Eat Musik 25th Sep. review
Wow massive night on friday/sunday morning. Eat Musik was went down with a bang despite the fact that it was only at half capacity but everywhere was a little empty last night in the cross and Zuology and Lets Play DJs played a killer closing set keeping the place pumping till 6am...
Robbie Lowe played an all vinyl set spanning 90s techno to classic house tunes which really was in perfect reflection of the theme of the night. A great 'classics' set by one of Sydney's best and well respected DJ/Composer. Made me feel like I was clubbing in the 90s! Afterwards he was chilling around the bunker where we got talking on the current state of the scene. Robbie seems to think that its hit saturation point in terms of all the festivals hitting Sydney over the next few months. Fair enough with advent of Stereosonic, Global Gathering, Godskitchen, Transmission and Parklife all within weeks of each other its not hard to see that perhaps they will not all sell out or at least hit reasonalbe capacity. However I personally love it and think Sydney easily has enough people into different types of music to fill these festivals but as usual only time will tell. To be honest Im very much looking foward to Global Gathering and will Parklife has already sold out!
Speaking of DJs Mortlock, who was also milling around that night and playing the closing set, revealed some great news! The underground Sydney composer/DJ is now signed to Long Distance Recordings, which is the record label belonging to who else but MDX (Mark Dynamix). The label represents the very healthy 'Berlin connection' between Sydney and the techno capital of the world with apparently many a German artists and aussies now signed. Last I heard Oliver Koletzki also got signed while on his recent tour of Australia! with remixes out soon! (first ep is already on beatport)
