We’re steaming on towards our second episode of our Adelaide Fringe show, Basement Beats this Thursday night, and it seems like word is getting around. We had a fine turnout last week for our show featuring Amoeba Muzak, which ramped up from chilled out a/v zone to pumping underground club with the transition from Supermarket to Amoeba Muzak beats. While Em was VJing through the Amoeba Muzak set, I shot a little video which we’ve just finished cutting and assembling to some sweet original minimal techno from the dancefloor driving duo. Relive the party (or see what you missed out on) with the clip below!

Going to air yesterday, the widget below launches the Adelaide Fringe special episode of Star Formation, an internet radio show produced by Young Australia Productions. In part an educational institution powered by youth, they’re a great supporter of our creative community here in Adelaide and their website is worth a visit. Tune in to the widget below if you want to hear an in-depth interview with me about Supermarket’s recent exploits (including Basement Beats). No, I don’t have a nasty lisp… that’s just a crazy audio compression artifact!
Word about Basement Beats has been hitting the press too it seems, and we appear to have a new friend at local newspaper The Independent Weekly, if Jo Vabolis’ review of our premiere show is anything to go by. The fine young chaps at Merge Magazine also appear to have a soft spot for our work, listing us as one of their 10 ‘Fringe of the Fringe’ must-see picks. Thanks fellas! If you’re unable to pick up a copy of Merge Magazine, you can actually download the whole mag via their website and we can’t recommend it highly enough. It’s always a fine read and has breathed some fresh air into the free street-press scene here in Adelaide over the last few months.
So, if this has whet your appetite for some Basement Beats, this week’s show features DJ Tr!p and is set to go off. Just make your way down to Big Star CD’s, 197 Rundle St at 7.30pm on Thursday night (March 12) and bring $12/10 for a ticket to two hours of audio-visual bliss. There will also be a guest appearance by an Atari 2600 console- a perfect compliment to Tr!p’s promised set of original chiptune breakbeats. Tickets are also available online from FringeTIX. See you there!
