WIN: Ryan Hemsworth & Kaytranada Double Passes
Everybody knows the wonderful talents of RYAN HEMSWORTH. The man has used his unique production skills to grow from a relatively unknown artist, into an electronic star over the last year and honestly doing something that crazy on your own is definitely something big.
His latest EP Still Awake is an instant dance floor filler as are his reworks of music-monsters FRANK OCEAN, A$AP ROCKY and various other heavyweights. The Canadian-born producer is just blowing up and luckily we will be seeing a lot more of his fantastic beats as his music spreads across the globe.
Fellow Canadian-born producer KAYTRANADA, is relatively new in the Australian electronic scene. We have become huge fans and even asked him to create a Soundcloud Wrap for us which you can check out HERE. His smooth disco with a hint of dirty trap have just been spreading across the internet like the plague and has earned him recognition from CHILDISH GAMBINO aka Donald Glover and TNGHT. KAYTRANADA has been producing since the age of 14 and has his practice has definitely paid off as his music becomes more and more addictive.
RYAN HEMSWORTH and KAYTRANADA have teamed up for an Australian and New Zealand tour with their first show in Auckland on August 22. The boys will then make their way over the Tasman to perform in Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and of course Sydney, so there is definitely a Canadian takeover happening throughout late August. The Melbourne event will be one of the biggest shows of the tour as RYAN HEMSWORTH and KAYTRANADA will be joined by a series of national and local artists for a party being thrown by Operatives, called Espionage, at the exciting Brown Alley.
The producers will be joined by our good friend PACES as well as Melbourne-ite’s AMIN PAYNE, SILENT JAY, FUGITIVE and JPS, so you can expect a huge line-up and a huge night in general at Operative’s Espionage party. You can also check out the rest of the dates of their tour below if Melbourne ain’t your party city.
