Ben Stevens (UK) – (Fireball / Vicious Circle Recordings) - was the act of the night and burnt up the dance floor at the very first Infexious in 2009, so after numerous requests we finally have him back on our shores. Expect a set of raw uplifting Hard House energy. His Fireball imprint epitomises this exciting style. With fresh exciting ideas whether producing tunes or playing them, and huge energy behind the decks, he knows exactly how to work a dance floor and raise the roof off a club.
Nomad (ACT) – (Atmosphere Recordings) - This Australian wunderkind has excelled in producing high quality, world renowned hard trance and amasses a DJ career playing some of the biggest events of this genre around the globe including Q-Dance’s amazing Defcon 1! With an unmistakable production quality, that has heralded multiple trackitdown chart number 1’s. There is very little wonder why so many DJs are spinning his sound!

[ PrecisionReunion ]
-== Precision Reunion : [Tue 17th Jan 12] ==-

DJ's :- El Hornet vs Muller vs Dan Lucas, Sardi vs Mike L, General Justice vs Jo 19.

"Alongside the much-championed rock bands that frequented the old Hyde Park Hotel Public Bar during the days of the Higgins Family ownership, there were some amazing DJs and electronic artists who went to make up the great Hydey musical pastiche. This all started with the Monday night “Hip Hop” night where many of the future of the scene cut their teeth. In the late 90s after the success of "Hip Hop", Paul Higgins approached me about potentially doing a Tuesday night DJ night. I was listening to a lot of Drum n Bass at the time and thought that a midweek local DnB night might work - thus Precision was born. Precision was a great success over a number of years and helped foster the DnB scene and give punters a cheap night out with quality music. It ran for so long that it became a midweek mainstay. We even put on some Saturday night two and three room DnB events under the banner of Cartridge. With the refurbishment of the Hydey I was approached by El Hornet about potentially doing a reunion gig. He was going to be in town on business and I thought - hey why the hell not? So – we are getting the band back together – well some of them anyway...
No computers and no CDs - just some turntables, some wax and the infamous Tooheys Old and lime by the bucketload."
Unfortunately Mike L & Dan Lucas couldn't make it (as could I...late workshift dammit) - was great to see a night like this though...a different 'rewind theme' DnB event.

Inhibit Promotions presents this DnB Club event - "Phetsta burst onto the Drum & Bass scene in 2005 when he signed exclusively to the legendary Simon Bassline Smith's imprint Technique Recordings. The Australian producer quickly stamped a name for himself within the genre with his early releases. These included his first extended player 'The Congo EP' which cracked the UK Drum & Bass top 10 sales charts, Knowledge Magazine calling it "a production masterpiece". As 2011 rolled in Phetsta dropped his long awaited 'Prism EP'. With a keen eye for the dance floor and production levels that are second to none, The Prism EP delivered across the BPM’s, serving up full-throttle drum & bass alongside some gorgeous dubstep excursions. The four tracks stormed all of the major download charts. In particular Phetsta's collaboration with Mad Decent vocalist Reija Lee 'Run You Down' made major waves in the dubstep scene. The day it hit youtube it was the 6th most viewed music video overall, and 40th overall. Both 'Run You Down' and the title track 'Prism' peaked in the Beatport top 3, 'Run You Down' charting in the the top 10 for two months straight alone. He's has also completed a string of remixes for Those Usual Suspects through One Love / Sony Australia, Bombs Away on Universal Australia, bass label Never Say Die and the legendary D&B powerhouse Hospital Recordings. Phetsta's music has received DJ support from Pendulum, Skream & Benga, TC, Rusko, Richard Kingsmill and Zane Lowe".

These two need no introduction to Perth, tearing up clubs to sell out crowds on every occasion, these two are about to yet again, blow the roof off Rosemount Hotel.

The prolific “Mampi Swift” aka Phil Anim, formally known as Swift.

DJ's :- Dieselboy (US) [Human Imprint/SubHuman Recs], Concord Dawn (NZ) [Uprising Recs], Killswitch, Voltron, Illusiv vs DVise
MC's :- Xsessiv, Stylee.

