Future returned to its original home this year, while it was skeptical that would also be a return of the torrential rain and sloppy conditions of old it was the complete opposite with the festival gods smiling down with perfect weather. Production was upped with plenty of confetti and CO2 cannons, pyrotechnics and lighting along with an updated stage layout. All in all another epic day on the field.

045 - cover

It’s all happening this week, we’re taking over the mag! Ok so it wont change to a comic format with reviews on sneakers, toys and watches but we do put more of our grubby finger prints over it than usual starting with the front cover shot of The Cairos as well as the nabbing those harping groovers The Flumes for “The Guide” section cover, and finally we head out to Ellement Lounge for a drum and bass double header with half of New Zealand outfit, The Upbeats and reunited live DnB dynamic duo, Silent Shadow! Highlight photos of that gig below.

On top of all that The Music mag has launched a new app for iOS and Android and is already one of the top three apps for gig guides!

Check it all out in this week’s issue of The Music (Brisbane) #045.

Get it FREE from all the usual street press outlets, read current and back issues online @ The Music magazine – Brisbane or download the app from iTunes and Android.

Blahfest once again rose to the occasion and delivered a quality festival minus all the usual qualms associated with large gatherings of “music lovers”.

Over abundance of bad dubstep (is there even any that’s good?? ;p ) aside, stand out sets were easily marked by A.Skillz and LTJ Bukem.

Check out the full gallery – Blah blah blah Festival 2011 photos

Sound issues aside, DnB stalewart Friction smashes out a rockin set for the Queen’s biffy.

Whoa! What a week! Dame Reggaeton kicked things off with a HUGE turn out, nothing says party like having a day off the following day!
Mr. Mos Def followed things up with what can be described as a charming performance of forward thinking hiphop. And finally Andy C tore the Monastery (of all places!) a new one with a balls out set of killer DnB. I don’t know about anyone else but I need a lie down!

Check out the photos!

With my recently hectic schedule, it’s been a while since I’ve hit up a DnB party and that could be why DnB tends to mean debauchery and bass!
So of course mayhem and craziness ensued and good times were had by all!

Down to a one man band but he’s still kickin it like a full team!
