Gold Coast-based party starters Bootleg Rascal have just unleashed ‘Oh so Cool’ – another taste from their forthcoming staggered EP titled ‘Collaborations of Very Isolated Delinquents “19’ – produced by the band themselves, Ian Pritchett (Boo Seeka, Kim Churchill, Angus and Julia Stone), and Simon Dobson (Little May, STUPID BABY).
Continuing down the pathway of sonic experimentation, ‘Oh so Cool’ is a quintessential party track that takes cues from the likes of Beastie Boys, Run-D.M.C. and Gorillaz. The commanding cadences of front man Carlos Lara soar seamlessly above fuzz-laden guitars, rumbling bass and resounding drums, before transitioning into its compelling outro led by an infectious sing-a-long.
Due to the unprecedented and evolving situation around the global pandemic, the band and their team have decided to push back their East Coast headline tour dates. Rescheduled shows will be held across January and February 2021, pending there is no risk to the health and safety of the band, crew, venue staff and fans.
Since their mid-2013 inception, Bootleg Rascal have released a slew of singles, an EP and two albums, all warmly received by critics and fans around the world, with support from the likes of NME, The Line of Best Fit, Clash Magazine, Pilerats and Wonderland Magazine. Multiple tracks have been added to Spotify and Apple Music playlists, high rotation on triple j and they’ve performed on the station’s esteemed ‘Like a Version’ segment.
The band have continually traversed the globe playing multiple sold out headline shows in France, UK, Holland, Germany, New Zealand and Australia, and performed sold out shows in the USA. They’ve also regularly appeared on major Australian festivals including Falls Festival, The Big Pineapple Festival, Lost Paradise, Hills are Alive, Festival of the Sun and Party in the Paddock.

Title: Nervous Habits feat. Joey Fleming
Label: Dim Mak Records
Australian powerhouse GG Magree teams up with In Her Own Words lead singer Joey Fleming on “Nervous Habits.” Magree‘s sonic ambition is on full display, as she duets tight hooks over melodic dubstep instrumentation. Although GG Magree has made a name for herself through her raucous bass music, “Nervous Habits” showcases a vulnerable side through personal, refined lyrics. Both GG and Joey flex their singing chops on the single, balancing honeyed lines with angst-ridden verses that roll off like a conversation between a star-crossed couple. A deep synth bass lurks beneath the vocals, which drops into a heavy and intense breakdown that feels like wading through the darkness of this particular relationship. Together Magree and Fleming fuse raw emotion, breathtaking vocals, and bone-shaking bass to create a powerful Dim Mak debut.
“Everyone has that one love that they can’t break away from… ‘Nervous Habits‘ is a story about mine.” – GG Magree
GG‘s indisputable talent as a DJ, producer, and singer/songwriter has made her a triple threat in the electronic music industry. She first made waves in 2016 with her vocal debut “Frontlines,” in collaboration with NGHTMRE & Zeds Dead, which has amassed over 28M streams on Spotify alone. GG is also well known for her reload-worthy remix of Billie Eilish‘s “Wish You Were Gay,” in addition to original singles like “I Wanna Lose You,” “Ghost” with Jauz, and “Flatline” alongside Sullivan King. In her native Australia and beyond, Magree has become a highly sought after artist known for bringing electric energy to audiences worldwide; by far the best way to experience GG is at a live show. She has graced the stage with the likes of Pharrell, DJ Snake, Wu-Tang Clan, Zeds Dead, Virtual Self, Iggy Azalea, NGHTMRE, and many more.
Joey Fleming is the lead singer of the American alt-punk band In Her Own Words, based in Los Angeles. With roots in the underground punk rock scene, Fleming packs high intensity and angst into heartfelt lyrics and melodies to make his listeners feel what he feels. He was introduced to creating and writing at a very young age, which has allowed him to evoke unparalleled passion and unique personality within his music. Fleming has released multiple EPs and albums via In Her Own Words since 2013 and now is breaking into the electronic scene with his feature on “Nervous Habits.”
