Playboi Carti

^^

When: Wednesday 30th May
Where: Enmore Theatre

Illusive Presents and Frontier Touring are delighted to welcome Playboi Carti to Australia for the very first time in March. Young Carti will be stopping by Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane, Sydney and Auckland to deliver his chart busting tracks from his self-titled 2017 debut mixtape, out now worldwide on AWGE/Interscope Records. Released on April 14, Playboi Carti debuted at #12 on the Billboard 200 charts. The mixtape features Carti’s two hit singles ‘Magnolia’ and ‘wokeuplikethis*’ both of which embody the 22-year-old rapper’s experimental but hook-heavy sound. The songs spent the summer simultaneously climbing the Billboard 100 chart and Spotify’s RapCaviar playlist, as Carti performed at festivals across North America and Europe, solidifying his place at the forefront of today’s breakout hip-hop artists. Playboi Carti’s breakout hit ‘Broke Boi’ arrived in spring 2015, around the same time that Playboi Carti made his debut at SXSW and ended up crossing paths with A$AP Rocky. Shortly afterwards, Playboi Carti relocated to the Bronx to begin work on his debut project. No stranger to performing live, Carti recently sold out his debut headlining tour, including shows in New York, LA, Atlanta and London. Vevo dropped into the first of two sold out nights in London to capture him perform ‘Magonolia’ and ‘wokeuplikethis*’ to a crowd that knew every single word.

The Presets

^^

When: Saturday 23rd June
Where: Enmore Theatre

It’s been a decade since this duo - Julian Hamilton & Kim Moyes - first set festival fields alight with breakthrough anthems like “My People”, “Talk Like That” and “This Boys In Love”. The pair had been making waves in Sydney’s clubs since forming in 2003 and signing to the influential Modular Records, but it was their 2008 Oz chart topper, Apocalypso, that first introduced them to wider audiences. That album was certified triple platinum and won them six ARIA Awards in their homeland. By contrast, 2012’s critically acclaimed Pacifica was comparatively introspective but epic gigs around the world - from Glastonbury Festival and Coachella to Splendour In The Grass - forged the duo’s reputation as Australian electronic music trailblazers. Continuing in this tradition, The Presets’ fourth album HI VIZ - which lands May 18 - delivers a ‘back to basics’ set, deliberately curated as a proxy for The Presets’ live experience. HI VIZ has already been teased with two songs - the urgent “Do What You Want” dropped late last year and featured in triple j’s Hottest 100 songs of 2017 and the sweeping “14U+14ME”, which is among the tastemaker station’s most played songs of 2018. Most of the album has been mixed by John Hanes who created the classic mix of “Uptown Funk” as well as working more recently with the likes of Sia, Bruno Mars and Major Lazer. Apocalypso collaborator Scott Horscroft also mixed several HI VIZ tracks while Flume engineer Eric J mixed “Beethoven” - the pair’s sly nod to their Conservatorium years. Both Julian and Kim individually produce other artists outside their Presets collaborations, so it’s not surprising that they, once again, are credited as Producers for their own album. It’s also apt that some of the artists with whom they’ve worked should make HI VIZ cameos. For example, “Are You Here?” features indie rockers the DMA’s, whose latest release was co-produced by Kim. Similarly Alison Wonderland - for whom The Presets recently created a widely played remix - guested on the beaty “Are You Out Of Your Mind?” while Jake Shears from Scissor Sisters added vocals to the dark’n’steamy “Tools Down”. Joining The Presets across all their Australian tour dates, Roland Tings will bring his propulsive cuts and dynamic live set to the fore. Fresh off the heels of releasing his new, stripped back house track “One Hundred” feat. HIGH HØØPS, the Melbourne producer will be kicking things off each evening with his blistering live set.

Pendulum

^^

When: Tuesday 3rd July
Where: Enmore Theatre

Pendulum burst onto the international scene in 2005 with the release of debut album Hold Your Colour which went on to sell over 300,000 copies worldwide. That same year, the band's remix of The Prodigy's classic 'Voodoo People' hit the Top 20 UK singles chart and electronic dance fans soon came to define the group's upfront mix of drum & bass and electro house as the 'Pendulum sound'. Continuing their run of success, follow-up album In Silico debuted at #2 on the UK Albums Chart and sold over 300,000 copies in the UK alone and #9 on the ARIA chart, before third studio album Immersion went straight in at #1 in the UK and #3 in Australia in 2010. Having played some of the world's biggest festivals including Glastonbury, Coachella, Download Festival, T in The Park, V Festival, Bestival and Creamfields, Pendulum have become revered for their extraordinary live performances and defining genre-crossing sound. Following a hiatus from live performances at the end of 2011, Pendulum closed Miami's Ultra Music Festival in 2016 marking an epic return with their first show in five years. The band went on to perform a 14-date festival run across Europe and Asia, including headlining SW4, We Are Electric, Dreambeach, Weekend Festival, Helsinki and Zurich Open Air, as well as Plus Extra Japan, Korea and Singapore. With their remix album The Reworks also due to drop June 29, Pendulum have well and truly returned to the dance world with a bang. As one of the most influential dance acts of recent years, these shows are sure to be incredible. Fans are urged to secure tickets now to avoid disappointment!
