After a sold out 2015 of live music and dance over the water at Fishermans Wharf, Nautic Giants begin the new year hosting world #1 DJ Seth Troxler, one of the most recognisable figures in global dance music.
Seth Troxler is one of dance music’s most recognisable characters, the guy with the big hair and the even bigger personality who doesn’t take himself, or life, too seriously; a straight-up human being who plays by his own rules. I mean, the guy was born in the town of Kalamazoo, for crying out loud.
But those qualities, along with his passion and seemingly endless knowledge of house and techno, have established him as a figurehead for a new wave of underground electronic music that flies in the face of the disposable idiocy of mainstream EDM.
“I’ve always been kinda bat-shit crazy”, explains Seth. With his sporadic dreadlocks and well-twizzled ‘tache, he comes across part streetwise Lothario, part Napoleon Dynamite’s creepy older cousin. Descended from a family of cowboys and Baptist preachers, he’s part African-American, part Egyptian, part Cherokee Indian. While his heritage is all-American his global outlook transcends his small-city Mid Western origins.
Securing an act of Seth’s profile for their loyal Gold Coast audience, coupled with the increasing popularity of Nautic Giants speaks volumes for the City’s developing reputation as a destination for elite electronic artists.
The team behind Nautic Giants (which includes Crave Yard, Black Coffee Lyrics, About A Girl and elsewhere bar) describe the event as a curated entertainment experience. Troxler will bring the beats on Sunday 10 January, 2016 in what is a coup for the Gold Coast.
