Labour Day looms large on the calendar as the next public holiday in Melbourne, and an excuse for a large party event. The annual Two Tribes event is set to happen on Sunday 7 March 2004 at Melbourne Park, from 4pm through until 7am. Here is the latest news on the DJ lineup which also includes BT, Mauro Picotto, Green Velvet, Fergie, Hybrid, Tomcraft, Lucien Foort, Christopher Lawrence, ATFC - OnePhatDeeva, DJ Falcon, Koma & Bones and many more.
Techno big name Adam Beyer has been lost from the lineup, but before the techno fans start to howl, hang tight. The four new additions to the bill are Renato Cohen (Brazil), Samuel L. Sessions (Sweden), Louis Osbourne (UK) and local hip hop heroes 1200 Techniques.
Two Tribes will mark the first time techno DJ Renato Cohen has visited Australia. As well as having a reputation as a fast and furious mixer, Cohen has been producing rich techno sounds since 1996 and recorded for Intec, Techansia, Sino and more. Samuel L. Sessions is no stranger to Australia, having been here two times previously. If you've caught his sets before you'll know is style is a seamless blend of tech-phunk, techno and tribalistic grooves. He has a new album due out this year, as well as a new label in the pipeline.
Louis Osbourne is a tech-house/techno DJ who just also happens to be the son of renowned rocker Ozzy Osbourne. His career started with a residency at Birmingham’s techno mecca, House Of God, which he still holds to this day.
As the local addition to the bill, 1200 Techniques will be playing live at Two Tribes. They exploded onto the Australian dance scene last year with their ‘Choose One’ album, and are set to continue that form with their recently released follow up ‘Consistency Theory’.
