Carl Cox and Eric Powell are excited to announce that ‘Mobile Disco’ will be a little earlier this time around, as well as including various other cities around the country. Time flies when you’re having fun! For their Melbourne show, it’ll be their 10th Birthday at the stunning Riva on Elwood Beach.
Headlining these amazing events is one of the world’s biggest, most loved and respected DJs: Carl Cox. Joined by his esteemed partner in crime Eric Powell, the dynamic duo’s ‘Mobile Disco’ will be entertaining the crowds for most of the day & will see the boys digging deep in their record crates to spin old and new disco, jazz-funk, soul and classic house tunes. Fresh from his final season at Space in Ibiza, after a 15 year residency no less, Carl Cox will be back in Australia right in time for the start of Summer 2016/17 – “Oh Yes, Oh Yes.”
Joining Carl and Eric for an un-missable LIVE performance will be the funksters themselves: De La Soul. The Grammy Award Winning American group who have a new album on the horizon, will be belting out timeless hits including: ‘All Good,’ ‘Me, Myself & I’ and ‘Ring, Ring, Ring,’ alongside their latest tracks. Plus just announced, the amazing Alison Limerick, with hits including: Where Love Lives, Make it on My Own, Time of Our Lives.
Alison Limerick is one of the most celebrated and recognisable voices in house music and has been ever since the birth of the genre itself, in the early nineties. Born in London, Limerick’s singing career began in the musical ‘Labelled With Love,’ which was based around the music of Squeeze, and from there she went on to perform in other famous musicals including: Webber’s ‘Starlight Express’ and Simon Callow’s ‘The Pajama game.’ At the same time Alison was doing plenty of session work with the likes of: The Style Council and This Mortal Coil and numerous other artists.
Of course, her best-known hits are ‘Where Love Lives’ and ‘Make it On My Own’ from her debut album ‘And Still I Rise,’ which was released in March 1992. The same year Alison won the ‘Best Female Artist Award’ at 1992’s DMC Awards and ‘Where Love Lives’ became a true house music anthem. Following the success of that track, Alison went on to work with huge stars such as: Frankie Knuckles, Tim Bran and David Morales, was nominated for a MOBO award in 1996 and again topped the dance charts with ‘Make It On My Own’ after a re-release in the US of ‘Where Love Lives’ went Top 4 on the Billboard chart. Nowadays, Alison continues to record and to sing live and for PAs with her own band and with others. She can be heard singing soul and jazz in various venues across Europe and remains to this day as a true ‘Dance diva’ in house music venues around the world.
