Paces - Julian Feat. Erin Marshall by DIEHIGH RECORDS

Producer/ DJ

Dylan Tainsh aka Dugong Jr has been quietly building up the production arsenal to make a break, and that time is growing nearer and nearer with every release. Fresh off the heels of his collective's debut compilation, Moving Castle Vol. 001, the Aussie producer puts his spin on Kilter's "They Say."He takes the original's upbeat, D'n'B esque qualities and flips them, submerging the listener in an impressive underwater synth-heavy approach.
Vocal chops and clever sampling carry the weight until the break, where the track turns into a future bass gem. Dugong continues his string of forward-thinking remixes, and with the Moving Castle collective diving head-first into a genre few producers would even dip their toes in, look for their success to continue.

Producer/ Singer

Chet Faker is the creative alias of Nick Murphy, a 23-year-old solo artist from Melbourne whose debut EP Thinking in Textures is a beautiful blend of folk and electro. Rather than just restricting himself to one genre or the other, Murphy has combined his two passions and in the process discovered a form of music that is just as satisfying to write and record as it is to perform.

“Well, I always loved electronic music. And I was always jumping between the two. So for a few years I played that kind of folk acoustic stuff on guitar, then I got really sick of it. The simplicity of songwriting can really do your head in, the fine-tuning of tiny things. Then I would try and make beats and instrumental stuff, which I really liked, but then on the other end of the spectrum the unlimited options would also do my head in,” Murray said.

“The music now is the first time I felt comfortable with this sort of sound that did those two things. It was good because, if I did get stuck in the production side of things, I could go back and focus on the songwriting. I could swap between the two mental concepts without actually having to swap between the music I was making,” he said.

Figuring out how to merge folk and electro into his own particular brand of pop music has enabled Murphy to write heartfelt songs that play as both subtle and uplifting, and it is through the outlet of Chet Faker that Murphy feels most comfortable revealing himself.

“Because the songs were so personal I feel like there’s enough information on me without me having to go out and put up a bio on everything I’ve done in my life,” Murphy said.

“I think a big realization for me was that if I express it in song, it’s going to do two things: it’s going to make people listen to what I’m feeling and… it’s not just about me, if you do it well enough people can enjoy listening to how you’re feeling about things,” he said.

While still endeavoring to find his own sound and understand how to best express himself via his craft, Murphy first began to draw attention to his musical ability with his revamped version of Blackstreet’s classic No Diggity, which reached #1 on the worldwide indie music aggregator, Hype Machine.

Emoh (aka Amoh Instead) has been engineering full stadium electronica for three years on the international stage. Emoh produces Aussie tech trap with a sick influence of indie music and dance. He is currently touring Australia and New Zealand, check out his single Why Can’t You (Say So…).

This young producer goes by the name of Sebastian Carlos and he comes from Sydney. It’s already a well-known fact that he’s buddies with Wave Racer and Cosmo’s Midnight (dofflin dofflin) who coincidentally also make feel-good electronic music.

What So Not are Sydney DJ/production duo Flume and Emoh Instead. Although they differ in size, facial hair and physique, both began their destined path to DJ notoriety as humble paper boys with a keen ear for jams. United by a love of surfing and the sweaty corridors and dancefloors of nightclubs, they set out to create a project inspired by the most universal of feelings: fun.This is not to say that there’s not a serious intent going on with their music-making. They first flexed their muscle in 2011 with debut EP ‘7 Dollar Bill’, scoring approval from the likes of Switch and Sinden. Their most recent EP release‘The Quack’ (out via local legends Sweat It Out and internationally via Skrillex’s label OWSLA) dropped harder than that time Tony Abbott crashed in on Flume’s wave (true story).

It featured guest vocalists/heavyweights Action Bronson, D Mac & Blood Diamonds, clocked up over 450k Soundcloud plays and garnered the attention of fellow electronic heavyweights Diplo, Bauuer and Flosstradamus. Of lead single ‘High You Are’, Emoh says:‘’High You Are’ was an experiment. We wanted to take the concept of groove-based house and push it to the extreme. Something that could hold its own, against the biggest 'EDM' hit, without compromising the feel and soul. The power to make people move, not just fist pump.’And so it did.

People moved their bodies to What So Not’s frenetic DJ shows (spearheaded by Emoh Instead, on occasion joined by Flume) all across the country, firstly on the 2012 triple j House Party tour, then on their own run of 30+ headline dates throughout regional Australia, NZ and various corners of Asia. Their mad energy and burgeoning fanbase was on hi-vis at their frankly mental headline DJ slot at this year’s Splendour In The Grass.

