    Storm Festival Australia Pushes Back Dates Due To Replications From Literal Storm


    Guest

    The inaugural Storm Music Festival Australia in Sydney is being forced to reschedule its upcoming event due to a hitch in production caused by a literal storm…

    It all started when Storm Music Festival Shanghai was shut down last month due to intense, torrential downpours that flooded the grounds. Not only did it impact the Shanghai event, but the production and operations of the Australian festival have been adversely affected by the incident ever since.

    “Our team has made the difficult decision to reschedule Storm Music Festival Australia so that we can deliver the true Storm experience for our fans,” the festival officially states in a social media post.

    “We’ve been working around the clock to make the original event date work, but it is just not possible. An announcement on a rescheduled date will be made soon.”

    Refunds may be requested, otherwise VIP upgrades are available for those looking to roll with the punches. Although it’s unclear when Storm Music Festival Australia will take place, December 9 is out.

    Confirmed acts include NGHTMRE and Ephwurd, with more to be announced.

    Storm Music Festival Australia Official Statement

    As many fans of Storm Festival are aware there were adverse weather conditions at Storm Music Festival Shanghai and this…

      Felix Buxton & Simon Ratcliffe (better known as Basement Jaxx) are double BRIT and GRAMMY award winning artists who have graced the biggest stages across the world, including: headlining the main stage at Glastonbury Festival, Hyde Park in London and The Hollywood Bowl.
       
      Following on from their ground-breaking 2011 album collaboration with The Metropole Orkest and the now seminal LIVE shows that accompanied it in London & the Netherlands, Basement Jaxx will unveil a new and updated version of the project as they creatively collide LIVE on stage with Sydney’s The Metropolitan Orchestra at the iconic Sydney Opera House, as well as stops in Melbourne & Brisbane.
       
      Comprising magical re-interpretations of all the Basement Jaxx floor-fillers, as well as specially commissioned new work and a few surprises along the way, the show will also feature legendary Jaxx singers Vula & Sharlene Hector on powerhouse vocal duties.

They’ve collaborated with the likes of: Robyn, Sam Sparro, Dizzee Rascal and have remixed for the likes of Pet Shop Boys, Daft Punk, Justin Timberlake, Adele, Mary J Blige and more.

      One of the Pioneers of the dance music world: Sister Bliss from Faithless, will be touching down in Sydney this December for the first time in 10 years. Currently playing in some of the world’s hottest clubs, Sister Bliss will excite her Aussie fans with an exclusive Faithless DJ set, but she's taken time out of her busy tour planning to chat with Ozclubbers' @GALLEON and @Adam Madd.
       
       
      You’ve been around music since you were 5, but what first drew you into the electronic music scene and what inspired you to start DJing?
      I think the otherworldly sounds of synthesisers and drum machines grabbed me in the 80's, and that morphed into what became acid house. 
      The whole scene inspired me - I was collecting records, listening to pirate radio, going to warehouse parties and clubs, and couldn't get enough of this incredible new sound. 
      I used to make mixtapes with my friend - all my 12's on one side, and all hers on the other -so I guess the natural progression was to start DJing. 
       
       
      What can we expect from your sets in Australia this year? Will you be getting out some of the classics, focusing on new content or both?
      I'll be playing a mixture of pretty upfront music as well as some of the classics, and special edits of Faithless material - I have a weekly global radio show " Sister Bliss in Session " - and that really keeps me on top of new releases - I like to look forward musically, as there is so much great music out there, as well as bringing the crowd pleasers! 
       
       
      You’ve been referred to as the “musical engine” of Faithless.  What can you tell us about the process you go through when creating new tracks?
      Its never just one process - for me it could be anything from playing around with a chord sequence, to a melody, or vocal, to how the drums inspire me… every day is different - but I can't write without a good bass sound! Once the rough ideas are down, then its always a process of refining it, maybe working with a vocalist if it feels like it needs a vocal, sometimes playing with it for months! - and then eventually road testing it in my DJ sets. 
       
       
      What's happening on the production front for you currently?
      We are working on a new Faithless album due to be released in 2019 so thats keeping  me busy!
       
       
      How do you feel becoming a mother affected your music career?
      I think its mainly affected the amount of touring I've been able to do - I've been very lucky in that my son was able to travel with me on some DJ tours and with Faithless until he started school. Now, I've had to be more selective about when I can tour  - if they are longer and don't work with school holidays it can be a logistic nightmare with childcare! 
      i have to be very organised with my time which can be tough- for example having spent years in studios until 4am - which is sometimes when the creative juices flow - is just not feasible now. 
      I think working mothers have a tough gig - especially when you're self employed - if you don't work there is no safety net whatsoever. 
      I don't think people realise that within dance music or DJing as a career, there is no maternity pay, no sick pay, no pension - it can be pretty precarious, especially for those just starting out. 
       
       
      If you had the power to change one thing in the electronic music scene, what would that be and why?
      I think awareness of the things I mentioned above is important - and recently there has been a bit more of a discussion around mental health which is helpful. 
      This scene has become a way of life for so many people - and as an industry happens to generate a huge amount of money globally - so respect and support is needed for those in our industry - not just the superstar DJ's and artists but all those who make their job possible. 
       
