[the Box]

  • After our unexpected one off party on the terrace of the Bourbon, [THE BOX] returns to the Bunker for our fantastic December party featuring Lost Baggage and Spice resident Murat Kilic and FBI Radio's Luke Wallace. Raised in the suburbs of Sydney by strict Turkish parents on a diet of classical Turkish music played back on a Grundig reel to reel player not much smaller than a fridge. Listening to "foreign" music, least of all bangin' electronica was far from acceptable and certainly not tolerated in the Kilic household. Despite these hurdles, as avid young music lovers, Murat and his sister were able to maintain a healthy stash of records, mix-tapes and music videos under the cupboard in their bedroom for many years. Maybe this was the perfect upbringing for him because this deprivation has yielded a profound and undying love for hoarding music and an ear for anything to seriously rock a dance-floor. Murat has been an avid collector of music (particularly on vinyl) since his early teens circa 1982 when he used to dodge school to sniff-out rare wax at Sydney's second-hand records stores Ashwoods, Martins and The Record Plant. Murat plays at Australia's leading tech clubs regularly - in Melbourne: Pretty Simple @ Ffour, La Di Da, Darkbeat @ Brown Alley and in Sydney: Lost Baggage @ The Cross, SPICE @ The Bunker, Nevermind and Chinese Laundry. Murat has a strong tech influence and this is reflected during his sets. His style is an intelligent blend of minimal/tech, tech house, techno and acid. "At the end of the day, it is all about educating the crowd without boring them. Teaching people to appreciate new music whilst still getting them to dance themselves to oblivion". More recently Murat has been gaining recognition as a producer. Already with a remix released on local based label BEEF, and forthcoming releases on Olive Koletski's Stil Vor Talent and Milanese label Stereo Seven. Luke and Murat will be supported on the night by [THE BOX] residents Michael Doney, Defined By Rhythm, Loosekaboose and Jimmy Posters. Entry is $5 before midnight $10 after. COME IF YOU DARE!!!
