Substance Warehouse Party Set Times

Substance Warehouse Party

You thought it was finished. You thought it was over. You thought “no way, no how, they’re done and dusted”. Just when you thought it was safe to get back on the dance floor… WE’RE GETTING THE BAND BACK TOGETHER!

The Substance Crew have decided it’s time to dust off those pumps, tighten those tone-arms, unhang those headphones and get back to where it all began, hosting Melbourne’s most diverse electronic music night. Throwing themselves and their collective creativity into the unique art-space that is Rubix Warehouse, the Substance Sounds music machine is rolling once again.

The usual suspects have been working behind the scenes to get ready to take you on a collaborative journey that will encompass everything that the Substance Crew holds dear. A hand-picked selection of the timeless tune classics mashed in with splashes of the new, the music on offer will, like always, be of the highest quality. Dearly loved guests that had joined us in the past and some new faces will join the Substance residents of days gone by for a MASSIVE REUNION spectacular with two rooms of mayhem and a few surprises thrown in to boot!

Headliners Jamie Stevens, Luke Chable and PQM will rejoin the crew, with a slathering of local talents and the original Substance Collective together once more. As we seek to revisit the amazing magic of the past and give it a new coat of awesome, this event is one you don’t want to miss.

Substance: Who we are, where we’re from, what we do

by Taran M

Reflection is always good, especially if you’re reflecting on some of the best moments of your life. The last few weeks while I have not been able to really do anything because of a dislocated shoulder I have been recalled to remember this fantastic little creation I am eternally humbled to have begun and to include three of my best mates in for the ride. Over the last few months I’ve met mutual friends to Simon and Jordan and have been pinged about the early days. For me when I left Melbourne for Sydney, I knew that the best days in terms of careers had been left behind with my best impersonation of an arsonist running over a wooden bridge. I figured that was it, but then again by that stage hard-house was literally being lead into the retirement home and put on dialysis. So no big loss.

It wasn’t until I got to Sydney, settled in and started heading out that anything musical really started to materialise in my head. I had befriended a couple of the promoters at “One Love” in Sydney, in the later stages of Melbourne, myself and my wing-man would be found either at One Love or Viper… Yes Viper… Now before you judge, the music was fucking mint. Electro house but before shit got really, really synth driven. I’m talking “Closer to me” Chab, “Manderine Girl” Bookashade and Pryda/ Prydz. This kind of eclectic mash of electro and tech where genre kinda got a little tossed and lost. My problem however was the crowd. This was typified by the horrors of going to One Love in Sydney. I’m not hating on Sydney per say, especially the friends I have up there to this day. But there was just something wrong about the crowds there and also to a lesser extent Melbourne. The pretention attached to Sydney crowds and house/ electro drove me bat shit crazy. Especially as in Melbourne the crowd at One Love was essentially the revolver crew, just getting more fucked and rocking, but even then the crowds at Viper and Prince were definitely not the PLUR riddled kids that I had learnt to. I learnt swiftly that the Rave mentality of “Do you want some water? Are you ok? where are your friends?” didn’t exist, especially at Viper where the mentality was definitely more along the lines of “you can get more with a kind word and a gun, than just a kind word.”

No shit I got attacked and almost killed by a Red back spider in Sydney. Well that’s a gross exaggeration, I didn’t nearly die, but I learnt a lesson about socks and leaving them on a washing line. So whilst recovering from that, on the couch, ice pack on the foot and listening to tunes and the prospect of returning home to Melbourne already set in stone I spoke to Jordan. I explained the rough ideas I had. “What genre’s?” “Everything” “How?” “I don’t know?” “What venue?” I don’t know” If you remember Peter Vankman and Ray Stanz at the start of Ghostbusters after they have been kicked out of the University. That was it. The only difference being I didn’t make Jordan mortgage himself to the hilt, although it would have been nice to have an abandoned New York Fire Station as our operations. We at least I had a plan to roughly execute. We nutted out the name after coming up with four potentials, I wish I could remember the name of the others but they were woeful. We had a lot of things in set, however Jordan suggested and I agreed I needed to find maybe one or maybe two more people. I didn’t have to look far. I remember the day I called Simon up clear as day. I was leaving Sydney, I had packed my truck, just finished a conversation when I figured Simon might be up for this. I called him up sitting on the edge of the back of the truck. After explaining it to him, he seemed enthused, when he told me he had started spinning tunes, I to was enthused. My neighbour in the block of townhouses I was living in came outside wearing literally nothing but her shorts and bra (She never wore tops due to the heat) and she was about as enthused about me leaving as I was enthused to see her half naked. I had spoken to Rich about Substance and with little persuasion I had him involved as well.

