Dub Temple records put out their inaugural podcast featuring guest mixes from Arku (White Rhino) and Walrii (Dank Morass), hosted by Phoebe Baker. Walrii’s mix features an unreleased original production from the man himself.
Travelling to Vietnam, the home of his grandparents, Onra went on a serious digging mission which resulted in an album called Chinoiseries, crafted entirely from samples from Vietnamese and Chinese vinyl gather on the journey.
Turning direction again, Onra dropped his opus Long Distance in 2010, tapping into the sounds of 80s boogie, modern soul and funk with a full length composed entirely on the MPC1000.
Parisian beatmaker Onra (Arnaud Bernard) hits Brisbane on Thursday November 10 with a live show at Barsoma.
Once again, it’s the time of month for submersion, with the October installment of SCUBA TANK. As usual, presented by Dank Morass and White Rhino crews, it will entail only the finest in progressive and soothing sounds. The Tank’s new home at 320 in Spring Hill allows us to be liberal with sonics and free party vibes for all the people who appreciate it!
FREE as always this Wednesday October 7, SCUBA TANK will be boasting international steez from the one known as DJ Ripley. All the way from San Fransico, she digs deep to bring forth the unheard sounds and mixing skills to the Brisbane shores.
Dj Ripley has been tearing up dancefloors across North America and Europe for 12 years, in town squares, warehouses, ships, clubs, squats, community centers and activist spaces. Her genre-smashing sets build audiences into heaving monuments unified by dopeness. She has released mixes on the Death$ucker [http://www.deathsucker.org/] label, on Modyfier-modifying, on Spannered.org, Mashit.com, and on her own blog http://djripley.blogspot.com. She recently wrapped up 6 months living and working in Jamaica, where she was djing and researching copyright law and creative practice.
Along with this very special guest, the usual high quality selectors from Brisbane’s own bowels will never fail to sort the masses out with healing music.
White Rhino’s Arku and Dank Morass’ Danck and Walrii will lovingly choose a forward thinking, internationally cutting edge selection of global bass music, roots and soul progressions.
Live visuals and ambience provided by good friends and fine artists Cornish and Micro Matic. They will be manipulating pixels like oreo cookie dough, sporadically seen in Brisbane.
No fooling – Walrii and Arku return to the West End for another entry in their monthly night of sub-aquatic beats at the Rumpus Room. The last one was hype on a Wednesday night, and episode two is shaping up to be even bigger. Surprise guests are sure to be digging deep in their crates for rarely-heard gems that will soothe your mid-week woes.
Tonight, the crews that brought Flying Lotus, Hudson Mohawke, Joker and The Bug to Brisbane, splash out with some subaqueous downtempo at West End’s Rumpus Room. Expect sideways dub, sticky illstep and crooked hip hop from all selectors in a very relaxed midweek environment.
White Rhino & Dank Morass present Scuba Tank with Arku and Lone Pariah (White Rhino) and Walrii, Swob and Danck (Dank Morass), The Rumpus Room, Boundary Street, West End. Free entry from7pm on the first Wednesday of the month.
