IVAN SMAGGHE BIO:
Ivan Smagghe belongs to a top table of DJs that journalists like to lazily describe as â€œThe DJâ€™s DJsâ€. Along with the likes of occasional partner-in-crime Andrew Weatherall, Ivan has the ability to play music like a raw conduit between his famously obscure records and the dancefloorâ€™s strobe-soaked bodies, injecting something of himself seamlessly into the mix along the way.
His genre defying/defining production work originally in Black Strobe and now in Itâ€™s A Fine Line (who have recently finished Battantâ€™s second LP, As I Ride with No Horse) has connected him to and garnered the praise of (amongst others) James Murphy, Trevor Jackson, Ata, Optimo and the aforementioned Weatherall. All fellow crusaders in the fight to prove that electronic music can be so much more than a one dimensional soundtrack for a night on the lash.
The success of his musical blog â€˜a few things from Ivan Smaggheâ€™ has generated a compilation series of edits for Paris uber-fashion store Colette. The first volume sold out in a couple of weeks. His project with Tim Paris, Itâ€™s A Fine Line, has already put out numerous remixes (from Superpitcher to the XX) and releases that canâ€™t be pigeonholed (electro rockabilly on Kompakt to italo rickety disco on Marketing Music). Their new studio is now fully set for original music, remixes and production. Expect a lot more from them in 2012.
Aside from his A&R role for now 10 years old label Kill The DJ (who have released the first EP of RMVN, Ivanâ€™s project with Roman Flugel), Ivan has also started solo work (a noted remix for Parisian label Meant) as well as more planned collaborations with musical friends (Ewan Pearson and Tiga being first on the list).
You can catch Ivan subverting the masses on any given weekend, all around the world.
TWISTED KALEIDOSCOPE BIO:
Since its inaugural Christmas Eve outing in 2010, Twisted Kaleidoscope has been the gift that keeps on giving for Perthâ€™s growing number of hedonistic party-goers and dance music aficionados. Relentless commitment to a progressive music policy, high quality guest bookings and slick event production provide the backbone to a new and much needed style of party for the city as residents Garry Traill, Findlay Jamieson, Robert MacDonald, Gregor Scott and Bageera get it going, pick you up and carry it elsewhere with a mixed bag of treats, spanning the sounds like only a team of 4/4 freaks could.
Previous guests have included a slew of national heavyweights including Harvey Mckay, Hans Bouffmyhre, Simon Stokes, Marmalade Man, Christopher Kelly and Wrick Hedley, and with Aprilâ€™s Ice Factory party ending in a special b2b with Findlay and Milton Jackson, the groupâ€™s scope is set only to bigger and brighter things.
Continuing on from their residency at the infamous Ice Factory, 2012 sees Twisted Kaleidoscope set their sights even farther afield, and yet again presenting an absolute first for Perth in the form of the groupâ€™s premier all day party. Twelve hours, eleven DJs and a Funktion One system cement TK as one of the cityâ€™s greatest natural resources.
