Dust Tones presents: Phatchance, Coptic Soldier & Miriam Waks, Skryptcha,Dutch, DJ KoolAde & Mike Who

This Friday 9th April 2010

Beach Rd Hotel Bondi (71 Beach Rd)

Free Entry, 8pm-12am

Skryptcha (Obese Records)

Taking his first lyrical strides in 2003, Skryptcha is blessed by the gifts of a musical family; a grandfather who spent the 60’s distilling in Sydney’s jazz movement and a concert pianist grandmother who became Australia’s first entrant into New York’s prestigious Julliard school of music, his instrumentally-charged upbringing laid the foundations for a distinct vocal talent that would ultimately evolve into his debut EP, Left to Write. Having tested his ability on several guest appearances (including spending studio time with the legendary Def Wish Cast) and on stage with Scott Burns, 2buck and new labelmates Dialectrix, Thundamentals and Pegz, Left to Write is the young MC’s initial solo foray into the recorded realm, an occasion sparked by the introduction to maestro/producer Chasm by label boss Pegz. Skryptcha’s youthful energy on record and on stage provides the urgency for his borderless musical tastes.

Coptic Soldier & Miriam Waks

Its been a while since I listened to Aussie Hip Hop but even after even a few tracks into the ‘Coptic Soldier & Miriam Waks’ EP ‘The Sound of Wings’ I have to say..I was pretty impressed..

The release is packed with crafty lyrics, layered harmonies & epic instrumentation & is loads more ‘musical’ to what I had been used to hearing from home grown Hip Hop. Featuring elements of Soul, Funk & Rock it is well worth checking out if your into Hip Hop that sounds like its made by musicians..

Also.. as for the live show I been hearing so much about, well… a free show this Friday @ Sydneys Hip Hop institution Dust Tones @ the Beach Rd Hotel cant be missed!

Check out a few tunes that caught my ear:

Boom Monk Ben (Solid Steel, UK)

Armed with Serato, two quick hands and the most diverse crate of dance floor fillers you’ve heard, the Boom Monk has developed a sound and style that is undoubtedly his own. Boom Monk Ben continues to be booked for some of the biggest and best electronic music events around and as his reputation grows the list of suitors keeps expanding. A frenzied fanatic of all things bass, the Boom Monk leaves no stone unturned and no sound unheard in his quest for dancefloor devastation. From hip hop, dancehall, funk and break beats to house, funky, electro, dubstep and drum and bass, as long as it makes him, us and you move on the floor then it will get put the through the blender in his inimitable style. The mighty Ninja Tune have been impressed enough to approach Ben to provide a series of ‘Boom Monk Zen’ mixes for their world famous Solid Steel radio show, which is broadcast in 30 countries world wide.

Cheeba (Ninja Tune, UK) – A/V set

Peel back your ears, stick matchsticks in your eyes, set your jaw to ‘drop’… Bristol’s, Detective of Perspective, DJ Cheeba is plugged in and here to turn the tables. With his trademark slick blend of classic breaks, hip-hop, electronica, rock, kid’s records, d&b, and in fact everything in between and beyond, Cheeba has the unrivaled technical ability, knowledge and humour to pull it all together like no one else. In 2008 Cheeba won the coveted ‘Solid Steel Mix of The Year’ with his, highly regarded, genre twisting mixtape ‘The Case of The missing Records’ and has since been invited to officially join the Solid Steel family alongside Ninja Tune legends such as Coldcut and DJ Food. Using standard turntables and Serato Video SL to enable video controlled by real vinyl records, Cheeba now has brought scratching and juggling both sounds and pictures into the mix with additional camera feeds and special FX for stunning live results.
