Modular presents ‘What We Do Is Secret’ featuring Klaxons (DJ), Movement, Softwar, wordlife, Slow Blow, Club Mod DJs and Otologic. Plus FBi Radio hosts The Gallery Bar with Kilter, Moonbase Commander, Meare & DJs Kato, Mike Who, Kali (Picnic) and Max Gosford.
Alongside label mates Softwar, wordlife Club Mod DJs and Movement - the newest member of the Modular Recordings family; What We Do Is Secret will raise much needed funds for FBi radio, and deliver the Klaxons' only Aussie performance outside of their full-band Splendour in the Grass gig on Friday 26th July.
"FBi Radio and Modular are almost the same age. We've grown together and shared a love of a lot of the same music and goings-on around Sydney. It's vital to have a launching pad for new and fresh musical, social and cultural ideas. Sydney music (and city!) is so much stronger and more vibrant thanks to FBi." shares Stephen Pavlovic of Modular.
It's the first time in four years that the Klaxons have headed back Down Under, and the shows will offer a pre-curser to a brand-spanking-new single which will be delivered later in the year, before their third full player lands in early 2014.
The UK lads have spent the last year working with a number of producers as they laid down their much-anticipated third album, including The Chemical Brothers' Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons. The result? Well, there'll still definitely be guitars, but then think 'more electronic'.
Some lucky punters have already been treated to a sneak peek of new tracks 'Invisible Forces' and 'Rhythm of Love' at festivals in Hong Kong and France late last year, and the dance inspired tracks mark a welcome reconnection to their acid rave roots.
So get ready Australia, the Klaxons' beats are coming back to our shores and you don't want to miss this.
