Melbourne’s first ever floating block party Boats, Rhymes & Life. Jump around to bangin’ beats and sure fire rhymes over 2 levels aboard the good ship Victoria Star.
Headlining the top deck is Mantra whose instant classic Got Me Wrong has become part of everyone’s play list over the last few months. Mantra will be rocking the boat with his crew Bam Bam and DJ Wasabi.
We also have DJ/Producer extraordinaire Nick Thayer headlining the lower deck. He has worked with some legendary international artists such as A Skillz and DJ Yoda on seminal labels like Bomb Strikes, Insane Bangers, Southern Fried and Hot Cakes. We think Nick adds a nice twist to the party.
We’re also super excited to have The Psyde Projects on board who are fresh from supporting Pete Rock! MC’s D-Fro, ILResponce and their DJ Mr. Moonshine are purveyors of that super funky golden era style hip hop. Their album Welcome To Boomtown is a must, if you love that old school party style hip hop.
Then there’s the super fresh DJ line-up… DJ Perplex, two-time Redbull Threestyle Australian Champion and three-time Australian DMC champion. A true turntable technician and chief party rocker. It doesn’t stop there, DJ Flagrant who recently won the Victorian heat of the Redbull Threestyle comp is on hand to make the party bounce. Did we mention sneaker freaker and superstar ‘she-jay’ M.A.F.I.A will also be dropping some serious heat?
DJ Prequel in the house! Having supported hip hop legends such as MF Doom, De La Soul, Odd Future and Grand Wizard Theodore you know Prequel will have the dancefloor heaving.
Zack Rampage is also on deck, you may have heard him spinning old school hip hop across the airwaves on PBS every Friday afternoon. Finally we have Claymore 74 who has been killing it, at the Fabulous Funk parties with The Soul City Sound System. Fat beats and a killer line-up on a boat? Hell yeah!
And remember what happens at sea, stays at sea!
