The time has come for us to venture out to new & unfamiliar surroundings, to explore more of Melbourne’s hidden gems. Welcome to the Novel Open Air - set aside an industrial oasis from yesteryear, this never before used Open Air space yearns for attention, and that’s exactly what we’re going to give it! Join us as we bid farewell to Summer.
Over the last 2 years the industry has come to know and love the signature, ethereal sounds of the producer CYRIL HAHN.
During the In the early part of his career the Bern, Switzerland native was known for his remix work of Solange, Jessie Ware, Haim, Sigur Ros and the ever-popular Destiny’s Child remix of Say My Name.
Cyril’s work continues to hit a significant nerve with fans & other artists causing a growing demand for touring. He has played around the globe headlining sold out shows and has been billed at some of the world’s most popular music festivals.
Chrome Sparks is the solo project of Jeremy Malvin, a Brooklyn transplant from Pittsburgh by way of Ann Arbor. In 2014, after having self released a small handful of singles and two EPs on Bandcamp, Malvin signed to the taste making Sydney based label Future Classic.
Inspired by a background in classical percussion and an obsession with synthesisers, Malvin creates dazed, melodic beat-centric tunes that loosely hang between down-tempo head nodders and up-tempo club bangers.
Given their shared appreciation for story telling and dignified belief in the Australian identity, Harvey Miller and Monte Morgan naturally found themselves writing music together.
From the studio to the top end of town, Client Liaison’s sound plays out like a long lunch followed by a round of cocktails. Describing their sonic palate as ‘dance electric’, ‘new jack swing’ and ‘pop ballad’, this multisensory experience will feed any listeners’ appetite. International in flavour, cosmopolitan in style – this is Client Liaison.
Total Giovanni is a quintet, now residing in Melbourne, made by Spike Punch, Vincenzo D (aka Frankie Topaz), Shidi Amin (aka Sideboard Ford), Cavallo Nero (aka Hornelle Equinox) and Jingles (aka Pistachio Buttercup).
Earning notoriety from their visually unique and highly energetic live shows Total Giovanni create dance music to enable collective psychic liberation. Having built a reputation on whipping small music venues into wild bacchanalian frenzies, they now seek to bring their poly-rhythmic jams, strange clothing and liberated masculinity in to your living room with a string of single releases on Melbourne label Two Bright Lakes/Remote Control.
