As you are probably aware, Fringe festival has well and truly hit Perth’s arts scene and the quality of the shows and talent displayed so far has been phenomenal. So, naturally we’ve had to go and witness some of the live action for ourselves kicking off with an incredible Daft Punk Tribute, followed by the wonderfully talented KLP. Matrix & Futurebound also graced Ambar’s decks last Friday night following up their massive set at Hidden, supported by Perth’s local talent, Flowidus. If you missed out on these stella gigs, fear not, our reviews have got you covered.
Daft Punk Tribute- Chantelle D’Sousza
I’ve always heard good things about the Daft Punk Tribute set, but at Noodle Palace I was finally able to witness it myself. The vibe of their set was incredible to a packed out Noodle Palace, as even some circle of deaths were formed in the crowd. I would probably go see them again for a drunken boogie or for a fun night out.
KLP- Zac Bosnakis
Fringe World’s consistency encapsulates the incredible talents of artists, particularly those of lesser notoriety, within the creative arts world. One of these artists includes Sydney’s very own producer, DJ and vocalist: KLP. Atop Perth TAFE, Noodle Palace was host to the very talented KLP, with a very sound house set. Personally, as a big fan of house music, it is quite clear why KLP has been working with big name artists such as Skrillex, What So Not and Slumberjack, along with having her own Saturday night show on Triple J called House Party. Her ability to mix from house to top 40 party tunes was flawless, building up a very lively atmosphere within the crowd. However, as much as the focus should have been on KLP, the DJ playing top 40 bangers certainly does not help KLP’s set, as she started off with some fairly mellow house tracks. Overall, KLP’s house set complemented Noodle Palace’s chill atmosphere, whilst also entertaining the crowd. Fringe World definitely did not disappoint by bringing this very talented musician to their festival as KLP is, arguably, amongst Australia’s most talented and overlooked artists. Not only is she a seriously talented chick, she is one of the most down to earth people as well. After she had finished her set she came out into the crowd to meet everyone.
We were left loving her even more- expect to see big things coming from her soon. You can also check out one of KLP’s hottest tracks, Ember, down below:
Matrix and Futurebound- Jacob Colangelo
Disclosure Promotions invited Flowidis and their special guests Matrix & Futurebound to this month’s Monarch. With a few of the EMAS family on as support for the night, it was lined up to be a big one. Local legends Flowidus w/ MC XSESSIV yet again brought it to the table. The duo reminded the crowd why they are one of the leaders in the drum and bass scene in Perth. If you haven’t seen these guys play yet, you are missing out. Fresh off playing at Hidden, this UK duo were keen to continue their time playing in front of the bass loving Perth scene. However only Futurebound played the set at Ambar on Friday night. Bringing a collection of classic drum and bass tracks as well as their personal tracks. Control, one of my personal favourites, brought the crowd out of the seats and onto the dance floor. Futurebound played a flawless set with huge tracks like Magnetic Eyes, Don’t Look Back and All I Know bringing the true fan boy out of myself and many other patrons. Definitely a must watch when they next visit Perth.
