featuring...
Live - ACM (Stable Music)
Melbourne local ACM, is known by many for his inspired, all hardware, live techno performances. Often playing with an element of improvisation, ACM keeps each set unique
and in the moment. ACM crafted his musical palette through his residencies as a DJ, playing house and techno at some of Melbourne’s most prominent nightspots. Those early days built the foundation for ACM’s live performance and production. A respected artist in the Melbourne techno scene for his experimental nature, ACM’s style is matured and characterised by his groovy bass lines, legato leads, and dreamy arpeggios.
Having supported some of the most revered names in house and techno, ACM aims to captivate his audience by drawing on his experiences as a DJ to tailor his sound live for the dance floor. With his execution thought out to the final reverberation, each element has its place in ACM’s live set.

Live - Tangent
Reuben Cumming, aka Tangent, is a newcomer to the Melbourne Techno scene with a huge love for polyrhythms and the squelch of a 303.
Previously, Reuben has worked as a sound engineer, sound designer and musician in both theatre and live music, having studied guitar and west African rhythms from a young age.
After years of performing in bands, his interest in technology combined with the frustration of being limited to a single instrument led him to live guitar looping and eventually, to creating live techno.
Reuben’s eyes were opened to the world of electronic music by artists such as Radiohead, Omar S, Honeysmack and particularly Four Tet’s productions and live performances, drawing him to live techno and producing dance music.
His love for techno was cemented when he discovered acid house and the sound of the Roland Tb303.
In his current live and hybrid sets, Reuben goes on an energetic, unpredictable and often improvisational tangent of techno which has been built from years of knob twiddling and party DJing.

DJ Set - Lani G (Bass Station)
Known for her infamous Madasss warehouse parties and smouldering sets. Lani G has been a stalwart on the Australian underground scene for the last 21 years.
Starting out playing gabba of all things, Lani has come along way and only now feels she’s truly solidified her sound. Dj’ing and producing sharp, deep and dark techno and house.
Having supported the likes of Phil Hartnoll (Orbital), Shakta, Eric Powell, Mike Dearborn, HMC, Woody McBride, Paul Mac and more. This Melbourne rave queen is set to take you on a journey through a hard soundscape, where acid riffs go to feast.

residents...
DJ Set - C:1 (SUPER ENJOY)
With precision cuts and a record collection that would make any selekta salivate with envy, Cam Ashley, better known as C:1, has etched a name for herself among the best in Melbourne’s underground electronic music scene, playing alongside some of the world greats such as; LTJ Bukem, Doc Scott, Klute, Amit, Skynet, Dbridge, Digital, DJ Godfather, Egyptian Lover, DJ Hype, Kenny Ken, DJ SS and Aphrodite.

Live - Dylab with releases on New York Haunted , DETROIT UNDERGROUND, Balkan Vinyl, Acidchicken, Slice Records, Acid Worx, Trax Records and others dyLAB is a highly prolific acid machine. His live sets, free from the confinements of genre and tempo are an exploration of all things acid.

The Databats - "of Water"

“of Water” is the first of two companion records exploring worlds beneath and beyond the surface. At turns dreamy, cavernous, and explosive, this record takes listeners on a descent through Earth’s water column, examining themes of biology, ecology, technology, and the proliferation of life throughout watery realms. As each track shifts focus to a different biome, its unique characteristics and inhabitants are reflected through various permutations of experimental electronic glitch-hop. This culminates in record as cohesive as a drop of water; and as heterogenous as the life within it. A record that, like water, compels you to taste, to touch, to take it with you.

Dive in, and don't forget to breathe.

Metamorph

The Metamorph: an ethereal cyber creature residing in a realm of fog and lasers, engineered by a gestalt techno hive-mind. It’s here to make you dance.

Metamorph is a collection of underground electronica inspired by global rave culture.
The tracks herein are a representation of the energetic, kinetic nature of modern dance music; ecstatic trance by way of gross vibration. Lovingly conceptualised, produced and curated for your cerebral consideration, Slice's Metamorph offers up a collision of techno, acid, psy-tech, and progressive tech-trance.

Many thanks to Clint Grierson (Point Zero Productions,) for providing the visual component to this release; to the musicians who spend their time perfecting their craft for us all to enjoy, Ben Heppel aka Stickleback for your ongoing support and brilliant mastering, and to everyone who sustains and evolves the worldwide phenomenon of electronic dance music.

Jimmi-Woods "Into the Outside Release


We are very proud to announce the release of Jimmi-Wood's album "Into the Outside"! 
- Download for free for a limited time from Bandcamp
- Stream on Spotify
- Purchase from iTunes 

Into the Outside is a tribal techno oblation; an exploration of mystical states induced by unbroken concentration on hypnotic aural stimulus.

Deep rhythm leads us in. Eyes rolled back, the trance is initiated.
Echoes of temple bells and crackling electricity can be felt;
sensory impressions of another plane are transmitted' synesthetically.

Each track is a unique and dynamic tale of living and breathing entities progressively revealing their presence to the experient.
The guiding force behind the music is the brilliant light which lies
beyond the entry to our Platonian cave, yet still a seam of obsidian
darkness permeates this artifact.

