A message from Clayton Thomas:

After 7 years of rocking this sweet beautiful continent, I'm leaving to rock Sydney one more time.

The relocation would not be right without a 2 day party where i can hug and kiss you all and dance like a maniac and play a marathon of awesome music. As you do.

Biliana Voutchkova: violin
Her constant research as a creative artist spans the widest possible range of sound and movement and extends her sonic, physical and technical capacities evolving into the development of a highly individual artistic musical language.

As much inspired by the minimalism of Steve Reich as by the electronic deconstructions of Squarepusher.
