This is news that a lot of you have been waiting for. We have secured LATE NITE TUFF GUY (aka DJ HMC) for an ALL NIGHT ROID RAVE at our One Night Stand in August. One of Australia’s greatest disco, house and techno treasures, mister Carmelo Bianchetti will at long last be hopping on a plane in Adelaide to come and delight us at one of our favourite venues – Civic Underground. One of Australia’s best on one of the best sound systems! YEAH!
HMC first made his mark in the early ’80s, when he was one of the first DJs in the country to spin Chicago house and Detroit techno. He made his production debut back in 1991 with the 100% Juice EP on Juice Records, Australia’s first techno label. In 1995 he released "Phreakin’" as the first twelve-inch on Dirty House Records, which went on to become an international hit and put Adelaide on the world map as what people were calling the "Aussie Detroit". All of this spells one thing: PIONEER. It’s not often people can legitimately be labelled "The Godfather" of something, but not many people will dispute the title being handed to HMC when it comes to Australian techno.
In recent years, Bianchetti has made a prolific return to producing, both as HMC and under the moniker Late Nite Tuff Guy. "I Get Deeper" had a truly massive impact all over the world, and his string of amazing releases on disco edits imprint Dessert Island Discs indicates that he’s back with a vengeance and a newfound excitement for sharing the music he’s passionate about. And what better arena to do that than at a Picnic One Night Stand? LNTG will be taking us on a journey from the moment the doors open until we eventually get dragged out into the unfortunate dawn light.
We need to see you all dressed up Roid Rave style, so start your pump regime and get those juicy muscles bulging…Don your most revealing gym gear and show us your guns!
I was introduced to Alphatown collective many years back when the duo was warming up for Derrick May‘s & Biz-E on a Wednesday night at Gas Nightclub. From memory their set that night was very drum machine driven dance floor orientated techno. There sound in the studio and live shows have really emerged to incorporate the deeper & melodic shades of electronic music over the years & it inspirational to see quality music getting played and made so close to home.
Check out this Deep Tribal Inspired House & Techno set.
It was Friday the 13th and Mercury, Venus, Mars and Jupiter were in alignment. In keeping with the general ‘vibe’ we combined some Vorheesian tones with a cameo appearance from Caleban, an extra-dimensional being who recently made our acquaintance. Enjoy!
