Party & Bullshit 7m

While you might be able to hear the crickets in post-lockout Kings Cross, Candy’s Apartment brought Bayswater Road back to its glory days with a huge reunion party last night.

The importance of Kings Cross in Australian dance and electronica can’t be understated: It provided a place for some of our biggest stars to cut their teeth and earn their stripes before tackling international audiences. Last night, some of those producers returned back to Candy’s for a one-off surprise reunion for the record books, with a line-up including Alison Wonderland, What So Not, Golden Features and Hayden James.

Appropriately, proceeds from the party went towards Keep Sydney Open, and there was a line stretching from the venue as early as 8:00pm. What So Not cracked out his old CD wallet and played everything from Mr Oizo, Justice, Boyz Noise and even older Emoh Instead tracks Рtaking us back to the turn of the decade with some rambunctious bangers in a set that stretched well over 2 hours.

There was plenty of sweat and spirit – and Sydneysiders showed once more that in the face of adversity, they can still throw one hell of a party. Keep Sydney Open:
