AdvertisementJoin us for the launch of Powertrip's first solo-artist release, DEEP GECKO ENERGY by Warrang-based artist salllvage.
DEEP GECKO ENERGY is the first label release for DJ, producer and dancer Rowan Savage. Having cut his teeth in Warrang’s ballroom scenes - as both a dancer, DJ and producer under the name Guy Ruin - Savage’s practice takes its starting point within queer ballroom culture and the celebration of queer Indigeneity. His work has been featured at Soft Centre, Essential Tremors (curated by Angus Andrew of Liars), Carriage Works LiveDreams and Midsumma Festival.
Under a new moniker, salllvage, queer Indigeneity becomes launched into space, and an offering to the burgeoning field of Indigenous futurism is made. Created from field recordings taken on his Country, Kombumerri Country (located in Southeast so-called Queensland), Savage’s music channels his relationship to Country within the esoteric landscape of club music. Sludgey, dubby, bass-y and rhythmic – Deep Gecko Energy is a release that crawls under the skin. Across each of the five tracks - ranging from hard hitting dancefloor bangers to the more subtle rhythms of bass music - the listener is immersed within a constantly shifting field of textures, dynamics, and grit that at once reaches forward into new sonic territories while harnessing a deeply familiar fundamental energy from within.
Tickets are $10-30 sliding scale on the door (u choose), free for mob.
This party will take place on the lands of the Wurundjeri tribe of the Kulin Nation. Powertrip wishes to pay respects to their elders past and present.
