World in a Warehouse

Grace Barbé, Mambo Chic, Joni in the Moon, Charlie Bucket

RTRFM and PS Art Space (PSAS) join forces to present World In A Warehouse, a wildly diverse night of vibrant world, folk pop and progressive groove music in a transformed warehouse in Fremantle’s West End.

Six of WA’s most impressive rhythm makers and party starters will come together to celebrate with Perth’s most-loved independent radio station and Fremantle’s most inventive project and artist space.

Exotic world music star Grace Barbé will play a set of lively soul-stirring rhythms that celebrate the diverse cultural influences of her English, Kreol and French heritage.

Local folktronic outfit Joni in the Moon will bring a selection of trip-hop beats with world sample electronica amongst a squall of enchanting folk instrumentals. They will be joined by visual artist Steven Aaron Hughes (of Usurper of Modern Medicine) with live VJing (projected visuals) during the set. Fremantle six-piece Mambo Chic are famous for their spirited and infectious reggae-soul beats that will leave you with only one option – to hit the dance floor!

RTRFM El Ritmo DJs Jade Nobbs and Claude Mono will be coming together and digging deep into their crates for a joint set of oddball and otherworldly jazz, tiki-bar swing and psychedelic beats. Nik K and Jane Hebiton of RTRFM’s long-running world music program Global Rhythm Pot will be pairing up to share their favourite tunes and sounds for a truly surreal trip around the world.

And to cap it all off, Perth’s premier party aficionado DJ Charlie Bucket will be blending old style soul, funk and disco with hip hop, latin, afrobeat and world music.

The party is getting started from sundown with delicious South East Asian eats from Bite Me Fresh and an array of Venezuelan food from Arepa, plus striking visual art from Berlin based artist Zora Kreuzer’s two new site specific wall installations. Zora is the current Artsource-iaab 2014 Basel Residency exchange artist.
