Pendulum DJ SET

Jul 27 - 2017

Discovery Darwin & Falcona Presents




Pendulum formed in their home-town of Perth (Western Australia) in 2002, when producers Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen teamed up with acclaimed local DJ Paul ‘Elhornet’ Harding. While their individual formative roots ranged from producing drum & bass, breakbeat and hardcore, to playing in metal and punk bands, their comparable talents proved an unstoppable force when they managed to single-handedly conquer the world of drum & bass in their first 12 months together.

“We want our music to be an escape. While technology continues to constantly advance production techniques and (arguably) sound quality, something has been lost in the process – that original sense of self-escape, the idea of leaving yourself open to experience something you don’t necessarily find in every-day life. That was the energy we picked up on and liked about electronic music when we first got into it. It felt like the same energy found with bands like Led Zeppelin and even The Beatles, and still occasionally today with bands like Tool, The Mars Volta, Queens Of The Stone Age and others.

To us, it made perfect sense to combine the best of both worlds, but it had to be done in a way that didn’t make it sound obvious. In the last 10 years you’ve had all these bands that tried to cross the bridge by recruiting a turntablist / using a synthesizer on their new single, or electronic artists who just threw an obvious guitar sample into a tune…but eventually it just came across as a gimmick or a bit cheesy. We thought we’d try and do it properly, because to us it still hasn’t been done right and theres a lot of room for exploration.

If you turn on the radio today you’ll hear 20 tracks in a row describing someone’s every-day life, or songs with a one-line catchphrase chorus about shaking your ass in the club – the production is usually great but when you look deeper, there’s nothing behind it…it doesn’t offer you anything past its face value. We want to hear something different and exciting, but the material we want to hear isn’t getting made. Thats why we spend nearly every waking moment trying to create music that takes you out of this universe – for ourselves and anyone else who wants to listen.”

HORRORSHOW – Bardo State Tour

Jul 21 - 2017


Horrorshow jump on a plane and head to Darwin for their biggest show to date.

“This is my time, I’m hitting my stride” – My Time (track one off Bardo State)

Following the triumphant release of 4th studio album ‘Bardo State’, Horrorshow embark on their biggest quest yet, playing theatres and a swag of some of Australia’s best venues in a huge national tour in June/July. It’ll be their first chance to reveal a whole new set and stage show.

Horrorshow have spent almost a decade selling out tours and racking up award nominations – but it’s the fan-driven nature of their success that defines their widespread appeal – there is a deep affection and loyalty that is particularly unique. ‘Bardo State’ is their third album to chart in the ARIA top 5 in the last 4 years (including One Day’s Mainline).

Following their newly announced appearance at landmark US hip hop festival SoundSet, Horrorshow will be taking in capital cities and regional centres around Australia, bringing NZ’s world renowned star DAVID DALLAS and the buzzing young TURQUOISE PRINCE along for the ride. With last years ‘If You Know What I Mean Tour’ selling out across the board well in advance, this will be a hot ticket.

The Monty Cotton Band LIVE @ The Lost Arc

May 26 - 2017

A few years ago Monty decided it was time for a sea change. Leaving a corporate accountant job in Sydney, Monty set sail to pursue the life of a musician in Western Australia. A few years later Monty now travels the globe performing his Johnny Cash Show “A Boy Named Cash” and writes songs about the highs and lows of his adventures.

Monty woke up one day in 2012 and realised he could imitate Johnny Cash. “A Boy Named Cash” was born – a greatest hits tribute to the legend Johnny Cash. From this point on Monty has performed as Johnny Cash all around Australia and the UK – pubs, clubs, shopping centres, arts festivals, mine sites, corporate functions, breakfast radio, morning television, and ‘The Voice’ Australia. See it to believe it!

“You hit that so perfectly” – Larry Emdur, Seven Network’s Morning Show commenting on Monty’s Johnny Cash live showcase appearance.
“With closed eyes it could have been the real Cash standing on stage, Cotton’s voice being absolutely spot on” – Edinburgh Spotlight
“A Boy Named Cash is a great crowd pleaser” – View from the Gods, London

Timmy Trumpet at Discovery

May 12 - 2017


After a hugely successful world tour, he’s back!

Bigger and better than ever… Make some noise as Discovery Darwin and Soapbox proudly presents Australia’s #1 DJ!

TIMMY TRUMPET at Discovery!

Multi-Platinum selling artist Timmy Trumpet is currently ranked Australia’s #1 DJ (ITM Awards 2015-16), averaging 10 flights a week, and juggling over 200 shows per year including major clubs and festivals around the world. His latest smash “Freaks” featuring Savage has dominated charts and radio stations in 30+ countries with over 50 million views on YouTube, making it Ministry of Sound’s highest ever selling single.

