CIRCUIT BENT (ADAPTED RECORDS)

Eli and Jesse were manufactured inside the bowels of a top secret laboratory for the purpose of being super soldiers hell bent on world domination. After the mad scientists realized the true nature of the monsters they had created they tried to destroy the foul creatures they had spawned but were overwhelmed by the sonic insanity and bled to death from their ears. To this day the location of Eli and Jess is unknown, but their presence on the internet is evidence that the world is still not safe from the global menace lurking around the corner.

THE MOLLUSK (OMELETTE RECORDS)

Mollusk aka Shane Vigo started back in 2007 as a solo project. “Breaking convention” is Mollusk’s middle name, constantly pushing forward to create a new and interesting sound. These include recordings of a spray can underwater for “synth’s”, circuit bending toys for “bass lines” and wet towels thrown at a brick wall for “snare’s”, among hundreds of other hair brain & fun ideas to create sound art. After recording these sounds, a select few are re-worked in the studio to become huge bass line, synthesis, percussion and other quirky re-creations designed to blow the minds of punters at The Mollusk’s legendary live sets.
Those prepared to dive into the dance floor will certainly get much more than they bargain for. Swimming though a mix of luscious sound scapes mixed with grinding bass lines and topped with a mix of funk, glitch and wobble.

cTRIX (LIVE AMIGA 500, GAMEBOY, GP2X)

More retro technology than you can poke a POKE command at, cTrix has been rocking the Commodore Amiga since 1993 writing bouncy techno, funky beats, power synth and cheaky jungle. His secret weapon is a box of floppies and a modified version of the classic Protracker. He is also known for rocking a party using nothing but a 1980′s era Gameboy – so while we can’t tell you exactly what is going to happen, we can guarantee it’ll be a fun time.

BLACKMAGE [LIVE AV MASHUP + CHIPHOP/8 BIT DUBSTEP]

Hacked gameboys, MIDI sync’d NES consoles, Xbox Kinect + webcams triggering an ADHD visual feed consisting of open source/modded/bendy/chip/h4xed enthusiasm.

DYZLEXIC CM + LICKWEED (TWISTED AUDIO)

Dyzlexic is an MC that prides himself on his ability to amp up a crowd and keep the party moving without being self-indulgent.
From rapid-fire double time rhymes to flowing lyrical verses and melodic hooks with call and responses he has a style to suit every rhythm.

Recently stepping into the Melbourne Dubstep and DnB scenes he is now making a name for himself having MCed for the likes of Drumsound & Bassline Smith, Excision, Camo & Krooked, Futurebound, B-Complex, SPL, 12th Planet and Droid Sector.

Dj Lickweed is a DnB/Breaks/Glitch Hop DJ originally from Israel and now based out of Melbourne, Australia.

First started DJing in 2003 and was mainly involved in the Hip-Hop / Turntabilisim scene back in Israel.
In 2004 he was first exposed to the underground DnB & Breakbeat scene and fell in love with the sound, vibe and the world that is Broken Beat.

Lickweed has played alongside numerous artists such as Andy C, Stanton Warriors, A Skills, DJ Marky, Scratch Perverts, Excision, Mampi Swift, Camo & Krooked, Crissy Criss, Drumsound & Bassline Smith, Loadstar, Kenny Ken, Aphrodite, Cyantific and many more.

Expect bass heavy banging tunes, fast mixing sprinkled with some beat juggling and scratching skills when this bad-boy jumps on the wheels of steel.

SLUDGE JUNKIES (HOPSKOTCH RECS)

Conjured by the treacherous Professor Muck in the underground sewers of a nuclear power plant, these perverse creatures, who we humans call “Chris” and “Ariel” draw you deep into their spell with bowel infecting basslines, twisted melodies and obscene and raunchy samples.

With disturbing yet entertaining qualities, the sludge they produce in their live shows takes many, many showers to wash off. So be careful when tasting the sludge, as their powers grow so to do the numbers of Sludge Junkies junkies.

WYLDCARD + BELLZ (HOPSKOTCH RECS)

Wyldcard is Sean Bradney-George, rapper and producer residing in Melbourne. Gaining momentum from his recent self-released “Insane Thoughts” EP, attention is building around the country for this young chap. With fast, witty and conscious lyricism combined with unique bass heavy and quirky production, Wyldcard will make you think and dance simultaneously.

2013 sees an exciting horizon for this project, with an album of collaborations set for release through Hopskotch records very soon. I also put on nights in Melbourne fairly regularly, including a series at My Aeon called “Epic Concoction”. Wyldcard is know regularly to play with producer Gunk, and has performed and collaborated with such acts as Editor, Dysphemic and Miss Eliza, Blatwax and Kalya Skintilla, to name a few out of an ever-expanding list of creative combinations.
