Dank artist & VJ Warren Handley aka ATLASt has got a solo show happening next Wednesday (3rd August) over at Brew, located down Burnett Laneway in heart of Brisbane’s CBD (right next to Rocking Horse – RIP).
Ten recent digital works will be on display and on sale in the form of large A1 sized prints. The show titled Geo-Graphic expands Warren Handley’s exploration of the tangible and intangible, the natural and the digital. While his practice is diverse in subject matter and medium, these prints come from his body of work that investigates how we perceive space and form. It explores visual forms that recur through the universe from the macro to the micro scale.
Experimenting with the visual paradox between rigidity of geometric shapes and organic, natural environments, Geo-graphic is a series of digital collages / illustrations layering seemingly competing images of the human made euclidean geometry with naturally occurring fractal-based geometry.
Recently DM has had the pleasure of coming across a new forward thinking Brisbane collective called Silo. It is great to see other like-minded people coming out of the woodworks with their own multi-media force…
Silo is a Brisbane based collective of music producers, beatsmiths, and visual artists.
Silo is dedicated to promoting electronic music around Brisbane, and helping to build the local scene. It is designed to give lesser known electronic artists (local, interstate, or international) a space to perform to people who appreciate their work.
Already, Silo boasts a stable of eclectic artists producing forward thinking electronic music of various persuasions. Their blog is also a great source for the latest in music and news. Be sure to have a look and listen.
Watch this space for upcoming gigs and collaborations between Silo and Dank Morass!
Our homies White Rhino are celebrating three years of putting on killer shows from across the electronic spectrum. Some of the best have been Surgeon, Shackleton, Mount Kimbie, Ikonika and Joker (which they put on with us here at the Morass), just to name a few of a long and braincrushing list.
To celebrate, they’re throwing a free party with deservedly feted Sydney-based producer Dro Carey, who has been on some slow burn blow-up over the last few months. Check a great interview and mix from the young gun here.
Support from Forest of Death (White Rhino sound system) and a heavy line-up of DJs including Vivandiere (Bookery Cook), ATLAST (Dank Morass visual crew – on decks!) , Danck (Morass), Jimmy Larcombe, Beads, Fr1day, Si Clone, Arctic, Samedi Soundsystem and 2-Tonic.
Did we mention it’s FREE?

Once again, the Brainfeeder crew delivered the goods to Brisbane with the one Samiyam stopping through for an intimate Sunday audience with a dedicated dancefloor of heads at x&y Bar. Extra special thanks go out to Milesago (AKA LenOne, right) who dealt a brilliant set of soul, hip hop, skwee and more, and Puzahki, who played an hour of original beats that covered all the bases of bass. Seriously, if you haven’t heard of this guy, you will soon. Check for his forthcoming releases on new label Ender. We’re a little embarassed its taken us so long to book him.
Shout out to ATLASt and Archi Lancaster for providing the visual backdrops, and to Tammy for taking the pics below. You can check her full set of shots from the gig at In The Mix. Shout out to Samuel Dunn for this video of proceedings, which showcases the visuals as well as Samiyam’s wild beat styles. Love to the crew from our regular venue the Step Inn for stepping on down, and everyone else who got their Sunday night shuffle on
It wasn’t all double rainbows though. An unfortunate misunderstanding meant we were deprived of the inestimable selecting skills of the Walrus for most of the night, which certainly put the proverbial dampener on proceedings. Still, we powered through and Sam delivered a blinder of a set.
Basically, at the start of the year Brainfeeder’s very own GASLAMP KILLER (who definitely deserves all caps upon his name) absolutely tore Brisbane apart at Dank Morass’s home ground, the Step Inn. For those of you who missed out on this next level DJ in all his glory, ATLASt has put together a few snippets from the night recorded in between mashing away at the strobe light and mixing visuals with Archi Lancaster. A taste of things to come when yet another Brainfeeder legend arrives to blow Brisbane minds in the not too distant future.
After the mayhem of Gaslamp Killer’s recent Brisbane appearance, Dank Morass are positively oscillating and ready to announce our next party featuring an all local line up of Brisbane bass producers and DJs, with live visuals courtesy of Dank Morass’ projection wizards Archie Lancaster & ATLASt (big up on the flyer). Dank Side Of The Moon will bring together the cosmic sounds from some of our regulars as well as a few fresh faces to the Morass.
Science Project (aka 8man and Grimes) have been hard at work in the lab concocting, in their words, a “futuristic exploration of moods and rhythms of bass-heavy proportions”. This all culminated a few months ago with the release of their new EP Alchemystic – available now on iTunes through Dub Tempo. Science Project’s live show has rocked several Dank Morass and Scuba Tank parties to date including warming up for Starkey and more recently, Gaslamp Killer. Science Project will be bringing their electrified dubstep and bass explorations to life with a drum kit, an MPC, effects, and a set of 1s and 2s in celebration of the release of their EP.
Also on the line-up is Herts, the founder of brand new bass label Amecca Records, which has forthcoming releases from local and international producers such as Elroy 4.0, Shankles and Puzakhi. Herts will be pushing marinara deep beats from across the global spectrum of rhythms.
Vivandiere (representing the Bookery Cook collective) has a deep love of underground disco, funk and soul which shines through as a major influence in her refined electronic selections. She will be blessing ears with a rare DJ set at Dank Side. Another rare treat for Brisbane bass fiends will come in the form of a DJ set of hip hop and beats from Mongo – who used to make regular appearances at the mighty Rude Bwoyz drum ‘n’ bass nights.
And as always, making your blubber quiver will be the sinister beats, eclectic bass and soulful selections from the crates of Walrii and Swob of Dank Morass. The Walrus and Sgt. Swob will be holding down the fort while Danck is overseas on a mission to LA’s Low End Theory and the Sonar Festival in Barcelona.
