With Summer fast approaching and the season to doof, club and party into the long warm nights upon us, here at the Weekend Chug, we’ve been thinking long and hard about nurturing creative artistic growth. A couple of questions have come to mind.
How can we promote for the incredible electronic artists in Melbourne who are keen and eager for an opportunity to showcase their original material?
How can we further support the scene here in Melbourne?
We know there’s amazing DJ talent out there, The Weekend Chug has time and time again witnessed it this year, showcasing amazing local DJs, and I’m both humbled and grateful for everyone who’s come in on a Saturday to spin tunes, but now it’s time to take it to the next level !!
So, starting December 2nd, The Weekend Chug invites you, the original artists, the bedroom producers, the 3am creatives – to reach out to us so we can get you on the show. You’ll have anywhere from 30 minutes to 60 minutes to compile a set of your favourite tracks that’s kept you slogging away and out of trouble. There is no rule that says that you must’ve performed live before, in fact, the more pure, the better, we say!
Here at the Weekend Chug, with the amazing support of the Kiss FM team and community radio members, we’re thinking, CD giveaways of your materials, whether it’s a two track EP, or a full scale journey into your twisted mind of electronic music.
We want to create an interactive and safe space for original artists to perform and show the world what you’ve got to offer.
Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org with your details – a bit about yourself, your background, your music and where to listen to your steez, and we’ll get back to you with a date to come on the radio !!
Coming up first to pioneer this concept, we will be welcoming the talented, Loui Battour, Saturday, December 2nd !!
And don’t forget to tune in to The Weekend Chug, Saturdays, from 12pm – this week we have the lovely, Sean Grimes performing the guest mix.
