Moontanned rises from the sunset to showcase rising stars in house and techno who show their passion for music, delivering a true journey for artists, DJs and guests alike. With Moontanned drawing inspiration from the illuminated night-time faces filled with energy and passion partying in the european summer, we aim to deliver an experience linking the artists and performers from the moment they enter a venue transformed into a space where they can express themselves freely. To celebrate the launch of Moontanned, we are bringing in some serious reinforcement from overseas and interstate!
*Retza* (All Day I Dream / Rework)
Hailing from Melbourne, Retza is a producer/DJ who’s had the underground heads listening, talking and following for the past couple of years. With several original releases and remixes under his belt 2014 was a breakout year for the bearded dynamo as his audience grew and his production and gig schedule increased dramatically.
Focusing on various forms of house and techno, Retza’s productions have been lauded by punters and peers alike for their depth and complexity, gaining support from the likes of Kasey Taylor, Lee Burridge, Uone, Jamie Stevens, YokoO and Steve Ward.
Well on his way to becoming Australia’s next big electronic music export, Retza’s success has been celebrated with prominent appearances at Rainbow Serpent Festival, CHI WOW WAH TOWN, as well as multiple interstate and international tours and a multitude of releases on various labels. With original and remix releases on All Day I Dream, Watergate Records and Lo-Fi 45, 2017 is set to be even a bigger year for Retza.
Over the last nine years Leigh Boy has worked vehemently at proving his worth as a major player in the Melbourne underground community. As a co-founder of the Record Label Techno community ‘Euphorie Bezirk’ his focus on electronica, experimental and melodic techno.
From house DJ’s Henry Saiz and Nico Stojan, Psychedelic virtuoso Shpongle, to techno heavyweights Boris Brejcha and Len Faki, Leigh Boy has supported a wide range of electronic music’s finest, both domestically (Chi Wow Wah Town, Strawberry Fields, Rabbits Eat Lettuce, Piknic Electronic and Electric Parade) and abroad during label tours in Ibiza and Barcelona.
Australia-based Jozef Conor is coming off the back of a great year. Capping off his 2016 with a recent move to Melbourne, he has managed to establish himself as a quality House music selector, showcasing original productions and local Australian labels along the way. As a DJ – his sound embodies the deep, driving, melodic House which has defined his latest production work, including his debut EP “Mazyte” on San Francisco’s “Carpe Noctem Inc.” Jozef has taken his sound abroad for the second year running, with performances in the Philippines (Carpe Noctem Inc. Label Showcase), the established Barcelona City Hall, and Ibiza representing Melbourne’s Recovery Collective. Inspired by the scene in Europe, he also launched the Moontanned series of parties – showcasing both local and international talent, with the Watergate Tour of Matthias Meyer and flying Melbourne label Euphorie Bizerk to Sydney to date.
His DJ escapades have covered a diverse range of Sydney and Melbourne music hubs, including S.A.S.H, WeLove, Revolver, Tramp, and Circus Melbourne, where he has supported for the likes of Matador, Matthew Dekay, East End Dubs, Wehbba, Ø Phase, and Paul Loraine. Having already penciled in dates in 2017 at “Babylon” Festival, as well as upcoming productions and continuation of the Moontanned parties – Jozef is definitely gaining momentum in the Australian techno scene as a diverse, risk-taking DJ with a fresh approach musically.
We hope you can join us come March 25th to celebrate the next edition of Moontanned!