Title: Party Girl
R3HAB is never the type to shy away from a sonic adventure, and this time he’s done it again with a remake of “Party Girl,” StaySolidRocky‘s single turned viral hit via TikTok. While the original takes a mellow hip-hop approach, R3HAB ups the ante by infusing it with his signature high-energy electronic sound. The opening instrumental riff quickly progresses into a deep bassline complemented with upbeat, bouncy synths. The catchy lyrics of “Party Girl” are still present, though distorted and perfectly tuned to the new sound of the remake, which will make anyone want to dance. R3HAB previously put his own spin on “BAD!” by XXXTentacion last year, which saw the multi-talented producer dipping his toes into the rap/hip-hop world. He has also ventured into the pop and Latin world with the release of “Besame (I Need You)” with TINI and Reik recently, but he’s not slowing down just yet. Keep an eye out for the official announcement and more exciting music coming soon! In the meantime, vote for R3HAB in DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs 2020 here.
“I haven’t done something like this in a while, and I must say it felt great working on this track. It is a different version with a different sound, but when you hear it, you will definitely recognize the touch of R3HAB.” – R3HAB on “Party Girl“
Over the last eight years, the Dutch/Moroccan artist Fadil El Ghoul – better known as R3HAB – has established himself as a leader at the forefront of modern electronic music. His talent has been called the “future of the craft” by the likes of Forbes and Billboard, and he’s circuited the globe’s best clubs and festivals, all without the backing of a formal record label. In 2017, R3HAB independently released his debut album “Trouble” through his imprint CYB3RPVNK, which amassed over a half-billion streams globally and officially placed R3HAB among electronic music’s heavy hitters. He made number 14 on DJ Mag’s Top 100 list in 2019, topping the charts with tracks like “Lullaby” and “Hold On Tight,” while his sophomore album “The Wave,” revealing more complex, emotional and experimental layers of himself, has amassed over 250 million streams on Spotify alone. In 2019 R3HAB‘s “All Around The World” with A Touch of Class quickly became his biggest ever record already topping 200M streams across platforms and achieving gold & platinum status in 8 countries. It was followed by “Flames,” R3HAB‘s collaboration with ZAYN.

We caught up with her to find out what’s been happening in her world, her new single ‘Disaster’ and how she’s faring in Melbourne’s lockdown..
I have been based in Melbourne for several years now.
You lived in Asia for 5 years, tell us more about that and how it is influenced you:
Yes, I moved to Bangkok, Thailand when I was 12 years old as my dad was working for the United Nations and I stayed there till I was 17. It had a profound impact on me in more ways than I could ever vocalise. Thailand is a Buddhist country and the teachings have stayed with me and shaped the person I am. It has helped me over the years to stay centred, calm, focused on the present and be my most authentic self, even if I am standing alone (which is hugely helpful in this industry). It is also behind my choice to be a pescatarian and to be kind to all living things. In Buddhism the lotus flower symbolises spiritual awakening, purity of the body, speech and mind, as if floating above the murky waters of material attachment and physical desire, so my high school best friend Fleur and I got matching lotus flower tattoos on our hips when we were 17 and leaving Thailand. We did this so the memories and philosophy would stick with us.
While in Bangkok I attended an international school and was introduced to people of all nationalities, cultures and walks of life and that has continued into adulthood. I like to be around a mix of people, or I get bored. It was a privileged existence, living in a gated community with a live-in maid. Suffice to say reality hit hard (understatement) when I moved back to NZ into a share house and had to clean, cook, and pay my own bills. Bangkok is also where I learnt meditation, kickboxing, Shaolin kung fu and Tai Chi. My dad used to shave his head and disappear off to a temple to live as a Monk now and then. He still meditates morning and night. I do still miss many aspects of Thai life, including the food/tropical fruit and Songkran festival, in which everyone basically goes onto the streets and has a huge water fight, symbolising the washing away of one’s sins and bad luck. I was also very naughty and started clubbing as young teenager, but we will leave those stories for another time… ONE NIGHT IN BANGKOK AND THE WORLD’S YOUR OYSTER… need I say more!
How did you first get into music?
In primary school I was chosen to be in a special choir of a select few and my grandparents would fly down to Christchurch to watch me, which was special. Mum was always singing and playing guitar round the house too, there was always music playing in the background and at every family gathering all the Aunties would be up dancing to the likes of Abba or UB40, so I’ve always been listening. I was also a choir soloist at the International school, the other soloist is now one of Thailand’s biggest pop stars. After school I studied jazz at university, and I have done it on the side ever since. I have lived a transient life in many respects (living in many different places since I was young, going to 6 different schools, 3 tertiary institutions, working many jobs), which has often lead to feelings of loneliness and being misunderstood (that few know and understand me on a deeper level or know my past), but music has been a constant in my life since I was young. No matter where I go it is always there for me. I feel that I have life experience well beyond my years.