The Inhibit Crew presents this massive DnB event - "Just when you though this summer couldn't get any hotter - Inhibit are turning up the HEAT even further as we storm the world famous Villa Nightclub for a no holds barred Drum & Bass spectacular - featuring none other than DIESELBOY and CONCORD DAWN - two of D&B's biggest and most influential pioneering artists, both have been around since the early years yet both have managed to remain fresh at the forefront of the scene to this very day. Every so often my friends something special comes along, a magical event that has people saying for years to come "I was there". DO NOT MISS THIS"...
Dieselboy - the stage name of Damian Higgins, an American DnB DJ, producer, remixer, founder of the Human Imprint music label, and co-founder of its sublabel SubHuman : Human Imprint which launched in September 2010. He was the first American to be voted into the UK-based Drum & Bass Arena Top 10 DJs 2004 online poll, and has played events on six continents. He was also the first drum 'n' bass artist to chart a single on Billboard's dance chart with Invid in 2000. The undisputed godfather of American DnB and virtually built the scene from the ground up as a DJ and promoter in the 90's. 2000 saw Dieselboy joining forces with Palm Pictures/Island Recordings and his releases The Descent, Invid, Render & The 6ixth Session double CD. In 2002, he founded Human Imprint, the DnB imprint of electronic dance music label System Recordings. HUMAN moved to the forefront of the North American dnb movement, its catalog evolving into an international rogue’s gallery of dnb heavyweights with cutting edge singles, EP’s and mixed CD’s that stand as futuristic dnb classics. Human releases include Dieselboy's “projectHUMAN” (2002) and “The Dungeonmaster's Guide” (2004), as well as releases by a number of other artists. In April 2006, Dieselboy released his first Human Imprint compilation, a 2XCD set called "The HUMAN Resource", which debuted at #14 on the Billboard electronic album chart. In 2010 Dieselboy launched his own label Subhuman Imprint for dubstep and electro releases. On January 31, 2011, Dieselboy released his first new mix in two and a half years, "Dieselboy - Unleashed!" (56 tracks, 73 minutes), as a free download on Soundcloud.
Concord Dawn - (aka Evan Short & Matt Harvey) burst onto the NZealand music scene back in mid 1999 with their unique high octane DnB sound. They were the darlings of the local bNet / Student Radio stations up and down NZ, getting hefty primetime airplay, featuring at the top of the weekly Top Ten’s and breaking chart records across the bNet. After a year or so of underground success they were courted by local electronic music label Kog Transmissions and released their first album Concord Dawn in July 2000. Their 3rd album Uprising with tracks like “Morning Light” and “Don’t Tell Me” found international acclaim well before the album’s release. Uprising was released in NZ in Sept 2003 and reached gold sales status in an amazing 3 months. Work on their long awaited 4th album was completed in early 2005 and was titled Chaos By Design to express the album’s musically eclectic nature & was released once again to huge acclaim. In 2010 the first solo Concord Dawn record "The Enemy Within" was released, with guests and collaborations including Thomas Oliver, Rido, JDubs, Nina McSweeney and Paul McLaney. Following this was 2011s "The Race To Zero" EP as well as collaborations with Trei, Jade and State of Mind set be released in the second half of 2011.

TrentSlingshot, On Point Promotions & Base101 Crew present this very special Hip Hop Event - "A groundbreaking Australian first...Yes, you read correct. The “Teacha” is embarking on a month long boat cruise from the United States to school Aussie’s on the true origins of the urban-street culture known in the world today as “Hip Hop”. It was KRS-One who first argued that “rap is something we do; Hip Hop is something we live”. Appearing on the rap scene in 1986 as part of Boogie Down Productions, with the late DJ Scott La Rock, KRS made it clear that he was “the Teacha” with the release of his first hit single “South Bronx”. KRS, an acronym for “Knowledge Reigning Supreme”, is not only Hip Hop’s first true philosopher, as an emcee/rapper, he is considered the best live Hip Hop emcee of all time. With abilities coveringrap, reggae, spoken word, and even classical music, KRS-One reminds you as to why you fell in love with Hip Hop. With twenty published albums to his credit, KRS-One has literally written the most rhymes in Hip Hop’s history. From establishing Hip Hop as an international culture at the United Nations (2001), KRS-One has single-handedly held the history and original arts of Hip Hop together now for over two decades. In addition to lecturing at over 500 universities in the United States and publishing three ground-breaking books; KRS-One has also established the Stop The Violence Movement, influenced the creation of the “West-Coast All-Star”’ anti-gang anthem “We’re All In The Same Gang”, warned the Hip Hop community against giving up their humanity for technological advancement (H. E. A. L.—Human Education Against Lies), and has established the Temple of Hip Hop for the spiritual exploration of Hip Hop’s culture. Always a refreshing break from mainstream rap content, KRS-One delivers an intense street-poet performance that leaves any audience rethinking their approach to Hip Hop and its culture. KRS-One is a must see concert and a mandatory lecture for anyone really interested in the true essence of Hip Hop and how to successfully live the culture. Australia, classes and concerts are now in session.
KRS-One has been called: “… the conscience of Hip Hop” ROLLING STONE
“… the greatest live emcee ever”THE SOURCE
“… the spokesperson for Hip Hop”WALL STREET JOURNAL

