One of club culture’s most fascinating characters. The enigmatic Moodymann will be heading to Meanjin / Brisbane for the very first time to headline a heightened dance experience. 

Astral People & Kinda Cool presents… MOODYTOWN 

One of club culture’s most fascinating characters. The enigmatic Moodymann will be heading to Meanjin / Brisbane for the very first time to headline a heightened dance experience.

A bonafide original - raw and unfiltered - proudly Detroit - proudly black.

He is a club heavyweight who has left an indomitable mark on the cultural sphere, fiercely doing things on his own terms. A key identity in Detroit’s ever affecting legacy - Moodymann would emerge amongst fellow luminaries such as Carl Craig, Theo Parrish and Rick Wilhite. His classic material is endless, the majority via his own cult DIY imprints KDJ and Mahogani Music. Diametrically opposed to today’s obsession with fast and overblown productions, he is committed to creating a subtle and distinctly black imprint on techno and house.

For an artist who is vehemently underground in his approach, it is made all the more significant that he finds himself as a character in Grand Theft Auto or sampled by Drake. Proof that his music connects louder than the rat race that surrounds him. While his intentions are often clouded in mystery, a core thread through his touch is an unwavering love of his native Detroit. It is an intrinsic feeling that breathes through the Moodymann experience no matter where he finds himself in the world. He is a rarified DJ that will leave a long lasting impression on your soul. Moodymann will take you there and bring you all the way back. A master of the true craft of DJing, ready to lift you to higher places.

The heretic leads a monster billing of compelling figures that includes Nigerian born future-soul star Wayne Snow. An artist whose rise has been meteoric - having collaborated with artists as diverse as FKJ, Folamour, Max Graef and Neue Graffik, while releasing music via respected imprints like Tartelet, Dekmantel, Rhythm Section. Making his Australian debut, the now Berlin based artist will bring his contemporary twist of jazz-tipped, soulful grooves for a special live performance. Further complementing this authoritative flex are two homegrown heroes also with Berlin ties.

Claire Morgan is well known for slick, dexterous throwdowns of techno, acid, booty, proper electro and Detroit soul, having played everywhere from Berghain & Panorama Bar to De School and Melt Festival. Fellow globetrotting Brisbanite and local favourite Jad & The warms the floor. The Beats Of No Nation co-founder’s pulsing house cuts are heard on dancefloors across the world with releases on imprints including Banofee Pies, Toy Tonics and Rhythm Section.

This event will take place on the lands of the Turrbul and the Jagera peoples. Astral People and Kinda Cool acknowledge their Elders past, present and emerging and pay their respect to all First Nations people. Always Was, Always Will Be.
