    [ BackToThe90sII ]
    -== Back To The 90's II - HaRdCoRe History Edition : [Fri 6th Nov 15] ==-

    DJ's :- DJ Steil (Early aCiD / Techno 9-10pm), Fuxxy vs Craziest (Early Club / Rave 9-10pm),
    Greg Packer & MC Xsessiv (Journey through 90's Rave sound 10-12am), Hutcho vs NVS (93-98 Breakbeat Jungle/HaRdCoRe 12-2am).
    MC's :- MC Xsessiv, MC Danny B, Hutcho, Slap N Tickle (had to cancel).

    From the combined crews who brought you the 'Pure OldSchool' events and the recent MASSIVE 'Berlin Reunion' it's time for another Back 2 the 90's installment!!
    "Back 2 the 90s HaRdCoRe History Edition - will focus on the harder sounds of the 90s - Come along and dance to Techno, aCiD, Early Rave, Jungle, HaRdCoRe and more played by the original Perth Djs that pushed the sounds back in the day - all at an Old Skool price!".

    A nice little casual Old Skool night & vibe was on offer here...lots of crew that missed August's legendary 'Berlin Reunion' made it down which was nice, as well as a lot of original Gravity Crew etc. Right from Steil's early aCiD/Techno, through to Fuxxy & Craziest speedin up the vibe & pace with some classic (& not often heard) Old Skool Rave classics bangin out on the crackin new Air Force One Sound System. Hittin the 1's & 2's next was the Perth legend Greg Packer, teamed with MC Xcessiv & they smashed out a nice varied set of Classic Club/House, Rave, Breakbeat, Jungle & finally into classic DnB...a nice history span of genres indeed & a set not many could pull off. Somehow next NVS & I assumed the decks - it was yet another (happily so) drunken weekender & another B2B set w/tha man & MC Danny B rippin it on tha mic - definately channelling our inner Drunken Master spirit (and drinking him as well?) for what turned out to be one of the most fun Gravity-style classic 93-98 Breakbeat & HaRdCoRe (w/a few bangers thrown in!) mashup sets we've played in AGES...really got locked in 'the zone' - good example I told Dan "we'd play 1 more to finish the night on time", he replied looking confused "but you have another hour yet" (I go back to my multiple beers & dig thru my crate like nothin's up) whoops **hic**!!

    [ DJSmurfTour2015 ]

    Presented by the Nightmare Crew, this rare underground night featuring the visit of an International Gabber/HaRdCoRe DJ is...Returning to Australia for the first time since 2011, Smurf is once again ready to turn the crowd into blue goo!.

    DJ Smurf (UK) - "Standing at only 3 apples tall and a beer belly that is 6 apples wide, with his trademark thumbs up sign, beer dribbles down his chin and dress sense of a 12yr old boy (if it's not blue it's poo) Smurf is often described as the 'Frank Spencer' of HaRdCoRe. Smurf's blend of 200 BPM+ hardcore beats mixed with cartoons, pop samples, oldskool sounds and all kinds of noise is just like him. As each track reflects his personality in some way as its transmitted from his heart & mind, via the mixing desk and out of the speakers and into the audience. On the rare occasion when each track is mixed in perfectly, you can feel the dance-floor wondering what they are hearing while trying to keep up with the frantic and energetic DENG, as Smurf has them by their balls and boobies.
    Hailing from Newcastle, England and DJ'ing since 1992, Smurf is not just a HaRdCoRe DJ, he is an "experience"...He will leave your mind in a state"!

    [ RinseOut005 ]
    -== Rinse Out 5 Sub Zero Laneway Party : [Sat 19th Dec 15] ==-

    DJ's :- Sub Zero (UK / Playaz Recs), local support TBA.

    Mizhap Productions crew presents this special Jungle/D&B event, featuring the UK's legendary Sub Zero - "To wrap up an amazing year, we are partying under the stars for one very special night of epic proportions. The FUNKTION 1 will be in full force, because what is Drum & Bass without BASS?".

    Jake Carter (aka Sub Zero) - "has been an unstoppable force within drum & bass for almost a decade. After building massive respect and connections within the scene as one half of acclaimed Geordie jump up duo G-Dub, his solo output since 2009 has seen Sub Zero smash out some of drum & bass’s most destructive releases, from his tear-out debut ‘Spin Doc’ to ‘Ooh Baby’, ‘Dodge City’ and of course, ‘Poon’. Sub Zero has risen to become a major weapon on the Real Playaz/Ganja Records label, and his release schedule for 2011-12 went stratospheric. As Jake’s production diversified, breathing new styles and life into jump up with strains of dark & minimal drum & bass, praise has been rolling in from heads such as Metalheadz don Goldie, Shogun boss Friction and S.P.Y. His debut Bipolar EP on Real Playaz has fully unleashed the split-personality production of this versatile artist, reflecting a scene that has become stronger for its diversification over the last few years. When he’s not smashing out titanium-hard DJ sets worldwide in South Africa, the US, Russia, Australia, Canada, China and all over Europe, Jake kicks back in Leicester and works on his next breath-taking release for the Playaz crew, and heads down to London monthly to smash out a residency set at Fabric’s colossal True Playaz events. With Sub Zero was voted DJ ravers most wanted to see at the world’s biggest drum & bass festival (Saint-Petersburg’s Pirate Station), and with every release he puts out going straight to the top of every download chart, Sub Zero’s massive popularity and fierce reputation as a producer isn’t slowing down anytime soon. And after the versatility and vision shown by his debut Bipolar EP, the scene had better watch out for his next move.".
