In September, we’re continuing our current journeys into the dark side of synth by courting an interstate electro-industrial duo for perform for the Laser Highway congregation! Supported by three crate diggers to explore evilness in all its forms, and a visual smorgasboard from the VHS archives, you are all welcome to unleash your deepest desires on an unforgettable night.
Seductive electronic mayhem for your aural pleasure, SNVFF’s combination of industrial dance, trip hop and noise have branded
them the lovechild of Nine Inch Nails and Massive Attack.
Neil Orchard etched out his musical path listening to the otherworldly sounds of obscure funk and European electronic music from the 70s and 80s. Exploring an array of sound archives from Belgium to Detroit and beyond, the physical journey continued though the steamy basements and factories of Melbourne’s rave scene of the 90s.
Playing recently at Techno Insurgency, Big Red Bus, and Earthcore, get ready for a sci-fi trip into a tapestry of dark, atmospheric, synth-heavy, analogue sounds. “For me, the mix is what counts, rather than specific tracks or genres. How can I sculpt something fresh out of old and new sounds?” Fun fact: When people ask Neil what his favourite music is, and he replies with EBM, he has to correct people when they think he likes EDM. Big difference.
Matt Daemon conjures a sonic pallette of nostalgic 80s retro electro with darker brooding elements. In our opinion, it’s been far too long since he has graced the LH stage! You can expect a wide range of darker synthwave selections from his favourite producers sprinkled amongst his original creations.
Zerotonine is the host, resident DJ and runs Australia’s first and only monthly club night dedicated to synthwave, outrun and retro electro: Laser Highway in Melbourne. As a labour of love, he is dedicated to providing a unique experience for music makers and fans alike. He is also the co-host of www.kissfm.com.au’s (87.6 in Melbourne) Retro Electro Show from 2pm Wednesdays AEST.
A veteran DJ and creator for over a decade playing too many genres internationally and at home in Australia, he is in love with arpeggio basslines, warm synths, and driving drums; his style is inspired by 80’s movies, the Lamborghini Countach, boss fights, neon vectors, keytars, androids, reverb guitars, gated drums, cosmic phenomena, bleeps and bloops. Expect a range of sonic styles to get your feet stomping and head rocking from all corners of the retro-verse.
