PROGNOSIS – White Night Special – February 21st @ LOOP

by J-Slyde


Prognosis February 2015 Eflyer

February 21st usher’s in our first Prognosis for 2015, and whilst that’s a pretty monumental occasion in itself it also happens to be the date of Melbourne’s White Night spectacular. One might say the pairing of the two is fate, others might say it’s due to Loop’s programming – whatever the case may be, we’re getting ready to put on one hellova’ party! Starting the evening a whole 2 hours early at 8pm, we’re doing all we can to ensure that Loop will be a safe haven for all of you prog and tech heads. It won’t matter if you’re already planning to head to White Night, or just keen on some quality beats; we’ll be at it from the get-go and we’ll be going all bloody night!

We knew we had to pull together something pretty special for this kind of occasion, so for headlining duties we welcome back none other than prog-kingpins Luke Porter and Soulfire – previously both UK based, the boys now call Melbourne home – which is kind of lucky for us because it means we get to see them a whole heap more!

Luke is widely renowned for his amazing skills behind the decks, playing some of the biggest clubs and festivals in the world. Accompanied by a slew of releases on some of the most highly regarded labels across the globe such as microCastle, Sudbeat and Lowbit – to name but a few.

Soulfire has been on the production front since early 2003, and with runaway success the man shortly thereafter launched his own label, Soulfire Downloads. Since it’s inception the label has boasted hard-hitting releases and remixes from the scenes most talented artists.

Support comes in the form of three hugely talented and indemand local artists that we’ve been trying to lock down for yonks! FLIP3K, Damir Smith and Jade May. Each bringing their unique styles to the decks, we will no doubt be in for a treat. Rounding things off in the residential area are J-Slyde and Aaron Static, with screen handling of Loop’s two 30ft screens by our resident visual mestro, vdmo Kstati.

Prognosis December Promo – Mixed by Andrew Wowk

by J-Slyde

andrew_wowkSydney residing, musically talented, all-round nice guy and one of our guest DJs for our December 20th edition of Prognosis, Andrew Wowk, has graced us with an expertly crafted promo mix in the lead up! It’s a seriously delicious affair that blurs the lines between deep melodic techno and progressive infused house – exactly the type of sounds we like to hear at Prognosis!

Here’s what Andrew had to say…
“I am lucky enough to be heading down to Melbourne to play at Prognosis on December 20th, so I put together a mix of some tunes I am liking at the moment that are relevant to the night. It’s not a “here’s all the stuff I’m going to play” type mix…it’s more of a snapshot of some of the things I’m enjoying at the moment that I think fit the Prognosis ethos. Hope you enjoy it!”


Head on over to Soundcloud to download and stream, and ensure your volume dial is set to MAX!

Prognosis August 2014 EFlyer

This August the gang down at Prognosis have decided to throw the hootenanny of all hootenannies. A grand spectacle no doubt and one for the record books with special guest Dylan Griffin headlining the occasion and making his Prognosis debut. The brains behind the successful AU Underground podcast series, key contributor at Subsonic plus a tour schedule that has seen him traveling around Australia and beyond, Dylan has been stamping his mark with his musical talents for nearly a decade. Even if he is originally from Sydney, you’ll be glad he made the move down to Melbourne when you sample his sonic offerings.

To accompany our headliner and to ensure the madness reigns supreme, the lads have invited some of their favourite regulars to play versus sets with the unruly residents. Already knowing each others musical tastes inside out, these versus sets are going to be a melting pot of ideas, inspirations and let’s face it, idiocy in unhealthy doses.

Mish’Chief, Melbourne’s first lady of staunch techno is first up as she graces the Loop stage to pick up where she left off (loud and in charge). Prognosis favourite, progressive kingpin Herc Kass will also be down with a whole new bag of tricks as his label FutureForm Music moves ahead in leaps and bounds. Darkbeat’s Dave Juric stops by on the back of support slots for some really famous blokes, flying the flag for the progressive resurgence the scene is seeing. The tallest man in showbiz, ridiculously talented production powerhouse Kultrun returns for a long overdue set and will prove once and for all that he isn’t a first class jerk. Rounding out the guest list is Alex David who has been keeping himself busy in the studio since his last slot, tweaking his sound and amassing a new legion of fans from his recent mixes.

The residents J-Slyde, Aaron Static and Simon Murphy have each picked a suitable target with whom they will be laying down tunes and are excited to mix things up from the regular formula to see what magic comes of it. Visual input will once again be provided by vdmo Kstati whose artistic genius rounds out the package perfectly.

Strap on your snow chains cos it’s gonna get slippery!!!
