Well over a decade into the journey of actively spreading their musical message, Aviram Saharay, Itai Spector and Matan Kadosh have clearly made it their life mission to live and breath music. Catching the lads at the airport in Switzerland, we get the low down on what’s been happening for the trio. “Things are going really great,” explains Matan. “We are on our way to do a couple of shows in Brazil, so things are going really well for us. I can definitely say it is one of the best years we have ever had,” he professes proudly. Indeed, growing up together in a small city named Afula, in the north of Israel, Matan was already making a name for himself as a DJ from the tender age of just 16. “I met Aviram, we had already experimented with the idea of making music,” explains the second member of the crew, Itai Spector. “We sort of all started to play around with the idea of making music and when we came to Matan to get a little more experience and expertise, he just loved the potential of what we showed him,” he says. And with that, the lads afforded themselves the opportunity to sit down in order to make some tunes together. “The first tune we did that way was also our first tune released,” chimes Matan. “The track was called Soap Bubbles. To be honest, we were very excited to have been able to release the first song we had produced,” he says. “In Israel, there weren’t too many bands that produced their first song and got it released onto CD. I guess some things were just meant to be,” Matan says, as he giggles in jest. And with the ps-trance movement continuing to tear things up in their native Israel, the boys remain as motivated as ever to continue pumping out tunes. Aviram continues with the gossip: “these days, the scene in Israel is just on fire. There are huge raves as well as a lot of clubs and a really good variety of outdoor parties that help people totally get inside our culture. Like any movement though, there are always ups and downs – especially between
styles – and when one scene gets smaller, another gets bigger and better in another place. It’s not something that familiar to us, but we’ve been making it happen like that during the 12 years we have been around in the scene.” Musically, the lads are excited about being in the final phase of wrapping up their next full-length release - and they plan to deliver the output sometimes towards the beginning of next year. “We always try to push ourselves forward,” says Matan, “but we never
forget about the Sesto spirit and happy vibes. I really think our true fans will love our new album,” he professes. Continuing on, he adds “we always like to share our studio with good producers and collaborators; you can learn something from

almost anyone if you really want to. But if I had to pick one name, it would have to be Daft Punk; these guys are just so funky, we love them. For us though, we’ve always done what we think is good electronic music with some psy elements – and always in the belief that if you do good things, the rest will follow. We don’t like to limit ourselves with words or genres or styles; we think that as musicians, firstly, you need to be loyal to yourself and to be free to do what you feel is right, without letting any rules stop you from doing that. We are also committed to working hard and non-stop. As musicians, you have to reinvent yourself and your music, while staying true to what people loved about you in the first place. You have to stay active while touring the world. If it’s a huge party or a small party, your music needs to be heard.” So between being on the cusp of their 30s and enjoying the odd rave party or two in between drinks, the lads also enjoy spending the time that they’re not travelling in the studio. And with that, they are heading back to Australia to hit up the Earthcore festival one more time with a fresh batch of studio tracks and edits. “We’ve played at that festival before,” Itai jumps in. “We’ve been to Australia many times and we love it there. You can expect the very best from Sesto Sento. It will be a party full of good vibes, happy music and completely epic moments. We look forward to seeing you all there.”
My greatest is fear is that one day I will be locked in a room, The Rains of Castamere will start playing and people will bring out guitars.

dj quik and kurupt rampa and james silk kazbar
It’s been quite a ride for Rampa over the last couple of years. When it comes to DJing, he never really cared about the diehard dedication to the four to the floor-aesthetic, one can find among most Ttchnoheads. He preferred to be diehard dedicated to a whole lot more, be it punk rock, be it hip hop, be it any other suitable outlet for his genuine passion for music. He’ll be joined by James Silk at onesixone on Friday September 27.
