Last week Rahzel was in town!  Teaming up with DJ JS-1, Bitter Belief and Porsah Laine they stopped in at The Rosemount to join Diger Rockwell, Fdel, Armee and L-Street  for a Thursday night party!

When a young Rahzel was practicing his very first sounds – going about his day with a constant “brrrr – qiiiii – dum – dum” accompanying his step, he must have sounded a little kookoo.  But the years of training and refining his technique have paid off earning himself the reputation of being (arguably) the best beatboxer that walks the earth.

As the night turned into morning the packed out venue was fists in the air pumped.  Fans enjoyed a beatbox session from acclaimed albums Make The Music and Rahzel’s Greatest Knockouts. Creating sounds of drums, bass, piano and vocals with his mouth, throat and gut he single handedly impersonated a number of hip hop / rock classics by the Wu Tang Clan, Black Sabbath, Jay Z, Notorious BIG, The White Stripes Lauren Hill and more. He kicked a lot of familiar beats and the energy and sound exerted quenched the crowds thirst for hip hop.  A couple of new covers chucked in were Alicia Keys’ No One and Kanye West’s Gold Digger.  Rounding off the night was original If Your Mother Only Knew prompting an appreciative roar from onlookers.

Rahzel live = a must see

{move} and Cool Perth Nights proudly present Warp Records most notorious sonic explorer – Clark – live and direct from the UK.

Followers of this crucial UK artist, and those of you with a healthy dose of curiosity when it comes to new directions in dance music ought feel very lucky to be able to experience Clark for his very first Australian live set performance. Having released 6 EPs and 5 LPs to critical acclaim through the Warp records imprint, Chris Clark – on the tail end of a tour through Europe’s capital cities and on his way to the Spectacular Warp20 showcase in Tokyo – is set to be in very fine form.

Friday, November 6, at The Republic on the corner of Wellington Street and Shafto Lane in the city; this venue has limited capacity for such an outstanding artist and that’s the way it should be!

Support comes from Dave Miller of Pivot (Warp records), and pysch-beat-freak Naik (PaperChain); having recently released his debut LP ‘In The Shadow of Thunder Mountain’ this performance should not be missed. Plus, DJ Ben Taaffe making strategic {move}s and Petro Vouris bringing some Love to close the night off!

Tickets on sale through, available at Planet, 78s and Mills from Tuesday October 20. Very limited tickets will be available on the door on the night of the show from 9pm. Be very ready to get your Clark on…
