Killer is back! Having hosted some of the most eclectic electronic artists across a range of venues in recent years, Killer lands at the Palace Theatre this NYE to welcome the second decade of the third millennium with a bang. Ensuring that 2010 is greeted with appropriate revelry are mash-up maestros 2ManyDJs (Belgium), bringing their 2ManyDjs Live tour to our shores for the very first time and performing their only live show in Melbourne, supported by The Proxy (Russia).
Alter egos of Soulwax brothers David and Stephen Dewaele, 2ManyDJs are one of the most innovative and exhilarating DJ acts of recent times.
As Soulwax, the Dewaele’s have released several albums, including Any Minute Now and Nite Versions, which spawned singles NY Excuse and E-Talking, and the recent live DVD/CD Part of the Weekend Never Dies. Add to this an extensive catalogue of remixes for artists including The Rolling Stones, Kylie Minouge, LCD Soundsystem, Daft Punk, Gorillaz, Muse, Justice, MGMT and many, many more, and David and Stephen stack up as one of the most formidable duos in the contemporary electronic landscape.
However as 2ManyDJs, they represent an entirely different beast.
Pioneers of the bootleg genre, 2ManyDJs popularised the archive raiding style with their eleven volume As Heard on Radio Soulwax mix series, of which only volume two is legally available due to track clearance issues. In constant demand as a headline act at festivals throughout the world, 2ManyDJs never fail to blow minds with DJ sets that combine an unthinkable number of tracks, frenetically traversing the history of pop, rock, hip-hop and dance music whilst juxtaposing the obscure and the popular, generating a frantic aural atmosphere custom built for a wild Killer NYE celebration.
Ingeniously mashing together artists including Beck and the Prodigy, Dolly Parton and Royksopp, The Stooges and Salt N Pepa, and the Beastie Boys with Herbie Hancock and Inxs, 2ManyDJs prove that, in party starting terms, the whole is indeed often greater than the sum of its parts.
Performing their 2ManyDjs Live show for the first time in Australia with their only live set in Melbourne, 2ManyDJs bring with them a twenty ft. high video screen and VJ to provide a blend of animation and album artwork that will enhance the already overwhelming sensory experience that is their live show.
Supporting 2ManyDJs is prodigal Russian rave agent The Proxy, fresh from the release of Who Are You? on Tiga’s powerhouse Turbo Recordings label. Deftly deploying distortion heavy, in your face techno with menacing samples, The Proxy had dance floors heaving on his last visit to Australia. With an impressive remix arsenal including work for Chromeo, Boys Noize, Moby, Digitalism, Peaches, Zombie Nation and Tiga, and certified bombs of original tracks in Destroy, Decoy and festival anthem Raven, expect things to blow up when The Proxy hits the stage.
Tickets on sales from Midday Thursday 5th November.
