Lickweed & Monkee play Rehab @ Rubix this Sunday!

Posted: Saturday, June 1st, 2013


After a big weekend murdering dance floors, what better way to revitalise than kickn back at REHAB.. not the kind of rehab that knows Charlie Sheens weight or Lindsay Lohans sexual health records, not the kind of rehab you sing no no no to whilst being thrown over a shoulder and hauled down a dark corridor..

Rehab @ Rubix is where you go to feel coated with love, get pampered, listen to awesome tunes, play pinnies, have a skate or paint a piece and hang amongst like minded souls.

Our resident and guest dj’s will be casually dropping phatness every sunday whilst you sip on fresh fruit cocktails, snack on nutritious home made num nums, indulge in a massage or throw back a beer whilst chuffn on a ciggy, whatever makes you most happy.

Ctoafn, Lickweed & Dyzlexic play the Hopskotch Records launch party

Hopskotch Records

Following on from our Double EP launch last month, we have another Double EP launch from 2 of Melbourne’s freshest heavy bass music producers..

Shifty Sly

7th of June @ My Aeon (791 Sydney rd. Brunswick)
10pm til lat
$10 on the door

With support from:
Lickweed & Dyzlexic
Kodiak Kid
Mustard Tiger
Angus Green vs. Matty Blades


Shifty prefers to be known as a BASSLINE DJ which allows his sets to be a mash of Breaks, Electro, Dubstep, Drumstep and Drum n Bass. Shifty prefers his sounds on the harder darker edge but is just as comfortable scratching and looping out a chilled downbeat jazzy cafe set if that’s what’s required. Shifty takes pride in having a record collection vast enough to walk into any club at anytime and play an appropriate set but will be at his best at 4am smashing it so hard your nose will bleed…… Shifty not only keeps working on his DJ game staying ahead of the pack but has also moved into the world of production so keep your ears peeled for some hard heavy snarling bass action from Mel Towns heavyweight bass hitter Shifty Sly.

Check out Shifty’s debut EP on hopskotch “Like A Fox” on Beatport:


New to the Hopskotch Records family is 18 Year old Harley Gibson from Melbourne, Australia. Working on the heavy end of bass music, Wolfy beats range from Drumstep & beastly Dubstep to Hiphop beats and instrumentals. His debut and follow up EP are both due to drop on Hopskotch Recs over the next couple of months via Beatport.

Sunday May 19th @ Royal Melbourne Hotel






Battering down the doors of the genre elitists come a pair of producers plucked from the ranks of Ram’s new generation of incredible music talents. In just under two years, Delta Heavy, or Simon James and Ben Hall to their mums, have already proven their electronic prowess with a succession of heavy-hitting original tracks.
They met at university in Nottingham and after several years of hard work, their production efforts resulted in dance floor anthem ‘Abort’, which came out on Viper’s headroom EP in June 2010 to a huge response and gained them recognition within the scene. With Radio 1 support from Zane Lowe and Huw Stevens as well as Andy C, Friction, High Contrast and the rest, it became a vital fixture in DJ sets across the country. Signing to Ram in early 2010, their debut single ‘Space Time / Take The Stairs’ was nominated as Best Track at the 2010 Drum & Bass Arena Awards as well as nominations for Best Producer and Best Newcomer DJ. Hitting number 1 across all the download stores, ‘Space Time’ was undoubtedly one of the biggest d&b tracks of the year.
The release of their highly anticipated and critically acclaimed EP ‘Down The Rabbit Hole’ in 2012 saw Delta Heavy firmly established themselves as one of the most exciting artists to emerge in recent years. The EP had outstanding radio support from Fearne Cotton, lead track ‘Get By’ was Annie Mac’s special delivery, Zane Lowe, Huw Stephens, Sara Cox and all relevant specialist DJ support on BBC Radio 1; Mistajam Record of the Week and play listed at 1Xtra, plus spot plays on Capital & XFM. The video for ‘Get By’ was hailed as a ‘cultural back story to the 90s’ and was an outstanding performance of stop motion graphics being used to utter devastation when teamed with the best in electronic music. It had homepage features on Youtube, Vevo, The Sun & CBS News and also saw two additional nominations at the UK MVA’s. Add to this a remix for Nero which hit over 150,000 downloads in the first 3 months of release, 2012 was a big year.
Now working hard on their debut album for Ram Records, they are set to embark on an epic tour of Australia & New Zealand in May 2013 so make sure you catch them in your city for what promises to be the “must see” event of the year!


Fledgling stars Fred Vahrman and Josh Jackson a.k.a Fred V & Grafix signed to Hospital at the end of 2011 and have been making waves ever since. A pair of producers who have been working together for the past five years now and showing huge promise, the boys have already brought us such gems as “One Of These Days”, “Long Distance“ and “Room To Breathe”, as well as featuring on a number of Hospitality compilations. When they’re not making uplifting liquid gems and charming D+B fans across the globe, the Devon duo are often found on BBC Radio 1Xtra or doing mini mixes for Annie Mac. Now the duo embarks on their debut Australian tour to tear up shows across the sun burnt land alongside bass heavyweights DELTA HEAVY!……This is a tour not to be missed by lovers of bass music!
Recent recruits to the scene, Fred V & Grafix were initially into live music, with Fred’s guitar talents still coming into good use in their recent contribution to the “Fifteen Years Of Hospital Records” album “Find My Way”. The pair converted to D+B when they heard Pendulum’s controversial and genre-changing album “Hold Your Colour” and High Contrast’s sophomore “High Society”. Influenced by an eclectic range of sounds outside of D+B, from electro/French house, ambient and hip hop, Fred V & Grafix cite artists such as Flying Lotus, Bonobo, Dilla and Jimi Hendrix as key inspirations, alongside fellow Hospital artists High Contrast and Logistics.
Having already released music on Allsorts and Talkin Beatz, and received Radio One support from Zane Lowe and Annie Mac, Fred V & Grafix made their Hospital debut on the “Fifteen Years Of Hospital Records” album with “Find My Way”. As well as producers within their own right, Fred V & Grafix have also stunned us with their remixes of Emeli Sande – “Daddy”, Skepta – “Hold On”, Camo & Krooked – “All Fall Down” and not forgetting their amazing remix of Rudimental’s chart-topping No. 1 hit “Feel The Love”.
Since signing to Hospital, Fred V & Grafix impressed with their Sick Music 3 contribution “Major Happy” and the epic “Purple Gates” which appeared on Hospitality D&B 2013 before finally bringing us their debut solo release, the awe-inspiring “Goggles EP” which dropped in March 2013. With plenty of charisma, talent and the backing of many of the industry’s key players, one thing’s for sure – as we look ahead, the future is most definitely bright for Fred V & Grafix.
