Canberra: famous for Politicians, Fireworks… and Deep Dark Dance
To some Canberra is famous for politicians and fireworks. But with top exports like Peking Duk and the Aston Shuffle, as well as a healthy and accessible local scene, Canberra artists, promoters and partygoers are putting it on the dance music map as well.
Trinity has brought many top notch international acts to Canberra in recent months like MK, Amine Edge & Dance and Wave Racer. This month Trinity is putting local talent having recently staged a DJ comp and weekly DJ workshops.
I’m on at 9.30 and there’s no shortage of Canberra producer / DJ talent throughout the night: Alex York, Clamore, Doppel, Sondrio & Bort. Expect to hear deep house, tech house, indie dance and more.
Keep an eye out for the poster around town:
Here are some of my favourite tracks from the producers featured on the night.
Alex York - Pull That Back
Clamore - That’s Just Fine
Doppel - Waves (feat. Xavier Dunn)
Sondrio & Princi - All in Black
Louderest - Held Against a Gun (feat. Kunal Roy)
Shout out to Bort who is kicking things off from 8.30.
Big shout out too to Megan and all the other Trinity staff, as well as all the Trinity party goers who make it such a great vibe week after week.