The venue wasn’t hard to find in the end. For most EDM crews finding a venue that hasn’t been tapped out or already been used is growing to be something of a black art. I stumbled across the Soft Belly Bar on a drunken night out. After talking to the owner briefly and explaining what we were all about the owners was pretty down with having us. I have walked past that venue with so much fondness and I genuinely look back at those parties back in the early days with so much love that there isn’t an emoticon to describe exactly how I feel. There was just such a loose, fuck everything vibe to the parties that helped really carry that mentality all the way through the Substance parties as a whole. At any time you could walk into the venue itself and here cracking techno from Simon, walk out the back for an hear Richo destroying a breaks set. Go to the toilet to find fifteen people in a cubicle, walk back out and Jordz is doing what he does best. You know a venue is happy with you when you no longer have a bar tab and you are allowed to randomly take things like a bottle of Vodka to the DJ booth in plain sight and get a nod of the hat. I never wanted to leave this place, the derelict furniture, the smoking in the alley and the general looseness that included driving to Shepparton to play bush doofs at 1am, throwing a DJ off halfway through his set because “Fuck hard trance” and then there was someone’s mate climbing onto the DJ table and pole dancing to MSTRKRFT’s remix of Wolfmothers “Woman”. It was a small venue but we had it packed every night, all our mates and some really fucking amazing nights. What’s more some of the talent that we had along for the ride was an amazingly humbling experience. People with so much energy and passion for getting loose and playing tunes. The likes of Blinky, Kaysh and then there was the guy that we absorbed into our operations so quickly Mouka or Sam if you’re lucky enough to know him. Seriously, Girl Talk would shit bricks at how unbelievably astute this guys ear for mash-up is.

The whole philosophy about what we were about was simple and could be explained in the Renegade St. Kilda Beach party that never happened. We thought we had kept everything low key enough and god was it a hot day. We had setup everything and were literally about to drop our first tune for soundcheck when the council rocked up. What do you do when this happens? Move operations to someones backyard. I mention this because as I remember in our timeline this party occurred before the Substance that never was. Soft Belly had been sold to and I have no problem saying it a complete and utter wanker. We always brought in our sound system, assured they had installed a club sound system through the venue we walked in having arranged nothing in the way of sound. What greeted us was the equivalent to a home theater set up and after deliberating on whether or not to go ahead, Jordan and I decided that there was no way we wanted to compromise what had been such a good thing, on such a shitty sound system. The venue itself had also had numerous complaints regarding noise (A member of the board of liquor licensing lived in the apartment block next door) and we unfortunately had to dust our hands and throw middle fingers. It was a damned shame because we all still have so much love for the place and Les the original owner, this signified the beginning of what I can remember being a particularly dark period for us as a crew.

We were homeless, it is what in battle most military units call “Losing the initiative” or losing the momentum. It took us awhile to find a venue and we did in Highlander Bar. In itself a very unique space, which we truly believed we could make our own. However be it its location, or maybe just being so used to Soft Belly Bar it never really clicked that well for us. Don’t get me wrong we had some great moments in this place, one special moment would be Mouka finishing off one Substance with his mash of “You’re not alone” and “Going in for the Kill (Skream rmx)”, having the whole crowd standing and singing along in the forlorn vibe of Highlander is something I will never forget. But we couldn’t get the crowds we were getting at Soft belly and myself, Jordan and Simon all felt like there was something askew. I can’t remember exactly when or how we called it quits from Highlander, but I remember thinking that it was no big loss but at the same time thinking, where do we go from here. Especially after our first birthday at Roxanne’s Parlour. However Jordz and I got to head up to the Gold Coast and play one of the coolest parties I’ve ever been to and we had some pretty cool side room gigs along the way so it was not all doom and gloom, we were just homeless again.

The best part was about Simon, Jordz and Rich was that in our own way Substance meant a lot for us. That was why we got through the hardest part of this lull. I think as well it was never about money. If it was we would never would have got this far. For every bad patch, there is a good patch and we found what would be the best parties we threw at the subsequently last venue we held a Substance at.

