D.J Dubsonic and Jamin-i are totally fizzing about their next gig on the 4th of January at the Yot club. I caught up with them to find out why.
So, what’s the story?
We’re stoking because JSTAR , who is our favourite dj/remix producer from the UK, is coming to Raglan to play with us. His appearance is setting a mark for us as the first international dj to play at the Yot club . We’ve been buying his records for the past couple of years and every time we “drop” one of his tunes, the dance floor fills up and the crowd goes wild.
Who is JSTAR?
JSTAR is a “remixer” and DJ from London, he has struck gold worldwide with his blends of reggae instrumentals & hip-hop acapellas. He takes old school riddims and re-mixes it with soul shaking bass that makes people wana shake their booty! His records have found their way into the “sets” of many Dj’s worth their salt including grandmaster flash.
How did you hook up with JSTAR?
Manifestation I guess! About a year ago we were saying how we’d love to gig with JSTAR . . We saw he was playing this New Years Eve with Shape Shifter, Katchafire , Kora SunshineSoundSystem and Tiki Tane at CoroGold which sold out within 3 weeks. We contacted him, kiwi-style; told him what we’re about, and asked him to play with us . He was stoked as, he heard that Raglan was an amazing place …
When is the gig?
On the 4th of January at the Yot club. Only $10.
