Fantastic Effects zeroes in on the percussive end of club music, with a carefully curated selection of bold and direct tracks from Australia and abroad.
Crazy Legs (an eminent dance freak by a different name), The Ghan (Fishing), and Portuguese kuduro pioneer DJ N.K. open proceedings with some peculiar rompler workouts before T.Morimoto and DIN (Chunyin/Rainbow Chan /Moon Holiday) deliver two driving cuts from different perspectives. We then call on Body Promise‘s HED Ardennes, Perth/Sydney cyberpunks Hot Wavs and Melbourne noise duo WDK to dial up the overdrive and flip us all the digital bird. fake (Cassius Select/BV) and dream collab DJ Plead & DJ Logic offer two darker atmospheres at kick on and kick off tempos respectively, and Andy Garvey makes her spectacular debut with a floor-filler only a seasoned DJ could create. Poison appear courtesy of Melbourne label Sumac for a small taste of the MIDI east, and to cap it off multidisciplinary artist Makeda backs up the ferocity of friendships with a delicate and sublime cadence.
