After owning the stage numerous times at Half Time Oranges in Dunedin and playing an insane set at the Cellar Stage at Rhythm and Vines 2017. Ruffhouse Crew’s Dislocate is blessing the stage at Caroline with one of the headlining sets. This is his debut set in Wellington so you know he will be bringing the heavy hitters for one big night of Drum and Bass.
Once a Wellington local, Smithers packed his bags and moved to Dunedin. Once he was there he exploded on to the local Drum and Bass scene, playing the annual Half Time Oranges shows and opening for Danny Byrd. Known as the Don of Totara Records and famous for his crazy bender fuelled snapchats, Smithers returns to Wellington to lay it down in the Capital once again.
A man of many talents, Dowdz (AKA Moonrock Dowdz) is ecstatic to play his debut set in Wellington. Further consolidating the Totara Records name in the local Drum and Bass scene. After a opening for Tokyo Prose and a year in involuntary hiatus from the Half Time Oranges lineup, Dowdz has developed a unique new sound inspired by Jungle Drum and Bass. He has included liquid hints that will be perfect to close the night off.
This Auckland/Wellington duo are well known in the local music/event scene having played numerous venues across Wellington. They have opened up for Logistics, Delta Heavy, Fred V and Grafix and the Prototypes. They are the third and final act holding down headlining duties for the night. Having prepared an unforgettable B2B set that is reminiscent of duos such as Camo and Krooked, but still has that classic Chopd Up sound.
Head of Coastal promotions and on main support duties for the night is Worthoss. Having changed genres from his last set at Betty’s to Drum and Bass from Hip Hop, he has crafted a new versatile set covering numerous sub-genres of Drum and Bass. Fresh off a few killer sets on Dunedin’s Castle Street in O week, he is back in his home to lay it down on the Wellington stage once again. Showcasing what Coastal Promotions is all about.
Coastal promotions affiliate, and Wellington local Elisara is ready to explode on to the scene with his debut live show. Taking inspiration from the likes of UKF and AMC, Elisara has a diverse set of DNB with an original and unique tune. The young gun is finally ready to take his talents to the stage!
Atmosfear is a drum&bass duo formed within the windy capital of NZ. These two audio pioneers forged the sounds of Wellington’s nocturnal culture. However, they’ve linked together for a half-hour of power consisting of pure vocals and deep flavour that originally brought these two together. With inspiration from Skank&Bass, Noisia Radio and 1985 Music, Atmosfear will open to what is going to be a night of heavy rolling.
