MIMO - When Music is Your Fix

Flashback: The Prodigy – Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned

After a seven-year wait during which their leader Liam Howlett had ditched a whole album’s worth of material, disowned their disastrous 2002 self-parodying comeback single, “Baby Got A Temper,” and relieved Keith Flint and Maxim of their duties, The Prodigy were always going to struggle to live up to the ground-breaking success of 1997’s US & UK number one, The Fat Of The Land. So it was no surprise when […]


Introducing: Madeon

Inspired by the space disco of Sheila B. Devotion, the P-funk of George Clinton and the sampling techniques of the Chicago dance scene, the French house movement has produced an endless supply of loop-filtering duos (Cassius, Modjo, Galleon) since Daft Punk’s ground-breaking Homework in the mid-90s. But considering David Guetta and Bob Sinclar have all but abandoned their roots in favour of rubbing shoulders with pop royalty, 18-year-old Hugo Pierre […]


Elton John vs Pnau – Good Morning To The Night

Casablanca (2012)

An aging piano man more renowned for throwing tantrums than throwing shapes and perhaps the most eccentric act to emerge from the thriving Australian indie-disco scene?

Whereas his usual partner in crime’s articulate and witty rhymes have taken centre stage on their two collaborative efforts, it’s Le Sac’s ability to create an eclectic but […]


Introducing: Jessie Ware

In an era where the likes of The Voice and X-Factor have encouraged the notion that belting out a song with all the subtlety of a sledgehammer is the only way to prove one’s vocal ability, 27-year-old singer-songwriter Jessie Ware is a breath of fresh air. Anyone who’s listened to her guest spots on the post-garage of SBTRKT’s self-titled debut and the kaleidoscopic dubstep of Joker’s The Vision will already […]


Is the EDM Scene in Danger of Turning Against Itself?

Hip-hop rivalries have existed since the dawn of vinyl-scratching. Pop’s biggest icons have always had to deal with younger upstarts snapping at their heels. The punk scene has virtually encouraged aggression and confrontation between bands. But EDM has built its foundations on the idea of uniting people from all walks of life through the power of its hedonistic and escapist sound. However, the crop of artists responsible for EDM’s current […]