MC's :- Slap N Tickle MC

"DOMINATE: nominated for best club night in the perth dance music awards for 2011. People have been requesting more DnB at Dominate lately so we booked one. But in true Dominate style we booked one of the hardest Perth has to offer. J Switch is a resident for Therapy Sessions Perth and has supported acts such as Limewax, Current Value, Dylan & Roybn Chaos, Panacea, SPL, Spor and more. He is also involved with Perth's Drum N' Bass crew 'Inhibit'. With a bunch Drum and Bass and Dubstep releases on various labels to back him up he is sure to tear the roof off. It is his first set at a Dominate night
ST has been playing Hardstyle sets for years, a DJ for F.O.R.C.E since 2007. He has a release on popular Australian label "Spoontech" under his belt as well as heap of international support slots as a veteran of Perth Hardstyle scene and a familar DJ for anyone that has been to a rave in the last 5 years. Tekneeqzz had his first set at Ourstyle and since made himself a name in local Hardstyle. Playing a hard edged mix of newer rough Hardstyle sounds. He was voted second in the PDMA's for "Best Hard Dance DJ" in 2010 and his first production effort was in the running for Defqon1 anthem.
Splinta is originally from Newcastle. He was the creator and member of a popular shuffle crew called the Newcastle Rockers before taking up DJing and production. He reflects this into the Hard Dance he plays with some Tech, Hard Trance and Hard Dance. Bassraiderz is a regular support act for Hard Dance/Hardstyle gigs in Melb and an established producer.
Holding an impressive list of events and international supports, JT Pushes 140bpm Tech Trance and Psytrance into his sets.
Josh Cube needs no introduction at Dominate. The resident DJ has been smashing out sets with an energy unlike anyone else. He has been picked up for numerous international supports in his first year of DJing and is recognised for being incredibly versitile.
Dominate resident and founder Cyberstruct pushes Industrial Hardcore, Crossbreed and Darkcore sounds. Maloonatic has been a resident for F.O.R.C.E since his first rave set playing the harder sets and the infamous 6 O'Clock Shock sets. Also a solid producer with a few releases under his belt. Maloonatic is a nasty Scottish Hardcore DJ with ties to the Scottish and UK Gabber scene."

[ DerrickMay ]
-== Derrick May : [Fri 27th Apr 12] ==-

DJ's :- Derrick May (USA 4hr set), Puff, Mono Lisa.

The Likes Of You presents this very special clube gig - "May's narrative is wedged into electronic music folklore. The story goes that in the mid '80s, May - also known as Rhythim is Rhythim, joined forces with Kevin Saunderson and Juan Atkins (who became known as the Belleville Three) to fashion a completely new genre of music that, today, we all take for granted. It all started in 1987 when May released Nude Photo, which helped propel the Detroit techno music scene and gradually infiltrate the European acid house mantra. In 1988, house music nirvana arrived when the Detroit native produced the ultimate record, Strings of Life - so named by house prodigy Frankie Knuckles. His production and solo recording exploits may have halted over the past decade but his legacy has rolled on throughout the years, thanks to numerous remixes, re-works and collaborations with some of the most experimental musicians going, including Depeche Mode and ABC. What makes a Derrick May DJ set so uniquely exceptional is his ability to intermingle genres, taking records of years past and making them work in today's crowded musical sphere. Take Icon, a May masterpiece, where the strings sound just as powerful and prevalent today as they did years ago. The 'classic' Derrick May noise is a finite balance between percussion-laded cascades of sound complemented with samples and melody. If you want to know what makes Derrick May special, listen to any of his mixes to discover how he inspires people to love techno for what it is - not the sub-culture, the drugs or the mystique, it's all about the music. May has performed around the globe for over two decades and honed his Transmat techno label into one of the most respected outputs in the world. A pioneer of techno, May produces Hi-Tek Soul or "George Clinton meeting Kraftwerk in an elevator." May makes techno poetry - hear him live and expect a night of unrefined emotion delivered with passion.".

