Phetsta’s Farewell Ft. Doctor Werewolf @Chinese Laundry Friday 21st of February*
Over the course of his near decade long career, Phetsta has made a name for himself as one of the leading drum and bass exports this country has. Although he has incorporated the sounds of dub-step, electro house and hip hop into his tracks, it is the UK drum and bass style that has snatched him praise from the likes of Richard Kingsmill, Nina Las Vegas and Zane Lowe (amongst others). With this being his final show in Australia before he high tails it for the UK there is no doubt as to whether you should attend. With supports from Doctor Werewolf, Empress Yoy, Kyphosis, Choosi, Major Roar, Coda and Lady Verve, it will be a loose night for the D’n’B fans out there, leaving the bass pounding in your chest for days to follow.
Solarium Ft. Hubert Clarke Jr @Goodgod Small Club Thursday 20th of February
Since it’s opening, Goodgod Small Club has become a central spot for some of the best and most interesting Dj’s and producers this city/country has to offer. Their free Thursday night session, Solarium, is a great place to catch the up and comers, and this week is a real good un’. Beat maker Hubert Clarke Jr mixes Jazz and Hip Hop with clever looping to create some of the most badass tracks you’re likely to hear! His song “NuTT Juice” is proof that sax is back, so get down to Goodgod for a quality free gig featuring the ever entertaining Solarium DJs alongside the headliner.
DJ Yoda @ Upstairs at The Beresford Thursday 20th of February
