VJ: A Comic Book VillainRejoice as Laser Highway once again hosts a party that feeds your innermost deep, dark, and heavily synthetic musical desires! There’s been a long wait since we’ve been able to go full on into the dark side in real life, some might say too long – but no longer! Drinks, dancing, visuals, games, heavy beats, lasers – you know what to expect at one of our events. Pray to the dark synth gods, cultists – it’s our time now! THE LINEUP.
NEIL ORCHARDNeil etched out his musical path listening to the otherworldly sounds of obscure funk and European electronic music from the 70s and 80s. Exploring an array of sound archives from Belgium to Detroit and beyond, the physical journey continued though the steamy basements and factories of Melbourne’s rave scene of the 90s.
Playing recently at Techno Insurgency, Big Red Bus, and Earthcore, get ready for a sci-fi trip into a tapestry of dark, atmospheric, synth-heavy, analogue sounds. “For me, the mix is what counts, rather than specific tracks or genres. How can I sculpt something fresh out of old and new.sounds?”www.mixcloud.com/neilthetruthseekingprimate————————-
