Featuring special guest Tred (E-Missions).
Local artillery from Consulate, Kait, kufatali & more TBA.
The Dublin based Rave Selekts boss and Techno & Cans resident’s rise to worldwide notoriety has been unprecedentedly quick but most definitely deserved. Since Tommy first emerged in 2017 he has flexed his production muscles in a big way, showcasing sounds across techno, hardcore/rave, jungle, electro and even club house stylings that has attracted the attention of big hitters like Dax J, Mall Grab, Nina Kraviz, Blawan and Mixmag, all of whom have touted him on the highest platforms. Having released on his own label Rave Selekts along with fellow Irish talent Casper Hastings to appearing on Dax J-spearheaded label Monnom Black’s first various artists compilation, Tommy Holohan’s “Skull Crushing Techniques” exhibit levels of musical maturity and production finesse far beyond his 21 years, taking different aspects of his adolescence in Rush and reimagining them in hybridised constructions of ambient, rave, techno, breakbeat and bass music DNA to birth an undeniably unique style that is garnering serious attention on an international scale. Keenly following up one of 2019’s most watched Boiler Room sets, we are more-than excited to invite Tommy to join us for his first ever Australian appearance.
Joining Tommy for our first dance of 2020 is a very special guest, Berlin-based Aussie heavyweight Tred (E-Missions). Beginning his journey co-producing the influential DIY Polyrhythmic parties in his hometown of Perth, hosting numerous influential international names in various warehouse spaces and acting as a vital incubator for the emerging young talent of the city, Tred has himself evolved into a highly regarded name on the international circuit, relocating to the German music capital and sharpening his high-tempo techno, ghetto and electro swords across it’s influential locations Berghain, Tresor and ://about blank, quickly being championed by the likes of Boris, Mama Snake, Ben Sims, Dave Clarke and Etapp Kyle to name but a few industry heavyweights supporting his ‘high power, deep emotion’ bangers.