       
      What would be your most memorable gig to date?
      I've been very lucky to have had so many memorable gigs - most recently playing a festival in Sarajevo was very emotional for me - I'd never played there before - but before the show I was speaking to people about their experiences during the war when they were under siege - which was very powerful and humbling. 
      There were also bullet holes in many buildings - a stark reminder of the snipers that lined the streets so recently -I dont think we can't begin to imagine how terrifying it was being shot at on a daily basis, and how normal life was just impossible. 
      Its very rare I tear up during a DJ set - but the lyrics - especially of the Faithless music I played that night felt extra resonant - and extra urgent as many parts of the world seem to be plunging into a very hateful place!  
       
       
      What are your current top 3 records right now?
      Like most of the world top Oz boy Fisher's "Losing It" is a dance floor weapon,  The Chemical Borthers are back on form with " Free Yourself" and a lovely sunrise number called "Together" from R&D 
       
       
      Are there any artists that you would recommend our readers check out?
      Really liking Circle Sky, also a rapper called Gaika, and on the pop side loving Christine & the Queens. 
       
       
      Lastly, can you tell us some interesting or unusual story from your (over) 20 years of touring?  (Our readers are pretty open minded, so no need to hold back)
      There are plenty I could tell you but what goes on tour, stays on tour!

      Hi Kivah, thanks for taking the time to chat!  Where are you right now and what you been up to this month?
      After travelling for the last couple of months non stop, taking the plane literally ten times in one month, I finally am settled back in London and this month I am completely focused on my single release and preparing new songs.
       
      Can you tell us a bit, in your opinion, about the scene where you are located? It is conducive to the artistic/creative lifestyle?
      I think London is one of the best places in the world to be especially for the music and artistic/creative lifestyle. London is so diverse  - you can be in Shoreditch or Camden Town, which are so alternative, and then take a cab to Mayfair and in half an hour you are in a posh private members clubs with quite a mainstream  scene. I just love the diversity of London!
       
      How does it compare to Mallorca?
      Well there are definitely more opportunities in a big city rather than on a small island. Lots of chances to make great contacts, attend events nonstop, network with industry and non- industry people and most importantly the major  artists will be surely playing in London whereas there is no chance to see your favourite artists playing in Mallorca.
       

      What inspired you to get into music?
      I always loved singing. I can’t even remember when  it started. Funny enough my dad reminded me a couple of years ago that when I was like 7 years old I already put my hand in a fist pretending that it was  a mike and was singing and dancing like crazy. I didn’t remember that I just though it all started when I formed my band when I was 15 but seems like it comes from much earlier.
       
      You got in early, being the lead singer and co-founder of “The New Flesh” in your teens, can you tell us a bit about how that came about?
      My first boyfriend was a musician, he played the bass in another band. Then the band disbanded and he suggested that I was the  lead singer, so we formed The New Flesh (we were a bit gothic back then) and that’s how I became singer-songwriter.
       
      We heard you have even recorded tracks for Café Del Mar.  Is this true, and if so, can you tell us more?
      Yes I have been doing some chill out music in the past. I have co-written a song called “Nobody” with the DJ/Producer Luis Junior and recorded “Now We Are Free” the original soundtrack of the movie Gladiator in chill out version. These tracks have been featured in albums like Space Café, Cinema Lounge, Dome Ibiza as well as Luis Juniors album “Neibum” both distributed by Café del Mar.
       
       
      Do you remember what it felt to sing for the first time in front of a crowd? How did you feel, and how well did it go?
      I was excited and nervous at the same time but with the experience and professionalism of my fellow musicians I felt sheltered and everything went great and I ended up having a lot of fun!
       
      You’ve just released a massive tune with MOTi.  How did that come about?
      MOTi  heard my song and loved it! He said he wanted to do the remix! We thought this was a collaboration we couldn’t turn down and let him add his magic to the track and the rest was history as they say!
       
      I’m sure working with MOTi is probably up there, but what would be your biggest achievement in your music career so far?
      My biggest achievement  at the moment is with “All You Sexy Ladies” I think it’s the best record so far as well as setting up my own record label. I am a businesswoman and have set up various businesses in the past so when the opportunity arrived I thought let’s go for it!
       
      What do you personally consider to be the perceptive moments of your artistic career?
      When I decided to be brave and moved firstly to Madrid to continue my musical career on my own as all the other band members were too comfortable in Mallorca but I was always quite ambitious and wanted to achieve more. A whole new experience started there for me in a big city and then later on I have repeated the same change by moving to London chasing the same dream.
       
      You’ve done a lot of modelling and acting in your time, starting from a very young age.  Can you tell us any particular memorable moments in your modelling and acting career that will stick with you for the rest of your life?
      I have many memorable moments especially when shooting commercials but I think one of the proudest  is an eight page reportage in a very popular magazine in Spain called MAN not only because it was a great achievement but also because I have shot this with a dear photographer friend of mine who has passed away suddenly couple of years ago in his hotel room in Mexico. He was such a great photographer and that photo shoot session will be in my heart and memory forever.
       
      What do you listen to in your downtime?
      My taste in music is very eclectic but the last couple of years I have been listening a lot to The Weeknd, his voice just draws me in.
       
      And lastly, what words of wisdom would you pass on to those who are just starting out in the music industry?
      Always believe in yourself, don’t be put off what some people in the industry  tell you, you’re too fat, you’re too thin, you’re too young, you’re too old, your voice is not good enough and so on. When you are passionate about what you do with work, determination and focus you can achieve anything in life!
