INTO THE GENRE BLENDER Brings together 3 vastly different live electronic bands to take you on a sonic journey through strange genre bending musical landscapes. (((VULTURES OF VENUE))) ** Electro.Glam - Space.Rock ** Born from the glam-infused wing of Britpop, Vultures of Venus combine fuzzy guitars, glistening keyboards and affected vocal stylings. There is a sense of fearlessness to the sounds and themes that is rare to find in an Australian band. Their energetic performances are influenced by some of the starkest, most danceable and lascivious music of last century.

Jarman Donohue (Medical tech by day and jedi bass guitar wobbler by night) has come together with Matty O'Brien (scientist and jazz trained drummer) to produce a 100% live set built with the foundations of dubstep, glitch-hop and junglistic rhythms. The boys use a MIDI bass guitar and MIDI drums to control two laptops, allowing them to shape a sound free of pre-programming and done totally on the fly. This coupled with a custom light and projection show (by Tommy Gunn), wild stage antics, crowd heckling and a dislike of shoes makes them a unique high energy act. http://www.menimitatingmachines.com/ ((( LAZY BOY PROACTIVE))) ** Electro.Pop Rock** LazyBoyProactive is a live Electronica outlet for Melbourne based singer, songwriter, and producer, Ank Juwaheer. Ank's musical journey began with “ Ziza ” a rock trio formed in 1997 in his native Mauritius. Their first album Blue, released in 2000 sold 25,000 copies, the band relocated to Melbourne, Australia in 2002, however we divided by personal differences in 2003. In 2004 while Ank was studying music at University , he discovered Melbourne's vibrant electronic music scene, becoming a regular at outdoor festivals and clubs. LazyboyProactive was formed in 2006, and hit the live scene, but it wasn't until an intense 10 months in a beach house studio on a remote island in 2009 for the sound to really take shape. Ank believes that in moments of chaos comes real art. His debut album “Kaos Dream” is released through Tempest Recordings. http://soundcloud.com/lazyboyproactive