I really can’t remember exactly how we found the Terminus in Abottsford, but I do believe Alex Butler introduced us in some way to the venue through one of the bartenders. This seemed like home, the moment I inspected it for the first time. This is before the overhaul, before the apartment complexes swarmed to fit every square inch around it with accommodation. It was this rank, rundown almost country style pub with what was an open air function area, bar attached with a smaller enclosed area leading to another bar. The owners were happy as these two rooms were seldom used and the timing was simply to for our sound not to interfere with their downstairs clientele after 11pm. The place literally looked like a deceased estate and having not found a suitable venue we decided to give it a crack.

These parties were without a doubt some of the loosest, shenanigan ridden parties I have ever been privy to be engaged in, or attend. Whether it be Simon Murphy DJing in Plastic garbage bags, Danny Bonnici playing what I think is probably the best set Substance ever saw, Blinky getting kicked out before his set, only to have Jordan, Simon and I smuggle him in or Jordan drinking beer from the tap of the bar. The Irish invented the word “craic” for times like these and they were off the wall, if members of the crowd are willing to vomit into their glass and then keep drinking it, just to stay on the dance-floor, you are doing it right. We didn’t have a bar tab after the first Substance, but the venue kept a record of how much we drank, the last tab ran at I think $5000. Without a doubt these parties left an impression on everyone who attended, I love hearing people discuss the Terminus days because they were a perfect way to finish this thing off. Why did it stop? I’ll tell you why, I wanted out. To be honest I felt like I was already “An analogue clock in a digital world” but I simply had lost the real motivation to really keep up with the enthusiasm that Simon and Jordan had for running parties.

It came up in conversation with some acquaintances a month ago that I took the name and Jordz and Simon started up Prognosis to counter that. I was mortified, for the record Prognosis was on the books prior to the last Terminus gig happening, I even helped Jordan with the name. We all went our own ways with the agreement “It’s not a Substance party unless we are all involved”. That wasn’t me saying it either, it was Jordz and Simon. Whether or not this ever happens is anyone’s guess really. But you never know in this crazy world.

Without doubt the most amazing things about Substance for me was to watch Simon and Jordan take their game to the next level from the last Substance party. There is no better feeling than watching your close mates go on to achieve so much and to stop and think I’ve watched them do this the whole way. They say that something rises out of the ashes, this is true, but truth be told the fire has never been put out. Instead Jordan and Simon have been able to take the fire from Substance and start their own equally amazing brand in Prognosis. To be honest that is what Substance has been and will be about for me.

Viva La Substance.

Melbourne’s Beautiful Scene and why it’s the centre of the earth

by Taran M

When it comes down to brass tacks, we all know which city in Melbourne will forever hold the title of Australia’s electronic music capital and it is of course…Melbourne.

From the very first times I started going out, on reflection it was always clear to me that there is something special about the Melbourne scene. Whether it be Progressive, Tech, Psy, Hard trance, electro, drum and bass our beautiful city carries its flag highly on our mantelpiece.

So why does Melbourne work? Why is it possible? Who wrote the book on love and why does the toilet flush when I haven’t even pressed the button; I think I am digressing a touch.

From the time I first started going out late last century (no really 1997!) the thing even as a newbie party goer that I noticed was that the different genre’s of electronic, majorly techno, House and trance/ hard house all intertwined in some way. Whilst purists and pundits did exist there was co-existence and intermingling between all factions. From its inception Hardware insisted on blending tech and house, there CD releases on Shock Records would be split into a house disc and a techno disc. From the onset of both Hard Kandy and Bass Station, Hard trance and house music and electro was always paralleled albeit in a side room. Hard Kandy went as far as having two house DJ’s playing on rotation for warm up sets. The much famed and missed NRG parties run by smile Police always encouraged a plethora of music styles and whilst very much a “rave” spectacle never failed to mix genres on any stage at any time. This establishment of diversity and working together basically galvanised relationships and genre based promoters. And while at any given period a genre can hold popular demand it has never been seen to issue “coup d’état” amongst the others.

All you have to do is look at the festivals that Melbourne holds to understand exactly how deep Melbourne’s scene runs. Since the hallowed Days of Every Picture tells a story, Belfast and the early years of Hardware there has always been an “Enjoy Music” at major events. Rainbow Serpent, Summerdayze, Welcome, Good Vibrations, Stereosonic, Hot BBQ, and Future music are festivals that Bred from Melbourne promoters and have become state and even national success stories. At grass roots smaller scale promoters have been encouraged more than discouraged by the bigger promoters. More so Melbourne has bred promoters to appreciate the party more than the cash. It is amazing how quite a few of the middle tier production companies run at next to nothing budget’s just to throw a party, just to get people shaking it…like a 35mm picture.

