      Following on from tech-house smash Generate earlier this year, Flash 89 is welcomed to the esteemed Solotoko label by head honcho himself Sonny Fodera, for latest killer release in the form of the Tattle Tail EP. 
       
      Lead EP track Tattle Tail is a rhythmic stomper on first listen, with an invigorating bassline underpinned beneath stuttering clicks and pulses that surrounds a grooving diva vocal. Meanwhile, Lofty transports us to deeper dimensions with an exhilarating build up that ascends into a club ready beast. 
       
      Flash 89 is a name that is continuing to magnify in size on the scene, turning the heads of underground peers and tastemakers alike. It was his remix of PNAU’s Go Bang that catapulted him beyond the Australian landscape landing him plays on BBC Radio 1. Shortly after, hefty club tracks continued to follow including Generate and the Blueprint EP as well as collaboration with Sonny Fodera himself on The Sytem via Adobe. With these slew of hair raising tracks already under his belt it’s no wonder Flash 89 gets the nod of approval from the likes of Danny Howard, De La Swing, Eli Brown, Detlef, Richy Ahmed, Huxley and more. With more material up his sleeves, prepare for Australia’s next high riser to dominate the dance circuit globally. 
       
      Flash 89 – Tattle Tail EP  is out now via Solotoko.

      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.

      Hardwell is the seasoned-veteran DJ/producer that’s behind Spinnin’s mammoth new tune. Boasting multiple international new music Friday playlists already, How You Love Me is a pop infused single that features the hugely respected artists, Conor Maynard and Snoop Dogg.

      Motez is the first of the three revered producers to work their magic on the heavenly original.

Elsewhere, we witness high riser Holmes John step up to demonstrate his skills on the majestic remix package, ascending dancefloors to darker dimensions of biblical proportion.
