Supermercado Records Presents… Supermercado Live feat. Honeysmack, Vanessa Worm, Hedchef & Jani Ho (ALL LIVE)

Supermercado Records presents Supermercado Live, an all live electronic music event celebrating the DJ Computer Crunk EP out on Supermercado in May. The EP features techno / acid banger “Finger to Finger’ by Honeysmack along with remixes from Luca Lozano (Klasse Wrecks, UK), Vanessa Worm (Optimo, NZ), Nathalie Copello (Dansu Discs, Berlin), Disruptive Pattern Material (Rekids, Detroit) and a host of local legends.

The Supermercado Live experience showcases an ALL LIVE and hardware focussed line-up including Honeysmack, Vanessa Worm, HedChef and Jani Ho at the legendary Night Cat. We have decided to pay homage to the EP and the artist in a way that honours Honeysmack’s pure approach to live electronic performance. Supported by the legendary Vanessa Worm following releases on Optimo, the critically acclaimed album Mosaics and performances at Meredith Music Festival, we are expecting the talent laden line-up to deliver a truly unique and unlikely to be repeated live electronic music experience.


Dr David Haberfeld is Honeysmack, the doctor of live Acid Techno. Labelled a maverick producer and performer who brings a punk-rock aesthetic and philosophy to electronic music. He firmly believes the essence of electronic dance music resides in live improvised performance. Honeysmack has significantly contributed to Australia’s electronic dance music community for 3 decades. Equal parts performer, producer, prankster, punk, disrupter and academic, but all electronic – Honeysmack’s reputation for challenging audiences by pushing the stylistic parameters of Techno is common throughout his work.

His dynamic performances and productions are purely hardware based and centre on Roland’s iconic machines of the 1980s including the TB-303, TR-909 and TR-808. These machines were pivotal in the development of electronic dance music, and David continues to explore new contexts with these vintage machines with a mix of new hardware and modular synthesis.

Every Honeysmack performance and release are pure improvisations with an arsenal of drum machines and synths. There are no laptops, there are no records, there are no CDJs, there are no USBs, this is not DJing, this is LIVE Acid Techno performed and produced in the moment! His PhD in music composition focused on how he creates Acid Techno bangers in real-time!
