With Summer finally here, Sunday Safari is kicking off the holiday season with an impressive cast of DJs and memorable indie-pop newcomers. December 22 will see L.A based dance music duo Bag Raiders grace the decks as well as bass heavy Frenchmen DJ Snake and Melbourne’s hotly anticipated foursome World’s End Press.
Jack Glass and Chris Stracey, better known as Bag Raiders, are two creative minds continually bringing some of the most memorable and imaginatively produced tunes to the scene. The Sydney-siders have come a long way since their inception into the music scene in 2006. Familiar tunes such as ‘Shooting Stars’ and ‘Way back Home’ have become cult Australian dance tracks while their innovative remixes continue to excite the nation. Currently underway on their ‘Homecoming DJ Tour, the dance duo are set to release their forthcoming sophomore album in early 2014 and here’s to hoping Safari-goers are the first to hear some of the new tracks!
DJ Snake, the Grammy nominated producer, has been powering through 2013 with a bevy of freshly produced originals with his most notable being ‘Bird Machine’. His tracks have received extensive play from the likes of Dillon Francis, Diplo and Baauer on some of the largest festival stages in the world. With his Australian tour underway, the Parisian native is set to play at the likes of Groovin’ The Moo’s partner festival The Plot in Sydney and Melbourne as well as each capital city’s most distinguished party hotspot. And what better place to wrap up the tour than Byron Bay, Safari-goers are in for a treat.
With the recent release of their long-awaited self-titled debut album, World’s End Press are the talented four-piece that everyone’s talking about. The Melbourne indie-pop gentleman have generated some of the most original and noteworthy tracks to date including ‘Second Day Uptown’ and ‘To Send Our Love’ which have been well-played throughout 2013. Their musical aptitude is topped off with lead singer Tom Gould’s smooth yet eerie vocals which act as an almost hypnotic force of nature. The rise & rise of World’s End Press looks set to continue in 2014, but first the band is set to play Meredith Music Festival this December and will finish off 2013 right here in Byron Bay.
And to top off this enviable line up is Sunshine Coast native Tim Fuchs. The one-man-show has an international portfolio of work, which includes gigs all over London as well as supports for electro dance scene heavy weights Boys Noize, Atrak, Crystal Castles, Booka Shade and the late Ajax. His beats range from eclectic nu’disco house to Balearic swagger from the English Summer as well as hints of French Discoteque to name a few. This Safari welcomes Tim to the shores of Byron Bay and we can’t wait to see what’s in store on December 22.
Supporting acts include Sunday Safari resident DJs And Oh!, Red Mane and Easy P.
This Safari will be held at Byron Bay’s Beach Hotel on Sunday December 22nd starting from 8:00pm. Tickets on sale now, available from www.sundaysafari.com.au and The Beach Hotel Bottle Shop.
