Henry Hicks AKA Horatio Luna is a composer, bassist and producer best known as a founding member of Melbourne future-jazz collective 30/70. His latest solo single “Fuck The System” is out now and provides a taste of what to expect from his forthcoming record Boom Boom, due for release in September.
Growing up in Vanuatu, this song changed our lives. The monologue set-up and how the beat drops! I’ll never forget asking my mother about this song in primary school, the look on her face! I love how Shaggy’s verse comes in and I have no idea what he’s saying but it sounds amazing.
The Specials – Ghost Town
Massive groove and an eerie melody were the things that grabbed me straight away and invite into this weird world that The Specials have created. “Ghost Town” beautifully represented in this punk ska sci-fi video.
Roots Manuva – Witness The Fitness
Enough said! The biggest beat with the funniest video, whoever thought of this concept is a genius!
Onefour – Ladz in the Hood
Authentic Australian underground drill, it’s dope AF and its one of the first times we’re seeing a very real look into what these guys live with growing up in the outer suburbs in Australia. Not to mention the hardest beats to come out of the country. They make big tunes and big videos, all really well produced. So good the cops have shut down all shows and all touring in Australia.
The Brian Jonestown Massacre – Anemone
Psychedelica and simplicity. I love all the artists associated with this band and movement. It’s a wild story and the music is beautiful.
