Hey kids, we have another musically action packed night planned for you on the 18th of March, but before I get into that, I must thank PQM and OTOLOGIC for their perfomances at our last party. As much of a cliche that this may sound like it was a musical rollercoaster that you could never really determine what was going to happen next. From dirty and deep percussive workouts to old school bronx party jams and everything in between. The end of the night went completely the opposite of what you would normally expect and turned into some kind of new skool mutated funk jam that had the whole venue enthralled and the dance floor heavinh. What an experience!
I love it when people come up to me, especially industry people like bar staff or security and ask me what we call this kind of music and where they can buy it. The answer is it’s not a genre, it just takes individuals with a wide selection in musical taste and technical skill to pull it off and make it sound cohesive.
This month we have enlisted another of our favourites from years gone by ANDRÁS aka Andras Fox aka Andy Wilson. Last time Andras played for us was at MY AEON 7th Birthday with Oscar Key Sung which is another one of those nights that cannot be erased out of my memory. The lads had keyboards and decks and saw Oscar with a microphone on the dancefloor singing and dancing with the crowd. When it was time to DJ Andras played one of the best sets on a rotary mixer ever at My Aeon
For those that don’t already know, András is a Melbourne producer making tactile and imperfect electronic music. Inspired by primitive percussion, simple melodies and home recording, Andras combines elements of house music and new age ambience in a distinctly antipodean way.
Based around drum machine rhythms and new age synths, his original tape recordings are simultaneously contemporary in sound and difficult to carbon date, slipping comfortably between Library Music, 90s House and instrumental synth funk.
After sold-out solo releases, András teamed up with vocalist Oscar Key Sung for a collaborative LP that went back to the roots of disco and house. Receiving support and plays from the likes of Dam Funk and Move D, it was an earnest catalogue of cassette demos recorded in the industrial district of West Melbourne. The pair continued to delve deep into late night coffee culture with their follow up LP Cafe Romantica, which presented a more carefully debauched look into Pizza and Romance.
His follow up solo 12” Erskine Falls (HLR records) as well as a recent EP Vibrate on Silent (Mexican Summer) have explored
Presenting the weekly radio show Strange Holiday on 3RRR FM in Melbourne has given him a chance to greatly expand his record collection, which currently occupies the broad territory between Disco, World, Library and Balearic sounds. This depth of knowledge about music‘s past informs his productions, which all give a nod and a wink to the past.
András has supported artists including James Pants, Andres & DJ Sprinkles, as well as recently returning from an extended EU tour. In a digital, cool world full of hectic pace, Andras Fox brings warmth, relaxation and gentle grooves to your ears.
His latest work Overworld, recorded for dance theatre, is released under the alias that reclaims his birth name Andrew Richard Wilson (T stands for trouble). A.r.t. Wilson is a slight detour from dance music land into the world of new-age and ambient music. It‘s a trip to the forest or the ocean after a big night out, it‘s an open window in the recording studio.
With support from Ozzie LA and your truely, this will be another party to remember
See you on the dancefloor!
