* Easy Now | Queen's Birthday Eve *
We all know the Easy Now formula: Sunday + Reggae + Beer Garden = Niceness Now imagine you didn't have to work on Monday, would you want a bigger and better version of your favourite Sunday session? We thought so... Easy Now Recordings, Scarlett Vogue Productions and The Fitzroy Beer Garden have brought together Melbourne's Reggae Mashup Specialists, a Super Funky Kiwi and a Local Celebrity Selector to ensure this afternoon session turns into a proper party. Expect to hear your favourite 'golden era' hip hop tunes with a rocksteady twist, those 'hands in the air' joints will be flipped and sizzled like a hot summer BBQ. There will be dancehall and breakbeats. There will be jerk chicken and plenty of Coopers beer. There will be big vibes... Easy Now All Stars: Tom Showtime DJ Maars Agent 86 Plus Special Guests: Mr Feet (NZ) Andre Le Vogue Sunday June 7th / 5 till Late *DJ MAARS (BOOTY FRUIT) With his roots in bass heavy, dub-wise party music, Maars first reached for the turntables and mixer in sunny Southsea, UK. Quickly rising up through the underground scene, he gained several club night residencies, seeing him share stages with the likes of David Rodigan, Ms Dynamite, JFB, DJ Fresh, Subfocus and Jaguar Skills. It was there he developed a great love for party rocking bootlegs, drawing influences from mash-up maestro's Jstar, Shepdog and Mr Benn. It wasn't until 2010 he started producing music, uniquely fusing reggae, dancehall, funk and classic hip hop, helping him gain worldwide interest from DJ's, record labels and party people alike. It was soon after this he grabbed the attention of Booty Fruit Records, helping him be part of three E.P's, all of which reaching No.1 in the Juno charts. With several exciting new releases and collaborations in the pipeline, he has had the chance to play multiple party rocking sets at some major festivals over the summer, including the legendary Shambala Festival, and Brisfest in Bristol. Being known for his genre-mashing, booty shakin', floor filling sets, he is currently traveling around the globe, bringing his unique brand of reggae tinged musical mischief... SOUNDCLOUD *AGENT 86 (Lightspeed Recordings In true block-party style, Agent 86 plays Hip-Hop, House, Techno, Rock, Electro, Pop, Breaks, Disco, New Wave, Funk, R&B, and just about anything and everything in-between and outside of the box. His extensive musical palette has led him to share the stage with the likes of James Brown, DJ Shadow, Moloko, Bookashade, Jeff Mills, Gangstarr, Soul II Soul, Peaches, and countless others. Versatile, humble, a skilled technician and (more importantly) a true lover of music, Agent 86 deserves all the plaudits thrown his way. He makes the difficult seem easy, and does it with a joie de vivre not often seen in an industry veteran. BALANCE - ELECTRIC_04 is a perfect snapshot of his skills, and it's most definitely party time! *TOM SHOWTIME (Breakbeat Paradise/Booty Fruit) "Tom Showtime is a man of many guises. DJ. Producer. Remixer. Saxophonist. Gramophone Enthusiast. From Be-Bop to Breakbeat and everything in between, Tom's passion for music is paralleled only by his legendary (some would say mythical) enjoyment of watermelon, coffee and cricket. That's just how he rolls... The list of achievements is coming thick and fast for one of the scene's true all rounders, having supported international acts such as A.Skillz, The Nextmen, Scratch Perverts, Bonobo and Mark Rae. In between multiple DJ residencies across then city, Tom is still as prolific as ever in the studio, releasing his critically acclaimed debut album The Jam Thief as well as numerous EPs and the 'Your Word Against Mine' series of bootlegs. Signed to Breakbeat Paradise Recordings and with a #1 release on the Juno Download Best Selling Chart (The Chippa Irie EP / Booty Fruit) Melbourne's own purveyor of fine funk is in demand and on the rise... MR FEET (NZ) Fresh of the boat from NZ! Mr.Feet brings some classic cuts and blends with hip hop, reggae, funk, and soul elements. Supported legends such as: De La Soul, Masta Ace, The Nextmen, DJ Yoda, Scratch Perverts, A.Skillz and many more... ANDRE LE VOGUE A universal DJ/producer who crosses many different boundaries of musical flavours. Being influenced by many different genres of music and also playing drums/percussion in many bands, it wasn't until the summer of 97 where he started delving more into electronic music, DJing and holding residencies in bars and clubs around Melbourne and Fitzroy and experimenting with different mediums and sounds right across the electronic spectrum........ and still doing so today.
