapped for cash and escaping the elements one rainy Byron Bay evening. They decided to spend the night writing music. The next morning they had a song. In the following weeks they wrote more songs and started to like what they heard. It was time to put together a band.
Peter & The Magician, the exciting collaboration between scene heavyweights Yuksek and The Magician, have pulled another floor-destroying rabbit out of their hat, this time for Yuksek’s exciting new label, Partyfine. The EP entitled “On My Brain” is set to cause a storm on June 24th.
The fruits of their last exchange culminating in their ‘Memory EP’ last year left them hungry for more; their separate styles and influences have been harmonized yet again, giving birth to a huge three-track release to mark Yuksek’s second instalment on his new imprint. The pair organized another European rendezvous, mixing their styles and influences to feature as the second Partyfine release.

19 year-old Seattleite Peter Michel aka Hibou has just released a new track in the form of ‘Sunder’. ‘Sunder’ will be the first track off upcoming debut EP ‘Dunes’, which is out on June 13th.
Having spent a year touring North America and Europe as the drummer of Craft Spells (Captured Tracks), Michel felt his life with the band had ran its course, and began creating his own music. Hibou was born. You can download the track for FREE! All you need is your e-mail.
Kris released his first album ‘Idiosyncrasies’ in 2009, ‘Electric Horizon’ in 2012 and quickly followed by his remarkable all vocal album project ‘Features’. ‘Features’ included collaborations with Julian Hamilton from The Presets, the fabulous Miss Kittin, late Daft Punk collaborator Romanthony, House giant Robert Owens and German soul singer Xavier Naidoo.
The video just came out! I couldn’t believe what I was watching. Did I accidentally click the Breakin video. Nope. The entire video is composed of clips from old break dancing films. This took me back to my 8th grade break dancing club days. Not sure if the video goes with the song. Seems kinda lazy…
We encourage everyone to go and see these films in their original form:

We are happy to introduce Paces, an Australian artist, with his debut EP. The Pact features 3 originals and a remix from Melbourne newcomer W1SP. The title track, a ballad for the future-bass generation, features the heartfelt and mesmerising vocal prowess of uber-talented songstress Chela. If The Pact pulls at the heart-strings, then Love You Hate This, with it’s moody synths and stormy basslines, tears them right out. Last but by no means least is Ignite which, like its name professes, lights the fire within and spurs you into action, and is without question destined for dancefloor success. You can grab their EP over at iTunes
