On Saturday 4th August, UNDR Ctrl is taking over intimate warehouse space Red Rattler Theatre in Marrickvalle to celebrate 4 glorious years of doing our thang featuring a very special headline guest appearance alongside a heady mix of UNDR Ctrl veterans and a nu wave of emerging artists. Running over two levels, be sure to find our hidden disco room on the night and rock up in your freshest whites… as our annual dress code ‘Dress up all white on the night’ returns in style.
The past 12 months have been our biggest to date. In November we teamed up with our good friends at Motorik to launch / sell out Output Festival on Goat Island; a celebration of life, sound and dance featuring Optimo, Mall Grab, CC: DISCO! and Willaris K. The festival returns on November 24, so keep ya eyes peeled for the first line-up announcement. Further along Sydney Harbour, we hosted the 4th summer series of stunning sunsets aboard The Island LIVE with headliners Hayden James, Bag Raiders, Aston Shuffle, &ME, Paces, Set Mo and Cosmo’s Midnight. Just recently we brought back Mixmag’s live streaming parties, reborn as Miller Amplified, which has so far featured exclusive sets from Running Touch, Dena Amy, Willaris. K and Cosmo’s Midnight. In December we hosted the 5th edition of Musica Copa - our annual charity 5-a-side football tournament for the music industry, and in January we curated the Southern Sounds Area for the Electric Gardens Festival featuring the likes of Motez, Young Franco and Luke Million and pushing all an Australian line-up of electronic artists. Our latest event was the big sold out show for Claptone and his international Masquerade brand at Roundhouse in May, in partnership with Motorik again. Back on the agency front we’ve organised a number of national tours for our domestic artists including Set Mo, Bag Raiders, Just A Gent, MUTO, Roland Tings, Jensen Interceptor and Luen Jacobs plus a big run of shows for our international artists San Holo and DROELOE. It’s also been our absolute pleasure to welcome a few new faces to the roster in the shape of POLOSHIRT (the hot new collab from Polographia and Winston Surfshirt), groove queen Lex Deluxe, the new look #nextgen Purple Sneakers DJs trio and bitbird Records’ rising superstars DROELOE.
Our previous Birthday parties at Oxford Art Factory and Goodbar have been unforgettable nights, each year showcasing the many incredible talents we are proud to represent on the roster. This year we’ll be bringing the goods once again with a very special guest announced on the day of the show, alongside A-Teamers Motorik Vibe Council, Purple Sneakers DJs, Shantan Wantan Ichiban and DJ sets from Polographia and World Champion. Elsewhere expect tropical tunes from The Unmade Bed (one half of Bag Raiders), vinyl vibes from Life Of Leisure, strictly non-vinyl vibes from DJ Still Weevens, power moves from Lex Deluxe, and an exclusive CD Set from UNDR Ctrl head honcho The Essential Stix.
Having supported Oxfam over the years at the UNDR Ctrl Birthday, this year we are proudly donating all proceeds from the event to Headspace, with all performing artists giving their time for free. Headspace is a youth organisation offering support to those aged 12-25 years old on a range of issues including depression, anxiety, stress, alcohol and drug use, sexuality, sexual health, personal or family relationship issues and bullying.
