Electronic: D.Tiffany is in the country and Piknic Elektronik host their season finale


Hope you’ve managed to pull yourself together after whatever you did over the monstrous long weekend because we’ve got another bunch of incredible parties happening this week. On Friday April 6, much-loved Melbourne label Butter Sessions are throwing a party for elusive local producer Mosam Howieson, who’s launching a 12”. A purveyor of deep rhythmic house and hypnotic techno, rumour has it his live set at the Domestic Documents compilation launch a few months ago was something else. Backing him up is Roza Terenzi, who can seemingly do no wrong. With recent releases on CC Disco’s First Light compilation and a joint EP with Vancouver’s DJ Zozi on new label Planet Euphorique, 2018 is looking like Terenzi’s year. Furious Frank rounds out the lineup when it all goes down at Hugs&Kisses from 10pm. No further word on the future of the venue as the building is sold, yet seems to be business as usual for the moment. 


On Saturday the aforementioned DJ Zozi AKA D.Tiffany is in the country (although I’m semi-convinced she hasn’t left for a couple of years) and is playing four hours back-to-back with Roza Terenzi. The party is a Plastic Dreams and Le Fag joint throwdown with Simona Castricum and Jess Zammit also on board. It’s going down at The Sub Club.


Another ripper back-to-back sesh is happening at Lounge on Saturday as Lucid hosts Sleep D and Toni Yotzi together for an extended closing set. No doubt riding high from recently supporting The Black Madonna and seducing the ‘Sup at Golden Plains Festival, Yotzi’s another selector who’s having a smashing year. Joining them is Lauren Hansom down from Sydney, Interstellar Fugitives and residents 6am At The Garage.


On Sunday, the final rays of summer are being torn from us as Piknic Elektronik turns it up for their season finale. On show is a pretty bonkers array of veterans and newbies, both local and international. UK producer George FitzGerald heads up the line-up with veteran NYC  DJ/producer Fred P, Finnish selector Yotto and New South Wales beat maker Willaris. K setting the scene for an eclectic day of music. Willaris. K was one of my favourite newcomers of 2017 with tracks like ‘Alchemy’ demonstrating a cinematic and emotive take on dance music that quickly got him thrust onto the festival circuit over summer. Fred P has one of the nicest sounds in house music, fusing a deep-soul feel with the traditional four to the floor. Local selectors Human Movement, Toni Yotzi, Matt Radovich, Ben Cromack, Caine Sinclair, ANYO and MzRizk round out what’s no doubt gonna be a big day. Kicks off at 2pm at Sidney Myer Music Bowl.
