“Refraction, he called it. The way light is broken up into component colors when it passes through a prism. I felt like a refraction of a person. So many different shades that layer to create the illusion of a solid thing.

Line Up Announcement:
Rainbird (Bassic Records)
Deep in the jungles west of Byron Bay, a rainbird hatches, beginning it’s exploration and erudition of how music effects the brain in a collective environment – for instance, a dancefloor. Rainbird is a no boundaries experimental project, blending psychedelia with a fresh new age twist and heaving basslines with bouncy tendencies, falling somewhere in between bush techno, prog and IDM.
Known for playing some of the best sets of 2019 thus far, Rainbird is guaranteed to get your feet moving, your mind ticking and your heart smiling.
Azrin (Zenon Records/Unstable Sounds)
Some call him the psychedelic cowboy, others the master of darkness but we know the truth lies somewhere in between. A world renowned DJ, producer & darkness extraordinaire Azrin can be found on the industry leading record label, Zenon Records. Having buried himself deep within the psychedelic scene, he bursts to the surface with his own fusion of mind bending, twisted, psygressive. No matter the genre, Azrin breaks the mold with his everlasting energy, versatility and creativity behind the decks, showing the masses how deep the rabbit hole really goes!
Fresh off his Artist tour of Europe and the Middle East Azrin is geared up to present to you the finest Zenon and beyond has to offer.
Proudly supported by:
Jesse Kuch (Open Records)
Everyone’s favourite local legend, Jesse brings the funk every single time he steps behind the decks. Jesse is also the brains behind Open Records, once of Australia’s most successful Tech and Progressive imprints.
A stalwart of the Brisbane Techno and House scene, Butterz has been making unsuspecting clubbers and party goers loose their minds on the dancefloor for 18 years. Butters is also one fourth of the quartet behind Melt alongside Jesse Kuch, Apro and Wilma, a crew known for extreme decor set ups and some of the finest collection of events in the tech and house scene.
Mesq (Banyan Records)
Mesq is a forest creature existing in a symbiosis with a humanoid from Brisbane, Australia. Having been drawn to forest parties through an interest in ecstatic states of consciousness and ethno botanical plants in 2003, Mesq began to develop a passion for the type of deeply psychedelic trance that makes the forest come alive.
Influenced, in particular, by the psychedelic sounds of the Scandinavian Peninsula, mesq began collecting ‘forest music’ and producing ‘suomisaundi’ style psychedelic trance under the name Reality Pixie.
Vinny Xavier (Concepto Hipnotico / ESF Records)
