One of the world’s most legendary happy hardcore producers, his pop culture hardcore hits including the likes of Pika Girl, Princess Bubblegum, MTC, Neko Nation Anthem remix and more! In 2005 S3RL was signed by Kevin Energy and Sharkey’s Nu Energy Collective in 2005, being one of the first in Australia to be signed to a major hardcore label. S3RL was highly sought after by numerous record labels which would later lead to him creating one of the largest happy hardcore labels, EMFA Records.
S3RL’s popularity knows no bounds, with massive success worldwide, which has seen him travel all over the world, developing a large fan base across America, Europe, Japan and many other destinations across the world. S3RL has come off the back of an absolutely incredible 2016, he was the official support DJ for TeddyLoid, did an absolutely mega tour in America and recently had a successful DJ tour in Japan and 2017 is only going to get bigger and better as after a number of successful American anime convention after parties, he will be playing at his first official Australian anime convention after party!
Anime, J-Pop, Dnb, J-Core
One of Australia’s most famous anime and Japanese music DJ’s. Catalystic has made a name for himself as the number choice for anime convention DJ’s across Australia having made his presence at SMASH, AVCon and now Madman Anime Festival! He’s played a major influence in his role of attracting a number of Japanese guests to Australia including TeddyLoid and Yui Kanan and has played support for Vocaloid legends such as livetune, Hachioji P and the Sydney screening of IA. One of Neko Nation’s most versatile DJs having played Neko staples such as J-Pop, J-Core and anime, to the more out there genres such as Vaporwave and lolicore. Catalystic will be cranking out not one but four sets, including an Anime and J-Pop set earlier in the night and a DnB and J-Core set to go hard to close the night.
J-Pop and K-Pop
Miss Meow has been Neko Nation Purrth and Adelaide’s resident J-Pop and K-Pop for a few years now. A massive fan of all things J-Pop and K-Pop, avid lover of PopAsia, cosplay and alpacas. Miss Meow is a mega talented star well known for her work in the convention, alternative and cosplay events scene and is looking forward to playing at Neko Nation Purrth!
One of Perth’s most famous and experienced hardcore DJ’s. Oki Doki has been playing at a number of club events and raves around Perth for the likes of F.O.R.C.E., Nightmare Crew, Electrified and more. For this superstar Japanese DJ, Neko is her chance to play a wide variety of her favourite Japanese hardcore hits and fast paced anime remixes which are not to be missed!
2016 has been a big year for Synthwave and Neko Nation has celebrated that with a number of awesome Synthwave DJ’s who have joined Neko Nation last year and we’re looking to continue that in 2017. In Perth we have Mek, a long time lover of Synthwave both musically and aesthetically with his love of 80’s sci-fi films both good and cheesily bad. Once again prepare for an amazing retro futuristic trip with the sounds of Mek!
By far the most experienced DJ Neko Nation has to offer, Razz has been a resident DJ at numerous Gilkison Dance Studio events, clubs, boat parties and is quite well known in the Perth DJ party scene. He brings to Neko one of the bizarrest sets Neko Nation has to offer and that is Bubblegum Pop, 90’s cheese, for some it’s the most amazing set and music you’ll hear, for some it’ll be the most cringiest set you can imagine, either way it’s always gotten quite a reaction and popular with those who love it!
Some of you may know this man from his epic gaming setups not only conventions like Furwag & Neko. Now we are pleased to bring to you the Neko Nation Debut of DJ Fractals! With their first live event at furwag getting an encore request, he’s sure to get your ears twitching with some epic gaming tunes!
Neko Nation is Madman Anime Festival’s Official After Party
Exciting news to kick off 2017, Neko Nation has been chosen to host all the Madman Anime Festival after party events, which kicks off on March 4th 2017 in Perth. To celebrate this occasion, we will also be bringing in the amazing DJ S3RL, famous for his work on many anime, gaming and pop culture inspired hardcore tracks, including Princess Bubblegum, Neon Genesis, MTC and his remix of the Neko Nation anthem.
With ticketing for this event, there are two ways you can save by buying presale tickets in advance from either online or Tokyo Underground in person, which we recommend as our Perth shows with S3RL prove to be incredibly popular. If you don’t buy in advance but have an Madman Anime Festival pass you will still be charged the presale price on the door, if you’re one of the lucky people with a VIP Pass, even better as you’ll get free entry!
We will also be opening our doors one hour earlier, so you can head straight from Madman Anime Festival to Neko Nation Purrth and start partying. Expect all the usual awesome DJs, video gaming, firetwirlers, entertainers and free sushi served by catgirls and catboys as the perfect way to party hard on the most mega anime weekend of the year in Purrth!
