Take 5 with Shedbug

Shedbug may be 21, but his reputation already precedes him in the Melbourne dance community. His sometimes raw, sometimes dreamy DJ sets have earned him prime gigs around Melbourne. He’s also started touring an all-hardware live set, which showcases his dusty and expansive production chops evident in tracks like ‘Captain’ and his Incipience EP. On top of his own releases, he’s even launched a record label – Salt Mines. Co-founded with fellow Melbourne lo-fi extraordinaire Rudolf C, Salt Mines is fast becoming a highly respected vinyl-only imprint. With further exciting releases round the corner (and watch this space on that front!) we sat down with Shedbug to Take 5:

1. Aux 88 - Direct Drive (Direct Beat)

On a big electro binge lately. This classic is a pretty good summary of what I want to hear right now.

2. Lou Karsh - Transitional (LKR Records)

Probably my favourite track to come out of Aus this year, and that’s saying something. Massive burner.

3. Lucretio - Dangerous Love (Machines State)

Been rinsing this one for a long time and still not tired of it. Lucretio is the king of the simple feel good lo-fi looper.

4. DJ Seinfeld - Flyin’ Thru Sunrise (Cute Cut)

Keep your ears on this guy. Churns out hits like it’s nothing. Can’t wait for his first proper release.

5. Antonio - Clara (UNintelligent Trax Outsourcing)

Sick artist. Sick tune. Sick label. So much energy in this tune. Inspiring.
