2016 looks to be UV boi فوق بنفسجي's year after announcing a new single, EP & tour
The producer will be hitting up the capital cities in support of his new EP「L-UV」, bringing Collarbones and Gill Bates with him.
UV boi فوق بنفسجي has to be one of my favourite Australian producers in the game - not because his music is the best on the Australian market right now, but more due to his effort to differ himself from the rest of the Australian music scene and remain unique, despite many imitations popping up of late. In fact, it took me until Gods, his Ryan Hemsworth collaboration that emerged last year, to start taking him seriously as a producer and pay attention to the UV hype - and I'm damn glad I did. Since Gods, UV boi فوق بنفسجي has had a hell of a ride - he's dropped quality collaborations with Young Franco and Deer, released mountains of on-point remixes for everyone from Banks to Japanese Wallpaper to Tkay Maidza, and toured around the country with some of EDM's biggest and most hyped names, but he's not stopping there. Following up from If She, If He, which saw UV take us on a club-infused, Yung Lean-styled ride last year, UV has released Show You, the second single from his upcoming 「L-UV」EP set to arrive on March 18. Show You continues the mellow vibe of If She, If He, with emerging Brisbane trio MTNS adding a soft R&B tinge onto the single's angelic synth work and bass work. Further solidifying himself as an artist set to explode this year (if he hasn't already), UV boi فوق بنفسجي will be heading around the country for a two-month long tour, which features some heavyweight support slots in the form of the Flume-remixed Sydney duo Collarbones and emerging Brisbane rapper Gill Bates, who scored a slot at Queensland's adaptation of our beach-based, good vibes-packed Castaway Festival.