Jimmi-Woods' extant spirituality is always present in his work, and dictates the underlying concepts presented therein.
The medicament administered by the elder shaman is a mixture of atmospheres that float between tech infused tribal drums and psychedelic sounds, organically woven together.

Ancient tribal teachings and experiences are passed down from one
generation to the next; Into the Outside is a modern rite of passage
presented by our beloved Jimmi-Woods and the Slice collective.

dyLAB - Submission

Machine soul music crafted with love from his studio on the Mornington Peninsula, dyLAB presents Submission. This sub mission goes pretty deep, dragging down well below the flowing undercurrent.With this arsenal of analogue sounds, Submission invites you to come and share
it. dylab's 'Submission' is just a Slice of what this talented and prolific local artist has to offer for lovers of acid techno.

Available from:

dyLAB makes acid.
He is an English born but Melbourne based acid music producer.
Described as a “box banger”, he likes to tinker with his collection of analogue synthesisers and drum machines. He manipulates the sounds that come out of these machines, and shapes it into what some call essential melancholic dancefloor music. This music should be listened to in dark clubs or darker rooms.
Over the past 10 years he has crafted a solid body of music, releasing tunes on such labels as Acid All Stars, Handmade Acid, BWLR, Council House Records, Clan Destine Records, New York Haunted, Balkan Records, and TRAX, in addition to his own self released work via his Bandcamp site.

SIRC Interview

SIRC: a chat with Jimmi-Woods.


So how did SIRC begin?
Sirc ultimately began when I was messing around with a Korg M1 and Atari for sequencing with a good friend of mine Steve Bertschik in the early 90s. He went on to form Sonic Animation with some others and I needed to get my own gear. Decided on what I knew which was an M1 and an Atari. I then recorded some tapes and started experimenting but nothing serious.

What’s your personal journey in music production and performance? (Prior bands etc)
My journey into "serious" music was when I joined the band Angler who was at the time Marcus Bridges (guitar) and Neil Boyack (guitar) then Ben Bridges joined with drums. W started doing the live circuit around Melbourne and ended up recording 3 studio albums and two live albums. We managed to wrangler 4 star reviews in rolling stone magazine and other mags. Eventually the band started to fade between rehearsals but we still manage to record every now and then.
https://soundcloud.com/angler-533126538



Tell us about the music influences that inspired you to produce? (Send me a link to a favourite track)
I think one of the biggest influences would have to be the Future Sound of London. Their album Lifeforms opened up my mind to what was possible in electronic music production.
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLK6SyYf83DTlWUSg4XXJmDInMf0fqASPB

What’s your favourite track from your EP? (And Why?)
Very hard to choose a favourite track from the EP. I think why your here stands out a bit more than the others because of the half time snare and double time hats. I enjoyed writing that one from a new perspective.

 

Can you reveal your most prized performance weapon and why?
The Elektron RYTM would have to be the best live performance tool I have ever used. Such great sequencing and sampler power in the studio with the added live performance scenes and modes. Such control and at the same time the ability to go crazy if you want.

When’s your Next Gig?
25th October at Tago Mago in Thornbury.

SLICE013 - Fate Æffect’s Parabiosis

Parabiosis is a unique mix of occult industrial, cyber breaks, glitched idm and dark experimental electronic music, a glimpse at a futuristic dystopian world of cybernetic control and decaying reality. Parabiosis swells with a futuristic undertow, dishing out well-placed metallic lashings of cinematic synth sounds and heavily programmed, cut-up drumstorms that combine in fits of chaos and technical wizardry, unleashed in varying degrees of wrathe. The album is dark, conceptually cyber occult, and well-crafted, with Fate Æffect’s exceptional production abilities safely delivering us from start to finish.

An album that will put you out of your comfort zone, the rough futuristic soundscapes of Parabiosis seep in with blasts of complexity and overwhelming tenacity. Like a Siren on treacherous rocks, unceremoniously followed by the inevitably brutal impact, Parabiosis morphs, lures, persists, destroys and deliberates on a surreal, creeping paranoia.

Throwback Thursday with The Scullamooks...

The ScullaMooks are a Melbourne based two-piece band producing on-the-fly, brain-melting psychedelia.
Their music is unique, rich and eclectic. The ScullaMooks fuse a traditional sequenced/pre-determined style with the natural spontaneity and energy of live improvisation. This marriage lends to a life and energy rarely, if ever, found in Electronic Dance Music with a set BPM. All samples, effects and bass are triggered or faded in ʻreal time ʼ. The drums, kick and keyboard are played live. Nothing is quantized or beat corrected. Nothing is over-dubbed. And above all this, everything is improvised. This is how the ScullaMooks get their unique sound. Real life breathed into the coldness of the digital medium.

