J O S H – P Y K E

 

JOSH PYKE has announced the third and final leg of his national Lone Wolf solo tour, adding shows this November/December in Castlemaine, Ballarat, Geelong, Warrnambool, Newcastle, Goulburn, Thirroul, Kincumber and Katoomba. Newcastle has already SOLD OUT and a second date is now on sale at Lizottes on Wednesday 26 November.

 

Melbourne-via-Warrnambool singer/songwriter and regular Josh Pyke tour partner, Jackson McLaren will open for the Victorian leg of the tour. Jackson McLaren & his band The Triple Threat have been riding the success of their debut full-length Songs To Greet The Dawn, which was released last May. Produced by John Castle (Josh Pyke, Washington, Gossling) the album maps the development of one of Australia’s most exciting young songwriters.

For the NSW leg, Sydney-based Jordan Léser will join the tour, who’s songs are arrows aimed straight to the heart. Her sense of place is evocative, her gift for melody arresting and her compositions reminiscent of her heroines – Kate Bush and Loreena McKennitt. Jordan’s shows are known for their intimate, spellbinding quality – fusing haunting vocals, exquisite musicianship and unforgettable choruses. Leser’s debut single ‘Brother Moon‘ premiered across the country on triple j with a video clip by award winning director Adam Callan (Thundamentals / Birds of Tokyo / Grinspoon).

 

The Lone Wolf tour has been a year-long pilgrimage for Pyke, selling out capital city theatres in February and March, followed by an extension on demand to another 12 towns and regional centres mid-way through the year. Somewhere in between, Pyke has managed to circle the country with the The Beatles White Album Concert and find time to campaign and perform via his project Busking For Change to collect desperately needed funds for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. Pyke has exceeded his goal of raising $50,000 for ILF through Busking for Change events over the past five-years.

 

Pyke’s  career has taken him around the world and over the course of a 10 year career, he still climbs, releasing the ARIA-nominated and  album, The Beginning And The End of Everything last year, featuring the lead single ‘Leeward Side‘. These shows will be the very last chance to see Josh Pyke’s carefully curated Lone Wolf solo set, and the last shows as part of The Beginning And The End Of Everything album touring.

A great, natural way to keep your skin hydrated and nourished all day long, Bali Body is a 100 per cent natural tanning oil containing a natural SPF giving your skin a deep golden glow.

Made from five organic and raw ingredients, Bali Body does not sit on your skin like the average chemically enhanced tanning oils, instead it penetrates deep below the surface leaving your skin feeling smooth and emitting a natural glow. Used as a hydrating night time mask, everyday moisturiser or when you get out of the surf, Bali Body is the perfect addition to your daily skin ritual.
Bali Body is completely raw, organic and vegan friendly. With the combination of organic oils that assist in the reduction of cellulite, eczema, psoriasis and dry skin, Bali Body is essentially a skin food.
B A L I – B O D Y – I N S I D E – A N D – O U T
Cocos Nucifera Oil (Coconut Oil)

+ Nourishes Skin, Coconut oil takes care of this aspect due to the presence of medium chain fatty acids like Capric Acid, Caprylic Acid, Lauric Acid and Vitamin-E

+ Protects skin, The stable, saturated fats of coconut oil form a protective layer over the skin, extensively cutting down damage due to over exposure to the sun

+ Fights infections, Thanks to the antimicrobial and anti-fungal properties of fatty acids like Capric Acid, Caprylic Acid, Caproic Acid, Myristic Acid and Lauric Acid present in Coconut Oil, your skin is guarded against infections

+ Retains Moisture, The stable saturated fats reduce the loss of moisture from the skin considerably by forming nourishing layer on the skin

+ Soothes and Conditions the Skin, Coconut oil soothes skin in case of possible inflammation resulting from strong sun, dust, allergenic particles, or other environmental factors. It also keeps skin smooth and gives it a shiny glow

+ Tones and tightens, The properties in coconut oil can assist in reducing cellulite and premature ageing, keeping your skin tight and toned

 

Olea Europaea (Olive Oil)

+ Olive oil is packed with antioxidants, the body’s built-in defence against free radicals.

Free radicals lead to a loss of collagen and elastin, two things in your skin that keep you looking young. This tells us that olive oil is a great natural weapon in the battle against the effects of premature aging.

 

Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed oil

+ Grape Seed oil is just what it sounds like – it is the oil extracted from seeds of grapes. Though the extraction process for these oils sounds complicated, what they do for your skin is very simple: Grape seed oil can treat acne, reduce dark under-eye circles, moisturize and tighten your skin.

 

Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) oil

+ Jojoba oil has many organic and mineral properties, making it the perfect raw skin food to help you keep that natural glow. It helps to fight facial lines, skin scarring and fatty tissue. It is also amazing in challenging skin circumstances like acne, eczema and psoriasis.

+ Jojoba oil relieves aggravated skin and improves the natural development of collagen. (Yes babes, we said collagen). It also offers efficient protection towards the sun and fights the symptoms of aging like wrinkles and fine lines.

