Judging by the lineup for Let Them Eat Cake 2014, New Year’s Day might just end up being bigger than the night before it, with organisers managing to corral Bicep, Cyril Hahn, Digital, DJ Koze, Floating Points and James Holden, just to name a few, into Melbourne’s wondrous Werribee Mansion.
The 2013 debut of this unique, extravagant, and luxurious dance festival was such a success that organisers have made sure to do frocked-up revellers one better for the second outing. Top of the bill, London-based and Belfast-bred bloggers-come-DJs Matt McBriar and Andy Ferguson who go by the moniker Bicep. Their Feel My Bicep blog is the foremost old-school dance music almanac for crate diggers worldwide and the two are highly skilled producers and DJs in their own right.
Canadian Cyril Hahn has quickly built a reputation as a producer with an ability to “expose our very guilty pleasures with undeniable, stimulating creations.” His remix of the Destiny’s Child classic Say My Name was an underground hit, before exploding and being selected by Diplo as the final track for his BBC Radio 1 mix show, as well as receiving praise from Annie Mac. Cyril has gone on to remix Alpines, Solange, and Haim and will be bringing his live skills to Let Them Eat Cake for an assuredly unique set.
Other names on the bill for this year’s mega Let Them Eat Cake lineup include Stephen Carr a.k.a. Digital, one of the most critically lauded and respected names in the drum & bass game, his 18-year-long career has seen the release of some of the most seminal records in the genre.
What Elvis was to Sun, DJ Koze is to the iconic German techno label Kompakt. Over the past decade, Koze has released some of the most unique, avant-garde, awe-inspiring, yet unbelievably banging tracks this side of a 303.
Likewise UK producer and DJ James Holden has become something of a legend in his own right, kickstarting a revolution in indie dance music with his label Border Community, providing refuge to artists who share his vision of an intelligent, forward-thinking type of dance music. Live, his brooding combination of electro and minimal techno is something EDM geeks won’t want to miss out on.
