Emerging from the depths of Tasmania are Allan McConnell and Finn Rees who are known for their electrifying fusion of electronic, disco and jazz and their signature dense synths and driving basslines. Since their recent beginnings, Close Counters have supported the likes of Peking Duk, What So Not, Tall Black Guy, Tkay Maidza and Shaggy. In 2018, Close Counters released their first full-length project called SOULACOASTA, a 12-track whirlwind ride through Soul with no safety brakes. The project developed during Close Counters nine-month Europe trip, in which they dug up a number of rare groove records whilst crate digging. The end result is a dance-floor worthy mixtape of organic house/boogie/disco and more.

We pay our respects to elders past and present and acknowledge traditional peoples' connection to country. We respect the traditions and customs of the Aboriginal people of lutruwita, who remain the custodians of these lands.
