Hi everyone,

I've been hard at it again over the past few months, enhancing the experience and making the site run smoother and faster.  In that process, i've added a few new things. :)

Events and Venues

When adding an event, you now have the option of selecting from a list of existing venues, or adding a new one.  When you add a new one, you need to provide the location (address, suburb/city, state) and it will become available to everyone else on the community, which means adding events becomes so much quicker!  Once you've added a venue, anyone can then search for other events at that venue!

Clubs

If you are a venue owner or event promoter, you can now create a discussion space for your event / venue by going to https://ozclubbers.com.au/clubs/. This can be a public, open, closed, or private discussion space, and you have complete control over the discussions.  When you create a Club, you'll be asked for the location of your venue or event, and people can then browse for your club on a map.

Reactions

Once upon a time, there were likes.  Now, we have Reactions!  Reactions are similar to the ones you see on Facebook.  There's the normal Like, then there's a Thanks, Haha, and a few others.  Look for the little heart icon and thats where you can react to posts!

Viewing the Forums

There's now the option to change the way you view the forums.  At the top right of the forums list, you can select one of three different methods for viewing the forums.

Completing your profile

When you log in, you will be asked to complete your profile if it isn't completed.  The required fields will be asked first, and then any optional questions after (such as your preferred music genre).

Update to the interface

I've tweaked the interface a little now to make it load quicker and seem a bit easier on the eye.  There's a few more tweaks to come yet too which will make it even quicker.

Quoting to Facebook

You can now highlight pieces of text and a little "Share Quote" option appears, which allows you to share that specific quote to Facebook

 

Thats about it for now.  Thanks again for being part of our community, and if you like what we are doing, please share it around!

Cheers

Adam Madd

      Australian psytrance duo Pysborg & Gigabit are proud to announce the release of their latest new track Ectenic Forces OUT NOW on  BNU Records and also available on Beatport, Apple Music and all good music retailers.
       

       
      Best described as a unique hybrid of melodic psytrance and big beat breaks combined this track delivers something truly different. The song title Ectenic Forces refers to supposed physical forces emitted by the human mind. The track is inspired by the human condition and the psychic force that connects us all.
       
      Their previous track Synchronicity released via Demon Tea Records celebrated the theory that we are all connected with our interactions not just by coincidence but rather as part of a bigger picture. A picture that we are all a part of painted with the spirit of a dancer or etched in dancefloor dust.
       
      About

      Hardwell is the seasoned-veteran DJ/producer that’s behind Spinnin’s mammoth new tune. Boasting multiple international new music Friday playlists already, How You Love Me is a pop infused single that features the hugely respected artists, Conor Maynard and Snoop Dogg.
       
      As one of the leading pioneers in the world of electronic music, Hardwell runs his award-winning label as well as directing award-winning documentaries. All whilst tending to a cool 9 million on Facebook (and rising). Hardwell’s impressive plethora of work includes collaborations with Craig David, Jason Derulo and Austine Mahone. Having filled numerous headline slots at the biggest world-wide events, Hardwell has graced the stages of Ultra Music Festival, Coachella, Tomorrowland, Lollapalooza among others. Recently expanding his extensive reach with unique projects such as a live orchestra show at this year’s Amsterdam Dance Event. In addition, his Indian United We Are and Guestlist4good charity shows saw remarkable attendance. A hundred thousand people joined in order to aid children educationally within the Magic Bus program.
       
      Pop sensation Conor Maynard is an artist who also boasts many strings to his bow. As the man behind vast Spotify streams, Conor’s incessantly up beat personality and determination has seen him gain the role of Charlie Price in the Tony award winning musical Kinky Boots, chart in over 25 countries, and reach an incredible 118m streams with another Spinnin release, Whenever. 
       
      Continuously pushing boundaries, Hardwell has delivered a smooth slice of tropical pop. Kicking off with the iconic voice of Snoop Dogg, Conor Maynard follows with a heavy dose of pop flavour with the subtle addition of shy Conor styled sexiness. How You Love Me is a sunny exploration from three monster’s in the music industry, flexing their musical muscles to provide us with a champagne filled celebration with the swagger of smug love.
       
      Hardwell – How You Love Me (feat. Snoop Dogg & Conor Maynard) is out now.

      In a few weeks at Elrow, Australia will be graced once again with the appearance of one of the world’s most astute and creative DJs; as well as being a long-serving servant of the industry, John Digweed. This year, his and studio partner, Nick Muir’s label, Bedrock celebrated its twentieth year of releases, John was also voted at number 35 in this week’s DJ Magazine Top 100 Alternative DJs (non-EDM), powered by Beatport’s findings over the past few years. He is one of dance music’s more celebrated and influential DJs and this week he found the time for a quick Q and A with Ozclubbers’ reporters Nathan Jones and Jamie Drew.
       
      John, thanks for answering our questions and speaking with Nathan and Jamie from ozclubbers.com.au
        
      N: Of course, Bedrock – yours and your studio comrade Nick Muir’s label – reached its own milestone this year and a big birthday, turning 20 years of releases. For anyone considering starting their own record label in 2018 or onwards – is there any advice you could give, or pointers for releasing your own tracks today?
      JD: It’s not an easy world in the music industry - so always prepare yourself for setbacks and disappointments and take every element of success as a stepping stone to build your label’s profile, always try and release music you love and are passionate about as you will find you will work harder to make them succeed.

       
       
      J: Pete Tong is celebrating 25 years of Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1 having begun in 1993 of which you have featured on it many times. With your radio show "Transitions" reaching 13 years next year do you hope you will reach the 25-year milestone as well?
      JD: I try and take each year as it comes as I am incredibly happy with the success of the show, but I am not looking at certain years to celebrate to be honest.
       

