After a couple of months off over the colder part of winter, Technoir is back for the first of two events before the end of 2018!
A long time ago a bunch of jokers decided to hold a horse race that some people surprisingly still care about; we’re just excited that we can use the public holiday as an excuse for an awesome night of proper Techno!
This is our second year doing this event and if last year’s was anything to go by, we seem to be onto a winner!
Not only is this the second time we’re partying on this date, but this time of year also marks 14 years since the inception of Technoir itself!
Holy cow that’s a long time in Techno land!
We must be doing something right?
Joining us this time we have some really fantastic guests, both first timers and returning.
Andrew Till of Machine needs little introduction. He’s one of the most accomplished artists of Australian dance music, period.
We’re very excited to have him grace the stage at Technoir for the first time!
Concealed are a red hot DJ duo that are leading the charge of the younger generation of up-and-coming Techno DJs in Melbourne. Their deep and thoughtful take on Techno will make a very welcome addition to the night as they also make their Technoir debut.
DJ Kiti needs very little introduction, both in general and also at Technoir. She’s made numerous appearances behind the decks for us over the years and we are as humbled as ever to once again host one of the icons of Melbourne’s electronic scene.
Joining these all-stars will as always be the resident heavy hitters Simon Slieker, Dee Dee and Ranjit Nijjer.
Doors Open 10pm til 6am

Technoir returns for their 4th consecutive Queen’s Birthday Eve Party!
What is fast becoming a proper tradition; Technoir is set to blow the cobwebs out of this long weekend with a dose of serious Techno from some of Melbourne’s finest!
Making their Technoir debut, we have Orpheyo Dragon (Dean Benson) and Laura King! We are extremely excited to have both of these stellar artists on board for the first time and we are very much looking forward to what they bring to the table.
Returning for the third year in a row (that’s gotta be saying something?), we are elated to have the brothers Techno, Hyper Binary, back in the saddle to bring their ultra slick Techno stylings to Technoir once again.
As always residents Simon Slieker, Dee Dee and Ranjit Nijjer will be rounding out the experience at one of Melbourne’s finest Techno establishments, Lounge.

Technoir is back for our first party of 2018 and boy do we have a good one for you!
To help us usher in our 14th year, we are excited to welcome the formidable Brooke Powers to the DJ booth for the first time at Technoir.
Joining her will be long-time favourite Chiara Kickdrum, who will be playing a live set for us.
And rounding out our guests is Melbourne Techno Collective (MTC) boss and DJ extraordinaire Matt Radovich, who is making a long overdue return to Technoir.
As always, Simon Slieker, Dee Dee and Ranjit Nijjer will be setting the pace as our resident DJ team.
You know the deal by now; shit hot Techno played by some of this city’s finest at one of it’s dance music institutions in the heart of the CBD.
You’d be crazy to miss it!

13 freakin years??!?!?!?!
It’s a little surreal to be writing copy for this event for the 13th year in a row (granted, we weren’t running Facebook events back in the early days).
One of the longest running permanent fixtures on the Techno calendar of Melbourne returns once again for it’s 13th year in a row.
Christmas means a lot to different things to people but for us, it’s meant Techno for a VERY long time!
This year, we’ve got some returning friends in the form of ACM (Live) and Qualé, but we are also very excited to welcome Luke Agius as he makes his Technoir debut!
Joining them as always will be resident DJs Simon Slieker, Dee Dee and Ranjit Nijjer.
Doors open 10pm til very late
FREE ENTRY before midnight and $10 after
Simon has supplied us with a follow-up piece to his very well received ‘DJ System Wars” a few months back.
This time he’s sharing his experiences with a new piece of DJ hardware that was supposed to make his life much easier…

Technoir is back for our first ever Cup Eve Party!
After our third Queen’s Birthday eve party in June, we just couldn’t wait to head back to Lounge again for more Techno!
This party also lands very close to the 13th anniversary of Technoir’s inception back in 2004, so we’re extra excited for this one!
We’re so happy to welcome back some of our favourite past guests in form of Melbourne Techno heavyweights Adrian Bell (Bunker) and PWD (The Public Works Department).
Joiing them will be JK Roulé (Live), one half of former Technoir resident live act Tronikelesch, who returns to our stage for the first time in two years.
Resident DJs Dee Dee, Simon Slieker and Ranjit Nijjer are of course, to be expected.