[ SubZero&MCEksman ]
-== SubZero & Eksman : [Sat 5th May 12] ==-

DJ's :- Sub Zero & MC Eksman (UK), Illusiv, Dvise vs Frantik, Invictus, Blanko.
MCs :- Bear, Webbz & Seeka.

Inhibit presents this huge DnB night on a weekend with so much on phew! "This might seem too good to be true Perth... but we can assure you that this is very very real! At long long last, embarking on their first tour of Australia, we are very proud to present SUB ZERO - one of the hottest jump-up artists blowing up the scene today representing the mighty Playaz imprint...Along side him we have none other than MC EKSMAN. Which makes this possibly the most anticipated and overdue tour in Australian drum & bass history!! We have been waiting 8 long years for this moment, but now, THE WORLDS UNDISPUTED NUMBER #1 DRUM & BASS MC is coming to Perth to absolutely annihilate Villa Nightclub!
Sub Zero - aka Jake Carter, 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’. He's 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. It was 2011 that saw Sub Zero smash out his biggest track to date, ‘Poon’, nominated Best Track of the Year at the Drum&BassArena Awards. Its irresistibly dark but heavyweight style saw ‘Poon’ slammed into the set of pretty much every major DJ set of the season, as well as dominating the number 1 spots on Beatport, Drum&BassArena and Track It Down. Undeniably one of the weightiest dancefloor smashers to emerge from drum & bass in recent years, its B-side ‘Brighter Days’ smashed expectations with a soulful, deep take on the minimal roller. 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, hiss 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 Sub Zero’s next move.
MC Eksman - 2011 he still currently holds the number 1 position of best 'Lyrical MC', awarded at the National Drum and Bass awards voted by over 22 thousand people. In an extremely short time, in terms of a music career, Eksman exploded onto the scene in a way that wasn't comparable to any other talent to date. His style was like no others, His ability to write lyrics which had meaning and stood out against all others rocketed him to the top of the mc chain at a incredible pace. Starting his career back in 1996 holding down a pirate radio show every weekend with his (still partner in crime) Mc Herbzie. Eksman spent many years writing, polishing his performance and enhancing his lyrics until he felt ready to take what he had nurtured for so many years to the forefront of the scene. It was only in 2003 when he got his first real bout of recognition when he was voted ‘Best Newcomer’ at both industry favourite Knowledge Magazine awards as well as the Accelerated culture awards. These two events saw him catapult onto the scene literally taking people and places by an absolute storm. His success story is one that is made from legend as by 2004 he had gone from Newcomer to Number one where he lifted the ‘Best Lyrical MC’ for which eleven thousand people voted worldwide. Eksman went from strength to strength with the release of Drive by Car, produced by Bingo head honcho DJ Zinc. Other releases included Bad Man on Frontline Recordings, They Don’t Know on D Style Recordings, Na Blood, Roll slow and Energy to name a few. Eks continued to pave the way for dnb mcing collecting ‘Best lyrical’ and ‘Best crowd hype’ mc in 2007 which had never before been achieved by any other drum & bass MC. He also scooped 2 more awards in 2010 and 2011 again for ‘Best lyrical’ mc. As well as being an artist Eksman has broadened his empire and in the last two years he has put much focus, time and effort into his highly successful rave event ‘OVERLOAD’. Since the birth of Overload in 2009 Eks has staged many road block events in cities such as London. Birmingham, Bristol and Kent, with some of the craziest mc line ups seen to date. Along with the mcing and Parties Eks is working a lot more in the studio with some massive collaborations lined up for the future.

-== The Boat that Rocked : [Sat 12th May 12] ==-

* CANCELLED *
DJ's :- Micah, Philly Blunt, Charlie Bucket, Boggie & Jon E.

