Ok, so slowly we’re getting back on track. This here is the October Mixtape, chockablock full of my fave tunes of October. Some absolute stunners in here – the Lower Spectrum EP was one I kept on coming back to, as was Tame Impala‘s record, Collarbones‘s second full length, as well as the Love Migrate disc. Then there were those big massive tracks – that Hermitude remix of Presets‘ ‘Ghosts’. MY GOSH.
All of the tracks are pretty excellent…and I think it’s one of the better tapes so far.

So the Loon Lake boys have been kicking around for a little while now. After releasing two EPs over the past year and a bit, the guys seem to be hitting their stride, with some love on both community radio as well as triple j.
Their last official single, ‘Cherry Lips’ is a really great affair, with this drum groove that, I think, helps set the track apart from all the other indie pop out there. And then there’s all these remixes. You can stream all four over on their soundcloud, but I got my two faves just below.
First up is a remix from Nick Nolan, Loon Lake’s drummer. This one absolutely nails the melodic funky groove vibe. Really really dig it.
Next up is the remix from Clubfeet. Getting that true summer vibe, complete with added cowbell, this is nuts. Suits the awesome Melbourne weather that today has brought too.
The Cosmo Black boys are back again with another great track, this time an original. When Night Becomes the Morn is this big, loopy (both in the ‘hey, look, i’m crazy’ and loops of sounds, music kinda way), percussive electro track that is definitely going to take Cosmo Black from that band you think you’ve heard of but not sure where to that band that sing that awesome song When Night Becomes the Morn.
The single is going to feature a DCUP remix too. DCUP is the go-to dude at the moment aye? Remix is a funky house rendition of the original with this killer keys motif that goes right through. Awesome. Check it down below.
If you like both the original and the DCUP remix but want even more, well then you’re a fuckin greedy bugger.
You also may be in luck…but you gotta get yourself to a Cosmo Black show. Towards the end of the year, the boys are selling a limited edition of the single with some extra cool artwork and a remix from SidWho? and Mitolo. These dudes are from another extra talented Adelaide crew. You know, you may have heard of them. They’re only called THE SWISS and they fuckin rock.
fuck it’s good to see some local djs doing some mega cool shit. Like, it’s bloody awesome.
Melbourne kid Airwolf has put his electro/funk touch to a few tracks. And yes. Man!
First up, he’s done the two AEONS singles that they’ve got on their latest EP (Have you checked out that EP yet? Hope you have. Jump HERE is you missed it). He’s taken the clothes off Beyond The Satellites, touched it, and laid it down to rest a bit (Translation: He’s stripped it back, made it soar a little more). Really great remix. He’s also had his way with Where The Sky Meets The Sea. This is mean. No stripping here. If anything, he’s added clothes! Well…added layers. picked up the pace a little too. Bam!
Second. He’s sexily discofied DCUP‘s To Be In Love. Great remix and funks shit up!
