DUST OFF YOUR FLURO PANTS, WAMP WAMP IS BACK!
WAMP WAMP RETURNS
w/ KATO, LEVINS & TRANTER
Saturday November 16th at Goodgod Small Club
In the Summer of 2006, DJ pals Kato and Levins (then known as Sleater Brockman) teamed up and put on a weekly Thursday night party at the tiny Bright'n Up Bar on Oxford St in Sydney. Their music brief was simple: only play genres with stupid names. The party was called WAMP WAMP.
Partygoers quickly became devoted fans of the mix of Crunk, Baltimore Club, Baile Funk and Hyphy that was played at Wamp Wamp each week, and were treated to guest sets from members of Ro Sham Bo, Bang Gang, Bag Raiders and other local legends. One insane night we were lucky enough to get Diplo to come play a set on which was easily the most packed night Bright'n Up Bar had ever seen.
Meanwhile, in the country town of Melbourne, our dawg Tranter was DJing at every single party there was, from Favela Rock to Fashion Keyboard, playing the same rad shit we played at Wamp Wamp. He was even in a band called Gameboy/Gamegirlwhose songs we played every week!
We're now headed into the summer of 2013/14, which means that Wamp Wamp was SEVEN YEARS AGO. What the fuck seriously. Let's celebrate this pointless milestone by bringing this party back with LEVINS, KATO and special guest TRANTER!
Dig up an old Modular tshirt, dye your hair neon and come pump your fist as we pay homage to one of the best eras for new club music ever. Wamp Wamp is back!