ISpy Perth was to present this wicked idea event - "Back in the 1960's the only way to hear the latest and most intense music of the times was Pirate Radio.... now in 2012 ISpy invites you aboard The Boat that Rocked! Imagine a 175ft ex cargo ship, 400 pirates dancing on 2 levels to musical collaborations 'too intense for the mainland' - So get your 1960 Rock n Roll swagger and summer of love pleasure together for Saturday May 12th 2012 and make musical babies and memeories with us and 400 other pirates at this never before seen event! From the team who brought you Resolution, Sex & the City and many more... welcome aboard!

*NOTE* Please note due to 3rd party issues outside of ISpy Perth’s control we will have to unfortunately cancel The Boat that Rocked. Late last week ISpy was notified by the boat owners that the dock which the vessel was arranged to be moored alongside was no longer available and that they did not have a dock for the boat to come alongside for the event on May 12th. As such ISpy Perth approached all Government and privately owned and operated docks in the areas of Fremantle, Henderson, Rue’s Head & Hillary’s Boat Harbour for a suitable location and unfortunately no space is available. Due to the vessels size it does not fit on the river and these are the only locations open to us. It is unfortunate as ISpy looks to create new experiences within Perth for the public and we were looking forward to beginning the first series of The Boat that Rocked. All guests will be refunded their tickets via the online Eventbrite system to their credit cards shortly. For any further information please contact info@ispyperth.com.au".

Brothers Sjoerd and Wouter Janssen (aka Walt Jenssen & Duro) are both the instigators and the originators of the harder styles of dance music. Since participating in the genesis of the movement the sibling duo have been pushing the genre further into the dance stratosphere and into the collective psyche of dance music lovers across the globe.
Accolades and honours have flowed freely for the Dutch brothers since inception, they were the first hardstyle act to record at BBC Radio 1's Essential Mix, they have featured frequently in best of lists in the publications that matter (#58 in DJ Mag Top100 in 2011) and have collaborated with the legendary Tiesto on some musical masterpieces.
Renowned for their amazing live shows, Perth once again has the chance to immerse themselves in one of the great electronic music experiences available on the global dance music circuit as Showtek bring all the energy, production and innovation they are famous for back to the country that embraced them so whole heartedly on their last visit."

Chrome Events, FORCE, DJ Factory & Gilkisons present this special 2 room club event, featuring Australia's best-known MegaMixer/Remixer...Nick Skitz. "During the very early 90's, Nick Skitz began what you may call the beginning of a phenomenal career and through sheer hard work and an unquestioned amount of talent, Nick has become one of Australia's most recognized and sort after Deejay \ Remixer \ Producer. In turn Nick Skitz has also undoubtedly created an era of Hi Nrg, Techno and Euro Dance music in Australia. His trademark remixes, megamixes and his own tracks have made Nick a household name amongst club goers. Nick's acute ear for music has also seen him become a specialist in audio mastering working with the likes of international record companies, deejay remix services and also mastering dance compilations such as Ministry of Sound & Wild compilations. Nick who is both known for his skills on the decks as much as for his talents in the studio is one of Australia's greatest dance exports. Following his success with his own track "The Ultimate" which reached Number #2 on the official U.K. Dance Chart, Nick opened a gateway to Europe for his addictive club sounds. In late 2001, Skitzmix 10 reached #9 on the mainstream ARIA Albums Chart alongside artists like Creed, Shaggy and the Bridget Jones's Diary Soundtrack. Skitz has also featured on Ministry of Sound & Wild compilations. Skitz's track "The Ultimate" has reached #2 on the dance charts in the UK. His first pop hit "Slave to the Music" reached the top 20 in Australia in November 2003 and was a cover of an original song by Twenty 4 Seven. In 2004, he joined forces with Mark Gable, lead singer of Australian rock band The Choirboys to rework their 1987 Australian hit "Run to Paradise" as a dance track. The song, billed as "Nick Skitz vs. the Choirboys", debuted in the top 20 of the Australian pop charts in July 2004 and was the 17th biggest selling dance single for 2004. The single also features a remix by Jason Nevins. Since 2006, Skitz has released 2 rock compilations called SkitzMetal and SkitzRocks featuring 80s and 90s rock originals like Quiet Riot's "Cum On Feel The Noize" and Scorpion's "Wind Of Change" and some dance remakes of glam rock hits. In July 2007, Skitz released a rock/dance version of David Lee Roth's 80s hit "Just Like Paradise". It reached #58 on the ARIA Physical Sales Chart in Australia. In October 2008, the 30th edition of SKITZMIX was released through Central Station Records. July 2011 saw the release of SKITZMIX 38, and November saw the release of SKITZMIX 39. In February 2012, the 40th edition of Skitzmix was Released. Skitzmix is the longest running Club scene CD Running in Australian History".

