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.

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...

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...

Big ups to the local collective Thick as Thieves are due. As y’all probably know, the dons are often throwing charity gigs at Revolver Upstairs to raise money for The Fred Hollows Foundation, hosting encore sessions from their international touring artists all to help the blind.

Sweet merciful Jesus – praise the house, techno and disco gods. Resident Advisor have outdone themselves with the 530th incarnation of their podcast series, serving up nine freakin’ hours of Motor City Drum Ensemble going back-to-back with Jeremy Underground, recorded live from Offenbach's seminal club Robert Johnson. It’s 638MB of pure bliss....

Diss tracks are back in the house world? You better believe it. Earlier this month contributing editor for Pitchfork Philip Sherburne penned a piece that discussed the motives of electronic labels that solely releases records on vinyl – rhetorically asking if it’s elitist and perhaps promotes exclusivity. One of the interviewees for the piece,...

 Oh my fucking god Larry Heard is coming to Melbourne. For the very first time Mr. Fingers himself has been booked in for a sojourn Down Under. To make it even more exciting, this all comes after a 12-year hiatus from performing, and the Melbourne show will be just his second live performance since announcing his return to the stage. To be...

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...
