The Hideout is a new collaborative effort between ourselves and some of fine folk from within the local industry – Think Twice, The Community, Flowlab and Analogue Agency. Launching tonight, Friday July  2, The Hideout is a free weekly night with a hip-hop flavour, embracing the local hip-hop community allowing hip-hop artists to showcase their music and bringing together local producers, emcess and DJs.

Opening night at The Hideout starts things off in style with local wordsmith and barefoot rapper (*note due to Leederville Hotel policy he will in fact be wearing shoes) Mathas. Cue shoe segue , as they are most likely the kicks of cam-indo-hip-psych-hop sheik and The Community’s other founder Diger Rokwell with something new, something borrowed and something blue. Resident DJ Arms In Motion will have his Torq in full effect with – you guessed it – hip-hop from all eras alongside the silent but violent DJ Silence who kicks off the madness from 8pm.

Little old Perth got a visit from Boogie Funk Royalty Last week when Dâm Funk landed. We got all fan boy in here when the man himself dropped by the Cut & Paste office to chat with John Macliver about hooking up with Stones Throw Records and his plans for the future direction of funk…watch and learn people.

The boys behind Think Twice launched the first ‘Mass Appeal’ last Friday, at The Manor.
Mass Appeal showcases 90s hip-hop – vinyl, breakdancing and solid tunes. Kicking things into action was 3x WA DMC Champion – DJ Junior, with an old-school five minute trick set. Check out his chops…

mg_6653Due to poor ticket sales the DJ Dexter gig was pulled from Villa Nightclub in November.  It was disappointing to say the least, but thanks to a few friends who managed to pull some ropes since Dexter was in town and itching to play, Mr Charlie Bucket was kind enough to give him a slot on Saturday the 17th at The Manor in Leederville.

But it seemed like everything went wrong that night.  After being refused entry, with my name on the door, the door bitch not knowing anything about a “DJ Dexter” playing that evening and then being told I wasn’t allowed in with a camera, and made to wait an hour whilst watching them allow people in ahead of us I was nearing certifiable psychotic behaviour by the time I PAID to go and shoot a favourite and deserving of more respect DJ Dexter who played a kick-ass 90 minute set.

The only thing The Manor needs is to learn some goddamn manners. Or else go and be subject to the guide of  Lovers and Lobbers I mean, fuck, I’m writing a review on you dudes. Whose cock do I need to suck under a piano to get some goddamn respect in this place?!
