With smalltown we like to keep things small. No sorry we don’t just joking.

Keeping us entertained at the next edition is South America’s finest DJ duo Fur Coat, who like Pablo Escobar, is known for having their own TV show. No sorry they don’t have a tv show and that was a lazy comparison. They do however have an impressive arsenal of DJ weapons that probably should be illegal, and they are currently hotter than El Nino. Now that’s HOT.

Do you need a consonant? What about some live gear? No problem let MR.G sort you out. This veteran knows his tech and he loves to show you how it’s done… properly. Come join us and bathe in his warm analogue sound, and lose yourself in his impressive techno history.

Don’t even think about it. This one’s for you. Special Day / Night event Melbourne Cup weekend.

Previously one half of 'The Advent', Colin Mcbean (Mr G) left the duo to pursue his own path. After some time out of the limelight Colin reappeared back on the scene with 2010's monster Album 'STILL HERE' on the mighty REKIDS imprint, hailed by the press as one of the hottest albums of that year by one off the house masters. Many remixes later and additional releases on BASS CULTURE, HUDDTRAX, AFRICASAFARI, MOODS AND GROOVES DETROIT AND HIS OWN LABEL, PHOENIX G, Mr G is preparing to drop his follow up album, again with Rekids called "STATE OF FLUX". Expect another journey into MR G's G FUNK SOUND and yet another monster release from the Label behind Nina Kraviz and Radio Slave.

 

Fur Coat... a rare, one of a kind piece, which is why it seems such a fitting title for the Venezuelan pairing of Sergio Munoz and Israel Sunshine. Theirs is a story that involves deep beats, rolling grooves, alluring breakdowns and large helpings of funk. Its a story where a passion for salsa and soul, blended with a solid base of love for all things electronic, created an act which would be imprinted into the minds of music heads everywhere. Its a story of deep driven beats that encapsulates the mind and moves the feet. This is he story of Fur Coat... It was a chance meeting at a house party in 2004 that would throw the duo together and lead to a musical intertwining which would drape itself royally over the shoulders of the music industry. After being snapped up by Crosstown Rebels founder Damian Lazarus in 2010, they remixed Russ Yallop’s ‘The Crossroads’ and then released their debut EP “Space Ballad”, featuring an unforgettable edit by TEED. However it would be their release ‘You and I’ featuring vocals from Cari Golden that would put the name Fur Coat on the tongue of weekend warriors across the globe. The track became an anthem at BPM festival and the Miami Winter Music Conference, and became one of the biggest deep house records of 2012. With a momentum that showed no sign of slowing down, Fur Coat would enter 2012 with ventures onto labels such as Noir, Get Physical and My Favorite Robot. As word grew of the pairs unique dance floor clout, as did their bookings, they soon found themselves with a packed dj diary. This saw them dropping their infections grooves at some of the finest dance floors across the world including Warehouse Project (Manchester), The Electric Pickle (Miami) DC10 (Ibiza), Warung (Brazil), Cafe d'Anvers (Belgium) and Showcase (Paris) and many more. Not content with stopping there, the release of their debut album ‘Mind
