Animals Dancing: Young Marco // Prins Thomas

After announcing two big shows in March, the Animals Dancing lads are very pleased to follow up with the Australian debut of Amsterdam’s Young Marco this Good Friday Eve.

<< Young Marco is also playing in Sydney on the 18th at a 'mystery' warehouse party (details) and also in Adelaide on the 19th (details) >>

YOUNG MARCO (ESP, Rush Hour)

// TIME: 10PM – LATE
// TICKET INFO: 2nd release $25 + booking fee
// TICKET PURCHASE: Eventbrite

A graphic designer who moved to Amsterdam at the age of 18, Young Marco aka Marco Sterk started out as Rush Hour’s in-house designer some seven years ago, working on most of the Label’s sleeves. Over the years, however, Marco’s obsessions with digging and close ties with such people as the likeminded Tako Reyenga (of Red Light Records) led to a role in A&R with the label, searching out lost or forgotten records for reissue.

Collecting obscure and forgotten items is something Marco started doing as a teenager, experimenting with production on outdated computers donated to him by friends. As the years went on, Marco began collecting broken drum machines and 90s new age synthesizers and in 2010 released his first record on his now defunct Hand of God label. Over the last few years Marco has released tracks on Rush Hour along with two exceptionally well-received EPs for Lovefingers’ ESP Institute and a hotly anticipated debut album, ‘Biology’ this April. Marco has also remixed the likes of Soft Rocks, afro legend Francis Bebey, Heatsick and local wild man Michael Ozone

Renowned as a DJ who is likely to blend anything from the sounds of proto house, percussive gamelan, European synth oddities to Libyan disco anthems, Marco’s fascination with digging and noted ‘genre-free’ style coupled with the impressive ability to maintain the vibe and flow of a night makes Young Marco someone you don’t want to miss out on dancing to this April 17th.

This April 26 Animals Dancing are bringing back one of the great DJs of our time: Prins Thomas. For this special occasion, the Animals Dancing crew will be throwing a special day party in the unique indoor/outdoor surroundings of the Abbotsford Convent’s Shadow Electric band room.

PRINS THOMAS (Full Pupp, Internasjonal)

One of the leaders of the constant wave of talent coming out of Norway, Thomas set up his Full Pupp label in 2005 to harness this unique, local sound. Since its inception he’s been releasing some of the best ‘house-not-house’, ‘neo-disco’ or call it what you want dance music. Not content with solely focusing on Norway, Prins Thomas also started the Internasjonal label and the more recent Internasjonal Spesial offshoot, releasing sounds from heads like Secret Circuit, Hunee, Morgan Geist and Melbourne’s own Bell-Towers and Roland Tings. With well over 50 releases combined, Thomas has been a huge influence in pushing weird and wonderful dance music the world over.

Renowned as a DJ who combines new and old oddities with dance floor friendly sounds from yacht rock to techno, Thomas’ sets are immersive and entertaining, typified in his Cosmo Galactic Prism mix CD and Live At Robert Johnson contributions along with his constant touring schedule across the globe.

Production wise, Prins Thomas is one of the most in-demand remixers and has added his signature Tom Moulton style ‘diskomiks’ to all kinds of producers and bands. He has also frequently collaborated with fellow Norwegian Lindstrom, and released two solo albums and a multitude of singles and edits over his career.

The party will start 2pm and Prins Thomas will be playing an extended set through the Funktion One sound.

The Knocks Present: Stadium Status Volume Two

knocks status

Coachella is ALMOST upon us, and aside from bros wearing fanny packs and chicks with hairy armpits (trust me), that means there’s some damn good music on the horizon. And if you don’t already know, a lot of that music can be heard outside of the Polo grounds.

Every year (and more so lately, thanks to Coachella’s commercialization) the best parties happen poolside at hotels in the desert. This year is no exception, and NYC’s The Knocks–amongst a slew of other phenomenal acts–will be performing at one. T0 prep their fans at festival goers, the duo prepared a mix for Forty Seven Brand (the second in new installment).

Here’s the scoop:

Listen to Stadium Status Vol. 2, the second installment of ’47 Brand’s mixtape series. This time around, the mix was created for you by NYC boys the Knocks. You can definitely hear the Coachella in this mix even if you’re listening this Monday at work. This mix might help the weekend come a little quicker… enjoy, and see you in the desert!  The Knocks will also be performing at the Details x Hennessey x Lexus “Midnight” party on Friday night

And here’s lush tunage:

Oh yeah, this party doesn’t look too bad either–if bikinis and cold ones are your thing,:
