    Adventure Club, Corporate Slackrs, Audigy and More Rock Club Cinema [Event Review]

    Sign in to follow this  

    Halloween came early last Saturday with the help of Florida’s homebred electronic acts and a super duo in Pompano Beach, Florida. Dubbed “Halloween Adventure” by event organizers Powerhouse, APEX, Hypnotic, 40K, and Like Minded at Club Cinema, the night starred Miami star Audigy, the Florida-born now Los Angeles residents Corporate Slackrs, and the Canadian dubstep tag team Adventure Club.

    From eight in the evening until two in the morning, the venue was filled with fans dressed up in costumes ranging from creative to witty. From simple accessories like cat and bunny ears to classic horror monsters like vampires and zombies to fan favorites like Batman or Naruto, the evening was filled with colorful guests bringing their A-game to rage to the hardest bass music. Opening acts like Loky, Carlos Angels, and Nghtkrawler kept the main stage entertained while acts like Trapia, JHØX, and Rottweilerz partied in the second room to a resounding and energetic crowd.

    When the dust settled from the overwhelming excitement the supporting DJs concocted for the evening’s headliners, Audigy stepped up to the decks and kicked off with dubstep’s most popular bangers like “Young & Dangerous” by Zomboy to classic cuts like “Jahova” by Rusko. With the exception of a couple of teasers to viral tracks like “XO Tour Llif3” by Lil Uzi Vert, Audigy’s set was an impeccable, sonic ride into bass music’s heaviest tracks of the year including some of his own originals and remixes.

    Switching gears, multi-genre players Corporate Slackrs hopped on the decks playing grungy electro house, vicious trap, and everything in between. They had the costumed audience riled with tracks like their collaboration “Raise Up” with ETC!ETC! and Petey Pablo, “Rock You” from Excision, and their remix of “Red Lips” by GTA and Sam Bruno.

    With the crowd hyped even more than before, it was time for the big guns to take center-stage and blow the roof off the place. Adventure Club spared no mercy on the crowd as they jumped into the most aggressive bass anthems like “Mosh Pit” by Flosstradamus. The duo flexed their DJing prowess with a mix of Skrillex’s “Would You Ever” with Flume’s edit of “Slasherr” and changing the flow from pure adrenaline-pumping bangers to their melodic classics like their remixes of “Collect Call” by Metric and “Lullabies” by Yuna.

    As the music grasped the crowd in a head-banging ritual, the visuals combined Adventure Club’s normal red and blue colors and juxtaposed them to Halloween-themed images from classic horror films and modern slasher flicks combining EDM with the spirit of the season. The duo ended the evening on a high-note mashing up many of their tracks from their debut album Red // Blue and concluding with a triumphant play of their remix to “Crave You” by Flight Facilities. The crowd lost their minds as they were cascaded by smoke from the fog machines above their head.

    With sweat, confetti, and masks on the floor, Halloween Adventure was a total success. Even though this was a make-up show due to the arrival of Hurricane Irma in early September, the event organizers were able to get everything and everyone together for a night of bass-filled entertainment and spooky kicks.

      When ‘Lord of the Mics’ Jammer, was recently pushed over on stage, in a shock incident at Wiley’s long-standing event ‘Eskimo Dance,’ claims quickly started to arise that it was none other than Premiership football legend Ian Wright who was the culprit.  The claims lead to a social media frenzy with speculation as to why Ian Wright would have been so angered by Jammer and why he was even in attendance at a grime event in the first place.  With confused fans of both parties calling for answers to the many questions that were on everyone’s lips, Ian Wright took to his own Instagram to respond to the whole situation.  The incident then snowballed and the entire scenario made national news.  Setting off a wave of hilarious memes (that included Jammer moonwalking) the story was trending across social media over several days.  Read here: https://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/latest-news/767371/ian-wright-jammer-video-grime-mc-england-push-twitter-eskimo-dance-printworks.

      This event lead Jammer straight into the studio and the result is a track called, yes, you guessed it: 'Ian Wright’ and by the looks of things, Ian fully approves: https://www.instagram.com/p/Bvl10k7lYG0.  In fact, Ian is fully embracing it and is also rumoured to appear in the video, which launches today, alongside a number of celebrity guest cameos from the football and music world.
       
      Although born from a negative incident that would be pretty difficult for any artist to recover from, Jammer has been quick to show that there is no place for any bad vibes and has flipped the situation in to a pretty epic outcome that only he could do.  Naturally pulling in one of the world’s biggest Football legends and also a production courtesy of huge Australian producer: ‘What So Not,’ (who has previously worked with Flume, RL Grime, Dillon Francis and Skrillex), ‘Ian Wright’ is born as an electronic grime masterpiece doused in wonky baseline and topped with Jammer’s lyrical skill and wit. 
       
