Memphis LK (DJ set)
Introducing herself with the powerfully direct independent single ‘Speak Honestly’, Memphis’ atmospheric club music and purposeful lyrics candidly share her journey to self-empowerment. Now a welcome addition to music authorities Dot Dash Recordings (Methyl Ethel, Sui Zhen), she continues to bloom with the release of her new single ‘Roses’.

A mainstay of Melbourne’s blossoming soul, jazz, and disco scene, Squid Nebula have made a name for themselves as one of Melbourne’s most fun, danceable live bands – fronted by hypnotic First Nations artist Amy Dowd on vocals and keys, and supported by one of Melbourne’s tightest and most idiosyncratic rhythm sections.
