Jack Prest has been rocking parties and festivals on the Australian music scene for the last 10 years.

This new project Flatwound sees Jack stepping up his production to the next level, producing world class tracks to get dancefloors moving and minds expanding.

C.J.Soulman as been doing the disco funk thing since year dot. With a production career that extends back to the first ever Vision Streetwear commercials and and live bass credits that include the likes of Jermaine Jackson and Macia Hines, this is a force to be reckoned with.
