ITSUGlenn Anthony from Ground Control Coffee organises a charity event once a year and he is about to produce his biggest effort to date.

Glenn and Lu:sid Loops, who are community of electronic music enthusiasts who want to inspire positive change, are set to present Dwellers of the Deep Electronic Music Fiesta which showcases 10 Australian music producers, who are giving their time and talent to throw an epic 10 hour dance party for a great cause.

This one-day mini festival is a fundraiser for Sea Shepherd and Weasel Warriors, with all proceeds being donated to these two charities.

Headlining the even are Richard Curtis and Itsu – Some might say that Itsu suffers from a kind of musical ADHD. A compulsion to create music that manages to walk the boundaries between Glitch Hop, Psychedelic Breaks, IDM, Electrohouse and Drum and Bass, while somehow avoiding sounding like an iPod stuck on random.

This project is about emotive, deeply layered music that’s equally at home on the dance floor as it is though a pair of headphones in a darkened room.

Quirky, playful melodies and intricate, otherworldly sound design meet funky, glitched out beats and monstrous bass lines to create a constantly evolving vibe.

Since 2007, Richard Curtis’s contribution to his local electronic dance music community has been positively enormous. Amongst regular spots at top festival institutions such as Stereosonic, Future Music Festival (Cocoon Heroes), Manifest and White Paradise, Rich Curtis had been running the self- created underground club night Ulterior, which has debuted many international acts in Brisbane and Gold Coast nightclubs.!

Rich’s travels through Latin America, a land where Progressive House thrives, influences and breathes its way through his musical output vividly. It is within these travels that Rich has experienced clubbing culture at its full potential. Inspired by these experiences, Rich continues to expand onto the global dance music scene, including annual tours of Latin America. !

This event is a common ground for music producers, DJs and show-goers to connect and make good stuff happen – the aim to facilitate meaningful events that inspire people towards a more positive future.

Music will be kicking off in the Byron Brewery beer garden from 2pm showcasing some of our great local dance music producers. From 8pm till midnight the party moves into the main auditorium with it’s huge sound system for our headline acts

The event will also be introducing local duo SPORK.


Tickets are $35 including dinner at Byron Brewery.
