Bonobo - The North Borders Album Tour with special guests Oisima & Flamingo
Wednesday, 8th January 2014
Governor Hindmarsh Hotel, 59 Port Road, Hindmarsh

After a completely sold out run in 2011, Bonobo returns to Australia off the back of his fifth and most successful album, The North Borders.

Marking a decade since the release of his earthy electronic masterpiece Dial 'M' for Monkey, Ninja Tune stalwart Simon Green makes his return to Australia including his Opera House debut with his pioneering brand of live-band electronica - mixing the danceable, the downbeat, and new mesmeric re-works.

Notching a staggering 50 million plays online and screen features from the likes of Lost and Gossip Girl to Cartoon Network, Bonobo has firmly belied early 'easy listening' tags through a five-album journey of otherworldly, culture-crossing electronica - sitting in a rare league alongside label mates Amon Tobin and the Cinematic Orchestra. A beacon to a new generation of homemade producers including Mount Kimbie, Floating Points and Lapalux, Bonobo has cemented his genre-weaving sound amongst critics and fans alike with the harp-laden single 'Ketto' and third album Days to Come, voted 2006's 'Album of the Year' by listeners in BBC Radio 1's Worldwide Awards.

Combining experimental warmth and skipping breakbeat samples with the chilled post-party rhythms of Green's DJ beginnings, Bonobo's headphone masterpieces transform on stage into lushly orchestrated suites and larger-than-life, big band jams. Performing with new vocalist Szjerdene - the latest in an elusive line of guests that includes Erykah Badu, Flying Lotus-collaborator Andreya Triana and Bajka - Bonobo will now take centre-stage in what is destined to be another sellout tour.

Ambar New Year's Eve w MARTEN HORGER
Tuesday, 31st December 2013
Ambar Nightclub, 104 Murray St, Perth

2013 - the most monumental year in Ambar's history.

You are invited to join us and your fellow Ambarmy as we LET IT ALL OUT in pure, capital-C-cele-freakin-bration. We're calling it now; best New Year's Eve ever - your special guest? MARTEN H RGER. He'll be slamming into the Home of the Underground as part of his international LGFU Tour (well, OK then - if you say so Marten!).

Powerhouse producer. Skilled DJ. Brains behind Stamina - Europe's Ambar - the longest running breakbeat club on the other side of the world. Half of Smash Hifi (with Leeroy Thornhill, ex-Prodigy). Marten H rger stands out amongst so many dance music peers with one hell of a point-of-difference: he's REAL. And we've been dying to have him back since his killer set in the bowl at Breakfest last year.

His analogue soul/bass music sound born out of the motherland of Electro is simply a perfect way to finish off one year and welcome in a whole new Ambar-era.

Here's to 2014...long live Ambar!

CAMO & KROOKED
*Camo & Krooked are back with their new album "Zeitgeist". Two years on and the follow up to "Cross The Line" truly encapsulates the sound of Camo & Krooked 2.0. Already seeing heavyweight DJ support from across the board, "Zeitgeist" is jam-packed with disco, French house and minimal influences, which are merged together with the signature Camo & Krooked sound to form an awe-inspiring 15-track package. The album also features key collaborations with fellow Hospital star Metrik and Norwegian indie-electronic duo Lem itre 

Austrian duo Reinhard Rietsch and Markus Wagner, otherwise known as Camo & Krooked have quickly become one of the hottest production outfits in Europe. Working together since 2007 they were soon being hailed as "one of the biggest talents in Drum + Bass" by the mighty Grooverider and have gone on to fulfil this accolade since signing to Hospital Records in 2010, winning not one, not two, but three awards in the Drum & Bass Arena Awards 2011 for "Best Producer", "Best Video" and "Best Album".

