HUGE Thanks to Simon Bell at Night Works Audio for adding his glorious FUNKTION ONE sound to our party!!
Aww yeah, 6 months after one of our ALL TIME favourite parties down at The Civic, we're bringing the one, the only, Late Nite Tuff Guy back up to Sydney, this time for a glorious afternoon on The Island. For those of you lucky enough to experience the last show, you'll know what kind of extraordinary sounds are in store - and to be able to host one of the Australia's most legendary DJs on a stunning harbour venue in summer is just so good.
HMC first made his mark in the early '80s, when he was one of the first DJs in the country to spin Chicago house and Detroit techno. He made his production debut back in 1991 with the 100% Juice EP on Juice Records, Australia's first techno label. In 1995 he released "Phreakin'" as the first twelve-inch on Dirty House Records, which went on to become an international hit and put Adelaide on the world map as what people were calling the "Aussie Detroit". All of this spells one thing: PIONEER. It's not often people can legitimately be labelled "The Godfather" of something, but not many people will dispute the title being handed to HMC when it comes to Australian techno.
In recent years, Bianchetti has made a prolific return to producing, both as HMC and under the moniker Late Nite Tuff Guy. "I Get Deeper" had a truly massive impact all over the world, and his string of amazing releases on disco edits imprint Dessert Island Discs indicates that he's back with a vengeance and a newfound excitement for sharing the music he's passionate about. At the last ONS we got a taste of just how deep his catalogue runs - seems like only a tiny number of his edits have been released to the public, so you'll have to catch him in the flesh to hear some of his hidden treasures. He's also been talking about making the move to Berlin so make the most of him still being here in Aus!
STEPHEN ALLKINS (Yes, we know!! How lucky are we!)
