American rapper Lupe Fiasco has described Australians as the most sophisticated music fans in the world.

Too long have our dance floors lay dormant. Too long has ‘mash’ been of the potato variety. Australia’s favourite mash up maestros Yacht Club DJs will settle the score this April with their Oddity Number 5 Tour - an East Coast run of oddball proportions and the namesake of their fifth infamous mixtape.

It follows the duo’s stint through the UK and US last year; personally invited by Grammy Award winners Mumford & Sons to join them on their Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers, alongside Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, HAIM, The Walkmen and The Vaccines.

After winning international hearts, and no doubt a few brewskies along the way, Yacht Club DJs busied themselves back home, working on their very first original EP. Recorded at Red Door Studio with Woody Annison (Dune Rats, Children Collide and Hunting Grounds), the EP is set for release later this year.

Whether in ‘da club, on ‘da bus, or at your great grand mamma’s retirement home, Yacht Club DJs sure know how to bring the party, with their mixtape mantle already hosting ‘Kleptomania’, ‘Demons of Gymnastics’, ‘They Mostly Come At Night’ and ‘Find Me A Macchiato Pronto’. Their latest mixtape instalment Oddity Number 5 will hit the interwebs next month, a free download brimming with Yacht Club’s fearless repertoire spanning 60s blues, 90s pop, Disney soundtracks, death metal and everything in between.

A bearded Irishman who sings with an acoustic guitar, you might be forgiven for assuming that James Vincent McMorrow is just another folk singer, sporting flannel and flogging tunes from his ukulele. It can be difficult to spot that unique snowflake caught in the avalanche of folk music on our airwaves. But McMorrow is proving to be an artist who deserves to stand out from the pack.

Fresh from performing alongside the likes of Chet Faker, Neil Finn and the Flight Facilities at the Falls Festival 2014, McMorrow performed to a sell-out crowd at The Metro on Thursday night. He still bears the appearance of a musician who is surprised by his success.

Musicfeeds: One of the most in-demand DJs planet earth has to offer, Avicii, has announced that he will be bringing his internationally acclaimed True Tour show Down Under in 2014. Continuing his mission to make every other 23-year-old feel ridiculously underaccomplished, the record-breaking Swedish producer will be rocking up to our shores in January next year.

Australian audiences are aware of the scale of an Avicii live performance, having experienced it first-hand at both Future Music and Good Life festivals past. However, with his name appearing alone in lights this time around, we can be sure this will be a show of epic proportions.

Rising to fame off the back of well-represented track Levels, Avicii has gone on to prove he is much more than a one-hit wonder. His latest cut Hey Brother is at radio now and has proven to be a worthy successor. The track is the latest in a string of high-charting hits boosted from his coveted debut album True.

For 3 glorious hours, Avicii will be unleashing his full live set up in and around your earholes, offering 3D mapping, LED and amazing projections to ensure all your other senses are in a state of bliss as well.

General public tickets go on sale from 12 noon local time next Friday, 8th November.