      Known for his humour and creative genius to his hundreds of thousands of followers, Jammer is one of the foundational lynchpins of the grime scene.  Part of ‘Boy Better Know’ alongside Skepta and also director of seminal brand Lord of the Mics, Jammer gets it in the back of the net as 'Ian Wright' scores with football and music fans, plus anyone that enjoys a bit of top entertainment!

      Mathieu Koss is the French producer that’s collaborated with singer, song writer and rapper Aloe Blacc on a care free party anthem that’s jam-packed with musical positivity. Never Growing Up is a single that rejoices in the ability to connect with your inner silliness. The new video embraces these elements and depicts an imaginative version of what it’s like to be young. The narrative follows an abundance of children who take pleasure in disrupting the mundane pattern of the 9-5, all whilst Aloe Blacc and Mathieu Koss encourage the innocent injection of mayhem. 
       
      Since 2015, Mathieu Koss has delivered an array of persistent pop house tracks that are shamelessly tinged with the guilt-free atmosphere of summer. He saw his career sky rocketed after the release of Angus and Julia Stones’ folk flip, Big Jet Plane, alongside fellow dance enthusiast Alok. He continued to over flow musically with successes such as Best Is Yet to Come, Rebel Yell and Campfire. These releases saw huge DJ support from mammoth influencers like Sam Feldt, Robin Schulz, Lost Frequencies and Martin Garrix.

      Echoing Mathieu’s inspiring message of unity, Aloe Blacc always ensures an inspirational vocal that nods towards his jazz and soul roots. In 2013, Aloe Blacc received deserved recognition as a song writer after co-writing Avicii’s mega hit Wake Me Up, which shot to #1 in over 100 countries. Shortly following, Blacc released chart topping single The Man, followed by his Interscope debut album, Lift Your Spirit. The album went on to receiving a Grammy nomination for best R&B Album. Lift Your Spirit presented Aloe for the first time as a versatile artist that thrived through the medium of pop, soul, funk and R&B. Since then, Aloe Blacc has embraced more dance music realms by featuring on the Tiesto dance mix of Carry You Home and co-writing by Blacc and Stargate.
       
      Making the world their playground, the Never Growing Up video, follows a mischievous day in the life of children. The story sees the little actors planning their rebellion, and interrupting scenes of every day routine. Unwilling adults are depicted by carrying on their heavy work load, perfectly juxtaposed with the tracks invigorating pop-tinged melodies and Aloe’s earnest vocal performance. Eventually the adults join Mathieu Koss and give in to the playful nature of the song. They display an energising release in the form of complete chaos by throwing themselves into the important underlying message of the song, to never grow up.
       
      Mathieu Koss & Aloe Blacc – Never Growing Up is out now!

      Yolanda Be Cool know how to hit us in the heartstrings. You’d think the delivery of the glorious ‘Dance and Chant’ to start the year would be enough for our little souls, but here they are to spoil us yet again, with the announce of an epic 6 track remix package for our beloved nu-disco delight. Maybe it’s all the love in the air as we write this mid February, but our boys really do treat us well. With the original sitting on top of the ARIA Club Chart for a solid 5 weeks and counting, we can say these ones are officially tried, tested and certified.
       
      Always the life of the party, and ones to pull a crowd, Yolanda Be Cool have enlisted the help of their nearest and dearest to add their own unique flavours to the mix. First up, our German Queen Lookee, already getting spins across triple j with her remix, getting a bit deeper on the original, focusing on that four-on-the-floor disco beat. Head of Clarisse records, Mendo delivers a VIP and Redmix - transforming the tune into a late night house mix, adding his own eccentric twist with unique saxophone treatments. Lord of lords, DJ Glen, delivers a remix that is somehow the exact auditory version of the ‘Dance and Chant’ release artwork, almost as if from an intro of a sci-fi film, he brings in the bass for his super refined tech house vibes. Tommie Sunshine & SLATIN surpass their own reputation, delivering a remix that is instantly bright and sassy. Perfect for a summers day on Sydney harbour, upping that daytime energy in the breakdown. The acclaimed French nu-disco producer, Mark Lower, utilises sharp and bright beats before transitioning to one of the more laidback and cruisy remixes after the breakdown, whilst homegrown Generik’s mix instantly erupts with energy, transforming the tune into a cheeky mid set stunner.
       
      Yolanda Be Cool have delivered the goods time and time again with multiple international successes over the years including the diamond selling hit ‘We No Speak Americano’, along with ‘Sugar Man’, ‘From Me To You’, and ‘Soul Makossa’. All of which has lead to #1s in over 20 countries, 3 Beatport #1s and a tonne of platinum records throughout Germany, UK and Australia. A duo that continue to work so hard, they will play gigs in Brazil one day, and then back in Sydney the very next. Showing no signs of slowing down, Yolanda Be Cool, are set to play a tonne of shows over the Australian summer before moving on to Asia, Europe, capping it all off back in America.

