Thank you Burberry. You not only bought our favourite post-punk live band, White Lies, to the ears and eyes of our friends in Singapore, you also recorded the action and put it up on the compelling Sound + Rhythm Tumblr for the rest of the world to enjoy.
We love the lush, sample heavy sound of Bonobo, aka Simon Green (yes, we prefer Bonobo too), a pioneering UK producer renowned for his downbeat electronica. From his debut release, Terrapin, on the Tru Thoughts compilation When Shapes Join Together, right through to his most recent Ninja Tunes album, The North Borders, Bonobo’s lushly orchestrated productions are invariably complex and deeply melodic.
Australian artist James Jirat Patradoon was the star of our recently held Lost At E Minor party in Sydney, his fluoro work setting the walls of the venue alight. He creates character driven visual art, born of fictional worlds of borrowed imagery that act as distorted mirrors to our reality, mashed-up and remixed to create […]
On December 12, ASOS will be launching the world’s first global online house parties – in Australia, North America and the UK – starring leading electronic music artists, DJs and producers such as Jessie Ware, IS TROPICAL, Mount Kimbie and Eliphino.
On December 6th football fans came together for the first major moment of the 2014 World Cup: the final draw. While mainstream media outlets were providing the same generic live reaction coverage, Budweiser is showing a more deeper, more immersive look at fan culture and their reactions around the globe.
Fashion photographer Per Zennstrom uses a glitch generator to digitally distort and “destroy” his images in an experimental and colorful beauty project with hair designed by Carina Finnström and make-up by Fredrik Stambro. When the photographer came across a Glitch Generator, created by Georg Fisher, he immediately knew that he had to try it out on […]
It’s a beautiful summer’s day in Sydney. Ah, we can practically feel it right now. A phone booth is mysteriously placed on iconic Bondi Beach. Confused? So were bystanders. See what happens when they were invited to answer a ringing phone. Remarkable stories, best decisions and the first steps towards life-changing events. Share your own […]
We’ve got a nice video of Channel V’s Danny Clayton giving the unreleased PlayStation 4 console a whirl. With Sony’s new PS4 set to be launched on the 29th of November here in Australia, Danny warms us up for the newest in gaming with his (very enthusiastic) experience of the console. Gaming’s reaching new levels, and Danny is quickly in full on excitement mode, particularly digging the graphics and artistic visuals – animations everywhere! We can’t wait.
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the first in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. We follow them through a typical day in their life, capturing magical moments of artistic expression and getting an inside perspective on what inspires and motivates them.

These cityscape drawings by Stefan Bleekrode are deceptively realistic images of well-known existing and imaginary cities the world over. Although drawn in a seemingly realistic manner further enhanced by the use of light and shade whenever possible, most drawings also present themselves as highly accurate architectural and perspective studies. All drawings he made so far were done entirely from memory and executed using ink and watercolour.
In the dramatized situations of Ville Andersson’s photographs, there’s a strong mystical and psychological force. This force is also present in the paintings, which are in dialogue with a former civilization; with both literature, film and fine art. In the artist’s style you can see influences from many different time periods. Andersson sees clear links […]
Jo Fallon is an UK illustrator and designer currently based in Japan. She draws custom pet portraits for the owners of awesome dogs, where the personality of their furry baby is allowed to take centre stage against a bold, bright background.
We’re fans of Underworld, the aptly named electronic music act that have supplied some awesome 1am dance music over the years. So we were excited to hear that they had teamed up with the brains behind the Volkswagen Golf GTI to develop ‘software and Underworld exclusive music compositions that synchronise motion, technology and music’.
Sarah Flora’s paintings focus on capturing and constructing memories that she is terrified of losing and creating the life that she desperately wants to have. They are an obsessive reminder of small moments that would be otherwise forgotten and therefore lost.
If you’re lucky enough to be in Sydney on Tuesday November 19 (and yes, we do mean LUCKY), then be sure to get along to the opening of born in darkness before dawn, 2013, a projection artwork by Nicole Foreshew in which larger-than-life images of an Aboriginal woman draped in cloth will be projected onto the 20-metre façade of the Australian Museum as part of City Art, The City of Sydney’s public art program.
