Over the years, urban culture has become ingrained in the social consciousness of Australia – impressively so. Respective breakdancing, music, culture and arts movements now have their own following, with breakout performers gaining the credibility that once might have eluded them. Bam Bam is one such artist; initially starting life as a 17-year-old breakdancer, he is now achieving critical mass - and rightly so. “Breakdancing was actually my first real profession,” chimes the youngster. “Back in the day, you really had to become a part of the culture. It wasn’t just becoming a rapper or a producer, you had to really be a part of the scene.” Likewise, having plenty of mates involved in the scene didn’t hurt either – “rapping, producing or whatever,” he says. “I started writing pretty hard but back then there weren’t a lot of people doing it. Then of course the scene grew really quickly and things sort of came together.” Fast forward a few years and we’re talking about performing and writing – all the things he’d initially only dreamt of. “360 was one of my best mates and he was focused on music and breaking and he took off and I was motivated as a result of that,” he admits. Musically, that lad got more and more involved – to the extent that last year, he completed two mixtapes that helped him make his mark. In turn, he suggests that more than anything it was about gaining momentum. “It’s something I’d always wanted to do but I also wanted to get out there a little – and I knew that it would lead to something more. In the meantime too, I’d been working towards an album but recently decided that I would turn it into an EP first – so I hope to get that out towards the end of the year. I have been working with awesome producers and other artists but music is a difficult and long process and I want to get the best product out that I can.” Lyrically, the lad claims the EP – and ultimately the album – will be an eclectic mix of content and other stuff. “Again, it’s what comes to me at the time,” he says. “There are things that happen to you in everyday life. Sometimes that stuff is good or bad or positive or negative; that’s the great thing about being an artist, you don’t have to follow rules. You end up just doing what comes naturally. I always just wanted to pick what represents

Has any dance fad ever outstayed it’s welcome moreso than twerking? I think not.

Fresh off the back of their Night & Day EP, Sigma are heading down to Melbourne. Cameron Edwards and Joe Lenzie aka Sigma have been making waves in drum and bass scene since 2007. Having gained support from Annie Mac, remixed Top Cat, Ms Dynamite and grime stalwart Skepta Sigma’s star seems to be on the rise. If they weren’t busy enough they have now added label owners to their resume with Life Recordings. With local support from Soulflex, Monkee, Lickweed, Rick Dirk, Switchstate and many more this night will turn Brown Alley into a drum and bass heaven. Make sure to head down to Brown Alley on Friday August 30.

Indeed, he goes on about not being drawn on a flavor-of-the-month type of scenario; for Bam Bam isn’t hell bent on reading the market, as it were. “I don’t approach my music with a plan specifically – to be honest,” he proclaims proudly. “I don’t even particularly want to come across differently from the next man. I make the music I want to make – I’m not sticking to a particular set of rules or sticking to a creative process or whatever. So however that sounds, whatever the end product is, then so be it.” He does admit though that he cares what people think. He continues with

this: “I’m making the music I hope people like.” Musically too, he finds the most inspiration and direction from within his own circle. “In the beginning, it was myself. Then Seth, 360 and Pez – we were hitting up these venues and we were rapping to the same people week in week out. We were doing it for the love and really, for our mates. We took turns getting up there and doing rhymes.” No less, he recounts how back in the day there was no real market for locally bred hip hop. But he gives praise to guys like Bliss N Eso and Hilltop Hoods, claiming they opened the door to a local market that has benefited everyone. “All of us are better off,” he chimes. “The artists, the fans – all the people that had dreams of doing music and stuck it out; their dreams have come true and it no longer has to be something that we just do on the side. So much so, that even with no real guidelines, it comes naturally. I have never wanted to conform and right now, I’m feeling like I don’t have to.” Finally, Bam Bam lets on about the upcoming Sprung Festival, which he admits feeling rather excited about. “It’s going to be awesome,” he explains. “I was there for the last two years and it wasn’t just an amazing lin up, it also had a great vibe. It was great to see so many people at a festival listening to just hip hop. The line up this year again is insane; so if last year was anything to go by the whole thing this year will be great. To date, Sprung has been one of my favorite ever shows – and for this year, I’ve got some things planned that will ensure people won’t ever forget it!”

me as an artist and I feel that I’m doing that. Even in a producer, I look for something different -whether it’s a jazz or rock vibe – anything can spark up inspiration,” he explains.

marcos cabral

Animals Dancing are returning with Marcos Cabral. A fixture of New York’s techno scene, Marcos Cabral has been working within Brooklyn’s electronic music community for longer than most of his peers. Beginning in the late ‘80s he’s tried his hand at playing hip hop, house and saw firsthand the ‘90s rave scene many never have. Curator of three labels, one half of duo Runaway with Jacques Renault, Marcos keeps himself busy on his ever evolving sound with a long list of Runaway releases and remixes. His False Memories LP is the initiation of Cabral’s more experimental side, blending industrial, noise and techno elements through delay and saturation in a 14 track compilation from various cassette tape recordings spanning the years of 1998-2000. Head down to Mercat Basement on Friday September 13.

