Multi Culti is more than merely a Berlin via Montreal based record label. It’s more than a musical mindset about movement conceived by Dreems and Von Party. It’s more than just the Deutch word for ‘multi-cultural'. It’s more than an orphan shelter for rejected electronic renegades Red Axes, Nicola Cruz, Moscoman, Magic Pirate, Sasha Funke, Jono Ma and of course Dreems. It’s more than a sub-genre defining sound, style, and approach to dance music. It’s now a party, a celebration of the ecstatic side of electronica that happens at Byron Bay’s temple of technologic dance, Locura.
The first episode, back in mid-December when Locura was a mere fledgling, eyes half shut, feathers fluffed, knees still weak was a night of epic proportions. Those that witnessed the first arrival know that it was one for the history books, a rare unity of the spirit soul dancers from Mullumbimby who crossed the tracks in a pilgrimage to share in the sermon with the beat-hungry Byron brats and merchant travellers from afar that have also joined the global pilgrimage to the new Byron epicentre that is the temple of Locura.
4 months on and Locura is now a fully fledged bird of prey, colours, crest, claws and the cry of a technicolored condor circling the city of gold that is now ready to receive the return of the sonic Shaman from the north.
For anyone that takes life in the bay seriously, missing this night is not an option. Monseuir Diop will be setting the evening off on the right foot, bare of course. Locura’s Queen of all things cosmic Eva J will be transforming and passing the baton on to Dreems and Jono Ma collectively known as ‘The Dreemas’ as they carry the night through until all hope of transcendence is trumped by the State's mortal, man-made curfew at 3am.
