Stephen Pavlovic Talks Vivid Live Lineup

Earlier this week at Modular HQ we sat down with Stephen Pavlovic and asked him to share his thoughts on a few of the artists on the Vivid Live lineup. This is what he had to say.

???? ????
"As classic as they come in our books, it's going to be a true one-off."

?????????
"Has created some of the most mind melting visuals ever and his work is virtually a signpost of this generation. Truly ground-breaking and always surprising."

????? ???
"Always moving forwards, sideways, upside down, any which way but backwards, always an entertaining live outfit. They are amassing a fantastic catalogue and know how to bring it to the stage."

??? ?????
"An institution of sorts, a weekly night of the gay persuasion that's been earning devotees for its extra jovial atmosphere and deep excavations into the history of dance music. These guys mix up an extraordinary blend of retro and modern disco, pop anthems and camp classics with more fun than you can poke your dick at."

???????
"If this is what space sounds like please take me there. Floating through a cloud of angelic squawk on a bed of heartbreak, no one does beautiful noise like this."

???? ??? ???
"Electrifying and invigorating as hell, when it was discovered that they create enough energy between them in one show to power the Opera House for a decade we knew we had to get them down to capture that power. This is destined to be something very special."

?? ????
"A modern day diva. She spins the kind of enchanting webs that are a joy to get stuck in. Expect a wondrous, sweeping performance."

???????
"It's so punk rock. I love it!"

??????
"This mystic forest pop outfit have crafted their own world of kaleidoscopic pop since coming to our attention. Gorgeous harmonies, rugged guitar explorations and pristine wandering instrumentals make up their arsenal and it's an explosive brew."

??? ???
"Sounding like a combination of New York '79, Chicago in '86 and the world in the future, this sizzling update of classic house and electro pop is unbeatable in the discotheque and in your dreams, one of the most exciting new directions in dance music is here."
