nina las vegas word s / rk
Nina Las Vegas is a radio host, DJ, producer and all round local legend. A testament to those who can achieve prodigious success with countless levels of drive, talent and determination, her ability to seemingly blur the musical spectrum across genres, her selfless community work – as well as her boundless love of generally good music - stands her in good stead as one of Australia’s finest role models and inspirations for young people. So it began, after undertaking a work experience gig at triple j, she quickly excelled and now presents the House Party slot, prime time, Saturday nights at 6pm. Continuing to proudly break rules, she professes to a love of spreading the musical message without being tied to specific genres or styles. But even coming from a background in urban music - hip hop being her great love – her output on any given day might be laced with dub, electro or even something more poppy or electronic. It’s funny how in the music business like life, one thing leads to another – and certainly for this girl, it has been a career (so far) tempered by meaningful triumphs. “I’d been working as a DJ for ages,” says Nina. “I’d started out doing different things like putting on parties and working behind the scenes and things; then the opportunity came up to present House Party and I put a demo together and have really just pushed on with it.” Somewhere in between, she also helped foster an important community project with DJ Andrew Levins and superstar Diplo titled Heaps Decent. “Basically we try and give something back to the community; we run music workshops and things like that. It’s a not for profit organisation so we work with marginalised communities, indigenous children and so on. It’s something I’ve wanted to do forever and it’s something that it very, very rewarding.”
then at the same time I’m inspired by my surroundings and DJs who really push boundaries.” Likewise, expect some of that inspiration to make its way onto the second House Party compilation she is working on right now. “It’s going to reflect the next phase of my life,”
she says. Expect it to raise some eyebrows again – but also expect that punters will lap it up, just like they did edition one. No less, that first House Party compilation – a double CD - features some 35 tracks and covers multiple genres from dancehall, hip hop, dub and electro. Likewise, she admits sending out a massive wish list – much of which got cleared, which meant in turn that her dreams were answered; and justifiably so, because her musical diversity is her competitive advantage. “You can hear anything from Skrillex to Frank Ocean in one of my sets - and probably plenty in between,” she proclaims with pride. “There’s really this gap in the market place I think for music that doesn’t fit a mould.” And while it might be an acquired taste, her approach has won her the adoration of many a fan around the country and no doubt the world.” Yet despite all of this, the future for her shows plenty of promise. “I want to go into promoting and things,” she chimes. “But at the same time I don’t want to think too...” Indeed, playing club music – or even music that is more challenging or forward thinking–is her very raison d’être. “I want to play music that everyone can enjoy but I also want people to get on board when it’s a little different.”
Nina Las Vegas plays at Anyway at the Palace this Saturday July 13. She’ll also be playing at Steresonic and the sold-out Splendour In The Grass. facebook.com/ninalasvegas soundcloud.com/ninalasvegas

Musically, she claims it is the sounds she listens to that most influences her. “The old and new tracks I play on the radio show, really translate into what I play when I’m out,” she explains. “But

Dubstep Australia and Riot are coming together to bring down Spain’s freshest acts to Melbourne. With tracks like Elekktroshokk and Kill Humans setting their fan base alight with excitement, Dubsidia are best known for their energetic sets and their long line of remixes. With imminent plans to collaborate with Moby and their production receiving support from the likes of Borgore and Skrillex, this may be the last chance fans get to see Dubsidia in such an intimate setting. It’s all happening at Tetris Studios on Saturday July 20.
pangaea Kevin McAuley began making music with a two-track mixer, a keyboard and a tape deck as a schoolboy. Discovering dubstep through the sounds of Mala in the backroom of a Leeds club in 2005, Kevin was inspired to start the city’s first dubstep night, Ruffage, and launched himself into the studio. He’s built a burgeoning reputation as a true pioneer behind the decks supported by the likes of Mary Anne Hobbs who described his recent mix for BBC Radio 1 as “texturally one of the most exquisite mixes of the year”. Pangaea’s sound however is difficult to tie down. While there are distinct house and techno influences his music is firmly rooted in the traditions of UK bass as are his DJ sets. It’s all happening at Brown Alley on Friday August 9.
that sound agency
That Sound Agency, conceived by Rueben Heenan and Daniel Lamanna, is a local talent agency mainly focusing on DJs and producers of the new phenomena that has spread all over the world, the Melbourne Sound. The aim of the agency is to shine light on young local talent and give them that break that they may not usually have had. With the agency launching in around two weeks the boys are incredibly excited to get their teeth stuck into it, and push to get their artists local, regional, interstate and eventually even international gigs. They said with the immense talent of the boys on their rosters, it won’t be hard. To check out what the boys are all about, and check out all the artists and their music, head to thatsound.com.au.

