Prognosis Live Recordings

by J-Slyde

In the lead up to our third Prognosis event, which is set for April 16th @ LOOP – we thought we’d release a couple of the sets which were recorded live at our last two events. Unfortunately only a handful of the sets were able to be recorded due to technical difficulties, *cough* flat batteries *cough*, but those that were are well worth the listen!

All links are direct MP3 files – simply right click and save target as to download.
Please note that these are raw recordings and as such have not been mastered or edited in any way, shape or form. What you hear is what was played live on the night!

Our debut event under our new Prognosis banner was held the other week on Feb 11th at Loop. A new concept that will run aside our usual Substance events, Prognosis concentrates on the Progressive, Techno and House realms of electronic music, with a heavy interest in live visuals.

We were lucky enough to have down a Photographer for the event who was able to capture the night perfectly. The entire photo album can be viewed via Facebook. Along with the photos we also managed to get some video footage.

Dave Juric

2010 has seen Dave Juric solidify himself in the Melbourne scene, playing regularly at some of the best venues and best parties over the year. The year started with an almighty bang as Clarity hosted Kasey Taylor and Luke Chable, a progressive fan’s wet dream. This was Dave’s first warm up for an ‘A grade’ DJ, and received an extremely positive response. Once again he was asked to fly up to Sydney this time to play at the infamous Chinese Laundry and has maintained his strong relationship with Darkbeat, being selected to be a part of the Darkbeat Local Sessions concept, focussed primarily on appreciating the talent we’ve got in our own backyard. Throughout the year Dave continued his involvement with Dynamic & Room680 which culminated on Cup Eve, as Deep toured another progressive legend from Israel, Moshic.

His sound has again diversified, being inspired by the immense amount of quality music available at any given weekend in Melbourne. It’s not uncommon to hear anything from down- tempo trip hop and drum & bass through to jackin’ Chicago house in one of his sets however generally likes to meander through the house & techno genres without forgetting his progressive roots and forever mindful of both time and space.

recoil

recoil plays Progressive, Progressive House & Power Lounge. More rhythmic & less synthy/trancey. Breaking up the pace by going into the deeper side of prog-house.
The emphasis is on less mnml & more on groove melodies, where the man aims to make his sets fun & danceable.

This fine young man also runs White Noise events, a night of Prog, Deep-Tech & Techno. Offering a deeper, more sinister dance music to Melbourne punters at unexplored venues.