Back for its second year, Twisted Audio’s Homegrown FreQs competition is back to discover Australia’s fresh and undiscovered talent. Teaming up with some of the most respected crews from around the country, Twisted Audio endeavour to give individuals a platform to showcase their talents and really get noticed. This year there will be five live regional heats in major capitals around Australia with each regional winner to be flown to Melbourne to compete in the national final. If you think you have what it takes submit your mix to the Twisted Audio before Saturday August 31.

john “00” fleming

Darkbeat and Sunset are joining forces once again to bring you the next instalment of the JOOF Editions with the legend himself: John “00” Fleming.

trancegression

heavy innit

The Heavy Innit crew have been pushing the sound of the UK underground in Melbourne fervently and they’re about to celebrate their fifth birthday. To celebrate they have brought together a massive lineup of local producers, MCs and one of the freshest international acts going around, Wen. Having scored support from DJ Blackdown on Rinse FM for his exceptional production, Wen has found himself a the forefront of new wave grime that has rekindled what was considered a dying genre. Make sure you get down to Mercat Basement for the celebrations on Saturday August 24.

A celebration of 300 shows of Trancegression on Kiss FM will see a huge show with four international acts. Manuel Le Saux has made a name for himself by championing the sound of euphoric trance across Europe, becoming known for uplifting trance and his vast list of productions and remixes. Darren Porter will join him, being one of the UK’s most recent exports in trance, making his presence known in the EDM scene with chart topping tracks like Springs Scent and Daytona, after receiving support and recognition from the likes of Sean Tyas and Aly & Fila. They’ll be joined by Gareth Weston whose tracks Hell Raiser and Checkmate are considered seminal. With support from local talent Johnny L, Pinkque, Pepe Medrano, Dave Disley and James in the trance main room this will be a celebration not to miss. Make sure to head down to Glenferrie Social on Friday September 13.

demarco

An accomplished producer and musician, Demarco emerged as an artist with his seminal singles Fallen Soldiers and Duppy Know Who Fi Frighten. His unique dancehall reggae sets him apart from his peers making a name for himself with his versatility and refined talent. He embodies a new age of cutting edge artists, whose ability to intertwine song writing with music production, engineering, and performing and whose capacity to use these skills seamlessly between dancehall, roots reggae, hip hop and R&B puts him in constant demand. Head down to The Espy to see him live on Saturday September 7.

words / joshua hayes Perth beat maker Reggie ‘Ta-ku’ Matthews is on the verge of big things, with international buzz, co-signs by the likes of Diplo and Baauer, and his full length debut on the horizon. Released within days of each other, Matthews’ most recent efforts demonstrate his range as a producer. DoWhatYouLove, a collection of soulful instrumentals put out on vinyl by German label Jakarta Records captures the essence of Matthews’ J Dilla inspired beat making, while ReϟWrk Vol.II finds him exploring trap, two-step and juke music on a series of dancefloororiented remixes. “They’re both different spectrums of what I produce. They both came out at the same time so it was a bit interesting to see what would happen, but both were really well received, so I’m happy about that,” Matthews says, noting that he had recently decided to rename his ReTwerk series. “I’m actually not too comfortable with me naming it that anymore, so I’ll change it.”

My best memories of Darin McFadyen are those photos of him puffing on a cigar, sporting a massive head of dreadlocked hair. But I haven’t forgotten about his unflinching ability to rip the dance floor a new one with his twisted beats, bass and breaks. And don’t bet on a single genre at any of his shows either – it might be electro, or breaks, some dub, even reggae or hip hop. Indeed, this man has changed little over the last one and a half decades; for he is still about delivering the best experience possible no matter the venue or location. In 2013 he explains that as always, he is moving into a new direction and presenting a different take on the FreQ Nasty experience,

