      Synthony is a unique collaboration between orchestras, DJs, live vocalists and feature musicians, playing the biggest dance tracks of the last 30 years. 
       
      Featuring, state of the art audio, lights, lasers and a visual show that will transport you to a fully immersive, nightclub experience.  An energetic show from the outset, this is not an orchestra as you know it.  This celebration of dance music is more than just a show, it takes the audience on a nostalgic journey, back through their most memorable electronic experiences. 
       
      The magic of Synthony is that the music programming is a tightly held secret, so the audience are in for a surprise at each show.  Past shows have featured arrangements of tunes by the likes of: Fatboy Slim, Delirium and Robert Miles to name a few.
       
      Synthony's New Zealand shows in 2017 and 2018 were attended by Sold Out audiences and now the tour will expand, playing in 4 New Zealand cities and making its Australian debut in Brisbane at the beautiful and historic City Hall.
       
      More about Synthony
      Synthony is a show produced by kiwi DJ and producer: Erika Amoore.  The unique show’s roots began in 2017, when Erika and co-founder David Elmsly approached Peter Thomas (Conductor and Music Director of ASO) after watching Pete Tong’s BBC ‘Ibiza Proms’ on YouTube and wanting to experience a similar event in New Zealand.  Rather than hope the event would one day reach New Zealand, they decided to put the show on themselves.  Peter was immediately taken with the idea and knew it was something the ASO would love to work on.  He enlisted Ryan Youens (an Arranger with hundreds of professional credits to his name), including film scores for ‘The Hobbit an Unexpected Journey' and 'The Desolation of Smaug' and for events such as the Rugby World Cup and Pan-Arab Games.
       
      After sold out events in 2017 and 2018, Erika and David could see a huge potential for the event that went beyond Auckland and knew more was needed to scale the event.  In late 2018, they partnered with Duco events - this new partnership allowed Erika to leave her corporate job and work on delivering Synthony to its full potential, full time.  In addition to the New Zealand tour, the first Australian shows are scheduled for 2019 and other territories across Asia and the U.S are in the pipeline.

      Purple Disco Machine has unveiled the slick new visual for his hit single ‘Body Funk’.
       
      Directed by Nicole Alexander, the innovative video for ‘Body Funk’ features a gradually growing assortment of purple dancers coming together for a tightly choreographed dance-off in a futuristic warehouse.
       
      Following the release of the Carl Cox remix, also being released today is the remix from rising star and Sweat It Out label brother Dom Dolla - whose recent single ‘Take It’ has catapulted his success, hitting #1 on Beatport and topping the Shazam charts across Europe.
       
      Since the release of ‘Body Funk’, the single has garnered over 12 million streams and has been supported by the likes of Black Madonna, Jamie Jones and Fatboy Slim. The single has spent a second week #1 on the BBC Radio 1 Dance Chart and is continuing to get multiple plays across the R1 dance music family including Danny Howard, Pete Tong, MistaJam and Annie Mac - who crowned the track her ‘Hottest Record In The World’.
       
      With remixes under his belt for Calvin Harris, Fatboy Slim, Weiss and Shakedown, Dresden-born producer Purple Disco Machine has become one of the decade’s most notable producers. 2018 saw him achieve an impressive feat on Beatport where four of his productions each secured a top 3 position.
       
      Having enjoyed a stellar 2018, Dresden born disco-house producer Purple Disco Machine is quickly becoming one of the most prolific and sought after producers in the industry. Having recently remixed Calvin Harris, Fatboy Slim, Weiss and Jax Jones, he has also been named as Beatport’s #2 artist of all time.
       
      Complete with an compelling and inventive narrative, the video for ‘Body Funk’, plus remixes from Carl Cox and Dom Dolla are out now, with a Claptone remix due next Friday 12th April.

      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.

      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)
      Marco Carola (Music On, Italy)
      Joseph Capriati (Redimension, Italy)
      Enrico Sangiuliano (Drumcode, Italy)
      Eric Powell (Bush Records, Australia)
      And more to be announced.
