With a love for heavy Jamaican-inspired rhythms and a strong sense of melody and songcraft, Kingfisha’s music is irresistibly soulful. Having firmly cemented their position as one of Australia’s finest dub/reggae acts, the 6-piece band has joined forces with Westwood Recordings to produce a remix EP of their favourite selections from their self-titled 2012 album.
Over two years since it’s release, their debut album has won over fans around the world, picking up multiple awards and being added to full rotation on national radio stations such as Australia’s Triple J. Now, in May 2015, their album will take on a new life with Westwood Recordings calling upon some of their leading electronic music producers around the globe to re-imagine the bands intelligent lyrics and signature musicianship – breathing new life into their songs with the addition of a heavy electronic backbone.
The 2015 Kingfisha Remixed EP features remixes from:
Ed Solo (UK), The Funk Hunters (CA), JPOD (CA), Odjbox (UK), Crazy Daylight (AUS), Beat Fatigue (NL), and Flavours (CA).
After a whirlwind season of tour dates and critically acclaimed new music, the aquatic funk master named Orphic needs little introduction .His new 3-track EP is a time machine gone awry, containing his well known track that helped him win “The Untz Challenge” and now there’s more fresh jams to satisfy your must-have dance music playlist.
The first track, “Toppling Tortoise,” shows a refined side of Orphic’s sound, diving into some thick wobbles complemented by a diving frenzy of groovy breaks. Each track has a very distinct flavor. “Kaleidoscope Jazz” is has a beautiful retro melody that appeases any classic rock fan with a vintage piano lead that takes off the edge and then gets funkified, dropping into some spacey electronic waves of feel-good saxophone. The final track is already well-known, “Joggle Hopper,” which was chosen as the top track by the Untz in their Challenge contest that landed Orphic on dozens of tour dates this year. It’s a fantastic tune that never gets old, incorporating a variety of elements including a twangy guitar bassline and bouncy!
Monista brings some artilery to the table with his lastest release “For Mass”This one went straight to the “party” playlist -infectious party starting grooves combined Intricate Synth work and staunch bass lines. Featuring plenty of live instruments and some wonderful vocals throughout.

“Event Horizon” is the first track here and it’s a must-hear tune for any fan of glitch hop.

Few tracks in EDM merge dubstep and glitch hop together better than the second track, “Tesseract,” which flows with melty wobbles into a progressive space burst. Even the transitions in this track sound like time warps and chaotic change-ups.

The journey starts with “Slug Life,” which some tasty, retro-sounding synth chords and a ridiculous mash of melodic glitch and gritty disco. The second track oozes into a hip hop vibe with “Slug on the Town,” reminding everyone of the West Coast beats we all know and love. “Kent the Slug” weaves in and out sample chopping and weird electro builds, flowing into another funk jam that lasts over 5 minutes and 20 seconds of gripping drops. The final track is the most experimental, extraterrestrial midtempo track on the EP – filled with interesting sounds. Listen now and grab these tunes!
