This week saw the first announcements of two new Victorian multi-day festivals, Pitch Music & Arts Festival and Babylon Festival. To the dismay of many, both festivals occur on the same weekend - as well as Golden Plains - Friday March 10 to Monday March 13. The Pitch lineup includes Italian hypnotic slow-burning techno maestro Donato Dozzy as well as...

Fancy a bit of Detroit techno? One of the biggest names in the game – Kevin Saunderson – is coming our way. Alongside Derrick May and Juan Atkins, Saunderson is one of the ‘Belleville Three’ who are considered to be the pioneers and originators of techno. In recent times his own imprint KMS Records has been championing the next generation. Studio wise, expect...

Daniel Bortz will be making his way to town this weekend.

So here’s some utterly shitty news. Arguably one of Melbourne’s most (as much as I hate to use the word) iconic nightclubs, the Mercat Basement, will close early next year due to forthcoming re-development of the Queen Victoria Market precinct. For over three decades the Mercat Basement has been an imperative cornerstone of the Melbourne dance...

Hoooooomumma. Need a pick-me-up mix/video to get you through the day? Head to be-at.tv to watch all nine bloody hours of Carl Cox playing from start to finish for the final ever party of his 15-year residency at Space Ibiza, Music Is Revolution. Two things to take away from it: 1. Cox is forever one of the best all-rounder DJs in the game. 2....

Sad news to start this week: Don Buchla, the American engineer and synthesiser pioneer, has died at age 79. A man who began his career in 1963 with the release of the modular synth Buchla Series 100 (commissioned by Morton Subotnick and Ramon Sender), his legacy within electronic music in undeniable, with his machines fuelling the output of the...

Well, there you have it. London have gone and taken a page out of Mike Baird’s book and shut down one of the greatest clubs in the world, fabric. There’s been a huge outpouring of grief from the global electronic music community, but perhaps it was best put by drum and bass royalty Goldie: "I’m wondering whether or not the likes of me, the likes...

Despite the fact that their logo looks like it was made by a ten-year-old in Microsoft Paint, Circoloco throw some pretty damn good parties. Based in Ibiza, the internationally touring brand tends to swing by Australia when summer heats up Down Under, and this year is no different. One of their strongest Australian lineups thus far, the 2016...

Well hello there. Meet the newest festival on the Australian summer calendar: Tell No Tales. Run by the Hardware crew, the event is “inspired by the European summer” – whatever that means. Marketing/promo bullshit aside, the lineup speaks for itself. Headlining will be minimal techno maverick Ricardo Villalobos (let’s hope he doesn’t repeat the...
