Jungle Love Festival 2017

 

2017 marks the the first time A Love Supreme had the pleasure of collaborating with Jungle Love Festival. A beautiful habitat and location paired with open fun loving festival goers made for a vibe filled weekend. A Love Supreme were at the helm, curating the ‘Jungle Boogie’  Stage and the ‘Kunst Klub’ for Saturday’s attendees. From exotic latin and middle eastern jams to afro, disco and house flavours, the riverbank of people came together in a beautiful way at the Jungle Boogie Stage. The crowd was excitable, dancing and swimming into the evening and the ALS fam enjoyed every minute. Later, the Kunst Klub was erupting! Things got deeper, and heavier but the room could not stop dancing until the sun was well and truly in the air on Sunday morning. A huge thank you to everyone who came and experienced Jungle Love with us this year. Hope to do it all again next year.

Penelope Two Five

Nice to see our buddies Penelope Two Five get a little light from Purple Sneakers on their debut EP

"Lost Tapes for Calvin is the debut EP from Brisbane club music duo, PENELOPE TWO-FIVE and is, endearingly, an amalgamation of thoughtfully written lyrics and innovative house/ techno beats. It embraces and introduces sounds that are finding increasing popularity in the Australian clubbing scene and, in doing this, brings a new take on the culture. #DadAcid is how the two describe their music on Soundcloud but the depth of genre does not just end there. Like all good emerging artists Penelope Two-Five offers something more and something not quite definable; the creation of new genres, conflicting ones and hybrids unheard of."

Fatima & Alexander Nut Recap

What a night! Thanks to everyone of you that came and shared the experience that was Fatima and Alexander Nut! A small showing to start the evening but the room filled out as Tiana Khasi, the hometown soulstress, took to the stage with surprise backing from Sampology and live percussion. Captivated, the whole room was sent swaying and bobbing as they hung onto every word and every note. The crowd got moving as Sampology played a short intermission before Fatima and Alexander Nut took the stage. All eyes on Fatima as they stepped out.

Charismatic and charming she warmed the crowd and got the whole room bouncing as she missed not one beat performing new heat and old gems from her back catalogue. After a short encore Fatima stepped down and Alexander Nut took the reigns, commanding the dance floor with up tempo edits, slow groovers and party fire that had everyone off the wall and moving! Local clown, whoever he is, Sean Bate kept the party going as Alexander wrapped up his set. Sean performed what we can only assume were songs he had definitely played many times before in almost the exact same structure. Some people liked it, most were less than impressed. A huge thank you to Tiana Khasi, Sampology, and the main event, Fatima and Alexander Nut for making the night one we won’t forget!
