Hoxton-based label, Perfect Havoc welcomes back highly-revered Australian artist Ivan Gough on September 25th with his latest creation ‘No Time To Talk’. Teaming up with hotly tipped newcomers and fellow countrymen, Play Play Play, ‘No Time To Talk’ is a strikingly emotive, piano-driven house track with an end of summer feel. More than just your standard four to the floor club track, it blends big room energy with fetching deep house vibes that – very much like summer – will leave the listener not wanting it to end. With a synergy of sizzling rhythm and uplifting melodies, complemented by a powerful vocal topline, it serves as a worthy return to Perfect Havoc for Ivan following an impressive feature earlier on in the year.

‘No Time To Talk’ (licensed to Perfect Havoc for the UK, Ireland and Germany in partnership with the Australia-based, Neon Records) is yet another exhibition of Ivan Gough’s much-appreciated ability. With Australia being an often-understated originator of compelling electronic music, Gough’s stripes are firmly cemented by his ever-growing catalogue of hits. The first of these was mammoth track ‘In My Mind’ with Feenixpawl and Perth vocalist, Georgi Kay, which went on to win the Australian ARIA and APRA Award for Best Dance Release, become Grammy-nominated and rack up over 40 million views on YouTube. Most recently he’s linked up with another Aussie newcomer, Chloe Wilson for their collaborative effort, ‘200 Years‘ which peaked at #5 on the ARIA Club Charts and crashed the top 5 ARIA Dance Singles earlier this year, amassing over 1 million global streams along the way. All in all, he’s achieved over 1 billion streams across his works and 11 No.1 dance tracks on the ARIA club chart.
Although new kids on the block, Play Play Play have an interesting backstory that makes them worthy candidates for collaborating with Ivan Gough. Formerly a part of The Potbelleez, their breakout single ‘Don’t Hold Back’ peaked at No. 5 on the ARIA Singles Chart and has been ARIA certified 3× Platinum. Their new project, however, is a testament to their years involved in dance communities and their passion and taste for quality dance music. Having toured the world and dance hotspots for a decade, Dave Goode and Ilan Kidron are far from ill experienced in transforming dance floors. Honing their talents in at popular and iconic Sydney venue the Bondi Royal with their summer house sets, the duo has taken it upon themselves to reach the next level of dance music, creating their original sonic mark through production.
‘No Time To Talk’ marks yet another standout release for Perfect Havoc. Its breaking talent roster includes Joel Corry, Tobtok, Karen Harding, PS1, The Aston Shuffle, Mahalo, Eat More Cake and Parx. The label has hit half a billion global streams, has three UK Top 10 singles, and it currently holds the record for the longest-running No.1 single in 2020 in the UK with Joel Corry & MNEK ‘Head & Heart’. The label A&R’s have an acute ear for both underground and mainstream hits, licensing to labels including Atlantic Records, Big Beat, Columbia Records, RCA, Ministry of Sound, Polydor, Toolroom, Thrive and Astralwerks.
