Tom Showtime (Ghetto Funk/Booty Fruit)

“Tom Showtime is a man of many guises. DJ. Producer. Remixer. Saxophonist. Gramophone Enthusiast. From Be-Bop to Breakbeat and everything in between, Tom’s passion for music is paralleled only by his legendary (some would say mythical) enjoyment of watermelon, coffee and cricket. That’s just how he rolls… The list of achievements is coming thick and fast for one of the scene’s true all rounders, having supported international acts such as A.Skillz, The Nextmen, Scratch Perverts, Bonobo and Mark Rae. In between multiple DJ residencies across then city, Tom is still as prolific as ever in the studio, releasing his critically acclaimed debut album The Jam Thief as well as numerous EPs and the ‘Your Word Against Mine’ series of bootlegs. Signed to the UK’s Ghetto Funk label and with a #1 release on the Juno Download Best Selling Chart (The Chippa Irie EP / Booty Fruit) Melbourne’s own purveyor of fine funk is in demand and on the rise…

Matty Blades and (Brotherhood of Beats DJs) and Matty Blades have been pushing a unique blend of funk and soul to its edge in Melboure for over 7 years. Hosting Melbourne first dedicated Ghetto Funky / Party Glitch night at Workshop – Dropping Phat! – their 6 year residency set the building blocks for the Brotherhood of Beats.
Both DJs and Producers in their own right, they team up to deliver high energy sets. Putting on a show with 4 decks, 2 CDs and 2 mixers is the true nature of their back to back performances. From delivering epic sets in-between FreQ Nasty and the Freestylers, NYE @ Trust Us, opening up the stage for Krafty Kuts and A-Skills, NYD @ Tribe, performing at outdoor festivals such as Earth 2012 + 2013, collaborating with vocalists and MCs for live shows, all the way to the humble sets to smaller Melbourne drinking holes; they guys are always on the move and pushing forward into new directions.
Fusing the various sounds of Hip-hop, Funk, Ghetto Bass, Glitch, Drum and Bass and revisited classics, along with the unmistakable sound of Matty Blades on the scratch and fader, you can expect to leave the dance floor with a big smile on your face!!
