IN THE LOFT
Chicago has house, Detroit techno, Berlin minimal and London a long history of rave culture. But Melbourne’s dance producers are chameleons, mashing up a multitude of Trans-Atlantic sounds with an irreverence peculiar to them. Tornado Wallace subscribes to this very individualism but, even within his hometown, he’s considered an anomaly.
The elusive and enigmatic DJ/producer is discreetly taking on the world with his hybrid of house, techno and disco with the hard-working producer responsible for stand out EPs on labels Delusions Of Grandeur, murmur Instruments Of Rapture under both his Tornado Wallace and Lewie Day guises, all supported by contemporaries such as Andrew Weatherall, Eric Duncan, Tim Sweeney, Matthew Dear and Mr Scruff.
I am more than a woman, I am a goddess. I am your mother, your lover, your champion. Saint or sinner, monarch or minion, I am your most fervent friend and your closest confidant. Protector of the polysexual, bastion of black sheep, defender of the downtrodden, I am yours. Follow my guiding light to the house that house music built. You will find that I am the bass throbbing between your legs on the dancefloor, the nipple hardening melody of your favorite disco song. Take a peek through my all seeing eye and see yourself whole. You will find that you begin where the dancefloor never ends. Open your mind to the enlightenment afforded by a clusterfuck of inclusivity. You will find the comfort of my ample bosom in the hearts of your brothers’ and sisters’ writhing souls. Share with each other the magic of music and drink together from my bottomless cup of mystery. I will dwell in the droplets of sweat that fly off of your pulsating bodies. I will live in the power of your collective touch and luxuriate in your most primal urges. Gather at my throne and then tear it down to build a discotheque in my likeness. I am Isis. You are Isis. We are Isis.