There has never really been any such “stand over” tactics by larger scale promotion companies to undermine smaller event organisers. There is a healthy buffer and intermingling between the likes of lower, middle and upper tier promoters that helps breed a pro active approach to maintaining and growing electronic music. There is always going to be the fuckwit promoter who doesn’t pay his DJ or the arrogant, self absorbed money hungry promoter/ rapist that springs up from time to time. The only problem is that us promoters all talk to each other in one form or the other and sooner or later the evangelistic, fly by night promoter is found out, I can think of a few that have all to quickly sunk under their ego’s own mistakes.

It’s always going to be about the talent and in the words of Hunter S. Thompson in Fear and Loathing “We’re chock full of that!”. Australia’s first two early superstar DJ’s came from the Melbourne scene, Will E Tell and Richie Rich. I think sometimes we are spoilt to the point of under appreciation of the amount of talent around in Melbourne. Whether they be DJ’s or producers the quality of the gene pool in Melbourne cannot be under estimated. Whether you’ve loved Hard trance/ house, love it now or hate it with a passion; you cannot ignore the talent we have in Melbourne. The original Kandy crew of Scott Alert, Ajax and Krash are still some of the most talented producers and Dj’s you will find. NFX is one of those producers that can only be truly found once in a blue moon (I think we can claim Dr. Willis as well!).

Producers of all genres whether it be the Progressive/ tech stylings of Blinky (Beat Geek Records), the tech house/ electro antics of Kalus, Trance extraordinaire Steve May (5am/ Armada) showcase the depth of Melbourne’s talent. So much so that many of the above names have featured on the set lists and podcasts of such international stars as Dubfire, Armin Van Burren, Tiesto and Carl Cox. We can’t forget our biggest national dance music export, TV Rock who also hail from our beloved city. We have even thrown a major contender into the ever popular “Mash arena” in the vein of Substance’s own Mouka. Seriously this guy makes Girl Talk sound like a poor man’s Bob Hope. To list the talent in Melbourne in terms of DJing would require an almost dictionary like bible. Melbourne is “Spin city” a haven for the master of the pioneer, mac and now the almost extinct 1200’s.

Finally this article would be a miss without giving praise to the Melbourne crowd. I have partied in every city and played in most of them as well and I can easily say that WE ARE THE SHIT! You won’t find a friendlier crowd on a dance-floor than in Melbourne. More so Melbourne’s regular punters don’t just go out, they live and breathe the scene. Not so much as scenesters, but more as crowds that love their music, support their cause and promote our city for what it is, the centre of Australia’s electronic music scene.

Substance Rooftop Party feat Luke Chable

by J-Slyde

Spring has sprung and the Substance Krew could think of no better way to celebrate than to launch the Audible assault craft, loading the guns to stun and deliver the second instalment of their Rooftop party series. If you missed the last one, don’t make the same mistake twice!

The Terminus rooftop has barely recovered from the first round of shenanigans and god only knows if it will be able to handle the second coming. Our first special guest is non-other than Melburn’s prog pin-up, Luke Chable. Keeping a low profile over the past year to concentrate on his Rock n’ Roll roots Luke was nice enough to agree to an exclusive Oldschool set. Whether it be his solo productions or his team ups with artists such as Danny Bonnici, Jono Fernandez, NuBreed or with Phil K (under their Lostep guise), Luke has been responsible for some of the biggest prog and breaks tracks of the past 10 years. Play listed by some of the biggest names in the world, his production is quite simply, second to none. Needless to say we’re very happy to have him on-board.

Backing up what is already a solid guest we prepare for Muska’s first set on substance shore’s. The head honcho behind the massive Melbourne party crew Mixed Messages. His sets bring all genre’s into one flowing musical crescendo hence bearing reason as to why he is one of Melbourne’s most noticeable and notorious party DJ’s.

We also welcome Alison Spong on board to pop her Substance cherry. Having secured numerous support slots in all genres of the Melbourne scene of late and appearing here there in everywhere, Alison’s sets pack plenty of punch and we’re sure there will be no exceptions when she graces the balcony for her prime time afternoon set.

