In October earlier this year, Aussie party starter Tom Lowndes AKA Hot Dub Time Machine brought his new 1990-2022 dance music hits show ‘Hot Dub Rave Machine’ to the hallowed walls of London’s Printworks, alongside nostalgia-inducing support from Utah Saints and Friendly Fires.
To a packed house, he took thousands of partygoers on a two-hour journey through time and sound, opening with an acapella of Loleatta Holloway’s ‘Love Sensation’ – a song which became the centre of a protracted legal dispute after Italian dance trio Black Box sampled her vocal for ‘Ride On Time’. Moving through ‘90s bangers such as Underworld’s ‘Born Slippy’, iconic moments from the 2000s and 2010s like ‘Satisfaction’ by Benny Benassi and Flume’s ‘Never Be Like You’, all up until the current day – the set was as much of an education in dancefloor history as an experience for ravers.
If you missed the set, don’t worry because you can still catch up on the lesson. We captured the full two hours and five minutes so you can listen back and feel the energy of the historic South-East London club, which may not be around for too much longer.
If you’re Australasia-local and gagging for the full live experience, Hot Dub Time Machine is will be playing shows in Torquay, Adelaide and Hobart across the next few months. For tickets and to keep up to date with his gig dates visit his official website.
