SOURCE MUSIC

Battles

Source Music looks after the rights to the music for Warp Records Artists from the UK. Such artists include Battles who have just released their album 'La Di Da Di'. The Twelve track album includes songs such as 'The Yabba' and 'Dot Com'.

Sticking with the group's trademark blend of organic repetition through playful melodies and seriously flexible drumming, they excavate a sound built around infinite loops of experimental instrumentation that sounds quite unlike anything else out there today. 'La Di Da Di' is an album that will satisfy fans of old while giving newcomers a perfect entrance to the unique musical world they inhabit.

Not one for making music videos for his piano music, Justin Hunter decided that it was time to reflect his upbringing in the Blue Mountains with a video for 'Mountain Pass' off his album 'Eunopia'. 

Hunter is a highly talented songwriter and creative artist. With plenty of collaborations with dance producers, R&B singers and pop outfits, he still manages to create his timeless pieces of instrumental texture.

'Eunopia' is his fourth album of piano music, featuring soft piano and delicate vocals. It is perfect for licensing in film and TV and for playing in massage clinics, yoga studios and for quiet reflection. The video was shot and edited over 6 weeks in the beautiful Blue Mountains.
