Leading-Edge Sydney Label Sidechains Drop Third Compilation Album 'Sidechains Club Vol.3'
4 Mar 2020
Today pioneering Sydney label Sidechains, is thrilled to present the third compilation instalment of underground electronica, Sidechains Club Vol.3, featuring local “powerhouse rapper” Boy $cout Gatsby and his title track ‘Suburban Spartans’.
With each artist and song carefully hand-picked by Sidechains founder Denzel Sterling, he expresses his excitement about the latest volume and what makes it unique – “Every artist I've selected for the 3rd compilation is exceptionally talented and come from different music circles all across Australia. I'm a strong believer in the importance of Australian labels spotlighting budding producers to allow them the chance to put their best foot forward and help their projects/crews/brands flourish and grow. That's my main goal with the Sidechains compilation series. I'm really excited to finally share this next Sidechains compilation with everyone!”
One of those “budding producers” is emerging talent ‘Boy $cout Gatsby’ and his punchy, hip-hop infused track ‘Suburban Spartans’ as the lead song on the album which after one spin, you’ll understand why – “Boy $cout Gatsby is an incredibly versatile, powerhouse of a rapper from Wollongong who has a knack for writing catchy hooks and bars filled with honesty and a little bit of cheek. One listen through his Spotify and you'll see just how flexible he is, jumping from highly energetic tracks that get you going to hazy 2am joints that really hit you.”
Boy $cout Gatsby shares the meaning behind his lyrics, “’Suburban Spartans’ is a track looking at how me and my boys have each other’s back against the odds, comparable to Sparta vs Persia, overwhelming numbers cannot defeat a small dedicated team.”
Since humble beginnings as an irregular queer-friendly Sydney club night, Sidechains has become a name synonymous with breaking cutting-edge electronic music, adding a record label, weekly radio show, and a thumping club compilation series to growing offering. Sterling opens up about the initial drive behind the birth of the label, “I've always wanted to curate my own compilations. I grew up listening to all sorts of compilations and discovered so many of my favourite artists and labels through that process (shout out Bang Gang 12 inches). The Sidechains compilations allow me push focus towards up and coming Australian producers/vocalists that I believe are the next wave of musicians really moving our music and culture forward into exciting new areas.”
With a collective goal to bring the newest and best underground electronic music from the internet to life, etcetc Music and Sidechains are thrilled to join forces on the upcoming Sidechains Club Vol.3 compilation album.
As a nominee for FBi SMAC’s ‘Best Dance Event’ 2016, Sidechains are also Sydney renowned for their parties and club nights, having held forty-six glitchy, synth-heavy and trippy shindigs hosting the likes of SOPHIE, Mallrat, Enschway, Fatima al Qadiri, Josh Pan, Medasin, Alexander Lewis, Masayoshi limori and DJ Sega, just to name a few.
