Mercury (Hobart) - - NEWS - PENNY MCLEOD Arts Ed­i­tor

AUS­TRALIAN mu­sic roy­alty The Pre­sets will per­form with elec­tronic artist Golden Fea­tures at a spe­cial one-off show in Ho­bart in Jan­u­ary.

Syd­ney-based elec­tronic dance mu­sic duo Ju­lian Hamil­ton and Kim Moyes and Golden Fea­tures (aka Syd­ney dance mu­sic pro­ducer Tom Stell) col­lab­o­rated to create the re­cently re­leased four-track EP, Raka.

Tick­ets to their Ho­bart show at Mac2 will be on sale on Thurs­day.

“We al­ways have so much fun play­ing in Ho­bart,” said Hamil­ton, The Pre­sets’ singer­song­writer and key­boardist.

“It’s been a few years and I’m really look­ing for­ward to com­ing back down.”

The Pre­sets’ mu­si­cal ca­reer took off af­ter the re­lease of their 2008 al­bum Apoca­lypso, which fea­tured four hit sin­gles in­clud­ing the clas­sic

My Peo­ple, and won mul­ti­ple ARIA awards in­clud­ing Al­bum of the Year.

Their 2012 al­bum Paci­fica was also nom­i­nated for an ARIA, and their long-awaited 2018 al­bum, HI VIZ, de­buted at No.1 on the iTunes al­bum chart within hours of its re­lease and was nom­i­nated for two ARIA Awards as well as the pres­ti­gious Aus­tralian Mu­sic Prize.

Hamil­ton said the seeds for a col­lab­o­ra­tion with Tom Stell were sewn back in 2014, when Tom remixed The Pre­sets’ song, No Fun.

They will per­form on Jan­u­ary 24 from 6.30pm. Tick­ets at