Sydney’s Alison Wonderland has just dropped her first original track, Get Ready featuring Blue Mountains duo, Fishing and to celebrate the momentous occasion she’s hopping on tour. Kicking off things with her set at Splendour In The Grass, Alison Wonderland is set to hit everywhere in Australia she can, from Bendigo, Wagga Wagga and every other city in between. Get Ready has been a long time coming ever since bursting onto the scene as a partystarting DJ. Classically trained with her roots in bass and cello, original production was naturally her next step after receiving praise for her DJing from the likes of Annie Mac. Having already performed DJ sets at the official Grammy’s After Party and the Brit Awards After Party, it is little wonder that Alison Wonderland has been staple on the local festival circuit. Make sure to head down to The Corner on Thursday September 19.

steampunk dj omega Where’s the strangest place you’ve woken up? I’ve woken up in Rome on New Year’s day, obscenely early because of jet-lag. We walked the streets looking for breakfast and it was like a scene from a post apocalyptic movie - the streets deserted and full of post-party wreckage. It was a surreal experience! Describe yourself using the title of a song. Left of Centre - Susanne Vega The most awkward moment you’ve had as a DJ? The day I got out of hospital with my (now two-year-old) daughter, I got a panicked call from a friend whose DJ had cancelled at the last minute. I swooped in to the rescue, bringing my newborn daughter with me. At one stage during the evening I was working the decks and breastfeeding the baby in the sling at the same time. She slept through most of the gig and the party went off. All’s well that ends well! What would be the worst dance track in the world to be tortured with on repeat? Anything with screaming or hateful lyrics. What’s the most played record in your bag? A Slight Case of Overbombing - The Sisters of Mercy. Someone always, always asks for something on it. What question would you like to ask an omniscient, allknowing being before you die? So, how do I get around this whole ‘death; thing, then, eh? If you hadn’t made it as a DJ, what job would you choose to work in instead? I got told by a teacher long ago that the only job in which I would get paid to talk as much as I like to was in PR and Marketing and that has proved to be very true! When and where is your next gig? I’ll be working the main stage at A Night of Intrigue, a dark culture festival at RMH The Venue on Friday July 12. Can’t wait!

F.I.R was his first release on Keinemusik became a club anthem instantly and it was only a taste of things to come.

