5 Facts / 5 Tracks: KLP


Get ready to feel the heat from down under as Sydney’s own DJ, producer, songwriter, and vocalist, KLP, serves up another taste of southern hemisphere vibes with her latest single, ‘Never Let Me Down’, set to drop on April 26th as a teaser from her upcoming EP, ‘Alter’.

If you’ve been following KLP’s journey, you’d know that she’s no stranger to making waves. Her previous EP single, ‘Symphony’, was a blast of energetic, ’90s-inspired house that got major props from Mixmag, SiriusXM, and Triple J. With platinum records under her belt, ARIA Award nominations, and a legion of Aussie fans, KLP is steadily making her mark worldwide through collaborations with the likes of Skrillex, Loods, and Airwolf, along with releases on labels like MOS, Ultra, and Warner Music.

‘Never Let Me Down’ is a high-speed house anthem packed with pitch-shifted vocals, snappy hi-hats, bold piano stabs, and a beat that hits like a ton of bricks. It’s a throwback to the days when every track was designed to get the party pumping and the rooftops rocking. Consider yourself warned—this one’s gonna raise roofs far and wide.

According to KLP, the track came together during a studio session in Melbourne with her buddy Airwolf Paradise. ‘Never Let Me Down’ was born out of experimentation, playing around with vocals and speeding things up until they found the magic formula. In just a few hours, they had a rough demo that felt just right—it was one of those moments where everything clicked into place.

But ‘Never Let Me Down’ is just a taste of what’s to come on KLP’s EP, ‘Alter’, dropping on Sydney-based imprint Medium Rare Recordings. With three other killer tracks on board, including the frantic dance cuts ‘Vitamin’ and ‘Come Thru’, along with the sultry ‘I Know’, this EP promises to deliver a rollercoaster ride of sound and emotion.

Mark your calendars for April 26th, because when ‘Never Let Me Down’ hits the airwaves, you won’t want to miss it. Check it out below and grab your copy here!

We caught up with KLP to find out more about her backstory and a few tracks that have influenced her to date…

5 Facts

My studio is on the roof of my house. Well… it’s a converted attic, but all the music I make is up there hidden away from the world. 

I have quite a taste for a Margarita (the cocktail). So much so, that it’s become a running joke between myself and some friends that we have formed the Margarita Appreciation Society.

I grew up as a kid with a recording studio at my house. My dad was/is a songwriter/producer, so I would come home from school and hang out in the studio. 

I have a very extensive sunglasses collection! I think there are close to 50+ pairs on the go right now. 

You’ll never find me eating seafood. The taste, the texture, the smell – I am not a fan of any of it. Many people have tried to change my mind but I’m, yet to be swayed.

Tiga – Sunglasses At Night 

When I was still 17, I had a fake ID and would go to this party in the inner west of Sydney called Mad Racket with some friends. It was always so mind blowing seeing everyone dressed up and dancing underneath this incredible gold roof at the venue. I can’t really remember much of the music that would get played – but this song takes me back 

No Doubt – Just A girl 

I remember so vividly the very first time I saw this music video being played on a TV Show called RAGE here in Australia. My mind was blown to see Gwen strutting around singing about girl angst. What a moment. 

Madonna – Nothing Really Matters 

Peak Madonna for me. This song is just everything. The lyrics, the melody. It gives me joy on every listen – plus the video is incredible

Fred Again feat. The Blessed Madonna – Marea  (We’ve Lost Dancing)

I don’t think I’m the only person that feels the same way about this song. It takes me back to covid days. I was walking around a park deep in Sydney lock down (it was horrible) and I pressed play on this and just cried as I walked. 

Peggy Gou – 1+ 1 = 11 

I actually really admire how Peggy has put out 3 incredibly different tracks so far off her soon to be released album. After the success of Na Na Na – I can imagine it would be tempting as an artist to follow it up with similar vibes but she has pushed her musical boundaries since with each release and I’m here for it.
