After an absolutely amazing effort by Sydney last weekend, with several sold out events from all reports an amazing mini festival style event by Motorik. Seeing as it was the first weekend of the year and most people were still away/in recovery, it is absolutely amazing to see! Things certainly aren’t slowing down this weekend either, with everything from house to trap covered for your listening pleasures. Lets get this list kicking then!

FRIDAY

ASTRAL People and WON TON bring life into The Hudson Ballroom with Father(USA/Awful Records). This American hip hop icon has been recognised and praised for a long while now for his work, having produced too many tracks to even list, outside of his own projects. His flow is fresh and witty, giving the crowd some serious attitude for their night. It’s looking like it will be a sell out event, so don’t miss out on this very low capacity event.

Deep Sea Arcade are doing a very special show down in the El Topo Basement. This one is most definitely for all the live music enthusiasts out there. Deep Sea Arcade have been around for quite a while now, playing some amazing shows and putting out even better music. Their recent release ‘Learning To Fly’ has been taking over radio waves and getting HUGE traction everywhere. Get down nice and early for this not to miss show in Bondi.
