London’s MssingNo, labelmate of beat hermit Clams Casino, makes elegant tracks out of bass, crisp percussion and treated R&B acapellas. (Bonus points for what must be a Pokémon reference in his name.)
Melbourne’s DEER has an impressive CV of his own: along with a co-sign from tastemaking New York label Mishka, his collab track ‘MoneyWeed’ with fellow Australian rising star UV Boi is currently staging a coup on DJ mixes around the world.
Find DEER here bringing his club-levelling sensibility to MssingNo’s R. Kelly–powered breakout hit ‘XE2’. While you’re at it, check out his live dates below.
