EMERGENCE presents  DUO ALIAS [live] | ALBUM RELEASE PARTY |
 
Hi everyone. For our next installment of Emergence,
We are very proud to present to you a live album release night by local boyz Duo Alias.
Duo Alias have always been busy producing quality techno since their formation and are now one of the most exciting live acts in New Zealand. Their hard work has paid off and their recognition is well overdue. Their album Second Sight will be released on the respected Irish label Variance, who have an array of Techno heavy weights already signed with the likes of Ansome arguably the most excting live act in Europe currently and Keepsakes the Auckland man that has just come off an extensive European tour last year and has headlined previous Emergence shows .

Second sight explodes onto the record label, Variance, with the type of attitude that leaves an imprint. Its unforgiving kick drums and distorted rythems makes you hungry to hear this quality release in the intense dark setting that is Emergence. As the Album is set for release in late April, we are delighted to have Duo Alias perfoming some tracks from the album exclusively, live, along with some new material and some of their favourites. As always we will be beefing up the PA, lighting and projecting the scapes of the capital for one of the most talented prospects, homegrown in Wellington, coming to you live from Vallhalla. This will be an experience not to be missed. 

On support We have Verdi, Passed Curfew and Paul Dockery

B.Lo
First introduced to techno via Detroit’s second wave, B.Lo has a longstanding love for quality machine music. The man behind Strange Behaviour, he’s played support for the likes of Bicep, Iron Curtis, Urulu and more, and in his sets seeks out a balance of slamming rhythms and mind altering synth lines. A passionate member of the Wellington music scene for more years than he cares to remember, catch B.Lo DJing and you can always rely on hearing the sort of forward thinking electronic music that shakes the hips and soothes the mind. This will be his first appearance at Emergence, something he’s incredibly excited about.

Dedicated to constantly improving the house scene, Heylady has worked with some of the biggest and the best over the past 20 years, as well as some of the smallest and coolest. So many parties, so little tequila left at the end of them..

Holding a residency at The 7 Deadly Gins at Burning Man, rocking LA and playing regularly across New Zealand, Heylady has cemented herself as one of the forces to watch. From big festival sets to small, intimate club spaces, her diversity and range always ensures a stomping dancefloor.

Born with a soul infused with a love of all things tech, ponies, sneakers and dressups, Heylady believes fun and frivolity is paramount, which is why her sets never conform to any one silly sub-genre. It's all four-four, isn't it?

Helix
Helix discovered the joys of DJing techno in the early 90s. He started producing his own music in 2003 and has tracks released by UK label BDO Dancefloor, and independently.

Now best known for playing bass-driven house, Helix has also played well-received techno, progressive, psy, trance, drum 'n bass and dubstep sets. An expert on reading the crowd, Helix is one of few DJs who can truly craft a journey, drawing on years of experience and a love of many different genres.

DJ Bio's
DJ Coda Biography
Coda is the DJ guise of British born Kiwi, Leon Baldock. Coming from a very musical & theatrical production oriented family, Coda's first exposure to disc jockeying was running school discos. This started a healthy record buying habit and led to writing electronic dance music in high school on the art computer.

Coda was attracted to the emerging sounds of the UK & USA underground dance scenes. With exposure to some of Wellington's early dance parties and clubs Coda’s interest in DJing continued to grow. In late 1992 Coda met DJ Tank Girl who was running the fore-founding "techno gangster studio rave" show on Radio Active. As well as guesting on the show, Coda helped setup the first Eden party with Tank Girl and played at Eden 2.
As well as playing gigs around New Zealand (Auck, Chch, QT, Napier), he has also maintained a ground roots presence in the local scene with sets at numerous events and private parties like the White Room & Black Room. Coda has a reputation delivering unique sets, tailored to the crowd, environment and situation, crafting a blend of the most up-front tracks of today with crowd-pleasing classics.