The Viennese pair have created a whirl of dancefloor anthems since they emerged onto the scene a few years back. On Hospital Records they have have brought us soulful, sultry tracks like massive hit single "Turn Up The Music" alongside raw power of smashers like "Climax" and in autumn 2011, they released their first album on Hospital "Cross The Line"; a fourteen-track rollercoaster ride of emotions, veering between polished vocal-led beauties to filthy tear-out monsters, which firmly establishes Camo & Krooked outside the D+B sphere, as they delve into dubstep, drumstep, electro-house and everything in between. This was teed it up with lead single "All Fall Down (feat. Shaz Sparks)" and "Make The Call (feat. TC)" and later followed up by the release of the title track "Cross The Line (feat. Ayah Marar)".

Autumn 2011 also saw the birth of Camo & Krooked *LIVE* - an amazing, multi-sensory show, featuring the pair perched inside an LED-lit cage using iPads and various MIDI-controllers to rearrange and modify their recent hits and trigger visuals, with album vocalists Ayah Marar and TC featuring, plus Messy MC hosting. Designed and built by Justin from Meno TV, Camo & Krooked *LIVE* was taken around the UK on an Autumn Hospitality tour before the duo took it overseas to their native Austria and the rest of Europe.

2012 has seen the release of their remix album "Between The Lines" which features re-works of "Cross The Line" cuts by a range of producers including Metrik, Mefjus, Subwave, BCee and more. The boys have also had their music featured on some high profile computer games and are busy working on their next album. Hold tight for more to come from this explosive duo!

METRIK
Tom Mundell a.k.a Metrik is a London based DJ / producer who has been blowing the scene to pieces with his euphoric, rave-inspired productions. Already clocking up a sizeable back catalogue of releases on labels such as Viper Recordings, Spearhead and Shogun Audio, he signed exclusively to Hospital Records in October 2012.

Known for impressing crowds across the UK, Europe and across the world with his peaktime dancefloor tunes featuring big hooks and catchy melodies, Metrik has certainly captured the imagination of many fans already and will undoubtedly continue to do so in the coming months and years. With diverse tastes ranging from Eric Prydz to Incubus, Pink Floyd to The Prodigy, Metrik's love of music doesn't stop there. An avid fan of 80s synth music, film music as well as dance music across the board, his influences span house, techno, trance, rock, soul, classical and 80s synth music.

Metrik's first big break was in 2008, when he debuted with Your World (Instrinsic) which became an overnight liquid funk anthem / considered a classic by many (or something similar!) although it wasn't until the next release that he was catapulted into the spotlight when his track "Technicolour" gained Radio One support from Annie Mac and Zane Lowe and was also used as a sound bed for Barack Obama's victory speech on Radio One! Following this came a slew of singles and EPs with notable releases including the sci-fi inspired "Between Worlds EP" (Viper, 2011) and most recently the smash hit "Freefall" (Viper, 2012) as well as remixes of Prydz, John B, Camo & Krooked, Ayah Marar, Rockwell, DJ Fresh, Dirtyphonics and many more.

With his recent signing to Hospital, we are all very excited about the future for Metrik. Stay tuned.

Adam Freeland
Friday, 7th February 2014
Villa Nightclub, 187 Stirling Street, Perth, WA

Ready to come Back to Mine with breakbeat icon, ADAM FREELAND? The Marine Parade legend joins us at Villa, Friday 7 February 2014.

From Burning Man to Watergate to Coachella and beyond, you'll often find Adam Freeland behind the decks, igniting minds and dancefloors alike. With 17 years of extensive global touring history behind him, you might have caught the U.K. born, Cali bred, Brighton living, Grammy-nominated DJ/producer whipping up main-stage audiences at the world's biggest festivals - or reveled in him dropping deep and dirty sounds in the most discerning underground clubs across the globe.

