Acquaint yourself with Australian club music thanks to Sidechains' new compilation

The all-Australian compilation includes new tunes by Deer, Monomyth and SINIQ, among others.

When talking about Lewis Cancut's new single Say Ok the other day, I brought up how there's this new wave of really left-field club music coming out from across the world, and how apart from a few odds and ends, there's a lack of it coming out of Australia, Luckily, the Sidechains crew has our backs with this following up from the compilation last year with another stellar release. Sporting everything from synth-soaked future-bass-esque beats, to staccato PC Music-esque melodies, to heaving 808s, the Sidechains compilation has to be one of the most diverse releases of the year thus far, and if that's not enough to make you listen, it boasts all Australian artists, some already well-known within the field, and some just emerging with their debut singles.

I'm not going to go through every release as the compilation as the release is pretty lengthy, but it definitely has some real stand-out singles. The opener, DEER'S Nightfall, plays with trap influences for an invigorating, blissful number, where as HI LIFE's debut So Good oozes with fruity, PC Music-esque synth stabs, which also is mimicked on Donatachi's Bubblegum, but in more of a darker tone. Where as on the other side of spectrum, SINIQ's Luminary and James Lakes' Quack deals with heaving 808s and quick-firing percussion. As a whole, the compilation is incredibly forward-thinking, dealing with genres and tones of music left largely unexplored across the Australian scene, which is pretty damn rad to see. Have a listen to the twelve track collection below.
