Hot Dub Time Machine joins the TMRW Music, Poster Child rosters
Hot Dub Time Machine is teleporting into the future, signing with TMRW Music for management and its Poster Child agency for bookings.
Sydney artist Tom Lowndes launched the project in 2011 as an audio-visual party concept.
Under the new deal, announced today, Hot Dub will be managed by Stuart Balfour and Pat Ward, with Balfour acting as Hot Dub’s agent.
With two additional show concepts from Hot Dub set to launch in the next 12 months, TMRW Music and Poster Child said they are excited to take Hot Dub into 2021 and beyond.
“I’m still pinching myself about this one,” Balfour said. “I have always had so much time for Tom and now to be working with him on a daily basis is a dream. He has so many exciting ideas for the future I can’t wait to sink my teeth into this.”
TMRW Music Group CEO, Tim McGee, said the pairing is “a perfect fit”.
“With our 30-year history across music and events, Tom and his Hot Dub project are a perfect fit for the company,” McGee said. “We are thrilled to welcome him to the TMRW family.”
Poster Child agency represents both local and international talent, looking after a variety of artists across the electronic and live spectrum including FISHER, Stace Cadet, Little Fritter, Blanke, Norman Jay MBE, Late Nite Tuff Guy, Tori Levett, Mell Hall, Sippy and many more.
“I’m thrilled to be joining TMRW and Poster Child. I think with their resources, experience and enthusiasm they are the perfect group to grow Hot Dub through the 2020s,” Lowndes said.
As one of Australia’s biggest touring DJs and entertainers, Hot Dub has floored crowds at Coachella, is an annual best-seller at Edinburgh Fringe Festival and has blitzed the festival circuit back home in Australia – including Splendour In The Grass, Beyond The Valley and Falls Festival.
Hot Dub showcases songs from every decade and genre of music – ‘60s rock, ‘70s disco, ‘80s classics, ‘90s house, noughties electro, today’s hits – and winds and weaves it into one expansive and electrifying music history lesson.
Each song is played in chronological order – mixed live on turntables – and complemented with archival concert footage and music videos on screens, led by Hot Dub’s own rapturous MC’ing.
