This summer the electronic music lovers of Perth are about to experience something very special.
Electric Gardens brings you a monster sideshow to kick-start your Australia Day Weekend celebrations.
One of the biggest musical influences in the electronic music scene over the last 20 years.
He has defined a generation of music lovers, from his legendary 250,000 person Big Beach Boutique event in the UK. Headlining festivals globally including Rio’s Flamingo Beach to 360,000 fans, whilst producing more than one of the most iconic dance music albums of the last two decades…ladies and gentlemen Mr Norman Cook AKA…
Why should the people of West Australia miss out? Not this time.
James Zabiela is a rare breed of artist owing to his unrivalled technical abilities in his live performance which have cemented him into the hearts of electronic music lovers the world over. Having served over 12 years with a ‘We Love…Space’ residency, James regularly visits Australia thrilling fans with his wizardry behind the decks.
Their names are Superpitcher and Rebolledo, together they are Pachanga Boys, and they are trying to make the world a better place with their Hippie Dance. The Pachanga started with underground hits such as “Power” and “Fiesta Forever” on Kompakt’s annual Total compilations, but steadily the good news spread far and wide, and the Pachanga Boys’ DJ sets became one of the hottest tickets on the European music scene and all over the world, including a legendary set for Robot Heart at Burning Man.
Soon the boys launched their label, Hippie Dance, home to instant classics like “Black Naga” and the enormous crossover 15 minute hypnotic smash, “Time” which came in as one of the Top 50 tracks on Resident Advisor in 2012. It’s here they also dropped the album “We Are Really Sorry” and a collection of weird and wonderful collaborations, short films and other exploits. They are Aussie favourites and we are always prepared to move heaven and earth for their arrival!
Robot Heart Burning Man legends the Pachanga Boys will be playing the all important warm up set as the sun drops over the stunning Red Hill venue on Friday January 22. This is scheduled for 7.24pm (OK we take this stuff quite seriously…) followed by James Zabiela and then Fatboy Slim to close.
Electric Gardens has chosen the stunning Red Hill Auditorium for this landmark event.
Settled within the John Forrest National Park with sweeping views over the ocean and city, it’s the largest purpose built outdoor concert venue in Western Australia.
With a capacity of 5000 this is an intimate mini-festival where everyone sees the show…and did we mention the sound?
The all important component of electronic music.
We’re bringing in the best sound system you’ve ever heard for a show like this. Red Hill was the venue chosen by the heavy metal outfit Def Leopard – need we say any more?
This Australia Day Weekend will be the pinnacle of the summer with the promise of more acts to be announced…
These days, Cook’s show involves not just playing his own patented brand of “party acid house”, but a complex audio-visual production. “I’m technically a video jockey now. We write scripts for all the tunes, make films.
In the past, I used to have to literally hold up the next record I was going to play to the guy who does my visuals, and he’d have to find the images to match it. And they were never synched. But now, because of the technology, no matter what speed I play at, even if I just chop quickly into it, the visuals are all synchronized. It’s a show.”
