UNFD is pleased to announce a Melbourne showcase celebrating its 10 year anniversary in 2021.
Going down at The Corner Hotel on Wednesday December 1, the event will include four of the label’s artists playing sets, as well as a pop up merch stall and DJ sets from other label-mates. The event will offer exclusive access to merch items and limited edition vinyl, giving punters at the showcase the chance to snag some of the last remaining copies of their favourite titles. Stay tuned to the Facebook Event as the full lineup is set to be release in the week leading up to the show.
To kick off its 10 year anniversary celebrations earlier this year, UNFD launched an exclusive eco-friendly vinyl re-issue series celebrating some of its most-loved releases from the last decade, as well as an official podcast deep diving into the artists and legacy behind each album. Inspired by the success of In Hearts Wake’s 2020 album KALIYUGA, each record re-press has been produced using recycled materials with no plastic shrink wrap, while the pressing process itself has been carbon offset.
So far the series has celebrated In Hearts Wake‘s acclaimed double-album effort in ‘Earthwalker’ and ‘Skydancer’, Hellions‘ rock-opera masterpiece ‘Opera Oblivia’, Dream On Dreamer‘s show stopping debut ‘Heartbound’, Stray From The Path‘s beast-like ‘Subliminal Criminals’ and breakout EP efforts from the likes of Thornhill (‘Butterfly’) and Dream State (‘Recovery’) with re-presses.
Each artist has also joined the Official UNFD Podcast, hosted by The Faction/ex-Triple M’s David Nash for an interview and deep dive into the release, with a further handful of episodes and re-releases still to be revealed before the year is out.
