      Frisson Records is the creation of Mark Pridmore and his Czech Republic friend and label co-founder, Ctirad Koloja. The label is based mostly in Brisbane and currently focused on the styles of house, tech house and progressive.
       
       OzClubbers attended a number of the very successful label parties hosted by Mark recently.  We thought it was time to spread the word on how they are helping local artists get exposure, get their music heard and helping people to enjoy what they do.
      The first half of 2018 has seen the parties showcase exciting new talent, well established DJ’s and also friends of the label. The events have been all about the music and if you like supporting local talent and get into house and progressive then we strongly encourage you to check out their next event! Details Here.
      So far events have seen performances by CAIN, Batchelo, TAGLO, Nafta, King Friendly, Avaxxa, Lifestream and MOTION.  For ALL THE VIBES, take a listen to CAIN and Lifestream going B2B at one of the parties Here

      About Frisson
      With their industry experience already spanning several years, Mark and Ctirad have been involved with everything from performing and promoting to music journalism and artist management. It was their mutual love of electronic music and a desire to get further involved that made them decide to launch the label.   Young up and coming artist CAIN (Mark’s son) was also some of the reason behind the initial beginnings of Frisson. Cain and his friends were producing music and would struggle at times to find a label or a good outlet to promote and release their music. Initially Frisson was able to help them, but it didn’t stop there. Today they continue to assist new up and coming artists and create opportunities for those that are truly committed and passionate about their music.

      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.

      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.”

      With a smooth ability to produce across multiple genres, this time Gil Sanders dives into the trap realm with his latest track - Over The Hill. Combining intricate chopped up synth chords with intelligent sampling and adding the soothing vocals of Zay, Over The Hill is a forward thinking, future heater that is sure to make you feel them feels.  
      If you have not heard the name Gil Sanders already you should get familiar with it. Gil jumped into the scene by taking out Italy's best remixer award in 2014 and has not stopped since, having originals and remixes on Spinnin, Armada and Flamingo to name a few.  
      Over the Hill is set for release on June 22nd 1018. Remixes come courtesy of Jordan Magro, Dash One, Bust-R, Romy Black and HEYRO and are due for release on July 13th 2018.
