Our Tune of the Week comes from Gold Coast legend Paces!
Mikey Perry is never going to be at risk of being called a lazy guy. If not writing tropical party anthems as Paces, he's producing tracks for friends (Tkay Maidza, Madeline Vida, Vanessa Elisha), remixing the likes of SAFIA, Kilter, Parachute Youth, YesYou, Sampology, Danny T, Rattraps and Sietta; supporting beat-maker extraordinaires Lunice, Ryan Hemsworth, Kaytranada, Djemba Djemba and Mr Carmack; or creating some pretty powerful memes with the help of his French bulldog Chilli.
Mixing influences from Jersey Club, Future Beats and Garage, he's crafted a style which is undeniably his own but could sit at home amongst any of his musical idols like Cashmere Cat and Ta-Ku, and gained awareness through his Hottest 100 single with Tkay Maidza Switch Lanes. With the added valour of Perth-based singer Kuĉka, Nothing's Forever is an electronic power ballad catapulted onto the dancefloor by Paces' truly unique production. If you're not yet across the work of Kuĉka, you're in for a treat. Praised by Rolling Stone and flagged as an Artist to Watch in 2015 by triple j Unearthed Music Director Dave Ruby Howe, Kuĉka (pronounced Coo-ch-ka) brings perfect complements to Nothing's Forever.
