From beyond the majestic shadow of Matthew McConaughey’s signature hum emerges Australia’s favourite mashup duo, Yacht Club DJs, with brand new mixtape Oddity Number 5 in tow. It’s a free download brimming with Yacht Club’s fearless repertoire; a one-hour banger fest that’ll have you fanging for the weekend, stockpiling the party mixers and wondering what ever did happen to 90’s buzz-babe Mya (not all that much).
Yacht Club DJs’ fifth mixtape instalment lands just a few weeks from their Oddity Number 5 Tour – an East Coast run of oddball proportions, which sees them joined by triple j Unearthed Artist of the Year Remi at Melbourne’s Prince Bandroom on Friday, April 18 and Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory on Thursday, April 24. A string of local supports are also announced, including Melbourne duo GODWOLF and Byron natives Pilots – full details in tour dates below.
Amongst its many noteworthy moments, Oddity Number 5 promises dance floor wars between Outkast and John Cougar Mellencamp; Daft Punk and Fleetwood Mac; not forgetting a three-way mash spanning Captain Planet, Danny Brown and Arcade Fire (not joking). The liner notes include the likes of remix renegades Violent Soho, Band Of Horses, Radiohead and The Flaming Lips… and yeh sure, Justin Timberlake is in there too. Twice.
Play it loud. Play it proud.
Yacht Club DJs’ Oddity Number 5 mixtape is available to download via SoundCloud. Tickets to the Oddity Number Five East Coast Tour are on sale now; ticketing details below.
