Suckmusic


With a fascination for music, dance, and rhythm from a young age, it took Mike a few years of stealing his mother’s crockery and wooden spoons and using them to make 4 to the floor dance floor tuna before he persuaded his parents to buy him a drum kit. He played his drum kit day and night, exploring all manner of eastern time signatures and Afro-beat grooves, absorbing sounds from wherever his dial up internet would allow. He began to compose little songets, and riffage, which he recorded in his bedroom using pre-historic software from the local library. Thus began his interest in computer music and audio production. His ears began to pine for the thumping kick drums he overheard on his sister’s Ministry of Sound Annual CD, and upon delving into what exactly made this enticing noise, he discovered Ableton Live. Now based in Melbourne, Mount Mike has been hard at work for a number of years honing his skills as a producer, and is ready to reveal what he has been working on.


On Friday the 2nd of March Suckmusic will be back at Revolver for our first event of 2018. This next instalment features a couple of fresh faces on the lineup, most notably Mount Mike who’s debut EP – Headlights – we’ll be celebrating.

As per usual with our launch party events we are extending exclusive pre-release access to ‘Headlights’ for those who click attending. To receive a download link and be added to our free guest list (first 10 people only) PM us your name and email address.

Thank you for your continued support of the label and our nights at Revolver. Catch you on the dance floor.


Just An Animal & Turn Into Something were originally to be released as singles on EP3 and EP4 respectively. The decision to pair the two together was made as the band had realised a theme in both lyric and sound that could be presented as a thorough two part reflection of the human experience. Williams’ lyrical inspiration draws from Renaissance art to the domestic life & animal instinct and is poetic and modest in its delivery. The bands emphatic pursuit of a unique sonic palette feels near complete with the addition of acoustic guitar to their sound as they continue to develop a rich organic and electronic blend of acoustic and synthesised instruments.
