Modcast #162: Movement

Movement's Sean, Jessie and Lewis round off a crazy release week with a cruisy mixtape of the greatest soul vocalists and chill productions. Shedding some light on their signature style of brooding night music, it reveals much about these illusive personalities (we drill them with a Q&A below) while doubling as a golden companion piece to their latest and greatest tune 'Us'. Soak it up!

The guys are warming up for their Sydney single launch on Saturday 26th October with interstate dates to follow. Watch this space...

What is the concept of this mix and how did it come together?

The mixtape was made so you can you drive to it, swim to it, drink to it and basically so it can narrate your summer. We wanted something we could just let play while we were enjoying our summer. It helped that we put the mixtape together in an apartment 12 levels up over looking the city.

Noting that there's not a lot of current music on the playlist. Are there any contemporary artists that you trip on?

James Blake, SBTRKT, Earl Sweatshirt, Tyler the Creator, Aphex Twin, Frank Ocean, The Weeknd, The xx

I had a chuckle over the FIFA sample. Are you hardcore gamers?

Not really, we just used FIFA 02 to solve disagreements and relax in the earlier days of MOVEMENT.

There's much emphasis on Movement being nocturnal music. What happens in the daylight?

We do things that don't involve too much motivation, sort of grind in circles.

You're stock piling potential tracks for the next release. How are you finding inspiration?

We have been writing for the past year and a half so we have a quite a few tracks that are ready to go. Everything will come to light soon - just waiting for the right time. We find inspiration from so many different places - anything from other artists to the beach to playing live.

Two singles in, what are you most looking forward to from this music caper?

We are really excited to just have more music out there...we are looking forward to traveling with our music and meeting more interesting people and artists.
