Brown Alley (585 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne CBD)
Gavin King, is the man behind Aphrodite Recordings. It all started way back in the summer of love ’88′ running an Acid House club called Aphrodite, the namesake has been with him since.
Through various chance meetings with DJs Micky Finn and Claudio Giussani, Urban Shakedown was born. Over the years Aphro’s own Aphrodite Recordings and Urban Takeover, a joint lable with Micky Finn followed. The musical progession to Drum n Bass was a natural step over the years through hardcore and jungle.
Aphrodite Recordings is the base outlet for all music with the Aphro signature.
DJ Aphrodite is known for playing out a good vibe that ranges from classics to upfront and exclusive dubplates. Aphro is invited to DJ in countries all over the world.
Micky started DJing in the late eighties and became well known with the advent of the Acid House movement in South London. He was given the name Micky Finn because of his build by mates and friends in the scene. In the early nineties breakbeat and loose jungle techno was filling his record boxes as he travelled the length and breadth oh the UK. Such was the demand for his skills at this time by huge events all around the country he was even strarting to catch private planes between gigs. Micky’s production talents started off with Biting Back – She’s Breaking Up then partnered Gavin and Claudio for Urban Shakedown – Some Justice.
Now Micky travels the world and throws down his vibe in countries like Japan, USA, Australia, Holland, Ibiza, Germany, Finland, Israel and France to name just a few.
MC Shabba D
MC Shabba is a name which has become legendary amongst the livelier, more dancefloor orientated D&B scene. From humble beginnings on the now defunct ‘Rush FM’ with DJ’s such as Funky Flirt, Rusher and Red Ant alongside MC Shockin’, 14 year old Shabba worked his way through the ranks, becoming increasingly popular with listeners and leading to his first booking in 1991, when Shabba first MCed at Outrage at Busbys in Charing Cross alongside the likes of DJ Rap, Hardcore General, Stevie Hyper D etc.
Shabba is one of the scene’s true veterans, having spent the best part of twenty years in the business. In many peoples opinion, one of the greatest lyricists and entertainers the scene has to offer. When you go out to see Shabba, it ain’t just about the lyrics, it’s the way he delivers and the way he hypes up the crowd like no other. Look out for Sticky, Higher Level and Shabba himself coming to a city near you.

Twisted Audio residents play Deliverance Festival in NSWPosted: Wednesday, November 21st, 2012
We are very proud to have some of our resident artists perform at this year’s Deliverance Festival in NSW taking place from the 14th – 17th of December, representing Twisted Audio will be Dysphemic & Miss Eliza, Lickweed and SK MC.
Deliverance is a limited ticket invitational Arts and Bass Music Gathering held in a venue fairly unique in Australia. Situated in the great dividing range of Northern NSW, we’ve found a site with a few features we think makes this a perfect long term home for our event.
Our dream is to create a long-term, community-focused, fun, creative outlet for cutting-edge music, art, and culture. We believe that when many creative minds are in one place, magic happens. Deliverance is intended to encourage this gathering of spirits, and through collaboration with other like minded events which share similar ethics and goals, work toward a greater, global goodness.
Deliverance aims to showcase diverse, futuristic and unique styles of electronic music, all in the the beauty of the Australian outdoors. Our primary guests are those who create art or music themselves: Those who are into interesting sound design, exploration, collaboration, and the sharing of concepts and ideas through sonic, visual, and other means.
We don’t favor any musical genre over another and plan to always bring you a broad range of sonic goodness – selected both locally and from the global underground.
In each of our ‘micro-scenes’ here in Australia, there are scores of brilliant, creative people. We are all into tons of different musical styles and a variety of other expressive/art styles. Deliverance remains a single stage event in the hope that having all you amazing people in the same space, for the entire event, will once again create something unforgettable for us all to share.
