year after year for 7 years now BP still delivers quality production, amazing artists, lights decor, facilities and KV2 sound..
This year will be a bit smaller than usual, last year was hard with a big loss of funds,
so it was decided to have only interstate and local artists
and keep the door cost down, not as much money will be spent meaning a smaller door price (bringing doof back to it roots)

So the door donation will be $30

Neuron Compost; organic fertilization of the nervous system, is the creative audio output of 33 year old Reece Stockhausen. Interested in the capability of frequency to affect consciousness, the project is an exploration of the interface between technology and spirit, the pursuit of the transcendent through freeform artistic expression. The resultant sound is a rich abstraction of digitally abused semi-digested audio, intelligently structured, infused with an emotive, visceral presence. Utilizing aesthetics native to all sub-genres of contemporary psychedelia, yet conforming to none, the Neuron Compost style is difficult to define. Displaying a strong disregard for established codes and conventions, it is a solitary voice of dissent, maintaining an aurally challenging, fierce and confronting individuality, whilst retaining a strong dancefloor accessibility and subtle subversive humor. The Neuron Compost liveset is a real-time interactive experiment in group shamanic trance-dance ecstasis. The intention is to promote cutting-egde electronica whilst maintaining a coherent and emotionally engaging journey. Reece is also responsible for the formation and artistic direction of Gi’iwa Productions, internationally recognized specialists in the release of forward thinking, truly progressive, psych0funkadelic trancefloor music.

From the lush green rainforest of Far Forth Queensland. The BushMech project, written and produced by Roy Veivers , focused on taking an each individual for a journey through sound. Consisting of high flowing, tropical psychedelics mixed with some smooth progressive forces, which were delicately gathered from the deep depths of the Aussie bush. Recommended for those who desire an inner elevating experience from an overall experimental organic sound. Get ready for a vibrational voyage to unite ones spirit, body and mind to Mother Earth.

Legacy is Australian progressive artist created by Rhyss Shandiman based in North Queensland. For many years, this unique project has taken on many influences from around the world, but has tailored a sound specific to the region of Australia where he as been based. Nth Queensland. Being an integral member of the local outdoor psychedelic music community, this has given him many opportunities to be a part of showcasing local talent. As Co-Founder of No Qualms records, Rhyss has also had the opportunity to really experience progression in his local area. Musically, Legacy has released a few different labels, including Cosmic Conspiracy, Solar Records, 3l3mental and of course No Qualms, with his EP in late 2012, “One Sitting”. With many future releases on the way, definitely keep you ears peeled for more Legacy to come, and No Qualms records.

The Ryanosaurus sound is a monstrous mix of phat baselines, glitchy soundscapes, emotive melody and a sly playfulness. It walks the line between progressive and full on psychedelic trance, with frequent forays into foreign styles and influences.
The project begun as a place to release the solo work of Ryan Whare from Australia. With a drive for interesting but crisp and powerful production, the psychedelic trance genre was an instant attraction. After years of cutting his teeth on the local Sydney scene and writing with Mr Bill for his duo project Electrocado, Ryan begun releasing Ryanosaurus on the free music distributor Ektoplazm, and quickly built up a following for his unique style. He has now had releases on Zenon, Kinematic, Another Psyde, UP, and Hass Records.
