Here’s one for the drum and bass heads of Melbourne this Saturday.
Optiv and BTK have been releasing tracks together since 2011 on labels like Demand Records and Dutty Audio, and in 2012 released a thirteen-track album on Virus Recordings entitled Dirty Tricks. Their beats are no-nonsense DnB, in the style of Ed Rush and Optical.
If that wasn’t enough, stauch neurofunk flower Nocturnal brings some more of the dark, nitty-gritty stuff from the UK as well. He’s appeared on such legendary DnB labels as Metalheadz and Commercial Suicide. Drum and bass Melbourne’s favourite son and head of the Broken Beat Assault crew Safire is set to make a show too.
Other acts include Degeneration, Altruism, Finna b2b Safire, Mitch, Incognito and Keefves.
Starts 10:30pm. Roxanne, 2 Coverlid Place, Melbourne CBD. $30/33.80
