Since first launching his time-travelling, ‘dance-through-the-decades’ audio-visual party concept in 2011, Sydney’s Tom Loud has grown his project into an absolute monster. This Australian DJ – who showcases songs from every decade and genre of music, weaving it into one expansive, electrifying, music history lesson – has been welcomed by international audiences with open arms; with a phenomenal 200,000 tickets already sold worldwide.
2017 was Hot Dub Time Machine’s biggest year yet – one that began with the headline spot on the revered national Falls Festival tour, and ended with Hot Dub ringing in 2018 with over 10,000 people in Sydney at a New Year’s Eve festival of his very own creation – NYE in the Park. In between, Hot Dub entertained thousands at home and abroad – highlights included a USA Tour, performing two of the largest shows to ever take place in Edinburgh Fringe Festival, raising the roof at London’s Brixton Academy, island party Your Paradise, headlining Australia’s Melbourne Cup, and, of course, the major success of inaugural Wine Machine.
A boutique, one-day, adult-contemporary event, Wine Machine was founded by Hot Dub and Falcona, and saw a touring line up of Australia’s leading bands and DJs perform on custom-built stages amongst the grapevines in the most picturesque wine regions in Australia. Wine Machine was met by a rapturous response from Australian fans – the entire tour sold-out, with media calling it ‘the best festival debut in years’. The event makes a double-sized return this March, taking on six Australian cities – with international expansion in the works.
Hot Dub Time Machine consistently delivers stellar live performances that are near impossible not to enjoy. He pinpoints the happiest moments of your partying days past, and re-creates those moments to perfection for you all over again; intertwining them with the right here and the right now – in the most exhilarating way possible.
It’s the Best. Party. Ever!
Hot Dub, aka Tom Loud (Lowndes) from Sydney, Australia, has been djing since 2002. He created and first performed Hot Dub Time Machine in 2011 and has built it into an epic festival act and an integral part of the musical landscape. Tom DJs exclusively with real vinyl and uses software to control visuals and audio from actual turntables. The show is performed totally live, with songs played in their original form and presented with epic custom videos, which are layered and manipulated in real time. No show is exactly the same, each experience is unique and the only way to fully understand it is to get up the front and dance.
Tom uses: Serato DJ, Mix Emergency, Pioneer DJM S9 mixers, Pioneer PLX-1000 turntables, Apple Macbook Pros and buys all his DJ equipment from www.storedj.com.au
