February 21st usher’s in our first Prognosis for 2015, and whilst that’s a pretty monumental occasion in itself it also happens to be the date of Melbourne’s White Night spectacular. One might say the pairing of the two is fate, others might say it’s due to Loop’s programming – whatever the case may be, we’re getting ready to put on one hellova’ party! Starting the evening a whole 2 hours early at 8pm, we’re doing all we can to ensure that Loop will be a safe haven for all of you prog and tech heads. It won’t matter if you’re already planning to head to White Night, or just keen on some quality beats; we’ll be at it from the get-go and we’ll be going all bloody night!
We knew we had to pull together something pretty special for this kind of occasion, so for headlining duties we welcome back none other than prog-kingpins Luke Porter and Soulfire – previously both UK based, the boys now call Melbourne home – which is kind of lucky for us because it means we get to see them a whole heap more!
Luke is widely renowned for his amazing skills behind the decks, playing some of the biggest clubs and festivals in the world. Accompanied by a slew of releases on some of the most highly regarded labels across the globe such as microCastle, Sudbeat and Lowbit – to name but a few.
Soulfire has been on the production front since early 2003, and with runaway success the man shortly thereafter launched his own label, Soulfire Downloads. Since it’s inception the label has boasted hard-hitting releases and remixes from the scenes most talented artists.
Support comes in the form of three hugely talented and in demand local artists that we’ve been trying to lock down for yonks! FLIP3K, Damir Smith and Jade May. Each bringing their unique styles to the decks, we will no doubt be in for a treat. Rounding things off in the residential area is J-Slyde and Aaron Static, with screen handling of Loop’s two 30ft screens by our resident visual mestro, vdmo Kstati.
