Sydney-based songwriter/producer Jess Nitties writes and performs her music under the alias ‘Sparrows’. With 2 Hype Machine #1 tracks, Sparrows' music has been described as 'euphoric dance-pop' (The AU Review) and as 'fantastic electro-pop' (Purple Sneakers).
Her recent self-produced single, 'Over & Out' reached #27 on the Shazam Australia Top 100 Charts, received extensive support from Spotify & Apple playlists and was added to Triple J high rotation.
She recently toured Australia with Kira Puru and is currently working on a variety of collaborate projects.
Darwin born Thaylia is an electronic folk singer-songwriter-producer based in Sydney. She is of Greek/Aboriginal heritage and her childhood years was spent in the red dusty plains of a small outback town called Kununurra in the far north Kimberley's of Western Australia.
A recent a mentor for All Girl Electronic, Thaylia released 'Waiting' in 2018, the first single off her upcoming self-produced EP 'Into My Soul'. The track was added to Spotify curated playlists and received air time on FBi Radio, 4ZZZ and other radio stations around Australia.
A singer, rapper, guitarist, producer, mix & mastering engineer, Milan directs each and every aspect of the creative process, from the first chord struck on the guitar to the final master.
Having released a string of EPs and the largely instrumental beat tape Venus Fly Trap, all via her own label MXMAY, last year saw Milan unveil an extensive line of mood-based singles in ‘Unbounded’, ‘2063’, ‘Obscured’.
In late 2018, Milan signed with Astral People for her management, releasing ‘Drifting’ and more recently, ‘Green Light’. Co-produced by BLESSED, ’Green Light’ showcases Milan’s hip-hop sensibilities alongside atmospheric instrumentation, while continuing her theme of female empowerment.
Madeleine Carr aka SPORTS has hit some major milestones as a DJ around Australia playing at festivals the likes of Splendour, Lost Paradise, Wine Machine, THIS THAT and Spilt Milk as well as club and warehouse shows.
Her production debut came at the end of last year with a release on Universal’s sub label Of Leisure's Blue Line Steppers compilation album. Her track ‘Professor Bitch’ features a warped interview of Princess Nokia, thematically highlighting female empowerment and the track was featured as one of the singles on compilation.
2019 sees Madi focus more than ever on her production and music making career and how this shapes her as an artist.
Rebel Yell's dark, industrial and hazy musical output takes the receiver to a fervent dance floor, possessed by heavy basslines and mechanical spells.
Since the release of her debut EP Mother of Millions [Rice Is Nice 2016], and her single 'High Authority', Rebel Yell (aka Grace Stevenson) has evolved and developed her raw, gritty and industrial sound, seeing her support a vast range of artists ranging from Orbital, Charli XCX, Brooke Candy, Pertubator, Youth Code, These New South Whales, Rainbow Chan, Nun and more.
Mookhi is a Sydney based composer, producer, and electronic musician. Using a myriad launch pads, MIDI controllers and effects, she is able to build unusual and lush tapestries of sound live that are unique with every performance.
Since her self-made debut EP in 2017, Mookhi has toured nationally (landing spots at major festivals such as Splendour In The Grass, Groovin’ The Moo and Listen Out) and internationally with a buzzing performance at Sounds Australia’s Aussie BBQ as part of The Great Escape, 2018.
Carolina has shone a light on local music through her past regular shows on FBi Radio and as a Hip Hop DJ, and has played events such as Secret Garden Festival, Laneway Festival and Yabun Festival After Party.
Carolina also works for dance/hip-hop promoters BBE and has worked with Kali Uchis as a Tour Rep.
Importantly, she has become a mainstay on Sydney's cultural scene and an omnipresent voice for women of colour.
From the dusty crates of Sydney’s record stores comes Merph, a genuinely passionate and sound selector.
Now a go-to for warming a dance floor, Merph has recently supported the likes of Optimo, Tornado Wallace, Job Jobse, Harvey Sutherland, George Fitzgerald, and Black Loops - as well as opening the courtyard for CC:Disco at Summer Dance.
Alongside DJing, you'll find Merph running her event and workshop series Apparent Motion, working at Sydney's Network Connection Records, producing Limbs Akimbo on FBi Radio, and completing her PhD in Artifical Intelligence and Human-Robot Interaction.
