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!!!

PROGNOSIS – June 15th @ LOOP

by J-Slyde

Prognosis June 15th Eflyer

Well, well, well… what do we have here then? Another stacked lineup brought to you by the musically intoxicated folk down at Prognosis HQ by the looks of it. A healthy dose of progressive spliced with a metric fcukton of techno? Perhaps even a hint of house and disco on the menu? Rightio then kiddies, carry on…

And carry on we will! With all the makings of another shenanigan filled evening, musical stylings will be provided by a troop of auditory aficionados ready to tell their story through song*.

Back on deck after a stellar debut earlier this year, Rich Curtis will be delivering the smooth sounds that have seen him in demand across Australia and the globe. A prolific producer with a slew of releases on some of the biggest labels in the game, Rich’s DJ sets are not to be missed.

Gabe Gilmour makes his highly anticipated Prognosis debut which will no doubt be something special. Having mastered his craft whilst DJing and running events in Canberra, Gabe has received critical acclaim from promoters and punters in Australia and beyond. A true craftsman with a deep passion for his music, Gabe’s music will instantly find a welcome home amongst the Prognosis crowd.

Kultrun is another returning guest who realistically needs no introduction. Production skills that leave many for dead, releases that show his depth musically which have received props from some of the biggest names in the scene and DJ sets that have attracted high praise, Melbourne lad Kultrun will deliver once again.

The funkiest chuckers in town have got the band back together for an exclusive Chunky Fuckers set. We’ve missed their on stage supremacy that has turned the Prognosis dancefloor on its head multiple times. Add in residents J-Slyde and Aaron Static who have both been amassing huge numbers of fans across the globe with their mixes and have continually dealt feet seeking missiles across Melbourne and we really are in for a treat. VJ Pied Piper will be leading the children of the night with his visual wizardry. Entry is free so resistance is futile!

*Note: Microphones are strictly banned. We trust their taste in tunes but vocal stylings are discouraged with swift retribution for those who disobey.

Prognosis ~ April 16th @ LOOP

by J-Slyde

Substance Sounds in conjunction with LOOP pres the newest concept in forward thinking nightlife!
Prognosis - April 16th @ LOOP

With two successful events under their belts the Prognosis krew are lining up for their third offering back at Loop. Yet again partying until stumps, their last event was nothing short of brilliant. Quality music, eye opening visuals and a fantastic crowd made for a fool-proof recipe. Not missing a beat, the krew were quick to lock-in a third date and are getting ready to do it all over again come April 16th.

Leading the charge this time round we’re very honored to welcome Melbourne’s own Prog pinup, Steve May. Having been play-listed by everyone from Tiesto to Carl Cox, Steve’s production is world class. Not just limited to his productions, as a DJ he has championed a versatile and genre-bending sound headlining shows across the globe.

After a mind blowing performance at our first event we’re also very happy to welcome back JaseFOS for a live Laptop set. If you haven’t seen his mastery of all things electronic then you must take this opportunity by the horns! Responsible for “that track” and producing, releasing, DJing and performing for the past 15+ years, Jase is a seasoned veteran when it comes to electronic music. Needless to say, the dancefloor will be in good hands when he graces the decks!

Delivering his fresh twisted take on everything electronic, Kultrun also joins the ranks to bring his unique production style to the floor. Guaranteed to have you stroking your chin whilst madly bopping all over the floor, this kid has had his work play-listed by everyone from Dubfire to MODE and even Armin Van Burren. Expect a set full of the highest caliber home-grown Prog and Tech you can poke a stick at!

Alas, it’s not all rainbows and unicorns this time round as Taran M is set to deliver one of the last sets of his career. The original inceptor of Substance and Co-founder with J-Slyde, the man is hanging up the Electronic promoting and djing booty’s indefinitely as he heads off to Alaska to hunt wild game using only a toothcomb and a Denny’s Breakfast burrito (Actual events of Taran’s future may differ from written dialog). Having played pretty much every electronic genre, graced major parties like Two Tribes, Godskitchen, Adventjah, major club residencies and of course running a filthy muck with the Substance crew, Taran’s set will be a display of everything he has exposed us to whilst being behind the decks at Substance (Bring sunnies; he’s a pale chap!).

Support duties for the night will be handled by the extremely talented Prognosis Pin-up boys J-Slyde and Simon Murphy, whilst visual duties will be handled by the one and only vdmo Kstati – whom left the crowd gobsmacked at our last event from his utterly astounding visuals.

So book the appointment, take the sick day from work and prepare to bulk bill your way to the Perfect Prognosis as Loop bar prepares for another diagnosable night of auditory mayhem.

Kultrun (Beat Geek / Jetlag / Indigo)