The two records come halfway through a busy, and productive, year for Matthews. April saw the release of Bricks & Mortar, a record featuring one side produced by German beat maker Suff Daddy, and the other side produced by Matthews, which was supposed to be released in conjunction with a limited edition sneaker designed by Highs And Lows (although supplier issues meant that the shoe has been delayed until September). Matthews says the idea for the record came out of a chat he had with his friend Matt Thomas, co-owner of Highs And Lows, and email conversations with Suff Daddy, who produced his half while briefly living in Sydney. Meanwhile, an older album with Raashan Ahmad, recorded during the Crown City Rockers MCs 2009 Australian tour, has just been released by Jakarta Records as a free download and limited vinyl pressing, and Matthews’ next EP Songs To Break Up To, is due in the next month or so. Despite his prodigious output, Matthews’ daily routine involves only an hour of making music – often right before he goes to sleep around one or two am. These nocturnal habits impact his sound. “Night time, for me, is a time when I’m at my most relaxed, I’m at my most reflective. Things are winding down. It’s not as stressful as during the day,” he says. “I used to be a student back in the day, and if you’re a student, you’re a night owl pretty much for the rest of your life.” Growing up, Matthews listened to whatever hip hop was popular on the radio, but was gradually introduced to acts like A Tribe Called Quest by friends. Two songs ultimately inspired him to begin dabbling in production – J Dilla’s Fall-N-Love (from Slum Village’s Fantastic, Vol II) and Souls Of Mischief’s 93 Til Infinity. “When I listened to [those tracks] when I was growing up, I was like ‘man, who produced this? Or how do you produce this? Where do you get these sounds? Is this a sample? If so, how do you sample?’, so, those [songs] really ignited my curiosity and got me going,” he says. Since attending the 2008 Red Bull Music Academy in Barcelona, he has been building his name internationally with a series of acclaimed releases, including 24 for Californian record label and radio station Soulection, and his tributes to late artists that have inspired him, 50 Days For Dilla and 25

Nights For Nujabes. The accolades are piling up, with Diplo and Baauer including his music on their Endless Summer playlist and Rinse FM mix respectively, a production credit on Drapht’s recent single Tasty, and high profile remixes for Flume and Hermitude. One thing Matthews hasn’t done yet, though, is release his official debut album. (He says that he considered his numerous digital releases and handful of vinyls to be ‘passion projects’.) However, it is in the works, and looks set for an early 2014 release. “It’s going to be different, but still similar to what I make. It’s got a few features on it, and I plan to do it really big,” Matthews says, before adding that he can’t really talk about the project. “It’s something I’m passionate about and it will be a culmination of all the styles I’ve done.” Although a properly promoted debut album – one that an artist with Matthews’ worldwide buzz would be capable to receiving – has potential to do big things, he isn’t particularly interested in fame or touring. “It’s something that I don’t really want to analyse too much,” he says. “It sounds clichéd… but I just want to do it for the music, nothing else. I’m not a touring artist; I’m not someone that likes to be in the spotlight too much. I just want to make music and put it out. An artist can be that in this time. In the age we’re living in, you can just release music and there’s an audience there. You don’t necessarily have to be out and about and meeting industry people all the time,” he adds. “I don’t particularly like the club scene, but I love listening to music and locking myself away. Even travelling and listening to music in my headphones. It’s a very personal relationship, music and I.”

describing it as ‘an opportunity to step back to step forward.’ He is also enjoying work on the Dub Kirtan All Stars releases – a live band project that pushes new boundaries musically. We even reminisce for a moment about my favourite piece of FreQ output – his Fabric 42 release. He says harking back: “Ah yes, I remember. I even recall getting the call to do that mix! It was a great moment. Fabric is a real part of dance music history and culture. It’s done a lot for me and it has always been a great way to highlight the artists coming out that weren’t necessarily known for a particular style of music, if that makes sense?” For Darin though, it has almost always been beats and breaks – or variations on that theme – he’ll even go out on a limb and term it ‘good bass music.’ But that doesn’t change the fact that a party with him as a headliner is a riot – and generally not something you can stand around having a chin stroke to. “Things are always happening in electronic music and now much more so than ever before,” he says. “Genres are so constricting in terms of what they force you to do. One of the things about breaks and reggae and dubstep is that it’s always been nice to showcase newer forms of music when you play without feeling too restricted.” “I think for a start as well, music is cross pollinating a lot more that ever before. Sounds from any given genre – that maybe used to define a genre – are now becoming so mixed up that you have trance and hip hop and electro in any style. I thought at first it was crazy, but then you get used to it and find that it works. The sounds that used to be unique to a certain genre broke down a long time ago - and then the tempo switched up a lot

and then 138BPM became average and 140BPM became dubstep and now all that stuff can sound pretty similar depending on who plays it or when or how, you know?” What it has meant too is that people are getting into the music because it’s diversifying and opening the floodgates to more and more open minded punters. And Darin thinks the same: “I agree, I think it’s great that the audience is discovering new music. People are beginning to understand the music and the culture and so much more; I think it’s fantastic for the scene in general. Likewise, what can fans expect from his forthcoming shows? Musically, they can certainly expect the unexpected - a cacophony of sounds and styles designed to make you do one thing – dance. Leave the attitude and the door but don’t forget to check your jacket. You won’t need it.
