LET THEM EAT CAKE LOCAL LINEUP ANNOUNCEMENT PEARL HQ November 4, 2015 BPM, Festivals Slick, stylish and undeniably sexy, Australia’s leading boutique electronic music festival, Let Them Eat Cake has earned a steadfast reputation as the place to be on New Year’s Day. For the fourth consecutive year, Cake will once again romp into the New Year of 2016 in the sublime gardens of Werribee Mansion, just 30 minutes from Melbourne. Discerning, sophisticated and forged with an astute aesthetic in mind, Cake is about uncompromising attention to detail, a stellar lineup of both international and local talent and an eclectic smorgasbord of food and art. Following on from the huge international lineup announcement which included acts as diverse as Âme, Ben UFO, Daniel Avery, Four Tet, Jon Hopkins, Machinedrum, Motor City Drum Ensemble (to name a few), Let Them Eat Cake is proud to unveil it’s impressive local lineup which includes some of Melbourne’s best: Andras & Oscar | Harvey Sutherland LIVE | Fantastic Man | Francis Inferno Orchestra LUCIANBLOMKAMP | Kllo | Breaking And Entering DJs | 6AM At The Garage | Beatrice Boot Action | Jay Mugelli | ACM | Deville | Digital Primate | Fortunes Isaac Fryar | Jade Zoe and Mimi | Jamie Stevens | Kids Table | Lady Banton Louis McCoy | Marky Murphy | Mike Callander | Monkey Marc | Moonshine Muska & Nixie (live) | Salvador Darling Experience | Silent Jay feat. Loreli | Tim Koren Andras & Oscar Andras & Oscar make house music laid bare – rough, ready and romantic. Songs are spontaneous, mistakes are often retained, but the end result is as deep as it is playful. Oscar’s vocals alternate between seductive and reflective, buoyed by gentle, bubbling, inquisitive grooves from Andras. Andras & Oscar have performed together at Golden Plains and for Boiler Room TV and have toured their live show all around Australia. Using an improvised mix of cassette players, dub delays and disposable keyboards, it’s an honest and charming set-up that builds on their individual skills as solo producers and performers. soundcloud.com/chaptermusic/andras-oscar-looking-back Harvey Sutherland A one-time session player and behind-the-scenes man, analog synthesist Harvey Sutherland emerged from Melbourne’s bubbling underground with a cassette tape in hand. 2013’s Nexus EP on This Thing Records – a trip through lo-fi boogie and Roland house music – was a cult hit amongst dancefloor aficionados and primed listeners for his latest 12”s on Echovolt and Voyage Recordings. His music has been played and appreciated worldwide, with support from prominent tastemakers Andras Fox, Jimpster and Motor City Drum Ensemble. Sutherland’s improvisational live show, equal parts 808 rattle and double-disco-clap, is an evolving, synthetic boogie exploration. Manning the controls of the mighty Juno synthesizer, Harvey sweats it out with the crowd, looping new phrases and modulations, pitch-bent solos and the occasional Janet Jackson cover into a heavy four-to-the-floor throwdown. Having recently supported Seven Davis Jr, Jacob Korn and Gilb’r, Sutherland leaves the knob-twiddlers scratching their chins and the dancefloor a hot mess. soundcloud.com/harvey-sutherland Francis Inferno Orchestra Presenting house and techno classics alongside rare oddities from beyond his years, FIOs DJ sets are a low-brow history lesson – respecting the past without being a slave to it. He has grown to become a key figure of Melbourne’s always growing underground dance scene, being invited across the country and further abroad. 2014 saw the release of FIO’s debut album A New Way of Living which was met with great reception and proved just how much talent this unique young artist holds. The same year saw FIO launch Superconscious Records with old friend Fantastic Man (which sits alongside FIO’s other label BBW which has become a sought after series for the functional music supporters). This Melbourne-native DJ/Producer made the breakthrough to the international scene with ease – and has kept heads spinning with a stream of seriously danceable releases since 2010. soundcloud.com/fio LUCIANBLOMKAMP The classically-trained Blomkamp embraces the endless possibilities of the electronic medium to make polished yet provocative music, and to deliver live performances that are accomplished and engaging. His musical background and eclectic influences coalesce into a style that is uniquely his own. LUCIANBLOMKAMP is currently preparing for the impending release of his second LP, a follow-up to his exploratory 2014 debut, Post-Nature. That record put him squarely in people’s sights, along with its lead single ‘Help Me Out‘, which was nominated for an AIR Award for ‘Best Dance, Electronica or Club Single’ and added to rotation on Triple J, FBi and RRR. Lucian went on to win FBi Radio’s Northern Lights competition, earning him a place on the lineup of the Iceland Airwaves Festival alongside Caribou and The Flaming Lips. He’s played at Splendour in the Grass, Strawberry Fields, BIGSOUND, Secret Garden Festival, Melbourne Music Week and the David Bowie Is exhibition at ACMI, and his follow-up promises to usher in even bigger things. soundcloud.com/lucianblomkamp Kllo The musical collaboration of Melbourne cousins Simon Lam and Chloe Kaul have generated considerable buzz worldwide since the release of their debut EP Cusp. Kllo’s music has already been routinely praised by critics and peers, with their ice-breaking first single ‘Make Me Wonder’ picked up by BBC Radio 1 and shared across the online community with reckless abandon. Follow up single ‘False Calls’ was premiered on Triple J’s 2014 (with Richard Kingsmill), before a third single “Under Lie” saw them ranked as Hypemachine’s #2 “Most Blogged Artist”. The Cusp EP then reached a peak of #5 on the iTunes Australia Electronic Charts, and saw the likes of Spotify and Elle Magazine rank them as “Artists to watch in 2015”. soundcloud.com/kllomusic Fantastic Man With an assortment of house, techno, disco (occasionally) and splash of new-age-italo-cuban-cigar-smoking-afro-beat, Fantastic Man presents a unique interpretation of music. Internationally championed, Man is responsible for a string of sold-out records on New York’s Let’s Play House, London’s Wolf Music, and is also one half of the one-time, one-release-only duo sensation (with Max Graef) Real Dubz. Fantastic Man productions can be found on famous compilations like DJ Kicks, and have been played by some of our favorite heroes such as Giles Peterson, Move D and Larry Heard. As a DJ, Fantastic Man’s unique and off-kilter shoulder maneuvers, along with his strange but wonderful music selection have earned him bookings at some of the world’s best known clubs like Fabric London, Watergate Berlin and Output New York. soundcloud.com/fantastic-man Breaking and Entering DJs Lauren Taylor and Simon Winkler are always listening for the new and the next. Each Thursday they share their latest musical discoveries on Breaking and Entering, the New Releases Drive show on Australia’s largest community radio station, 3RRR FM.
