Opening Night Party
The Red Eyes (Australia) feat. live dub-mixing by Mad Professor (UK), The Public Opinion Afro Orchestra (Africa/Australia) with Tumi (South Africa), Dubmarine (Australia) + DJ’s Kartick & Gotam (India/Israel)
The Red Eyes is a 10-piece monster band from Melbourne that has been shaking foundations around the country with a heavyweight bass and mind-altering dub sound since joining forces in 2002.
International dub legend, Mad Professor, is considered one of the leading producers of dub music’s second generation and instrumental in transitioning dub into the digital age.
Inspired by the infectious afro-beat music of Nigeria and its neighbours, The Public Opinion Afro Orchestra delivers a contemporary blend of hip-hop and African funk. Comprising up to twenty musicians hand-picked from Melbourne’s African, jazz & hip-hop scenes.
Tumi is one of South Africa’s brightest up and coming wordsmiths. This hip-hop master has shared the stage with the likes of Dead Prez, The Roots and street poet laureate Talib Kweli.
Combining reggae, hip hop, dub, funk and dancehall, Brisbane’s Deadly Award nominees Dubmarine are renowned for their deep groove, fluid rhymes, and potent musical spices.
Kartick & Gotam transcend the normal barriers between classic and modern, or electronic and acoustic, Indian music.
