Australian Production Design Guild Award for Title Design 2013 – Winner
Breeder was invited back to create the opening titles for Analogue/Digital, so once again, we threw ourselves into the project and didn't hold back. This year, we developed an ambitious aesthetic based upon the idea of double exposure, inspired by Alabaster's amazing track and the conference's program design. We worked around the theme of binary, juxtaposing the urban sprawl and nature, black and white, flight and fall, and unification and disintegration. It was a labour of love and we couldn't be prouder with the end result.

The Wax Wreckaz are a DJ-/production-outfit hailing from Austria, Innsbruck to be exact. A small city surrounded by mountains, green meadows filled with cows in summer and loads of snow and thousands of ski-tourists in winter. The crew consists of Busy Fingaz, Juwee, Fu and Sensay.
Four music lovers that although growing up with different social backgrounds -- ranging from punk rock-loving-skateboard-kid to being a conductor's offspring with classical music education -- finally met in the year 1999 in a graphic design school and the rest is history.
Every time the whole crew works on music together, you can definitely feel that all the influences become one -- classic New York mid 90s rap and turntablism to UK bass music, reggae and beyond! After their latest release longside the rising reggae star Etzia from Sweden -- which gained support by acts like So Shifty, Jugglerz, Bert on Beats, Urban Knights, Rebel Sonix, Mash Up International or the Smalltown DJs and airplay on radio stations from Trinidad Tobago to Russia -- they are back with their first release on Jeffree's.
This time they hooked up with European dancehall-ruler Million Stylez and laced another bass heavy Reggae-Electronica hybrid. Million Stylez laid down an anthem for all the weed lovers worldwide, switching from toasting to singing and back, with his trademark style and voice all over the place. Playing with different genres is natural to the Wax Wreckaz -- whether it's in their DJ-Sets or productions. And so it's obvious that the result has a unique sound to it, including influences from different genres like house, bass, hip-hop and of course dancehall and reggae.
Music video for Kelpe's "Go Visible" by filmmakers Mira Loew and David Altweger in collaboration with contemporary dancer Melissa Spiccia. The video opens with the invitation to "make yourself at home" in a stranger's flat, which the female protagonist accepts by exploring the room through the movements of her body. Unexpected things occur when the space and artifacts within it guide her towards ritualistic acts of unknown purpose.
