Fresh from a severe hangover recovery (care of our 4th birthday) your BIG:RED:BUS crew would love you to join them to mark their 50th B:R:B event at MyAeon.
Yep – we are running out of good excuses to have a party.
But – do we care! No F’in way!
The usual sexy selection of top shelf acts, a slammin’ FUNKTION ONE sound system, tripped-out visuals, lots-a colourful lights, friendly bar staff, comfy couches and hot people whichever way you look. And just to thumb our noses at capitalism we are only gonna charge you $10 for the privilege.
This month sees us having another crack at getting EEGOR down from sunny Sydney. This time he assures us that floods, snowstorms, typhoons and plagues of locusts won’t keep him away. We also welcome Mr LUKE SHAMANIX back on board the bus. This man’s smile and selection of tunes will surely make your life complete. And a B:R:B first – PITCHRAFT will be spinning his special blend of heavier and darker psytrance to transport us to netherworlds.
Completing the magic recipe are your rowdy yet reliable BIG:RED:BUS DJs who include the well renowned and unlimited talents of JEWELZ, the international star-studded musical acrobatics of BEAN, and the OCD towel-straightening acoustics of ANDYCAN.
With just under 2 decades of experience within the global electronic music scene, EEGOR aka Richie Blacker has earned himself a solid reputation in Australia and across the globe for his relentless bass influenced dance music.
Having played in almost every major city on the Australian sub-continent and taking the stage in countries such as Japan, Thailand, India and extensive parts of Europe, diversity is nothing new to Richie. His DJ sets at major festivals such as ‘The Rainbow Serpent Festival’(Australia), ‘Paradise Festival’(Austria) and Megaclub appearances at the ‘Pratersauna’(Vienna, Austria), ‘Le Skandalo’(Bordeaux, France) and ‘Elevate’(India) to name a few, have reflected genres of music ranging from huge, atmospheric techno, dirty electro and progressive, all the way through to tribal/deep house, whilst maintaining a heavy bass undertone.
As a Label DJ & Producer for ‘Open Records’(Australia) and ‘Bus Records’(France), with external releases on ‘Iboga Records’(Denmark), ‘Exogenic Records’(Finland) and ‘Regression Records’(Las Vegas), Richie keeps himself busy by constantly discovering new grooves and exploring new avenues of sound to fuel his passion for Djing & Production and the world as we know it…
Richie has a new and exciting project in the pipeline also, this time under the simplified moniker of ‘BLACKER’, where he is exploring the deeper, more internal, personal side of his productions…
‘KEEP IN THE LOOP’… see you in the Core !!!

Melbourne based DJ Luke Shamanix has been a regular fixture on the Australian party circuit for many seasons now. Along with delivering up some of Melbournes most infamous underground psychedelic gatherings of recent years, he’s also traveled far and wide to lay down his sound at a diverse range of events, from regular club nights through to many of Australias largest festivals.
Luke draws his inspiration from across the spectrum of psychedelic trance styles and from a diverse range of artists . However his signature sound remains that of dark nights in deep forests : pounding kicks , punchy effects and wild atmospherics delivered with minimum cheese.
In 2001 luke was a co-founder of the U.C.C. ( unconscious collective crew ), a loose coalition of like minded individuals from across Victoria who come together periodically to create intimate outdoor gatherings. These have included the “Vanishing Point” and “Solar Lunacy” series of parties , along with the “Arcane Ritual“,which featured Digital Psionics supremo Dark Nebula as headliner .
More Recently U.C.C. hosted the south african full-on master Artifakt on the Victorian leg of his Australian tour at "KerPlunk!".
