Slumberjack Ft KLP - The Others
In under a year, Perth duo SLUMBERJACK have gone from Triple J’s Unearthed Feature Artist of The Week (July 2014) to sold out shows in support of their debut self titled EP, millions of soundcloud spins, Shazam Future Hits list, a collaboration on Alison Wonderland’s feature album “Run” and casual name checking from indie dance dons Skrillex and Diplo.
Now from the EP comes “The Others ft. KLP”. With a #2 debut on the iTunes electronic album chart, SLUMBERJACK also featured “Body Cry” (a melody-driven EDM-meets-R&B fusion included in the weekly “Skrillex Selects” SoundCloud playlist series and EDM.COM’s Best of 2014 list) and “Horus” (a heavy-hitting and hypnotic Eastern-flavored track that climbed to #1 on Hype Machine and hit playlists made by the likes of Porter Robinson).
The duo’s most anthemic work yet, “The Others ft KLP” eschews any fears of tackling socially conscious subject matter in the form of a bombastic yet delicate expose on the difficult and personal issues surrounding bullying.
With praise for their music flowing in from Peking Duk, UZ, Ta-Ku, What So Not, SAFIA, GTA, Mr Carmac, Nina Las Vegas and more, SLUMBERJACK are emerging as one of the most exciting and daringly creative acts within Australia’s electronic music scene.
Bass-heavy and frenetic, dreamlike and lush, the music of SLUMBERJACK is born from its Perth-based creators’ passion for contrast: DJ/producers Morgan Then (a 23-year-old Borneo-bred classically trained pianist and former world-music artist) and Fletcher Ehlers (a 21-year-old Australia native who taught himself to make electronic music at age 11), the duo dig into their disparate backgrounds to push into thrillingly original sonic territory.
