Coming off the end of a most successful year Prognosis are getting set to usher in 2012 the only way they know how – hot beats, good times and a shitload of PROG!
Headlining festivities for this edition are Chris Meehan and The Chunky Fuckers.
Somewhat of a legendary figure in prog-circles around town, Chris Meehan has done it all – from holding residencies at some of Melbourne’s most influential and successful club nights (Qbar Sundays, Republic @ Room 680), through to supporting major international guests such as Sasha, Digweed, Satoshi, Hernan, Seamen and Nick Warren. Representing brands such as global Underground and Renaissance whenever in town, Chris is well respected by his peers and punters and not only recognized as a true DJ, but also a highly accomplished producer, with recent releases on Avante Garde, Baroque and Movement Records, to name a few.
Stalwarts in the Melbourne prog scene, The Chunky Fuckers (Jayson Holden and Herc Kass) are well versed in all that is funky and driving. Not just DJ’s however, the boys are extremely talented on the production tip, and with third member in tow, Adam Holden, they have had a bevvy of releases out on Underground City, Polytechnic, Movement recordings, Overground Digital and Indigo. Needless to say, when they hit the decks for a 2 hour feature set – mayhem is set to ensue!
On support duties, we’re very excited to welcome newcomer to the decks – Thomm Brooke. Always on the lookout for fresh and interesting talent, our ears were pricked when we heard his latest promo mix. Not intent on letting such talent go to waste in the bedroom, we’ve managed to convince him to come down and open up proceedings with his mix of deep and sublime beats.
Residents J-Slyde, Simon Murphy and Aaron Static will also be in tow – bringing to the table their usual blend of upfront prog and tech tunes.
With our two resident VJs on a break, visual duties for this edition will be handled by the extremely talented Manoeuvre.tv aka Richard De Souza. One of Melbourne’s, if not Australia’s, most talented visual artists, Richard has done them all – Big Day Out, Summadayze, Parklife, along with visual production on Ministry Of Sound commercials, and much much more. To say we’re in good hands would be an understatement!
