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 (ESP, Rush Hour)

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Collecting obscure and forgotten items is something Marco started doing as a teenager, experimenting with production on outdated computers donated to him by friends.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.
Young Marco – High Tide
Young Marco – In the Wind
Young Marco – Later Than U Think
Young Marco – Darwin in Bahia
Michael Ozone – Hetrotopia (Young Marco Remix)

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.
