Sun Down Circle 5th birthday at Potato Head Bali
Potato Head’s very special Sun Down Circle event celebrates making it to five years young on 3rd August, with sunrise and sunset celebrations to be brought home by some super special guests.
The much loved SDC offers a platform for the very best international artists as well as home-grown and locally based contributors. To usher in their fifth year, they welcome Young Marco and CC:Disco! alongside local favourites Dea Barandana and Belda.
We love the shit out of Young Marco and we know we're not alone. His star has risen relentlessly over the course of the last decade. A musical talent born out of the Amsterdam club scene, his boundary-defying DJ sets and taste for wildly eclectic sounds - from African grooves and Middle Eastern disco all the way through to industrial techno - are what set him apart. He’s produced music for Rush Hour, Lovefinger’s ESP Institute and more recently has become a mainstay on the Dekmantel roster.
He first appeared on our radar in 2012 when the needle hit the record on his ‘Video Days’ release. Impossible to categories in terms of genre, the blissed-out, rush inducing track incorporates stunning melody, rich chords and powerful bass - it still sounds completely fresh today. His following album ‘Biology’ helped cement his reputation and he’s continued to release consistently great records, with a body of work including remixes for Francis Bebey, Joakim, Soft Rocks and others.
CC:Disco! brings a lot to the party. A shining example of one of the many bright lights from Melbourne’s thriving music community, she’s a regular player on the local club scene, also hosting the essential Friday night party-starting ‘Smoke and Mirrors’ radio show on PBS. Her dynamic sets have since led to regular international club and festival bookings - playing alongside Moodymann, Theo Parrish and many others - as well as guest appearances on Worldwide, NTS, and Red Light Radio.
All taking place, as ever, in the stunning surroundings of Potato Head Bali. There really isn’t much not to love about this prospect, and we highly recommend making it down if you’re anywhere nearby. Tickets available here.
