~~excited to announce the first support act/an important person, who since i started the label, has supported it, helped out, played shows, list goes on.. so, very happy he'll also be playing here! -
Western sydney based experimental dark techno artist MLDVR performs an eulogy to his recently deceased inner child chiptune project SEAGULL CHAINSAW to coincide with the launch of the 3-Disc anthology “RIP S.G.C.S” & “Perpetual Solitude” CD EP[out now on chemical imbalance,] 
MLDVR demo track
SGCS track from forthcoming 3cd set
~~another support act just announced.. a rare treat to see obscure duo THALLIUM & MILO perform live! Consisting of Wade Clarke (Aeriae) & Christian Durham (the Sha/ PerConCussion) 
"Thallium & Milo make music. They do this in real time by selecting what instruments or computers each will play, pressing Record, playing music and then, fifty-three minutes later on average, saying something like, 'Shall we wind up now?', agreeing to do so, winding up the track, and eventually pressing the Stop button. Every Thallium & Milo track is a one-off improvisation." 
~~ANOTHER fine addition to the line up is Del Lumanta [Video Ezy/Skyline] performing semi-improvised synth as GAS!
+GAS doin' some bangin' techno, on this track she contributed to the recent '[SYD.TEK-NO?] C60 mixtape'
~~~& lastly MATT EARLE (one half of Club Sound Witches, Stasis Duo, XnobbqX, tetRMplex) will be doin' a solo set.. perhaps some minimal/fried techno? or maybe something quiet different if he plays as MUURA. can never really tell for sure.

/ & please bring some extra coin if you can - and hit up the epic merch desk, which will be stocked with a heap of decently priced goodies well worth ya dollars+cents!
