LATUKEFU GOES SOLO
No End Theory plays to fame game
Hau Latukefu, the Triple J radio host and one half of Koolism, has released a solo record.
One half of ARIA award-winning hip-
hop outfit Koolism, Triple J radio host
Hau Latukefu always wanted to do a
solo project. It's a goal he's had since
before Koolism began in the '90s.
And it just came to a point where
it felt like the right time to do it,''
It sounds cliche
´d, but it really
means the world to me,'' he said about
the long-awaited release, No End
Being part of Koolism for so many
years, you learn to compromise with
your partner with their songs and the
content of songs. With this it's 100 per
Using Will.I.Am from Black Eyed
Peas as a muse, the album's lead single
Kill.I.Am is partly a reflection of
Latukefu's desire to stay true to
It's just so much based around the
legacy of Will.I.Am, more than the
man himself,'' he said.
He was very much an underground
artist and has transformed into this
massive pop icon.''
The track considers how a meteoric
rise in popularity can force
I thought, how much are you
willing to sell your soul for that taste
of success? And that song is based on
basically that, that dancing with the
Latukefu said the pressure to make
a living and reach the most people with
your music can make you second-
guess creative directions.
Once you actually start doing that,
you lose yourself,'' he said.
You don't want to look back in
20 years time and think, man, I really
messed up there when I was trying to
appease an audience that is partly
fickle anyway. You want to be able to
sleep at night knowing you were true
to yourself and were true to your art.''

ARTIST: VARIOUS/ALBUM: MINISTRY OF SOUND CHILLOUT SESSIONS 2016
Laid-back beats a ready-made summer soundtrack
Gotta love those stripped back tunes
and meditative beats. It may sound like
an ad but the end of year Ministry of
Sound compilation -- of the chilled-out
variety -- is a must. It may be the best
way to soundtrack your holidays and
put you in a relaxed frame of mind.
These easy listening songs sooth
your senses and do not tax your mind
should you have a hangover or just
want to take in the surroundings.
Whether you're coasting along a
highway or contemplating a nap, this
is an intoxicating blend of chilled-out
beats, lounge music and dance songs
you can savour over a cocktail. You
can try not to sing, but once the
entrancing and nagging simplicity of
these radio-friendly hits gets its claws
in you'll find that almost impossible.
These laid-back dance songs run
over two CDs and are immediately
accessible. Highlights include Flume
and Sarah Blasko and a haunting
number by Sufjan Stevens that is
mesmerising. Song names blur into
one another and smooth vocals, vastly
distant beats and a groovy, beach-boys
vibe begins to fill the space.
Just love these chillout''
compilations -- a guilty pleasure.
