Soulection ambassador Mr Carmack is heading to Australia & New Zealand to seed his musical beats with a handful of stops including Sydneys HARDstraylia party that’ll see him play alongside HARD events boss Destructo, Clockwork, Oliver, GANZ and Stoney Roads DJs.
The Hawaiian based producer has been consistently creating and releasing beats with two consecutive #1s for ‘Best Selling’ albums on Bandcamp in 2013 while also earning support from RL Grime, GTA, Plastician and Djemba Djemba and also a release on Diplos free Jeffrees imprint.
His profile has grown drastically since his last tour downunder with Djemba Djemba in August last year with surely a more experienced set of fans this time around. More recently he deleted everything from his Soundcloud and re-uploaded just two new in a sign of… just not giving a fuck!

After the announcement of joining Alison Wonderland on her sold out Australian Warehouse tour, little Brisbane maestro Young Franco has bombarded us with an epic remix package that is full of swaaaag.
Having topped the Triple J Unearthed dance charts as well as receiving solid Aussie community radio support, Young Franco is the real deal through his own style of deep, house and electronic takes on the likes of Broods, Major Lazer, Kilter, Brooklyn and more!
A personal favourite of ours is his remix of Broods song ‘Bridges’ that is an uptempo house number with some super nice kicks and great vocal snippets.
Graffiti, pork Belly, pastrami, live shows, boat dives, champagne, girls and more is what Brooklyn based bigger than life rapper Action Bronson provides you with as he takes you through the ‘adventure times’ of his recent tours of New Zealand and South Africa.
The three part series is seriously entertaining as a ‘fly on the wall’ look over his last month on tour with Eminem and ghetto graffiti experience in South Africa (feeling a little Die Antwoord after watching episode 3) as he well and truly leaves his mark with one big ass tag.
If this snapshot of his time off between ’Blue Chips 2 mixtape’ shows and he’s constantly living that lifestyle, then we def helly jelly.
Hype Machine have released their latest ‘Ones To Watch 2014′ zeitgeist with Australian electronic groups making up a presentable chunk of the small but punchy list.
You could forgive yourself for having a chuckle at the situation as Australia’s two most thriving independents both earning inclusions with Future Classic’s electronic-swirl band Pananma happening to run alongside Mods’ groove-dance contribution to the sound with Movement. In the dance realms Australia was represented with Du Tonc, the pairing of Mighty Mouse and Matt Van Schie of Van She and more specifically their track “Darkness” which was unavoidable for any Soundcloud surfers.
The list was aimed to keep fresh and fair with good-guys Hypem excluding anyone who had graced previous zeitgeists and/or had released a full-length LP.
We revisited the list of most-blogged artists and removed any name that has appeared on a previous Zeitgeist or has already released a full-length LP. What remained were the extra-emerging acts—the ones who made a name for themselves last year (and likely no year prior), on the strength of a few tracks, maybe an EP, etc. The ones to keep an eye on. Hope you find this as fun as we did.
Other big hitters from the list without debut records included Banks, Bondax, Mø, Disclosures right hand man Sam Smith and arctic mystery SOHN.