Considered to be two of the West Coast’s biggest icons, Quik and Kurupt have retained such a formidable position by staying at the forefront live hip hop. Quik was recently named the Number 1 West Coast Producer in the history of hip hop ahead of Dr. Dre, DJ Muggs and The Alchemist by LA Weekly. Quik’s longtime collaborator and friend, Kurupt is by no means less celebrated, as an integral part of the Death Row Records family, as one half of Tha Dogg Pound with Daz Dilinger and as a Grammy nominated solo artist. Make sure to head down to Billboard on Friday October 18.
pále quantized music
Quantized Music has again delivered what it does best: upfront, dance floor focused deep house. Pumping and melodic, Dirty Urban comes to life by returning producer Kostas Georgoudis and co-owner of Quantized Music, Lex. The duos creation brings light to that rare summer shaker as three unique remixes only expand on the originals ability to move our body. Alongside the serene vocals of Danish singer Wiveca Hartmann, the EP screams talent on all levels of creativity. Funky and full of deep delight, the original mix of Dirty Urban combines melodic bass and whimsical percussive groove that creates an overall aura of warm summer beats. Wivecas vocals hit the groove on time, adding a humanistic element to an otherwise brooding dance floor bomb. Nikolas Gale provides a jazzy rendition with his mix, perfect for opening the floor or sunset at one of the many beach parties to be held this year. His use of clarinet harmonies calls attention to a smoky house tune with Eastern European flair. Next come three stellar remixes. The first is a glamorous and spacey rendition by French talent Damien Raud. Now a new member of the Quanitzed family, Damiens debut EP will be the next release from the imprint. His remixes leaves much to anticipate from his EP as soaring pads and clunky cowbells paint a picture of organic fun. After his successful debut on Quantized, Softcash is back contributing what he knows best, perfectly tuned and arranged house music with subliminal notes of classic swing. Finally, another new name on the Quanitzed catalogue, Elias Kazais works Dirty Urban into a pumping and straightforward mix that eventually strips down into a bass jacking monster. Covering all sounds that are currently making waves in club land, Quantizeds newest EP again shows their ability to cultivate fresh and consistent sounds.

UK beatmaker Pále is making his debut trip to Australia. When it comes to young producers making a name for themselves, Pále is at the top of that pile. With xlr8r backing his production and more specifically his use of synths and vocals in his inimitable style, the 19-year-old appears to be one to watch. With an upcoming set for Boiler Room where he’ll play alongside Bonobo, Pále’s star is only set to rise. Head down to Boney on Sunday September 29.
Known as The Baron of Techno, a title bestowed upon him by BBC Radio host, John Peel, Dave Clarke is set to return to our city in a time when techno is on the rise again. A hard working purist, forward thinking futurist, technology geek, part Gothic and gadget lover who embraced the digital revolution in an early stage while his peers were lording over vinyl - a format he hasn’t used professionally in 11 years. A digital pioneer, Clarke was the first techno artist to release an internet only single in 2000 despite receiving criticism for being a futurist. His main motive was, and still is, to deliver music to the ears of his global audience oblivious to pigeonholes, politics, prejudice or other people’s opinions. Catch the legend at Roxanne on Friday November 1.
david august and john tejada
David August has come from producing house anthems circa 2010 to now being regarded as one of the key tastemakers of our time. His ability to create melodic, electronic music that grasps its fingers around the very depths of your emotions is no easy feat, yet he does it so effortlessly. Joining him will be John Tejada who’s music can only be described as an unexpected synergy between classical training, expressive rock and synthetic played against non-synthetic rhythm. Make sure to head down to Brown Alley on Friday November 22.

