It's always a privilege to showcase truly unique artists at the Cellar Door. As the warmer weather sets in, our courtyard opens up, and Sunday's role through, it gives us great pleasure to present 3 of the most prominent emerging acts in recent times. With Rosé inhand, guest chef incoming, and on one of the best soundsystems in the city, we give you:
Harvey Sutherland + Bermuda

We will also be announcing a guest chef for the day cooking up out the back, stay tuned! Food will not be included in the ticket price.
Harvey Sutherland & Bermuda - A one-time session player and behind-the-scenes man, analog synthesist Harvey Sutherland emerged from Melbourne’s bubbling underground with a cassette tape in hand. 2013’s Nexus EP on This Thing Records - a trip through lo-fi boogie and Roland house music - was a cult hit amongst dancefloor aficionados, priming listeners for a lauded EP on Echovolt Records and the best-selling ‘Brothers’ on Voyage Recordings. Sutherland’s improvisational live show - equal parts 808 rattle and double disco clap - is an evolving, synthetic boogie exploration. Manning the controls of the mighty Juno 60 synthesizer, Harvey sweats it out with the crowd, looping new phrases and modulations, pitch-bent solos and the occasional Janet Jackson cover into a heavy four-to-the-floor throwdown. His latest live formulation is a futurist disco trio he calls “Bermuda”, featuring Melbourne session drummer Graeme Pogson and Tamil Rogeon on electric strings.
Andy Hart - Another Melbourne / Berlin export, Andy is pioneering Australian electronic music world wide. From the early days of Melbourne Deepcast, to the creation of one of Melbournes best party's, Wax'o Paradiso, to launching his own label Voyage Recordings, Andy consistently over delivers...a uniquely driven, creative artist that we can't wait to hear down at the Cellar Door.
Youandewan - Managing to maneuver himself into an enviable underground position in the last few years. After initial success on labels like Hypercolour and with remixes of Gerry Read and Midland, he has moved on to become a firm part of the family at both Secretsundaze and Aus Music. In the past 12 months, Ewan has played at Womb, Fuse, Fabric, and Output to name a few. He's now based in Berlin where he's continued to mature as an artist. As well as forthcoming music on Aus, Voyage & Mosaic, the notoriously low-key producer has just released a beautifully intricate debut album to welcomed applause of many.
