HOT SINCE 82 + KERRI CHANDLER + DJ JNETT
In the midst of his epic summer-long Labyrinth residency at Pacha Ibiza, Hot Since 82 is truly hotter than ever and is thrilled to confirm he will be bringing his much-hyped Knee Deep party to the iconic Forum Melbourne on Friday 23 November.
Hot Since 82 made himself a dance music household name with his track ‘Restless’ and has continued on an upwards trajectory ever since. His latest track ‘Buggin’ is quickly becoming the biggest underground club track of the European summer with huge radio support worldwide, including Pete Tong’s Essential New Tune and a fixture in Radio One Dance Chart, a Beatport No.1 and massive Spotify numbers.
As the cult of Hot Since 82 continues to grow, his Knee Deep parties become more and more in-demand. In true Knee Deep form, the Forum will stay open beyond normal operating hours, with the party going until 2am. Get a taste of what’s in store by watching his full set for The Lab in Ibiza from last year here.
To take things up another notch, Hot Since 82 brings with him legend, icon and purveyor of house music – the inimitable Kerri Chandler – for his first visit to Australia in over 5 years. With influences tracing back to his New Jersey upbringing, Kerri injects soul and disco into every set. Check out his set at the 2017 Southport Weekender Festival for Mixmag.
Opening proceedings at Forum Theatre will be Melbourne’s-own house music purveyor DJ JNETT. With a career of around two decades, DJ JNETT’s repertoire is arguable one of the most wide-spanning – from dub to disco, reggae to rhumba. As Thump put it, ‘What JNETT doesn’t know about Melbourne’s club culture history is not worth knowing.’ Check her set at Sugar Mountain in 2016 for Boiler Room.
‘For anyone with an ear in the tech house scene, Hot Since 82 would be a name that is consistently being thrown around.’ – Stoney Roads
‘The giant air-conditioned stage was jam-packed with deep music lovers, smashed at its legal capacity.’ – Billboard Magazine on Hot Since 82’s Coachella set
Don’t miss Knee Deep in Melbourne on Friday 23 November, where three of the biggest names in house music will dig deep into their crates to give music fans an all-encompassing stomp session that will journey through Hot Since 82, Kerri Chandler and DJ JNETT’s influences and current favourites alike.
Tickets to the Forum Melbourne show on Friday 23 November go on sale via Ticketmaster on Friday 3 August. Don’t miss out on the party of the year!
