    Foreign Beggars Bio:
    Since their formation in 2002, multi-genre UK trio Foreign Beggars’ unique trajectory has seen them evolve from underground hip hop heroes, to a trailblazing electronic crossover act.  Without ever forsaking an ounce of their inimitable energy, Foreign Beggars are equally pumped whether in the studio recording or jumping around on stage at one of their live shows.

    The crew have released five studio albums to date: Asylum Speakers, Stray Point Agenda, United Colours Of Beggattron, The Uprising and I AM LEGION with Dutch production wizards Noisia.  It is with great pride that they announce the completion and upcoming release of their finest work to date - their sixth full length album: 2 2 KARMA.

    The first single ‘Toast’ from 2 2 KARMA will be released in February 2018. ‘Toast’ is produced by their long time musical partner Alix Perez and features the highly acclaimed Izzie Gibbs and Dizmack.  ‘Toast’ is packed with pace and precision, showcasing their place as the finest rappers from the UK.

    Always keen collaborators, the Beggars have worked with a plethora of artists worldwide from a wide musical spectrum.  2 2 KARMA sees collaborations with the likes of: Kate Tempest, OG Maco, Izzie Gibbs, Dizmack, Killa P & Irah, Shogun, Black Josh, Marcello Spooks, Zu and Andre Laville.  The album features productions from: Flux Pavilion, Spor/Feed Me, Alix Perez, Ivy Lab and Bangzy.  Collaborative highlights from their past include: Noisia, Dirtyphonics, Knife Party, Skrillex, Birdy Nam Nam, D’onaeo, Skinnyman, Jack Beats, Alix Perez, Tommy Lee, Eprom and Flux Pavilion.
    The critically acclaimed group have built this steadfast reputation as one of the UK’s most versatile, creative and prolific acts through a continuing desire to push the envelope, in a manner that is as urgent now as it has ever been.  With a top ten hit, over 80 million YouTube plays and a string of international headline dates ahead of them, things are going from strength to strength for the Beggars.

    Festival highlights include: Glastonbury, Stereosonic, EDC Vegas, Hard LA, Shambhala, Exit, Outlook, Snowbombing, iTunes Festival, Field Day, Rhythm and Vines, SXSE, Electron, Glade, SW4, Lovebox, Garrorock, Sonar, NH7, Igloofest, Urban Art Forms, Brixton Academy, Dour Festival, Lowlands.

      They are back now and ready to explode with a houser as hot as the approaching Australian Summer.
       
      Running is a slice of uplifting, piano-infused house with a nod to long lazy afternoons and sunsets spent on the beach.
       
      With a solid array of stellar remixes from a number of talented producers, there really is something for everyone with this track!
       
       
      BoogieKnights themselves give us a funky ass Got a Horn remix.
      J Cannons & Steve Hart bring a hell of a chug.  Tonky's Fisher inspired mix will have you Losing It at one listen. 
      Up & comer Buzz William delivers a shape set to smash any big room dancefloor it lands on
      Adam Madd cruises in with a chilled sunday afternoon beachside vibing mix.
      Tim Light brings us a real driving tech house banger.
      James Tobin’s remix is something you would easily find playing in any big club!
      Skorpio goes sidewards with a bit of a minimalistic electronica mix
      Darren Somerville bring back the banging house sound
      And finally, Terry Moyaz and Captain Kuda give a nice big room sound with a bit of original rapping thrown in at the end!

      After the success of the very first overseas ‘Mobile Disco’ in Bali recently, Carl and Eric also just wrapped up a string of Australian & New Zealand Winery Tour Dates featuring the fabulous: Cece Peniston & Robin S! Where the Music Policy was strictly: Funk, Disco, Soul Grooves & Classic House!
       
      From Carl & Eric:
      “The Mobile Disco tour was fantastic this year, we absolutely love this event.  It is an opportunity for us to dig into our record collection, play some of our most loved tracks, songs that were part of our growing up, songs that have influenced us over the years.  It is a pleasure for us to share the music.  This tour was a tour of ‘firsts.’ In Brisbane, we went to Roma Parklands for the first time, we also went to the Barossa Valley, Canberra and Queenstown, all for the first time.  Each event was unique. For Brisbane, we were right in the city of the tiered levelled venue and it was fantastic, the crew definitely brought a huge vibe to the event! Queenstown, the adventure capitol, the weather a month out looked like it was going to be clear skies and sunny.  Just three days out from NZ the weather (using the travel agent’s words) “looked horrific.” With multiple flight cancellations we finally caught a connecting flight (with little time in-between).  The weather Gods were on our side and the worst of the Queenstown weather held off.  Queenstown crew turned up and they were ready! It was cold with a bit of drizzle but you guys came prepared and we loved it.  It was our first time in Canberra too and it was amazing! Set in the beautiful Botanical Gardens, we’d like to send a big thank you to the ‘Kicks Entertainment’ crew, for the great set up and a fantastic crowd.  Finally, the last show of the tour was at the stunning Barossa Valley.  As you know, we are the ‘Mobile Disco’ and move around, so it was a special venue in Seppeltsfield, what a history, the event space was placed right amongst the gum trees.  Thank you to Seppeltsfield – SA, Cargo Brewery at Waitari Creek – Queenstown, Kicks Crew – Canberra and Brisbane Tourism/Marketing/Events and Parklands for making it a tour we won’t forget.  Also, a huge thankyou to Robin S and Cece Peniston.
       
      Melbourne, as you know it’s not possible to do a ‘Mobile Disco’ this coming February and we have had lots of messages asking if we could do another date.  Well we have been working really hard to find another venue and get the permits through in time and we are happy to say that we have a city centre, green venue: Piknic Électronik at The Sidney Myer Music Bowl.  This will be a thank you gig for all the Mobilizers that have supported us over the years, with a special priced ticket.  We are going back to basics with Carl and Eric on the decks from the beginning to the end.  See you on the Dancefloor!” 
       
