The ACCA Art Bar is back, bigger, brighter and better than ever.
We’re teaming up with ACCA to bring you sensational artists as part of their Art Bar series throughout 2013.
Join us on Friday 1 March, as we kick off our first ACCA Art Bar of the year.
Oscar Key Sung (of renowned Melbourne duo Oscar + Martin) will draw you in with his rich vocals, deep bass and honest words. Think soulful melodies over tape loops and beats. The result is nothing short of luscious, and with an album on the cards in 2013 catch him first, live at ACCA.
Oscar will be followed by long time music lovers and collectors, Two Bright Lakes DJs, who will finish off the ACCA Art Bar with diverse, danceworthy selections.
ACCA’s current exhibition Desire Lines will stay open until 7.30pm for an exclusive, extended viewing before it closes on 3 March.
Embrace the end of the week at the ACCA Art Bar.
FRIDAY 1 MARCH 6pm – 10:30pm

Two Bright Lakes is 5 years old and excited to welcome Philly beatmaker KNXWLEDGE to Australia for very first time. The highly regarded remixer and producer follows on the back of worldwide acclaim and work for some of the biggest names in the business. With support from Two Bright Lakes family Oscar + Martin and Fox & Sui, come and join us as we boogie on our Birthday with TBL DJ’s before between and after it’s all done.
If you don’t know KNXWLEDGE, he performs live as an undefinable and unexplainable solo unit, channelling the vibes (and facing comparisons) of J DIlla, Madlib, Flying Lotus and associates, his work is thematic and naturally organic.
Releasing on LA’s acclaimed All City, Tres Records, Klipmode and Hit+Run, his name caught the eye of London’s Boiler Room who invited him to perform on their legendary podcast series. With support from the likes of Benji B, Mary Anne Hobbs, RinseFM, Future Classic, Illumsphere, and Mike Slott, he is a name on the rise with a sound for the stars.
Available now at http://www.moshtix.com.au/event.aspx?id=58143 and on the door if there are any left.
Thank you to everyone who has helped us get to this point, we could not have done it without our friends, mentors and fellow artists. And most of all thank you to everyone who listened and came to events, there is much more to come, happy listening…
love Two Bright Lakes

It’s that time of year again where we weigh up all that has happened this year, throw some opinions around, and celebrate all of the good things that transpired in 2011. It’s been a very busy year for us at Two Bright Lakes, we want to thank everyone who came to shows, bought records and listened to the music that ‘s been released and said nice things about it, we really appreciate all of those things.
We put out some of our favourite records ever in the form of Collarbones, Oscar+Martin, Dream Kit, Batrider and Nick Huggins. We helped put on the the inaugural Sugar Mountain Festival in January, we braved endless rain for the Melbourne Music Week rooftop show, toured Virgo Four twice, took part in the Galactic Nights series, put on countless excellent local shows with musicians from near and far…we’re collecting an archive of photos and videos of shows from the year, and we’ll be posting them somewhere soon.
In the meantime, here are some reflections by some of the Lakes people on what they thought was great about 2011 and time and space in general…
Hazel Brown (Otouto):
1. Shabazz Palaces – Black Up
2. Arthur Russell – Lets Go Swimming
3. Hercules and Love Affair – Blue Songs
4. Gillian Welch – The Harrow & The Harvest
5. Motor City Drum Ensemble – DJ Kicks
6. Nicolas Jaar – Space is Only Noise
5 Low Budget Music Videos of 2011 (no order)
