Sliding into the end of 2016, there will be no better place to be as T1000 Events unleash the Electric Gardens Festival Launch Party featuring a techno legend that dominated on the Electric Gardens Festival Code stage. This premium electronic daytime event will takeover every room including the pool area at Sydney’s IVY BAR. With doors opening at noon, this will be the ULTIMATE pre-Christmas event for party revellers!

Electric Gardens Launch Party | CODE | Ivy Takeover | 5 Areas including the pool area with 25 blistering DJ sets. 

Venue: THE IVY: Level 1, 330 George Street, Sydney NSW

Date: DECEMBER 10, 2016

Time: doors open at noon till 8:00pm

“Ali Shirazinia is a name that is written in EDM folklore. Initially as a part of the supergroup Deep Dish with partner in crime Sharam Tayebi – but now as a bona fide solo superstar – the Dubfire name is now associated with deep, meaningful production talent as well as a superb ability to read a crowd from behind the mixer.” – BEAT MAGAZINE 

Without question, DUBFIRE stole hearts and conquered minds in Australia when he closed the CODE stage at ELECTRIC GARDENS FESTIVAL in January this year! This man is literally on FIRE right now! In addition to his stellar performance at Electric Gardens, he literally stole the show at Coachella in April and was chosen by the legendary Carl Cox to play B2B at the big man’s last ever birthday celebration at this year’s Space Ibiza season!

There is no denying that the Grammy award winning DUBFIRE is an artist whose drive, talent and intuition have placed him within the top tier of electronic music artists in the world. His solo performances at the world’s most influential clubs and festivals, running his label SCI+TEC and his exploration of audio and visual technology, DUBFIRE is in a class of his own. Hits like Ribcage, Emissions and Roadkill have seen DUBFIRE’S reputation as a true master of his craft firmly cemented. As one half of the hugely successful Deep Dish, DUBFIRE dominated electronic

music for well over a decade. The release in 1998 of their ground breaking album ‘Junk Science’ sent critics worldwide into ecstatic meltdown and saw Deep Dish thrust into the forefront of musical dominance worldwide. Never satisfied with the status quo, DUBFIRE spent two years crafting a live show (HYBRID), a concept that has wowed audiences since its launch in 2014 and described by Thump as, “unlike anything we had previously seen or heard before anywhere”.

Supporting Dubfire and making his Australian debut we welcome MATADOR. This talented producer has taken the techno world by storm. Gavin Lynch better known as Matador rose to fame as a sound engineer and DJ in his native Dublin, the dedicated producer has plotted a carefully devised route right to the forefront of techno in just three short years. The initial break came on Hawtin’s Plus 8 thanks to a driving monster of a remix for Bryan Zentz’s D-Clash which announced Matador as one to watch in dance circles. Following that up with a debut EP on Minus was perfect opportunity for Matador and the success of his Kingswing release gave him the impetus to launch himself fully into

the world of techno. With staunch support from Mr Hawtin himself, Matador became a regular fixture on the Minus lineups around the world, making his debut at the revered Watergate in Berlin and going on to perform at a multitude of Minus events including a residency that summer at Enter in Space, Ibiza. This also led to various festival invitations and an extensive touring schedule with visits to Monegros, Balaton Sound, Time Warp, Creamfields Argentina, Melt Festival, BPM, Exit Festival, Movement Detroit and many more in just a few short years.

    • Armin van Buuren and HI-LO collab on ‘Now Love Will Begin’ armin-van-buuren-hilo-feature-oz-edm

      Trance icon Armin van Buuren and techno virtuoso HI-LO join forces on one of 2024’s most exciting collaborationss. Introducing ‘Now Love Will Begin,’ the genre-bending collaboration between trance icon Armin van Buuren and techno virtuoso HI-LO. Premiered on “A State of Trance” and a standout track included in Armin van Buuren and HI-LO’s much-talked-about B2B set at A State of Trance Rotterdam,  ’Now Love Will Begin’ is a groundbreaking fusion of techno’s pulsating rhythms and trance’s euphoric melodies. The song takes listeners on an exhilarating journey through the realms of both genres, igniting dance floors and hearts alike. “HI-LO (Oliver Heldens) and I just click so well. It was apparent during our back-to-back live set at A State of Trance in Rotterdam, and many others were able to see it as well when we connected on stage again in Miami during the Ultra Music Festival. I’m so happy that this natural flow between us extends to our studio work as well. We’re both so passionate about dance music, and I’m having such a great time being producer-nerdy in the studio with him. ‘Now Love Will Begin’ is what came out of it, and I’m so excited for the world to hear what we cooked up together!,” Van Buuren says. “In the last half a year, it’s been awesome working with Armin on several collabs and preparing for our b2b sets. Probably the highlight so far was when all of that came together during our b2b at A State of Trance Rotterdam, and even though the b2b set at A State of Trance Miami didn’t happen in the end due to severe weather conditions, we still had a lot of fun preparing for that set, and in general, it’s been lovely to connect on a deeper level. Our first collab, ‘Now Love Will Begin,’ definitely captures that spirit; I think it’s a meaningful banger of a tune that crosses boundaries, uniting the worlds of techno, uplifting trance, and psy-trance. Enjoy! :),” HI-LO adds. Get ready to experience the ultimate union of techno and trance, where love and music intertwine to create pure sonic ecstasy.
