So this week has seen a shitload of festivals announce their lineups, and there is some very tasty electronic talent coming our way. My picks? If you’re planning on heading to the Meredith Music Festival then do not miss out on Mount Liberation Unlimited and Ben UFO. If you’re more of a Strawberry Fields kinda guy/gal then you’re going to want...

For those following the Ibiza circuit – disgraced producer/DJ Ten Walls was removed from the Circoloco lineup following intense backlash after his inclusion. For those who have been living under a rock, the Lithuanian went on a vitriolic rant about homosexuals last year (cos, y’know, it’s not like the house and techno scene was formed from queer...

We’re neck deep in European summer which means almost no electronic acts want to even consider coming via Australia due to our god-awful weather and the fact that they can make x10 $ over there (but really who knows after Brexit?). Even if they did fancy coming Down Under the promoters that have the contacts are too busy focusing on their food-...

Their Colt EP from 2013 is still all-time, with the title track one of the best...

Did y’all miss out on tickets to the sold-out Andhim gig at Brown Alley this Friday? Good news: they’ll be playing at encore show at the Railway Hotel on Sunday June 12. Ol’ mate Boogs is also playing a four-hour set, with other support coming from Damon Walsh, Radiator and Cassettes for Kids. I’d make a lame joke about you needing to take...
