Step into a night of visions and iconoclasts. Dark beats and strange meets; follow the call of the disco ball to an evening of deviance and desire. Brisbane Powerhouse transforms into a haunting hall of tech house beats as part of a new up-late party.

Featuring DJ sets from local and international headliners, including Soul of Detroit, John “Jammin” Collins of Underground Resistance, Sophie Forrest and local DJ Enn.

Intertwine with installations, guest appearances, drag acts and performances from some of the world’s most wicked movers and shakers. So turn a look, or come as you are to this excursion into a world of intoxicating splendour and expression. Dance, sweat, succumb and MELTDOWN with us. In the club, we are one.

John ‘Jammin’ Collins of Underground Resistance has been a force in Detroit’s electronic music scene for over three decades. A world-renowned DJ and superlative record producer Collins is one of the Detroit electronic music community’s most familiar faces, and not simply because of his very public role as tour guide at Submerge’s Exhibit 3000, the world’s only techno museum.

For nearly four decades he’s been a constant presence on the decks at Motor City clubs, most famously during his days as resident DJ at the legendary Detroit nightspot Cheeks, as well as gigs at the Warehouse, the Parabox, and Times Square. He’s also a longtime radio mix-show veteran dating back to the early 1990s on WJLB FM 98 (where he picked up his ‘Jammin’ nickname from on-air personality ‘Captain’ Kris McClendon) and later WDRQ FM 93.1 to his show Live From Detroit: John Collins Presents The Soul of Detroit, which streamed online at Red Bull Radio.
