Stereosonic 2010

1 Dec

Well we’ve already seen Canberra , Perth and Sydney Stereo blow the roof, now this weekend, Adelaide, Melbourne and Brisbane get ready for the one of the biggest electro festivals of the year! Check out the line ups a set times at the website, www.stereosonic.com.au, so that you can get your itinerary all worked out because you don’t want to be missing out on anyone.

Here are our highlight choices:

Deadmau5 (obviously)

I don’t think there is any huge reason to justify our choice here. One of the major headliners of the festival, this Canadian prog house DJ has experienced HUGE success in music production over the past year. Now he has the chance to show off his live DJs skills in Aus also. Get ready for the Mouse!

Deadmau5 & Kaskade – Move For Me

John Dahlback

The Swedish producer is owner and founder of Pickadoll Records, through which he has released stuff by Sebastien Ledger and Dada Life. Not only this, but he produced remixes for Alanis Morisette and Kleerup. Don’t miss his first Australian appearance!

John Dahlback – Blink

Dragonette

These guys (and girl) were amazing at Parklife last year so i was very glad to see them join the lineup for Stereosonic this year. They’re Canadian Electropop with a lot of girl power sound, but also cool for the guys. They recently did a huge track with Martin Solvieg for the current Jean Paul Gualtier advertisement campaign and things are definitely looking on the up as since their first album, they keep getting bigger and bigger!

Dragonette – Take it Like A Man (Toxic Avenger Remix)

The Crookers

The Italian duo return to Australia for Stereosonic after headlining the festival last year. Some cities copped the short end of the set times with Crookers starting the day off as opposed to finishing it, so they will happy to see them return as well as those who did get to see them and how great they were.

Proxy – Raven (Crookers Remix)

Surkin

Like most things French, DJ/Producer Surkin is amazing. His in your face techie electro has proven a hit with many remixes over the past couple of years plus a few EPs. Will be awesome to see him live.

Surkin – Automatic

Drop The Lime

The NYC producer runs the dance label Trouble and Bass and also plays under his pseudynom, Curses! Until 2005, he played more breakcore music, but now Luca Venezia has ventured more into house sounding tracks, remixing the likes of Armand Van Helden, Moby, Rex The Dog, Robyn, Little Boots and Blaqstarr just to name a few. His next album should be released early next year.

Drop The Lime – Set Me Free (Harvard Bass Remix)

Alter Ego

The veteran DJ/producer burst onto the scene with Rocker several years ago. It goes without saying he will be amazing, so don’t miss out!

Alter Ego – Why Not! (Adam Sky Remix)

Zombie Nation

Veteran German techno band, Zombie Nation, will be returning to Australia for the first time in a few years. They reached cult status with their 1999 hit, Kenfraft 400, but since then have changed their tune a little to more a more electro sound.

Zombie Nation – Forza (Fukkk Offf Remix)
