Saturday 16th May : #Picnic #OneNightStand w/#LateNiteTuffGuy / #DJHMC

  • Spice Cellar Ersknvl 35 Erskineville Rd Erskineville, NSW, 2043 Australia


As Picnic’s beloved One Night Stand approaches its 4th anniversary in May, it’s time to invite back a true master of the all-night set format: two time ONS guest and all-around super-legend LATE NITE TUFF GUY / DJ HMC! We’ll be bringing our Adelaide hero down into The Spice Cellar ERSKNVL aka The Imperial Hotel, where we’ve witnessed many an epic 8-hour DJ session, to hear him tear the place apart with the thumping disco, house and techno jams!

For those that need a refresher course in Carmelo Bianchetti, he’s absolute Australian dance royalty, leading a monumental techno and house movement as DJ HMC since the start of the ‘90s which led to his native Adelaide to be dubbed ‘Australia’s Detroit’. The influence of House Master Cam’s productions and extended DJ sets throughout that period is pretty hard to overstate. Fast forward to the early 2010s and Mr. Bianchetti’s domination has taken on a new flavour: his devastatingly funky disco edits he’s been pumping out like crazy as Late Nite Tuff Guy. Seemingly riding an endless wave of inspiration, he’s had more than a dozen of his own 12-inch releases with a bunch more tracks scattered across various labels and over 100 edits uploaded onto his overflowing SoundCloud - and it’s ALL KILLER! With seemingly millions more reworks in his personal collection, Cam brings this endless pool of heat to the club where you can hear him stitching together the most epic exclusive grooves in a way that only someone with his amount of experience and talent can. 

Anyone who’s attended one of the last two LNTG One Night Stands knows how special a party can be when Cam’s in command. So it’s with great pleasure that we invite him back for round three, before he jets off for another extended overseas tour! 

All the usual business: Late Nite Tuff Guy starts when doors open at 10pm and finishes at dawn, presales from Resident Advisor, good times forever.
