As announced a few weeks ago, Imani and Bootie Brown of The Pharcyde are bringing their original, idiosyncratic style of hip hop back to Australia this August to celebrate 20 years of dedicated Pharcyde delivery! They have handpicked two very talented personalities to join them for this tour that will each bring a unique element to this special audio/visual performance.
Los Angeles native, producer Computer Jay may most recently be known for being 1/3 of Master Blazter with Dám Funk and the Deer. His collaborative efforts also span to works with The Pharcyde, Shafiq Husayn, and Gaslamp Killer to name a few. Jay is currently gearing up for the solo release of his four-part debut album, "Savage Planet Discotheque". Vol.1 is set to release July 31st, on his own imprint, "Weird Science". To commemorate this, Jay will be incorporating a special performance on keys and drum machine, combining sounds of Dusty Analog Synths, 8 Bit Crunch, and Intergalactic Funk; often using one of a kind circuit bent instruments of his own creation. Computer Jay will also be producing a very special visual show to compliment The Pharcyde’s performance.

The Pharcyde’s official tour DJ for Australia and New Zealand is none other than DJ Vickone – a native of Armenia who has reached cult-status in his new home of Los Angeles. He is the official DJ for the Los Angeles Kings and the only DJ who could put it down on The Game’s 2008 release “Game’s Pain”. Opening for major acts like Kanye West, Jay-Z, T.I., Ne-Yo and The Game, as well as DJing the NBA Finals for the Los Angeles Lakers in 2008, it is hard to believe that DJ Vickone’s start was a humble one. From a college mixtape DJ to a highly respected employee & DJ at Power 106, Los Angeles premier urban radio station.
