Sentropic promoydney's arbiters of organic live electronica present a finely crafted blend of electronic groove and acoustic technique that swings from ambient and avant-garde soundscapes to stomping dance floor anthems. They draw from electronic music styles such as house, drum'n'bass, breaks and dub, and have been likened to artists such as The Necks, Medeski Martin and Wood, Matthew Herbert and Battles. Noice!

Early Saturday nite in the Tantric Turtle Cabaret...

Jo-Mayweb"The best street show I have seen."
- Steven Berkoff.
Jeremy Farquar, butler to the incredibly powerful, is ready to tell some tales. The twisted butler brings you 'The Fool, the cow and the art of corruption'.
Truly unique. Whistle blowing wisdom. Farquar is a Fool.
Everything is an analogy. Nothing is as it seems.
Pearls of wisdom fall gently from the darkenned mouth of this cream faced
loon, using breath taking circus skill to share his truths.
Cabaret brilliance.
