New release from Ishu outta Melbourne! Much respect.
--Hand Made is eclectic and full of bounce, ranging in style from hip hop to downtempo electronic soul grooves. Making use of chopped sample based melodies and synth infused rhythms, the album features contributions from Mighty Joe (USA), Mantra, Jeswon (Thundamentals), One Sixth, Candice Monique and Omar Musa.--
ILL ESHA: Always one to take her production up a notch, ill-esha's latest, 'Imaginary Friends' which came out November 1st on Muti Music, pushes the legendary producers epic sounds further than ever before. ill-esha once again blurs genre pigeonholes and delivers something based on moods more than fixed beat patterns, many of the tunes featuring interwoven sounds from jungle field recordings in Costa Rica.

More solid music coming out of Aus here. Westernsynthetics is releasing the remixed versions of his May Day Radio album from 2010 next month. The stand out tune from the album for me was The Machine...I had it on repeat for a long time-->
Here are the brilliant remixes to complete the labour of love spanning over 2 years...Much respect!!
--Immediately after completion of the May Day Radio album in early 2010 I set about approaching my favourite producers in the hope they would do a remix for me.The brief was simple, choose a track off the album and do whatever you want with it. The response was pretty overwhelming and humbling. The quality of the production and effort that went into these remixes is incredible. I had no money to pay these people, they did it as a love job.
Why then you ask has it taken so long for this album to be released? Various hurdles mostly to do with money and time combined to prevent me from giving this album the release it deserves. 100% of the profits from this release will go to the remixers themselves. So please show them some love.
Big thanks and big love to my sisters and brothers who took the time to remix my work. It's a very humbling experience to have peers re-interpret your work. For an artist like me it’s an incredibly rewarding thing to have other producers flip your music on its head and make it their own.--
