The recent commotion over Australian R&B/soul duo Silent Jay & Jay XL’s tantalising mini album has been pretty exemplary of Melbourne’s ever-expanding creative prowess, and surprise, surprise, it’s not letting up any time soon.
30/70 Collective should be the newest addition to your Aussie radar thanks to Peckham’s finest tastemaker and globe-trotting DJ Bradley Zero lauding the group via his NTS radio show in the last couple of months. The nine-piece exploratory soul collective have been making a racket in their local neighbourhood with a 15-track deep debut of polyrhythmic time structures, astrological explorations of 1970s funk and generally good vibes polished with strange electronic flourishes.
With an increasing amount of attention on the group, a repress of their album Cold Radish Coma last month was inevitable. Today we’re able to bring your attention to our favourite track off the record; an aural bloom of Fender Rhodes, soft horns and natural groove. A bewildering array of fluttering melodies and counter-counter-harmonies will keep this hovering in your ears for weeks after – you’ve been warned.

Cold Radish Coma is available to buy on digi and vinyl now via Bandcamp.