No stranger to the limelight, Timmy Trumpet won ‘Young Musician of the Year’ at age 13 before being granted a full scholarship to the Conservatorium of Music, where Sydney Symphony Orchestra’s Anthony Heinrich tutored him. Within two years he secured a position as the leading solo trumpet player in the Australian All-Star Stage Band, taking part in an extensive European tour covering some of the world’s biggest Jazz Festivals. After developing perfect pitch at a young age, Timmy’s progression into dance music has been propelled by his ability to effortlessly mix in-key whilst mastering the art of improvisation allowing a seamless transition from jazz to dance music.

“After discovering Jazz I began to jam over everything and anything, mainly stuff on the radio. It wasn’t long until I discovered house music, met a DJ, and then played my first gig. I drove home that night knowing this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.”
The Live DJ/Trumpet cross-over experiment proved a great success, providing the launching pad for an acclaimed career in dance music production. Timmy now boasts a catalogue of hits including ‘The Buzz’ (Beatport #1) ‘Hipsta’ (ARIA Club #1) ‘Freaks’ (6 x Platinum) as well as a string of successes with labels like Dutch powerhouse Spinnin’ Records, Hussle and Universal Music.

Timmy is following up the success of his release ‘Toca’ featuring Carnage and KSHMR, with an assortment of high profile collaborations and original tracks. In between studio sessions, Timmy is touring the world, having booked European, Asian, American and Australian tours for 2016. Timmy is set on bringing his captivating shows to crowds, clubs and festivals for years to come.

Fatman Scoop – The Sunrise Tour

Apr 13 - 2017


Illusive Presents and Discovery Darwin are excited to announce

FATMAN SCOOP (LIVE) – THE SUNRISE TOUR at Discovery Darwin, on Thursday 13th April, launching the Easter Long Weekend.

FATMAN SCOOP is one of the most recognized voices in hip hop! An artist, promoter and radio personality who is famed for his on-stage rough, raw loud voice.

FATMAN SCOOP sets off on his globe-spanning 2017 world tour this month in support of his brand new upcoming release “SUNRISE” with Jillionaire of Major Lazer fame and Fuse ODG, due for release on Feel Up Records.

FATMAN SCOOP cemented his reputation as a social media king during his 2016 tour, with videos of his impromptu freestyles on a Jet2 aeroplane to Ibiza and on a Northern Line underground carriage racking up millions of views from fans worldwide. He also took part in the world’s largest mannequin challenge on his previous world tour at a show in Australia.

We all remember his 1999 collaboration with The Crooklyn Clan, “BE FAITHFUL”, the urban anthem that dominated clubs internationally for years before it went #1 in the United Kingdom and Ireland in 2003 and Top 5 in Australia. A tune that is still a dance floor favourite to this day.

FATMAN SCOOP has also collaborated with numerous pop artists, such as Lil Jon, Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson, Whitney Houston, Pitbull and Skrillex among others.

PNAU Live at Discovery

Apr 06 - 2017


“Chameleon” is the first single from acclaimed electronic act PNAU in over four years. Constantly inspired by the emotional weight of our world, “Chameleon” is spiritually anchored in the medicinal plant culture of the Peruvian Amazon and laced with all the energy we expect of the Australian outfit comprised of Nick Littlemore, Peter Mayes and newest member Sam Littlemore.

Not shy of output over the last 12 months, Nick Littlemore has dropped new Empire Of The Sun material (also produced by Mayes), a White Shadows EP (Nick and Sam Littlemore’s project with The Vines’ Craig Nicholls) as well as a forthcoming ambient collaboration with Celia Pavey, aka Vera Blue, all of which provide a true picture of PNAU’s expanding interest, influence and creative energy.

Sam Littlemore (multi-ARIA Awardwinning super producer) joins the inseparable duo of Nick and Peter to bring a wealth of new material into fruition. Having been involved as producer for their 2007 self-titled album, Sam is an integral part of PNAU, genetics aside. The single “Chameleon” also welcomes the addition of Shakira Marshall – previously a dancer and back-up singer for Ms. Lauryn Hill – on vocals, bringing a new and electrifying layer to the band’s vision for 2017.

The band’s last LP offering, Good Morning To The Night with the legendary Elton John, went straight in at #1 in the U.K. charts and top 5 in Australia, while the track “Changes” from French producers Faul & Wad Ad that samples their 2007 hit “Baby”, hit #1 in several countries across Europe in 2013. To know PNAU is to know that their creative process cannot be bundled into just one song. “Chameleon” however, is the first step towards unravelling that journey.
