HALLOWEEN HELL RAVE II w. Zanias (Berlin) + Miles Brown + Halv Drøm (Berlin) + more

New Guernica 10th Birthday
ft. Zanias (Berlin) + Halv Drøm (Berlin)++

Melbourne's finest creatures of the night Escape the realm of the living and descend into the underworld for this year's demonic dance of the dead. Calling all freaks and the unwanted, the tortured and torn, the devils and deviants to free your inner fiends and indulge in this diabolical celebration.

Tonight is All Hallows Eve, 'tis the night to destroy your inhibitions and dance away your sins... Possessed by sonic passion, driven by the thirst, we are hellishly enchanted and ghoulishly reborn as we twist and turn our tormented souls... By the waxing crescent moon we honour New Guernica's 10th year anniversary as we rave to the grave all night long.

Sonic ticks & treats brought to you by this all-star line up:

Zanias (Fleisch Records- Berlin)
Zanias was born in Australia, raised in South-East Asia and now resides in Berlin. She was once known as the voice of the bands Linea Aspera and Keluar. Tying together industrial rhythms and unearthly vocals, she explores an intrinsically human journey through loss and upheaval.
In addition to performance and production, Zanias is a member of Berlin's Fleisch collective, an amalgam of artists with a primary taste for electronic body music, new beat, industrial, acid and the darker, wavier fringes of techno.

Miles Brown (It records / Death Waltz Recording Company)
Miles Brown is a leading Australian thereminist, composer and sound artist. A student of Russian theremin queen Lydia Kavina, Brown is known for his work with Melbourne instrumental electronic act The Night Terrors, and has also performed with renowned artists such as Lou Reed, Laurie Anderson, Goblin and Black Mountain. Brown’s solo work explores the theremin and analogue synthesiser in the realm of dark dance and ethereal electronics. His debut solo album Séance Fiction is out now through Death Waltz Originals / It Records.

Dj Kiti
DJ Kiti is a Melbourne born and raised DJ and started dj'ing in 2002.
Stemming from a long relationship with music; from a young music collector, in the school choir, orchestra and a keen club kid. Starting seminal club nights (ROXY, 7 years) and LOUD (Honkytonks 4 years) and dj'ing along side techno/houses' finest dj's, bands & festivals of the moment, into prolific institutions all over Melbourne.

Halv Drøm (X-IMG / Total Black / Instruments of Discipline)
The sonic world of Halv Drøm delve deep into this burning question. Weaving science and spirituality into well-established engines of industrial, EBM and post-punk, Saxon Jorgensen’s work seeks to break out of the confines of “dark” music (by this point an overused descriptor, particularly in these crumbling times) to shape something far more imperious and personal. Whereas techno is so often used as a sledgehammer, Jorgensen wields it like an ice-sculptor with a chainsaw.

Discarnate (PLEXUS)
Discarnate, who defines himself as a music worker and a techno activist, is the co-founder and resident of Melbourne based collective PLEXUS.
He aims to create a dynamic and confident yet rascal momentum on the dance floor, trying to convey his rave vision by noisy and aggressive sounds. He mixes EBM, acid and industrial techno tracks with dark, gritty and sinister tones. With his background coming from hardcore and metal, it’s easy to see where he takes his inspiration from.

Λ / Π (TRAIT Records)
The industrial-techno collaboration between Nic Brown (friendships) and Amber Arizono who unleashed their debut 12″ EP via cult Melbourne imprint Trait Records in early 2019.
Born from a shared love for perceptual experimentation and hardware electronica, Λ/Π explore the history of industrial-techno through a dark cosmic lens. Honing their sound via a selection of sweat-fuelled, late-night club sets, the duo have quickly risen to become one of Melbourne’s most unique live-electronic acts.

RMR (Rachael MacRae) is a Melbourne based techno & electronic music DJ. She grew up listening to metal, punk rock & playing the bass guitar. Her love of loud music & bass evolved into dark, bass-heavy melodic techno. She relates to music and dancing as a form of therapy through which we can reconnect with the present, body and other.

Onyx has been playing widely diverse sets, pulling from heavy techno to drum & bass across the Melbourne queer underground scene. Performing recently at Trough, Barba & Honcho we're looking forward to see what they have in-store.

Kylie Jackson, AKA ‘KRITICAL’, began spinning vinyl in Adelaide’s Hip Hop scene in 2004. Years later she relocated to London, and there she merged into the underground techno scene, which influenced her European dark heavy pulsating techno style.

Voss (Factoid)
One half of Drug Vicar and Factoid label owner, Voss has thrown some of the funnest raves in Melbourne.

Pablo Mann
Pablo Mann is a Melbourne based DJ and artist. With a keen interest on hypnotic, immersive techno, Pablo has developed his skills as a resident of the Translate collective for the past several years. Having supported the likes of Yan Cook and Takaaki Itoh, Pablo always tries to keep the dance floor both heaving and interesting.
