Foura - Promise feat. NIK NAVY
Naarm/Melbourne based producer FOURA has today released the second installment of her forthcoming mixtape Taste which is set for release on the 14th of October. Promise showcases FOURA’s strength as a producer as she diverts away from club music to a downtempo, emotive number. Behind NIK NAVY’s soaring vocals sit gorgeous synths, shuffling production that evoke melancholy.

Western Sydney based radio host, audio engineer and producer SOLLYY has teamed up with fellow Western Sydney rapper and producer Zion Garcia for their first collaborative track APPLY THE PRESSURE. The track is an uptempo club cut that combines both artists' skill with precision. Sampling Semi MC’s new jack swing track Trust Me, the track is ready made for a late night dancefloor, as Garcia raps beautifully and introspectively over a 4/4 club beat.
