Alright, for April we have reached out to a young artist from Perth, please welcome our next featured artist of the month ‘Boneflip’.
Philippe (aka Boneflip) had spoken to use earlier in the week about always being around music and instruments from such a young age, possibly even 3. Since then he has dabbled with piano, trombone and bass guitar, but these day’s he has found his obsession with deep, driving basslines and hard-hitting drums. Although he told us he still apprecieted and try’s to take influence from every blend of music under the sun.
The song that really grabbed us and pushed us to make contact, was a new release called ‘QUANTUM‘
We were not the only one’s taking note, with Triple J’s Dave Ruby Howe showing his support. Philippe was recently lucky enough to play in the spider (if you not seen this thing, you gotta check it out) at ARCADIA, but has also played support to a range of acts like Leftfield, Joyryde, Stanton Warriors and Benson.
Now, let’s jump into this month’s mixtape, which is followed by a few quick-fire questions we threw at him earlier in the week.

FIRSTLY, WHAT HAVE YOU WENT FOR & HOW HAVE YOU CHOSEN TO USE YOUR 30 MINS IN THIS MIX:
This mix has a bunch of tunes I’ve been digging recently, and a few originals and edits. I like a lot of what I hear, but I’ll always be drawn to UK style house and garage, as well as some bass house bombs!
WHAT SWUNG YOU INTO ELECTRONIC MUSIC?
I grew up listening to loads of different sounds and playing a few instruments. I was mostly into metal growing up, and made a transition into drum and bass and heavy electro a few years ago. I definitely found a home listening to breaks, which kind of fed into the sound I’m pushing at the moment. I was mostly making hip hop when I started producing though.
HOW DO YOU BEST DESCRIBE YOUR SOUND?
Deep basslines and hard-hitting drums. Swing those hats!
WHATS THE GAME PLAN FOR THE NEW 2017?
I’ve been to exploring the world of collaboration recently and learning tonnes of new things! Trying to release at a faster rate than last year for starters, and smash a bunch of shows.
THE WHOLE AUSSIE SCENE IS GROWING BY THE MIN, SO MANY GEMS OUT THERE NOW. SO, IF YOU COULD PICK ANY OTHER AUSSIE TO COLAB WITH IN 17, WHO WOULD IT BE?
Aw man that’s pretty tough! I’ve been really digging a guy called Hood Rich recently, he’s been killing the game!
& WHAT ABOUT ONE HOT TIP, ONE ACT YOU THINK IS ABOUT TO POP & WILL BE THE NEXT BIG THING?
Oof, I’ve got a couple of mates called Oriental Cravings and another champ Axen that are definitely going far. Check out those boys!
LASTLY, HOPE THIS IS NOT TO PERSONAL, BUT IF YOU HAD TO PICK ONE, AVO’S OR MANGOES FOR REST OF YOUR LIFE WHERE WOULD YOUR ALLEGIANCE LAY?
Going to have to go with mangoes I think, as long as they’re good ones!