      CARL & ERIC’S MOBILE DISCO:
      PIKNIC ÉLECTRONIK
      7 HOUR SET
      SUNDAY 20th JAN 2019
      SIDNEY MYER MUSIC BOWL, MELBOURNE
      Tickets: https://bit.ly/2E3A2HL
       
      About event: Carl & Eric will be doing what they do best! Digging deep through their extensive record collections and picking out their favourite soul, funk and disco tracks that they were brought up with and tracks that have influenced them over the years.  It’s a known fact that they have many gems in the archives! 
       ‘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. 

      So get those disco shoes ready, this is one ‘Mobile Disco’ you won’t want to miss!!

      An
      YET AGAIN, Brisbane is being spoilt for choice as another great artist is set to return to the garden Capulet this weekend. OzClubbers was lucky enough to have a very candid chat with Jody ahead of this weekend's show brought to you by Lemon & Lime.
      As always with OzClubbers we like to keep it local and ask questions that the fans themselves want to know.  This Q&A was developed in collaboration with our very own Anjuna Brisbane crew!  Big ups to A.B.C Crew Admin Jason Whyte and crew member Riley Keatch.
       
        Artist Name: Jody Wisternoff
      Label: Anjunadeep
      What’ve you got planned for us here in Brisbane on September 16?
       
      Gonna be road testing a lot of new material from Anjunadeep10 which is nearing completion, a few new JW remixes, some classic WOW and just a bunch of hot shit basically! It’s gonna be a day to remember!
      You’ve been to Brisbane a few times – what do you like about?
       
      The parties are always daytime which I’m a huge fan of. This is a concept we’ve really embraced with the Anjunadeep open air events this summer! Capulet is such a fun spot to play, super intimate and a lovely friendly crowd. I usually end up getting kidnapped and going out afterwards too.
      How do you prepare for a set when you’re travelling?
       
      By listening to new music with my ears lol. But seriously, decent noise cancelling headphones are essential (BOSE) and a lot of planning in Rekordbox and Ableton. I generally like to map out my sets beforehand, although things usually change in the heat of the moment…
      Any thoughts on the progressive scene at the moment?
       
      In its broadest sense ie. including deep house/melodic techno/desert music etc, I think the scene is super healthy at the moment, worldwide!  Our Anjunadeep parties are starting to get booked at some of the best venues in the world. Printworks in London coming up for example. The show we did at Mirage in Brooklyn in the summer sold more tickets than a lot of the super trendy hipster parties around at that time.  Asia seems to be an expanding market for our sound right now too. So all in all I feel things are rocking at the moment!
      How is the progressive scene different to other crowds? Eg a techno or EDM crowd.
       
      I don’t really go to many techno parties and I know the EDM crowd is mostly very young. What I can say about the crowds we seem to pull is that people are generally extremely friendly and really care about the music. We get quite a few young ones (recent converts from trance) a few old ravers and everything in between - plus a good female to male ratio!
       
      Our scene here is relatively small - as a DJ do you have any thoughts on keeping the scene alive?
       
      Of course, because the scene is my livelihood pretty much. I can only do my bit really, a small cog in a big wheel.
      You got into music at the early age. What’s around these days that parents could show their kids to get them interested in making electronic music?
       
      I would suggest FL Studio (fruity loops) or garage band as an entry point. However, I did recently install FL Studio on my daughter’s laptop as an attempt to train her up as my young padwan but she only seems interested in playing Simms lol.
      Any work started on Anjunadeep 10?
       
      It’s nearing completion and I’ll be road testing some of it at the Brisbane show.
      Who’s your favourite producer?
       
      Volen Sentir.
      What do you listen to in your downtime?
       
      A lot of oldskool hiphop (1986 - 1990) and Rave (1990 – 1991) eg. before the BPM’s went crazy and it all got corny. Not much country music, although I do love the soundtrack to Crazy Heart!

      Dutch duo, Showtek, in conjunction with Symbiotic, have announced an exclusive Australian show for one night only, in which they will be showcasing a musical spectrum from their early years until today.  And international favourite MaRLo will be joining Showtek at their Melbourne show!
       
      Flirting with the Hardstyle sound with performances at Defqon.1 and Knockout Circuz, fans will be treated with two special sets from Showtek exhibiting their current sound, as well their hardstyle sound, with classic hits such as ‘FTS’ and ‘Expansion.’
       
      "We are so excited for this show.  We love our Australian Fans, who have been supporting us from the beginning.  So, to all the Showtek fans around Australia, come check us out and experience a night for the books.  We will be playing the full spectrum of the Showtek sound, from FTS to BOOYAH, to our newest upcoming singles.  We can’t wait" - SHOWTEK

      Leaving a mark on charts, dance floors and music enthusiasts the world over, Dutch born / Aussie MaRLo backs up the #1 Best Trance DJ and #2 overall DJ in Australia with no justification required.  From Beatport #1’s, escaping the studio, to headlining some of the most sought after dance events in the world, MaRLo is influencing trance, tech trance and progressive house music like no other.  With a solid European beginning, now Australian residing MaRLo took inspiration from pioneers Mauro Picotto, Aphex Twin, Ferry Corsten and The Prodigy where the studio came before the shows and a live act was how he ignited.  Driving an incredible talent in the studio, he has risen to striking heights claiming top chart spots.  Signed to Armin van Buuren’s ‘Armada Music A State of Trance Recordings’ proudly boast releases that have taken the world by storm, with Armin personally noting that MaRLo knows how to program the best lead sounds.
