Club music has always lent itself well to the art of the remix. Over the past couple of years, though, it’s been bold enough to venture into more ‘posh’ territory, with synth-laden tunes being given the symphonic treatment.
From Carl Craig to Craig David to David Bowie, we’ve seen producers and the artists they’ve mixed going for a more ‘classic’ sound. Soon, everyone from Armand van Helden to Pete Tong were releasing full albums of club classics turned symphonic.
Now, to celebrate the last 30 years of dance music, comes ‘Synthony’: a unique collaboration between orchestra, DJs, live vocalists and feature musicians.
The super-charged and energetic show will feature some of the biggest dance anthems from icons such as Avicii, Eric Prydz, Fatboy Slim and Basement Jaxx, all backed with the full might of a 60+ piece Synthony Orchestra.
Performing throughout the night will be a bunch of talented Aussie artists including Miss Connie (of Sneaky Sound System fame), Ilan Kidron (The Potbelleez), Jenny B (Corona), Mobin Master, Andy Van (Madison Avenue / Vicious Records) and Mark Dynamix.
With an epic backdrop of visuals, lasers and a state-of-the-art sound system, Synthony promises to be a magical, uplifting, hands-in-the-air dance party like no other.
Take yourself down memory lane, and experience the real definition of genre-bleeding when dance and classical come together in aural splendour.