Located centrally at 45 Murray Street Perth (100 meters east of Ambar), Gilkisons is an amazing venue with multiple arena’s, high ceilings, mental lights and sound and what we hope to add... a SUPERCHARGED ELECTRIC ATMOSPHERE! Our aim is to provide a fresh and exhilarating clubbing experience, with dancers, performers, local, interstate and international DJ's, plus loads more surprises to regenerate that spark that has been missing from many Perth club nights. Our music policy is 100% about melodic party tunes to create the right vibe and get the crowd moving. Quality is first and foremost and all DJ's have been hand-picked to ensure we have only the very best involved. We’re putting the excitement back in clubbing, with only the finest music across multiple electronic genres including: Trance, Hard House, Hard Trance, Psy Trance, Drum & Bass, UK Hardcore, Freeform, Tech Trance, Rave / Party Breaks, J-Tek / Future Jungle & Tech Dance. - 22 charged DJs & MCs - 7 Hours of Electrifying Music - 2 Arenas of Pure Energized Vibes - 1 Supercharged Electrified Atmosphere!"...hopefully you guys will continue to support it as much as Perth did this night...WOW a near-capacity all night crowd outside, inside on both floors as ppl moved around to soak up the varied sounds from both arenas! Personally even though I had the honour of playing the first set at this new night, the usual issue of a small trickle of ppl coming into a CLUB Night (with all locals mind!) for most of the set didnt happen, literally ppl were in there early to be 'avin it large and my gosh the quite varied crowd (Mainstream clubbers, Ravers, Goths, Surfs, way too overdressed randoms etc etc) did certainly give both rooms a try at a decent listen before moving on...nice to see. Seriosuly if you didnt make this one, it was just a HUGE night socially - well done Electrified Crew!

Keeping with District tradition we have a huge range of underground bass styles and tempo’s this session, and even an extra helping of turntabalist antics. Cutting the red tape to open the night, and we mean serious cutting and juggling, is our boy 'Benny P', better hit up those squats and lunges at pump class ladies, we want those booty’s on the floor from the get go. 'Genga' steps up next to take us through some mid-tempo moombah goodness and prep the floor for the return of one of Perth’s greatest…District is proud to present the return of 'Zeke'. If you saw him last time you know this guy is a freak at cutting and juggling, and staying true to his reputation he will blow your mind again in July. One laptop, two turntables, a maschine, and a midi fighter… shits about to get real. Next up District represents when 'Philly Blunt Vs Meet Mark' kicks off the up-tempo bass end of the night. If you haven’t had enough by this point in the night then its time to ‘Get More’, fresh out of some serious yards in the studio he will have some grade ‘A’ bangers to drop. And to close out the night we have some District first timers, 'Riot Class', new to us but certainly not when it comes to underground beats, these lads are dropping some serious production that is worth checking out. As always, it’s all about the Perth talent, we have the cutters, the jugglers, the double droppers and the producers, and even the man Japan Stripes on the mic, District 6th of July".

