Cut Copy’s frontman Dan Whitford just dropped his debut solo release under his dance-oriented alter-ego Bobby Boomerang. Consisting of two original tracks, the “Uncharted Waters” 12” finds the man in charge of Cutters Records exploring his “reinterpretations of Balearic house and techno, generated by experiments with his menagerie of vintage drum machines, samplers and keyboards.” “Where Am I?” and “Uncharted Waters” are both finely crafted tune, taking the listener on a rich musical journey. You can preview the whole thing above.

The “Uncharted Waters” EP, the first of a series of new releases from Bobby Boomerang, is out now in both vinyl and digital formats via Cutters Records. Get your copy here.

The last time we heard from Melbourne-based producer/DJ Mike Gamwell, aka Knightlife, was late last year, when he contributed the track “Don’t Stop” to Cut Copy’s excellent “Oceans Apart” compilation. Now, he’s back with a brand-new track called “Heavy Down”, the first taste from his upcoming four-track “VII” EP, set to arrive in August on Cutters Records. Somewhat minimal and more stripped back than Knightlife’s previous releases, “Heavy Down” finds him still operating in top form. Blast it above.

Knightlife is also touring with Cut Copy’s Dan Whitford & Tim Hoey through July in the US.
