Tes La Rok hits VOID for his second Sydney appearance on Friday November 13th. It will be almost a year to the day since Tes La Rok smashed the Phoenix Bar to a full house of punters with his bass heavy reggae influenced take on the Dubstep sound. A year has passed and Tes’ standing has grown immensely, reinforcing him as one Dubstep’s best DJ’s and producers.
In support we have one of Perth’s best DJ’s, Rekab. A regular on all Perth’s Dubstep events, Rekab brings his unique jump up and dancefloor styles to Void for the first time. We welcome back Mark Pritchard who returns after a massive European tour and will be armed with the freshest of fresh dubs from all the big players. Deepcycle is back too after tearing up VOID a few weeks back at the Sydney showcase. Void residents Paul Fraser round off a cracking all round line-up.
