Elec­tronic en­ergy

Townsville Bulletin - - The Guide -

PACK up your glow­sticks and danc­ing shoes — this New Year’s Eve is go­ing to be huge at Bom­bay Rock.

The club will be host­ing some of Aus­tralia’s best DJs for one, mas­sive all-night party.

And the girls will be get­ting amongst it with Aus­tralian num­ber one fe­male DJ BeXta play­ing along­side DJ Am­ber Sav­age.

They will be joined by one of Aus­tralia’s big­gest DJ ex­ports, Nik Fish, as well as DJ Weaver and lo­cal res­i­dent DJ Pandamonium.

And the night prom­ises to be a hot and sweaty night of high­en­ergy elec­tronic mu­sic.

DJ BeXta will be re­turn­ing to the North af­ter play­ing at the Brew­ery last New Year’s Eve.

She is part of a glut of big-name artists who have come out of Perth in re­cent years, in­clud­ing Eskimo Joe, Lit­tle Birdy and End of Fash­ion.

And since her first EP, Skir­mish Live, de­buted in the ARIA charts back in 1999 she hasn’t looked back.

‘‘Ev­ery time I’ve played in Townsville it’s al­ways been a re­ally good night,’’ BeXta said.

‘‘The crowd is al­ways up for vis­i­tors.’’

BeXta is es­pe­cially look­ing for­ward to catch­ing up with good friend and fel­low DJ Nik Fish.

‘‘I’ve been play­ing with Nik for 10 years around the traps,’’ she said.

‘‘We only re­ally get to catch up with each other at gigs be­cause we travel so much, so it will be fun to catch up and have a New Year’s drink.’’

She will line up with DJ Am­ber Sav­age, one of Aus­tralia’s most promis­ing fe­male DJs.

‘‘I’m not of­ten on a bill with an­other fe­male DJ so it’s good that this one will be 50/50,’’ BeXta said.

Sav­age, who broke through in 2000 at the ten­der age of 19, has even spun her brand of club mu­sic at the Big Day Out.

This will be trance and melodic hard­style spe­cial­ist Fish’s sec­ond visit to the North this year fol­low­ing his set at Bom­bay Rock in Septem­ber.

And for lovers of hard­core techno DJ/pro­ducer DJ Weaver will be drop­ping his en­er­getic set to round out the night. DJ Weaver has es­tab­lished him­self since as one the in­dus­try’s pre­mier pro­duc­ers and has played gigs in Bris­bane, Ade­laide, Can­berra, Perth, Cairns and through­out Syd­ney.

>> Bom­bay Rock’s New Year’s Eve cel­e­bra­tions fea­tur­ing DJs Bexta, Nik Fish, Am­ber Sav­age, Weaver and Pandamonium will start at 7pm and go right through un­til 5am. Tick­ets are $20 presold or $25 on the night. Tick­ets are avail­able from OzTix at www.bom­bayrock.com.au or from Bom­bay Rock. For de­tails call 4724 2800.
