Twisted Audio residents play the Tetris Studios 4th Bday

Posted: Thursday, August 29th, 2013




7th of September – 6pm till 1am @ Rubix venue (36 Phoenix street Brunswick)

4 years ago, a girl called Tanz walked into an empty warehouse in Brunswick with a vision to create a world that existed beyond the rusty gates of the ‘real’ world. A world that inspired people to dream big and provided the tools to morph those dreams into their reality. She saw a world were people traded skills instead of money and success was measured by smiles not bank accounts. A world where everyone who respected and contributed to the cause felt at home.

On the 1st of September 2009, she was given the keys and this world was created, she named it TETRIS. She saw all the people and projects as blocks of different colours and different shapes that would come together, all falling perfectly into place, connecting with each other creating stronger projects, producing high quality music and art that represented the florescent back streets of Melbourne, the anti government mind state our generation adorns and the awakening of self sustainability.

In just 4 years Tetris has become a staple in the Melbourne music and arts scene, connecting thousands of people and has created a number of well respected and supported projects for youth, up and coming talent and established artists.

To celebrate our 4th birthday, we’re inviting all our past resident artists, volunteers, crew members, extended music and arts family as well as all the people who haven’t yet had the Tetris experience to join us in doing what we do best… PARTAY!!! and of course shoot hoops, eat burgers, sk8 the mini ramp and have a burn on our brand new ping pong table while our favourite family dj’s and mc’s keep the vibes flowing.

The crew will be chilln at Tetris Studios Brunswick/Rubix Brunswick from 6pm if you wanna come down early for hangs, it’s $10 to get in after 9pm.


Twisted Audio residents support Sigma (Breakbeat Kaos, UK)

Posted: Saturday, August 10th, 2013


With an massive artillery of extra sound and lighting, we return to Brown Alley for a unique experience hosted by of the world’s most renowned Drum & Bass producers. Fresh off the back of their ‘Night & Day EP’ and a series of chart topping remixes, SIGMA will undoubtedly bring the good vibes as we dance the night away!

SIGMA (Breakbeat Kaos: UK)

Friday 30th of August @ Brown Alley (585 Lonsdale street, CBD Melbourne)

Supported by a HUGE local lineup..

Soulflex & JFK
Rick Dirk
Dirty Gipsy
Cam Broadie



Cameron Edwards and Joe Lenzie aka Sigma, have been making their presence felt on the drum and bass scene since 2007. From early releases on labels such as Charge and Viper Recordings, to the seminal All Blue on Zinc’s Bingo imprint (one of DNBA’s most downloaded tracks ever), the boys stepped up to the big time with serious dancefloor killers Paint It Black and the anthem El Presidente VIP.

With respect now gained with the scene as producers and highly sought after DJs, Sigma continue working to maximise their profile within the realms of D&B and beyond it. Highlights include their featured minimix for Annie Mac on Radio One, squeezing in 35 tracks in five minutes as well as remix work for artists such as Top Cat on Special Dedication, Ms Dynamite, and grime stalwart Skepta on Rescue Me (300,000 plays and counting). In amongst all the music and DJ gigs the guys found time to start their own label, Life Recordings, with debut release El Presidente VIP/ Something Special going on to be Nu-Urban’s highest selling release of 2009. They were also awarded Best Breakthrough DJs at the Drum & Bass Arena awards. A great way to cap off a successful year, and more recognition of Cam and Joe’s hard work and dedication to their craft.

With a new decade now here Sigma are intent on leaving their indelible mark etched permanently on the scene. Kicking off 2010 with Shut The Lights Off with Adam F and hip hop legend Redman, this is followed by their debut release for Breakbeat Kaos… The Stand Tall EP. Consisting of four tracks, it’s Sigma quality and diversity all the way through. From the dancefloor stylings of Original Sin’s remix of Front To Back and brain thumping anthem The Jungle to the more melodic vibes on Baltimore and the vocodered vox on Stronger, The Stand Tall EP covers all bases. Confirmation of this is shown by the fact three of the EPs four tracks feature on the Ministry of Sound compilation CD entitled Mixed…. By DJ Friction, along with Paint It Black VIP. To add to all of this is the exciting collaboration with BBK head honcho and D&B legend DJ Fresh on Cylon. An unadulterated stomper of the highest order, Cylon, supported by the likes of Andy C and Goldie, is the lead track from Fresh’s latest long player Kryptonite.

What else to look forward to from Sigma? Well, there’s more episodes of their Life Podcasts. Utilising this wide reaching medium as a platform to further showcase their and other artists talents, previous guests include Goldie, Original Sin, DJ Fresh, IC3 and The Nextmen. Also keep an eye out for Sigma’s video diary on You Tube.

‘Bro Safari aka Evol Intent this Saturday @ Brown Alley

Posted: Thursday, August 1st, 2013


Brown Alley is proud to present the next evolution of dance floor vibes, featuring one of world’s most renowned and genre defining artists. Making his debut appearance at an exclusive Melbourne show, this is…


Saturday 17th August – 10pm till late

Brown Alley (Corner of King & Lonsdale St)

Supported by Tomderson / Kurk Kokane / Marquee Moon / Bee Ampersand / Turnips

Strictly limited early bird tickets now available

Bro Safari is the alter-ego of DJ and producer, Knick. He’s already well-known and deeply established in the music scene as a result of his work with leading American Drum & Bass group Evol Intent. Not to mention, his wildly popular output as 1/2 of the genre-bending mash-up duo, Ludachrist.

While his production work spans the entire spectrum of bass music, Bro Safari has been relentless at pushing his unique take on the burgeoning Moombahton movement. As a result, Bro Safari is currently ushering in a new wave of listeners to the genre and he is set to be an early champion of this new scene.

With support from artists like Diplo, DJ Craze, Knife Party and more, it’s becoming increasingly apparent that Bro Safari is someone to keep an eye on in 2012 and beyond.
