Festival Review: Future Music Festival - Flemmington Racecourse, Melbourne (08.03.15)

Image captured by Perrie Cassie

In the wake of a year that should best be remembered as the festival killer, the management at Future Music must have at least been a bit anxious. Big Day Out was forced to skip the year due to losses, Soundwave Fest were forced to cut out not one but two whole cities from their line–up, and death was swift for the likes of Pyramid Rock, Harvest Fest and even Future Music Asia. Combine that with the fact that they had banked most of their money on one [non-recycled] major headliner who, despite having the draw of this being their first Australian tour, hadn’t released a full length album since mid–2013. So when Drake released his newest mixtape If You’re Reading this it’s Too Late, the festival probably saw it as much of a godsend as his fans did. But can a festival survive with one single [non-recycled] headliner?

Album Review: Gorgon City - Ready For Your Love (2014 EP)

Gorgon City are a deep [house] sensation for those willing to sit down and be lost in the trance. This force fueled by the North London duo, producers Kye "Foamo" Gibbon and Matt "RackNRuin" Scott, has been slowly but surely growing since 2012. As a follow up from their successful track "Real", it seems appropriate that the next sensation be called Ready For Your Love. If you want to get keen for these guys’ set at Future Music Festival, then this remix EP is the right set of tunes and jams for you.
