7th BIRTHDAY WAREHOUSE PARTY

1801394_10154078725964465_4728848866019663091_o

Chameleon 7th Bday Warehouse Party
Secret Warehouse Venue

We can’t believe that it has already been 7 years since we collectively opened our minds and hearts for the first time.
Over these years, we have seen the face of underground music grow to a level where it is thriving like we have never seen it before.
We have seen some incredible dj’s and producers rise from the mass and go international, but more importantly we have seen what a great deal of love can do to change the perception of a bunch of humble dudes like us…. It has been a huge journey!

Over these years we have pressed vinyl and sold it in every continent, we have run label events all around Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Germany & Amsterdam, we have run stages at festivals like Strawberry Fields, Rainbow Serpent Amsterdam Dance Event + Rhythm & Alps, we have toured some of the most forward thinking techno and house acts from Europe, we have worked with clubs like Killing Time to establish it as a cornerstone in Aus nightlife, we have taken our radio show global, we have worked with the FReeZa program to mentor youth around Australia and even started our own free music mentorship program to help grow the Australian scene…… But that is nothing without the connection and love that we have experienced with you and another couple of thousand of our other best friends over these years.

So we want to THANK YOU!
And how would we do that you might be asking?

How about we hold an oldskool style warehouse party with a lineup of the most exciting names in techno and house music. No big lighting rigs, no crazy decor… Just a dark room, a big sound system, a strobe light and 600 of our best friends.

MATHEW JONSON – DECOMPRESSION STEVE WARD REMIX
FREE DOWNLOAD
With the launch of our new website behind us, we will be rolling out heaps of free music & ticket giveaways frequently so make sure not to miss out on anything and sign up to our newsletter!

First up Steve Ward has done a bigroom techno version of Mathew Jonson’s minimal techno classic “Decompression” which was originally released on Richie Hawtin’s MINUS record label!

This is what Steve said about the mix..
Firstly, I was thinking about a tune that i have loved for ages which I think definitely needs an update! From the moment I heard Decompression I completely fell in love with how dark and emotive it was. Without a doubt one of the best tunes to come out of the new minimal phenomenon that took hold many years ago!
For a long time i’ve wanted to be able to play it in my sets but the original just doesn’t fit anymore, so i decided it was time for a remix!
I hope you enjoy my version of Mathew Jonson’s minimal techno classic “Decompression”
