Astral People presents…
Moody-Town: Moodymann, Omar S, Wayne Snow & MORE
LIBERTY HALL CARPARK //
Astral People presents… MOODY-TOWN with Moodymann & Omar S (Detroit).
Two of club culture’s most fascinating characters. The enigmatic Moodymann and Omar-S return to Eora / Sydney to headline a heightened dance experience. Saturday 29th October - the first event to take place at the brand new Liberty Hall Carpark.
Bonafide originals - raw and unfiltered - proudly Detroit - proudly black. Two figures synonymous with ‘real’ underground house music.
Moodymann is a club heavyweight who has left an indomitable mark on the cultural sphere, fiercely doing things on his own terms. A key identity in Detroit’s ever affecting legacy - Moodymann would emerge amongst fellow luminaries such as Carl Craig, Theo Parrish and Rick Wilhite. His classic material is endless, the majority via his own cult DIY imprints KDJ and Mahogani Music. Diametrically opposed to today’s obsession with fast and overblown productions, he is committed to creating a subtle and distinctly black imprint on techno and house. For an artist who is vehemently underground in his approach, it is made all the more significant that he finds himself as a character in Grand Theft Auto or sampled by Drake. Proof that his music connects louder than the rat race that surrounds him.
Omar-S is another Detroit maverick. He leads the new generation of producers stamping his own unique sound on the city’s proud techno tradition. With a raw and brash sound - Alex Omar Smith is one of the last of his kind. While he may be a generation just under those aforementioned, he has equally built his own legend status. Just like Moodymann - he is 100% independent, releasing the majority of his work via his cult FXHE label. Since 2003 he’s been putting out strictly hardware made melters - from off-kilter dirty techno to exuberant vocal house; joints that dominate record bags across the planet. His music quite aptly reflects the trailblazer’s personality - no bullshit. Omar-S keeps coming at the music off different faces of the prism.
Rarified DJs that will leave a long lasting impression on your soul. They will take you there and bring you all the way back. Masters of the true craft of DJing, ready to lift you to higher places.
The heretics lead a monster billing of compelling figures that includes Nigerian born future-soul star Wayne Snow. An artist whose rise has been meteoric - having collaborated with artists as diverse as FKJ, Folamour, Max Graef and Neue Graffik, while releasing music via respected imprints like Tartelet, Dekmantel, Rhythm Section. Making his Australian debut, the now Berlin based artist will bring his contemporary twist of jazz-tipped, soulful grooves for a special live performance. Further complementing the bill are two of Eora / Sydney’s most notorious party authorities. Adi Toohey and Bria will warm the floor with superior clubbing know-how.
This event will take place on the lands of the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation. Astral People acknowledge their Elders past, present and emerging and pay their respect to all First Nations people. Always Was, Always Will Be.