Melbourne has pretty much been in lockdown since mid-March, how have you been faring?
You know sometimes I’m good at accepting it for what it is and channel my energy into my music and being productive but I have times where I feel trapped and isolated missing my family back in NZ. I typically head back to NZ 4 times a year to see friends, family and be there for milestones, so clearly that has not been the case this year. My siblings are a lot younger than me (my youngest sister is 15 years younger than me and was 2 years old when I moved out of home), so I try to go back regularly so I feel connected to them and know them as people. I have also used this time to declutter and sell things I no longer want or need.It is a bit difficult watching family and friends’ lives returning to normality back in NZ, whilst we are back in lockdown with no no end in sight.
You worked corporate for a number of years, why the move to music?
Music has always been my #1 love, but I got into sales and broking to make a living but always felt I was in the wrong place, that it was no more than a pay cheque. Writing, creating, and releasing music can be a very personal and emotional yet rewarding experience and a great outlet. I believe I have both creative and business sides, which allows me to push forward when things do not go my way and see things from a business perspective not an emotional one. Most of all I love the process and know that this is what I am born to do.
What do you like to do outside of music?
I love the beach… it’s a Kiwi thing I think. If a week goes by where I have not seen the ocean I do not feel right. I like to go to the gym or do some form of exercise first thing in the morning (after a coffee of course). Exercise helps to put things in perspective and overcome obstacles and just makes me a happier person. I used to be a fitness fanatic, but these days I’m less particular about diet and exercise. Other than that, I like reading (self-help books and biographies) and baking (although only occasionally as I do not trust myself around sweets). Other than that, I like spending time with my cat and partner, going out for a meal or drinks with friends. Oh, and Netflix (limited to an hour each night – haha). My parents have a property on Great Barrier island off the coast of NZ (mum is the island doctor on weekends), which has the most beautiful beaches, so I try and get out there at least once a year. I always come away feeling more in tune with my spirituality and connected to the earth. Putting photographs in albums is also something I enjoy. I have always got a kick out of looking back through albums. Oh, and travelling… when that was a thing!
What are your plans for the remainder of 2020 and future goals?
Happiness is always the goal (In saying that heart break is what produces the best songs so there is a silver lining). Career wise I would of course love to win an Aria or a Grammy (go hard or go home). There are tonnes of amazing artists and producers I would love to work with including Joel Little, Skrillex, and Diplo (to name a few). A collab with Gwen Stefani, Rihanna or Charli XCX would be the ultimate for me though I think. This year I am dropping 3 singles and an EP. I had plans to do shows but for obvious reasons that is not happening, but I will be doing some live performances from home.
You have some new music on the way, what can we expect?
You can expect some edgy, sultry pop with powerful vocals on a bed of synths. As well as a tongue in cheek dance single thrust in there.
Who are some of your Influences:
I love world music, Ragga Music, Ravi Shankar (I love plucking instruments, they always sound ethereal and are used a lot in Thailand), African music (Johnny Clegg), Kate Bush, Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, Dinah Washington, Rihanna, Bjork, Imogen Heap, Flume, Hermitude and Charli XCX.
What are you listening to now?
I listen to such a range. A lot of Jazz (often without a vocal haha). I have been loving Charli XCX’s new Iso album ‘How I’m feeling now’ as she combines a lot of interesting sounds, Kita Alexander, Major Lazer, Hermitude and Ava Max. You can check out my ‘JoannaBop’ Spotify Playlist to hear what I am currently listening too…
What did you find most challenging and rewarding throughout the creative process?
I am very much an innate writer so it usually just comes out without too much thought, however I often sing a melody and then come up with words to it or alter the words in order to create a story that makes sense and or give it meaning/depth. The challenge for most creatives is to silence the inner critic and just be present and not pay too much attention to whether or not the song will be successful or not as that kills the creative process and energy flow.
