It’s time to shake it off and prove you’ve still got the moves for one very special night of dancefloor business. Off the back of worldwide attention, SHOUSE (the collaborative project between Ed Service and Jack Madin) will be returning to MMW to play a very special show at Melbourne Museum.
Their recent song Love Tonight has morphed into a global pandemic release phenomenon. Love Tonight has become so many things for so many people. A declaration of love during a time of isolation. A demonstration of solidarity. A cry of collective strength.Straight from their European tour, the cherished party-starters are coming home. Prepare for a masterclass in propulsive, participatory dance music, the perfect way to bring Melbourne back together again.
Prepare for a masterclass of emotive, big room house destined to bring the museum fossils back to life.
SHOUSE is Ed & Jack; a couple of friends who like to hang out to make weirdo-house and the occasional anthem. Their live-house sets these days incorporate a network of analog synthesisers, sequencers and drum machines, along with bizarre instruments tinkered up in Jack's dad's rural shed intersperse. House jam interspersed with huge, choral, anthemic moments. Always a chance to dance, bringing the people together as one within a liminal space. Always a strange, ecstatic, transcendental time.
Their recent song Love Tonight has morphed into a global pandemic release phenomenon. Love Tonight has become so many things for so many people. A declaration of love during a time of isolation. A demonstration of solidarity. A cry of collective strength.
Jack and Ed have spent much of 2020 locked down in Melbourne and are ready to reach out across the world in the spirit of Love Tonight. That is all we need.

After the completion of 2019's MESS Professional Development course, m8riarchy further explored her interest in electronic synthesis. With access to the extensive MESS collection, m8riarchy developed her unique approach to the creation of electronic music.

Komang is Rosie Clynes, a producer and vocalist based on Kulin Country. Blending groove and neo-soul with Balinese spirit, her influences range from trip-hop, electronica and 2000s R&B through to sindhenan (Javanese court singing), gamelan and Indonesian folk-pop.
With a background in theatre, Komang made her shift into music while working as a performer in Jakarta, learning how to produce from the beatmakers and musicians of the city’s jazz and hip hop communities before returning to so-called Australia. Her debut release ‘Dewi’ blends her signature soaring vocals with 90s house-style production and themes around female lineage, with her second single ‘Flex’ premiered on Stamp The Wax, who have hailed Komang as ‘Australia’s next exciting export.’
Creating a vibrant R&B electronic hybrid with an aptitude for prompting club play as much as bedroom listening, she has already rubber-stamped herself as one of Australia’s most exciting and talked about new talents. With her debut EP Mythologies on the immediate horizon, a multidisciplinary vision and burgeoning following both local and international, Komang has cemented herself as one to watch.
