Dj Koze (Pampa, Kompakt) NYE @ Cuckoo

And now to finish the year in the correct manner, an artist who is actually quite difficult to introduce. Dj Koze is no stranger to Production, song writing, and especially not performance. As a producer, Koze’s work has spanned across genres in constantly evolving, fresh, original forms. As a Dj he has become known as one of the worlds best, holding down SPEX magazines title of “Dj Of The Year” from 1999 – 2004.

This is undoubtedly a special night for Cuckoo. And we would love to share it with the people who can appreciate how lucky we are to have Koze here with us.

Tickets are $55 and are available from

Amir Alexander (US, Vanguard Sound) Presented by Cuckoo Music + Transition Records

A true purveyor of the sounds from Detroit, Chicago and New York, with a raw, modern twist...

A Dj. since 93. A producer since 98. A true student of the music/culture. Amir founded Vanguard Sound in February 2006. After making his presence felt in the Chicago club scene via a meteoric rise culminating a Dj watch feature in Chicago’s 5 magazine, he completely disappeared and went beneath the underground to focus solely on advancing his production skills.

Presented by Cuckoo Music & Transition Records with support from Hans Kempster and Martin Regan 

Price - $15 on the door

ODDESSA ALBUM LAUNCH - Oct 12

Oddessa, aka Phil Rogers, owner of Cuckoo bar/nightclub and techno label Cuckoo Music; debuting on Pilot Records under the new moniker with a whole new 10-track album – INTRIGUE.

INTRIGUE will captivate you from start to finish, opening with a short introduction to spark a curiosity - which is instantly addressed with the first drop of soft, atmospheric synth tones and steady progression into an array of Leftfield beats and captivating melodies. The album continues through a series of smooth and seamless changes, taking the listener on a journey through both light and dark sound exploration. While INTRIGUE has clear house and techno undertones (and even the occasional dance floor filler); this is an album best enjoyed through headphones on a rainy day, sunny day, lazy day or weekend recovery.

Red Bull Music Academy Pres. FLAKO (UK-LIVE) 

Flako (Project: Mooncircle/UK) - First ever Australian tour

Friday October 4th
Cuckoo Bar
$10 Door sales only - First come, first served

Doors at 9pm

Supported by:
Oisima (Live)
How Green (Live)
Pilot Dj's

Unintentionally off-the-grid and committed to his personal sound evolution, Flako is more of a Soul-documentarian than a typical beat maker. With roots in Chile, raised in Germany, and currently living in London via Berlin – the man himself is a melange of flavor. His particular sonic palette is a mercurial blend of warm analogue colors and cutting-edge design. His writing is marked by manifest emotion.

Perhaps it’s because of his own cultural diversity -as a Chilean-born, German-raised global resident, otherwise known as Darío Rojo Guerra- and the fact he’s been championed by artists the world over, from LA’s Gaslampkiller and Glasgow’s Hudson Mohawke. Or maybe it’s as a mere product of our global culture. Whatever it is, fLako creates an other-worldy escape from the urbanised surroundings of an overcrowded world. Found-sound samples are absorbed into a textured soundscape of bubbling signals, dissipating into skittering drum beats and unexpected drops, following in the wake of a typically spectral vocal delivery. Those vocals come as one of Guerra’s many pseudonyms, his easy-listening alter ego, Dirg Gerner (RBMA NYC 2013 Participant), who also appears on 2011 fLako track ‘Lonely Town’. Over the exotic rhythms of hollow acoustics and marimbas, he croons, “Have you ever felt the urge to be someone else?” and by the end of Eclosure, it almost feels like you could be.

Nightime Drama Pres. LOWTEC (Workshop / Out To Lunch)

The Nightime Drama lads are back at Cuckoo, and they have a awesome act to rekindle our love for their parties. Lets let their blurb do the talking...

Nightime Drama presents the debut performance from Workshop label owner Lowtec, aka Jens Kuhn.

Jens discography stretches back over fifteen years, starting out with a variety of deep, dusty minimal house cuts on labels such as Out To Lunch, Playhouse and David Moufgang's (aka Move D) label Source Records.

2006 saw the birth of Workshop, which started out with label partner Even Tuell.

This hand-stamped, left of field house label has made a home for like minded artists such as Kassem Mosse and Move D (just to name a few).

We are fortunate enough to have Lowtec play a special LIVE performance alongside Adelaide's very own HMC, with support from Trav Bell and Brother Fox (Jonathan Bennett).


Doors open 10pm
$15 door entry before midnight / $20 afterwards

Drink specials on the night!!!

Cuckoo Bar turns 5! feat. Tornado Wallace (Delusions Of Grandeur)

Who woulda thunk it…. 

Here we are at our 5th birthday, many might have thought it wouldn't have come this far (well we knew it would… haters)
Its been an amazing ride so far, many great parties have slowly transformed our dance floor from a sturdy structure, into what could now be described as a spring board… Acts like Frivolous and Mathew Jonson bringing half their studio in and blowing our minds with their live mayhem. 
The Sidewalk shows, gave whiplash to many a neck. 
Techphonics gracing us with the likes of Dj Bold and Alex Smoke… 
Nighttime Drama repping Berghain like we were in the motherland! 
We were blessed to have the Album launches for some of our finest exports like HMC, The Carter Bros and Oisima. 
These selected highlights are just a snippet, there are many more! We have been privileged to have an amazing support of Artists and promoters around us and not least our loyal customers that come in week in week out!

So without further rant…. Our fifth birthday is going to be one to remember! 
We will be Joined by one of Australia's finest House Producer / Dj's Tornado Wallace! Known for his great journey sets, it seems perfect that he be the one help us celebrate this occasion. 

Support from our tried and tested locals, Our Backbone The Carter Bros vs Sanjii and 12"Phildo. 

Love to see you there for a hug :)
