The UNKLE full live production rolls into town
With the rain clouds looming above, it looked set to become another Future Music Festival but in a stroke of luck, the girls (and guys) that just had their “hair done-did” didnt have to fret short of a couple sprinkles through out the day.
On the performance side it was what was to be expected, if you grew up listening to 80s and 90s hiphop you will be forgiven if you were a little underwhelmed. If however your version of “ol skool” is Nelly’s first album then you more than likely had the “time of your life”!
A little something extra for the sneakerheads out there, a few artists were definitely brought their A game on the day.
The Game rockin the Bordeaux J7′s – released that day
Nelly sporting JP5′s – supposedly released some time this month

and Busta Rhymes with his usual Goa/Foam Dome fare
It’s been quite some time since I’ve pointed a camera at a car that wasn’t a toy :p but with my little bro steadily pouring money into his Mitsubishi Evo Lancer to make it a fire breathing war machine, I guess it was inevitable.
Here are some sample shots from the shoot.
It seems what Mother Nature spared on Good Vibes this year, she lashed it on Future. Showers and rain the week prior as well as on the day left the venue more a boggy mess than anything that resembled a racecourse! Thankfully the music and production on display surpassed previous years (and festivals) with highlights of the day coming from industry forefathers like Leftfield, Chemical Brothers and Plastikman.
Keep an eye out for a bumper issue and full festival recap and our exclusive photos in this week’s 3D World Magazine.

Fictitious “Tingly” campaign for a gift to my special little lady (:
Teneriffe, the suburb, not Newstead you know? :p
Well they had a little shindig on the weekend which coincided with commercial dance favourites Nova FM’s 5th birthday.
Market stalls and a bunch of live bands and DJ’s including Blue Juice, Amy Meredith, Lowrider and Stan Walker.
Shapeshifter touring their new album “The system is a vampire” and we’re definitely diggin the new stuff! Still has those chilled airy moments but there’s also plenty of new bangers to get you air punching!
Dexter cuts up the proverbial on his landmark 20 years in the biz tour
Space Invadas are Katalyst and Steve Spacek with a funked out Gnarls Barkley kind of sound.. and a penchant for the Darkside. Supported by Koolism.
For those that don’t know, The Slew is made up of turntable extraordinaires, Kid Koala and Dynomite D and ex-Wolfmother members on bass and drum duty. Together they form what could only be described as head banging hiphop. Its what Mike Shinoda wishes Linkin Park would be like!
The live show is just nuts, heaps of energy and you can tell the guys are having a blast up there! Jump on to youtube.com to see them in action.
