Winter is well and truly on the way, so to counter the cold we've rounded up a couple of dudes to bathe us in gloriously warm house music: the totally superb 6th Borough Project! We'll be taking over two floors of the Burdekin for the occasion, huddling in with a whole heap of our favourite Sydney DJs.
The 6th Borough Project is Craig Smith and Graeme Clarke. Their music is deep, soulful and funky but always energetic. With their roots in jazz, boogie and funk, and their tips in disco, deep house and warm tech, resisting the impulse to dance is impossible.
Craig has been on the DJ circuit for more than 20 years, including 10 years of hosting 'Audio Deluxe' at The Honeycomb in Edinburgh which saw big wigs like Masters At Work, Ashley Beedle and DJ Jazzy Jeff spinning tunes and partying.
As The Revenge, Graeme has been one of the fastest rising names in deep house and disco re-edits over the past few years and continues to accelerate. Productions for his own labels Instruments Of Rapture, Five20East and his DJ edits for L.E.S.S. Productions have had across-the-board support from scene heavyweights including Danny Krivit, Prins Thomas and Todd Terje.
As the 6th Borough Project the pair have released some stunning records on Delusions of Grandeur, Instruments Of Rapture and Jiscomusic to widespread acclaim. They released their debut album, One Night In The Borough, in May 2011 which mesmerised audiences with warm slow-mo deep house and smokey soulful disco cuts. In 2012 they also dropped a 10" and a superb mix CD on the consistently sensational Kolour LTD imprint, as well as another sterling EP on DoG, while their second full length release is just around the corner. Their technical brilliance coupled with a deeply instinctive understanding of what grooves and feels good make them one of the most exciting acts in dance music right now.
In support across the two rooms will be *deep breath* Marc Jarvin & Jungle Snake, Magda Bytnerowicz, Ken Cloud, Ben Fester and Preacha as well as your adoring hosts, Kali and Andy Webb. Huge! We kick off at 10pm and ride on through until summer comes back. This will be a biggy!
With the team from club night Troupe and clothing line Yoghurt Warrior behind the night, they have assembled a crack squad of artists that will come together to provide an explosive night of quality beats that will take you through until dawn
Check out the line up packed with talent and ready to set the dancefloor alight
The Line up:
Tom Demac Tom Demac is someone very much shaping the modern scene
His live sets have been witnessed everywhere from Fabric to Sankeys, Warehouse Project to the Boiler Room and all over the globe
The said live set frequently changes, each show bringing a constant and intense wall of sound, blending a fine balance of vintage drums, ripping analogue synth lines and contemporary grooves into something wholly new and exciting
With releases on some of the scenes leading labels such as Hypercolour, the press have caught up with what those who have been following this artist have known for a long time and with much of the year ahead lined up with more releases and gigs taking him across Europe, including a summer playing at Sankeys in Ibiza, it will be another year on the rise for Tom Demac
Locked Groove This young Belgian producer is causing serious murmurs and whispers across the board
Despite having only been producing for a short time, his hyper-realised concepts of heavy techno and deep house demonstrate a startling balance and natural ingenuity well beyond his years - at a level not seen quite for some time
Locked Groove's strength lies in his uncanny ability to shift between the industrial jams of Berghain and the lighter, deeper tones of spritely Chicago house with real guile and finesse
Scuba picked up on Locked Groove's vision and ability, and first signed him to Hotflush for his debut release, and prominently featured 'Drowning' in his installment of the DJ Kicks series
