    Looks like Earthcore Festival is in the middle of some serious drama


    OzClubbers

    Boutique Victorian festival earthcore has come under fire from a number of its headlining acts for allegedly failing to pay them for their appearance in the lead up to the event.

    Tel Aviv duo Coming Soon and trance act Phaxe were both due to appear at the festival’s flagship event in Elmore this November — and at earthcore’s additional events in Brisbane, Sydney, and Perth — but have now announced via Facebook that they will no longer be playing.

    “We want to let you know that we have cancelled earthcore Festival this year,” Coming Soon wrote. “The reason for the cancellation is because the owner of this festival didn’t pay us until now, and didn’t even book a flight…[This is] after many threats of cancelling us if we will not be patient.

    “We have to mention that [we’ve never been] treated like that ever in our 15 years in the industry and we will never work with this promoter ever again. We kindly ask all our fans who buy tickets to see us live on one of this festivals to request a full ticket refund…we refused other gigs in order to make earthcore, and we lost a lot of money from this issue. ”

    The duo also claimed that there are “more than 10 other artists” on the bill who are set to pull out of the festival, having faced similar issues with the promoter. They also alleged that the owner knows “he cannot pay all the artists” but is using “their names in order to gain more ticket sales.” They promised to publish their conversation with the promoter shortly.

    “We wish all the people that do go to one of this festival very much luck and hope they will enjoy this budgetless and multi-problems festival,” they signed off. “Dont expect it to be what you [think].”

    This directly contradicts an admin post on the earthcore QLD Facebook page, in which organisers claimed that Coming Soon and fellow act Bliss pulled out because they were “double booked”.

    Danish artist Phaxe also cited payment issues as the reason for his cancellation, writing on Facebook: “We are sorry to announce, that Phaxe…has to cancel the Australia tour for Earthcore, as the organizer did not fulfill the terms of our agreement.”

    Read the full posts from Coming Soon and Phaxe below, at the time of writing no other artists have officially announced their cancellation.

    Earthcore is due to take place between November 23 and 26 in Elmore; inthemix has contacted earthcore founder Spiro Boursine for comment.

      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.

      Here is a fresh new mix from us—and one that definitely gives us the warm and fuzzies!
      So, our '
      Hello guest! Please register or sign in to view the hidden content. ' brand as a whole, the music we push—and, indeed, Andrew and I as individual DJs—is often centred around music on the lower, slower, deeper, warm-up tip. That is a label we've always worn with pride. Well, in this instance, our good friend, Flynn—of 'Move 4 Mood' fame—was kind enough to book us for a "peak time" set at The Flinders, and, with that, an opportunity to exercise our tougher, uptempo selections; as such, we did just that!
      We were fortunate to enjoy a heaving, packed dance floor from start to finish, and we delivered a strong selection of suitable cuts—all while staying fairly true to our Attic sound. The crowd response was phenomenal and we had a wonderful time making it all happen—hence the "warm and fuzzies" mentioned above! 
      Hope you enjoy this one as much as we did!
