Rainbow Disco Club hits Potato Head Bali
Fresh from their sensationally well curated 10-year anniversary festival last month, Japan’s Rainbow Disco Club touch down at the mind-blowingly stunning surroundings of Potato Head Beach Club in Bali, on Saturday 8th June.
Rainbow Disco Club has garnered a reputation as being one of the most idyllic music festivals on the planet. Anyone lucky enough to have been in attendance in Higashi-Izu on the last weekend of April was treated to an ensemble cast of World disco luminaries, including Harvey, Hunee, Antal, Maurice Fulton, Ben UFO, Matthew Herbert and DJ Nobu. This time out they pack in a powerfully condensed offering in the shape of next-level Melbourne producer Tornado Wallace, Balearic sunset champion Phil Mison, Rainbow Disco Residents Sisi, Yosa and Carlos, alongside Potato Head resident and disco legend Pete Herbert.
Tornado Wallace's early releases started out on a strong footing - and he continually pushes the envelope - with each new release seemingly more intricate and experimental than the last. He's released on Running Back, Delusions Of Grandeur, ESP Institute, Beats In Space and a ton of other hot labels. From Padlin’ all the way through to Bit 1, his records get plenty of attention on the platters at Cosmic Tiger HQ.
Phil Mison, AKA Cantoma, has been putting his blissful selections to full effect since his early warm-up slots at London's Milk Bar led to a residency at the birthplace of the sunset, Cafe Del Mar in Ibiza. He's released a string of compilations as well as an ever expanding catalogue of his own exquisite productions on labels including Claremont 56, Music for Dreams and Highwood. More on him here.
Rainbow Disco bring along residents Sisi, Yosa and Carlos to represent their sound. Sisi is one of Tokyo’s finest selectors and regularly plays at local hotspots Vent, Unit and Contact. Yosa has released high-grade deep house cuts on labels including Classic, Compost, and Dirt Crew. Carlos is one of the co-founders of RDC, and well worth checking out.
Pete Herbert has been releasing consistently top-drawer disco and house flavoured records for the best part of two decades, on labels including Eskimo, Paper, Disco Deviance and Maxi Discs. He collaborates with Phil Mison as Reverso 58, and in recent years moved over to the Island of Gods full time to take up the position of Music Director and resident at Potato Head, Bali. He completes a seriously generous lineup, and this is most certainly one for the diaries.
