Compound DJs (DJ Hernan, Mansion, Speakeasy & Clark Cohen)
Compound is proud to announce its first party for 2012 showcasing the sounds of the up and coming label Templar Sound.
Templar Sound is one of the most exciting labels to come out of Sydney; established in 2011 Templar Sound was amongst the first to sign on the amazingly talented Dro Carey, Montreal's Grown Folk & London's Citizen. Templar Sound has also released remixes from the likes of Helix, Cedaa, Chaos in the CBD, LOL Boys, Trim and Darling Farah; the label has also received massive support from worldwide tastemakers Ben UFO, Jacques Greene, Ikonika and Oneman. Label head honcho Aidan Bennison will be waving the banner high as Templar Soundsystem at the first ever Compound event playing an intimate two hour DJ set.
Joining Templar Soundsystem we have one of Sydney’s finest selectors Kato; with over a decade behind the 1s & 2s Kato wields a dangerous knowledge of mega jams. Kato has supported the likes of Diplo, Snoop Dogg, Hudson Mohawke, Rustie and Daft Punk to Deadboy, Doc Daneeka, Solo and Claude Von Stroke. In 2011 Kato doubled as one half of Wordlife, with fellow mad villain Adam Bozetto, releasing their debut EP 'Birth, House, Rap, Food, Life '; the release hit the number #2 spot on Beatports Indie Dance chart and received support from some of the biggest names in the industry such as Brodinski and Claude Von Stroke.
Our two very special guests are supported by the resident Compound DJs. From the stars to the shores, we dig everything with a little extra feeling and we hope you do too.
