---- The Presets ----
The Presets have been recognised worldwide for their dynamic live performances, playing hundreds of shows domestically and internationally, including key slots at renowned international music festivals such as Glastonbury, Coachella, SXSW, Exit, Melt and Splendour In The Grass.
The Presets took shape in 2003 when Julian Hamilton and Kim Moyes first met at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. They were quickly recognised for their ability to fuse elements of dance music with an energy more akin to rock’n’roll. After signing with Modular Recordings, the band released two EPs and an album Beams (2005).
In 2008 The Presets released the chart-topping Apocalypso, selling in excess of Triple Platinum sales in Australia and featuring four hit singles, including the classic ‘My People’. Setting new standards for dance music in Australia, The Presets went on to win 5 ARIA awards (and 2 ARIA Artisan Awards) including Album of the Year, as well as the J Award and FBI SMAC Award for Album of The Year. Kim and Julian also shared the coveted Songwriter of The Year Award at the 2009 APRA Awards.
Pacifica was released in 2012, featuring Rolling Stone Magazine’s Song Of The Year, ‘Ghosts’. Pacifica was also nominated for an ARIA, shortlisted for the AMP Award, the J Award, and was Album of the Year in the Herald Sun and Daily Telegraph, and Electronic Album of the Year in the Sydney Morning Herald.
As well as making new music together over recent years, the pair also collaborated individually with other artists over recent years. Julian co-wrote Flume’s hit “Say It” and contributed to tracks with Flight Facilities, Steve Angelo and Meek Mill. Kim produced the new album for the DMA’s and has created remixes for artists including The Drones and TheJezabels while also starting an underground techno label called Here To Hell.
---- HI VIZ 2018 tour ----
HI VIZ, is a long overdue reminder of why The Presets are the Aussie figureheads of electronic music. Julian Hamilton, one half of The Presets alongside Kim Moyes, says the new album is " about trying to capture that energy you get on a great night out with your friends when you get to leave everything else behind you for a while. We essentially tried to create the soundtrack to a party that we would want to go nuts at."
The duo’s Kim Moyes and Julian Hamilton have locked in some huge theatre shows across Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Canberra, Wollongong, Sydney, Brisbane, Mackay and the Gold Coast for this June, where they’ll be supported by Melbourne producer Roland Tings.
Speaking about HI VIZ, Hamilton says, “We wanted to make something that was literally meant to get you out of your head.
“All the songs on HI VIZ are outward looking so in that respect it’s much more like our earlier stuff. It’s about trying to capture that energy you get on a great night out with your friends when you get to leave everything else behind you for a while. We essentially tried to create the soundtrack to a party that we would want to go nuts at.”
The Presets have previously described their fourth studio album as "an acid-soaked circle jerk of rave nuggets, cyber croons and pub techno" made with the help of some trusty friends. Namely, DMA'S, whose new album was co-produced by Kim Moyes and return the favour by featuring on 'Are You Here?'; Alison Wonderland (who was recently given the Presets remix treatment) gatecrashes 'Are You Out Of Your Mind?' and Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters sings on the "dark n' steamy" 'Tools Down'.
