SURROUND YOUR SENSES - A night of lush, feel-good electronica

From Dunedin New Zealand, a hotbed of musical creativity, comes HUMAN CONFUSION... the perfect mix of dance-worthy grooves and rich melodies. The strong, velvety vocals of Miriam Leslie are mixed with lush electronica produced by Elenor Rayner. They love a stonkin’ bass and the joy they get from performing their creations is hard not to catch. Everybody's talking about them.

DANDELION WINE are a Melbourne based ethereal electro-medieval band that combine old world instruments such as lute, dulcimer and bell cittern with electronic beats and waves of textured guitars. Their numerous international tours have included shows at some of the biggest alternative festivals in Europe, along with castles, clubs and Cold War bunkers. For this show they will be playing songs from their forthcoming album "Le Cœur," as well as reaching back to some hidden gems from their early releases on Germany's Ars Musica Diffundére/Black Rain label that haven't been played live in many years.

ITALIANZ make music for Saturday afternoons; the perfect accompaniment to antipasto platters, mascarpone figs, $8 flagons of Sangiovese from Mediterranean Wholesalers and the offcut pieces of cacciatore salami purchased at the end of the day from King & Godfree (pre-renovation). As for the actual music, three words: Cocteau Twin Peakz.

D'Rad MC, a Hip Hop artist from Aotearoa now based in Melbourne, is an unapologetic lyrical beast with an ill freestyle and formidable pen game. D’Rad defines his style as complex lyrical bars over high energy beats. D. has cut his teeth in the Hip Hop underground spitting raw aggressive flows covering philosophical subject matter drawing from experiences as a travelling writer and rapper.