The first climax in the Adam Freeland story was the release of Coastal Breaks in 1996 - he highlighted syncopated funk and groove to the 4/4 thump of dance music back in the day. He showed his diversity across the next five mix albums (including ones for Back to Mine and FabricLive), but it was his debut album in 2003, Now and Then, that thrust Adam Freeland into superstardom. It featured the smash 'We Want Your Soul' and his remix of Sarah Vaughan's 'Fever' (nominated for a Grammy before it was common for dance music to get Grammy's).
Throughout his career, Freeland has always been as much a recording artist as a record spinner. Many of his productions have appeared on Freeland's renowned Marine Parade label. Freeland's essential re-edits, like his infamous chop-up if Nirvana's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit', consistently prove an underground sensation. Meanwhile, Freeland's many, many remixes have gained mainstream acclaim.

Adam Freeland - he wants your soul.

SPACE NYD 2014!
Wednesday, 1st January 2014
The Greenwood, 36 Blue St, North Sydney

Space NYD14 press release

Are you sitting down? Comfortable? Good, because here comes the SPACE NYD 2014 line up. This is one to grip your knees tightly over. Spread the news far and wide because you don't want to be responsible for those who miss out. So without further ado, here it is. Buckle up!

Yousef

Roll up, roll up, because the Circus head honcho makes his grand return to Australia for the 5th Annual New Years Day Party in Sydney,

2013 has been a big year for Yousef -there's the release of the inescapable 'Bigger Than Prince' remixes on his Circus Recordings imprint, his own remixes for labels such as Crosstown Rebels, Get Physical and Carl Cox as well as a new direction vocal release 'I See' through Defected. There is little ground this forward thinking producer hasn't touched.

This year also marked the debut of CIRCUS in the Ibiza summer roster so one can only begin to imagine the goody bag that is Yousef's record case when he lands to blow the roof off The Greenwood Hotel at SPACE NYD 2O14.

Joining Yousef on the heaving bill is Crazy P Soundsystem.

You may remember them by their slightly more risqu moniker Crazy Penis but this five piece have been slaying festival and club crowds like it is no one's business since the early noughties.

Blending together underground disco, dollops of deep electronica and with a sharp ear for pop, the eccentric outfit have recently remixed Australia's own Flight Facilities, as well as shared bills across the globe with the likes of Dixon, Horsemeat Disco, Yusek and Late Nite Tuff Guy this year alone.

Leeds based producers Audiojack are also on the roll call to help bring in the New Year with Space.

The duo's Gruuv label has only continued to go from strength to strength - Germany's Marc Romboy recently released his latest EP 'Trax That Make You Reminisce Vol.1' on the label, as well as a steady stream of releases from the likes of Copy Paste Soul, A1 Bassline plus many more.

And then there is the delicious back catalogue the pair have churned out on labels such as 20:20 Vision, Diynamic and Get Physical that have championed support from everyone to Pete Tong and Annie Nightingale to DJ T and Seth Troxler.

Kehakuma resident Javi Bora adds to the gargantuan line up. Recently nominated for Best Artist of the Year (public vote) and Best Tech House Artist at the Vicious Music Awards, the people have certainly spoken - Javi is one to keep an eye on

Also entering the fray is King of Balearica Jonathan Ulysses. One of the longest running residents of SPACE Ibiza, it seems only fitting that Jonathan joins the line up that brings the Ibiza spirit to Sydney.

Rounding out the line up are Mr Doris and Mo'Funk. If you've ever caught a set by Mr Doris, you'll know that genre is just a word. Blending elements from jazz, latin, dubstep, drum'n'bass, hip-hop, soul, house or afrobeat - if it sounds good, chances are Mr. Doris is giving it a spin. He is also curator of After Dark at We Love Space Ibiza, bringing artists such as DJ Yoda, Krafty Kuts and A-Skillz to the melting pot that is Ibiza clubbing.

Australia's own Mo'Funk has spent an impressive six seasons DJ'ing in Ibiza - not too shabby for a relative unknown who packed up his records and headed to the party isle in 2007. Especially since he found himself playing at Pacha Ibiza up to four nights per week - as they say, the rest is history. Warm up slots for DJ Sneak, Swedish House Mafia, DJ Shadow and Grandmaster Flash? All in a days work for Mo'Funk.