       
      J: Speaking of 25-year celebrations, the relationship between you and Sasha is enduring and actually began in 1993. It is one of the longest DJing relationships in the scene with a loyal fan base that is spread over generations. The fresh progressive sounds you both present to the punters keeps pushing the boundaries and is testament to your dedication and longevity in the scene. Is there any chance of another "Northern Exposure" release or any studio collaboration for that matter between you both?
      JD: Never say never, but we are both so busy with our solo projects - I can’t see anything happening anytime soon.
       
       
       
      N: Thinking about the future of electronic music, nightclubs and festivals, do you think that in years to come, we can look forward to plenty of events and a healthy following of dance music and clubbing? If so, where in the world are the important places to influence electronic music?
      JD: The beauty of electronic music is that it constantly changes and evolves with new sounds, DJs and artists coming through all the time, along with new promoters providing their vision on how they would like to create a party. I think with the Internet there is no main important place of influence, it’s down to the organisers and the crowd to be in sync and create those memorable nights that you never forget.

       
       
      J: Going back to the era when you played tunes on vinyl at clubs, I am sure you do not miss carting crates of records around - but do you miss the hands on feel and sound that vinyl produced when playing at big club nights? I know that Technics turntables were the industry standard at the time and am wondering (to decide a personal DJ disagreement!) if you spent much time playing on Vestax turntables and which turntable you preferred. Vestax or Technics? 
      JD: Always Technics 
       
       
       
      N: With another holiday season forthcoming, you’ll be playing New Year’s Eve at Output in Brooklyn (where one of your Live In… series was recorded), is there a plan for another multi-CD recording from there (or anywhere else)?
      JD: There are no plans in the pipeline for the next “Live in” Album as I never ever plan them it’s always been chosen after I have played.
       
      John, thanks again for answering our questions - we hope you enjoy your time in Australia and wish you a happy new year.

      DJ SPEN:
      US house icon DJ Spen first laid his hand on the decks at the age of thirteen while growing up in his native city of Baltimore - he hasn’t looked back since.
      Also known as Sean Spencer, the talented DJ and producer began his illustrious career in the mid-’80s as a hip-hop radio DJ making beats under the moniker Numarx, responsible for writing and recording 'Girl You Know It’s True,' later covered and made into a smash hit by Milli Vanilli. The years that followed saw DJ Spen move away from hip-hop and towards the classic Chicago house sound that would define his productions for years to come, after joining forces with famed production collective The Basement Boys. Working under the name Jasper Street Co., DJ Spen released his first 12″ through Basement Boys Records in 1995, the energetic gospel house cut ‘A Feeling.’ This was the first in a lauded series of releases for the label that brought Spen commercial and dancefloor success over the next decade, earning him international recognition as a house music pioneer.  In 2004, DJ Spen split from Basement Boys, releasing through Black Vinyl Records and his own label Code Red before founding his second imprint Quantize Recordings, which has since become a regular outlet for his music. Alongside his own productions, DJ Spen has built a reputation as a talented and prolific remix artist, putting his own unique stamp on pop anthems from Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Everything but the Girl, Toni Braxton and more. If that isn’t enough, he’s still spinning eclectic and soulful jams in clubs across the globe, further establishing his status as an eminent figure in house music, both past and present.
       

      DR PACKER:
      Dr Packer is an alias of West Australian DJ/Producer Greg Packer, set up for Remixes & Edits of mainly retro music such as 70’s, 80’s, 90’s Soul, Disco, Funk, Hip Hop & Reggae. Greg although known more for ‘Liquid Drum & Bass’ regularly plays sets of ‘Old School Funk, Disco & Hip Hop. Greg purchased his first record in 1982 at the age of 10. That record was ‘Grandmaster Flash – The Message’! Greg grew up in Northampton in the UK, frequently listening to his mother’s disco records (to which he says he had no choice!). In the 70’s it wasn’t uncommon to hear music such as ‘Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now’ or ‘And The Beat Goes On’ played in the house, so the disco thing really was his first introduction to music, records became his life and he has collected 25,000+ over the years.  Dr Packer has quickly become a mainstay in the sets of some of the biggest names in the disco world with the likes of Greg Wilson, Hot Toddy, Fingerman, Joey Negro and Norman Jay regularly featuring his edits in their performances. All of this support helped Dr Packer to be voted #1 in the Traxsource Top 20 Nu Disco Artists midway through 2015. At the end of the year Dr Packer came in at #4 in the Top 100 Disco Artists

      Rising L.A.-based ambient electronic artist shallou proudly releases his new single 'count on' today, as his mammoth 20 date, sold out North American headline tour draws to an end. 'count on' sees shallou (real name Joe Boston) apply his trademark fragile, emotionally-laden narrative over soulful melody and otherworldly, pulsating beats; it's a beautiful moment to mark the end of a huge touring schedule and to see out what can only be described as a life-changing year for the prodigious artist.
      The Maryland-born producer has had an exceptional 2018, performing worldwide, including a sold-out London date, and garnering over 235 million collective streams of his releases to date. He has been championed by FADER, Complex, NYLON, Clash, SPIN, SiriusXM and even had his face adorning a billboard in New York City’s Times Square.
       
      In tandem with the release, shallou has unveiled a new video, which was filmed in a beautiful Icelandic setting - watch it here. As with his exquisitely curated Nomad Series before this, the clip is a stunning visual accompaniment to his sounds.
       
      The single release is the follow up to shallou's seven track 'Souls EP', which was released earlier this year boasting a dynamic list of collaborators (Kasbo, RIAH, Cody Lovaas + more). Expect more music to come in 2019.
