June 13 - GPO Nightclub - Cover only $10!!!
Ritual Events returns (finally!) in 2008 to bring Anthony Pappa back to Brisbane in support of his new mix CD release *Moments*. If you were at Ulterior II last year you will know how awesome Anthony is behind the decks of late, DO NOT MISS THIS!!!
This will be the first dedicated mix album from Anthony in over 3 years and promises to reflect his live performances at his sell out tour dates around the world. Anthony has played the biggest clubs on the planet and mixed the scene’s biggest selling albums. But fuelled by endless energy for the music and a desire to play it for people, there is much, much more to come. From the comfort of your home you can access Anthony via the radio show on www.protonradio.com, but if you need to get closer, the hardest working man on the circuit spends much of his time at the coalface of club culture, actually doing the job of the DJ, working the territories that love him, from Eastern Europe to South America. “I’ve always been known amongst the other DJs as the hard working guy who tries to do it all,” Anthony details. “Maybe it‘s because I’ve come from Australia and I’ve got that drive, to try and make it work for me over here.”
Now based in the UK Anthony recently set up a label, Red Light District, on which he will soon release a single, Outback. Also out in April is Moments, a 3-CD mix album which gives Anthony the space and the scope to really dig into all four corners of his record box. “It starts off with deep house, then tech house, then finishes off with techno,” he explains. “And it goes through whatever in the middle to get there!” A deep, urbane album, Moments progresses without necessarily being progressive and true to form, is truly forward thinking. “People say ‘progressive’ is a bad word,” says Anthony, “but that’s exactly what it is. At the end of the day… it’s all progressive.” Thankfully there are innovators like Pappa prepared to do think that way, otherwise we’d all still be wearing flares and spinning Night Fever.
