Get your sun glasses and best imitation captain’s hat ready as we are setting sail this time with a man who’s portfolio contains 8 Global Underground and 2 Renaissance compilations on top of 2011’s Balance mix. He is head of A&R for Hope Recordings and can boast of being the official tour DJ for Massive Attack in the mid-nineties, as well as being the resident DJ for the legendary Cream nightclub. Yes, they don’t get much bigger than Nick Warren! Also included on the lineup is Melbourne’s favorite superstar DJ Anthony Pappa who will be playing his first headline show for Darkbeat in 10 months (and also his first Australian show for 2014). No need to tell you what the man can do as his skills are well documented. Joining Anthony and Nick will be Sean Quinn and Kasey Taylor, legends in their own right and 2 artists that you know will bring their A-game every time they perform. That main room by itself is worth the price of admission, but we decided that we can make this even more special.
On to the side room then… and maybe sit down for this one. Back in the early 00’s Progressive Breaks and House ruled the scene in Melbourne, and we’ve decided the time is right to showcase some of the biggest local heroes from that scene in the MELBOURNE BREAKS LEGENDS ROOM. On the night we will have PURE breaks sets from the likes of:
Jamie Stevens doing an Infusion tribute set!
Danny Bonnici playing a very RARE Nubreed showcase set!
Luke Chable special classic breaks set!
Phil K - the originator and grandmaster of the original Melbourne breaks sound!
Ok, you may go ahead and pick up your jaw from the floor! This is the first time in years that these artists have re-visited their back catalogue so this is an extremely rare treat for everyone who has a soft spot for the golden years of breaks! There really isn’t anything more we can say. This party is going to one of a kind and getting all these amazing artists on board a ship is definitely a world first and not to be missed! You’ve been warmed – this is going to sell out!