What So Not’s schedule for 2014 is jam-packed. They gave away a new edit ‘Touched’ for free download through their soundcloud in November 2013, it was the first piece of music that Emoh and Flume ever worked on together as What So Not and has clocked approx. 1.5 million plays on soundcloud to date as well as being a Hype Machine global #1.Their current single ‘Jaguar’ dropped 10 December through Sweat It Out in Australia and Skrillex’s OWSLA imprint for the rest of the world.

Having clocked over 2 million plays on soundcloud and pushing 700k plays for the official video as well as topping the global Hype Machine chart again, Jaguar is easily WSN’s biggest single to date.There’s also been plenty of touring for What So Not over the Aus/NZ summer with a slot on the national Stereosonic Festival in 2013 as well as high profile sets at Field Day, La De Da Festival in NZ and Shore Thing and Beach Life with Skrillex in Australia. The next Australian dates are on the national touring festival Groovin The Moo in April/May alongside Disclosure, Action Bronson and Wave Racer.What So Not’s first USA shows took place on the infamous Holy Ship cruise in Jan 2014 with a North American tour supporting GTA scheduled for Mar/Apr 2014 as well as some exclusive sets at SXSW and Miami Music Week.

Producer/ DJ

Swisher is Play’s side project alongside his brother Phil-osopher. Under this alias they plan to get the ghetto out of their system (And yours!) via some hoodlum Hip-Hop beats.

Swisher have made waves across Australia and the world with releases on Scattermusic and Top Billin’ (USA) as well as getting some airplay on Diplo’s weekly club show on BBC Radio 1. The boys have also warmed up for the likes of Flume, What So Not, Spenda C and heaps more since they burst onto the scene late in 2012.

Producer/ DJ

With an intimidating body of work amassing, spearheaded by the current Bandcamp charting release Re-Twerk, Perth’s Ta-ku is showing no signs of slowing down with co-signs from Diplo, Atrak, Gas Lamp Killer, Salva, Baauer, Shigeto, Flosstradamus, Nina Las Vegas, JJJ Next Crop, Nosaj Thing to name a few.

The Red Bull Music Academy alumni quickly captured the world’s attention and with the amount of releases he has clocked up for labels like Brownswood, HW&W, Soulection and Project Mooncircle as well as collaborations with Chet Faker and remixes for Justin Timberlake, Flume, The Presets, Hermitude and Snakadaktal, Ta-ku looks set to continue with a crackling schedule set for 2013 already locked in.

From an early output of dusty beat samples, this disciple of The Ummah can cut and chop Hip-Hop beats in his sleep, yet it is his current material which shows a dancefloor edge not yet heard from the producer but already clocking up runs on the board like the inclusion of many tracks from Re-Twerk on man of the moment Baauer’s (Lucky Me/Mad Decent) new mix for RINSE FM.

Available for DJ sets and Production panels, Ta-ku will soon emerge from the studio to be one of the most formidable live Producer acts in the country.

Producer/ DJ

Hailing form Perth, Coin Banks has released his long awaited debut solo release HEADS, featuring Ta-Ku, Homeboy Sandman, 20syl and Atom from C2C, Like from PAC DIV and others. Coin has been featured as the feature artist on Rage, Triple J and RTR FM and had his second single Think Of You added to full rotation on Triple J. His EP has received critical acclaim and has shown what he is capable of a solo artist.

Cutting his teeth in Perth hip-hop group The Stoops, Coin left in early 2012 to pursue new projects – including the Coin & Ta-ku collaborative album, the full-length Letters To The Sun collaboration with producer Akouo, and membership of rising live hip-hop collective UPNUP, whose lone track “Whatever Man” earned Triple J Unearthed profile and a Macklemore & Ryan Lewis support.
Coin has also spent the last year crafting away on some of his best music to date, gearing up to debut as his first solo release in 2014.

HEADS will be closely followed by its companion piece, ‘Tails’. Both releases show Coin Banks striving to make music that is original and carries a social and conscious message, drawing on inspiration from the Native Tongue movement and its modern day equivalents such as Top Dawg Entertainment. Coin is currently working on his full-length album, with Ta-Ku and Nottz listed as contributors.

Paranoia, Ghosts & Other Sounds (Akouo Remix) by SAFIA

Producer/ DJ

They started in the Blue Mountains in 2000 and released our first release (vinyl only) Imaginary Friends in 2002. Since then they have dropped four albums (Alleys to Valleys 2003, Tales of the Drift 2005, Threads 2008 and HyperParadise 2012) and two EPs (Rare Sightings 2007, Parallel Paradise 2012).

Our most recent album HyperParadise won the prestigious Australian Music Award in 2012 plus a handful of other awards and nominations.

They 're studio nerds who've played live music our entire lives. And they have no plans of changing that.

After a monster return in 2013 with 'Pizza Guy / Show Me', plus a remix for label-mate Hayden James, Touch Sensitive returns with his immaculately concieved synth wizardy & bass-lauded single, 'Slowments'. 

