THE HAPPY MONDAYS

For the first time in Australia- the definitive original line-up!

KillRockStar Big Dog Entertainment are thrilled to present Happy Mondays for the first time in Australia- the definitive original line-up!

Fusing the euphoric elements of acid house and rave with joyous indie guitar pop, Manchester’s Happy Mondays became one of the most influential UK bands of the later 20th century.  Instigating a cosmic psychedelic shift that is still being felt in music today, the Mondays delivered a salvo of classic tracks and club anthems that were not only highly danceable, but contained enough visceral emotion and raw chemical energy to continually excite and engage a generation.  Tracks like Step On, 24 Hour Party People, Wrote For Luck, Loose Fit and Kinky Afro showcased the band’s unique ability to unify the divide between dance music and rock ‘n’ roll.

With an original line-up that included Shaun Ryder on lead vocals, his brother Paul Ryder on bass, lead guitarist Mark Day, drummer Gary Whelan and the legendary MarkBezBerry on dance and vibes, the Mondays released their classic debutSquirrel And G-Man Twenty Four Hour Party People Plastic Face Carnt Smile (White Out) in 1987 to widespread critical acclaim. The albums that followed,  1988’s Bummed and then Pills ‘n’ Thrills and Bellyaches in 1990 were received as instant classics and cemented the Mondays at the forefront of the UK scene the press had dubbed as ‘Madchester’.

The band’s 4th album Yes Please! was released in 1992  after which various incarnations of the band followed as did the 2007 release of Unkle Dysfunktional which saw continuing to tour the globe to much acclaim. In 2012 Shaun Ryder announced that the original Happy Mondays line-up would be reuniting and a sold out UK tour quickly followed. 2012 saw the release of Double Double Good and more sold out shows around the planet. The band recently reconvened in the studio for the first new album with the original line-up in 20 years which is due for release in 2013.

Ultra Music Festival in Europe!

[youtube=http://youtu.be/-OgkOqWk1go]

Ultra Worldwide has just announced that they will be bringing their prestigious festival to Europe for the first time in 2013 from July 12th – 14th in Croatia. The festival plans to span 2 separate venues – spending its first 2 days at Poljud Stadium before moving to the Hotel Amfora Grand Beach Resort on the island of Hvar. This is exciting news for European dance music fans, but it remains to be seen if a Miami Music Week type of following, with its week long party schedule, will be established in it’s inaugural year.

Priced at 40 euros (approximately $65 USD), early bird tickets for the first two days go on sale December 5th exclusively at Ultra Europe.com. Stayed tuned for the Phase One lineup announcement on December 12th at 12:00 p.m. local time.  Also, for those of us stuck in the states, there are already extensive plans to stream the event through UMF TV and UMF Radio. It will be Swedish House Mafia’s final performances at Ultra Music Festival. Be sure to grab a ticket to get in quick!

Calvin Harris & More at Marquee Sydney!!

Hot on the heels of the news that Dirty South is coming home to bring in the New Year at Marquee Sydney, the club has announced more big-name acts. This time, it’s all happening around Stereosonic, with four of the festival’s headliners given a night each. Kicking things off is dance hitmaker Calvin Harris, who’ll be filling the main room on Friday 23 November, the night before he hits the Stereo mainstage. The DJ-producer has been keeping busy in recent months, and new album “18 Months” comes with guest appearances from Example, Kelis, Dillon Francis and Florence Welch.

After Stereosonic has wound up, fast-rising U.S. star Porter Robinson will be making his way to Marquee for an official afterparty. You can expect a livewire set from him. As he told inthemix, “I think a year ago I would’ve played the tracks that guaranteed me the best response possible. But I think now it’s more important to present something that’s unusual than perfect. I think it’s easy to provide a fairly-perfect DJ set, you know?”

From there, it’s the turn of Dutch big-room pro Sander van Doorn to headline a mid-week session on Wednesday 28 November. The Dutchman told Vibe at ADE that his recent career has been a whirlwind. “I just did a collaboration together with Mark Knight, and another with a dance group I can’t say too much about yet. My schedule is absolutely ridiculous right now.” Capping it all off is another Dutch big name, Chuckie, who has plenty of experience playing rooms like Marquee. That’s quite a run.

Marquee Stereosonic sideshows:

Friday 23 November – Calvin Harris [$50 on the door]
Saturday 24 November – Porter Robinson [$30 on the door or free with Stereosonic ticket stub]
Wednesday 28 November – Sander van Doorn [$30 on the door]
Friday 30 November – Chuckie [$30 on the door]

Wobble with DJ Madd & More!

Wobble and Heavy Innit are proud to announce, for the first time performing at Wobble and in Australia, in conjunction with Melbourne Music Week, DJ MADD. Unless, you were particularly in the know, you could be forgiven for thinking DJ Madd had exploded onto the underground music scene from nowhere. With a background in D&B and a love of all things bass-related, Hungarian-born Peter Simon gravitated towards the low-end sonics of Dubstep in 2008, with early releases on the well-respected Boka Records and the reggae-vibed War series of white labels. In 2009 he caught the ear of those behind the fledgling Black Box imprint, and together artist & label have gone to become recognised as leaders in the Dubstep scene. Furthermore, he has released 12″s on Osiris Music and Wheel & Deal, enjoying regular play from Rinse and BBC Radio DJs. With a killer lineup this is one party not to be missed. Deep, Dark and Heavy vibes, all powered by Heartical Hi Fi Soundsystem.
