Thursday 29 May – Hi-Jak @ eFiftyFive


Another great local night at eFiftyFive featuring Kayhat, U-Wish and Able 8 as DJs from 8pm-1am, which will leave you time to get the tram home.

Great chemistry between the three of us was shown last time in a packed-out and cosy venue, which will be getting even cosier now that it’s coming up to Melbourne winter.

Get down into the basement for a nice, sloppy Thursday evening on a nice, sloppy couch with some nice, sloppy beer and toasties, whilst you and your friends get nice and sloppy.

8pm-1am. eFIftyFive, 55 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne CBD. Free!

Thursday 27 February – Hi-Jak feat. Kayhat + U-Wish + Able8 @e55


Come along this Thursday evening to catch Able8, U-Wish and myself (Kayhat) play at eFiftyFive for a session of beats that are right on the pulse of where it’s at right now.

I have to say that it’s always fun playing with two guys that have become very close to me as workmates and friends over the last couple of years, and all of us are really passionate about our scene in Melbourne. It’s something we believe in enough to be out night after night as three guys who are out all the time.

Why is this night different to other nights? Why would you want to see us play yet again? I’ll tell you why plain and simple without embellishment.

When us three get together, some magic happens. We all come from similar places, yet we still contrast each other in a really positive blend. Last time we got together at eFIftyFive, we had everyone engaged to our sound platter from start to finish.

Do you detect a little bit of bias in this article? Of course. Can any journalist who does things on a voluntary basis be impartial? I love what I do, and it’s what I am in essence. We’re all about love for our beats community, and we’ll show you this love when we combine like Voltron for you.

Hope to see you there, kids, much love. We fucking represent.

8pm-1am. eFiftyFive, Basement Level, 55 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne CBD. Free!
