Just like to thank the guys and girls at Kiss90FM for their tremendous effort over the past years in supporting the Dance Music scene in Melbourne. Unfortunately they were unsuccessful in their bid for a full time license, but most definitely successful in running a kick ass radio station for the past 10 years. From my personal experience of running record labels for 4+ years I truly appreciate how important it is to have radio as a medium to expose local talent, and these guys did a fucking great job!!! Well done, the scene in Melbourne wouldn't be this strong without all your hard work!!!

On the party tip, well what can I say-- Summadayze is close to selling out and Welcome is looking massive!! The vibe is full on and I think people are really up to partying this year and have a good time after all the shite that has gone on this year. Its time to celebrate good times and good friends because you only come to appreciate how important they are when you see how hard it is for other people on the other side of the world. So party it up and bring on the X-Mas vibe!!

On the shop front, we just had another awesome sale. Thanks for coming down. It was so successful that we decided to keep our CDs on Sale for X-Mas. They are selling at $15.. so if you are still needing to do X-Mas shopping here is your chance to pick up some nice releases for an affordable price price! Heaps of cool tunes have landed and are on shelves now. Damian has included his in stock sheet with his kooky reviews so you get a good idea of what's in store!!

And finally, from the whole crew at Hardware, we would like to thank everyone who has supported us this year. Its been heaps of fun to say the least and we look forward to a prosperous 2002, for us and the scene in general… Have a safe and fun X-Mas and NYE!!!!

The docks is definitely the place to be NYE. In the Hardware room, Richie Hawtin and Sven Vath will be going head on with a 4 deck mixup as well as individual sets. This is a special treat for us guys in Melbourne as both artists as great fans of the party people here. They will be joined by a host of international and local artists for a night that will be remember for years to come. Join us for the last event at the Docks!!