      In a most welcome manifestation of the gradual societal and industry change regarding equality, this morning ARIA released the weekly club chart, topped by Sydney producer Beth Yen; the first solo female artist to achieve #1 since 2012. Also making her the fourth solo female artist to achieve this in ARIA chart history, following on from Helena with ‘Girl From The Sky’ - topping the chart for two consecutive weeks, and two other Australian females, Zoe Badwi with ‘Release Me’, and Sarah McCleod with ‘He Doesn’t Love You'.
       
      Not only competing with local producers for the top position, Beth Yen knocked an international artist off the top spot - arguably the most prolific producer of the last few years, Scottish superstar Calvin Harris with his hit single ‘Giant feat. Rag'n'Bone Man’. Only a few weeks out from the original release, Beth Yen’s single ‘Ocean’ debuted at #25, jumping up the chart with a stellar remix pack from Friendless, Buried King, Marcus Knight, Scott Diaz, and Ozclubbers' own @Adam Madd, reaching #1 today, and in turn making the history books.
       
      In one of the most serendipitous of occasions, the single was released by Hot Sunday Records just four weeks ago, on International Women’s Day. A shining example of the renowned Sydney’s DJ catalogue, Beth has taken inspiration from her years spent living and working as a DJ in Ibiza. For the release of ‘Ocean’, collaborating with Australian lyricist The Baroness, a regular vocalist of live shows with Peking Duk, and previously Flight Facilities. The song itself is about the ups and downs and life, and how people can draw you in and out much like the ocean. It is a rare find for dance music to be written with so much meaning and purpose, which has evidently resonated with her peers all across the country.
       
      In what is hopefully a sign of the changing times, Beth shared a message of encouragement to her peers, “This is not just a win for me but a win for LGBTIQ+ women and men in the dance music industry. I hope that this inspires anyone, especially women contemplating getting involved in electronic dance music to get out there and find a way just to do it. The music industry is listening and ready for you all.”
       
      Having grown up in the UK, Beth Yen cut her teeth rubbing shoulders with some of the world’s most influential DJs, from the likes of Masters at Work, Dennis Ferrer and Eric Prydz. From the humble underground clubs,  and later progressing to big room shows for Pacha Ibiza, London’s Egg, Sunset Music Festival alongside Avicii, and Sydney’s most prestigious Mardi Gras festival. Always with a finger on the pulse, Beth has produced originals across facets of house, funky, tech and nu-disco, with a genuine passion that is guaranteed to bring her more success stories such as this in the years to come.

      Sunshine is her real name. We're not shitting you - Sunshine Rosie Trott. Her parents were hippies. Her father lives off-grid in northern New South Wales somewhere. But the well known Melbourne DJ started in Perth.  Everyone has story – a past, a present and an imagined future. But Sunshine’s happens to be like a Hollywood script, except of course no-one has made this up - it’s all real and it spans triumph and tragedy and back again. It’s quite a thing, and she is quite something.
       
      Sunshine has been heating up the Melbourne scene for almost two decades already! If you ask her, Sunshine will say her sets are all about "fun". Earning her stripes in a myriad of different spaces around town, she’s created a sound that is truly her own. What gives her the edge is sheer versatility – you’re just as likely to hear bleeding-edge techno alongside tech house, house and disco all in the space of one beer. Hapno is the sound and it sure ain’t coming from anyone else.
       
      Ozclubbers' Galleon managed to get some one-on-one time with this amazing and yet still very friendly artist who has established herself as a staple in the Melbourne scene, well known these days for her Rise & Shine at Revolver Upstairs every saturday morning from 7am.
         
       
      So what or who inspired you to start DJing in the late 90's? Were there any influencial dj's or records that gave you the bug?
      Growing up I always had a passion for music. When it came to DJing there were a few things that sparked my interest and I had a moment where I knew thats what i wanted to do with my life. I was 14 yrs on a dance floor at a rave in the out skirts of Perth dancing to a DJ and I was so blown away with the energy he created mixing two records together and the effect that it had on the dance floor that I knew I wanted to learn how to do that and set off on a mission to DJ. I starting collecting records after that rave, moved to Melbourne when I was 16yrs because of the thriving music scene and finally was able to purchase my own set of Technics 1200's when I was 17yrs (Thanks to a loan form my mum which i'm forever grateful for). From the day I got my decks I practised everyday learning and perfecting my skills and I haven't looked back since. I still love DJing and couldn't imagine doing anything else.
      Other things that have influenced me are these two mix cds, I use to listen to them flat out when I was a teenager - Ritchie Hawtin - Mix Mag CD and Derrick Carter - Many Shades of Cajual CD.
      Also these were favs of mine when I was a teenager and still are today - Green Velvet - The Stalker, Moodyman - Shades of Jae, Kings Of Tomorrow - Fade To Black 

