Last Night’s Soulection Show in Sydney Was Pretty F$%*ing Epic!

by

Though it was only a few years ago that the distribution of music was controlled by only the biggest and most well-known labels, the inspiring hustle of the individuals behind independent record label, Soulection, has quickly become a notable platform and global community of artists, creatives and tastemakers alike. Keeping quality music as their consistent staple ingredient, the LA-based collective now boasts a roster of international artists and producers, a streetwear label, a radio show on Apple‘s Beats 1 station and countless sold out tours and appearances around the globe.
This past weekend, they continued on that journey and brought ‘The Sound of Tomorrow’ to Sydney. Check out our review now.

TOKiMONSTA Steals Our Attention As She Embarks on AUS/NZ Tour

by

“I try to give very little focus on me being a female producer—it’s what I am, but that fact is irrelevant to my craft. That being said, I am very strongly opposed to people treating female musicians (or female whatever) unfairly because of their gender, but let’s keep the playing ground equal.” – TOKiMONSTA

TOKiMONSTA is kicking off her Australian/NZ tour this week and The 5 to 9 Life was lucky enough to grab some time to chop it up with the LA DJ/producer. Check out what she had to say.
