Adelaide, Australia’s designated UNESCO City of Music, has a rich history across rock (Cold Chisel, the Angels), hip-hop (Hilltop Hoods) and club culture (Groove Terminator). The independent music community convened in the South Australian capital this year for its annual awards, the first of three planned in the city. It’s in this remote but fertile cultural space that electronic producer Luke Million has been honing his craft. 

This Friday (Aug. 25) sees the release of Luke’s EP Come Together (via etcetc), a funky, bouncy disco-era transporter which, at times, channels Daft Punk, the Beloved and Herbie Hancock. 

Luke tapped L.A.-based ARIA Award-nominated singer Sam Sparro for the previously-released "Back to the Rhythm" and invited Brisbane indie rockers Last Dinosaurs to guest on “Hypnotised,” a slice of retro escapism which Billboard exclusively premieres today. 

"I met the guys on a rooftop bar in Adelaide and after a few G&T's we put plans into motion for a collaboration,” Luke recounts to Billboard. “We bounced a few ideas back and forth and when the track started taking shape I flew (vocalist) Sean Caskey down to record at my studio. The marriage of Sean's hooky indie vocals and my vintage synths resulted in a contagious feel good vibe. We fine-tuned the track after I visited their digs in Brisbane for a jam and some Japanese curry. I had one final stop over in Sydney to record the master of groove, Touch Sensitive, on bass and then track was ready to roll."

Luke embarked on his first ever U.S. tour in October 2016 as support for Hayden James. Since then, he has signed with Circle Talent Agency for North America and Canada bookings, and struck a worldwide deal with L.A. based publisher Young + Vicious. He’ll hit the road in his homeland in September, with plans to tour the U.S. again next year for a headline run.