It’s looking to be a mammoth 2014 for Touch Sensitive, soon heading to the US to play dates at SXSW Festival, as well as working on new material to be released later in the year. You can also catch Touch Sensitive at Boiler Room in Melbourne on March 7th. He'll then be touring extensively around the country supporting Disclosure and Cut Copy.

After creating an enormous local buzz, passionate fanbase and an air of mystery in her short career, twenty-two year old singer / songwriter Owl Eyes (aka Brooke Addamo) continues the intrigue and delivers her first full-length project; ‘Nightswim’. A remarkably deep, ultra-modern, vibrant collection, ‘Nightswim’ not only showcases Brooke’s signature pop sensibilities and sublime taste, it firmly establishes her as one of music’s brightest and most innovative songwriters.

Recently having one of her sets described by Annie Mac as "the best party set i've heard in a long time" the wide-eyed, dodo racing, rabbit chasing girl of Lewis Carol's opium induced fantasies has officially been superseded.
This Alison didn't fall down anything; she jumped head first down the rabbit hole and landed straight on the decks. Armed with turntables, a killer vibe and an open mind, Alison turns countless dance floors across Australia into your favourite kind of Wonderland: more beats, less croquet.

Beginning with a background in indie and classical, Wonderland's best card is her eclecticism. Throughout her youth she toured Europe as a principal cellist for the Sydney Youth Orchestra and later played bass in a successful local indie band.

After inking a global deal with EMI, Wonderland released her debut compilation record - "Welcome To Wonderland" mid 2012, while her much anticipated first original's album is due out very soon! If the success of her remixes is anything to go by the record is set to be a game changer.

Wonderland has performed in LA at the official Grammy's Afterparty, all throughout Ibiza on top of MOS and the Brit Awards Afterparty in London. In Australia she has torn up main stages at Splendour in the Grass, Falls Festival, Southbound Festival, Stereosonic, Field Day, Parklife (nationally), Good Vibrations Festival, Harbourlife, Sydney Fashion Week, Future Music Festival, Coaster Festival, Secret Garden Festival and more, not to mention her sellout headline national tours.

During my tour in Australia, I was amazed by the incredibly talented artists , musicians, Djs, producers, graffiti.. Its why I decided to make this blog to give you an idea of the SuperHer'OZ i selected for you. Enjoy !
(Mix / Biography / Graffiti / Music)

Selection of amazing graffiti artists




Melbourne-based artist 'Adnate' floated high over Australia’s most iconic lane way to paint a significant wall that has never before been available to any artist. This forms part of a project entitled 'Paint Up!' by Hosier Inc, a not-for-profit association. The association formed in 2013 from a community-driven passion to address amenity issues in the lane way. It aims to nurture the space with the help of all who have an interest in the area and want to take part. Members include residents and businesses, restaurants, artists, tourists, photographers and regular visitors.



As LINZ, an internationally acclaimed and Ironlak-sponsored graffiti writer with a career now spanning 20 years, Harnden’s movements have aligned him with celebrated Australian musicians, artists and sporting personalities. These figures, along with some closer to his heart, form the pith of his work; a realism characterised by the heightened juxtaposition of subject and technique.

There is a brutal honesty in Harnden’s work. While highlighting the rawness of gangland imagery he affords a sentimentalist portrayal of integrity and soul in each of his oil paintings. He achieves a unique exactitude through the medium but also draws upon a tremendous amount of depth, claiming more than a simple connection with his subjects.

Although some figureheads he depicts fall short of the limelight in the popularised mainstream, the romantic undertone of Harnden’s perception is revealed as every character he paints is essentially a hero in his eyes.

In his time and place, Lee Harnden is a catalyst of ‘subterranean representation’. Unfortunate for him as it is for many true artisans, his work will speak volumes much louder in generations yet to come.


Roughly based in Adelaide Australia, Vans the Omega has been creating & painting letterforms for over two decades, which has seen him, travel around the globe consistently since 2000. Most of his influences have come from ancient scripts, Architecture, engineering, nature & the idea of movement or balance.

Recognised for his attention to detail & search for perfection within letter structure, technique & life has put Vans the Omega in the spot light worldwide & helped to advance the way in which the art form is painted along side his other TMD members & extended family of writers around the planet.



Dan Withey originally from Birmingham, England, emigrated to Australia in 2004 and now resides in Adelaide, where he studied at the University of South Australia  and obtained a Bachelor in Visual Communication.

While on the course he specialized in illustration, he then decided to become an artist. He taught him self to paint and with that had his first show and continues to paint six years later, with 17 successful solo shows around Australia to date

This prolific artist is one to watch out for, Withey is the very embodiment of the work he creates, with eccentric characters and an eye catching instinctive use of  colour. His intuitive work comes from the world around him, from direct life experiences and the things that seep into Dans daily life. He is part of the art, and the art is part of him, and if you have met Dan this is clear to see.


