The third installment hits the Coast

Gisborne, land of the Sun, has a job to do! Wrest the country from the throes of winter!

The third installment of SPRING BREAKS hits the Coast with a packed Lineup comprising numerous styles.

Elm spins deep house and solid four-on-the-floor grooves. Dr. Livingston hails up the funky side of things with hip-shaking breaks and banging vocal tracks. Back after a smashing recent event with his DJ partner Geraldine, Hat puts the pedal to the metal with tech-house. The Missing Link wraps it all up with drum'n bass.

Fresh from the success of the Kaiti Collective CD, Dee.En.Tee (Myschiff Makers) bring super-live hip hop into the mix. With nine members, the group combines high-energy vocals, their original, Coastie-influenced lyrics and beats that rank with the best of New Zealand rap.

Dee.En.Tee are pumped-up to present songs such as "Styles" and "Not a Gangsta," which are already local favourites. Kaiti Collective, produced and released by Te Toka Records, a division of Te Ora Hou Te Tairawhiti charitable trust, has sold well locally and all over New Zealand, and also features BrazilBeat Sound System.

BrazilBeat Sound System contributed two tracks to the Collective, "Capoeira Dub" and "Rain." The song "Rain" has just been released on another CD collective: Bits Sessions (Nikita Music), in Brazil and Europe.

The CD release party will take (took) place on 11th September at Sonarsound, one of the biggest clubs in São Paulo, Brazil, the hub of electronic music in South America. BrazilBeat will rock Spring Breaks with their fusion of roots & dance music.

Visual artist Andrew Hill takes charge of the multimedia visuals and projections.

Get Ready! SPRING BREAKS inna house!
