Just En [045]

Just En lives in Göteberg, Sweden and like many music makers from that far north region, has a taste for the bleak and mystical. His Sputnik EP was a treat to listen to and was a strong contributing factor to inviting him on for a Bomphcast. After listening to some of his mixes and hearing that the aesthetic of his production style was maintained in his mixes, we got excited about presenting his sounds to you.
His mix contains only music made by Swedes (except for a Rødhåd) remix and “definitely has a dark and winter vibe, something that is understandable when the daylight hours are so short, and people rarely see the actual sun”.

So ahead of you and including some of Just En’s own productions, is a truely authentic sound from the far north and the embodiment of a polar opposite state of climate.

Just En’s latest EP titled ‘Folds’ is out and can be heard via his soundcloud page.

Harold [035]

Harold BomphcastHarold is one alias of this local Melbourne DJ. His sound, as you will hear, is quite unique sporting inflections of 80’s synth lines, Detroit techno and modern house flavours all meeting in a satisfying and quirky way.
He’s currently out of town for the Cutting Room Ep tour, so keep posted via the Steeplejack Facebook page below for their gigs in various cities. When in Melbourne, he runs the club night,
¿Club D’érange? and also heads Steeplejack, essentially a label, but should also be considered a resource as that crew are putting out some very interesting and genre developing sounds.
So if you’re in Melbourne and wanting to hear these kinds of sounds, often with support of solid modular performances and straight up techno, keep a look out for the next ¿Club D’érange? night because that’s where it’s happening.

Jordan Peters [010]

Breaking into the double digits of Bomphcast’s hall of techno is the vinyl junkie, Jordan Peters.
Initially Jordan began with DJing, finding an affinity with vinyl, but he now indulges producing as well. This upbringing behind the decks has inset a strong sense of what makes a great track and this influence can be heard in his productions.Jordan-Peters

As a DJ, he’s supported Marcel Dettmann, Truncate, Jonas Kopp and Ø [Phase] as well as playing at the Subsonic Music Festival. He also hosts parties in Sydney via his event organization called Anomaly Events.

You run a series of parties in Sydney called Anomaly. What’s the concept behind Anomaly and what do you think these parties bring to the table that is unique in Sydney?

Anomaly was started with my mate Gareth Psaltis originally as a space for our friends to play, and evolved into a series of parties touring some of our favourite artists. I guess a unique element of Anomaly could be the sound you can hear at our parties – the main musical style is deep and trippy, where you can get lost in the music on the dancefloor. I’ve definitely found myself completely lost in the music at our parties seeing artists such as Rabih Beaini blending Gregorian chants, middle eastern vibes and pounding techno, or seeing Dino Sabatini transport a whole warehouse to somewhere deep in space with his multi-layered psychedelic techno.

 

What made you decide it was the right time to start running parties around the city? What have you learnt from putting these parties on?

Our first parties were illegal raves in forests on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, the logistics were crazy and after a big party got shut down early into the night we transitioned into predominantly club gigs in the city. After putting on parties in a number of different venues and spaces, you learn how all of the different elements of a night combine to make the party – location, sound, lights, visuals, artists running order, they’re all important elements to consider in creating the right flow and vibe for a night.

 

Where do you see Anomaly in a few years time and what have you got planned for the immediate future?
Anomaly will keep touring artists we love and bringing new faces to Australia. We’re working on some parties for the remainder of the year, nothing has been announced yet so keep your ears to the ground (aka www.facebook.com/AnomalyEvents).
What is your take on the techno scene in Sydney and how have the lock out laws affected it? Is there something that gets under your skin about the music scene in the city?

The lock out laws have affected not just techno, but every music scene in Sydney. The positive from this is there are enough passionate promoters / DJs / producers / punters that will continue bringing the music. I think whatever government restrictions are imposed there will always be a way around it to keep the music going; start parties earlier, move outside the lockout zones, find new spaces… We can hope the lockout laws will be abolished, but for now there are still great techno parties week in and out.