Prolific and passionate street artist Ernest Doty equates justice and vision in his pursuit for more wall space. At once a mystic and a social activist, Ernest seems to want to drag the rest of the contempoary world into an age of neo-enlightenment, kicking and screaming. His ancient characters, with their multiple. sad eyes have a message for us: their message is silence, compassion and social justice. 


Graffiti enthusiasts will be pleased to learn that a new project melding street art and architecture is in the works in Australia. The first in a series of buildings celebrating graffiti was recently unveiled in a suburb of Melbourne. Australian architect Zvi Belling of ITN Architects renovated an old tailor shop into a contemporary and eco-conscious apartment that, according to the architect's statement, “seeks to knit itself into the existing building on the site to form an integrated new cultural type that exposes the history of the site with glimpses of period material and detail.”


Fintan Magee is a Lismore-born, Brisbane-raised artist who seems to have gotten up in just about every Australian city. Recently, especially in Sydney. 

Magee's early work was heavily influenced by more traditional graffiti, but he's since been painting murals that verged into a different category. It's sometimes surreal, often character-based, and extremely illustrative. Stange people wearing masks play dangerous games, an infant dressed as Superman is speared by an arrow – there are some nightmarish themes that are somehow still beautiful, no matter how bleak. 

His recent blending of cartoon-ish hero-style characters with everyday humans is a favourite: we love how the characters can explore heavy themes without being entirely grim. And yet, the subjects are strange, pseudo-humans – not quite real and not quite imaginary. They teeter in a strange kind of limbo that's neither here nor there. 


Phibs is one the most respected and renowned names in Australian Graffiti/Street Art. His public art works are prolific in Melbourne & Sydney and are far-flung across the globe. He has painted so many walls around Fitzroy,  an inner suburb of Melbourne, that it has affectionately become known by locals as ‘Phibsroy’.

Originally from Sydney, Phibs came from a strong graffiti background and was active in community programs, inspiring the artistic potential of this now popular art form. Moving to Melbourne in 2001 saw Phibs exposed to an evolving Melbourne street art scene and the joined the Everfresh Studio collective. In Melbourne Phibs established a name within the fine arts world and rapidly became one of the cities  most respected and renowned artists, on & off the streets.

Phibs signifies the symbiotic, engaging the urban with the organic. He produces works across a vast variety of mediums and consistently reflects his own unique realms of symbolism, multiculturalism and mythology. Largely inspired by nature,  his works have spawned a menagerie of signature characters.

Phibs distinctive style has attracted numerous major brands and publications and several of his works have been acquired by the National Gallery of Australia for its permanent collection.

Now based in Sydney, Phibs continues to exhibit interstate and Internationally in galleries, on walls & at various festivals.


Famous for his sumptuous paintings of glamorous women, in particular an often recurring image of his so-called Jane Doe, Rone’s work attempts to locate the friction point between beauty and decay, the lavish and despoiled, creating an iconic form of urban art with a strongly emotional bent. Producing many of his early works either through a process of stenciling or screen-printing however, like fellow Everfresh member Meggs, Rone’s movement toward a more freehand style of practice has enabled a certain amount of openness and looseness to seep into his images, a rawness which can perhaps be seen to have enhanced the affective quality they contained. A key individual in the Melbourne street art scene then, Rone’s images have not only appeared all over his city itself but have increasingly began to appear all around the world too, his trademark figures, his heroic, alluring, cinematic icons manifesting themselves in ever larger, more elaborate and emotive forms.

Rone’s work swiftly become an unmistakable part of the Melburnian cityscape, his images suffusing the landscape at an almost unimaginable rate. Using their “calming beauty”, their innate contrast to the walls that they grace, they thus fuse its dirt with decorativeness to form an ephemeral elegance, a transient beauty amidst the chaos of the street.



Daek William hails from ‘Australia’s number one, middle of nowhere city’ -Perth. 

The focus of his work is to tell the stories of his interactions with the people and places he stumbles across. He combines the elements he observes and plays them out in origami crowns that dress the heads of his portraits. 

Mixing aerosols and acrylics his paintings are known for having monstrous amounts of details that are both light and complex and include a hint of lustful attitude.



If the artwork produced by The Yok ever came to life, it would be a fantastic army of eccentric, moustached, bike riding Gargoyle-esque creatures who may or may not have connections with Australian bushrangers.

The character-based works of this Australian-born artist have been spotted on the streets of countries near and far as he�s been making his way around the world.

For some years now, the droopy eyes and twisted moustaches of Yok�s black-lined characters have been staring aimlessly from Australian alleyways, zines and gallery walls.

A yearning to see and do more elsewhere saw him spend time and exhibit in places like Melbourne, Sydney, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Berlin, New York, Tokyo and London, collaborating with local artists on their city walls.
