And now to finish the year in the correct manner, an artist who is actually quite difficult to introduce. Dj Koze is no stranger to Production, song writing, and especially not performance. As a producer, Koze’s work has spanned across genres in constantly evolving, fresh, original forms. As a Dj he has become known as one of the worlds best, holding down SPEX magazines title of “Dj Of The Year” from 1999 – 2004.
This is undoubtedly a special night for Cuckoo. And we would love to share it with the people who can appreciate how lucky we are to have Koze here with us.
Tickets are $55 and are available from
|A true purveyor of the sounds from Detroit, Chicago and New York, with a raw, modern twist…A Dj. since 93. A producer since 98. A true student of the music/culture. Amir founded Vanguard Sound in February 2006. After making his presence felt in the Chicago club scene via a meteoric rise culminating a Dj watch feature in Chicago’s 5 magazine, he completely disappeared and went beneath the underground to focus solely on advancing his production skills.

Flako (Project: Mooncircle/UK) – First ever Australian tour

Doors at 9pm
How Green (Live)
Unintentionally off-the-grid and committed to his personal sound evolution, Flako is more of a Soul-documentarian than a typical beat maker. With roots in Chile, raised in Germany, and currently living in London via Berlin – the man himself is a melange of flavor. His particular sonic palette is a mercurial blend of warm analogue colors and cutting-edge design. His writing is marked by manifest emotion.
Perhaps it’s because of his own cultural diversity -as a Chilean-born, German-raised global resident, otherwise known as Darío Rojo Guerra- and the fact he’s been championed by artists the world over, from LA’s Gaslampkiller and Glasgow’s Hudson Mohawke. Or maybe it’s as a mere product of our global culture. Whatever it is, fLako creates an other-worldy escape from the urbanised surroundings of an overcrowded world. Found-sound samples are absorbed into a textured soundscape of bubbling signals, dissipating into skittering drum beats and unexpected drops, following in the wake of a typically spectral vocal delivery. Those vocals come as one of Guerra’s many pseudonyms, his easy-listening alter ego, Dirg Gerner (RBMA NYC 2013 Participant), who also appears on 2011 fLako track ‘Lonely Town’. Over the exotic rhythms of hollow acoustics and marimbas, he croons, “Have you ever felt the urge to be someone else?” and by the end of Eclosure, it almost feels like you could be.
The Nightime Drama lads are back at Cuckoo, and they have a awesome act to rekindle our love for their parties. Lets let their blurb do the talking…
Nightime Drama presents the debut performance from Workshop label owner Lowtec, aka Jens Kuhn.
Jens discography stretches back over fifteen years, starting out with a variety of deep, dusty minimal house cuts on labels such as Out To Lunch, Playhouse and David Moufgang’s (aka Move D) label Source Records.
2006 saw the birth of Workshop, which started out with label partner Even Tuell.
This hand-stamped, left of field house label has made a home for like minded artists such as Kassem Mosse and Move D (just to name a few).
We are fortunate enough to have Lowtec play a special LIVE performance alongside Adelaide’s very own HMC, with support from Trav Bell and Brother Fox (Jonathan Bennett).
Doors open 10pm
$15 door entry before midnight / $20 afterwards
Drink specials on the night!!!
Quirky and lofi, as always. Here is the clip for our latest release
