SLUMBERJACK Their top 5 WA producers

Ahead of their big show at Metro City this Saturday, March 9, and the release of their upcoming Sarawak EP, Slumberjack have released 
the second track from the EP, a collaboration with TroyBoi called SolidThe EP was conceived and produced when the duo sought a respite from the relentless touring cycle they had found themselves in, and retreated to the natural beauty of Morgan’s homeland of Sarawak in Borneo. We got together with the WA electronic music heavyweights to get their take on who their top 5 producers in Perth to watch out for are. Keep an eye out for these guys… you read it first, right here, folks!

Favourite track by Silva would have to be Escape, he nails those organic sounding synths which we just love. There’s a ton of natural sounding dirt and grit in his music which really grounds it and makes it feel so much more tangible.

Oriental Cravings
These guys actually remixed our track Sometimes Love with Alison Wonderland and ever since they sent the first demo it’s been a staple in our DJ sets. They’ve got that knack for writing really catchy and hard hitting drop arrangements. Not to mention we love how they bring a lot of world music influence to their music.

Another Perth artist putting out some amazing, forward thinking tracks. He worked on a remix of an RL Grime’s Stay For It with the aforementioned Oriental Cravings which we’ve been playing at shows worldwide and it’s never failed to get the crowd amped to 110%.

After hearing the first song on Ukiyo’s Spotify, I was immediately hooked and had to listen through the whole repertoire. Very rarely, music is able to evoke this really unique feeling in me that can best be described as wind blowing past my face. It’s super uplifting and happy stuff, highly recommended.

Really impressed by the breadth of styles that MIIDDY is able to showcase in his releases – from chordal future bass to grimy rap production. He seemingly takes influence all over the place and puts his own unique spin on it.
