At the early age of 22 years old, James Blake released the visionary and era defining EP CMYK, while his debut, self titled album a year later, earned him unanimous praise and worldwide success. His first two albums revealed his innovative musical identity and the constants of his sound; crisp production, mastery of bass frequencies, the combination of organic and digital elements, his natural talent on the piano and his hypnotic vocals. These attributes were amply demonstrated on second album Overgrown, deservedly winning him the Mercury Music Prize which led to a Grammy Nomination for Best New Artist.

From outsider cult heroes to beloved counter- culture royalty, Cheech & Chong have blazed a smokey trail across four decades becoming one of the most loved and identifiable comedic duos of our time. Defining an era with their hilariously irreverent, no-holds-barred comedy, they released their all-time classic movie Up In Smoke in 1978, it became the most successful comedy movie of its time grossing in excess of 100 million dollars, cementing the loveable duo’s position as totems of alternative culture.
As his massive year draws to a close, Chet Faker (A.K.A. Melbournian native Nicholas Murphy) is pleased to announce details of his biggest Australian tour to date and the final tour of his award-winning breakthrough debut LP Built On Glass.
The homecoming national tour (featuring Chet as a three-piece band) will take in five capital cities this February. Chet will be ably supported by Melbourne wonder-producer Roland Tings and rising cosmic-funk revivalists GL.