Your new single ‘Disaster’ is available worldwide today, what influenced the song and how did it come about?
Disaster started off as a remix of one of my unreleased tracks, but I liked it so much that I gave it a new melody and wrote new lyrics. Disaster is part 1 of a 2-part narrative. This song is very much ‘fifty Shades of Grey’ sonically, however the narrative conveys the range of emotions that are felt when a person decides to end a relationship with their significant other. The loss of connection and loneliness that is felt when you realise you are no longer happy and you want different things to your other half, that there is no way forward. Then feeling responsible for tearing something that meant so much apart. Disaster is an anthem for the most difficult time for couples.
If your house were on fire, what would you grab on the way out:
I would grab my cat, photo albums, laptop, and hard drive (because all my music creations are on it). I (like most) enjoy the finer things in life but do not value or get attached to them. These are my only prized possessions.
Favourite food and place to hang out?
My favourite cuisines are definitely Thai …go figure haha (’Blossom Thai’ in South Yarra is the most authentic Thai I’ve found in Melbourne) and Mexican (‘Hecho en Mexico’ in Fitzroy do the best fish tacos, but I do make a mean home-made Guac). On a (rare) sunny Melbourne day you’ll find me walking bayside and popping in to Elwood Bathers for a coffee.

SUPPORT FOR ‘QUÉ PASÓ’
“Absolute slow-motion scenes in a European nightclub as this one plays and you catch the eye of That Person you’ve been flirting with for weeks now.” – 4/5 stars
– Tommy Faith – triple j (AUS)
“Infectious from start to finish, ‘Qué Pasó’ is an energetic, feel-good collaboration between two exciting emerging acts. Combining ANGE‘s vocals that sit in the same vein as BANKS with a funk-laden bass line, a thumping beat and warm keys, ‘Qué Pasó’ is an undeniable bop that reaches euphoric heights.”
– Purple Sneakers (AUS)
“The infectiousness of ‘Qué Pasó’ immediately hits us from the word go, with ANGE‘s soothing Spanish vocals playfully bouncing around the mix and allowing the engaging instrumentation to enter the arena bit by that.”
– Acid Stag (AUS)

Added to Spotify playlist New Music Friday (ESP)
Added to Apple Music playlists Pure Motivation (ESP) and Barcelona Suena (USA)
Following the release of their critically praised single ‘Qué Pasó’ ft. ANGE, Sydney-based producer duo Lamalo have just unveiled the accompanying video clip – directed and edited by Emma Corrigan.
Shot at Woodburn Creatives in Redfern, the clip sees two performers playing out a relationship through interpretive dance. The video uses the same style and location, instead focuses on their separation and the contrast in colours to mirror the song’s themes and lyrics of loss and longing.
Lamalo talk about the inspiration for the clip:
“We shot a lot of the clip in double speed, creating a drawn in effect when slowed down to the original speed. We also had two dancers (Yuli Torres & Orlando Granda Rivera) involved and some movement visuals (Sebastian Garcia) on the backdrop as well as two coloured lights for the set.”
Previous singles have been strongly supported by Spotify and Apple Music, including an entry in the Spotify AU Viral Chart, with their single ‘Outside’ amassing nearly two million streams. They’ve also been widely embraced by Australian radio institutions triple j, triple j Unearthed, FBi Radio and various other community radio stations.

THE LEMON TWIGS Release new single ‘No One Holds You (Closer Than The One You Haven’t Met)’ Songs For The General Public out Friday 21 August
The Lemon Twigs offer another taste of their upcoming album, Songs For The General Public, with fourth single ‘No One Holds You (Closer Than The One You Haven’t Met)’. Released today, the barnstorming 3-minute song covers failed relationships and romantic fantasies, “No one compares to the one that you invented in your head.”

Brian and Michael D’Addario first emerged as The Lemon Twigs in 2016 with their debut LP Do Hollywood, whose showstopping melodies mined from every era of rock quickly earned fans in Elton John, Questlove, and Jack Antonoff. Go To School, the ambitious 15-track coming-of-age opus, followed in 2018 and solidified the band’s reputation for building grand walls of sound around an audacious concept.

