About Xan Müller and Haptic...
Xan Müller is a classically trained pianist and university trained synthesis engineer. His music has featured with Ministry of Sound, Triple J, Big Day Out, BMW, Disney and Channel 9. Recent achievements include remixing acclaimed Australian dance music producer Paul Mac, supporting UK drum n bass superstar Wilkinson and hosting Surveillance Party Radar at Oxford Art Factory.
Haptic is a full time television audio engineer by day and a subversive technologist by night. As a mixer for My Kitchen Rules and Beatport chart topper with Barcelona label Suara, Haptic shatters the boundary between corporate pragmatism and unbridled creativity. His hand-made electronic reactable instrument can be seen on the streets of Newtown, pumping out beats triggered by cryptic cubes into the far reaches of the night.
Surveillance Party is a digital record label, artist stable and warehouse party crew based in Sydney’s premier cultural hub, Newtown. Founded in 2013 with the goal of creating a positive and inclusive scene for people to enjoy up and coming tunes, the Surveillance Party crew have developed a singular music-sharing vision that sees them present regular local music events, sell and stream digital releases across the globe and foster memorable musical experiences for artists and fans alike.
Originally begun by Sydney producers Haptic and Xan Müller, Surveillance Party has grown under the guidance of label director Courtney Calloway to include a roster of over twenty artists from Australia and abroad, from genres as diverse as folk, indie rock, psytrance, drum n bass, garage house, chiptune and experimental.
The label’s success is contingent on the good times generated by a broad and inclusive approach to music, people, parties and the culture of Sydney.
