Dirtyphonics (Live) + Culture Shock + Qemists – 8th of October @ Geddes LoungePosted: Sunday, October 2nd, 2011
Twisted Audio & Voltage are proud to present one of our biggest Drum n Bass lineups EVER featuring….
DIRTYPHONICS LIVE (Audio Porn Records, FRA)
CULTURE SHOCK (RAM Records, UK)
THE QEMISTS (Ninja Tune, UK)
ATTENTION ALL!! As a result of misconduct by the original venue management which unfortunately is unresolvable, we have had to move the party to another location.
Luckily this change is better for everyone as the new venue is easier to get to (2 mins from Southern Cross Station), drinks will be cheaper and the new club has a better vibe to boot.
Be warned though our limit on numbers is now a lot less so this WILL sell out!! If you haven’t secured your place yet, be sure to jump online and get your tickets!
Again we must stress due to a lower venue capacity this will sell out! This is going to be a party you won’t want to miss.
The Twisted Audio show is back and ready take you on a fantastic voyage on board the Dirty French Connection!
Hit the dance floor in our exclusive club while our esteemed entertainers intoxicate you with some of the biggest beats and heaviest basslines they have to offer. You will rediscover what an event is supposed to be like when you get swept up in the extravaganza of an evening full of live entertainment and strange beautiful people, all dripping with French flair! A truly legendary selection of artists will grace the stage and spice up the evening whilst dishing out candy for the eyes, ears and for the soul.
Get on board for this grand voyage around the world of bass and discover the wonders and treasures this planet has to offer.
It is the time to bust out your filthiest French moustaches and sexiest maid uniforms! We want to see more French people than at a croissant eating competition!!
Will you be lucky enough to get your hands on this round trip ticket before their all sold?

DIRTYOHONICS – LIVE
Innovating in several styles of electronic music and bringing a live PA recognized as one of the most energetic and creative to be seen, Dirtyphonics is now a worldwide phenomenon that you cannot ignore.
With an incredible production level, a unique way to mix and blend different genres (electro, drum and bass, dubstep, hip hop) and a best newcomers producers award under their belt, Dirtyphonics is with no doubt one of the most exciting bands in today’s electronic scene.
“If you’ve seen these five French originators live, you have witnessed the future of live drum & bass performance that leaves competitors in the dust.” Knowledge Magazine
Playte, Capskod, Pitch In, Pho and MC Youthstar started travelling the world in 2006 with their in- comparable live act, combining the efficiency of a DJ set to the spirit and energy of a rock concert. In 2008, the band takes a new scope when
French Fuck gets signed to Shimon’s label (AudioPorn). Immediately after its release, the 12″ climbs the charts to reach the first place and stays number one for a couple of weeks.
“In this day and age and with how far we’ve come with music, it’s hard to do something new and that’s exactly what they’d done right from the start.” Shimon
Quickly after, comes out a series of 12″s, appearing systematically in the top 10 charts. Quarks and it’s audacious rhythm pattern caused a revolution in drum and bass and has inspired lots of producers. On the same EP (The Quarks EP) the band shows their versatility (and their ease to work with singers) in The secret, with MC Tali. Soon after, Vandals and its electro switch lights every dancefloor around the world on fire…
Over a very short period of time, Dirtyphonics tracks are played by the world’s famous DJs of the electronic music scene: Pete Tong, Annie Mac, Andy C, Chase & Status, Pendulum, Vicarious Bliss, Marky, Dj Hype, Kissy Sell Out, Annie Nightingale.
All at the same time, the band keeps to intensively tour the world from trendy clubs to huge festivals (Electric Daisy Carnival, Plages Electroniques, Solidays, Slamming Vinyl, Starscape, USC events, Les Nuits ZebrŽ es, Summer Festival, Audioriver, Together As One, Nordik Impact, Arena, Government, Metrocity, Brixton Academy, Pirate StationÉ) and in the summer 2010, moved to Los Angeles for their acclaimed ‘French Do It Better’ tour around the USA and Canada.
During this tour, the band starts writing its long await- ed debut album while working on a string of remixes such as Shockone’s ‘Polygon’ , the Bloody Beetroots famous ‘Warp’ 1977, Nero’s ‘Me and you’ , Benny Benassi’s E-man …
“Parisian crew Dirtyphonics are bucking the trend with a tranche of heavyweight music and an incendiary live show.” Mixmag
The future looks bright and busy both in the studio and on the road, as Dirtyphonics will tour more and more in 2011 and are working days in, days out on genre defying music.
“Dirtyphonics have in the past year created some of the most boundary pushing, genre hopping records in dance music”
CULTURE SHOCK [RAM RECORDS, UK]
James’ first release happened thanks to a hook up with Dom Angus (Dom & Roland) though their parents who are friends and colleagues. The result was the 2004 ‘Vega EP’ on Moving Shadow. It was well received but unfortunately the seminal label stopped releasing music and it was another two years before James found another home with the legendary Ram Records.
Impressed by the production skills displayed on the Vega EP, Andy C followed the progress of the young producer and ended up signing him to his label, with the first track ‘The Bypass’ one of Optical’s favourite tunes – appearing on 2006′s Dimension EP and getting tongues wagging on the scene.
With signing Culture shock to its prestigious stable, Ram are nurturing yet another talent destined to expend the boundaries of the scene.
THE QEMISTS [NINJA TUNE, UK]
The Qemists are, in many ways, something of a Qonundrum. Theyre rock fans seduced by the dancefloor, dance fans equally happy playing live instruments or building tracks on the computer, Drum & Bass aficionados who believe their hurtling breakbeats sound best under muscular metallic riffs.
Their debut album, 2009s Join The Q, balanced Junglist-Metal monsters like Stompbox and S.W.A.G., with wall-shaking Dancehall boomers like Dem Na Like Me, with a diverse guest-list including ex-Faith No More frontman Mike Patton, Grime legend Wiley and Drum & Bass chanteuse Jenna G.
