UBER SYSTEM LIBERATED! @ Abercrombie in Sydney

UBER SYSTEM LIBERATED! will be one chokers party in Uber Lingua's history... If you've missed the past few, it's def worth considering. We should also mention that due to popular demand, we'll be doing another GYPSY

Since December 07 Uber Lingua has been hosting Saturday night parties at the Abercrombie... All except the last episode, the BALKAN & GYPSY BASH, have been celebrations of diversity called UBER SYSTEM parties... each growing in popularity and turnout... It's now time for another...

In house developed video material by Melbourne based VJ, Siadatz will also be screened.

$10 entry tickets on the door


After the gynormous SYDNEY GYPSY & BALKAN BASH of April 19, the Uber Lingua Abercrombie continue to push cutting edge culture and linguistic diversity into Sydney's party scene... The events are now pretty much monthly thangs and the forthcoming edition UBER SYSTEM LIBERATED! will not let the standards slip... As the winter months approach the motivation to have more stuff inside is evident. Together with the Figure 8 crew who help out with sound, we launched our new 'Indoor stage' at the last party and this also allowed us to have LIVE stuff after midnight (the Beer garden has sound restrictions)... a 3-member version of the Gypsy Dub Sound System used it to great affect...

At UBER SYSTEM LIBERATED! Brisbane's Potato Master returns to be part of an Sound System performance with selector bP and Sri Lankan MC Pataphysics. This trio performed together at the Sydney Festival 'Festival First night' space by Uber Lingua in Angel Place... They are joined by Sydney based turntablist Ability, so it's a tri-state configuration... Gong Baby are Indonesian percussion and instrumentalists Deva Permana & Efen Jaenudin working with producer and DJ Jonah. The combination is a precision mix of electronics and urban beats fusing with ancient eastern aesthetics... frankly speaking it's quite electric! Gondwana are heralded Didgeridoo player Charlie McMahon (previously working under the moniker Gondwanaland), Mashy P and a keyboard player named Paul. Charlie has recorded on albums by Midnight Oil, Janes Addiction, Hisashi Shirahama, Ed Kuepper & John Williamson to name a few... This project takes his exploration of Didjeri-bone and FX pedals further... atone are ex-Mancunian Andrew Fitzgerald and Steve Stanislavsky, they produce a never ending stockpile of deep electronic dub and the act has become a mainstay of the Sydney electronic music scene since first appearing with their 5 star reviewed atonement album in 1996.

DJs for the night include Turkish SBS broadcaster Evrim, who received a popular response to her set at the SG&BB, so she had to be asked back for another slot. Indian drum and bass DJ Ritual arrives on the Uber Lingua lineup with a strong urge to connect his genetic heritage to his DnB passion. Ritual is no stranger to the Abercrombie after playing many a DnBBQ. Stu Buchanan and the Ollo DJs fulfill a newly formed aspect of the Abercrombie parties. As there's sound restrictions after midnight we've started featuring (dare we say) 'chilled out' listening sets in the beer garden after midnight. Almost all of the Argentinean DJs (and an MC) involved in Uber Lingua are on this bill as part of some random sequence of programming coincidences... Man about town, DubChaman and DJ Spex vs. MC Hernan will inject a higher than normal hot Latin element to this party... The upstairs gallery space will be open from 11pm as always for more adventures...

UBER SYSTEM LIBERATED! will be one chokers party in Uber Lingua's history... If you've missed the past few, it's def worth considering. We should also mention that due to popular demand, we'll be doing another GYPSY & BALKAN BASH in the next couple of months so keep yer eyes peeled and yer fur hats within reach...
