Winter is well and truly here, but the dance floor heat shows no signs of abating. Melbourne continues to turn it on this weekend- live, hedonistic, all night, all day…we’ve got it all from the bureau d’interested.
Good Lovin’ w/ Max Vegas, Umut & Service Desk @ Night Cat
This week Good Lovin’ welcomes one of the men behind one of Melbourne’s longest running vinyl emporiums, Max Vegas, along with local selectors Umut and Service Desk. Quality tunes ahoy!
¿Club D’érange? 1 • 7 • 16 w/ Gibson and Greig, Millú, Chico G @ Mercat
Quickly becoming recognised as one of the most outrageous parties in Melbourne, ¿Club D’érange? guarantees the most desirable hedonism and debauchery this Friday night. Expect tops off, all night with some of Melbourne’s favourite children.
The Story Of Acid House w/ DJ Pierre @ New Guernica
One of dance music’s greatest names returns to Melbourne to once more wow us with a few hours of mind bending acid house. Support from an equally red hot local support squad that includes Louis McCoy, Shedbug, Rudolf C + Bunker keeping the gas up high in the kitchen.
Mania w/ Rudolf C v Shedbug, Donald & DJ Miles, Blacksn and Zobs Palace @ Lounge
The local crews are bringing the heat this weekend in the maniadome. Salt Mines label heads Rudolf C and Shedbug are closing things out with a 3+ hours of bum2bum goodness. Warehouse rats and SRS NRG dons Donald & DJ Miles exchange inner city basements for the Lounge booth. Blacksn makes his Mania debut alongside resident freaks Zobs Palace.
Go for the neon sign, stay for the music.
Lost Weekend w/ Albrecht La’Brooy LIVE & Udmo @ Boney
The Analogue Attic Recordings family arrives back at Lost Weekend to once again showcase the gentler side of Aussie electronic music, this time welcoming a new member with promising young local producer UDMO joining the ranks thanks to his brilliant new Open Water EP.
With Udmo warming the engines, label heads Albrecht La’Brooy will treat us to an extended improvised live set showcasing a range of exclusive AAR material, most of which will never be heard again!
LW favourites Ricci and Myles Mac to step things up a gear later on.
Out Of Wind w/ Millú, Danny & Simon, River Yarra @ Lounge
Melbourne’s newest party, Out Of Wind, warmly invites a trifecta of musical prowess to its inaugural soirée- Danny Hotep & Simon Barry, Millú and River Yarra.
It’s a party borne out of a mutual desire to turn a progressive local dance culture into something more tangible. The co-hosts will be donating their DJ pay to the ASRC, and Lounge will be contributing 10% of the bar take to the same organisation. Even more reason to get messy.
Label of Love: Temporal Cast w Cale Sexton, Kangaroo Skull, Chiara Kickdrum & Jamal Amir @ Shadow Electric
Melbourne label Temporal Cast joins the Label of Love showcase series at Shadow Electric, which will feature a mix of old favourites and exciting newcomers. Cale Sexton is joined by Kangaroo Skull, Chiara Kickdrum and Jamal Amir on one of the hottest local live lineups we’ve seen in a while. Not to be missed.
