These two crews with have individual posse stages, and will also be joined by a third stage represented by dub PA System Unknown, who will have C:1, Rob Spinfx, Dj Undies and Tomo reppin dub, jungle, reggae and dancehall to compliment the heaving and pumping beats from the other two stages.

Saturday 31 May – Phuture @ New Guernica

Main Menu

image

If there’s one gig you should be going to this weekend, here it is. if there’s one group who could be said to have pioneered Chicago acid house, Phuture is it, and they are coming to New Guernica this Saturday.

DJ Pierre, Spanky and Herb J (the first two appearing on Saturday) started recording in 1985. Those rolling, squelchy sounds you know as the key bass emulation leader for so many old house songs were created by a Roland TB-303, which was Phuture’s tool of choice.

Through their focus on Chicago clubs in their prime, Phuture extended their sound to rave and acid house culture worldwide with hypnotic,funky and driving 10+ minute minute tracks like ‘Acid Tracks’ (1987) and ‘We Are Phuture’ (1988).

Here is a chance to catch some true legends of the house game, get with the program. A great bargain too at 25-30 bucks a ticket.

This event is being fronted by Funf Touring and The Selectors, and supporting acts are Sleep D, Cleverhands, Safari, Harold & Conor, 6am at the Garage and Jesse Young

Tickets

9pm-5am. New Guernica, 322 Little Collins Street, Melbourne CBD. $25/30.

Main Menu

Here’s another lowkey Saturday night option in Melbourne.

Western Australia’s Hugo Gerani is set for a visit to our city. His beats are nested in atmospheric and downtempo housey soundscapes, evocative of sun-kissed Balearic beaches and ridiculously accessorised cocktails.

Gerani will be supported by the very excellent locals Andras Fox and Oscar Key Sung. If you know these guys, you’ll pretty much get the gist of the event and know that this night will be a quality one to be a part of.

Misha aka d0gb0y of Friendships will be down to round out the beats with some tasty visuals.

8pm-1am. Ferdydurke, Levels 1 and 2, 239 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne CBD. Free!

Saturday 8 March – Shaolin Shakedown @ Happy Palace

Main Menu

image

The main reason I wrote this one up was because of the promo on the Facebook page, it was hilarious.

“Forged from solid rock”, Buck Rogers seems to be lending a page from the Wu-Tang Clan’s mythos in that he is “a legend (-) born” in the “original gravel pit” in Auckland, and that his DJ skills were honed in a Shaolin school for DJing.

Other Melbourne/Wu-Tang DJs featured are Citizen.com and Lickweed. Wu-tang forever, protect ya neck, kid. Watch out, apparently people in Happy Palace are apparently “rowdy monks with all manner of weaponry at the ready”.

There’s also $7 spicy chicken ribs and $5 basic spirits available there all week from 7-9pm, as well as $20 jug n rubs (massage and jug of beer).

Starts 6pm. Happy Palace, 87 Bourke Street, Melbourne CBD. Free!

Saturday 1 March – Hopskotch Records presents Anodyne Industries + Dabs + Dusty Fungus

Main Menu

image

Note: This event has already begun, so if you’re interested, you might want to start heading down there right now! Time is of the essence.

Australian glitch/idm/drum and bass label Hopskotch Records have been nursing and honing this event for quite some time now.

They have brought over Anodyne Industries, a leader in a new wave of drum and bass that focuses on futuristic and advanced mid-range and bass frequencies that are slippery and psychedelic to the ear.

Anodyne Industries comes from what is known as The Bay Area for music in San Francisco, an area that has previously bred such ground-breaking artists as The Glitch Mob and Eprom. They are fast becoming recognised as pioneers and leaders of their field since beginning production a relatively short time ago in 2009.

The rest of the line-up is well-crafted, and reflects more of this new wave of drum and bass to hit our shores.

Other representatives include a rare treat in Italy’s Dabs, Brisbane’s Dusty Fungus – fast becoming a force internationally for his sound, and Melbourne’s own Safire – whose work with Dispatch Recordings has led him to recognition by some of the world’s elite drum and bass fans.

Other locals on this line-up also are formidable and well-recognised within Melbourne’s electronic scene too. These artists are Schwarr (Adapted Records), Lickweed (Twisted Audio), Muska vs Maxi Basshead, Sludge Junkies, Big Fucking Robots, Smilk, Ripple, and Rute.

But you know what? This is on RIGHT NOW, so if you like what you hear here, you best shut down your computer and straight on over to Brunswick. Quick, run, RUN!

Ends 1:30am. Rubix Warehouse, 36 Phoenix Street, Brunswick. $30.
