Abstract Mutation is the pseudonym of NZ-born Melbourne-based producer James Grant. His music sits somewhere between Acid House and Techno, and incorporates incessant loops, mechanical hi-hats and fuzzy synths. His most recent release on 1080p – the label of Rose Quartz’ Richard MacFarlane – sounds like a dancier Pye Corner Audio exploring themes of surveillance and digital environments. Taking 21st century introspection and media cycles into the outside world.

Chelsea Charlton is one half of the Brisbane electronic duo Brainbeau, but the buck doesn’t stop there. He’s played under a tonne of pseudonyms over the last decade or so: Emotional Hoon, Smorgaslord and Good Samaritron to name just a few. He’s a mysterious figure, who cuts a mean beat with a pair of MPCs. It’s worth noting that more often than not Chelsea will be playing those drum patterns by hand in real-time, no sequencer at all. He’s also an accomplished drummer, in the analog sense. He’s done his time in left-of-centre rock bands.
