New Music – Go Wolf, Kashii, Yujen
New acts for you to check out from Belfast, London and Melbourne
OTR’s highlight at this month’s Belfast Music Week showcase, Go Wolf are Kitsune-endorsed electro-pop swingers with oodles of deadly, on-point tunes like “Voices” to their credit. The three-piece have been working with producer Rocky O’Reilly so expect to hear more from them in 2014
Gaz West is currently receiving a lot of mentions in the dispatches for the VIP remix of his booming house thumper “Rome”, a tune originally released on Kerri Chandler’s MadTech label last year. Now signed to Southern Fried, the London DJ and producer can be relied upon for more bangers in the next few months.
“Try It Over” is what’s gaining the Melbourne trio a lot of new music traction at the moment. It’s a gorgeous hazy, dubby loop of sweet textures and spacey Sweetback-esque electronics complete with vocals from Chet Faker. Earlier tracks like “Heirloom” and “Reset Me” are also worthy of attention.
