Melbourne’s Statue, the live percussion-based dance project erected by two drummers, Tom Gould (of World’s End Press) and Nicolaas Oogjes (of NO ZU), first caught our ear last year with their percussion-driven debut 12” “Built” of raw synths, drum machines and haunting vocals. And the duo have now returned to Cut Copy’s Cutters Records with their second offering, a new four-tracker called “Monument”. According to the label, the EP is a “reflection of the human and a testament to dancefloors both indoor and out.” Today, we’re treated to a stream of the record’s opening track “Entrance”, a ten-minute percussive dancefloor odyssey. Blast it above.

The “Monument” EP, which also features an expansive remix of the title track from recent ESP Institute alumni Moscoman, is out now on Cutters Records. Buy it here.

Tomorrow is party time! La.Ga.Sta. is driving to London for the second “ΓΚΑΡΑΖ” (Garage) event at our favorite hangout Dalston Superstore. Driving with us on August 5th will be two of our favorite peeps, Cut Copy’s frontman Dan Whitford under his dance alter-ego Bobby Boomerang and fellow Aussie DJ/producer and Cutters Records very own Knightlife. They are joined by resident Vangelis, Nic Fisher, Fannar and Wes Baggaley. It’s gonna be epic fun. Get on down! For more info head here.

Bobby Boomerang (Cut Copy/Cutters Records)

Cut Copy’s frontman and Cutters Records label boss Dan Whitford recently stepped out from behind the microphone to drop his ace debut solo release, a two-tracker called “Uncharted Waters”, under his dance alter-ego Bobby Boomerang. Dan Whitford has long held a fondness for the deeper reaches of dance music, having DJed an eclectic mixture of house and disco and in Melbourne’s clubs some years before keyboards and guitars cross pollinated to bring Cut Copy into existence. And in some ways his first solo release is a musical homecoming. On “Uncharted Waters” we find Bobby Boomerang returning to its place of origin to explore his reinterpretations of Balearic house and techno, generated by experiments with his menagerie of vintage drum machines, samplers, and keyboards.

Knightlife (Cutters Records)

Australian producer and DJ Mike Gamwell, aka Knightlife, who now has found home in deepest Bath in the UK, never ceases to amaze us. Since first emerging from Melbourne’s smoke-machine laden dancefloors during disco-tinged house revival of the late ’00s, Mike Gamwell’s penchant for forward-thinking electronica paired with meticulous production has entrenched him in the upper echelons of Australian producers. Signed to Cut Copy’s authoritative Cutters Records in 2007, over the next few years Gamwell released a string of excellent EPs and top-notch remixes that succintly encapsulated the sights and sounds of ever-evolving electronic landscape.
