Longtime friends from Adelaide via Melbourne Mic Mills and Furious Frank have been on the front end of the Australian music scene since the early 2010’s, with releases on Aussie favourites Big Doint, Ken Oath and Butter Sessions over the years. Their next release via their own label Global Skywatch, enlists the help of Oz friends, Rings around Saturn and Francis Inferno Orchestra, to create a varied EP spanning from acid-tinged electro to cosmic Balearic excursions.
Our premiere, “Skywatch Dub”, sees Rings Around Saturn, of Analog Attic and Firecracker, go into after hours mode. A stripped back hybrid of 2-step UKG percussion and dub aesthetic is kept together by distant pads and echoing stabs. One for nodding your head to but also one for both the warmup and the dance floor; it’s a shining example of how sometimes all you need is restraint and a groove to have an effective club track.
GSW001 will be released on 10th September – pre-order your copy from Juno.
