It has been a long time since we’ve heard anything from the infamous Art Smock.. I managed to get a cheeky hour long recording on Saturday night so people would believe he is still out there… Fresh back from Jamaica i hear… But who knows really….
Lucy’s label Stroboscopic Artefacts launched in 2009 with his EP ‘Why Dont You Change’, this set the tone for where the label was headed… Deep into dub-land…
Having a background in experimental sound design, his music toys with the listeners head, pulsating techno rhythms and cavernous ambiance couldn’t possibly be safe for ones brain. On the dancefloor be very aware of an incurring aneurysm. The SSA sound is intelligent, nasty and elegant all at the same time.
Lucy having now released with Luke Slater’s Mote Evolver, Chris Liebing’s CLR, Meerestief Records, Perspectiv and Time Is Now, all whilst holding down regular club nights the worlds best techno venues gives him all the know-how and skills that only experience can give.
Supported by the one and only HMC, Discovery records Nenad, TEA’s James Manning and Electronic Soul’s Trebek.
Don’t Sleep on this one!

Pics from our intimate evening with Recloose and Frank Booker. It was a great night of music, and i have to thank them both for being such great guys to host.
No recordings of this night… If you missed it…. It’s your own fault
Big thanks to Pete Nakos for the dope shots! xx
Recloose and Frank Booker have been teaming up for years running the now infamous Hit It And Quit It radio show. Broadcasting live every week from Auckland, they have made their name playing the freshest underground tunes from all around the world. HIQI has even been headhunted to be Simulcast on legendary Japanese Radio station Shibuya FM.
These guys are sure to turn it on. Recloose has become somewhat of distant resident at Cuckoo, playing in our first months of opening and then again in ’09. His sets are eclectic and have zero boundaries, pulling out everything from Rare Disco jams, through Boogie and House, Techno but always manages to keep his Detroit soul intact.
Frank Booker has had some real successes with his productions. Releasing two Ep’s for Untracked in 2009, gained him world wide attention, and when you get Gillies Peterson on board you know your in for a ride. In 2010 Frank pumped out a Mix CD on Wonderful Noise, followed by two Ep’s with remixes by Mark E, Kez YM and Cosmic Boogie.
As a duo they have become well renowned for their abilities in turning a party on its head. Playing shows at some of Australia’s premier parties including the Sydney Festival and of course Mad Racket, not only that but all around the world..
Entry is a measly $10 on the door, so do yourself a favor and don’t miss this one!
Check out the mix below, featuring Recloose tearing it up for the 10′s of thousands of Resident Advisor fans. Its a mad blend of house, pushing the boundaries as always.
Fresh recordings from our first of many live only nights at Cuckoo. Sine Wave Concept brings together electronic producers who have a talent for recreating their music off the cuff and in the club!
Our first attempt of this night was a great success. With live sets from Flowerpot, M-Thirteen and Rob-Soft, there was a great variety of Techno music. Looking forward to hearing what’s coming for the next one!
So here we have M-Thirteen’s set from the night. It’s a beauty, lush synths, gritty drums, strange vocals… A great listen! Click the pic below to get to the sets page.
Cuckoo Music Presents a one off special event. A rare night of underground electronic music, involving two integral producers of the Berlin techno scene. Tom Clark and Guido Schneider. For Tom Clark this will be his second visit to Cuckoo, after playing a sellout show in 2009 he is amped to get back behind the decks and flog Cuckoo’s Funktion 1 system! Guido on the other hand has never toured Australia before, quite surprising considering his consistent release schedule over the last 10 years, with a number of his tunes circa ’06 becoming late night underground club classics. This will be a rare opportunity for lovers of Techno, Minimal, and House to be immersed by two old hands of the sound. Not to be missed.

FIRST RELEASE ONLY $15 SO GET IN QUICK!!
Tom Clark is an original native of the city that is sometimes too often referred to as the capital of techno, Berlin. Unimpressed by the hype, Tom’s label Highgrade is not only an integral part of Berlin’s success story but also stands for the fresh and new sound of the city. Tom’s own releases and DJ sets have been detonating on the dance floors of the city and the rest of the world for a decade now.
His DJ sets have become synonymous for intense, diverse and suspenseful club nights. His style varies from minimal deep tech/house, Detroit Techno, Electro and House. So naturally producing his own music was just a matter of time. Next to producing his own music he also does remixes for International top acts and has been featured on various imprints. His first album “King Tide” was released on the Swiss Minimal House label Morris/Audio. He has since released various Maxi’s on Morris/Audio and other labels. His second album “Service Station” was released on Highgrade in 2006. Although being extremely busy with his label and club work he has still found the time to finish his third album “Pressure Points” An album which shows his musical development.
Guido Schneider founded his own Label “Neue Welten“ in 1995 based in Celle, Germany. In 1996 he moved to Berlin where he began to fully focus on music. His productions and co-productions (e.g. as “Schneider & Radecki“ with Sammy Dee) always sounded sort of minimal, but were also exceptionally functional as he dared to stick his head out of his soundlab at an early stage. This together with the experiences from various live performances helped to perfect his tracks.
Changes marked the beginning of the new millennium: Guido closed down his label “Neue Welten” and met vocalist Florian Schirmacher. After the first joint studio sessions it became obvious that Guido‘s production and Florian‘s vocal skills would complement each other perfectly and together they founded the project Glowing Glisses, which under the pseudonym they released 3 singles and the album “Silver Surfer“ on Poker Flat.
In 2002 Guido and Glowing Glisses joined Steve Bug, Märtini Brös and Martin Landsky on the Poker Flat World Tour. Back in Germany, highly inspired, Guido began focusing on his solo project “Guido Schneider“. His first Poker Flat single “Triple Bolted“ (pfr35) and the track “Moved“ showed Guido’s huge potential.
Two 12“s followed in 2004: “Unterwegs mit Guido Schneider“ (pfr47, including a fantastic remake of “Moved“) and “Oh My Buffer“ (pfr53). These two 12“s finally put Guido on the map of internationally acclaimed producers. Guido was also Steve Bug‘s first choice to remix his unstoppable classic “Loverboy“ for Poker Flat‘s 50th anniversary release. With his remix of B.’s “Minikool” he ended an extremely successful year 2004. In 2005 Guido first contributed the exclusive track ”Las Cuerdas de Las Canarias” to the “Poker Flat Volume Four“ album, alongside artists such as Steve Bug, Donnacha Costello, Argy and Jeff Samuel.
Recently, Gudio joined forces with his old friend Sammy Dee (Pantytec) again, with whom he had worked years ago as Schneider & Radecki. The result of this reunion was the Clubcharts and Dancefloors ruling Poker Flat 12” “Styleways” (pfr63), which also was licensed to Richie Hawtin’s „Transitions“ album (Mute).
