Last month, triple j Unearthed dropped an incredibly hot sample pack, featuring musical parts generously donated by Gang of Youths, Lime Cordiale, Alison Wonderland, Genesis Owusu, San Cisco, Vallis Alps and Touch Sensitive.

Then it was over to the triple j Unearthed music community, who took those musical parts and morphed them into their own original masterpieces.

Producers and music makers from all over the country submitted tracks that spanned every genre under the sun. And from hundreds of entries, five legends have been chosen as triple j Unearthed’s DIY Supergroup finalists.

Read what triple j Unearthed Music Director Dave Ruby Howe had to say about them below!

triple j Unearthed’s 2021 DIY Supergroup finalists…

Apricot Ink – ‘Do You See’ (Canberra, ACT)
Canberra trio Apricot Ink carpe’d that diem and made the most of their chance to collaborate on a track with Gang Of Youths and other local legends. Drawing on the mood and refrain of the Gang Of Youths’ original vocals, Apricot Ink expanded on the lyric, going deeper and making it in their own in this stunning entry.

Dave Winnel – ‘Beg My Pardon’ (Sydney, NSW)
After tantalising triple j listeners with recent tech-house bangers like ‘Boomerang’ and ‘Jungle Juice’, this Sydney producer took full advantage of the talent on offer, with everything but the drums in this track coming from the DIY Supergroup sample pack. He even turned a Lime Cordiale cackle into that buzzing synthesizer you hear in the drop.

Moss – ‘SABRE TEETH’ (Brisbane, QLD)
For Brisbane producer Moss, the DIY Supergroup challenge was seemingly all about matching the intensity of Canberra firebrand Genesis Owusu who supplied his rhymes to the sample pack. Moss was similarly inspired by the defiant message in the lyrics, relating that to his own Indigenous heritage, which comes through powerfully with that didgeridoo breakdown.

Sad face. – ‘open my eyes’ (Brisbane, QLD)
Brisbane beatmaker Sad face. takes the DIY aesthetic to another level – with a no-frills paper bag mask adorning his head and obscuring his identity. As well as using parts from Alison Wonderland and Vallis Alps in his entry, Sad face. recontextualises the vocals from Gang Of Youths making Dave Le’aupepe sound like a sombre robot yearning for human connection.

Stellie – ‘Heart Sick’ (Adelaide, SA)
Already firmly on the triple j radar after a stint as the Unearthed feature artist in 2020, Stellie showed why she’s highly rated with this dark and moody pop turn that features a cello assist from Alison Wonderland. Adding her own original lyrics and vocals to the track, it makes for a dramatic but romantic moment from the rising Adelaide solo artist.

Tune into triple j Breakfast with Bryce & Ebony next week as we reveal the winner, who will join 2020 winner ROYBOY in the halls of DIY Supergroup fame.
