We haven’t been able to secure any international guests over the past couple of years due to [REDACTED] – so when the opportunity arose to get TWO of ’em on the same night, refusing was not a valid option. If you have been hanging out on our Twitch streams, you’d no doubt be familiar with Hungarian producer Megahit both in chat and the music heard. Not to be pigeonholed into one style, his original productions effortlessly cross between cyberpunk, outrun, action movie themes, video game inspired and covers and sci-fi. It’s been a long while since he graced our stage in 2018, so we cannot think of a better time than now to have him back.
Our second international guest is a Melbourne native, but UK based and has always brought a smile to people’s faces and their dancing shoes fiercely tapping! A well traveled and broad sparkly tastes from 80s gems, italo and more modern synth hits, if you’ve never heard her selections IRL before, please don’t miss out this time.Laser Highway parties are safe and radically inclusive events for people of all walks of life.
We’re dedicated to presenting the nano-wire edge of alternative electronic music: soft, hard, light or dark. We take inspiration from nostalgia, fantasy, science-fiction, video games and more with high production values and a robust visual style in splashes of vibrant sound and colour. We encourage our patrons to express themselves in however they feel comfortable as long as it does not infringe on the rights of others. Tech-wearables, cool (safe) props and all the neon LEDs, EL Wire and clothing encouraged.
MEGAHIT (HUNGARY)MEGAHIT is a synthwave / retrowave style musical project, heavily influenced by 1980s action movies, video games, and dystopian cyberpunk literature. A dancefloor-oriented audiovisual experience that combines retrofuturistic tropes with modern music production, and a touch of industrial and cinematic soundscape.MEGAHIT started his synthwave journey in 2015. After two EPs he became a returning contributor to the Hungarian Synthwave Allstars charity compilation. In 2016 he released his first breakthrough album Days Of Violence, and managed to get featured on NewRetroWave, the biggest synthwave promotion channel on YouTube. His second album Wrath Of The Machine saw his first physical distribution on CD and cassette tapes, and was sold out in a month after release. In 2019 he released his third studio album Not Your Action Hero, which gained a great traction on streaming platforms, and was received with critical acclaim from the underground synthwave scene. His most successful track to date, Late Night Boss Fight was released by the American label FiXT Neon in 2020 as part of a cyberpunk themed compilation. In 2022 he was hired to create the official soundtrack of Without Judgement, an indie-developed open world cyberpunk video game by Wushin Software.https://www.megahit.hu————————-
