SYNTHWAVE // DREAMWAVE // OUTRUN // RETRO ELECTRO // 80’S AND MORE FROM THE RETRO FUTURE
LIVE: The Euro Theatre (Disco Misco Album Launch)
DJs: Hysteric / Stray / Zerotonine
Laser Highway takes over Loop Project Space and Bar once again to host Australia’s only night dedicated to the very best anything-with-the-word-wav
We’ve powered through 2017 at our new with incredible sound, double the lasers, projection art, cocktail list, big screen multiplayer game space and an actual dancefloor (!!!) to transport you to your retro home away from home. We’ve prided ourselves on creating a radically inclusive alternative club night, to give you an experience that’s all about those thumping beats, synthesized basslines, the good times, a touch of nostalgia and camaraderie from your past, present and future friends that you haven’t yet met.
October is the month that Laser Highway goes back to its roots: neon lights, miami coastlines, palm trees, top-down convertibles and more A E S T H E T I C than you know what to do with. Is that even possible? Guess we’ll find out. Back by popular demand, The Euro Theatre will be performing live a selection of older instant classics and new cuts from his forthcoming album, Disco Misco. No strangers to the feel good retro sounds, we have DJ support in the form of legit 80’s hits from Stray, italo disco crate digger Hysteric and finger-on-the-pulse of all things retro electro Zerotonine!
THE EURO THEATRE (LIVE)
The Euro Theatre is a Synthwave artist based in Melbourne, Australia. The man behind this electro madness George Zois (aka King George in another rock dimension) debuted the project in 2016 spawning his most popular singles ‘Tribute’, ‘Promises’ (featured on We Rule Nation Channel), ‘Retro’ which was featured on New Retro Waves’ April 2017 Miami Cruising Mixtape and Snake (featured on New Retro Waves’ Facebook page). George also launched his live show format for The Euro Theatres’ 2016 ‘Believe’ Australian tour featuring his original tunes in sync with amazing 80’s and 90’s nostalgic visuals.
After spending most of this year in the studio The Euro Theatre returns to the stage to launch the debut album ‘Disco Misco’ playing Laser Highway @ Loop Bar.
If you know your Italo-disco, you would know George Hysteric. Famed for his vast vinyl collection of ’80s synthpop and disco obscurities, the Melbourne-based DJ has made crowds clamour on the dancefloors across Rotterdam, London, Vienna and beach parties in Italy.
Hysteric is also the man behind the Italo-disco label, Mothball Record. It’s themed CD mixes such as “Italo Estate” and the “Lost Treasures of Italo-disco” series, along with the infamous “Hot Girls of Italo-disco” and “Mothball Dance Classics” vinyl EPs (joining with Dutch label Bordello A Parigi) have now become highly sought-after rarities, having acquainted synth lovers with slamming Italo-disco gems that have remained unplayed since the early 1980s.
In ages past, Stray has fought to be at the forefront of funk, combining old-school electro and hip-hop into new-school breaks and beyond. Now, he turns his gaze back to the classic sounds of the legit and actual 1980s with a sprinking of newer synth styles to make your body rock. With over 10 years of experience in spinning, he is a master of mixology not to be missed!
Zerotonine is the host, resident DJ and runs Australia’s first and only monthly club night dedicated to synthwave, outrun, electro, italo-disco, and more from the retro future: Laser Highway in Melbourne. As a labour of love, he is dedicated to providing a unique experience for music makers and fans alike. He is also the co-host of www.kissfm.com.au‘s (FM band 87.6 in Melbourne) Retro Electro Show from 2pm Wednesdays AEDST.
A veteran DJ for over a decade playing too many genres internationally and at home in Australia, he is in love with arpeggiated basslines, warm synths, and driving drums; his style is inspired by 80’s movies, the Lamborghini Countach, boss fights, neon vectors, keytars, androids, reverb guitars, cosmic phenomena, bleeps and bloops. Expect a range of sonic styles to get your feet stomping and head rocking from all corners of the retro-verse.
