Vivid Live Review: FCX, 10 Years of Future Classic - Sydney Opera House (29.05.15)

The two words I most closely associate with Aussie label Future Classic would be 'consistency' and 'reinvention'. Over the past decade FC have remained one of the most consistent go-to bodies for quality electronica based off of their passion and discerning ear for refreshing, progressive productions and talent. What's more is that they constantly reinvent not only themselves, but the scene around them, and are responsible for the big mark Australian electronica has made and continues to make around the globe. We always knew that it was going to be a big deal when they hit the landmark 10 year anniversary.

Festival Review: Listen Out - Royal Botanic Gardens, Melbourne (04.10.14)

Melbourne turned on the goods for the second last leg of Listen Out on Saturday. The sunshine bought out winning attitudes and a veritable goodie bag of trendy headwear. There was a static vim in the air that kept my head darting around at the seemingly endless wave of bucket hats and dreamily kept facial hair. The notable lineup inflicted a world of pain for this punter, in that I had to decide upon which acts to sacrifice for the greater satisfaction of my ears. Dense bass lines, hip cranking rhythms and banging samples had Listen Out goers is a whirr.

Festival Review: Listen Out - Ozone Reserve, Perth (28.09.14)

When Fuzzy promotions first announced a new boutique EDM festival was to be replacing Parklife, my stomach sank with dismay. Parklife had given the fondest memories and still sits in my heart as being my favourite festival experience. Yet walking up to the gates of Listen Out I was filled with excitement, the bill held some damn decent names, the rain had mostly held off, and I knew within seconds it still boasted that same indescribable atmosphere as its predecessor.
