One half of Digital Mystikz (DMZ) – Coki – is set to hit Brown Alley on Friday.
For those of you who don’t know, DMZ were part of the group of pioneers who founded the original dubstep movement, and participated regularly in the ground-breaking FWD» nights with such other artists as Kode9, Skream and Benga. Coki, Mala (the other half of DMZ), and most of these artists have gone on to receive worldwide acclaim as the fathers of dubstep.
This show has strong local support from Melbourne’s DJs banding together under Stepz – Sound Evolution, as many undisclosed obstacles came up to threaten the event. It’s a tribute to the fortitude and resiliance that this show is going ahead, as financial backing and sheer distance often presents itself as an immovable object in the way of promoters who do it for the love.
True grass-roots activation has happened to bring this special one to you, and is supported by hands-on DJs Able8, Baddums, Tommy Flowers, Richard Colvaen, SK x Titus 12, Jordan, Bevin Campbell, Dub Koala, Nemesis and Noceur.
There will be no tickets for this event, and all entry is strictly via door, so get in early to avoid queues and/or missing out altogether for this niche international legend. This will be vintage dubstep at its finest.
Starts 10pm. Brown Alley, 585 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne CBD. $25.