For those who like their BPM that little bit faster and their bass that little bit deeper, fear not. The Bass Drop crew return to SPACE NYD in the Chapel and are proud to present S.P.Y and MC Lowqui.

Signed to seminal Drum 'n' Bass label Hospital, Brazillian born S.P.Y received lavish praise for his debut 'What The Future Holds' which also took out the Best Album award at the 2012 Drum n Bass Arena Awards.

Throw in releases on Metalheadz, Shogun, support from the likes of Andy C - not to mention his devastating remix of James Zabiela's 'Perserverance', it's safe to say S.P.Y is a must see for SPACE NYD.

The local support roster includes the likes of Garry Todd & Matt Cahill plus more to be announced -if the entire line up hasn't tuckered you out by the end of the day, you can keep the vibes strong at the official after party at Goldfish, featuring four guest international DJ's.

Caravan Palace
2014-04-12
The Regency Ballroom, 1300 Van Ness Ave.,
Here we go, let?s take the Caravan for another tour. Same Palace, with a brand new customized flavor. On the shelves and on the road. The surprise breakout band of the last decade, the apostles of Electro Swing and precursors of a laidback yet terribly upbeat trend, is coming up with an evocative second album: Panic! This time, Caravan Palace takes us even farther than their first album (that sold more than 150 000 copies) and continues an amazing adventure almost started by accident. Their strength lies in their common passion for electronic music. Charles, Arnaud and Hughes, the initial trio, dig swing, especially gypsy jazz, and try their hands at the genre?s traditional instruments: guitar, double bass and violin. That?s where this peculiar mixture of classical Django and new trendy electro comes from. And it?s far better than those retro futuristic sounds? because it swings. A few myspace posts later and they have almost doubled in size, enrolling Chapi and the boisterous Colotis in the band. They start touring long before they even think about releasing an album. And everything clicks in 2007, during the Django Reinhardt Festival in Samois. Terrified to be part of the gypsy jazz pantheon, they gather speed and steam and create a real posse (not unlike hip-hop) that follows them everywhere. The word is out, their breakout song, Jolie Coquine, is playing everywhere. The record is released a year later, and it?s an immediate hit. They soon tour France and Europe. The show peaks at the Olympia. The room is packed, people go crazy? listening to swing. This has never happened before. But during the autumn of 2010, they stop and take a month off to start thinking about the new album. How do they come up with new songs? Every member of the band works in his own musical lab before exchanging files at night. The same process starts over the next day. And when the others react instinctively, it?s generally a good sign. The basic rhythm of the first album has mutated into sophisticated beats, less gimmicky, more varied and enriched with sounds flirting with the frontiers of trip-hop. They still love Massive Attack, they still dig the creative minds of Ninja Tune, Isole?s minimal electro vibe or Gorillaz?s grand hip-hop rock bazaar. Only the best of the best. But they also rediscover thirties and forties swing jazz, artists like Fletcher Henderson, or the less mainstream musicians like Charlie Chavers and Mildred Bailey. Six months later, forty-something titles pile up. It?s time to regroup in the studio? where fifteen vintage keyboards are waiting. Tirelessly, the band tries new things, merges styles and makes creative decisions. Fourteen titles are soon emerging. The petulant voice of Colotis is booming again and the old friend Cyrille-Aime is back on two songs. And don?t forget to include Toustou in the Caravan. And now, here comes the list! Clash It opens up on a? fun and raging note! A surprising mix of up tempo swing with a bunch of hacked-up sounds, technologic and flirting with rock?s golden past, back in the day when it was called bop (let?s forget all those labels!). From the get go, this sounds like a huge leap forward from Caravan Palace?s first generation. June 12 th 3049 A ballad with a deliciously slow yet vivid tempo, samples from the grand old age, the vibraphone and the spiraling springs stretching out time. Given the title, we know we?re entering a new futuristic territory. Beatphone A frantic beat that takes its time, an amazing clash with a cascade of breaks to catch one?s breath, barely? before the beat starts again. Cotton heads A pop escapade showing the breadth of Caravan Palace?s new horizons. An ethereal tune, flirting with weightlessness, and branded with a twist of swing, rooted in the tempo and the impulsive keyboards. Dirty side Yes, dirty, the dark side of the Caravan, frantic and frenzied, chemical, destroy? Listen to this borderline sardonic voice coupled with the mocking piano. And the Lionel Hampton vibe from the vibraphone. Enough to upset any musical compass! Dramophone Dear God, the Andrew Sisters are back. With synthetic glitter. This one is coming from Cyril-Aime Daudel, a talent temporarily attached to the Caravan. This is clearly the song that bridges best the two albums. Glory of nelly A London promenade, another sweet escape from the Caravan, with a special song? eh, I beg your pardon? toast, from Sista Colotis. The unlikely and fleeting mix of swing and ragga, with a dominant background of brass and strings. Maniac A hint of Gorillaz, a drawling voice, a few touches of seventies synthesizer ( la Franois de Roubaix), a pinch of Django guitar, almost included by accident. Mix up and listen? Newbop Both new and bop. An acrobatic scat with a solid anchor, multiple breaks, like sturdy inviting steps. And don?t forget the boisterous guitar. Panic! ~AXS