Alpha 6 & We Like It Hard Crew presents this special club event, featuring the styles of HaRdCore, Hardstyle, Hard Trance & Hard Dance & Australia's number 1 Hardcore DJ
DJ S3RL - from Brisbane, Australia, has been writing and producing his own tracks since the year 2000. Before this well known Happy Hardcore DJ was discovered he was part of the rave scene, letting loose on the dance floor as a raver and stays close to his rave heritage even today. S3RL scored his first break at the end of 2005. When Kevin Energy and Sharkey came down under, S3RL showed them his skills on one of the many demo cd's he had and it was only weeks later that Kevin Energy got back to him with a contract ready to sign. S3RL was to release his track 'Transformers' on to vinyl under the NuEnergy Collective (NEC) label 'Relentless'. This made S3RL the first DJ in Queensland to be signed to a major hardcore label and not long after he was already mixing it up with names such as Kevin Energy, Brisk, Sharkey, Scott Brown, Neophyte and many more. Since then he has firmly secured his place in DJ Haze's label 'Excecutive Records' in Sydney, Australia as well as the NEC and has had a steady flow of releases on both labels and has had tracks featured on complilations such as 'Bonkers' and 'Masif Hardcore'. All this while showcasing his talent to a world wide audience DJing at events all around Australia and the rest of the world. Known 4 his intense stage presence and floor filling musical abilities, be sure to watch out for S3RL as he mixes up a storm and continues to keep the crowd jumping with all his future productions".

[ LimbosReunion2 ]
-== Limbo's Reunion 2 : [Fri 21 Sept 12] ==-

DJ's :- Colin Clark, JJ, Greg Packer, Craig B, Nick Alexander, Maze Marnie Kent (live House PA).

Presented by the original club crew, this huge Old Skool night returns - "The faces, the places, the spaces & the magical memories that will will never be lost in between. Come with me, dance with me.......Lets take a trip down Limbo Lane. You know in clubland it's often said that when one door closes another one opens. But in the case of 232 William St - things have never been the same......Until now....Coming to you live & direct for one night only we present the earlybird sounds of Nick Alexander's flashback FUNK, retro R&B & so so sassy UK soul from the halcyon daze of 1988-1992. Next up on the wheels of steel its DJs JJ, Colin Clark, Greg Packer, Craig B & Maze - spanning the spectrum of HOUSE, ACID, TECHNO, BALEARIC, soaring vocals & summer of love anthems.
DJ JJ - As Dj & manager of Limbo its safe to say that JJs was responsible for transforming a late night dive into a house music mecca. From Limbo a list of clubs, bars, raves, events & dances festivals as long as your arm are a record of the deep committed love of dance music in JJs life. Always a fan of the uplifting house sound, clubs like The Freezer, Aqua, Geisha to name a few have rocked to the sound of JJ. Connections nightclub has been the home for JJs distinctive twisted disco house sound for the last decade, holding court on Saturdays.
Colin Clark -Perth 1988 saw Colin start an acid house/Detroit techno night, this caught the attention of Limbo resident Roy Jopson, before long Roy offered Colin a Limbo residency. Known for his 6hr sets Colin joined forces with Wayne Lewis on Fridays playing underground US garage & house & Saturdays along side Roy Jopson & Guy Ornadel playing acid, techno, Balearic, early ital house & UK soul. The early nineties saw Colin in high demand playing at Elevation raves, Dance Delerium, G.O.D parties, Network, The Freezer & the Site to name a few. After returning to the UK it wasn't long before he was behind the decks again with residencies at Darkwerks in Leeds, Perfect & F&F in Carlisle & a regular guest DJ on Saturdays at Back to Basics pre club bar in Leeds.
Greg Packer - DJ & producer Greg packer began dj-ing in the summer of 1989 whist still living in Northampton England , due to an intense passion for collecting vinyl (over 1000 records by 1989) and going through the whole breakdance hip hop era from the early 80’s he decided to take things to the next level and purchase some decks and a mixer. Greg was mixing hip hop mainly at first but was also collecting early house and soul records as well, he then emigrated to Australia with his family shortly after and entered the west Australian dmc’s in 1991 . Greg came first place and held the title of west Australian mixing champ for 2 years in a row after defending his title again in 1992. Greg started to dj in perth nightclubs in 1990 mixing early house and techno with his hip hop and early breaks , he followed through the years constantly sticking to his guns and always playing the sound of uk hardcore/breakbeat and saw it through the jungle / ragga /darkside / jump up era to the now sounds of drum & bass. Greg took time out in the mid 90’s to travel back to England and was fortunate to play at events such as ‘Dance Planet’ alongside big DJ’s such as carl cox & slipmatt. Greg then returned to perth and collected many awards at the west Australian dance music awards such as ‘ best rave DJ 1994 , best mixing DJ 1995 , best drum & bass DJ 1996 and every year until 2007’ making a total of 11 years Best DnB Dj at the Perth PDMA’s. Greg was also West Australia’s first dj to play drum & bass and the first Dj to mix DnB live on Australia’s nationwide radio station JJJ fm back in '94. Greg also played at Perth’s first ever rave / club events supporting the first visting internationals to be imported to Australia , this was in 1991 when greg supported dj’s grooverider , sasha , carl cox , LTJ Bukem , prodigy on there first ever Australian tours. He's held numerous residencies and played hundreds of guest spots over the years and supported practically every drum & bass DJ that visits perth. He also toured the UK & Europe on numerous occasions playing at clubs in London such as ‘The End , Fabric & Herbal’ including LTJ Bukem’s legendary progression sessions and events around central England including ( Banbury , Leamington Spa & Northampton.
Nick Alexander - Few would disagree that Nick helped change the face of black music from 88 -2004. He released a series of illegal mix CDs in the early nineties which very nearly put him inside, along with six years broadcasting on Nova 93.7 with the show "Urban Essentials" Nick was also responsible for the legendary "Lick Party" series that showcased the sound of R&B to the masses. Still working as a club DJ at venues such as Gold Bar/Malt & Raffles sunday session I think its fair to say that this is a man who earned his place alongside some of Perths finest.
Craig B - After getting his break supporting Simon "Bassline" Smith at The Mix Club in 1990 then landing a few more gigs in 90/91. He established himself as a DJ in Manchesters Club & Rave scene in 1992. Between 92 -97 he played at clubs & events all over the UK & abroad before moving to Perth, where he's played for promoters such as Loaded Dice & ONE.AM as well as running his own successful Phrenetic Beats nights.
The smiles, the friendships, the music, the memories........Roy Jopson (RIP), Guy Ornadel, Dave Jackson, Adil Bux, Wayne Lewis - FOREVER IN DA HOUSE."

