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!

Motorcitysoul & The Revenge In Sydney, Sat 23rd May 2009



TICKETS ON SALE @ Resident Advisor

Sydney collective CO-OP, are bringing two highly acclaimed
international guest artists together in the city.
Matthias Vogt, founder of German kings of electronic House
Motorcitysoul, & Graeme Clark, AKA the mastermind behind the UK’s
re-edit and future Disco royalty The Revenge, will be gracing the DJ
booths (note plural) of a Sydney basement venue for the inaugural CO-OP
shakedown armed, no doubt, with good haircuts and great music (both
equally important, lets be honest). Oh, and they’ll be playing two sets
each on the night to showcase the different flavours of their sound –
one more trademark in the main room and one more ‘eclectric’ in the back
room. Both on systems provided with love by revered audiophiles
Funktion-One. Vive la difference…


Matthias Vogt started his Motorcitysoul project back in 2003 and has
released quality deep House records over the past few years under this
alias in partnership with Christian ‘C-Rock’ Rindermann. Original
productions have found homes on some of the world’s best electronic
labels including Freerange, Simple and Stir 15, with latest album
Technique‘ released on Will Saul‘s imprint in 2008. On the remix front,
heavyweights Phonique, Dirt Crew and Black Science Orchestra, to mention
a few, have all been blessed with the Motorcitysoul touch. A truly
talented musician as well as DJ and producer, Vogt is acclaimed
internationally for his Jazz outings and is behind the revered re:jazz!
album series. Matthias has played all over the world but is best known
behind the decks for the residency Motorcitysoul hold at Sven Vath’s
legendary Cocoon club in Frankfurt.


Graeme Clark has been producing and playing music for over 15 years and
is currently creating a stir under his latest moniker The Revenge. He
co-runs the label Five20East, which provides a home for his original
tracks as The Revenge, and also releases DJ-only edits for L.E.S.S.
Productions. Many of the cream of the international DJ community are
fans of The Revenge’s seamless blend of deep Disco and pitched-down
House, including Todd Terje, Tim Sweeney, The Unabombers and Radio
Slave. Clark’s engineering experience is also in demand, with
forthcoming work including projects for Mark E and Jisco, and he
produces under a number of collaborative aliases including OOFT! and 6th
Borough Project. In 2009 The Revenge will boast releases on Graeme’s new
vinyl only label Instruments of Rapture and Five20East, Jimpster’s new
imprint and Raoul Galloway from Faith’s label, plus remix work for
Phonica among others.

CO-OP represents the meeting of several not altogether proficient minds
who have decided, in their sometimes questionable but generally well
informed wisdom, that what Sydney really needs right now is a good
old-fashioned, rough around the edges party, where that music stuff and
everything that makes and breaks it is really important and everything
else is, well, not. The purveyors of other not-too-shit nights A Disco
Stole My Baby and Better Days have become cosy (maybe even getting to
second base, but that’s just a scurrilous rumour) and intend to program,
produce, promote and pimp, some pretty ridiculous (as in good) house
party style events in someone else’s manor. The fundamentals are simple
– outstanding and exclusive DJ talent playing outstanding and exclusive
music on a fuck-off sound-system in a suitably dark and dancer-friendly
venue. Oh, and they won’t be stealing your wallet in a corner either
(metaphorically speaking). They’re not planning on starting an empire,
but know there are others that worship at the alter of deep Disco and
even deeper House who would prefer something laced with a little more
love than your typical nightclub experience…
