    OzClubbers talks to Scottie Chappell about the origins of the IWTFA brand and pushing the boundaries of Techno here in Brisbane. The IWTFA crew is made up of Scottie Chappell, Aamir Raza, Jamie Grenenger, Pete Trimbacher & Rob Glasgow. Tell us about how IWTFA came about? I came to Australia on a 2 year working visa from Newcastle up on Tyne in England. During this time I called Brisbane home. I worked and attended events and met alot of great people from local house and techno DJs to promoters from all over Brisbane. This helped me begin to get involved in the Brisbane scene and I began having ideas about what would add to the ever-growing techno and house scene here. I met the crew around 2 or 3 years ago at various techno and house events. I’d watch them play and we'd chat at gigs. We all had the same interests in music and the same vision of what we wanted to do so we decided to form the brand. In the months prior to launching IWTFA, I went to many techno events in Melbourne: Machine, Bunker, Plexus, Melbourne Techno Collective, Cat House & experimental events like Factoid and Doppler. They all had incredible local, interstate and international artists and I saw how far techno was being pushed. This helped give us a vision of what we wanted to see in Brisbane. Thoughts on the Brisbane Scene Today? I think the Brisbane scene is doing well. There are so many great brands that push all spectrums of Techno & House such as Subtrakt, Andromeda, Shade, Unison, Buxton, Higher State, BTHC, Dragonfruit, Oxytocin, Flux, Melt, Pray Tell, La Vibrations, Lola, Bless Club and Bass Swag. One of the reasons things work well here is that there’s a promoters group so we can try to avoid clashes and support each other as we try to schedule events. However, it’s becoming harder with venue limitations here to push specific sounds as many venues only want to play commercial music. This scene has great potential so i think it’s really important for a decent clubbing culture to developed and be sustained. With many other brands in the scene, we wanted to do techno events that focus on and push specific sounds. We want to push the boundaries of techno... We focus on lighting and visuals for a real mood setting vibe no matter which venue we use and we have a specific flow in mind of how our events should run. We always have our local techno DJs on our lineups and we show our full support of them and even new artists that want to push themselves, we like to think we give these people a chance. At the time of launching IWTFA, we also began a podcast series on Soundcloud. Listen here. It’s a Brisbane collective aiming to produce sophisticated, refined techno that exposes local, interstate and international artists. We try to showcase these artists in their true form and let them express themselves with no boundaries in the field of techno.

    DJ Koze is one of those artists that can take a song and transform it in a way that feels comfortable while being a separate entity to its original and his remix of Gorillaz track Humility is no exception. The stems are used in a way that completely peels back the vocals and puts an emphasis on the underlying melodies and simple yet effective four fours. DJ Koze has been on fire lately and if you’re in Melbourne you can catch him operating alongside Charlotte De Witte, Gerd Janson and more at B3, which is shaping up to be huge. Check out Koze’s remix below and tell us what you think, is it better than the original? Source: Stoney Roads

    From the DJ’s perspective; since Larry Levan’s early days at the Paradise Garage, the remix – or playing different versions of songs – was one of the first notable aspects of what we now know as DJ Culture. His ethic of refreshing successful dancefloor movers in the late seventies passed down generations of DJ has been long-established as almost a perfunctory task, almost a must-do to be undertaken by the disk jockey. Each year sees new versions of old gems. Some, which even those of us remember in our fresher days, first time around. Occasionally you find that some years produce more than others. This year has already delivered a glut of new-oldies which even by now has you scratching your head and widening your eyeballs at the frequency of remix deliveries. Yes; in fitting with the northern hemisphere’s hedonism season, this year’s array of tracks is more-than-likely to guarantee multiple hands in the air and is quite remarkable. Especially considering how anthemic - many of these were in their first lifetimes. You only have to look at either Beatport, Traxsource or Juno’s 2018 remix collections to see this. Or even the number of free downloads on Soundcloud – lesser-known producers with their takes on classics, trying to gain support and not to be sniffed at, either. So far in 2018; we’ve had Underworld’s Born Slippy, Energy 52’s Café Del Mar, Shakedown’s At Night and Junior Jack’s E-Samba. Not to mention the rarer, more trainspotter tunes such as The Disco Evangelists’ De Niro, LSG’s Netherworld or Banco de Gaia’s Heliopolis. Even non-house music pearls such as Massive Attack’s Teardrop have been given a recent, respectable once-over. This week sees the release of a quite delicate rework, which could divide – or unite – opinions of dancefloor purists (although the latter is far more probable). Maceo Plex has undertaken the task of reinventing “Bladerunner” by the aptly-named artist, Remake. As such a heightened bootleg from the early nineties, it would require special attention to be a success, one would think. Championed twenty-five years ago by most household DJ names from the formative years of clubland – it would add another badge to the American, Plex’s impressive musical arsenal. Remixes could; for us addicts of the late night (and all day) tiles – signify the cycle of life and its trends or simply “what goes around” comes back around, only with a few tweaks. As David Bowie once said, “The only art I’ll ever study is stuff I can steal from.”

