Hot Dub Time Machine

"A show that has turned Sydney DJ Tom Loud into an international music phenomenon.” - The Australian Since first launching his time-travelling, ‘dance-through-the-decades’ audio-visual party concept in 2011, Sydney’s Tom Loud (Lowndes) has grown Hot Dub Time Machine 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. Hot Dub is a main stage regular at festivals all over the world, including Australia's 'Splendour in the Grass,' 'Falls Festival,' and 'Groovin the Moo,' the UK's 'Reading and Leeds,' 'Latitude,' and 'T in the Park' (Rip), Europe's legendary 'Tomorrowland,' Benicassim, and EDC Berlin, Asia's 'It's The Ship' and even, back in 2014, 'Coachella,' in the USA. His headline tours move staggering amounts of tickets, with over 12,500 people enjoying two wild solo shows in 2017's Edinburgh Fringe Festival, two massive shows at London's legendary 'Brixton Academy,' and huge sold-out tours across his Australian home. So huge that he started his own festival 'Wine Machine' to take the shows outdoors, into vineyards with a lineup of amazing local artists. Wine Machine is now in its fourth season and moves around 55,000 tickets each year. Recently Hot Dub has become a regular performer at massive sporting events, including the Australian Open Tennis, Formula One, Hong Kong Sevens, Cricket and more, bringing together diverse crowds the power of awesome music and good times. The biggest crowds of Hot Dub's career are 80,000 at Edinburgh's NYE 'Hogmanay,' 40,000 in Sydney's Domain supporting Chaka Khan and 30,000 at the Falls Festival Byron main stage. 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! Instagram: @hotdubtimemachine | Twitter: @HotDubTM Facebook: facebook.com/hotdubtimemachine | Website: www.hotdubtimemachine.com

Hi guys! Normally I'd be asking for requests for Saturdays #hotdubathome, but I've decided this Saturday is 'Tom's Choice.' 😇 So I'm going to play my favourite Hot Dub songs, ones that mean something to me, or are just really fun to DJ. It's going to be great! 😛 (and YES, I know it's always 'Tom's Choice' and I just choose the requests that I like anyway, but this way has less spreadsheets 🤣)

It got me thinking: what are your favourite songs EVER? I don't mean right now, I mean EVER. Songs that have stuck by you, songs that you can always turn to, songs that are a part of your life. I've started making a Spotify playlist of mine in ranked order (link attached), and would love to read yours. Post a quick top 3 below 🙂

Mine are mostly pretty mellow, (these aren't the songs I'll be playing on Saturday!), but they've lasted the test of time and I keep coming back to them. I'll write a little about the top 5 here:

1. Hallelujah - Jeff Buckley: This has been my number one song for over 20 years. His only album 'Grace' came out when I was a teenager and I loved every song on it, but Hallelujah stands out as a timeless gem of song writing (by Leonard Cohen) and performance (by Jeff). Amazing singer. Bad swimmer... 😢

2. Mirrorball - Elbow: this isn't a super well known song, but I really think it is perfect. For me it's a song about love, change, travel, babies, and life. "You make the moon our mirror ball / The street's an empty stage / The city's sirens, violins / Everything has changed." It sounds like it's always searching until it finally resolves and settles in the chorus. I never get tired of it.

3. I Am The Black Gold of The Sun - Nuyorican Soul: I listen to this song at least a few times a week. Whenever I need something to lighten the mood, bring some light in, this song does it. It's so totally unique and great. Jazz, soul, gospel, electronica, hiphop, it's got a bit of it all. If it disappeared I would be bereft.

4. Insomnia - Faithless: Finally a Hot Dub song! I'll never forget hearing this for the first time in it's whole 9 minute long majesty. I used to be a heavy metal nerd, but I fell in love with dance music with this song. And I still love it after playing it hundreds of times at gigs and thousands of times at home. 'Tearin' off tights with my teeth.' That's some HOT alliteration.

5. Destiny - Zero 7: Super early Sia here from 2001 and she's incredible on it. But it's the really gorgeous Zero 7 arrangement that makes it. It's like a warm bath. I listen to it on planes a lot. (or I used to 😞)

Thanks for reading, what are your faves ever? See you Saturday 6-8pm

I felt like bringing some proper 🔥Rock🔥to the Decades Podcast, so this week it’s 90s ROCK! Download it on any podcast app (except Spotify) link in comments below. It’s starts pretty heavy with Nirvana, Metallica, and Rage, before mellowing slightly into some angsty ballad rock by Radiohead, Cranberries and more. We then follow the 🔥Rock🔥 as it splinters towards the end of the decade into pop-punk, ska, funky stuff. I fully admit most of the acts here are American and I’m sure I missed your fave, but all the Aussie rock I like is already in the Aussie mix and these are the songs I still really love. Hope you guys dig it! See you Saturday for #hotdubathome
