The night before New Year’s . . .
DJS From Mars headline a pre-new Year’s Eve bash at EAST nightclub, Broadbeach, on December 30. Dubbed Friday Night On The Moon, the event marks the DJ duo’s only Gold Coast show as part of their Popf***erz Australian Tour. Bringing a mash-up attitude to the electro-house genre, DJS From Mars first earned attention in 2004. They’ve since remixed and sampled a plethora of pop hits, with their videos earning 10 million views and counting on Youtube. Now one of the biggest acts in the mash-up sphere, they’ve remixed tracks for Fragma, Ciara, Cascada, Brooklyn Bounce, Coolio and Ennio Morricone. Their work is on the playlists of industry heavyweights, including David Guetta, Carl Cox and Bob Sinclar, with demand for their live sets taking them everywhere from Sweden, Germany, France and Italy to China, the US, Portugal, Spain, Poland and Brazil. Known for hiding their heads behind cartoon boxes a la Daft Punk, the duo describe their music as ‘‘bastard pop meets alien electro’’.
DJS From Mars, DJ Jolyon Petch and DJ Kurt Joseph play EAST, in Broadbeach, on December 30 at 9pm.
