Decoded Magazine Presents – The Journey

To kick off the 2022 mix series, we invited Melbourne rising stars, The Journey. The Melbourne based duo have knelt to electronic devotees on one knee, gracing stages at the iconic Rainbow Serpent Festival, Pitch Music & Arts to Subsonic and Strawberry Fields Festival, while having cemented solid tours throughout Europe.

Delivering ammunition for both club and afterparty, with labels like Stil Vor Talent, Ritual & Einmusika, The Journey have also collaborated with multiple records with artists around Australia. Recent remix roles for singer-songwriter Running Touch on ‘My Hands’ acquired a well-deserved spot on Ministry of Sound’s Annual 2019, amid remixing for ‘Treaty’ by Yothu Yindi attracting prodigious recognition resulting in The Journey being nominated for Music Victoria & The Age’s Electronic Artist of The Year.

At the end of 2019, the boys released their huge single Chasing featuring Australian producer Stace Cadet which has celebrated massive chart success both internationally and nationally. They followed up with two singles on Oliver Koletzki’s imprint “Stil Vor Talent” and Nil’s Hoffman’s “Poesie Musik” respectively which gained an abundance of international support.Jacob & Tom ended the year with their follow up single to Chasing called “Secrets” which sat at #1 on the Australian Aria Dance Charts for 3 weeks & then a follow-up track on Stil Vor Talent titled “Drainpipe”, which has been a go-to for a ton of high profile international artists.

The duo has had an extremely busy release schedule, celebrating success across multiple well-known labels. Their exciting collaboration Rusted Tongue on their own imprint UGENIUS was highly acclaimed and a follow up split EP with Stil Vor Talent with a stunning remix from Bebetta achieved a lot of success throughout the world. The road ahead derives inspiration from the last year’s vibrant success – musically on some of the world’ most celebrated record labels, amidst stacking shows across the Australian summer and straight to Europe where the pair’s third tour of the region is imminent.

When we are asked to do a podcast it’s a great way to express ourselves musically over a short amount of time. Generally, we do like to play longer sets (4 hours +) and take our audience on a ‘journey’, pardon the pun, and this mix is a bit of a taste of what you might expect when you come and see us live.”

The mix includes Tristan Case’s remix of our new single ‘Hollow’ which features the really beautiful voice of Alverie and also includes a few releases on our imprint UGenius Music. At the moment there are some really amazing producers in Australia writing really fresh sounding music that really stands out, so we made sure there are a few of our favourites in here as well.” – The Journey
