Prognosis ~ Feb 18th @ Loop

by J-Slyde

Prognosis - Feb 18th

Coming off the end of a most successful year Prognosis are getting set to usher in 2012 the only way they know how – hot beats, good times and a shitload of PROG!

Headlining festivities for this edition are Chris Meehan and The Chunky Fuckers.

Somewhat of a legendary figure in prog-circles around town, Chris Meehan has done it all – from holding residencies at some of Melbourne’s most influential and successful club nights (Qbar Sundays, Republic @ Room 680), through to supporting major international guests such as Sasha, Digweed, Satoshi, Hernan, Seamen and Nick Warren. Representing brands such as global Underground and Renaissance whenever in town, Chris is well respected by his peers and punters and not only recognized as a true DJ, but also a highly accomplished producer, with recent releases on Avante Garde, Baroque and Movement Records, to name a few.

Stalwarts in the Melbourne prog scene, The Chunky Fuckers (Jayson Holden and Herc Kass) are well versed in all that is funky and driving. Not just DJ’s however, the boys are extremely talented on the production tip, and with third member in tow, Adam Holden, they have had a bevvy of releases out on Underground City, Polytechnic, Movement recordings, Overground Digital and Indigo. Needless to say, when they hit the decks for a 2 hour feature set – mayhem is set to ensue!

On support duties, we’re very excited to welcome newcomer to the decks – Thomm Brooke. Always on the lookout for fresh and interesting talent, our ears were pricked when we heard his latest promo mix. Not intent on letting such talent go to waste in the bedroom, we’ve managed to convince him to come down and open up proceedings with his mix of deep and sublime beats.

Residents J-Slyde, Simon Murphy and Aaron Static will also be in tow – bringing to the table their usual blend of upfront prog and tech tunes.

With our two resident VJs on a break, visual duties for this edition will be handled by the extremely talented aka Richard De Souza. One of Melbourne’s, if not Australia’s, most talented visual artists, Richard has done them all – Big Day Out, Summadayze, Parklife, along with visual production on Ministry Of Sound commercials, and much much more. To say we’re in good hands would be an understatement!

Prognosis December Flyer

One year on from their first event under the Prognosis banner, with no sign of slowing down, the krew are getting set to celebrate the only way they know how – hot beats, tasty beverages, and shenanigans a’plenty!

Intent on doing something special for such a momentous occasion, we couldn’t think of a better artist to headline and celebrate Prognosis’ first birthday than NYC protégé come Melbourne beat wizard, PQM. With a DJ and production career that dates back to the early 90’s, PQM has a vast musical knowledge that will no doubt be used to good measure. With the opportunity to flex his musical muscles over a two hour feature set, PQM is set to delve into his extensive collection of tunes to deliver a set of truly epic proportions.

After turning the FB world green with envy over his international exploits, local trance favourite Jed returns from overseas and will be stepping up to the plate to play his first ever ‘non-trance’ set. As part of Rush with events pushing techno and progressive alongside trance, Jed is well versed in the sounds that will no doubt whip Loop into a frenzy.

Substance kingpin and crowd favourite Taran M returns from quasi-retirement to get amongst the lunacy as he lays down the sweetest of beats and other tasty treats from his repertoire. Rounding out the night will of course be the Prognosis residents J-Slyde, Simon Murphy and Aaron Static. Expect the unexpected as the three continue their musical missions into melodic madness.

No Prognosis would be complete without captivating, hypnotizing visuals which will once again be provided by Vdmo Kstati. With a booking schedule jam packed with festival and club events, the forever growing arsenal at this VJ’s disposal will ensure the night has an extraordinary audio visual feast!

PROGNOSIS @ Loop ~ 15th October

by J-Slyde

Prognosis - October 15th Flyer

After a MASSIVE night in August which saw a full club treated to an evening packed full of audio visual treats, this October sees the Prognosis crew head back to Loop to write the next chapter in their musical journey. A night not to be missed, the crew is once again set to explore the full spectrum of the progressive genre.

Prognosis welcomes back Darkbeat stalwart and Mink resident, Dave Juric, to lay down a fine selection of tunes from a genre that has long been aligned closely with the Melbourne scene. Playing alongside Prognosis resident J-Slyde, the two aficionados will delve deep into their collections to serve up a progressive breaks feast. Playing back-to-back, the two will take a look back at some of the tunes and artists that helped build the once thriving scene and acted as a catalyst in putting Melbourne on the global progressive map.

Joining them on the night is progressive house wunderkind Rysh Paprota whose highly acclaimed production and remix skills have seen him in high demand. Producer, DJ and front man of Budgie Collective online radio station, Square Eyes will be down to treat us to a showcase of his sound. Also along for the ride is Alex Butler who will be channeling the dusty dance-floors of the festival world as he packs a bag-load of tougher progressive weapons and gets ready set to unleash some musical mayhem.

Of course, no Prognosis event would be complete without the musical stylings of resident tune addicts Simon Murphy and Aaron Static, who will once again treat their audience to a captivating blend of the finest tunes on offer. Captivating crowds at some of Australia’s most highly regarded events with his artistic wizardry, vdmo Kstati is set to lay down the visual aspect of the night.

Prognosis ~ Aug 20th @ LOOP

by J-Slyde

Prognosis August 20th EFlyer

Back at Loop for their bi-monthly edition, the Prognosis krew are gearing up for yet another prog-fueled party of legendary status! Gaining quite a notorious reputation amongst underground EDM circles, not only for the quality of music at their events, but also for the fantastic vibe and up-for-it crowd, Prognosis are set to host one of their largest events to date!

Headlining the festivities, Dean Millson, front man of the Private Function parties and one of the crew behind Pretty Simple at Ffour, joins us for a smathering of all things progressive. Playing a key part in the flourishing Melbourne prog scene of the early 2000’s, Dean has been a stalwart in Melbourne’s local underground scene for quite some time. With a keen nod towards his roots, whilst delving deep into his vast record collection, Dean is set to offer up what will no doubt be a set full of old-school flavours along with newer cuts of the highest quality. Known for his precise mixing ability and vast knowledge of all things progressive, we couldn’t think of better hands to be in!

Alongside Dean, we are also extremely excited to welcome two of sunny Queensland’s most finest beat purveyors, Travis Lucas and Dan Mada.

Frontman of Qld based production company Involved, Travis has been leaving his mark across the sunny Gold Coast and Brisbane for the past few years. Not just restricted to Oz, he’s toured and performed the world over – from supporting Carl Cox at Fabric in London, to more recently entertaining the Japanese massive in Osaka and beyond. His unique approach to music has seen him in high demand on a truly global scale.

Adding to the madness, and definitely a case of saving the best till last, Dan Mada, another key member from the Involved krew, will bring his unique blend of house and summery vibes to cold ol’ Melbourne.

Visual duties will yet again be handled by the highly talented VJ PiedPiper, projecting onto two 20ft screens throughout the venue for the entire night.

Auditory prog-support will be handled by the mischievous Prognosis trio: Aaron Static, Simon Murphy and J-Slyde.
