Saturday 29the August : Charades x Something Else Pres. #BORROWEDIDENTITY x #SLEEPD

  • Burdekin Hotel 2 Oxford Street Darlinghurst Australia (map)

A three level party that is going to blow up! 

We can finally announce our international guest BORROWED IDENTITY along side Melbourne's mighty Sleep D.

Borrowed Identity is a 23 year old dj and producer born and based in south germany Freiburg im Breisgau. 

Roots in romania but living in Germany Borrowed Identity’s name says a lot about his life. His musical upbringing was a melange of ethnic music from friends, weird stuff from local libraries and whatever else he could find in record stores and on the internet, thus explaining the fact he makes anything from classical to ambient, house to techno, experimental to electro, hiphop to pop music. 

Inspired by DJs and producers from Larry Levan to Dj Harvey, Moodymann to Larry Heard, Robert Hood to Basic Channel, this man has so far released already on labels like Mistress Recordings, Quintessentials, Home Taping and the Berghain imprint Ostgut Ton. Said music is deep and cultured, awash with real musicality and true sampled soul and is perfectly at home in the record bags of those who have supported it so far including Mike Hucakby and Move D, Laurent Garnier, Delano Smith, Detroit Swindle and many more tastemakers. 

SLEEP D (Butter Sessions) - Melbourne
Lurking in Melbourne’s remote south east, Sleep D is Corey Kikos and Maryos Syawish, an artistic duo that have spent the mass of their youth exploring sonic soundscapes and ways to share them with other people. Whether through their label Butter Sessions Records or their parties in Melbourne’s abandoned and intimate spaces, they sweat it out in order to push the boundaries and keep the experience fresh every time.

Sleep D are diverse and interesting artists with their on point DJ sets now complimented by an incredible live set that features a new age approach to working vintage synths and analogue gear. Their live performances at Melbourne Music Week were met with rave reviews while their inclusion in the Boiler Room Melbourne line up further cemented Sleep D as an exciting act to watch in Australia’s growing house and techno landscape.
