CHANNELS TO WATCH:
Obelia Waxwing – 6 pm – 7 pm
Formed in the summer of 2019, Australian based electronic duo Obelia Waxwing offer a distinctive pairing of the ethereal vocal harmonies and ominous soundscapes of producer and vocalist Rebecca Williams with the gritty yet lush beats of producer Dermot Seller (?Hollywood Real Thoughts?).
Submerging listeners deep into an ocean of fragmented machinery, celestial synths and impending subs, Obelia Waxwing draw influence from the trip hop great’s of the 1990’s (Portishead, Massive Attack, Bjork) all the way to the post-club electronic pioneers of the 2010’s (Arca, Andy Stott, Lapalux).
Hollywood Real Thoughts 7 pm – 8 pm
Known for vast electronic soundscapes expanding everything from ambient and glitch to hip hop and house, Hollywood Real Thoughts is the musical project of Melbourne music producer and DJ Dermot Seller.
Since releasing his debut self titled EP in 2014, Hollywood Real Thoughts has gone on to perform frequently around Melbourne; releasing a further 3 EP’s, 4 singles and one full-length LP and co-founding local labels 56k Records and Reverse Shadow Records.

‘This packs buzz and fuzz in equal amounts. I like what this band’s about.’
