Last Saturday 26th January saw the launch of SEETHE MONTHLY a club night focusing on local djs and producers pushing forward-thinking dance floor music of all kinds.
One of the highlights of the night was Monologue’s live deconstruction and mash up of over 130 dance floor tunes alongside a session drummer. DL/stream the recording of this epic mix below… Track-listing in soundcloud description.
SEETHE is an umbrella for Brisbane’s electronic music crews, new and old, at the new venue, Wasteland venue (joined to coniston lane).
The night aims to tap into the rich community of artists who are pushing and creating next level underground music and visual arts in Brisbane.
Continuing the momentum of the launch party, the next SEETHE is taking place on Saturday February 23rd and will be happening every month on a Saturday. $5 on the door everytime.
This month in Subdetritus we hold a lantern up to one of the most promising young labels to spew forth from the heady bass brew slowly bubbling away in Brisbane – Ender Records. Founded by John English (aka Herts), the label has become home to a grip of young underground beat makers from Queensland and beyond. “I have been trying to get a label going for about 2 years now,” English explains. “With two failed ventures behind me, I decided to just do it on my own. It seems to be working well so far! I just want the world to hear the amazing music that is coming out of our region, and also further cement Australia as a serious global contender in the beat scene.”
So far the label has released the incredible Laser Storm EP by Brisbane-based Elroy 4.0, a free Christmas compilation last December that featured fifteen beats from the entire Ender family and an impressive 3-track release from Total Stranger called Burning Sockets – all of which are available from the Ender Bandcamp site. For English, its not just about getting this music released but to give the acts on Ender everything they need to move to the next level. “The end goal would be to have successful releases that lead to global tours for all our artists, and encompassing management, distribution and publishing,” he says. “Another goal is to expand the label to represent not only musicians but all media artists, releasing video and other new media content.”
Ender Records is sitting on some pretty exciting future releases. Keep a weathered eye on the horizon for new bits from New Zealand-based producers Epoch and Lefty. Also in the pipeline are releases from Australian producers Pedestrian and the follow-up from Total Stranger that has been described by English as “kind of like taking ketamine at a school disco.” A video for the new Total Stranger tune ‘State Of Mind’ is up now on the Ender website (see above). The big one that many people in the local scene are waiting for is the debut album from Puzahki – Flex Capacitor. No less than eight free mix tapes from this prolific beat maker will precede the official album release that has been almost four years in the making. Stay tuned to the Ender website or Facebook group for more info on these releases and further information about this new guard of bass alchemists.
