TEA is now 2 years young and to celebrate 24 months of internet rambling and obsessive blogging comes a 3 hour set from TEA Commander in Chief James Manning.
TEA began as blog focused on sharing what we believe to be good music written in a professional manner. So far TEA has interviewed close to 40 acts including luminaries such as Surgeon, Marcel Dettmann, Norman Nodge, Adam X, Dan Curtin, Redshape, Terrence Fixmer, Xhin, Lucy and Perc as well as up and coming artist Tom Dicicco, AnD, Markus Suckut, Milton Bradley, James Kumo and Ed Davenport.
TEA also runs a successful podcast series which has so far seen podcasts from HMC, Rødhad, AnD, Zadig, Subjected, Tom Dicicco, Adam Rivet and Northern Structures.
TEA is responsible for Xhin and Lucy's inaugural Australian tours and has hosted other parties with Robert Hood, Marcel Dettmann, Jay Shepheard as well as booking local acts The Carter Bros, Tornado Wallace, Mic Newman and Francis Inferno Orchestra to play at various venues around Australia.
TEA's 2nd Birthday warm up duties are of course entrusted in TEA's warm up specialist Daniel Filipovic, who's formidable ability to woo an entering crowd with his dub laden precision is of absolute perfection. James Manning will have the floor from 12 where instead about writing about TEA's favourite releases he will be playing them, expect anything from beatless avant garde records to pummelling mid nineties Downwards releases to hands up house. TEA also introduces the worldly Nic Tuohey, who's encyclopaedic knowledge and taste making qualities come courtesy of stints living in London and Berlin and Los Angeles.
TEA would like to thank all who have supported us in the past and we look forward to a forward thinking and expressive night of detached music.
