At the tail end of 2012, Australia's George Maple released a free download of 'Uphill' which recently got released via Justus Recordings (home to Karma Kid and Bondax). The song has a hypnotic beat and a mellow production which rests wonderfully beneath Maple's glassy vocal and smooth melody. Most recently she's toured the US and Europe with mellow party starters Flight Facilities and is currently spending studio time with label-mates, upcoming producers and Fader favourites Bondax. Maple is a part of a growing scene of vibrant, melodic electronic music and her single 'Uphill' is the perfect anthem for that movement. She's penned tracks for 2012 favourites Flume who even made the ShufSounds top 100 tracks of 2012. Watch out for George Maple and her peers as they could be building the soundtrack to dance-floors for 2013.
