@ Civic Underground

After the party is the afterparty….

OutsideIn Festival are proud to present the future of electronic music and club experience in a single, intimate venue as Berlin’s Objekt join Michigan’s Laurel Halo and South-Londoner Jam City for a night of universal sound on Australia’s best sound system.


A native instruments software developer with a degree in electronic engineering, Objekt’s (TJ Hertz) passion for unique, bottom-heavy techno has pushed speakers from the clubs of Tokyo to the basements of Berlin. From self-released White Labels to collaborations with SBTRKT and a release on the acclaimed Hessle Audio, Objekt is now a firm tastemaker favourite counting DJs like Oneman, Jamie XX and Night Slugs as his biggest fans.


Conceived between the legacy of Chicago house, Detroit techno, Grime and Club muziks, Jam City’s emotionally charged blueprints pay homage to influences both musical and meta-physical. Releasing almost exclusively on the acclaimed Night Slugs imprint, his EP’s (from the liquid grime of ‘Magic Drops’ to his highly sought-after Ecstasy Refix) has presented him as one of the UK’s most unique visionaries.

In 2012 the young South Londoner released his debut LP ‘Classical Curves’ to worldwide acclaim with a myriad of projects on the horizon. Expect elegance, violence, electricity, crashed motorcycles, parks at night and missed phone calls in a melting point of uninhibited rhythm.


With releases on Hippo’s in Tanks, RVNG Intl and Kode 9’s Hyperdub, Laurel Halo’s recorded soundscapes (direct from Ann Arbor, Michigan) carve a visceral shape in American Electronic Music.

Her debut ‘Hour Logic’ was released in 2011 to great fanfare before releasing under the club-oriented pseudonym King Felix. Having just released her latest EP ‘Behind the Green Door’ on Hyperdub, her sound embodies a future take on Michigan’s long-lasting legacy: Techno, Soul and the outer rings of the electronic universe through a bleak yet optimistic digital landscape.

An adept improviser and soundsmith, her live sets are heavy, looming and aggressive; techno and house influences commuting into drifting, disorienting sound-spheres. In short: like nothing else you’ve ever seen.
