In spite of the fact she hails from Sydney, MINX is a name synonymous to Queensland’s clubbing scene and festival circuit as a consistently strong and omnipresent DJane and producer. She is notorious for rocking the dancefloor while jet setting between Ibiza and East coast of Australia for such parties at Pacha, Marquee, Platinum Nightclub and Family Nightclub with the Grammy Awards After Party in LA and the UK to her credit. She’s shared the bill with massive names like Diplo, Deadmau5, Erick Morillo and Tiesto where her experiences with them see her productions and mixes delving into the many hues of emotions coloured by the dancefloor. From hands in the air to dark and capricious, MINX knows how to drive the underground sound. And she comes to Brisbane to launch BLKMRKT from Prohibition Brisbane.
As an underground economy, BLKMRKT trades in secret experimental subterranean sounds for a revolutionary and radical approach to underground music. Prohibition Brisbane brings this monthly party to their dancefloor, presenting a careful selection of underground house artists for a diverse and musically astute crowd. This is one night where the crowd, the dance floor, atmosphere and music take precedence over anything else. BLKMRKT returns dance music to its roots with UK sensation Jesse Rose slated for October 30 and Chicago house legend Derrick Carter scheduled for November 13 in celebration of his first set at now infamous The Tube Nightclub. As the ultimate reunion for the infamous Brisbane club institution and the scene for modern-day Prohibition Brisbane, the glory days of 1995 and The Tube returns for one special night with local house music stalwarts DJs Rousey, Scott and Benn Hopkins onboard for a helluva ride.
If we look at BLKMRKT as the illegal trading of soundtracks outside the formalities of everyday life, it’s the ultimate clandestine clash against authoritar. And as a tribute to launching BLKMRKT alongside Beth Yen while fresh from gigs in Ibiza, we delve into MINX‘s Top 5 BLKMRKT Tracks.
