Later this month, Sydney label and collective Motorik will celebrate five years with 5 Years of Motorik: An Australian Electronic Music Experiment.

Born out of warehouse parties throughout its home city, Motorik now operates as a label, weekly radio show, monthly club night, and quarterly music festival—all with a heavy focus on Australian artists.

5 Years of Motorik: An Australian Electronic Music Experiment will be the label's 27th release and includes rising Australian artists alongside the country's dance music veterans. Although its mission statement is techno-focused, the five-year release presents a varied sound, from the gritty techno of Jensen Interceptor to CSMNT61's synth-heavy explorations.

Ahead of the April 21 release date, you can stream Brothers'—the collaborative project of Kirin J Callinan and Motorik co-founders CSMNT61—"Cities Machine," a track recorded with "pedal-laden guitars, antique and barely functioning synthesizers, two 303s in overdrive, and a hotwired speak and spell," in full via the player below.

You can pre-order the release via Beatport.
