     ‘Mobile Disco’ began in Melbourne, Australia with 150 of Carl & Eric’s closest friends.  It’s gotten bigger each year with more friends & jazz, funk and disco loving fans coming along for the ride.  ‘Mobile Disco’ is now a ‘Must Attend’ national tour playing to sold out boutique shows at some of the most picturesque locations across Australia.  They embarked overseas for the first time, grooving Bali in fine form only a couple of weeks ago and will be also heading to New Zealand this November. 

     Both Carl & Eric will be entertaining the crowd from the start of the day til the end and are also excited to announce that special guests: Cece Peniston & Robin S will be performing live on stage.  Cece Peniston and Robin S come from that amazing house music sweet spot of the 90s.  These diva vocalists arguably have the two most iconic classic genre defining vocal house tracks ever written.

      Things always seem sweeter when they don’t come easy.  The Kalahari Ferrari had no intention of making our journey an easy one.  Ten minutes down the road we found ourselves at a stand still, our faithful steed stubbornly refusing to leave the refuge of the emergency stopping lane. Minutes quickly turned hours but finally our roadside Mac’gyver’ing paid off and just as the sun began to set we headed through gate 5 of the Melbourne showgrounds towards the show we left at 2pm to attend.
       
      Returning for its third year, PURE, presented and curated by Carl Cox, Eric Powell (Bush Records) and Richie McNiell of Hardware promised to be a stand out on the years Techno calendar.  Walking through the main entrance of the grand pavilion, countless arrays of green and red lasers dissected the darkness above the heads of the crowd that disappeared into the distance. 
       
      The huge stage, reaching almost from one side of the pavilion to the other & constructed of giant rectangular LED screens that glowed with the Pure logo.   As we walk through the smoke, toward the stage, the press of the crowd soon stopped us in our tracks. 
       
      Joseoh Capriarti, who to my delight was playing Cave - Street Carnival as we approached the pavilion had begun easing it back a little.  There was only 15 minutes till the big man himself was due to appear.  From our current vantage point, just in front of the sound & light desk, Capriarti was invisible.  The dj box, wedged between two beautifully projection mapped tetris bricks, was shrouded in darkness.  The decision to move to a better vantage point before Carl began was agreed on but not before the bar for a refreshment.  I’ve heard its important to stay hydrated at these kind of things.
       
      The first of many pleasant surprises during the evening was the surprisingly affordable prices of the drinks.  $9 for a Mountain Goat can seemed quite reasonable.  By the time I’d managed to separate the card from it’s compatriots in my wallet, the bartender was waiting to lip read my order.  Easily the quickest bar service I’ve ever had at an event of this size. 
       
      Ice cold drink in hand we head to find ourselves a better view of the stage.  Sneaking down the left hand side we make it a lot closer to the stage just in time for Capriarti’s last tune.  Retreating into the darkness the decks stand empty for what seems like and eternity.  Nervous energy builds as engineers scurry back and forth checking the equipment.
       
      Out of nowhere the man appears.  In true Carl Cox fashion he greets the crowd over the microphone and drops his first tune, a classic piano house stomper.  The vibe quickly gets more tech, luminous green letters 10 metres high spell out his name but even with eyes closed there is no doubt who is behind the decks. 
       
      A young crowd, half of which weren’t even born when Carl dropped his first tune lap up tune after tune like mother’s milk.  A dancefloor casualty oozes past and we decide to explore the rest of the venue.
       
      A short stroll past the bar and we stumble across the other stage.  A welcome respite, the fresh air and surprising warm sound from the system draw us in.  Leeboy & Handsdown are smashing it out to a decent size crowd considering the big man is on inside.  Cracker after cracker from these two make it difficult to leave but Carl beckons.  Green tunnels of laser light greet us as we walk through the front once again.  The sound is big but lacking something in the bottom end.  This happens sometimes with big rooms so we scout out a sweet spot and settle in.  45 minutes in and things are beginning to get serious.  I forget about taking notes for a while and allow myself to get lost in the music.   
       
      With an empty can in hand and a few beads gathering on my forehead, we head for the bar and the cool respite of the stage outside.  Melbourne mainstay and all round nice guy, Matt Radovich is pulling people away from the main arena with rock solid house.  “I know your number one” repeats the sample and the building crowd agree.  A breaks driven houser grooves things up a little for the still building crowd.  Oh breaks how I miss you but I digress.  I really cant speak highly enough of Matt’s set or him in general, he really deserves every accolade he receives.
       
      Heading back inside, Carl is pushing a big room techno sound to a sold out crowd, leaving another generation in awe of a true pioneer of electronic music.  His last tune is somewhat reminiscent of the Carl I saw back in ’97.  Tough as fuck with a dash of acid.  My smile won’t quit and he exits the stage to cheers and a sea of hands raised high.
       
      I had never seen Marco Carola play before but in my opinion was the perfect way to round out the evening. I’ve always been a fan of the harder side of electronica and Marco delivered the kind of sounds I had been expecting from the start.  Driving big room tech stompers.  Banger after banger.  As we left the main arena for the last time I mentally pencilled PURE into my calendar for next year.  My only concern, will the Kalahari Ferrari get us home?

      One of Australia’s most loved techno events: PURE, returns for its fourth year in 2019, to announce its biggest line-up to date! PURE, presented and curated by Carl Cox, Eric Powell of Bush Records and Richie McNeill of Hardware, will see Carl Cox (Intec, Australia), Marco Carola (Music On, Italy), Joseph Capriati (Redimension, Italy), Enrico Sangiuliano (Drumcode, Italy) and Eric Powell (Bush Records, Australia) take PURE to new heights in 2019.
       
      After its first year in Ibiza winning ‘Best Event’ of the summer in September 2017, this year the Australian leg expands to include Adelaide fans for the first time alongside regulars: Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane.  PURE 2019 will tour Australia over the Easter weekends in April 2019 and Adelaide will also be getting in on the action of Australia’s largest techno event! Adelaide ravers get ready!
       
      Celebrating techno and house music, PURE has quickly established itself as a ‘must attend’ event for dance music fans, thanks to its reputation as an event where the audience can make a special connection with the DJs.
       
      In April of 2016, Carl Cox launched the first instalment of his PURE event in Australia.  Taking place in Melbourne and Sydney, the event showcased players from the global Techno and House movements.
       
      Marco Carola from Italy has enjoyed being a global techno ambassador, instrumental in the development of the electronic scene in the early 90’s.  Over twenty years later and Marco is still one of the most respected artists amongst the techno faithful, widely regarded as one of the key factors in driving the genre towards worldwide recognition within electronic music.  Joseph Capriati from Italy needs no introduction.  Now over a decade into his career as a globally touring DJ, there’s hardly an accolade he hasn’t achieved.  He is deservedly one of techno’s most in-demand headliners and continues to better himself as an artist.  Capriati’s brand of slick and emotive techno, delivered with precision, flair and infectious energy, has become a staple highlight of the global club and festival circuit.  Enrico Sangiuliano is a name you will have noted if you have been anywhere in the electronic music scene over the last few years.  International recognition came in 2015 with his remix of DJ Boris’s ‘Can You Hear Me’ on Alleanza, claiming the title as Beatport’s ‘highest selling techno track’ and being known for his driving techno, reminiscent of his peers Joseph Capriati and Marco Carola.
       
      Join the crew for a night of Pure techno, delivered with incredible sound in an old fashioned no nonsense, no fluff rave atmosphere.
      Pure 2019 Lineup Line-up:
       
      Carl Cox (Intec, Australia)
