Pop quiz! So you’ve got a funk night and everybody’s played there. You wanna keep it fresh for the people every month and you know the insane amount of talent in your city. What do you do? This is how we keep it fresh.
Derek Madcap (AUS)
We are mighty blessed to have Derek Madcap; DJ, turntablist promoter and pioneer of the Adelaide and Austalian hip-hop scene. Read his full bio on the event wall below and catch him on the 2nd floor in an era crossing, genre bending trip of hip-hop, boogie and nu-disco.
Funk Bast*rd (Darker Than Wax) X My Hero (Asheville, NC. USA)
Funk Bastard is Dean Chew; waxmeister, baller and co-label owner of Darker Than Wax (with producer, Kaye). My Hero is Jordan Bates; landscape architect by day, crate digger by night and he’s also really tall.
We’re putting these 2 together on a back-to-back on 2 decks. There will be mayhem and lots of sweaty disco dancing. Perfect.
The Mighty Mighty (live)
Pushin’On’s house band has been busy in the lab the past 2 months. Busy with songwriting for their upcoming EP slated for a late 2012 / early 2013 release. Tonight, you get a first listen of 2 songs from that EP.
You’ll also hear hot favourites from their cover repertoire with new additions from a recent addiction to Northern Soul stompers. Watch out for a reworked classic from Eskew Reeder and a cover of a feel-good jam from Nicole Willis & the Soul Investigators.
Rounding off the musical trip are the Pushin’On residents. For the past 6 years, they’ve kept you on the dancefloor and made you wake up on many Saturday mornings with aching feet and sore heads. Tonight won’t be any different.
