Biography

Pendulum formed in their home-town of Perth (Western Australia) in 2002, when producers Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen teamed up with acclaimed local DJ Paul ‘Elhornet’ Harding. While their individual formative roots ranged from producing drum & bass, breakbeat and hardcore, to playing in metal and punk bands, their comparable talents proved an unstoppable force when they managed to single-handedly conquer the world of drum & bass in their first 12 months together.

“We want our music to be an escape. While technology continues to constantly advance production techniques and (arguably) sound quality, something has been lost in the process – that original sense of self-escape, the idea of leaving yourself open to experience something you don’t necessarily find in every-day life. That was the energy we picked up on and liked about electronic music when we first got into it. It felt like the same energy found with bands like Led Zeppelin and even The Beatles, and still occasionally today with bands like Tool, The Mars Volta, Queens Of The Stone Age and others.

To us, it made perfect sense to combine the best of both worlds, but it had to be done in a way that didn’t make it sound obvious. In the last 10 years you’ve had all these bands that tried to cross the bridge by recruiting a turntablist / using a synthesizer on their new single, or electronic artists who just threw an obvious guitar sample into a tune…but eventually it just came across as a gimmick or a bit cheesy. We thought we’d try and do it properly, because to us it still hasn’t been done right and theres a lot of room for exploration.

If you turn on the radio today you’ll hear 20 tracks in a row describing someone’s every-day life, or songs with a one-line catchphrase chorus about shaking your ass in the club – the production is usually great but when you look deeper, there’s nothing behind it…it doesn’t offer you anything past its face value. We want to hear something different and exciting, but the material we want to hear isn’t getting made. Thats why we spend nearly every waking moment trying to create music that takes you out of this universe – for ourselves and anyone else who wants to listen.”

ILLY – The Two Degrees Regional Tour

Oct 20 - 2017

Platinum-selling Australian hip hop artist Illy has announced The Two Degrees Regional Tour, his most extensive tour of Australia to date, kicking off this August and finishing up in late November. This tour is the first time Illy will bring his ARIA #1 album Two Degrees to regional Australia, which includes stops in Port Hedland, Launceston, Toowoomba, Cairns, Warnambool, Newcastle, Mildura and Albury (just to name a few). It follows on from his largest ever capital city tour, featuring sold-out shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane earlier this year.
 
Illy has a good history of regional touring, hitting the road with Groovin’ The Moo Festival twice, along with a previous regional headline tour in 2014. He’s developed a strong love of regional Australia and is pleased and excited to be getting back out to these towns and performing again after such a long absence.
 
Illy says he is “Really psyched to get back on the road for such a huge run. It’s been a couple years since last time, and this will be the biggest I’ve ever done. Let get loose.”
 
His album Two Degrees includes current single Oh My featuring Tonight Alive’s lead singer Jenna McDougall, the triple platinum ARIA Award-nominated and APRA Award-winning single Papercuts with Vera Blue, the double platinum Catch 22, a collaboration with UK powerhouse Anne-Marie and live favourite You Say When featuring Marko Penn. Two Degrees is available now.
 
 
Illy will be bringing this massive tour to Discovery Darwin on Friday October 20th! This will be a sell out event, so get your tickets NOW!
