• Three long months after its release and more than a months since its OFFICIAL VIDEO saw the light of day, Joel Adams’ breakout smash ‘Please Don’t Go’ has this week been officially serviced to Australian media. The 19 year old Brisbanite is already achieving millions of streams, racking up thousands upon thousands of social media devotees and is now ready to take over the airwaves.
• Joel’s track isn’t the only one doing the rounds at local media this week, however. Also out and about are the new Redfoo single ‘Lights Out’, ‘7 Years’ – the Lukas Graham track that bulleted into the UK top ten over the weekend, the new Eric Prydz track ‘Breathe’ and Rudimental’s ‘Rumour Mill’. As always, we’ll bring you a more comprehensive wrap of the newbies at media this week on our FACEBOOK page tomorrow.
• There’s still been no word about it from her label EMI, but Tina Arena will release her ‘Reset Live’ DVD this Friday. Featuring performances captured across the country, the tracklisting includes songs from her album ‘Reset’, along with classics such as ‘Soulmate #9’, ‘Burn’, ‘Heaven Help My Heart’, ‘Chains’ and, for the first time in a great number of years, ‘I Need Your Body’.
• Fans of British electronic outfit Leftfield have been left high and dry, with news that the band’s performances at both Calais Estate in the Hunter Valley on Saturday February 20 and at the Yarra Valley Estate on Sunday February 21 have been cancelled “due to circumstances beyond the artist’s control. Enter Frontier Touring, who’ve now confirmed shows at Melbourne’s 170 Russell on Sunday February 21 and Sydney’s Metro Theatre on Monday February 22. Tickets are on sale from 4pm local time tomorrow, February 11.
• Odesza’s show at Sydney’s Metro Theatre is a sell-out. The US duo sold out the gig in a matter of minutes, forcing organisers to immediately add a second one to cope with the demand for tickets. The new second Metro Theatre show (tickets for which are already on sale) will kick their tour off on Thursday April 21.
• And finally for your midweek edition of The Purge, organisers of the Secret Garden Festival, which will take place in a secret location in New South Wales later this month, have revealed the first batch of performers who’ll be entertaining the throngs.
