Slumberjack. You may not have heard of them yet, but as their eponymous debut EP makes the rounds, you may just perk up and take notice. Hailing from Perth, Australia, the duo delivers a smashing 4-track compilation of pure Aussie magic. As we know, this corner of the globe has streamlined creative style and flavor across the board in the electronic scene, and Slumberjack is no exception.
The opener features another phenomenal Australian talent, KLP. This gorgeous singer, producer and DJ lends a delightful vocal piece to “The Others.” She brings up the instrumentals with a slow build, opening into mad drum and bass vibes calling higher and higher until opening into the shimmering strings and synths that wind around her velvet voice. Slumberjack shows that they have style and class pumping through unique sounds and impressive variations between each track.
“Horus” comes next. Another delightfully unique and powerful track, popping with tasty hip-hop feels and the echo of a distant cry to the stars. The string lines in this one are reminiscent of a battle tune, thundering towards victory on bass drums and subs.
Without giving too much away, Slumberjack has a lot more in store. The EP comes as their first extended release and should prove to skyrocket their insatiable sounds towards more originals and hopefully a North American tour in the near future. Watch out for more Australian heat sneaking its way onto fair shores.
