Seven Things We Learned at the Beats Sound Symposium

In recent months Apple has aggressively expanded its digital entertainment platforms, spearheaded by the streaming service Apple Music and the 24 hour radio station Beats 1. Beats 1 is headed up by Zane Lowe, who positioned himself as a premier tastemaker during a 12-year stint at BBC Radio 1. He was joined by an eclectic panel at Studios 301 in Sydney for the first Beats Sound Symposium to take place in Australia, to discuss music production, the evolution of music distribution, and the changes that are ahead for the industry at large. Moderated by Beats by Dre President Luke Wood, the panel included musician Jarryd James, Eleven label president John Watson, producer Anna Lunoe, and CEO of ARIA Dan Rosen.

Single of the Day: Jarryd James feat. Julia Stone "Regardless" (2015)

The beautiful falsetto of Jarryd James is back in his new single "Regardless", this time in a perfect pairing with Julia Stone.

Live Review: Angus & Julia Stone - Margaret Court Arena, Melbourne (27.02.15)

Well sweet Jesus, Margaret Court Arena. You make for one fine live music venue, don’t you! When I first heard that MCA was expanding her purpose beyond tennis and hosting an array of concerts and gigs, I had difficulty picturing this concept but only because the last time I was here was well before her renovation, which was debuted at this year’s Australian Open.

Live Review: Broods + Jarryd James + East - Oxford Art Factory, Sydney (01.08.14)

It’s halfway through Broods’ set when the opening notes of “Bridges” cascade over the audience. Immediately, 200 iPhones shoot up, a sea of bobbing lights in the bluish dark of the Oxford Art Factory. The bass thuds and synths swirl, and when Georgia Nott’s vocals start to climb and the chorus hits – a skittish house mix with a core of sugar pop – the room explodes in a mess of strobes and jumping bodies.