 

Aqua (water)

+ Water is essential to maintain the optimum skin moisture and deliver essential nutrients to the skin cells. It replenishes the skin tissue and increases its elasticity. This helps delay the appearance of signs of ageing like wrinkles and fine lines.

+ Aqua keeps the skin well hydrated and glistening, thereby, enhancing that golden glow.

Australian swimwear label Zimmermann is continuing its global reign with the release of the label’s Resort Swim 2015 campaign.

Setting sail amongst the waters of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, the campaign captures the sleek sophistication and relaxed sensuality of the collection. Fashion photographer Darren McDonald shot the collection, in which his images encapsulated the modern bohemian spirit of the Zimmermann woman perfectly.

The new collection is heavily influenced by the 70s, with an elegant yet easy to wear aesthetic. The designs might on first glance seem playful and carefree, yet in true Zimmermann style, they are intricately detailed with corseted structure, sheer mesh panelling and custom trimmings. With collections like these, it’s not hard to see why Zimmermann remains front and centre on the global swimwear scale.

The Red Bull Music Academy (RMBA) takes its Club Night series around the country once again this September with Japan’s DJ Mitsu The Beats kicking off the event. Repped by the Jazzy Sport crew out of Tokyo, the host city for this year’s RBMA takeover, DJ Mitsu brings over a decade of experience and a command of hip-hop and house grooves down under. We had the privilege of chatting to him about all things beats, collaborations and the RBMA.

 

You’ve probably been asked this question a million times, but for your Australian fans can you tell us where the name DJ Mitsu the Beats comes from?

It was inspired by another DJ that I liked that went by the name ‘DJ Mitsu’ and I thought my mission was making good beats so I added ‘the Beats’.

 

Where in Japan are you from and how long have you been DJing?

I’m originally from the city called Asahikawa in Hokkaido Pref. And I’ve been DJing for 20 years or so.

 

What was it about DJing and beat making that sparked your interest?

I saw a DJ battle on TV and from there I started practicing scratch and tricks everyday. I just love experimenting with different beats and pushing music in new and exiting directions.

 

How would you describe your music?

Some people describe my music as kinda ‘jazzy’ but my style and flavours keep changing and evolving so I find it hard to describe as one genre or even a mixed genre.

 

Prior to getting involved with the Red Bull Music Academy did you know much about it?

Yeah, I knew some pretty amazing artists globally were involved. I’d been checking various artists doing lectures with RBMA…and Red Bull did basecamp with young local beat-makers in my hood (in Sendai city) where I performed at the after party. Also, I did an interview with RBMA UK (London) when I was there for tour and did some live DJ stream programs for RBMA New Zealand (Auckland)… so other than being aware of other artists who have been involved – I’ve come in contact with RBMA personally a fair bit.

 

What is the most exciting part about touring with the Red Bull Music Academy?

Connecting and communicating with various artists. I’m especially excited to meet COIN BANKS and HAZEL this time.

 

Is this your first time in Australia?

Yes this is my first time.

 

What are you most excited to see and do whilst you’re in Australia

The great nature and Uluru!

 

What kind of beats have you been working on at the moment?

At the moment I’m making beats that are techno-influenced with a downtempo. which means I spin a lot when I’m DJing.

 

Who would you love to collaborate within the next year?

HAZEL!

Electronic muso, SBTRKT has collaborated with director Fons Schiedon to create a unique animated video for the track NEW DORP. NEW YORK. (feat. Ezra Koenig). The video sees the creature that graces the cover of Wonder Where We Land come to life, and roam through the surreal, shadow filled streets of an imagined American metropolis.

In addition, SBTRKT follows a run of new material with the release of The Light feat. Denai Moore, ahead of his much-anticipated second album Wonder Where We Land, which is set to be released this Friday 26th September on Young Turks / Remote Control. Listen to the latest track below.

SBTRKT will be in Australia later this Summer for the Falls Music & Arts Festival and Southbound.

Rdio Australia is excited to announce the first instalment of Rdio Sessions – a new series of live and intimate recordings available exclusively on Rdio. Championing both up-and-coming and established artists, Rdio Sessions will showcase the hottest acts across various genres in ways that fans have never heard before. The first act to be launched as part of Australia’s Rdio Sessions is UK indie-rock quartet, The 1975.

Already dubbed one of 2014’s biggest break out groups, The 1975 have taken music fans by storm this year, playing 400 shows globally in 2014 including powerful performances at Splendour In The Grass and various side shows. As part of their live Rdio Sessions recorded in Sydney earlier this year, the Brit-rockers have performed three stunning acoustic renditions of fan favourites “Chocolate”, “Sex” and “Is There Somebody Who Can Watch You”.

Throughout the recording, the group’s signature sound was stripped back to produce a raw, yet beautifully honest and unadulterated recording, unheard by fans – until now. Lead singer, Matt Healy’s haunting vocals are sure to impress new and existing fans who will be pleased to know that the band will be returning to Australian shores in 2015 for a national tour.

The 1975’s exclusive Rdio Sessions & 30 million other tracks are available to listen now on www.rdio.com
