Hextape ‘2 Fast 2 Furious’ Launch Rave
03 August 2019 @ 22:00 - 06:00 AEST
Factoid proudly presents:
2 FAST 2 FURIOUS LAUNCH RAVE
Released on Factoid on June 10th, 2019, 2 Fast 2 Furious is all in the name. Listening to the EP feels like racing along a dirt highway in a high-speed car chase at the end of the world in a ute that’s on fire and your apocalyptic nemesis hot on your heels. There’s nothing left to lose and nothing left to gain.
Despite weaving through a multitude of high BPM genres, 2F2F’s six songs have an unearthly synchronicity, moving through gabba, jungle, techno, and various shades of experimental electronics at breakneck speed. At first, the EP appears to be comprised exclusively of computer generated material; however beneath the surface, electromagnetic field recordings of power stations in the Blue Mountains have been used as sub bass & kick drums, adding a naturalistic effect throughout.
2F2F was recorded between 2017 and 2019, between Melbourne and the Blue Mountains. Aside from taking direct inspiration from The Fast And The Furious franchise and ACAB fantasies, the EP is a love letter to the hardcore continuum and portrays the magical realism of illegal raves. 2F2F comes from a happy place, exploring Hextape’s reveries and dreams.
This rave will celebrate the launch of 2F2F, and extend its themes of rave culture into reality.

This event is taking place in Naarm, the land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. It is important to bare in mind that the violence of colonisation in Wurundjeri country, and throughout all of Australia, is ongoing to the present day, as is the resistance. With that in mind, we pay our respect to all First Nations peoples and their elders, past, present and emerging, and acknowledge that sovereignty has never been ceded. First Nations peoples will be admitted free entry.
