The dance floors are not quite back to normal in Australia but the clubs and festivals are open and people are dancing again! With a maximum of 50 on the floor at one time, per dance area, and subject to the four square metre rule, the new social distancing rules are hard to enforce when Spacey gets behind the decks.

His most recent release ‘Around The Corner’ which was featured on Triple J’s prime time dance program ‘The Friday Night Shuffle’, has been rocking the summer season and his new track ‘Dope Is Dope’ takes it up another notch. This is grade A, 100 percent pure party vibes coming through the speakers and it is no surprise that punters are busting some serious party moves to this one.

Dope Is Dope is out now.

Have a great weekend 😀🔴⚫

SUK093 – Nick Coleman Live

22nd January 2021

It is with great pleasure that we present the first in a series of three live electronic music albums from label founder Nick Coleman. The album is the result of two years pre-production, research, development and innovation, at the forefront electronic music technology and performance.

In 2017 Coleman programmed software enabling him to play synthesisers and iOS instruments using the violin, becoming the first violinist in the world to achieve this. During the album recording process, pioneering synthesiser makers Moog and Elektron invited Coleman to beta test their software and iOS synths, as he re-defined the possibilities of electronic music and live performance.

These first eight songs deliver a diverse dynamic of sound and melody and we look forward with great anticipation to witnessing first hand the live show from which this music has become.

“ I’m amazed at the music you have presented here ” – Wolfgang Flür (Kraftwerk 1971-1987)


Our last release for the year ’Skyline’ is the second single from label founder Nick Coleman’s forthcoming live album. The album is the result of two years pre-production, research, development and innovation at the forefront of electronic music technology and live performance.

“As part of my live performance I developed a method of playing electronic sounds using the violin. Skyline was the first song where I was able to perform and record all melodies live. Once I have both hands on the violin it becomes difficult to control almost all aspects of a song. For the time being I am using pedals, body movements and gestures to control sound parameters (for example the filter on the acid arpeggiator). In the not so distant future these parameters will be controlled by brainwaves. When I want the filter to open up, I will think the action and it will happen” – Nick Coleman

The second single ‘Skyline’ is out now with the album to be released the 22nd January, 2021.

SUK090 | Eudaimonia – Album

4th December 2020


If the purpose of life is to be happy, in a world which presents so many challenges, it makes it difficult to achieve happiness. Aristotle did not believe that the purpose of life was to be happy and proposed that it was to achieve eudaimonia, a word which has been translated as fulfilment. The word encourages us to trust that many of life’s worthwhile pursuits will at points be in discord with contentment and yet worth pursuing nevertheless. At the end of the day, perhaps it is these challenges that will define who we are and leave us with greater fulfilment.

So it is with great pleasure we introduce you to Eudaimonia. The 24 year old Melbourne artist sent an album demo to the label and was signed immediately. For Will, a life of music is a life lived in accordance with the principles of eudaimonia: fulfilment, intensity, working tirelessly to create something that is beautiful and intrinsically valuable. His debut album is a mature, emotionally intense body of work, indicative of an artist whose musical journey and music will both challenge and fulfil himself and ultimately the people he connects with.


In a year that has limited the performance opportunities of artists around the world, Mount Mike has been able to externalise his musical expression through a series of location-based DJ streams, broadcast from some of the most beautiful places in British Columbia.

These wonderfully produced DJ streams give us a sense that Canada is beginning to feel like a second home for Mount Mike. His productions, collaborations with like minded BC artists and recent success with a Beatport Top 10 Indie Chart also point to an artist who is feelin’ good about where he is at. So it is with great pleasure that we present his next EP on Suckmusic ‘Queen of Hearts’.

“Written during the peak of COVID lockdown here in Vancouver, I found this time period to be a blessing. Among other reasons it was a great time for me to slow down and connect with my wife and during those Spring months we built a big veggie garden together. The tracks on this release were inspired by sunny days in our backyard planting garlic and listening to Stimming’s new EP. Many of the percussion sounds in these tracks were sampled during the garden’s construction & the melodies drawn from the uncertainty of the time” – Mount Mike

One of the most popular waterfalls in the Great Otways National Park, the Erskine Falls plunges 30 metres into the lush tree-fern gully of the Erskine River. It is a nine-kilometre drive from Lorne. The 7.5-kilometre Erskine River Track leads from the falls to Lorne along the river, passing Straw Falls and Splitter Falls.

“This is Spacey Space to Ground Control. I’m stepping through the door. And I’m floating in a most peculiar way. And the stars look very different today”. Although club life feels like one hundred thousand miles away, Spacey Space has been far from still, and knows very well where his spaceship is going.

The legendary Melbourne DJ’s productions are always prime time party favourites and we anticipate that the next series of his releases will propel his mission into 2021 and beyond. Hopefully, the return of club, festival and music life is just Around The Corner, and we can all board the ship & strap ourselves in for the re-launch! Remix from Melbourne Dance Rock legend T-Rek.

Commence countdown, 10, 9, 8…
