June 8, 2016

We've sifted through tons of talented solo musicians, DJs and bands from across the world, and hand-picked five of our favourites to offer you a taste of the incredible tracks being released by Ditto artists right now. So plug in and play the amazing music featured below and discover some of the best new music and most exciting emerging artists out there.
DJ Kenno - Will Grigg's On Fire
Unless you’ve been avoiding social media recently, you may well have already heard the genius football chant ‘Will Grigg’s On Fire’ created by YouTuber, Wigan Athletic fan and all round legend Sean Kennedy. After spreading across the internet like wildfire, the terrace anthem was remixed and released as a charity single under the pseudonym DJ Kenno (in honour of the chant's creator), and has since stormed the iTunes chart! You can hear a snippet of the track in the video above, or head HERE to download the full version.
It’s easy to see why Pitchfolk recently named Alex Lahey’s fantastic song ‘You Don’t Think You Like People Like Me’ as their Best New Track, and the Melbourne-based singer’s knack for writing exceptional songs isn’t showing any signs of letting up either, after the release of her equally infectious ‘Let’s Go Out’. And with a fantastically witty and all-too-relatable new video to boot, Alex Lahey is without a doubt one of Oz’s most exciting up-and-coming artists right now! Hit play on her new single above and hear for yourself!
Lastlings' incredible Unreality EP is enough to give you Chills, so it’s pretty apt that’s the name of the fourth track on the record! Comprising siblings Amy and Josh Dowdle, this extraordinary Australian duo serve up a spine-tingling synth pop sound with an otherworldly edge. You can listen to the band's Unreality EP above, and once you’re hooked, you’ll be delighted to know that their new single ‘You’ drops 8th June.
Australian producer Feki has been a major player in the nation’s electronic scene for some time now, releasing a string of stunning releases, each building on mesmerising layers to create a sound that stops listeners in their tracks. Feki's mixes always go down well in the Ditto office, and his latest song Thankful is no exception. Have a listen and get lost in this gifted artist’s signature sound.
Talented singer-songwriter Beth Macari’s soulful voice is definitely a force to be reckoned with, and her latest single Voodoo offers the perfect blend of funk and soul. The UK starlet’s latest release showcases her unmistakable sound, and it’s no surprise her slick new music video has been racking up more and more views. After breaking into the charts with her debut single Heartstrings and making waves across the industry, fans can expect more show-stopping tracks from Beth throughout the year.