    Tee'd up with Miami dubstep lord Jupe to make an epic dance/trap infusion with the addition of vocals from Aussie artist Savoi Coming off the back of a huge set at Splendour In The Grass 2017, Enschway will be playing Australia's national Listen Out Festival this September, arguably one of Austalia's biggest He will also be taking the EP on a solo tour throughout July, hitting all capital cities in Aus plus a special show for NZ fans in Auckland EP also includes Australian club aficionado Perto and Aussie young-gun Leotrix Sydney-based Nic Schweighoffer aka Enschway, has once again teamed up with his mates throughout the global dance community to create the third EP in his infamous series of Friendschway EPs. On board for the third installment is Miami producer Jupe, Aussie artist Perto and the up and coming DJ, Leotrix, coming together to create an insanely eclectic three track EP ranging from EDM festival-ready drops to heaving club bangers. On the lead single off the EP, Nic employs Miami producer Jupe and Australian singer/songwriter Savoi to construct ‘Make It Work’ an epic dance and trap infusion that would fit perfectly into any EDM headliners festival set. Aussie club aficionado Perto lends his production finesse on ‘Lose It’, a definite crowd favourite in all of Enschway’s recent shows, and newcomer Leotrix blends his fresh ears with Nic’s expertise for ‘Can’t Stay Here’ creating an insanely dark and intricate mix. On the collaborations, Nic explained, “For Friendschway 3 I wanted to keep it short and sweet. Two super heavy disgusting tracks and one calmer more emotional song. The EP has been in the works for so long I’m just so happy it’s finally so close to release. I think Lose It w/ Perto has been finished for almost 2 years and has been the most anticipated release of ours. I’ve spent the last few months really trying to hone in on bettering the quality in the production so I’m hoping it shines through with this latest release. Hope everyone enjoys it. ” After his absolutely huge set at 2017’s Splendour In The Grass and sold out headline show at Oxford Art Factory, Enschway has been hand-picked as one of the few locals announced for Australia’s nationalListen Out Festival this September. He will also be taking Friendschway Vol. 3 on a solo tour throughout July, hitting all capital cities in Australia including Sydney’s Metro Theatre, plus a special show for New Zealand fans in Auckland. With his previous EPs receiving over 4 million collective streams online plus a run of reviews from YourEDM, Run The Trap, inthemix, EDM Tunes, it’s not doubt that Friendschway Vol. 3 will push Nic further onto the global scale, where he has already roused interest from top guns,Diplo, RL Grime and What So Not.

    Here is a fresh new mix from us—and one that definitely gives us the warm and fuzzies! So, our 'Attic' brand as a whole, the music we push—and, indeed, Andrew and I as individual DJs—is often centred around music on the lower, slower, deeper, warm-up tip. That is a label we've always worn with pride. Well, in this instance, our good friend, Flynn—of 'Move 4 Mood' fame—was kind enough to book us for a "peak time" set at The Flinders, and, with that, an opportunity to exercise our tougher, uptempo selections; as such, we did just that! We were fortunate to enjoy a heaving, packed dance floor from start to finish, and we delivered a strong selection of suitable cuts—all while staying fairly true to our Attic sound. The crowd response was phenomenal and we had a wonderful time making it all happen—hence the "warm and fuzzies" mentioned above! Hope you enjoy this one as much as we did! x > Download Here > Listen on Soundcloud : Tracklisting: 01 : Coeo - 'Back In The Days' (Original Mix) [Toy Tonics] 02 : Ari Bald - 'Moonshiner' (Original Mix) [Better Listen Records] 03 : Johannes Albert - 'Beach Reach' (Original Mix) [Fine] 04 : Duccio LP - 'I Can Stay Without You' (Original Mix) [Blaq Numbers] 05 : Slamb - 'Getting Back (To Myself)' (Original Mix) [Infinite Pleasure] 06 : Joe Corti - 'Mr. Kuti' (Original Mix) [Better Listen Records] 07 : Iban Montoro & Jazzman Wax - 'Leave Me Alone' (Original Mix) [Robsoul Recordings] 08 : Adryiano - 'Nite Talk' (Original Mix) [Shall Not Fade] 09 : Bobby Analog - 'Dr. In The House' (Original Mix) [Body Fusion] 10 : Tell - 'Y'all Feel That Honey' (Paradise Mix) [Quartet Series] 11 : Black Loops - 'Higher' (Original Mix) [Neovinyl Recordings] 12 : Folamour - 'La Pierre Et Le Sabre' (Original Mix) [Tronic Session Records] 13 : The Timewriter - 'Pasodoble' (Kruse & Nuernberg Remix) [Streetlight] 14 : Bas Roos - 'Searchin'' (Original Mix) [Exploited] 15 : Sidney Charles - 'Jack On The Rocks' (Sante's 90s House Jam Remix) [Off Recordings] 16 : Souldynamic - 'Equatoriale' (Original Mix) [Tribe Records] 17 : Adryiano - 'Me And You And Her' (Original Mix) [Heist Recordings] 18 : Soul Reductions - 'Got 2 Be Loved' (Original Mix) [Take Away] 19 : Pierre Moritz - 'Eunuque Millionnaire' (Original Mix) [Shall Not Fade] 20 : Slamb - 'I Want Your' (Original Mix) [Blaq Numbers] 21 : Unknown - 'Track 3' [House Of Disco] 22 : Loose Change - 'Straight From The Heart' (Joey Negro Straight To The Groove Mix) [Z Records] 23 : Detroit Swindle - 'Just Not Norma' (Original Mix) [Heist Recordings] 24 : Knuckle G. - 'You Got Me' (Original Mix) [De La Groove] 25 : Folamour - 'Hearts Melting Into An Ocean' (Original Mix) [Kyoku Records] 26 : Speed Boat - 'Speed Tool 001' (Original Mix) [Nail Shop] 27 : Li'll Bo Tweak - 'Musics Hypnotising' (GhettoStep Mix) [Loungin' Recordings] 28 : Vaggio - 'Don't You Want Some More' (Original Mix) [Ovum Recordings] 29 : Midland - 'Double Feature' (Original Mix) [ReGraded] 30 : Brame & Hamo - 'Roy Keane' (Original Mix) [Brame & Hamo]
