DJ: András
Peel back the leaves and discover András, a Melbourne producer making tactile and imperfect electronic music. Inspired by primitive percussion, simple melodies and home recording, Andras combines elements of house music and new age ambience in a distinctly antipodean way.

Leisure Suite

8.30-9pm — Performance
Leisure Suite are a Melbourne-based electronic-pop duo. Brought together by a mutual love of fried food and J Dilla, Bridgette Le and Mitchell Wood make music as lush and luxurious as their name may suggest. Holding as true to their namesake as ever, Leisure Suite’s latest record, “Lay Low” is as lush and leisurely as they come. Swirling synth melodies and downtempo beats underpin Bridgette Le’s velvet-smooth vocals, forging dreamy soundscapes redolent of The XX or Snakadaktal. Having shared the stage with the likes of Alpine, Andras & Oscar, GL and Oisima, along with a highlight appearance at Paradise Music Festival over the past 12 months, Leisure Suite will be doing anything but laying low in 2016.
