SubstanceSounds Substance Sounds Melbourne From humble beginnings back in 2008 the Substance Krew have continually been at the forefront of the Melbourne electronic music scene. Smashing out all things electronic, the eclectic mix of music has seen all of the founding members sought after for major events around Melbourne and Australia. The Motley Crue that is the Substance massif cover all types of bass driven mojo lifting beats. Everything from Techno, Electro, Progressive, Breaks all the way through to Drum and Bass and Dubstep. The principle ethos these kids live on can be boiled down to one statement “Keep the dance floor rocking and the bevvies flowing.” Having originally started as a once a month free for all at the Softbelly bar in Melbourne, the rapid growth in crowd numbers has seen the krew continually upgrade to progressively larger venues. Some of Melbourne’s most sought after DJ’s have graced the wheels and laptops of steel at Substance including; Danny Bonici, Trent McDerrmott, Kalus, Ben Evans, Blinky, Travis Lucas, James Brooke and Julian Reynolds – to name but a select few. With this growth has seen interest from other party crews and Substance’s DJ notoriety has seen travels interstate for many of their resident DJ’s. Substance have a sister partnership with Gold Coast beat warriors “Involved” and have also held many a collaborative shindig. They have ventured into the realms of the Shepparton bush playing under the stars and rocked out the confines of Brown Alley with Mixed Messages and the Funtopia boys. Residents of Substance also regularily play at some of Melbourne’s most dynamic parties and clubs with Interview, Unstable Sounds, 3D and a bevy of major festivals and shows. Now focussing more on playing feature parties at progressive venues rather than staying in the one spot for too long, the Substance krew regularly try to keep the punters on their toes. For the Spring and Summer of 2010/11 the boys have set up beat headquarters on the balcony of the Terminus hotel. With a rapidly growing portfolio of new talent and an established list of hard hitting residents, Taran M, J-Slyde, Simon Murphy, Mouka and Rich OK continue to keep the Substance ball bouncing all over the stage and all over Australia.
