Legendary hip hop master Steinski who changed the face of hip hop as we know it, alongside New York neighbour, hip hop hobo and new blood DJ Signify will be there to represent. Then pulled from the pack of London's most respected underground, mash-up kings and heroes of the good groove The Nextmen, with their Bristol buddy, arguably the best drum'n'bass and cross-genre MC in the globe, the double-timing firecracker himself, Dynamite MC will be in full effect. Join this with the future soul, funk and jazz of the Quantic Soul Orchestra, performing with local pleasure purveyors The Bamboos, just to warm the spirit and those dancing feet. Top that off with live jazz vocalist Alice Russell, who couldn't be hotter right now and will no doubt sizzle our stage, and jazzbop musicologist and founder of the movement, Russ Dewbury himself to boot!
The huge lineup of artists will all be playing both nights, and the event kicks off early at 8pm. Presale Tickets are $50 from Gaslight, Polyester, Cram, Northside, Central Station, The Prince Public Bar, The Prince Booking Line 03 9536 1168 and www.sjooshi.com.
