Electronic this week: A huge techno party is coming and Honey Dijon makes her return

Alongside a fine event from the crew at Sex Tags Mania.

A team of promoters responsible for the likes of Inner Varnika, Strawberry Fields, Common Ground and Lucid have come together to launch a new mid-scale party at Northcote Town Hall Arts Centre called Something Unlimited, and they’ve assembled a cracking lineup for the inaugural event. Leading the charge will be Detroit house and techno don Rick Wilhite, with the first lady of deep house Lady Blacktronika, American celestial house producer Urulu and Japanese crate-digger Mori Ra backing him up. Local support comes from Adriana, Allysha Joy, Blume, Darcy Justice, DJ JNETT, Gregor, Loure, Mildlife, Sunnyside, Sui Zhen and Wax’o Paradiso. The maze of side rooms will be decked out with installations courtesy of Confetti Studio, who’ve been brought on to art-direct the event. It goes down on Saturday February 16, tickets are on sale now.
 
It’s a busy week in Melbourne this week, here’s my two highlights. Thursday November 22 sees Common Ground hosting Honey Dijon at Xe54 in South Melbourne for their Summer Romance series. After an incredible Boiler Room set at Sugar Mountain earlier this year, the Chicago house music queen is back. She went all out at Strawberry Fields this weekend and is ready for a more intimate club celebration of music and love. Whiskey Houston and Interstellar Fugitives will provide local support. Kicks off at 9pm. 
 
On Sunday November 25, the Norwegian man behind the mysterious labels Sex Tags Mania, Sex Tags UFO, Sex Tags Amfibia and Mongo Fett, DJ Fett Burger, will be lighting up the roof of the Evelyn Hotel in Fitzroy. Fett Burger and his brother Sotofett are famed for some of the wildest dance floors the worlds even seen, add in our Butter Session label boys Sleep D and Lori and you’ve got an incredible afternoon/evening of tunes. Hopefully the weather holds out for it. The final allocation is still on sale, highly recommend you grab a ticket while they’re still out there. It kicks off at 2pm.
