Rachel By The Stream
Rachel By The Stream is a live electronic duo created through the combined forces of UK-born vocalist, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Rachel Clutterbuck and Melbourne MC, beatmaker and producer Mattriks.
Effortlessly transitioning between deep skank, cutting-edge pop and synth drenched hypnotic dance, RBTS are masters at delivering evocative songcraft in a bass heavy postcode.
The dream team formed at 2012’s eclipse festival in Far North Queensland, releasing debut EP ‘Smooth Like Butter’ (No.2 Amrap Charts) the following year and garnering widespread support across radio (ABC, BBC, 3RRR, PBS) and blogosphere. The pair released debut album ‘Situation Positive’ at the end of 2016; “deep messages, balanced with a lot of pure, unadulterated, pop fun” Beat Mag, and have toured the UK twice, joining 90’s masters of fusion Transglobal Underground on tour and playing at world-renowned Glastonbury Festival.
Counting progressive social commentator Charles Eisenstein and consciousness-raising activist Rak Razam as fans, RBTS are the thinking person’s pop music: evoking universal stories through poetic lyricism, ecstatic melodies and a reliable bottom end.
