Mic Newman at Cuckoo Bar - 7/05/11

TEA rolled into Cuckoo Bar for its first Adelaide party of 2011 with usual suspects The Carter Brothers and James Manning in tow. Melbourne's deep house don Mic Newman was on the blower dialling in some delictable house cuts to an already spritely dance floor, ready to add another coat of red to Cuckoo Bar's deeply rubicund walls. Mic Newman and the Adelaide faithful didn't disappoint as Cuckoo was filled with a sense of unity, hedonism and abandonment that will no doubt be talked about for weeks to come.

The first hour of the night belonged to Cuckoo Music controller Phil Rogers aka Phildo with some urbane house selections to set the tone. TEA residents Tim and Gavin Carter aka the loveable Carter Brothers brought their full disco jacket to Cuckoo's main room with an array of secret weapons. Rush Hour's debuting duo kept things pure as the driven snow, wooing heads from the bar and onto the dance floor. Tim Carter edged towards some deeper sounds with the occasional stepped style while Carter #2 Gavin indulged in some Detroit sentiment adding drive and momentum with plenty of that trademark Carter Brother sound fuelling many of Cuckoo's parties.

Mic Newman, 726 Kilometers from his (03) dialling code of Victoria, rung up some previously unheard Micky Nu jams which pulsated through Cuckoo's (08) Funktion 1's. By this stage the party was in full swing sizzling to Sally and prepared to die young all in the name of a good fun. A creative and prolific producer, Newman played two hours of deep and at the same time uplifting house but it was in the how he did so that made the night so special.

As the drinks flowed and good times rolled Cuckoo found itself kicking on with an atmosphere far from dwindling. James Manning finished the party with some cheeky techno cuts mixed in and out of some house and disco jams before waving Gavin Carter over for a final encore mix. Mic Newman's Adelaide soirée saw a scene of sweaty and jovial peeps enjoying the light side of the evenings dark, leaving an anticipation for TEA's next Adelaide party.
