Head on over to the articles section of the website to read Technoir resident Simon Slieker’s humorous and thoughtful piece on the phenomenon of the EDM DJ. Please feel free to join the discussion in the comments section 🙂
That was great!
It was so much fun to dust off the old Technoir machine for a mid-year party for the first time in nearly 5 years; we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and hope that those that attended did too.
Keep an eye out for new ‘articles’ in the coming weeks (hopefully) as well was details of our next event a little later in the year as we celebrate 11 years of party magic 🙂
Here’s a collection of audio recordings from the night; all sets are accounted for with the exception of Harold whose recording succumbed to technical problems.
Technoir is back and ready for their first, just for fun mid-year party, in nearly four years; and boy are we excited! After the phenomenal success of our 10th birthday and 10th annual Christmas party celebrations; we have felt a great sense of enthusiasm about contributing slightly more regular events to the now ever burgeoning Techno scene here in Melbourne. To that end, we thought we’d head back to one of our all-time favourite venues with some awesome artists and throw one hell of a party! Returning to grace the Technoir stage after their recent stellar individual performances late last year are DJ Kiti and Chiara Kickdrum who will be performing an extended back-to-back set in the late hours of the morning to close out the party. If you’ve ever seen these ladies play, you’ll know that this will be something truly special. Making their debut at Technoir this time we are extremely proud and honoured to welcome Harold and Tercat (Live). Harold of ‘Steeplejack’ fame has cemented himself as one of the bright young stars of the DJ scene, brandishing both superb selections and rock solid skills. Despite only performing for the first time together in January this year, live duo Tercat (Andy Muscat AKA ACM & Jonathan Terlato) have already become an act to pay serious attention to in Techno land. Heavily favouring all manner of hardware to create a raw and tough dancefloor experience, these guys are sure to put on an excellent show. Simon Slieker, Dee Dee and Ranjit Nijjer will be the resident sonic curators for the evening as they showcase their collective experience of over 50 years of DJing; nearly a decade of which has been as the backbone of the Technoir sound. As always, we will try and create an immersive experience for our guests through creative décor and lighting that acts as a perfect compliment to the high intensity Techno sounds.
Doors open from 10pm til 7am Entry is $15 from 11pm with a $10 guest-list
This marks a bit of a new era for Technoir, having just had our 10th birthday celebrations late last year.
As well as making a return to more regular events here in Melbourne, Technoir is going to try and contribute somewhat to the ever continuing discourse of all things Techno in the form of a semi-regular article or discussion piece series that will be posted on this site. It’s still in the beta stage but we really hope it’s something that could evolve into a great forum for the discussion of the thing we love here at Technoir; Techno 🙂
We’ve also got pages for our lovely resident artists, most of whom have been there from day one in one form or another, where you can find all the latest online music from them.
It’s also exciting to be able to collate and present a significant portion of our past flyers and some selected photographs, there some some amazing parties and memories in there.
And finally, this is where you’ll be able to find out about any upcoming gigs Technoir has planned!
