Stephan Bodzin is back! Following his sold out 2018 tour, which included this amazing sunset performance on the St. Kilda foreshore, one of the world’s biggest LIVE electronic music performers will be returning to Australia in September.
He is the first artist to be announced at the newly minted Thornbury Social Club in Melbourne, the new multi-level warehouse space located in the city’s Northside. He will be supported by two of Australia’s brightest emerging dance music stars: Made In Paris and The Journey. In Sydney, Novel will team up with Division Agency to host the German’s headline performance at the Enmore Theatre.
Stephan Bodzin, who boasts the titles of DJ, producer, performer, and record label founder, is considered a wizard in the world of analogue synthesizers. No doubt the German-born wunderkind’s ability to use music to express his deepest thoughts and feelings came from his upbringing: he grew up amongst vintage drum machines as his father specialised in creating experimental sound. This is definitely a huge clue into why his work is described as melodic and emotive techno, and whether or not you’re familiar with him, his music has the ability to transport listeners to other worlds.
Having worked with the likes of Depeche Mode, Booka Shade, and Thomas Schumacher, his impressive collaborative exploration isn’t what’s kept Bodzin at the top of his game: it’s his ability to produce out of this universe, mind-melting live sets.
