So many haters. I was expecting it to be quiet on such a cold miserable night, but somehow we squeezed 500 people into that backroom of Goodgod. Chalk it up as another victory for R&B over everything.

Stay in touch. This was just the warm up, as we bring back the Player Hater’s Ball in the coming months.

Once again the Pineapple Republic massive brought their unique brand of latin and caribbean heat to the Goodgod Danceteria. Special guests Huwston and Klue went deep on the african rhythms and the Doll Squadron 101 cracked necks with a killer live performance.

Here is a mix for you to listen to till the next party…

And some tunes..

Woah. There are few parties in Sydney where people come to dance like they do at Dutty. Maximum jiggling. Intense booty shaking. Great crowd packed into the sweaty Goodgod Danceteria for a night that feels like authentic Caribbean basement party. Big love for everybody that came down, those competed in our Dance off and our winner – Jess Subbs.

Catch you at the next party. Saturday April 26 at Goodgod Small Club. In the meantime, check out Shantan’s dancehall tape…

In the 10 years that FBi 94.5 FM has been on air it has been making a huge contribution to making Sydney a better place to live in. It has been given huge support to exciting new music nobody else has been playing, and has also been the hub for many people that are opening businesses and putting on events that are enriching our city.

To celebrate we decided to put on a party. Not just any party. Possibly one of the best festivals in Sydney since ever. By the railroad in Chippendale, Carriage Works turned out to be a beautiful setting for a party. The crowd was a really good looking laid back bunch of people. And the line up was an amazing collection of friends of our station.

Here are some pictures mostly from the Hip Hop stage where the likes of Urthboy, Spit Syndicate, Joyride, Thundamentals, Kataylst, Big Village Family, Citizen Kay, Naughty Rappers Collective, Mike Who and me – Shantan Wantan Ichiban – peformed. Fun times.

Photos: Player Haters Ball – Dr Dre 2001 Tribute

The Player Haters Ball returns to the Goodgod Danceteria. This time to pay tribute to Dr Dre’s 2001 album. Joyride and his band of merry men gave these gangsta rap classics a pimped out soul reworking, while Levins, Shantan Wantan Ichiban and Joyride in DJ mode threw down jam after jam to keep the dancefloor heaving till the early hours of the morning.

Weren’t there? Tsk! Tsk! Tsk! Here is a little taste of what you missed out on…

Listen: Dr Dre – Fuck You

Another packed out show at the Enmore full of excitable young hip hop fans, coming out in force to see rising star Mac Miller. Like Kendrick Lamar recently, Mac Miller has been filling up rooms across the country with very little radio support. Hip Hop really seems to be popular at the moment as folks just seem to be more connected with what is popping in music more globally.

The 21 year old rapper from Pittsburgh, has been killing it in the States. Like the Beastie Boys years before him, he just makes hip hop that your average teenager who likes to party and get stoned can relate to. Frat Rap… kinda.

Anyways, Mac Miller’s show at Enmore went off. Great energy. The crowd was so into it, it felt like the place was sold out as the place went bonkers. He also did a heap of covers, including getting everybody to sing Michael Jackson.

Listen to Mac Miller Freestyle and Interview on Stolen Records…

EL-P – one of those odd balls kids of the hip hop world. After years of putting out groundbreaking indie hip hop material, it only seems like now EL-P’s music is finding a comfortable place for it’s self in context with what is happening in the indie music scene.

Touring with Laneway Festival, EL-P did an extra show in Sydney at Oxford Art Factory for the hardcore fans. The old Co Flow fans that can mumble along convincingly to every indecipherable EL-P lyric, came out in force.

An amazing show. A whole lot of energy, a lot of jumping around, particularly when he dropped ‘Drones Over BRKLYN’. Oh and supported by Purpose, who was dope!
