Cut Copy announce ‘Cut Copy presents: Oceans Apart’ compilation

Cut Copy announce their new compilation ‘Cut Copy presents: Oceans Apart, A Glimpse of Melbourne’s Dance Culture,’ which will be out November 11 via their own label imprint, Cutters Records. In addition, two vinyl EPs of compilation highlights will be released on November 18th. Listen to NO ZU’s Raw Vis Vision below via Soundcloud, which is lifted from the album.

Cut Copy has truly become an international band in the past decade, having released four albums & performed over 1,000 global headline tour dates & prestigious international festivals in the process. The global Melbourne ambassadors have now just announced ‘Cut Copy presents: Oceans Apart,’ a 19-track continuous DJ-mixed snapshot of new & exclusive music from their hometown’s underground dance music scene & club culture mixed by the band themselves.

As Cut Copy frontman Dan Whitford elaborates, we’ve always found deep inspiration in the music of our home city. It’s where Cut Copy started, as just one band in a potent community of unique and likeminded artists. But it also continues to inspire and surprise us, with great new music constantly bubbling to the surface.”

The motivation behind the compilation came from a late night conversation in a Melbourne club with a friend of mine. As we excitedly shouted over the noise of the dance floor, one of us said ‘the dance scene in Melbourne has gotten so interesting over the past few years- someone should really document this!’, adding “We looked at each other knowingly, and from that moment, the idea for Oceans Apart was born.“
