Likewise, Garage Pressure and local producer Twitch come with a truckload of unheard tunes and local production that is set to blow up internationally this year.
Local producer and DJ, Semper Fi, turns heads where ever he plays with wicked skills and tune selections, one of the best selectors in town. Victim and Kodama round off another heavy line-up, with special sets of oldschool Grime and hardcore UK beats.

another honorable mention that I wish I could get to is…
Sydney’s underground electronic music scene joins the fight against Africa’s orphan epidemic by hosting a fundraising concert on the 15th March at Sydney University’s Hermann’s Bar. The charity event Dub for No La Che will unite some of Australia’s top dubstep, dub, reggae, jungle and hip hop DJ’s & Producers, with all proceeds going directly to the La No Che orphanage in Tanzania.
Since commencement in 2003, the La No Che Orphanage & Youth Camp has provided a home for children of Tanzania who have been orphaned by disease. La No Che offers them shelter, education, food, medical supplies and, most importantly, love – something no child should do without. But with an appeal for more funds, Sydney’s underground music scene has become an unlikely ally.
Last year Melbourne hosted two massive charity events, raising around $10,000 in donor funds. While organizer Jess White is now currently in Tanzania volunteering at the orphanage, those remaining in Sydney are using their passion for music to fundraise for the same cause.
Dub for La No Che line up includes Mark Pritchard from Warp Records UK and Sonar Kollektiv, Sub Bass Snarl, Bec Paton and Somefreak from 2SER Radio, Basslines, Lorna Clarkson and Garage Pressure from FBI Radio, Victim from Void/Dubstep, Westernsynthetics from Sub Continental Dub records, Southern Steppa DJ’s, Sakura from the Collective, Double Robin and Insurgent from DSS and Firehouse Crew. The event goes from 8pm to 3am and tickets can be purchased on the door for $15.
The organizers are hoping to raise more than $3500 on the night, and all proceeds from the concert will go directly to purchasing the materials and employing local builders to help build La No Che orphans & youth camp a permanent home.
