SoundCloud Wrap: Paul Stix at UNDR ctrl
Man about town and UNDR ctrl agency’s Paul Stix has been in and around the music business for almost 15 years, making it easy to dub him as one who knows his stuff. Apart from representing more than a handful of Australia’s best emerging electronic artists, Stix also knows how to throw an event or two, with his upcoming UNDR ctrl Launch Party being the newest one.
Happening this friday at Sydney’s The Backroom, expect ARIANE, CANYONS, EGO, JAWZ, JENSEN INTERCEPTOR, LUEN, OLYMPIC AYRES, PARKSIDE, SOFTWAR, VAN SHE and WORDLIFE to provide you with the night’s beats. Also, dancing dude Tommy Franklin will be making a special appearance, so make sure your boogie game is strong on the night.
Ahead of this extravaganza, we got Stix to share with us his top five picks for our SoundCloud Wrap series.
“Get your teeth into this re-working from this rising NSW chap. Currently setting clubs alight with his debut DJ tour and heaps more swag coming from the studio.”
“Damn fresh new remix of Andrea Balency from the boys who killed it at Big Sound. New EP and tour before the end of the year.”
“Very hot property at the mo with a recent EP/tour with Motorik. This track’s taken from his Boys Noize Records EP which has just come out. Big times ahead for this sporting car of a man.”
“Take one Chet Faker, add a dash of Roland Tings and you get this beautiful remix. Heck I was 18 in 1998… dem were the days!”
JUST A GENT
“So many to pick from this hugely talented 17 year old. This is a remix for The Aston Shuffle who he just supported on their big national tour. Look out for JAG’s own EP to drop any time now and some extended global touring! Watch out for this guy!”
“Latest single to drop from the guys’ forthcoming ‘Leisureplex’ EP – out 18 Sept. Catch them touring nationally in October.”
K.I.M (THE PRESETS)
“His first EP in years recently came out with Motorik Records and it’s a bloody ripper. He’s been DJing all over the joint with the Motorik crew, fun times!”
“Lead track off Jack & Chris’ recent Modular EP. For da cluuuuurb. Catch them DJing all over AUS this summer.”
“Finishing off with a non UNDR ctrl artist but a class act who played at our Not Another Boat Party earlier this year and has been rising through the ranks ever since. This is a TUNE!.”
