Well, well, well, we're turning 1. Who'd of funk it?!
Thanks to all the dancers that have joined us so far, we hope you can join us again as we hit 1 not out! To celebrate we're throwing a little House party at Boney! Come join us & Niko Maxen for a night of pumpers!@
Niko Maxen grew up submersed in a household filled with music, often dancing around while his mother cleaned to the sound of soul and disco flowing out from the family gramophone, It was during these childhood years Niko was exposed to the beauty of vinyl collecting, as his mother nurtured a large collection of funk, soul and R&B, something Niko would later go on to inherit after her passing.
Out of this passion and love for the vinyl format, Pathway Traxxx, the vinyl only label was born in 2013. Originally created as a platform for Niko’s own productions, the label soon gathered support amongst the underground scene, and provided a welcome home for new breakthrough artists to sit alongside more established acts of the underground scene.
Niko’s first release on Pathway Traxx under an “Unknown” alias literally catapulted the label from zero to hero as it shot straight to No.1 on both Juno and Decks.de and later went on to sell out in all stores. Recently they have had Justin Pak, Ray Mono & Nima Gorji feature on the label to name a few!
It’s not just as a label owner and producer where Niko feels at home. Over the last few years Niko has co-run the underground party Moonrise here in Melbourne. They have played host to the likes of Voigtmann, Subb-an & Julian Perez amongst others and he will be bringing his minimal grooves to our 1st birthday party on Friday 20th September!
Hot Mess residents Cam McKay, Mark Nelson & Jordan Frost will also be packing some heavies on the night and we'll be sure to make this is a House party to remember!
