April 10, 2021 @ 10:00 pm
Acts: Encrypter // Light Chaser // Zerotonine
VJ: A Comic Book Villain
Laser Highway is back for a late running synthwave sesh featuring a fan favourite that are making their IRL debut after some incredible performances online in 2020. We’re also finally bringing Encrypter back to the stage after a false start in COVID-World to sling you his synth-heavy tech-fusion stylings with a hybrid DJ/Live set! We’re also stoked to announce that the capacity of the venue has increased due to the Victorian Government announcement this week which gives folks a better chance to get the pre-sale tickets! That being said, tix will go fast, and we will still offer door sales to a reasonable volume on the night .THE LINEUP
Encrypter is a hardware-focused composer and producer of electronic music. Obsessed with texture and processing recorded sound since he was a teenager, capturing field recordings on his Walkman as fodder for creating garbled noisescapes through cheap guitar effects. In the years between then and now, he has released ambient, downtempo, industrial hardcore, electro, glitchy jungle, splittercore and a variety of takes on techno through his original works and remixes for the likes of Myler, Diarmaid O Meara and Weever.As a result of two burglaries and a stubborn refusal to back up his work, he has been forced to reboot his creative practice twice in a decade which has led to a current focus on recording tracks live with hardware or using unusual techniques like balanced feedback environments and generative composition to capture feelings of immediacy and energy. Elements of this style became the basis for the SEQARP label founded with fellow Irish synth junkie, Ikeaboy.
Expect techno originals and synthy classics in a fusion of DJ set and live hardware performance.
This selector has been deeply enveloping himself in the sounds of the future and yesterday to formulate a blockbusting set to rock your heart and move your body in a way you won’t forget.
Zerotonine is the host, resident DJ and runs Australia’s first and only monthly club night dedicated to synthwave, outrun and retro electro: Laser Highway in Melbourne. As a labour of love, he is dedicated to providing a unique experience for music makers and fans alike.
A veteran DJ and creator for over 15 years playing too many genres internationally and at home in Australia, he is in love with arpeggio 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, gated drums, 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.
