The latest from Rec Studios

Charlie XCX & Mø

While in town for the Sia tour, these musical BFFs dropped into REC to record an episode of Charlie’s “The Candy Shop” radio show. The pair talked tour after parties and their favourite late night boogie tracks.

The episode is out today, and you can catch it on Apple Beats1.

After the show Mø stuck around, working into the early hours on a tune from her forthcoming record.

Mø has just released a track called Get It Right with Diplo and Charlie XCX is touring in support of her own new album Pop 2.

What So Not

All eyes are on his label Sweat It Out as we await a release date for the debut album from the young Aussie producer.

Much of the record was mixed at REC in December with Cassian in the co-pilot seat, fresh from mixing RÜFÜS DU SOL’s Aria award winning Blood album. The sneak-peek we have heard can only be described as red hot.

What So Not is currently on a massive world tour spanning through to April. The lead track Be Okay Again is out now.

Kilter

This past year the 24-year-old producer/percussionist extraordinaire has taken up residency at Rec Studios to work on his debut LP (with a number of artists including Lanks, Woods and MOZA) which is finally out June 9.

Kilter has quickly transformed from a young, aspiring producer to a multi-instrumental electronic-lord, with a collective audience from all corners of the globe. Recent singles “They Don’t Know Us” and “Count On Me” have received triple j rotation, nods from Rolling Stone, and millions of streams online. As a remixer, he’s received calls from heavy hitters like ODESZA, M , Duke Dumont, Rufus, Hermitude and London Grammar to rework their singles.

Update: You can listen to Kilter’s debut 13 track album here.

Kučka

You may have had the chance this month to witness the raw talents of Perth singer/electronic-producer Kučka as she performed live with Flume on his national stadium tour. In between dates she has been camped out in the Rec Studios writing rooms, working on a bunch of new material.

Her debut seven track release “Unconditional” blew up on Spotify streaming into the millions before getting the call up to front the tracks “Smoke & Retribution” and “Numb & Getting Colder” on the new Flume album.

Joined by her tour buddies, Vince Staples, Kia and Ngaiire, the all star line up did their own take on Ghost Town DJs classic ‘My Boo’ with Flume for Triple J’s “Like A Version” series earlier in the week, you can check it here.

Polish Club

Our favorite lo-fi duo returned to Rec Studios earlier this month to track the follow up to their self-titled EP that has been making waves across the globe this past year.

The former Triple J Unearthed winners have had the amps dialed to 11, with engineers Tom Garnett and Nick Franklin on microphone duties. The pair live tracked a swag of new material for a tbc release in early 2017.

Missed the Polish Club band wagon? Dip your toes into their world with our fav jam Beeping, which features a video assembled completely frame by frame from an office photocopy machine. Check it out here.

Keep in touch with their summer tour dates here.

Travis Scott

As Listen Out festival rolls it’s way across the country, headliner artist Travis Scott takes time aside to work on new material. It’s been a matter of days since the release of his new album Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight, but the Texan rapper is wasting no time getting right back into the vocal booth, clocking up some serious late night sessions this week.

His latest track pick up the phone with Young Thug is out now on Epic Records.

The sell out dates to Listen Out Sydney and Brisbane are this weekend, if you were lucky enough to get tickets.

The Tapes

Mixed and Mastered here at Rec Studios, local new-comers The Tapes have released their debut single “At All”.

The duo consisting of electronic musicians Andrew Grant and Mickey Kojak isn’t what you’ll first expect from those names. It’s a departure from the more clubby and dance driven tones of their past work, layered with piano and guitars there is a lot of depth in the musicianship.

The pair are set to unveil a 4 piece live show later in the year as well as a five track EP.

We love it and you can check it out here.

Mosquito Coast return to Rec

When teenage duo Mosquito Coast first knocked on the door to jam out some rough demos in the studio we were blown away. On their first ever recording session they laid down Call My Name, which went on to win Triple J’s Unearthed High, as well as dominate the 2015 summer FM radio waves of the nation.

Almost a year later Naomi and Connor are back at REC working on the follow up record. Let’s Be Friends is a return to the dreamy tones and washed out beats, a sound that they have made their own, along with a huge chorus line.

The track also features almost the whole Rec Studios in-house team: produced by Carl Fox, engineered by Tom Garnett, mixed by Jack Moffitt and mastered by Craig Willson.

26 Aug – Mojos Bar, Fremantle. 2 Sep – Rocket Bar, Adelaide. 3 Sep – The Workers Club, Melbourne. 7 Sep – BIGSOUND, Brisbane. 9 Sep – Brighton Up Bar, Sydney.

A-Trak

DJ, producer, label boss, and dance music icon A-Trak left us in awe during his sessions this week, using the time to rehearse some of the most technical turntable moves we may ever see.

He is about to hit the road nationally with Aussie producer (and our good friend) What So Not on a series of theatre dates. Ahead of the tour he stopped in to REC’s Studio M to work with a bunch of your favourite local vocalists, we can’t say who but we can say it sounded electric, in all senses of the word.

He is touring in support of his new single Parallel Lines which is out now on SweatItOut and Fool’s Gold.

Tour dates with WSN include Sydney (Enmore Theatre on 30 June), Adelaide (Thebarton Theatre on 1 July), Perth (Metro on 2 July), Melbourne (Prince Bandroom on 7 and 8 July) and Brisbane (Max Watt’s on 9 July).
