There is something alluring in the warm buzz of analogue electronics, and the crackle of vinyl purring it’s buried hidden code. Lo-Fi 45 is here to get back to the source and strip electronic music back to its’ bare essentials. There is no script or hidden agenda here outside of a simple service: Delivering quality house, techno and anything in between to those who appreciate good tunes.
It's been a long work in progress but we're ready to finally unleash this puppy! We cant wait to get this record label off the ground and showcase with you countless Australian artists writing amazing music!
For those of you who aren’t aware, our first EP will be titled Departime & Fluidlife. This release will be dedicated to our dear friend John Sharp who passed away in August 2013. Departime was the name of his last mix on Souncloud, and Fluidlife being the name of his regular club night and touring company.
As two of his closest friends and colleagues, we found it fitting to dedicate this EP to him and approach a handful of people both locally and internationally to do remixes of it. This will feature people we knew he respected as artists, DJs locally he gave their first gig too and people we know respected him and what he was striving to achieve for the scene and everyone involved in it.
On domestic remix duties we'd like to welcome Retza, Darius Bassiray & Damir Smith to the Lo-Fi family. Their remixes will feature on this very first release and they are sounding very sweeeeeeet indeed!
To spice things up on the international front, we approached head honcho of Tsuba Records - Kev Griffiths for a remix, he will be joining us playing at the event this Saturday. We’ll announce the remaining international artists featuring on this EP very soon so hang on tight, it will be worth the wait!
To celebrate this madness, we just had to team up with Olya and the BLACK MARKET crew to share this launch of our label with like minded souls in what we personally believe to be the best monthly club night in Melbourne.
It's gonna be a great start to 2015 and we'd love to see you there to check out these tunes, have a drink, a boogie or a wobble and some fun with the Zebras running about and god know what else with us! You’ll find all kinds of animals there on the night so be prepared!
See you on the dance floor or pick you up off it, which ever way you fly we’ll see you on the night!
As always with Black Market, expect the unexpected!
