Hailing from The Blue Mountains; Dysphemic - offspring of Vernon Treweeke, the “Father of Australian Psychedelic Art” - started experimenting with music at the age of 10. From humble beginnings programming on an Amiga Commodore computer and playing drums, Dysphemic has established himself as a one of Australia’s most unique and prolific producer/MC’s. Traversing from jungle, hardcore techno, hip hop, IDM, drum and bass, dubstep and glitch hop, Dysphemic’s standout releases (‘Sloth’, ‘Androids’, ‘Hypnosis’ and ‘Muthaf#ckn Dinosaur!’) have received worldwide attention and a dedicated following after his European tour.
The “child prodigy” of Filipino sensation Maestro Julian Quirit and a classically trained violinist since the age of 3, Miss Eliza grew up in the concert halls of Asia and Australia. With no less than 40 first prizes under her belt, she made her professional debut at age 13. Miss Eliza’s teen years were then spent touring as a soloist for symphony orchestras, her performances televised and critiqued as “electrifyingly phenomenal”. Renowned for her “fiery”, “passionate” and “magnetic stage presence”, Miss Eliza can now be found blasting melodies into the electronic dance scene, dropping knowledge on her ‘Miss Eliza Violin and Theory School’ and supporting the Filipino community in Australia and abroad.

Oh, the wonderful sounds Octonaut can do! It can sound like beep beep or boom boom. Octonaut knows not the difference from music and fad; it has treble and bass, but knows dub step is bad. Across the sea of space in 2007, Octonaut received best future bang, 2011. Unable to take form due to the space time continuum, it took on a life as a trio in Eugene, Oregon.
clætron is the new moniker for the DJ, Clayton Colwell. His sets take his decade-plus experience as a musician/dj/partygoer and infuses a sensibly broad taste. What follows is a dynamic, genre bending flow and a penchant for boogie-downs that simmer and boil alongside artists such as The Hood Internet, VibeSquaD, Heyoka, Bass Science, Nalepa, Ghislan Poirier, Filastine, The Blue Scholars, Dirty Disco Kidz, Sporeganic and perpetuate many dance/club nights. As clætron emerges from the ether, a conduit has been activated, enabling participation and sensory awakening for all within earshot.
