Goodgod Super Club presents: Karizma & Ben Fester
26 May9pm, Studio. $39
The guiding spirit of underground Sydney nightlife lives again, just when we need it most - with Goodgod taking over the basement, choosing the DJs and hosting a celebration and reminder of the nightclub as an important cultural space. Over four giant evenings the Sydney Opera House Studio becomes a custom-built after-hours haven for 4 gold-standard selectors of impeccable taste each playing 3+ hour sets of dancefloor devotion, the perfect House to present a persistent icon of credible house music - Karizma, alongside Sydney’s own Ben Fester for Vivid LIVE.
Success arrived in the mid-1990s for Baltimore’s Karizma when he and then-production partner DJ Spen hooked up with legendary house-music crew the Basement Boys, becoming among the most in-demand producers of the era remixing the likes of Mary J Blige and Michael Jackson. Karizma’s continued blitzing the new millennium with respected choppy and propulsive club bangers, dark + menacing electronic tones and buoyant catchy re-edits holding classy dancefloors the world over in thrall.
Ben Fester made his name with his string of Heavenly parties in Sydney + having opened for electronic luminaries like Floating Points and Jay Daniel.
In 2015, the legendary underground Sydney venue Goodgod Small Club came to a dramatic end after bringing Sydney five unforgettable years of sweaty heady all night music. Providing the perfect low-lit and intimate scene for iconic DJ sets from the likes of Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, Four Tet and Jamie xx, the Goodgod crew also nurtured a loyal Sydney community – exploring with artistic breadth how people united can forge a transcendent journey through dance.
Debuting their first 100% custom Goodgod job in the Studio last year, the city-side champions of taste + fun will prove stronger, louder and more eclectic than ever in their presentation of the Goodgod Super Club Mk II, the 2017 limited edition.
