The Presets took shape in 2003 when Julian Hamilton and Kim Moyes first met at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. They were quickly recognised for their ability to fuse elements of dance music with an energy more akin to rock’n’roll. After signing with Modular Recordings, the band released two EPs and an album Beams (2005).
In 2008 The Presets released the chart topping Apocalypso, selling in excess of Triple Platinum sales in Australia. Pacifica was released in 2012, featuring Rolling Stone Magazine’s Song Of The Year, ‘Ghosts’.
The pair also collaborated individually with other artists over recent years. Julian co-wrote Flume’s hit “Say It” and contributed to tracks with Flight Facilities, Steve Angelo and Meek Mill. Kim produced the new album for the DMA’s and has created remixes for artists including The Drones and The Jezabels while also starting an underground techno label called Here To Hell.
The Presets have been recognised worldwide for their dynamic live performances, playing hundreds of shows domestically and internationally.
The group’s long awaited fourth album ‘Hi-Viz’ is out now, with distinctive cover art from long-time collaborator Jonathan Zawada who has also worked with Flume over recent years.
