“Make music like no one’s listening” is the motto of Aaron Carmack, and appropriately so. His story is a three-part series, divided into factions of past, present, and future. Every element of the past, as Aaron Carmack would explain, has had an effect on who he is today as both a writer/producer and DJ. Being born and raised in San Francisco, attending and dropping out of college in Long Beach, CA, moving to Oahu for three years and living off income from monthly releases on Bandcamp – Carmack’s music is an expression and perpetual reflection of all of it.

Constantly translating personal experience into his craft, Carmack finds inspiration from a range of sources, from his friends and fellow musicians in production cliques, Team Supreme and Soulection, to his travels and numerous sold out tours of five continents over the past two years, sharing stages with folks like Hudson Mohawke, Just Blaze, Cashmere Cat, and Diplo. These influences, combined with a hunger for discovering the newest, most cutting-edge sounds on sites like Soundcloud, are some of the ingredients to the now-Los Angeles-based producer’s distinct creative process.

Like a hinge to the doorway between dance music and hip hop, Carmack’s musical output increasingly occupies a void frontier between the two genres, identified by his contemporaries, fans, and himself purely as “Carmack”. With a devotion to the studio and a grinding work ethic, the inventive producer aims to release a prolific amount of music in coming months, all while performing as often as possible. Stay tuned.


For any young producer, collaborating and crossing paths with revered artists like Timbaland and Billie Eilish is the stuff of dreams, but for 17-year-old Sydney-based Perto, it is very much a reality.

Finding inspiration at the age of 10 after hearing Skrillex’s “Bangarang” on the radio for the first time (“I was like, ‘what the fuck is this?!”), he spent the next few years teaching himself music production — “Everything else I’d done before that, I’d do for a few months and go, ‘cool, I don’t like that anymore.’.. This is the only thing that ever really stuck with me.”; fast-forward to just a few years later and prodigious Perto now shares the same team rosters as his former idol.

Perto’s brand of electronic music shows a maturity beyond his years, translating into official remixes for Flosstradamus (Back Again ft. Waka Flocka Flame) and Valentino Khan(Gold ft. Sean Paul), a collab with Enschway, singles What U Need ft. all damn day (receiving high rotation on triple j’s Unearthed and 4-5 star reviews from programmers Dave Ruby Howe and Declan Byrne), Down 2 Ride ft. Dcmbr, Myself ft. Lil Raven; and most recently a World First premiere on Beats 1 c/o Zane Lowefor single Gone ft. Dani Poppitt via Diplo’s label (Mad Decent) in the US.

Combine this production prowess with a unique visual aesthetic, and a kinetic live presence that has already landed him in some of the world’s biggest clubs, not to mention an upcoming Australian festival tour later this year — young Perto is taking the world by storm.
