Wednesday, October 8, 2003
Here's hoping that you have all had a restful week, stocked up on the carbs and rehydrated, because tomorrow night is it. Friday October 10, TranZfusion - Australia's original dance music website will be celebrating its 8th birthday and the launch of our fourth site transformation - the most amazing one yet.

With an intoxicating blend of house, trance, electro, techno, breaks, progressive and old skool, TranZfusion has enlisted Melbourne's favourite partying DJs to ensure that you're night is a warm, fuzzy, smooth honeyed, gritty, toasted rockin' one.

On the decks in order of appearance we have:

Kandyman (official invitation only)
Jeffrey Rolland Willis (aka Kandyman and half of DJ Fodder) transported himself from hippie-haven Eugene, Oregon, to the far shores of Melbourne, Australia. Daring to challenge today's dance stylings, Kandyman will be spinning the freshest house and chillout to come from the underground.

Hamish (LIVE) (official invitation only)
Hamish are Hamish Cowan (ex Cordrazine) and Bryan St James (aka The Spiritualist), together they produce and perform richly emotive, propulsive and deep electronic music. A live experience like no other.

Dean Millson
Founder of Melbourne's most loyally attended monthly outing 'Private Function', Dean is a strong believer in playing for the dance floor, and after a recent jaunt in New York we can expect a thunderous combination of progressive house and breaks.

Originating from South Africa, Feelix introduced many of us to Benny Benassi's 'Satisfaction'. A lover of all things breaks, 'nice juicy breaks' that is, Feelix will be slamming it down for us in true style.

Phunk De Sonique (LIVE)
Their rare, emotion charged and innovative sets have won them many fans, and you can be assured that when Christian, Chris and George hit the stage that your going to be treated to an ass shakingly awesome time.

RA(AUM Records)
RA(formally known as The Natural One) plays no-compromise pure techno and electro. Having recently returned from his third international tour, RA is looking forward to rocking Melbourne with another of his highly energised, raw and powerful sets.

Founder of Melbourne's most loved old skool reunion- Ret:)respect and one part of the Konsept Kollective, d-JCB has never lost sight of the true partying ethos. Extending his passion beyond the 303 and 808, d-JCB will be serving up some cheeky electro and Detroit influenced gear.

Peter Daris has been on the techno circuit for over nine years. Currently running local label 'Melbourne Techno Massive', PDT's unrelenting style of all things dark, minimal and driving, will guarantee you a heart racing experience.

Aaron Roach (Hypnose)
Melbourne based DJ/Producer Aaron Roach has had an ear for electronica since the very early days. Playing the closing set to end all sets, Aaron will be taking us on remarkable journey through progressive, techno, electro, hip hop and trance.

Fractured in the side room
Fractured is Melbourne's leading weekly breaks nights dedicated to bringing Melbourne a diverse mix of syncopated beats. For a fresh take on broken beats, you need look no further than Fractured.