With the regular residents getting ready to drop all types of madness and regular guests Hendo, Recoil and Alex DB. You better keep the 16th of October clear, get those drinking goggles cleaned and polish off the party boots, cause ITS ROOFTOP ROUND 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Luke ChableLuke Chable has been at the forefront of the international dance music scene for almost a decade. Since his first release, ‘Accelerator’ (under the moniker Traveller presents Quest) which sold out of four pressings and appeared on no less than eight compilations around the world, Luke hasn’t looked back.

It wasn’t long before Luke had a plethora of original releases under his belt. Club hits like ‘Eat Static’, ‘Sealer’s Cove’, ‘Midnight In Cyberfunk’ and ‘Bitter & Twisted’ were standouts. The quality of Luke’s songwriting and production skills was soon recognised by DJs across the planet and his tracks became regular favourites with the likes of Deep Dish, Sasha, John Digweed and Danny Howells. Following on from this support, John Digweed signed Luke’s smash hit ‘Melburn to his Bedrock label. This in turn put Luke on the global map and set him up for his overseas success.

Luke’s defining moment on the international scene came from a collaboration with Danny Bonnici from seminal Australian electronic act Nubreed. ‘Ride’, a melodic, progressive house bomb was signed to major dance label Alternative Route and the rest is history. The instant success of ‘Ride’ set Luke up as an international powerhouse. In 2005 Renaissance invited Luke to do a compilation mix CD with Dave Seaman before embarking on a year long tour of the UK, Europe and the United States to support the release.

Off the back of his solo success, Luke has been a remixer in demand. His thumping main room sound has been sought after by labels such as Bedrock, Positiva, Ministry of Sound, Yoshitoshi and Black Hole. Some of the big names Luke has remixed include Steve Angello, James Ash, Tune Brothers, Stockholm Syndrome, Kasey Taylor and Shiloh.

More recently Luke has been collaborating in the studio with Australian dance legends TV Rock. This partnership has proven to be a killer combination with the hugely successful releases ‘Happiness (I’m Hurting Inside)’ and the hit ‘In the Air’ – feat Rudy which was released on Axwell’s Axtone Records. Luke has also remixed numerous TV Rock originals such as ‘Everything Changes’, ‘Times Like These’.

More recently Luke has provided remixes for UK superstar Dizee Rascal, ARIA winner Bertie Blackman, TYDI, Tin Alley, Sunlovers and Kaz James.

The Substance krew are a group of like minded party goers dedicated to bringing the freshest sounds to the Melbourne party scene. They endeavor to offer something fresh and different to their punters. Not adhering to current ’nightclub etiquette’, the Substance elite DJ krew showcase sounds from a plethora of different electronic genres and styles on any given event – giving their punters an orgasmic journey through the aural delights of EDM.

Substance don’t have to sell anything, the line up speaks for itself. A little bit of everything mixed in with a whole lot of fun. The formula to make the substance is simple. Start with concentrated breaks blended into Electro. Mix in a beaker of tech, a test tube of prog, a spatula full of minimal and a litmus test of trance and everything in between in what promises to be a fanatical night of auditory assault.

With a stellar line up of kick ass residents and a galaxy of local and Interstate special guests throughout the year Substance is guaranteed to bring you nothing more than a good time. So keep your eye’s on the look out and your ears to the ground as we lay down some serious sounds!



The Mixed Messages philosophy centers on cultivating new concepts in dance music culture and evolving current trends in the way that dance music is created, played and enjoyed. We acknowledge that any subculture has the ability to magnify human foible and virtue. Moreover, we seek to uphold the integrity of dance music culture by readily embracing the power that our industry has to make positive changes that extend to the wider community. We do this through the emphasizing a high-quality club product and rejecting the aspects of club culture that compromise the characteristically underground notion of being ‘all about the music’.

Our music policy steps outside the restriction of genre and defies the popular notion of playing only club anthems. Our DJs are encouraged to consider a Mixed Messages party as an opportunity to exhibit their art through structuring sets that could not be heard anywhere else. A Mixed Messages DJ reads the room and responds by taking everyone present on a journey of sound, infused with their own signature style which keeps people coming back weekend after weekend. The appeal for a DJ to play a Mixed Messages party has enabled us to secure the best DJs from each genre that is definitive of the Melbourne underground sound. We have an unrivaled artist roster for our regular nights and carefully tailor our touring line-ups to best suit the hosting venue.
