Live - ACM (Stable Music)
Melbourne local ACM, is known by many for his inspired, all hardware, live techno performances. Often playing with an element of improvisation, ACM keeps each set unique
and in the moment. ACM crafted his musical palette through his residencies as a DJ, playing house and techno at some of Melbourne’s most prominent nightspots. Those early days built the foundation for ACM’s live performance and production. A respected artist in the Melbourne techno scene for his experimental nature, ACM’s style is matured and characterised by his groovy bass lines, legato leads, and dreamy arpeggios.
Having supported some of the most revered names in house and techno, ACM aims to captivate his audience by drawing on his experiences as a DJ to tailor his sound live for the dance floor. With his execution thought out to the final reverberation, each element has its place in ACM’s live set.
Live - Tangent
Reuben Cumming, aka Tangent, is a newcomer to the Melbourne Techno scene with a huge love for polyrhythms and the squelch of a 303.
Previously, Reuben has worked as a sound engineer, sound designer and musician in both theatre and live music, having studied guitar and west African rhythms from a young age.
After years of performing in bands, his interest in technology combined with the frustration of being limited to a single instrument led him to live guitar looping and eventually, to creating live techno.
Reuben’s eyes were opened to the world of electronic music by artists such as Radiohead, Omar S, Honeysmack and particularly Four Tet’s productions and live performances, drawing him to live techno and producing dance music.
His love for techno was cemented when he discovered acid house and the sound of the Roland Tb303.
In his current live and hybrid sets, Reuben goes on an energetic, unpredictable and often improvisational tangent of techno which has been built from years of knob twiddling and party DJing.