ghost rider word s / rk
The Ghost Rider project is the brainchild of Vlad Krivoshein, who hails from Israel, the world’s breeding ground for psychedelic trance. As a youngster, the entire dance movement - and all it stood for - impressed him. And with that, he has used the music to capture emotional soundscapes in a way that has won the hearts and minds of many a fan. “It just so happens that my parents sent me to music school when I was a child in my native Russia – that’s really how it all began,” he explains. “I was born there and then we moved to Israel about 22 years ago. I have been back there too. For example, last year I was in Moscow at a gig. While the trance scene there is not so big – it is just starting – there is definitely a very nice energy for sure.
a night of intrigue word s / rk
Michael Nero is a fair chunk of the brains behind a new event destined to make waves in Melbourne soon, called Intrigue. Being billed as ‘A Festival of Dark Culture’ the man wants to create an event that steers clear of the commercial mediocrity that pervades much of Melbourne’s albeit eclectic and cosmopolitan nightlife and culture. In his-own words, ‘this is something that has to be a game-changer.’ “I sat down and partnered with my close friend and DJ, Omega Howell and we researched a lot about the international festivals and things that go on,” he explains. “With that, we contemplated creating something in Australia that has to be a game-changer.”
Of course in Israel we have a lot of parties and clubs, but maybe less open air festivals.” Indeed, being inspired by different genres of dance music over the years – including artists like Armin Van Buuren and Tiësto - Krivoshein enjoyed taking the next step and moving into production and performing live. “I was experimenting with all different styles of music until I settled on psytrance and progressive trance,” he says. “But for me, for sure I wainted to push to make music that was basically club trance.” And that has been his raison d’être ever since. “I’ve just come back from a big June tour,” chimes Krivoshein. “It was really a crazy month; I was in Switzerland, Mexico, Germany, Italy and Brazil - and the rest.” Importantly too, this week marks a special moment in his life for another reason – the release of his debut album Complextro. “That’s right,” he professes proudly. “My first LP is coming out on Blue Tunes Records and is the result of almost two years of hard work!” Complextro, literally defined as a dynamic and complex musical arrangement, reflects the nature of the work he has undertaken and accordingly, he felt it apt to lift the term for his own use. And with it, he had created a masterstroke of dark if not grand and progressive, psytrance. No less, he describes his approach to his music as particularly unrefined and ad-hoc. “I don’t really have a particular approach,” he says. “I like to make music that I can see; I try to keep things new and creative – I like to do things at a maximum level.” Previously, he had released two EPs in 2012 on the highly regarded and prolific Danish label, Iboga Records. Further, he released The Ghost Rider EP and the Shock Therapy EP on Echoes Records, followed by Time Ghost as well as a number of compilations. With the studio being his greatest love, the man isn’t too fussed about not having any major pursuits outside of music. “Really, today I don’t have a lot of free time so my life is pretty much based in the studio or at gigs around the world.”
“We’d done events together before,” he explains. “But this time we wanted to do something from left field, really different. So the event is called Intrigue – and with it, we’re inviting talent, we’re inviting fun and we’re giving people, regardless of who they are, the opportunity to do something fantastic.” As a festival of dark culture and the crew is looking at covering all bases from goth to punk, right through to industrial and fetish. “At the venue, we’ll give each area a dedicated space; there will also be a number of DJs performing as well as Omega Howell, and other sideshows of a varying nature.” Likewise, having been involved in the goth community in Melbourne for over ten years, Nero is well placed to be creating an event of this scale and nature. He admits too, that even though events like this have been held before, it has never been on the same epic scale as this. “We planned on doing the event at the Royal Melbourne Hotel.” he says. “There was a night on Friday there some time back that used to be packed out for years. For us, it’s not necessarily about trying to redo that, it’s about ensuring we can continue to celebrate the different art cultures that exist in Melbourne. Whether it’s gothic, punk, fetish or whatever - we thought we’d bring everyone together into to do an event that is going to be called the Flash Mob Festival! “The one thing with the dark community in Melbourne, if I can call it that, is that it attracts people with talent! Whether it’s people in costume or fire twirlers or those who can juggle or perform in the arts – we wanted to invite people into a space to allow them the freedom of expression. To be honest, we don’t know how it’s going to go so we hope those people can come and show us! The idea will be to provide patrons with a voting chip and ask people to hand their chips to their favorite performer – those with the most chips get
But that sells him a little short: to suggest he has no other pursuits would suggest that his musical pursuits aren’t all consuming, or perhaps not where he wants to be – they are. He goes on to describe two other musical projects he is involved in: “Other than Ghost Rider which is my production and stage name, I also do another musical project with a dear friend of mine, Ranji from Project Dapanji – that is called Class A. And then there is my other solo project called Magneto. I plan to do an EP with three or four solo tracks as Ghost Rider on Iboga Records – and then a number of EPs ready for the Class A project called Classic, Boarding Complete and Ready for Take Off. I have also done some remixes for artists like Ritmo and Symphonix as well.” Finally, the man is looking forward to getting back to Australia for the second time this year. “The last time I was in your amazing country was in February and I have to say it was awesome! So to be coming back a second time is fantastic because I have the opportunity to play the Complextro album as well as a lot of new stuff I will produce following the album. I really like to play my sets live so that I can really present my music the way it was created to be. I look forward to seeing you!”
Ghost Rider plays at the Earthcore 20th Anniversary alongside Ace Ventura, Captain Hook, Perfect Stranger and more, which takes place from Friday November 29 - Sunday December 1 at a yet to be disclosed location in country Victoria. facebook.com/ghost.rider.official soundcloud.com/ghostrider
to be invited back and featured at our next event.” Musically he adds too, that the setup will be very broad. “We will have a room dedicated to industrial and dubstep sounds, something that’s more modern and electronic and then something with more of an ‘80s or ‘90s theme. It’s really something we want to leave open to interpretation – but as long as the theme is dark, we’ll be happy. From there the current plan is to host the event bi-monthly but as well as that, we want to take it nationally in September, which will be really exciting. We’ve also got an international act booked which we’re hyped about – and we hope to bring in an international act once a month after that, so it will end up being a huge project.” So the reality is that no one knows exactly what’s going to happen on opening night. “That’s the best part,” he notes. “The night will feature a main stage when we’ll have the band Dandelion Wine; we’ll have a belly dancer as well – but in all, we expect to have five or six different areas with music that ranges from industrial and electronic, to goth and punk. We will also have some chill-out spaces and a market – it should be a lot of fun and spectacularly entertaining!”

the d.y.e Following the success of DJ Marshall’s Summer of Love party which welcomed in the warmer months, Melbourne’s Streetcredit Productions are back with their next installment: DJ Marshall’s Winter Wonderland, to be held at 303, Northcote on Friday July 12. Featuring some of Melbourne’s finest upcoming rhyming talent, expect the beers to be flowing as we welcome in the colder months showcasing The D.Y.E, The Fourfront, Newdub City Sound, Defron and Rudy V. Since pumping out a fat set at Push Over ‘13, headliners The D.Y.E, will be serving up some brand new winter warming tracks. The illustrious host, DJ Marshall has alluded to the fact that Santa Clause himself may even make an appearance. If the last D.Y.E show at 303 is anything to go by, Marshall will be up to his old tricks giving free drinks to the first 50 through the door in true Yuletide spirit. Merry Christmas in July and a happy financial new year!
