Million Dollar Pony Club
- Saturday 18 September Workers Club, Brunswick
- Membership (entry): $15 door, $10 presale
PASSERINE– one classy experiment in style-blending that has culminated in an equal part mix of classic break-beats, contemporary electro-funk, and nu-disco grooves. Passerine is Phoebe Dubar (vocalist & viola), Alex Gooding (drums) and Ben Murphy (production).
Kids At Midnight– the solo project of Singer/Producer/DJ Jane Elizabeth Hanley, is lush and twinkly indie synth production that Richard Kingsmill (Tripe J) described as ‘a fluffy cloud with lots of tears in it’. KAM stamps her unique melancholic perspective on the Indie electronica soundsphere.
Back Back Forward Punch– born from a mutual passion for indulgent nu disco beats, bouncy future pop and strong sassy vocals; Laura Boland (vocals) and Andy Liddell (keys & production), have religiously produced niche electronic anthems that will tick all your fun boxes. “Stankin’ beats m8” – Lewi McKirdy (Triple J).
Rachel by the Stream– future-pop featuring the combined powers of Rachel Razelle (vocalist/multi-instrumentalist/loop artist) and Mattriks (MC/Producer), RBTS deliver a high-octane live show demonstrating a seriously seamless blend of live looping with samples, live instrumentation, rootsy vocals and dubbed out fx: “100% fresh” Discobelle.
