Slumberjack - Felon
With apparent influences ranging from Timbaland to Skrillex to J Dilla, TripleJ’s Unearthed Feature Artist of The Week (14th July) SLUMBERJACK are the latest young artists to break out of Western Australia’s bustling bass music scene. Having delivered impressive remixes for DCUP, Airwolf, Goldroom and Wave Racer and a collaboration with Sable, the Perth duo now turn their hand to original production with impressive new track ‘FELON’.
In a cluttered beat landscape, ‘FELON’ emerges with a sound uniquely their own. According to bandmate Fletch Ehlers “sitting snugly in the middle of a spectrum with one end being clubby, beats-oriented sounds and the other comprising of what you’d find if you searched for ‘beautiful, relaxing piano music’ on Youtube”. TripleJ House Party host KLP describes the track as “Melodic but at the same time crunchy and tight as hell. Love THIS!” while Morning Show presenter Zan Rowe titles it as “frenetically fun”. With an EP on the way and live show in development, the next several months sees Slumberjack touring Australia wide introducing more fans to their unique brand of future beat ‘chillrave’ music.