They still love Massive Attack, they still dig the creative minds of Ninja Tune, Isole?s minimal electro vibe or Gorillaz?s grand hip-hop rock bazaar. Only the best of the best. But they also rediscover thirties and forties swing jazz, artists like Fletcher Henderson, or the less mainstream musicians like Charlie Chavers and Mildred Bailey. Six months later, forty-something titles pile up. It?s time to regroup in the studio? where fifteen vintage keyboards are waiting. Tirelessly, the band tries new things, merges styles and makes creative decisions. Fourteen titles are soon emerging. The petulant voice of Colotis is booming again and the old friend Cyrille-Aime is back on two songs. And don?t forget to include Toustou in the Caravan. And now, here comes the list! Clash It opens up on a? fun and raging note! A surprising mix of up tempo swing with a bunch of hacked-up sounds, technologic and flirting with rock?s golden past, back in the day when it was called bop (let?s forget all those labels!). From the get go, this sounds like a huge leap forward from Caravan Palace?s first generation. June 12 th 3049 A ballad with a deliciously slow yet vivid tempo, samples from the grand old age, the vibraphone and the spiraling springs stretching out time. Given the title, we know we?re entering a new futuristic territory. Beatphone A frantic beat that takes its time, an amazing clash with a cascade of breaks to catch one?s breath, barely? before the beat starts again. Cotton heads A pop escapade showing the breadth of Caravan Palace?s new horizons. An ethereal tune, flirting with weightlessness, and branded with a twist of swing, rooted in the tempo and the impulsive keyboards. Dirty side Yes, dirty, the dark side of the Caravan, frantic and frenzied, chemical, destroy? Listen to this borderline sardonic voice coupled with the mocking piano. And the Lionel Hampton vibe from the vibraphone. Enough to upset any musical compass! Dramophone Dear God, the Andrew Sisters are back. With synthetic glitter. This one is coming from Cyril-Aime Daudel, a talent temporarily attached to the Caravan. This is clearly the song that bridges best the two albums. Glory of nelly A London promenade, another sweet escape from the Caravan, with a special song? eh, I beg your pardon? toast, from Sista Colotis. The unlikely and fleeting mix of swing and ragga, with a dominant background of brass and strings. Maniac A hint of Gorillaz, a drawling voice, a few touches of seventies synthesizer ( la Franois de Roubaix), a pinch of Django guitar, almost included by accident. Mix up and listen? Newbop Both new and bop. An acrobatic scat with a solid anchor, multiple breaks, like sturdy inviting steps. And don?t forget the boisterous guitar. Panic! ~AXS
