Well we invited Simon Caldwell back for a second appearance at One Night Stand because he was so bloody exceptional the first time around, and we couldn’t resist doing the very same with Canyons after they utterly blew our minds at the warehouse last year. Quite seriously, it was one of the most amazing things we’ve ever witnessed.
In the time since then, the lads have dropped their stunning debut album, ‘Keep Your Dreams’, which the world received with open arms. They performed as a killer live act for the first time too, as if their musical credibility wasn’t high enough already. But although they’ve taken the live show on tour and delighted thousands (perhaps millions, or even billions!), back at the warehouse they’ll be doing what they’ve been doing so bloody well for years: exposing us to some ridiculous, impossible, magnificent records. They’re a truly unique force behind the decks and we’re pretty stoked to be having them back for an ALL NIGHT WOODSTOCK JAM.
Yes, the theme for this one is Woodstock. Come be carefree love-loving hippies with us and psych out to some mind melting music. We’re all one big happy dirty smokey family – minus the mud!
So this is how it happens: Canyons play from the moment the gates open (10pm) until the very end (??am) at a wonderful warehouse location which will be disclosed close to the party. It’s BYO, and you can snap up cheap presale tickets from Resident Advisor:
Whenever I hear this I always think back to the times I heard Simon Caldwell drop this one at Mad Racket on the wooden dancefloor at Marrckville Bowling Club Sydney, it has been a while since I been to one of their parties but they always deliverd with the music, one of the few parties still flying the flag for chicago & deep house sounds in Sydney.
Rockin’ Down The House (Toby Tobias & Hardway Bros Re-edit)
I also been hearing this re-edit around in mixes and on dancefloors a bit, remixed as part of the Trax Re-edited selection featuring edits by Greg Wilson, Leftside Wobble, Leo Zero, JD Twitch, Andy Blake, Swag, Ray Mang, Justin Harris, Neville Watson and more
Kicking off nice and early at 9pm with an extend FUNK & BOOGIE set by local BBOY DJ SAGE ONE who featured in the first podcast
Also the one & only DJ Hysteric — the perpetrator behind Melbourne’s legendary System electro parties up from Burn City to rock the decks with the Cold Crush Mob — that’s RETALI8, OSC-001 & Simon Caldwell, along with special guest boogie man Sage One: bboys b-ware!
You know the drill, old school vinyl mixing, dope cuts and ya’ll party freaks ripping up the dancefloor. 202 have a new sound system in too, it is fat and YOU KNOW Cold Crush gonna be rocking those bass-bins.
With this set I was trying to play a whole bunch of my favourite electro tunes, mainly focusing on newer tracks with a bit of an old school vibe, and trying to tie them in with a few classic oldies. It was mixed with the dancefloor in front of me, so I tried to keep it pretty beat-based, but managed to get some spacey vibes in there too. I love how this kind of music makes really abstract things funky. It’s like the machines are making the music themselves if the sounds and the feel all click together; it’s organic and artificial at the same time. Unfortunately I don’t get to play these tunes very much any more (the complete rape of the word ‘electro’ hasn’t helped) so it was fun to drop them at Cold Crush. Hopefully you enjoy the mix and can have a little body-pop to it.

Cold Crushin’ Mixes is back with a slamming electro mix from Melbourne mix master and certified wax addict Hysteric, who has done some hardcore crate digging to pull some very obscure tracks for us! But don’t let the fact that you have probably never heard of most of the tracks put you off — as unknown as many of the tracks might be to all but the most knowledgeable of electro fans, our homeboy Hysteric has put together an absolute banger of a mix, covering a range of styles from bboy electro funk and electro rap, to synth pop, minimal electro, new wave and some very heavy hitting sludge electro tracks from The Hague. Ya’ll should know what to expect by now from Cold Crushin’ Mixes, so needless to say, shit is off the chain!
