ECHOES V1.0 // Friday 12th November at Loop

Post by Dub Club Melbourne »

Loop presents Echoes; A night celebrating the influence of Dub in electronic music, from its Jamaican origins to House, Techno and Dubstep.
Dub, developed originally on the late sixties focusing on the rhythmic parts of a Reggae recording, grew to be a genre on its own right that has literally shaken the world ever since. It was a powerful experiment that has pushed the use of the mixing desk as an instrument and gave greater control to the sound engineer as a producer. It set the blueprint for much of the dance music that has followed.

Echoes will take you on a bass heavy journey from Kingston to Berlin via Detroit and London. For this evening we’ve put together a group of experienced selectors who love the sound:

Derek M aka Stryka D – Born and raised in Liverpool, this English expat has been causing waves in the local Dub scene since moving to Australia in 2001. Apart from being an accomplished DJ - having been billed alongside various international touring acts including Dub Syndicate, Lloyd Parks, Lee Scratch Perry, Mad Professor, Sly and Robbie, Mykal Rose, Big Youth, Third World, Iration Steppas, Lucky Dube, Luciano, Mikey General, Horace Andy and Bushman - he is also the mind behind the Heartical HIFi project.
Since its inception in 2002, the Heartical HiFi project took reggae and dub music to a new level, presenting it the way it’s made to be played on a high powered, bass heavy sound system and the crew spear headed by Stryka D have since become internationally recognised as one of Australia’s leading dub and reggae outfits.
Since 2004 Derek is involved with local community radio station PBSFM 106.7 where he continues to present “Break The Chain” every Friday from 11 am to 1 pm.

Lance Harrison – DJ, producer, label owner and record shop manager, there isn’t much that Lance hasn’t accomplished through his career. One of Melbourne’s finest selectors and a vinyl ambassador who has been DJing for 15 years; Expect an upfront set that will keep the balance between old and new.

Carlos N aka Matic – this Brazilian expat is a true Techno globetrotter. Since starting DJing in the late nineties, he has spent the last 13 years building his record collection between Brazil, Holland, Spain and Australia. A Melbourne resident since 2007, he has played around some of the city’s finest venues and Techno nights. Never one to be limited by the BPM and with an ear for experimentation his sets have been highly regarded by punters and promoters alike. Expect to hear a set of forward thinking music that stimulates both mind and body.

Mark Baumann aka Markojux – This producer, DJ and label owner co-runs Pinksilver records with Lance and has released a variety of tunes and remixes on different labels around the world since 2004. Mark is a master in creating deep atmospheres on his productions which translates to his sets. For this evening he will debut a special Dubstep live/DJ set hybrid including his own productions.
