It’s been a decade since this duo –Julian Hamilton & Kim Moyes–first set festival fields alight with breakthrough anthems like “My People”, “Talk Like That” and “This Boys In Love”. The pair had been making waves in Sydney’s clubs since forming in 2003 and signing to the influential Modular Records,but it was their 2008 Oz chart topper, Apocalypso, that first introduced them to wider audiences. That album was certified triple platinum and wonthemsix ARIA Awardsin their homeland. By contrast, 2012’s critically acclaimed Pacificawas comparatively introspective but epic gigs around the world –from Glastonbury Festival and Coachella to Splendour In The Grass –forged the duo’s reputation as Australian electronic music trailblazers. Continuing in this tradition, The Presets’fourth album HI VIZ–which lands May 18 delivers a ‘back to basics’ set, deliberately curated as a proxy for The Presets’ live experience.

"We wanted to make something that was literally meant to get you outof your head”, explains Julian Hamilton. “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.”

“It’s taken us ages to make this album because we just kept writing and recording more and more songs”, reflects Kim Moyes. “At one point we had about 50 contenders and, like us, they were all over the map mood wise. Eventually we decided -fuck it -let’s just pick the most ‘up for it’ songs. Those tracks are always the most fun for us to play live anyway so we thought ‘why not have a whole album of them?’”

HI VIZ has already been teased with two songs -the urgent “Do What You Want” dropped late last year and featured in triple j’s Hottest 100 songs of 2017 and the sweeping “14U+14ME”, whichis among the tastemaker station’s most played songs of 2018. Most of the album has been mixed by John Hanes who created the classic mix of “Uptown Funk” as well as working more recently with the likes of Sia, Bruno Mars and Major Lazer. Apocalypsocollaborator Scott Horscroft also mixed several HI VIZ tracks while Flume engineer Eric J mixed “Beethoven”–the pair’s sly nod to their Conservatorium years.

Both Julian and Kim individually produce other artists outside their Presets collaborations,so it’s not surprising that they, once again,are credited as Producers for their own album. It’s also apt that some of the artists with whom they’ve worked should make HI VIZcameos. For example, “Are You Here?” features indierockers the DMA’s, whose latest release was co-produced by Kim. Similarly Alison Wonderland –for whom The Presets recently created a widely played remix -guested on the beaty “Are You Out Of Your Mind?” while Jake Shears from Scissor Sisters added vocals to the dark’n’steamy “Tools Down”.

Joining The Presets across all their Australian tour dates, Roland Tings will bring his propulsive cuts and dynamic live set to the fore. Fresh off the heels of releasing his new, stripped back house track “One Hundred” feat. HIGH HØØPS, the Melbourne producer will be kicking things off each evening with hisblistering live set.
