GARRY TODD (Beef, SYDNEY)
Since leaving the UK five years Garry Todd has become a pivotal figure in reforming Australia’s underground club scene . His now-legendary Bread&Butter parties breathed life into the Sydney market when it was saturated with commercial mainstream electro, attracting massively respected underground artists such as Mattias Tanzmann, Dixon, Matthew jonson, Ralph Lawson and Joris Voorn.
Garry recently played at the Playground Weekender Festival that included such acts as Jimpster and Nick Fancuilli and has also been asked to warm up for the up-coming CircoLoco Party in Sydney feauring Raresh, Pedro and Rhadoo from Romania.
Aside from djing Garry is fast becoming one the most exciting production prospects around. He has releases due out on Beef as well as the massively respected 2020 records.
Garry will be returning to Ibiza again later this year after a fruitful visit last year that saw him warm up for System of Survival (DC10) at the Cocoon after-party in a disused Bull Ring.
ROBBIE LOWE (Proton, SYDNEY)
Over a 15-year career behind the decks, Robbie Lowe has proven himself to be one of Australia’s most talented and respected Deep/Tech-House/Progressive/Techno DJs. If an international artist has come through Sydney over the past decade, there’s a good chance Robbie has supported them at least once. In 2008, Robbie warmed up the crowd for Tiesto’s Elements Of Life Tour shows in Sydney. At the same time he took up the reins as part Label Manager & A&R for the UK-based Beat Code & Low Pressings record company.
These new roles go hand in hand with Robbie’s new production focus – His union with Sydney progressive house producer Matt Rowan bore fruit through 2007/08 with releases on Hussle, Outta Limits and Rococo, and he’s recently tuned in another release with Rowan for Proton Music titled ‘Ground Swell’. Through 2009 Robbie continued his high profile slots, including the ‘We Love Sounds’ festival and warming up for Danny Howell’s New Years Eve Renaissance show at The Chinese Laundry.
Already in 2010, Robbie has played the Sydney leg of the Big Day Out festival, and with Steve Lawler, John Digweed and Way Out West.
Add to this a forthcoming 'Colour' EP and remix work with fellow Sydney DJ Tim Culbert, showcasing the deeper side of house music.
MATTTT & TOMASS (Laundry, SYDNEY)
The names Matttt and Tomass have quickly become known as two of the brightest young DJs to emerge in the Sydney scene within the past few years, with a 3DWorld cover shoot and headline story already under their belt at the ages of 21 and 22 respectively.
Despite only DJing professionally since May, 2006, the two of them have already appeared alongside and supported names like Stefan Bodzin, Lee Burridge, Claude Von Stroke, Adam Beyer, Joel Mull, Trentemoller, Marc Romboy, Desyn Masiello, Alan Braxe, Kris Menace, Stanton Warriors, Tom Neville, Malente, Jesse Rose, Bjorn Wilke, Ewan Pearson, Coburn, Hybrid, Shlomi Aber and the cream of Australia¹s local DJ crop.
They have held residences at some of Sydney¹s biggest club nights including Kink at the Arthouse, and are currently holding down a weekly spot in the Cave at the Chinese Laundry.
They have also played a diverse range of underground parties including Lost Baggage, Spice, Bread & Butter and Sweetchilli. Their sound spans many genres, crossing the boundaries of deep house and techno, and they are at home whether kicking off the night in a club or bringing it to a close.
YOKOO (Kina Music, SYDNEY)
Not an Englishman in New York but a Frenchman in Sydney, Julien Beltzung aka YokoO is no stranger to house music in all its deepest forms. A studio head in the true sense of the word, Julien spends much of his time pondering basslines and warm synth riffs that heat up dancefloors the world over. With recent releases on highly regarded labels such as Musik Gewinnt Freunde, BEEF, Affin and Kina Music, Julien has marked out a spot for himself in the global house music scene with talent being sought after from every corner of the world.
