Srirachi - Suckin On My Titties (SOMT)
Australian Vietnamese artist Srirachi is continuing her dominance releasing new, sexually liberating single, Suckin On My Titties (SOMT), produced by 1300’s Nerdie. The track is an uptempo, electro-inspired club banger and sees Srirachi flawlessly bounce off the bass driven beat as she reflects on an intimate moment. While tongue in cheek on first listen, the track inspires sexual liberation, independence and excitement in a society where women are constantly forced to suppress their confidence and sexuality. 

Ashli - Nltp
New Jersey Born, West Syd-based singer, songwriter and one of the most exciting artists in Australia right now, Ashli has released her debut EP Only One. Upon first listen, it is remarkable that this is a debut EP, as Ashli’s nuanced and reflective songwriting reflects love, playfulness, infatuation with a distinctly mature and emotive touch. Described as a coming of age work, the track is a beautiful introduction into the flourishing creative mind of Ashli.

Following the release of her UKG inspired single Bossin, KYE has returned with another dance inspired track titled Clique. The single is driven by her honey like layered vocals, and a bouncy and glitzy club inspired rhythm.

Kira Puru - Talk With Me
Kira Puru has released their first piece of new music in 2 and a half years. It comes in the form of Talk With Me. While deeply rooted in Puru’s signature sound of playful, pop sensibilities, the track pushes them into a new era lyrically as they reflect on falling deeply in love on a dancefloor and allowing that infatuation to let your imagination run truly wild. 

Anieszka - Dysfunctional Thoughts 
Following the releasing of her debut EP Human in July, Anieszka today returns with a gorgeous new tune titled Dysfunctional Thoughts. The single is rooted in self-healing, one that explores the inner tension between falling in love with another person while in the process of developing one's own self love. Anieszka reflects vulnerably via her incredible songwriting abilities as she highlights the importance of patience and understanding when viewing self worth. 

Liyah Knight - Play It Cool
Sydney/Eora based singer, songwriter and amazing vocalist has shared her newest single, Play It Cool. Play It Cool ushers in a new era for the artist, reflecting her mindset in the past year. The track features her signature vocals that float with strength and confidence over a bouncy, swinging bass driven beat. Her vocal delivery and lyrical prowess creates a deeply infectious energy, one that reflects nonchalance and embracing the present moment.

Vv Pete - Frauds 
Mount Druitt based Sudanese rapper Vv Pete has released her new single Frauds , which is produced by Trackwork founder Utility and left field club producer Cassius Select. The track is a thumping, club worthy track that sees Vv Pete at her absolute best, flexing on absolutely everyone and leaving no bar to waste. She calls out anyone jacking her signature style, accompanied by a staunch video of her hunting for the perpetrators. 

SPEED - One Blood We Bleed
Kings of Australian hardcore SPEED have had one of the busiest years of 2022. They’re far from done yet, announcing cross genre shows with the likes of Mulalo, Posseshot, and Mall Grab as well as kicking off their 2023 with a tour alongside Turnstile. They’ve added another track to their already cult adored discography titled One Blood We Bleed. It follows the release of their Gang Called Speed EP and is set to feature on Flatspot Records’, The Extermination Vol. 4 compilation. The track is an ode to their community of Sydney hardcore, one that is driven by equality regardless of boundary. It’s that ethos that they define as the cultural movement currently occurring in their home town of Sydney, one that they wear proudly on their sleeve as a Gang Called Speed. 

Manu Crooks - Water Luv feat Lancey Foux
Manu Crooks has released a wavy new single alongside cult adored British rapper, singer, songwriter, model, icon and record producer Lancey Foux. Water Luv perfectly taps into the psychedelic world of contemporary trap music, with its beat driven by its infectious rhythmic section and hallmark vocals from both the artists. Minimal in its nature, the track bounces beautifully beneath their verses, creating a cross continent link up that is for the ages. 

Tkay Maidza - Nights In December
Following a huge support tour alongside global pop phenom Dua Lipa, Tkay Maidza has surprised fans with an end of year gift in the form of new single, Nights In December. The groovy, synth led track is pop music excellence, as glitchy percussion clicks sporadically below an infectious vocal delivery from Tkay, solidifying her as one of Australia’s most inventive songwriters.