From Jack Pilven...
"Things get trippy on here – real trippy. Snippets of LSD-inspired meanderings preface heaving slabs of electronica that bubble beneath the surface before disappearing into the abyss again. Otherworldly beeps, blips, and bursts of noise rain down and sizzle over throbbing bass grooves. Each track is accompanied by its BPM, with most whizzing by around the 130 to 140 mark. It’s all a little disorientating – but that’s the desired effect. The ScullaMooks want to warp your perception of reality without the use of mind-altering substances. Instead, they rely on improvisation, experimentation and mixing ideas together like watercolour to create mind-fucking soundscapes, from the eerie interstellar haze of Earthrise to the bongo-happy Mook Runs The Mushroom Down. Proceedings have an organic feel too with each track slowly contorting into the next."

Interview in Beat Magazine

Slice Records chat about their upcoming Geotech 2 party and the diversity of electronicFounders of Slice Records, Cristian Verna, James Woodcock and Gareth Fox met through mutual friends and bonded over shared musical interests.

By Kate Streader

From there, “the triad of Slice”, as they now call themselves, decided to form the record label as a way to release their own music, which progressed into an avenue for showcasing other local acts.

“Really, it was a platform for us to play our own music. We were finding it difficult to get gigs with some of the bigger labels so we thought ‘If they can do it, why can’t we do it?’ ” says Woodcock. “We’ve been making music for ten years now, and over that time we’ve become friends with a lot of artists who have similar feeling in regards to that they want to play their music, we want to be able to play our music, and it was built from that.

“It was more of an excuse to give ourselves some gigs and at the same time, bring together all the things we appreciate in the electronic scene,” says Verna. “Locally more so than anything,” Woodcock adds.

“A love of wanting to showcase our creativity and also arts. People who do graphic design and do really cool stuff also mingle with those guys. They show their artworks at the events.”

Slice Records focuses on underground electronic artists, with the label featuring an array of diverse acts across the multi-faceted genre. The label also shines a light on graphic designers and visual artists. Slice Records have now set their sights on creating events to combine these two elements and provide exposure for local talent.

“Being electronic producers ourselves, we tend to look for artists out there who are doing really interesting things and new stuff,” says Verna. “We like building gigs around our tastes. We make a gig that we would like to go see.”

“One gig could be more techno-orientated and then the next gig we have under the same event heading might be a chill night, then we might go more industrial. There’s a lot of various styles that we like,” says Woodcock.

Slice Records will be hosting Geotech 2, an event that aims to showcase Melbourne electronica acts and visual artists. The Slice team hope to make the show a monthly event.

“With this next Geotech, we’re keeping it very eclectic [and] dance orientated. We’ve got a couple of acts who are doing a lot of live electronica, we’ve got producers and DJs who are playing their own material,” says Verna. “As much as it’s a night that’s showcasing different artists around Melbourne, we also want to put on a good party for everybody to have fun.

“We’ve got Trickbox headlining, and Michael Scarlett from Culture Jam – he puts on all live orientated performances where he builds this set as he goes, it’s very improv and a hundred percent live, which is the type of electronica that we definitely love to showcase with these Geotech nights. It’s more focused on live performance electronic.”

“And there’s some DJs as well, like myself. I make my own music but just to say I’m more confident with DJing my own tracks than putting together a live set at this stage. We have a mash of that sort of thing,” says Woodcock. “And then we have a very live act called Sikander and they’re world music sort of stuff, they have wavedrums, a sitar and guitar, and saxophone.”

“Electronica is very diverse so we don’t like to just have a night that’s completely dedicated to one type of music, we definitely like to change it up. With Geotech 3, that’s going to be quite a darker night with a lot of industrial/break, so expect more experimental styles of electronica,” says Verna. “We’ve got a really nice lineup for that, a lot of producers and artists on that list that I admire so I’m really looking forward to that one.

“And then we’ve got a chill party in August with Kerensa [Stephens], she’s coming up from New Zealand, so it’s going to be a more ambient, chill night from the doom and gloom that we’re going to experience with Geotech 2 – a nice little come down."

Catch Geotech 2 on Saturday July 1, Geotech 3 on Saturday July 29 and Geotech 4 on Saturday August 12, all at Bar 303.

Fate Æffect
Behind the veil, amidst clouds and voodoo trinkets, is Fate Æffect (aka Cristian). Inspired by the occult insight, mental illness, visions of dystopia, and his wife Alison as his muse, this industrial and dark electronica project has been producing multi-faceted esoteric sounds since 2003. His work is a vessel for musical experimentation and inspiration unrestricted by genre, flirting with a range of electronic styles from industrial, dark techno, weird bedroom beats and electronica, breakcore to noise/ambient. Often tongue in cheek and an a reason for venting, & alleviating boredom, Fate Æffect’s live setup and production techniques change constantly and aims to create feelings in gyrations of sensory awareness.

Silver Moon Party @ Tago Mago

Slice and Tempest are very proud to announce that we are having a party at Tago Mago Club on Friday 24th of February for the launch of Lonely Faces's new album Silver moon.
The night will be full of electro, techno and acid featuring Lazyboyproactive, Arcane Trickster, Fate Æffect and Asymmetric :) Lock it in!

"Silver Moon" is the debut album from Lonely Faces, the alter ego of Melbourne based producer Michael Baum. "Silver Moon" spans a variety of influences. Diverse in stylistic breadth, the album was created as an aural experiment on classic analogue synthesizers, heavily influenced by classic techno and electro sounds.
