Clipp.Art Party Posse Launch New Melbourne Based Digital/Vinyl Imprint
If you’re a Melbourne, Sydney or Perth resident, chances are you’ve already heard of Clipp.Art. The Fitzroy based collective of music pals come together with like-minded local crews to throw lo-velocity dance parties under the Sounds Like A Good Time brand. Over the past six months, they’ve built a more-than-impressive portfolio of parties across Australia’s capital cities. Calling upon the deejaying talents of DJ Seinfeld, Ross From Friends, Bloody Mary, Demuja, DJ Boring, Coeo, Auntie Flo and more, on the reg. Apart from gifting us with these international treats, Clipp.Art offers space behind the decks to showcase burgeoning regional talent (Eduardo Muchacho, Georgia Bird, Shouse, James Pepper). Their current summer series of free events goes down every Sunday evening in Sydney’s “Byrondi” sector, with acts including Gerd Janson, Sandboards and Black Loops.
Clipp.Art takes another big step in their contribution to the local scene, with the launch of their own start-up record label. From February 2018 onwards, the new Clipp.Art imprint promises an ongoing series of weekly/bi-weekly digital cuts – complemented by the occasional limited edition split artist 12 inch. First up to the plates is Melbourne artist, Cassettes For Kids, with single release Pleasure – a smooth summer mover, built around a slow winding vocal drone that resolves itself inside an abrasive crescendo of shuffling paper-cut hi-hats and detroity pads. Add super-soaker levels of bass-line and you have the recipe for good times ahead.
