JIMMY POSTERS (the [box], SYDNEY)
What happened to the music?
What happened to the funk?
What happened to the techno?
What happened to the underground?
Inspired by early tapes of Sasha, Carl Cox, Derrick Carter and Carl Craig, Jimmy started DJing in the mid 90’s. After moving to Manchester in early 2000 James spent large part of his time out clubbing at nights such as the north of England’s house mecca Angel Deelite and legendary Sankey’s Soaps. It was the latter with residents, Krysko and Gregg Vickers that Posters got a taste for dark dirty clubs where there was not much more than a strobe, a f**k off sound system and a room full of ravers.
Leaving Manchester behind for the shores of Sydney, James was inspired by deep house heads such as Jimpster, Ame and H-Foundation, as well as the techier sounds of producers such as John Tejada, DJ T, and Spirit Catcher. Through this he developed the style he is playing today.
With as much love for polka, trance and shoegaze as for tech house, Jimmy's sets are varied, spanning through warm pads of deep house to heads down techno, although describes his sound as driving tech, and twisted glitched up electronica, with the odd siren thrown in the mix for good measure.
Cutting his teeth in clubs that had the same weekly residents, Posters is one of the few DJs that’s as happy to build the groove in a warm up set as he is dropping peak-time bullets later on in the night. Working across 3 decks, dropping accapellas and fx tracks, his style is bleeding edge underground without ever losing site of the dancefloor.
Following his first set in the back room, Jimmy's been a regular fixture at Sydney's leading techno night Lost Baggage, throwing his support for Djs such as Popof, Marc Houle & Gaiser, Shonky and Guy Gerber. As well as working with the big names, Jimmy also keeps supporting the Sydney underground, running [THE BOX] a monthly night promoting Australian locals.

ARAM CHAPERS (honkytonks, MELB)
Aram has avoided the spotlight in the years gone by. He’s not one to talk about his music, but has instead decided to focus entirely on the craft of creating something special from the records he finds and plays. Aram’s style is hard to pin down, but those around him say it sits somewhere between deep house and techno. In his own words he sums it up as "music with emotion."
Over the years, Aram has held residencies at Australia’s most important clubs and parties. In Melbourne he has played all over including Honkytonks, Revolver, Clandestine, Blow Your Own Way, Pretty Simple and festivals like Hot BBQ, Summerdayze and Sunshine People. In Sydney at Lost Baggage, Bread & Butter at Ladylux and Spice. On the Gold Coast at Elsewhere, Empire in Brisbane and Sugar in Adelaide. He has also made it as far a field as Europe, to play in Spain and at the Nouveau Casino in Paris.
Aram’s residency at Honkytonks, the now extinct Melbourne nightspot voted Top 5 clubs in the world by New York's V Magazine, has been his greatest accolade so far. The club’s open-minded attitude allowed him to explore and refine his hypnotic sound and play many of his individual support sets with guest including Damian Lazarus, Joris Voorn, Mathew Jonson, Matthew Dear, Tim Paris, Aril Brikha, Claude Von Stroke, Jef K, Oliver Hunterman and Rex the Dog to name a few. He also compiled and mixed the Honkytonks compilation titled ‘Honkytonks: The Last Dance’, which made its way into all good record stores.
And yet Aram still feels this is all just the beginning, as his working on productions, just started a new weekly residency at Sorry Grandma! in Melbourne and planning another tour through Europe.