      You have been playing at Revolver for upwards of 18 years. How did you get your first gig at Revolver and what keeps you coming back each Saturday for Rise & Shine?
      Yeh I have. Its gone so fast. Revolver is definitely my musical home. When I first moved to Melbourne at 16yrs. I would buy records at Hardware and Rhythm and Soul record stores in Prahran and one time I went past revolver during the day and the guy working behind the bar said I could jump on the decks for practice. I was so stoked! Back then I was struggling to save enough cash to buy a pair of my own decks.  From that point on I started going to revs all the time which lead to a few guest spots on Friday early evening and then turned into a Wednesday night midnight residency which i held down for 2years. It was that set where I first learnt about how to build a dance floor playing different genres of music - funk, soul, hip hop, disco, house. Then at the end of that residency a DJ friend of mine Viva L'Amour, who at that time was the Saturday morning resident, invited me down to play and I feel in love with that set. It turned out she was ready to move on so I ended up taking over the spot which is now Rise & Shine.  It's my 16th year of playing every Saturday morning 7am-12pm and I still love playing to the regulars new and old and seeing the enjoyment they get dancing to my favourite music. 
       
      You have a style of playing that you loosely call "Hapno" (happy techno). Tell us a bit about this and why you infuse your techno with gospel vibes?
      Yeh thats a name I came up with years ago to explain the overall sound of what I play. Hapno ends up sounding like a fun, energetic, sometimes dark, sometimes joyus experience. I love to play at mixture of techno, soulful house and everything in between but put it together in a way of having no rules, as long as the feeling is the same with both records it doesn't matter what genre they are. My favourite type of vocals are gospel inspired ones and putting techno underneath just takes the energy on the dance floor to the next level.
       
      You recently formed the Disco Faith Choir who accompany you in live performances and sing gospel vocals over instrumentals (and some original productions). How did this come together and how do you guys work together, select tracks to perform and prepare?
      It came about when I was searching for a choir to sing on a track I was writing and I also wanted them to perform at the record release party. It turned out that it was harder than I thought to get a choir to want to perform at 2am so ended up starting my own and teamed up with gun choir leader Shobana Sebastian. After the first performance we did at the record release party I knew this is what I wanted to focus my creative energy on. It felt like a natural progression of my DJ sets adding the live element and bought the DJ sound i'm know for to life in 3D. For each show I put a set together of the perfect music and vocals that I think will have great energy on the dance floor and then Shobana helps bring my vision to life with the choir. Its a lot of fun and hard work leading up to each show.

      You have the new performance coming up in March called Angel Heart.  What can we expect to hear from both yourself and Disco Faith choir at this event?
      I'm so pumped for this. It set to be our biggest show yet. There will be a few favourite tracks in there with a bunch of new stuff two. We will also be performing for the first time our cover of Dreams and another new original called Fighting. 
       
      You consistently push out flawless productions be that originals and remixes. When making records in the studio, how do you work? Where do you start and do you always have the gospel techno vibe in mind?
      Thanks. When I start making any piece of music I make an 8 bar loop that has the guts of the track in it and then develop the arrangement from there. I find i'm way more inspired if i can imagine how the end result will sound. For Sunshine and Disco Faith Choir I do keep the gospel techno vibe in mind although sometimes it turns out more like gospel house with a tech edge depending on the music idea. For Sunshine originals and remixes I work on something until ive come up with a piece of music I'd love to play in my sets which could be anything from house to techno. 
       
      You aren't far off releasing a cover of Fleetwood Mac's seminal classic Dreams. Why did you select this one to release with the choir and who is on remix duties?
      I'm so excited for this to come out. The finished track is better than I could have ever imagined and it was a great experience going in the studio to record it with Jan Skubiszewski.  I've always been a big fan of Fleetwood Mac and in the Sunshine and Disco Faith Choir performances we have been doing a cover of it which works so well with the crowd and inspired us to give our own spin to it.  Ive been testing it out in the club at the moment and it goes offff :)...The original will be released first then I'll start looking at the right fit for remixes.

      Have you looked to overseas performances (Berlin or the like) for your gospel techno excursions?
      That is definitely a dream of mine to get myself as a DJ and also the Sunshine and Disco Faith Choir performances on the world stage especially Europe. For now i'm focusing on Australia and Melbourne which has always been so supportive of my music.

      So what's in store for the next 12 months for Sunshine?
      This years all about new music. A few new Sunshine and Disco Faith Choir singles will be out soon, followed by a couple of Sunshine originals. 

      What would be your top 5 records right now?
