Ever since Salad Days in 2014, slacker rock purveyor Mac DeMarco has become a dignitary of sorts in the indie rock scene, with countless devout fans all across the world. Sydney’s Mickey Kojak must be a big fan, too. After all, he’s given Mac DeMarco’s Chamber Of Reflection a ravishing cover re-work, and the resulting languorously synthwavy and spacey soulful rendition is absolutely stunning, if not wonderfully, dreamily nostalgic. It’s a thorough transformation, and a thorough intoxicator.

I can’t believe it’s been over two years since Mickey Kojak scintillated us as a fresh face in the scene with smooth thumping spectacular, Feel My Pain, which he soon followed up with a well extolled debut EP. That’s how fast time has flown. The Australian talent, who’s also the lead singer of indie act The Tapes, makes his first appearance of 2017 with a contagious pumping single named Save Your Breath. A lambent effusion of quirky synths and rich thumping deep house spurn us into dance frenzy even as we’re overcome by utter and absolute pensive states of minds. Save Your Breath is out now on Mickey Kojak’s own label, OneLove. You can also stream Save Your Breath off Soundcloud below. Purchase links, here.

Sydney’s The Tapes makes their debut on a breezy warm, gauzy opaque gem named At All. They leave me utterly intoxicated and floating among the clouds with their atmospheric electronic song. Soulful vocals and dusky chill house beats are met at the crossroads by luscious whirring strings in a way reminiscent of chill ethereal, tactile resplendent The xx. At All is a spectacular first song from this new duo formed by producers Mickey Kojak and Andrew Grant, who’s also one half of La Mar.

Move Too Fast kicks off with a slow, deliberate pace, but it soon lives up to its name as a pumping beat and majestic bass suffuse the electropop meets thumping house track. Australia’s Mickey Kojak just released his debut EP, Alone, on Sweat It Out, and Move Too Fast is its sublime first single. The song’s luscious bounce and velveteen vocals emanate a RÜFÜS DU SOL sort of inebriating aura that culminates in emotion cresting hypnotic catharsis. Purchase Mickey Kojak’s Alone EP from iTunes.

And Australia continues to give us fresh young amazing producers! Surprise! Mickey Kojak is the latest newcomer to please my ears and take me to cloud nine. Don’t miss out on his deep house flavored, super sick debut single Feel My Pain, which features Tazzy, also a newcomer, on vocal duty. Though deep house leaning, Feel My Pain has an abundance of smooth R&B flavor from the 90s. It’s officially out worldwide on June 20, via Sweat It Out. I seriously can’t stop dancing in my chair every time I press play on this track. That’s a sign of a quality jam. I can’t wait to hear more music from Mickey Kojak.
