Lemaitre is a Norwegian indie-electronic duo who formed in the summer of 2010. Together, Ketil & Ulrik create raging disco beats, mixed with soft synthphrases and gripping melodies. When playing live they combine live instruments, not so live instruments and good old live vocals. In their short career, Lemaitre has gained a following from all over the world.The Friendly Sound EP was released at the end of 2010, and the duo are currently working on new material and playing shows wherever the music takes them. Lemaitre is influenced by artists like Justice, Phoenix, Daft Punk, Deadmau5, Noisia, Ratatat and Röyksopp.
Steeped in splashes of yacht rock, hopeful house music and an avid appreciation for the '90s, Sydney quintet Panama make music that is brimming with a quiet, golden nostalgia as it is shimmering and anthemic in its delivery.
Panama first made themselves known with acclaimed debut single 'Magic', which was accompanied by remixes from disco deviants Midnight Magic and Gavin Russom. Their debut 'It's Not Over' EP picks up on that bright promise while expanding it's palette with six tracks that are equally awash with intoxicating rhythm as they are detailed with personal, reflective hues.
Recorded in the city where dreams are made, Panama's 'It's Not Over' EP glows with the airborne optimism of exciting new possibilities and provides a clear statement of intent that the ascension of this Sydney quintet has only just begun.
