Whomp! & Adapted Records presents a night of Funk Fueled cutting edge Glitch Hop, featuring 2 international heavyweights and some of Australia's premier Glitch artists and local supports!
And a secret international guest all the way from the US!
MOULDY SOUL (UK)
Mouldy Soul is the warped electronic ramblings of 23 year old child Richard Carrigan. Mouldy Soul’s style could be described as a irresistible mixture of funky grooves over a backdrop of intricate glitched up beats, served on a gleaming platter of delectable bass with a side of luscious lead soup. With support from artists like Tipper, Opiuo, Vent, Hedflux, AMB, Mood Deluxe, Bad Tango and Prometheus; it’s no surprise how far Mouldy Soul has come in a little under a year.
Mouldy Soul is the sonic equivalent of a multi dimensional Octopus with tentacles made of lasers; undulating in a ferocious sea of confusion.
MISTER ROGERS (US) - https://soundcloud.com/mr-rogers
Mr. Rogers' sounds have long captivated the West Coast underground arts community, but now the secret is out and this pioneering producer is poised to conquer the far reaches of the dance floor with his twisted, psychedelic take on bass-heavy midtempo, and glitch-ridden breaks.
Mr. Rogers first emerged in the San Francisco underground in 2006, and caught the attention of many, with his sets of 100% originally produced material. His completely unique tunes have bounced faces off crowds at numerous major music festivals on the West Coast including Shambhala, Esthetic Evolution, Bounce Festival, Raindance, Astral Harvest, Symbiosis Gathering, Burningman, and many more.
Following the success of multiple releases on his own label, Ooze System Recordings, and a 4 month long tour across over 40 cities in North America, Mr. Rogers has since been in the studio crafting a whole slew of new material. He is set to launch himself even further, in late 2012, with a new EP, his 3rd full length album.

Based in Melbourne, Goosebumpz has become a driving force within the Australian electronic music scene and as a result, is a regular fixture at many reputable outdoor dance parties, festivals and club gigs nationwide. Capitalising on the bass music movement Down Under, Goosebumpz is renowned for his extremely tight production, attention to detail and psy influenced sound design.
These days, he’s moving air and inciting dance floor mayhem with a free-range exploration of genres, where juicy, psychedelic Dubstep meets staunch, mid-tempo breaks and funky Glitch-Hop. Without being limited to any one particular defining sound or style of production, his music is broad, often infused with organic instrumentation in cohesion with tough, textured bass work and emotive, synthesised melodic counterparts.
Having played at some of Australia’s most acclaimed festivals including Splendour in the Grass, Maitreya and Earth Freq, in addition to supporting some of the biggest names in the business such as Bassnectar, Tipper, Vibesquad and Opiuo, Goosebumpz is a well respected producer within the Australian bass music community and festival circuit.
With releases on Empathy, Hopskotch and Enig’matik Records among other eminent labels, accompanied by an arsenal of fresh, phat, cheeky beats and an energetic approach to his live performances, Goosebumpz has begun to make his mark on the underground electronic music scene in Australia as well internationally.
STAUNCH - https://www.facebook.com/staunchmusic?fref=ts

And STAUNCH is exactly that - bass heavy, funk laden mid-tempo breaks that are sure to make a mess of any dance floor…
