Tom Studdy and Mike Who’s semi-regular Worldwide FM shows have provided an unprecedented insight into the underground music cooking in Sydney, a city that supersedes Melbourne for its picture-perfect panoramas, but not, commonly, its music.
Mike continues his efforts in undermining the latter assertion by launching Planet Trip Records with a four-tracker from Paul Jextra aka Caravan, who debuted in 2017 on Anatolian favourite Ken Oath. Riviera EP skips from dubbed out slow burners, through to zouk-influenced cosmic jams and lofi boogie, so it’s unsurprising to hear it’s already one fans in Antal, Raphael Top Secret, Lauren Hansom, Esa, CC:DISCO! and John Gomez.
Our pick ‘Croisette’ sits somewhere between the colourful club palette of D.K. and the uncoiled euphoria of Lipelis when the trumpet hits just after the half-way point. Fans of Second Circle, Antinote and Public Possession jump into Planet Trip’s RSS Feed for gratifying future updates.
