We just can’t get enough of Aquasky! Whilst they are renowned as breakbeat legends and frequent visitors to Australia, don’t be fooled into thinking that Aquasky are on their way out…in fact they’re going up, way up!
Having blown the roof off at the Hordern at the first 360 with Masterblaster, the trio consisting of Kieron Bailey, Dave Wallace and Brent Newitt celebrated 10 years of being one of the most proactive, daring and innovative breakbeat acts in music by returning to our shores in 2006.
This year they are back and they’re ready to rock, with 10 tour dates across Australia and New Zealand in promotion of their brand new LP This Way Up.
Aquasky have had a career that many acts in breakbeat could only have dreamed of, having notched up countless releases on some of dance music’s most respected labels and collaborated with the likes of Freq Nasty, The Breakfastaz, Meat Katie and Sinden.
The trio started working on music together way back in ’95 and originally rose to prominence as drum & bass producers. After a few albums, it was their befriending of nu-skool breaks pioneer Adam Freeland in 2000 that ultimately saw them drop their BPM and embrace the world of breakbeat. 12 years later, Aquasky have released more tracks and remixes than any other breakbeat producer, and so it’s safe to say that breakbeat fans all around the world are more than thankful for their decision to ditch d n b!
There’s no slowing down for these Bournemouth lads in 2007, with the release of their 8th album Ultimate Breaks and Beats imminent and extensive tours around the world planned!
And just to make it extra special this time around, these Passenger label owners have decided to invite friends and fellow collaborators from the new LP Nick Thayer and Dopamine to join them on selected dates across Australia and New Zealand to provide the ultimate This Way Up experience!
