"Omni dimensional art sk*nk, transnational tr*nny-f*ggot community icon, high priest ex of dance floor oracles; X& has taken many forms and been called many names.
It’s about time they started twiddling nobs on the decks as well as the dark room. Unbound from all barriers like genre and gender, you might expect X& to play you everything from the ethereal depths to cosmic heights, journeying through high femme vocal bangers and dark throbbing beats to entrance and weave magic.
See you in the ether!"
Back in December 2023 MEZ joined us to celebrate the BARBA 'nueve' BDAY “Pulling much of his inspiration from the golden era of house music in New York and Chicago, MEZ seamlessly weaves between classic and contemporary sounds. You can hear influences from the old guard through his smooth and long-form mixing style, using songs as tools to create sonic environments that feel fresh, but decidedly old-school.
DJs WRUFF DJs (Cam & Nate) are based in Boorloo // Perth and love everything on the deeper side of the musical spectrum.
In their sets you’ll find a base layer of deep house, progressive and dub techno, lashings of nu-disco and vocal house (served with a wink and a smile) and the occasional pop remix because at the end of the day we’re big, old queers.
From moments of queer dancefloor euphoria to ‘90s rave nostalgia, SMB8’s groove-laden library will get your hips moving.
SMB8 has played in some of Naarm’s most iconic venues, including Revs, New Guernica, and ATET, Dark Mofo and Folsom festival in Berlin. We look forward to have him at BARBA NYD.