Having come together in 2010, our local boys from Canberra, Adam Hyde and Reuben Styles, reminisce about the water that has passed under the bridge since the early days: “I pretty much started out listening to my dad playing Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix records around the house,” explains an eloquent and circumspect Adam Hyde. “With Rueben in bands and things, I kind of dabbled with the guitar and then progressed into hip hop - which I’m a little embarrassed about,” laughs the proud youngster. “I was making these terrible beats on Garage Band on the computer and then ran into Reuben who was doing pretty well with his band Rubicon at the time,” Adam says. He explains that as the lads turned 18 and got a taste of the club scene, later becoming somewhat obsessed with it’s energy and vibe, they decided to start producing. “We got our hands onto Reason software and Reuben covered off on that really quickly. Then we bought some really crappy $50 decks and started jamming on those; we didn’t actually learn to DJ on them; it was when we got to DJ at the club we were told that if we couldn’t make people dance, we’d lose our jobs.” But dance they did and the people came – and continue to do so. It didn’t hurt them either, releasing tracks like The Way You Are and Feels Like, both of which have gone on to become bona-fide smash hits. “Musically, we decided when we started out writing electro and even more funky stuff – and then pondered some of the stuff we were producing now - we’ve evolved onto a sort of indie tip Maintaining that broad appeal without being pigeonholed then appears to be their very raison detre. “And as well as that - more than anything, we are just music lovers, 100%,” chimes Adam. “Between the two
wo rd s / to m k i t s o n of us, we spend so much time listening to and appreciating music. I love getting inspiration for the music we write from everywhere. I have to admit though, we don’t necessarily listen to the sort of music we create – for example, I’m getting into cheesy hip hop like 2 Chainz; and I’m constantly on the lookout for new music; I’m always browsing through blogs and trying to seek out inspiration in order to find new ways of doing things.” Finally – and lets be frank - the lads are about to hit the big time. Not only are triple j supporting them heavily, but Big Day Out has invited them along to their annual music-fest – amongst some rather big names - and they are super pumped. “Yeah, we’re both really, really excited,” says Adam. “We’re working hard on a really cool visual show with lots of props and fun stuff on stage. Hopefully, we can bring Gareth, the new character from our film clip onto the stage as well and have a bit of a laugh – it’s going to be a good, sweaty time. A lot of the crews playing at this gig are our favorites – groups we’ve both followed for a long time. To be giving something back, being at the other end as it were, that’s a really rewarding feeling. We’re both completely stoked to be honest.”
Peking Duk will play at Anyway at The Palace this Saturday September 21. soundcloud.com/pekingduk
As he prepares to head our way for the first time, breakthrough LA producer Valentino Khan wants to “do everything and do it well.” Khan’s work with Diplo on the twerk-worthy track Bubble Butt last year has seen him go from remixer to headline performer – a result of hard work, dedication and a whole ton of talent. “This is my first time visiting Australia, so I’m excited to be kicking it off with a tour of my own,” he says. “Perth is my first stop so I’m definitely going to go hard. I’m bringing a bunch of unreleased stuff from my own library and some amazing tunes from my producer friends. “I tend to play across a number of genres so you can expect to hear a bunch of crazy different sounds throughout the night.” Utilising the same creative spark he finds when producing, Khan is inspired by discovering new sonic territory. “I think it’s really cool when you make something unexpected that sounds great,” he explains. “That could mean taking an artist’s sound and making it unconventional or approaching a remix and steering it in an entirely new direction. I think if you produce a track that’s leftfield but organically sounds good; you’ve done a good job moving music forward.” The success of Bubble Butt has led to more opportunities as he progresses his sound from early hip hop influences towards dance music-centred ideas. “I think the fact that the song has been getting a lot of radio airplay is significant for me,” he says. “I knew the song would have appeal and people would gravitate
towards it because of the hook, but to see it have commercial success is remarkable.” Khan was drawn into producing after being influenced by the impressive work of hip hop producers such as Timbaland, Dr. Dre and The Neptunes. “I started producing hip hop as a teenager and then eventually evolved into dance music after I heard Waters Of Nazareth by Justice. I think I’ve stuck with it because dance music gives you the freedom to literally create whatever you want and it’s always refreshing to be able to sit down and produce something that’s as crazy as you want it to be.” Grateful to his hometown for its bountiful creative opportunities, Khan chats about the hard work required in order to have a career in the industry. “I’ve said many times before that being born and raised in LA definitely has an advantage as far as starting a career in music,” he explains. “Living in a particular city can give you a leg up, but you have to perfect your craft. At the end of the day, your music now lives on the internet so you can blow up no matter where you live. “I want to do everything and do it well – it’s a lofty goal to set out, but I think I’d honestly be bored if I made the same thing over and over.” Valentino Khan will play at Laundry Bar this Saturday September 21. soundcloud.com/valentinokhan
