The last time we’d been to a Coldharbour Recordings Night was in Miami, during Miami Music Week last year and what an eventful night that had turned out to be! This time I was determined not to miss Grube & Hovsepian – an act I knew very little about, other than that they are from Miami and are signed to Markus Schulz’s Cordharbour Recordings label.

They started at midnight, with a nice progressive groove that set the tone for the night very nicely. Dropping the Hardwell remix of Mark Knight & Funkagenda – Man With The Red Face and Capital Cities – Safe And Sound (Markus Schulz vs. Grube & Hovsepian Remix) and a number of tunes I was less familiar with, they were definitely giving the night a strong Coldharbour flavour.

The night’s headline act, KhoMha, was up next. His previous visit to Sydney had seen him tear apart a packed Civic Underground in one of 2013’s memorable nights, so I was keen to see if he could deliver another set to match that occasion. Perhaps because Home, despite its now very impressive sound system, can’t match the intimacy of the Civic Underground, I didn’t think the set quite lived up to last May’s Zodiac night. But despite that, it was a very enjoyable set, full of KhoMha’s typical energy. With tunes like KhoMha vs. iiO – Dejavu Rapture (KhoMha Mashup), KhoMha – Mind Gamer, Armin van Buuren – Ping Pong, Fat Boy Slim – Praise You (New World Punx Remix), KhoMha vs. Fat Boy Slim – Dusk Riddles Rave Repeat (KhoMha mashup) and KhoMha vs. Tiësto – Traffic Asylum (KhoMha mashup), KhoMha had the Voodoo crowd eating out of his hands.

Mr. Pit
took over to close the night with a really enjoyable set, including great tunes like Markus Schulz & Andy Moor – Daydream and Omnia – Infina. Another great night from Voodoo and from Coldharbour – though nowhere near as eventful as the night in Miami (but that’s another story and what goes on tour, stays on tour!).

 

Thanks, as always, to Luke Davids Photography for the great photos.
