Melbourne, once regarded as “techno city” by a touring Luke Slater in the late nineties, has had a long standing love affair with the futuristic sounds from the motor city. Like all good love affairs there’s been good times and bad, but always more sunshine than rain. So it’s fitting that the year that one of this cities longest running techno crews celebrates 10 years of existence, is also the year that Melbourne has fallen in love with techno all over again.
The Melbourne Techno Collective weren’t around when the love affair began, they aren’t nor have they been the largest or most popular techno crew in Melbourne and they lay no claim to being the this cities most influential. But in 10 years of passion for techno music, passion for discovering and nurturing a uniquely Melbourne sound and passion for celebrating and supporting Melbourne’s own talent with the sort of vigour usually reserved for stars from across the globe. The Melbourne Techno Collective has unquestionably put their footprint on the Melbourne underground.
However small or large that footprint might be is inconsequential, what matters only is that in 2012, the flame that sparked the Melbourne Techno Collective revolution way back in 2002 has rekindled and on Friday October 26th will spark once more.
Join the Melbourne Techno Collective with special guest Steve Rachmad and a cast of Melbourne based DJs and Live acts as they once again prove why Melbourne will forever be “techno city”