The Pitcher (NL) - "aka Michel Pollen - Producer & Luc van Veghel - DJ) Their fellow producers call his music "tastemaking" and "revolutionary", as The Pitcher is one of Fusion's big league artists. With one of the Donkey Rollers producers at the helm, The Pitcher has already scored a number of hits, such as the classic "Pump It Loud" and "I Just Can't Stop", later covered by the German techno band Scooter. In 2011 Luc van Veghel's debut-album "Smack" won the Hard Dance Award for best artist album. The large success of his first album has proven he is one of the strong forces within hardstyle these days. What makes The Pitcher different from othes hardstyle DJ's is his versatility. The Pitcher KNOWS how to capture the audience, as he so effortlessly proved with his legendary Mainstage Defqon 1 2012 set (click link to watch/listen). A master when it comes to winning over the crowd, he never forgets what it's all about: "ENJOY THE MUSIC!" is his motto.

His debut album on Ad Noiseam “Like a Hurricane Made of Zombies” further demonstrated his genre blending hybrid of drum&bass&step&core (as he puts it). Never one to pigeon hole his sound beyond describing it as a “Big Fuck Off Rave”, this seminal album firmly reinstated his musical intentions. His second album on Ad Noiseam, “Train Wreck Magnetism” featured remixes from some of his idols and peers, (Mike Paradinas, Hecq,and Drumcorps *another Anger exclusive Artist), alongside collaborations and solo tracks. This album confirmed the eternal fan boy in him and was noted as one of the best albums “for grinding your teeth to at night”. Result! With other releases on Anticlone, Peace Off, Death$ucker, Lost requency, Nekrolog1K, Rebelscum, and Sustained, he has firmly got the backing of the most notable labels in the scene. With eyes firmly set on which labels he wants to work with in the future, you can be sure of more big releases, on big labels, delivering yet more - Prepare yourself for The Teknoist and the most intense launch party of 2012."

So we’ve got 22 of Perth’s best underground DJs rocking 2 stages plus a very special guest from Melbourne: Chris Dynasty. On top of that entry is half price for the first hour and we’re opening an hour early, so get down between 9 and 10pm and get to see 22 locals and 1 interstate DJ for $5. We’ll be filling the place with balloons and we’ll also have some other special birthday surprises on the night. If you were at our 1st birthday party you know that it was pretty off the hook. This year we’re stepping things up a notch at the last Dominate of 2012!"
See you there!
