An Australian debut. Join us 'For we are the knights of the round record'. Internationals, Locals and Records for an almighty dance party in a space we have all come to know too well.
Shall Not Fade founder KGW took inspiration for the imprint’s name from the poetic prose of a William Shakespeare sonnet, but it was his decision to champion the music of then little-known deep house producer Mall Grab that really put the label on the map. The Australian has since gone on to become one of the most in-demand DJs and producers on the planet, helping other members of the Shall Not Fade family – LK, Steven Be Calm, Aries and Adriyano amongst them– to successfully follow in his wake.
Since launching in December 2015, Shall Not Fade has been delivering music that inspires happiness, dancing and spreading love throughout the world. In the process, the Bristol-based label has birthed a growing family of like-minded producers and DJs whose frequent musical missives have touched the head, heart and soul of music lovers the world over.
The label’s underground success story is built not on hollow hype, but rather releasing high quality electronic music that expresses all that is good about house and techno music in the 21stcentury. As a result, KGW has been able to add a swathe of more experienced names –think Rick Wade, Hanna, Nicholas and Pascal Viscardi, for starters – to the label’s bulging roster of artists, encouraging his younger talents to exchange ideas with these respected masters of their art.
3 Years of Shall Not Fade - SYDNEY
Willaris. K is thrilled to announce the Alchemy EP Tour, his first full national headline tour of Australia. The tour follows the completely sold out east coast tour in May, selling out multiple shows in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. In between, he made his US debut at Coachella and debut European appearances to packed stages at Forbidden Fruit in Dublin, Watergate in Berlin and Kurschluss Warehouse in Slovenia.
The tour will come in celebration of the release of his highly anticipated debut EP Alchemy, released on 8 June via Soothsayer. ‘Risen’ is the fourth song to be taken off Willaris. K’s debut EP, a 7-track mini album that moves between thick industrial techno and sparse pensive melodic moments. The Alchemy EP features his previous singles - the debut single ‘Alchemy’ that saw Willaris. K break through with airplay on triple j, followed by ‘Dour Nights’ which was named by BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong as his Essential New Tune - as well as four new tracks, which together explore themes of transience, movement, darkness and currents. Together, the EP tracks have attracted over 2 million streams on Spotify, reached #2 on the iTunes Electronic Chart, with Willaris. K also being highlighted as Apple’s New Artist of the Week.
In 2017-18 McAllister played an unrivalled number of festival shows in Australia and NZ with over 25 live sets brimming with his trademark punk-influenced stage presence - all ahead of his international debuts and sold out Australian headline tour

HUMAN MOVEMENT • [ 3 HOURS ]
We know we really don’t have to tell you guys anything about who these lads are, but for those of you who have been under a rock for the last year or so, we’ll fill you. Blake & Eddie have been nonetheless killing it within AUS atm and have really set a bench mark for all aspiring house/techno producers within Sydney and beyond. With their Dancing Room EP announcing their immediate arrival onto the scene, Human Movement have gone one better from the EP of belters, more recently producing their Subcity EP (premiered by music giants THUMP), as well as their latest single ‘Right Thang’ , which features a beautiful combination of grooves that gave us an insight into how their sound is maturing and shaping a dominant future in the house/techno scene.
Subcity EP: https://soundcloud.com/humanmovement-aus/sets/subcity-ep
Over the last 12 months the lads have had the pleasure of throwing not one, not two, but 3 SOLD OUT HUMAN MOVEMENT PARTIES. Selling out venues such as Civic Underground, Midnight Shift and Beach Road, it just shows you the backing that these boys have picked up within their great acceleration to the top of the underground food chain. If any of you were lucky enough to go to one of these parties you’d well and truly know by now that the show that these boys put on is second to none, ensuring that Gateway’s Warehouse Party will not be one to miss. Whilst these parties have been in the works, the movement have also been blessed to be playing at some whopping festivals such as Splendour in the Grass, Groovin’ the Moo, Soundscape & more… as well as recently returning to Midnight Shift to support the king - DJ Boring.
Our pick of the bunch: https://soundcloud.com/kitsune-maison/human-movement-right-thang-feat-eliot-porter-human-movement-re-suss?in=humanmovement-aus%2Fsets%2Fright-thang-ep-kitsune
Catching Human Movement at our upcoming warehouse party on the 16th of June is certainly the right thang to do, and you’d be better off dead if you miss out on a tickie ;)
...along side the lads at Human Movement, we have selected a great range of Gateway’s very own to hop on the supporting sets.
Ben Adams & James Pepper & Max Maunsell • [ 3 HOURS ]
After all of these three recently tearing up the underground of Civic for our SubRoom phenomenas, Ben, James & Max have decided to join forces for this one and together bring you a 3 HOUR set of absolute bliss to lead into the Movement’s attack. Ben Adams & Max Maunsell have been recently playing a handful of shows together under some of Sydney’s biggest house techno entities, currently playing many a show as the residents of Sessions to sold out gigs again in the underground. Along side these two see’s James Pepper join them who has recently seen the backings of some of Sydney’s biggest techno artists as well as having a huge write up from the boys at Stoney Roads. If any of you were there to watch these 3 tear it up in support of Monika Ross at a sold out Civic Underground, you’d know that the combination between the three of these boys along side Human Movement will be something you MUST NOT miss out on.
