This show was a mix of new and old, nostalgia and future! We resurrected Spaceport in a new way. To kick off our new night we convinced Blue Mountains supergroup Two Toes to come out of retirement (Joe New on the raps, Caustic Yoda on percussion, Waza strumming the bass, and DJ Cost on the cuts). They had done one show only in the last 6 years and I was so impressed that I HAD to have them on the first Spaceport. Joe New's raps were so fire we literally set off the fire alarm! Those poor fireys were so confused!
Next on the list, Sarah Connor was a no brainer! She just won the Hilltop Hoods initiative and this chick has the raps that cut hard to the core. A strong female that speaks her mind and an exceptional lyricist and rapper to boot.
Yum Yum we love- a curve ball in a hip hop night, but her sultry voice over a mix of soulful beats really won over the crowd.
Who could we get to support that could really hold his own against such a strong line up? I met El' Jistos at that Two Toes show I described earlier. He proposed to be their biggest fan and he was a young gun with boundless enthusiasm. I knew he could jump at the chance to support one of his favourite groups and he did the job getting the crowd hyped.
And don't forget Jimmy New was spinning tunes all night so there was never a dull moment!