New Signs of Life announced via Dais Records, due 25th September
Today Death Bells share ‘Heavenly Bodies‘, a point-blank delivery of a laconic truth: ‘We all vanish, anyway’. The duo’s new album New Signs of Life is due 25th September via Dais Records, pre-order here: https://n-s-o-l.com/
Sombre and cool, ‘Heavenly Bodies‘ eases into hushed staccato hypnosis while still finding the tenets of guitar-driven rock. The LA-via-Australia duo have always found power in contrast and on ‘Heavenly Bodies’ they balance a driving, expansive sound with an introverted meditation on the preciousness and shortness of life.
They explain the track: “‘Heavenly Bodies’ is the first track on New Signs of Life. We wrote it in a dining room shortly before a tour last August and refined it over those following dates. It focuses on the inevitable truth of mortality in a point-blank manner.”
Death Bells is the longtime musical collaboration between Will Canning and Remy Veselis. Formed in 2015 during their late adolescent years in Sydney, Australia, the act has proven to be a mainstay in the alternative underground musical landscape both in their homeland and overseas during their five-year history. Blurring the lines of post-punk and garage rock, Death Bells has morphed and transformed as the two members have grown up throughout their late teenage years living together into early adulthood. With Canning’s distinctive baritone and the kinetic collection of reverb-drenched leads by Veselis being a constant during their musical output, the two made the permanent move 7,000 miles away to Los Angeles, California in 2018 where the current incarnation of Death Bells has blossomed.
Following the releases of their debut E.P, much-loved first album, and seven-inch single on Funeral Party Records and their 2019 single on Metropolitan Indian, Death Bells have joined the Dais Records family for their highly anticipated sophomore album New Signs of Life. Three years in the making, the release sees the act embrace their diverse tastes to deliver unforgettable hooks and more expansive sounds across its nine graceful songs.
Engineered and mixed under the attentive eye of Colin Knight at Paradise Studios throughout mid-to-late 2019, New Signs of Life is the band’s most complete work to date. Along with classic Death Bells brooding romanticism, the themes of the record divulge personal insight into their move across the world and both the strained and new relationships that have materialised throughout their existence. Slated for release on September 25th, New Signs of Life is as advertised – it is the career-defining new chapter to commence the new decade.

SUPPORT FOR ‘MINIMAL STUFFING’
“A heaving return firmly rooted in dance music that pushes their sound into new directions, taking their worldly instrumentation and aligning it with a thick dance core that really brings things up a notch.”
– Pilerats (AUS)
Premiered on Double J’s Stir It Up
Following on from the release of their critically praised single ‘Minimal Stuffing’, Gold Coast-based electronic-dance quartet Tijuana Cartel has just unveiled the accompanying video clip – directed and animated by Carey O’Sullivan of Hot Damn Productions.
The clip showcases a psychedelic wonderland of shapes and colours, flowing to the track’s instrumentation, all captured through the use of a 3D scanner made out of a record player – the kaleidoscope visuals resulting in a mind-bending Synaesthesia of digitally warped music and nature.
Casey talks about the process and inspiration behind ‘the clip:
“Much of the animated stuff comes out of my backyard garden. I’ve had a long-term fascination with recursive forms and patterns that are emerging in nature. We started with a goal to digitally recreate these natural structures for synced visualisations for the live show. However, it became apparent there weren’t any available tools to do the job. So, in true nerd DIY fashion, I decided the only way was to create some. When we finished this track, we knew it was a perfect match for the fruits of the digital nature machine.”
In the live arena, the band have sold out multiple Australian headline tours and played notable events Splendour in the Grass, Falls Festival, Bluesfest, Wollombi Music Festival and Subsonic Music Festival. To coincide with the release, the band have performed in Maroochydore, before finishing the tour in Brisbane in September. This comes off the back of them winning the ‘Live Act of the Year’ award a few months ago at the Gold Coast Music Awards.
Since release the track has been widely embraced by the likes of Indie Shuffle (ZAF), Pilerats, Acid Stag and Forte Magazine, with radio support from triple j, Double J, triple j Unearthed, 4ZZZ, RTR FM, Bay FM and Radio Adelaide. Previous releases have also been supported by Music Feeds, Beat Mag, The Music, The AU Review, FBi, 3RRR, Edge Radio and NOOSA FM.
Tijuana Cartel will release their forthcoming new album ‘Acid Pony’ on November 13th.
