Australian DJ/Producer JTP Puts His Own Spin On The “Melbourne Sound”
Jacob “JTP” Perks has been blessed with the opportunity to live across majority of the major capitals along the east coast of Australia. This has given him plenty of time to explore and listen to new sounds and genres.
One sound in particular that has always stuck with him is Australia’s own Melbourne Bounce & Minimal. Listening for the better part of 10 years, Jacob has been able to use this knowledge and experience to turn that into his own twist on the Melbourne Sound.

HOME COUNTIES release new video for “Village Spirit”
“The video is a loose and modern portrayal of the historic event the song is written about (the communal murder of a nobleman in nineteenth-century France). We wanted it to be a bit Hot Fuzz, with the comically over-stereotyped village characters played by the band members. The video was shot in Haddenham, Buckinghamshire, which is a very quaint best kept village sort of place – which gives the video a postcard portrayal of idyllic village life. Haddenham is also the inspiration for the EP artwork, which is based on a gordy painting in the village hall, so it felt fitting to set the video there. We had a lot of fun making this video and are chuffed with how it turned out – thanks to the amazing work of Taylor and Harry. It was a pleasure working with these guys.”
