Sydney electronic dreampop artist Suiix has been described as “a blend of Julia Holter’s gauzy swirl with the clarion sharpness of St Vincent from which they forge deep psychedelic ooze”.
Following on from the release of sun-soaked jam ‘Hi’ and warped electronic pop single ‘Alright’, the past year has seen Suiix play Big Sound for the second consecutive year, become FBi Radio’s Artist of the Week, #1 on the AMRAP charts. and win the triple j Unearthed/NIDA competition for the latest single ‘Pacific Dreamer’ which you may have seen screening on Rage or Virgin Australia’s In-flight Entertainment.
“SUIIX’s take on modern electronica knows no boundaries….With a never-ending arsenal of sounds, diverse instrumental interplay and a mesmerising voice to match” (Aphra Magazine)

The band has attracted overseas attention and has signed with U.S based label Fresh Selects, who are home to releases from such acclaimed artists as Mndsgn, Kadjha Bonet, Jon Bap and Sir.
On the 24th of March, 2017, to much anticipation, they released their debut album. After having already received radio attention from JJJ, JJ, Fbi Radio and RRR amongst others; as well as being included on playlists such as Spotify’s Fresh Finds, Apple Music’s Indie R&B and being featured on Bandcamp, 2017 is set to be a big year for the group.

It seems a lifetime ago that singer/songwriter Katie Brianna released her debut EP in 2005, and was swiftly plucked from obscurity by the legendary Paul Kelly to record vocals on the track Jindabyne Fair, which appeared on the soundtrack to the critically acclaimed Australian film Jindabyne. This resulted in Katie receiving a finalist nomination in the 2007 CMAA Golden Guitars.
The distance Katie has traveled, personally and creatively, is evident in the nuanced adult tension of Victim or the Heroine, produced by award-winning musician and producer Shane Nicholson. The first single ‘Birmingham’ reached #6 on CMC’s Top 50 Countdown and earned Katie a Golden Guitar nomination for best Alt-Country album of the year. The Australian gave it 4 stars, and themusic.com.au called it “A masterpiece of an album”.
Bonniesongs’s unique style ranges from mandolin-based folk songs with sweet melodies to looping grungy polyrhythms created between guitar, vocals and drums. Her delicate vocal style brings a hush to the audience, telling stories of mice, birds, dinosaurs, death and video games. Bonniesongs’s ethereal qualities beguile you into a dreamlike trance in the style of contemporary folk/alternative artists such as Joanna Newsom and Bjork.
“(Bonnie)’s work makes great use of how conventional folk sounds, stylings and instruments can be flipped with a bit of imagination to become the basis for something more daring and scene-setting.” Jim Carroll, Irish Times
PHENO pronounced fee-no is electric guitarist/vocalist Jess Green’s new project and stage name. As Pheno, she is pioneering her own style of indie pop; Afro-Sci.

Pheno released her debut single in April 2017 ‘Dragon Year’ (Electric Ear Records) and will follow up with an EP in late may (to be launched at Leadbelly Newtown as part of 2017 VIVID). Pheno has played at Tedx Canberra and Candelo Festival as well as various side shows. Imagine Tune-Yards meets Peter Gabriel and you might get a sense of Pheno’s music. Her solo show incorporates, live loops, samples, layered vocals and blistering electric guitar.
DJ Dylabolical is one of Sydney’s finest purveyors of forgotten nostalgic pop music and upbeat mutli-genre party tunes.

“They will surely dim the lights and leave you wandering in the dark and getting lost in their songs.” – John Ritchie, musicfeeds.com
Okin Osan is Sydney-sider Rose Chan. Her sound is brought to you by 50’s rock ‘n’ roll and 80’s American punk. She is known for breaking the ice with off-beat banter and getting people, even corporate squares, dancing and twisting to sunny guitar rock. Okin Osan’s debut EP, “Are You Game?” was released 10 November 2016 through Healthy Tapes and has been played extensively on community radio stations nation-wide including: FBi Radio, RTRFM, 2ser FM, Radio Adelaide, SYN, Local Noise, 4ZZZ , Mountain District Radio, triple j Unearthed. The lead single “You Tell, I’ll Listen” was included in The Bridge on FBi’s Class Of 2016 compilation. The EP was also praised and reviewed by Chris Cobcroft of 4ZZZ, Ripe, The Le Sigh, and Eucalypt.
Emma Davis grew up in London and moved to Sydney eleven years ago in search of a little more light.
Having built her own studio in a nearby furniture joinery, the songwriter has spent the last year collecting sounds for her second record. Produced by Greg Walker (Paul Kelly, Tiny Ruins, Machine Translations), and to be released later in the year, the album sees Emma’s stirring lyrical details and intricate guitar work carefully woven with playful beats, found sounds and soft melancholic synth.
Jake Stone (DJ)
My name is Jake Stone, and I was the singer and songwriter in BLUEJUICE for about 13 years. Since then I’ve been writing, producing and DJing in some great venues across the country.
Bluejuice were a Triple J Hottest 100 regular known for singles like ‘Vitriol’, ‘Broken Leg’ and ‘Act Yr Age’, as well our high energy festival and club shows. During my time in the band I played regular DJ sets, and since then have been touring the country playing resident shows, festivals and clubs. I play dance floor music and I’m a pop fan at heart, so everything is a singalong. I’m always keen to play for good crowds that are excited to dance and aren’t afraid to get a bit weird.
