Be On The Cutting Edge Of What Hot Locally
Introducing blüsh, the alias of Sydney based songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Ben Medveczky. Arriving with his debut release, ‘Don’t Lie’ released via October Records, blüsh showcases his knack for narrative-driven, hooky songwriting and playful production. Looking to the likes of Flume, BENEE, and What So Not for inspiration blüsh creates a unique take on bass-driven, pop music filled with glitchy, atmospheric beats.
blüsh discusses the meaning behind the lyrics, “I wrote the song about a girl who I was really into but who liked the attention I gave her rather than me. I think it’s a pretty relatable situation to know that you shouldn’t waste your time on someone but can’t help seeking their approval and affection.”
Already making a name for himself in the local scene as the drummer for much-loved R&B/Hip-Hop group
Boomchild, the group have earned recognition from the likes of FBi Radio and triple j Unearthed. Now, blüsh debuts his solo project, unveiling his lustrous electro-pop production and songwriting talents. October Records are excited to welcome blüsh to the roster!

SLUMBERJACK AND SYDNEE CARTER TEAM UP ONCE AGAIN FOR THE RELEASE OF THE ANTHEMIC NEW SINGLE 'POISON'
Following on from the release of their debut single 'Surrender' with Sweat It Out, SLUMBERJACK return with an anthemic collaboration with fellow Perth artist Sydnee Carter titled 'Poison'. Having previously teamed up with Sydnee on 'Afraid, Unafraid' from their hugely popular EP Fracture, the single became their biggest streaming record to date with over 13 million streams across platforms, was accredited ARIA Gold, and achieved a full add on triple j, all topped off with a magnetic performance for Like A Version.
With a proven winning formula, the new single ‘Poison’ is the perfect progression for the threesome, highlighting the evolution in their respective art, and complementing each other yet again in such balanced synchronicity. The dark undertones of the record was an unusual change of pace for Sydnee Carter who explains “With this track I was totally inspired by writing something different, the vibe of the song was quite dark and coincidentally at that time I was binge watching the TV series ‘Supernatural’. I found being involved in writing something outside of my comfort zone very exciting and we were all stoked with the end result.” The duo’s production shines through, having cultivated a moody soundscape by building tension throughout, whilst embracing the raw and compelling vocal delivery from Sydnee, all culminating in what is guaranteed to be a crowd favourite.
Discussing the new sound for the project, SLUMBERJACK share “It’s been a long time since we’ve felt this in tune with a track - it represents everything we’ve been working towards as musicians over the years. Sonically it’s the first time we really felt like we nailed what we call jokingly in the studio the “hi-def” sound. It’s supposed to feel like a pleasant wind. Musically it’s a step into a new era, bringing with us all the amazing stuff we’ve learnt along the way. And of course the incredible vocals of Sydnee Carter who we knew we had to work with again.”
Boasting over 100+ million streams across their releases to date, as well as certified Gold records for both their SLUMBERJACK EP and hit single ‘Fracture’, the duo continue to deliver works suitable for the biggest stages in the world. Adored the worldover for their continued innovation across genres, SLUMBERJACK have earnt themselves multiple Hype Machine number 1s and support from leading dance publications across with the world including EDM.com, Indie Shuffle, EARMILK, YourEDM, ThisSongSlaps, ThisSongIsSick, Nest HQ, and Run The Trap, with Dancing Astronaut praising them for their unique “dissonant future bass sound”.
Thrilled to return to their first live show in Perth following lockdown, SLUMBERJACK played a sold out HBF Stadium for WA Unlocked in July, whilst keeping busy in the online space, hosting their own Distillation Series, as well as jumping on for a set Party Favour and Dancing Astronaut’s live stream event alongside A-Trak, Dillon Francis, Sofi Tukker and more. SLUMBERJACK have dedicated themselves to their songwriting through isolation, sharing that ‘Poison’ is just the first taste of a stack of new music for the celebrated duo.
SLUMBERJACK’s new single ‘Poison feat. Sydnee Carter’ is out now on Sweat It Out.
Uncovering more of her story by exploring personal battles and triumphs through honest lyrics and infectious dark melodies, 'Trigger Heavy' is the third and arguably most powerful release from Sammi Constantine in 2020 so far.
"'Trigger Heavy' is a hard-hitting reality check for people who continuously self-project their insecurities and bitterness onto those around them. It is about finally standing up for myself, after a toxic whirlwind of emotional manipulation - taking back what I rightfully own and what I made for myself, without the fear of being able to say no.”
This release sees the second collaboration with Cyrus (Client Liaison, Rory Adams, CXLOE, GRAACE) as co-write and producer following the release of 'See What You See' last month. The track was also co-written by Janeva Burrill (Starley, Glades, Allday) and mastered by Chris Gehringer (Halsey, Rhianna, Dua Lipa, Lady Gaga).
The single will be accompanied by a self-directed cinematic style music video, co-directed and filmed by Trystin Sinnott. Set to be released Tuesday 26th May, the video takes a more playful approach to her trademark dark edge, portraying a tongue and cheek style story of Constantine’s endurance in relationships where she is being disrespected or manipulated. "I wanted to show a strong women taking a stand in situations where she is being taken advantage of, or not getting the respect she deserves. It is up to you to play with the outcome – you can be your own superhero in your story.”
