Illuminate Adelaide: Unsound Club


20 July

11.59pm - 3am

Illuminate Adelaide’s Unsound Club returns to The Lab for its third iteration of the event that has quickly grown a cult following.

Everyone has a dark side.

While the city sleeps, the night is far from over. As Unsound Adelaide’s late-night counterpart, Unsound Club beckons you further into the morning hours after the speakers of Dom Polski Centre have powered down.

Featuring a co-curated line-up with the team behind Poland’s Unsound Festival, Unsound Club takes over The Lab @ ILA for one night only with an enviable lineup of artists and DJs to keep your night untamed.

Filled with blinding beats and live visuals across 50sqm of LED screens, leave your preconceived notions at the door and go underground to discover what happens at Unsound when the clock passes midnight.

The dead of winter is made for endless nights like this.


Crescendoll [Gadigal]

Crescendoll is a Gamilaraay woman and Gadigal based DJ. Selected for FBi’s Dance Class 2020 program, she flirts with juke, jersey, footwork, hard drum, UK bass, garage and acid and is an appreciator of all things club. She is a regular on Eora’s dance floors and works as a solicitor at a community legal centre with a focus on police accountability, young people and First Nations justice.

HiTech [Detroit]

HiTech is a Detroit-bred triple-threat collaboration between rapper-producer-DJs King Milo, Milf Melly, and 47Chops. HiTech is putting a modern twist on Detroit’s electrifying ghettotech sound with a mouthful of Hennessy and a double dose of booty-shaking techno. Since first releasing music in 2022, HiTech has performed across the midwest from venues in Detroit, Chicago, and Cleveland to nightclubs and stadiums in New York City, Atlanta, and Denver, as well as overseas at festivals and venues throughout Europe.

Lee Gamble 

Over the last several years Lee has released a string of critically acclaimed albums and EP’s on seminal electronic music labels PAN and Hyperdub, creating his own UIQ imprint in 2015. His work incorporates several interlocking themes of hallucination, nostalgia and memory, noise, hyperreality and the imaginary, social realism, the sound objects of musique concrète and the ever mutating hardcore continuum. His DJ sets have been aptly described as “nothing short of outrageous […] rollercoaster through genre & tempo, spanning sub-destroying bass & grime, dubstep infusions, plenty of breaks and a hefty dose of freaky techno, […] while always remaining highly danceable and exceptionally fun”

Manuka Honey [London]

Bringing chaos, sensuality and ecstatic motion to her productions and selections, Manuka Honey circles club music’s most compelling fringes. In just a few short years, she’s cultivated an idiosyncratic sound that’s shuttled her from continent to continent, assembling a tight catalog of EPs, remixes and singles that harness the energy of Latin-American and Caribbean dance sounds, infusing it into radical new structures. A DJ, producer, multi-disciplinary artist and professional astrologer, Marissa Malik was born and raised in the US before she relocated to London, bringing her hot, humid aura to rainy England. She’s animated by the complex alchemy of the dancefloor, and as likely to reference experimental sounds as she is cumbia or dembow.
