HOUSE PARTY x Vivid
40/44 Wentworth Ave
This Vivid, Harry’s & Picnic bring to you the next installment in our beloved House Party series. Honing in on two Australian dance music icons, one established and one emerging - we’re set for one of our biggest sessions yet with music that spans the decades.
Cut Copy DJ’s
Dan Whitford is the founding member behind the creation of the seminal Australian band Cut Copy. Etched into the collective memory of dance music fans of the early 2000’s, Cut Copy blazed an unfamiliar path, with their bright synth-pop compositions adhering to the four to floor energy of dance music of the time.
Turing the world, Cut Copy played thousands of sold out live shows, and countless DJ sets at clubs and after parties. Harnessing this experience, Dan Whitford (Cut Copy DJ’s) takes to the decks at Harry’s for what is sure to be an invaluable insight into his creative mind and dance music influences.
A standout sound in the Australian electronic landscape, Harvey Sutherland brings live instrumentation and rhythmic flair to the traditionally straight and sequenced world of dance music. Still rooted in soul, disco and funk, the modern techno universe was not exactly where he fit – and so Harvey Sutherland instead sought to create a world of his own. “Looking for songs in strange places”, as he says, but in ways only he knows how to look.
Touring Australia in 2018 with band, Harvey Sutherland performed his compositions as they were intended to be heard, live, raw and oozing with soul. Returning to the DJ decks for Harry’s Vivid 2019 program, we get an opportunity to peruse the record bag and creative mind of an Australian dance innovator.
A carefully crafted lineup of emerging Australian artists supports the two headliners for our most stacked House Parties to date.
Supports: Merph, Oscar + Andy, Rimbombo & Taridas
