      Recently I got to go check out the official Outlook Festival Queensland launch party in Brisbane. Presented by Quality Street Byron Bay, the event concept paid tribute to one of Europe’s most exciting Drum and Bass festivals and is a celebration of sound system culture.


       
      The European Outlook festival is on the bucket list of most diehard DNB fans so to be offered an aussie installment was an absolute treat. Hosted by The Brightside in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley, the venue really suited the event.


       
      As I arrived I walked into a energetic vibe and the DNB was in full swing.  With a line up featuring artists from the UK and interstate I was spoiled for choice. One of my personal favourites De La Haye played b2b with Kosha D and played some really funky liquid drum and bass.


       
      The pair are always a treat to watch and they really set the mood for the event for me. Followed up by Static Structures featuring Baptiste and Dub Phizix feat Chunky who played some really nice deep DNB the artists were quality.

       

      The space was large enough for the crowd and drinks are actually really cheap at this venue with the option for food at the little food canteen out the front. The venue has a number of toilets inside which is awesome because generally there is never enough toilets for everyone. The only downfall to this event was the sound quality with the venue clearly due for an upgrade to their speakers.


       
      The after party kicked on at Capulet, which for me is one of my favourite venues in Brisbane. If you haven’t been to this bar make sure you go check it out. The after party filled the venue. There was many smiling faces, people were dancing and the music was perfect with Tech House playing. My personal favourite was 8Man & Walrii in the main bar and then the DNB in the side area at Montague. There is not much more you can really ask for with a combined event like this.


       
      Overall, I really enjoyed this event - the music, the performers, the punters, the venues were an excellent choice and the security at both events were actually pretty friendly. I saw some familiar faces at both events but also a few new faces, so it was nice to see this event drew out some new people.


       
      I can’t wait to see what else Quality Street brings to us in the future.

      An overcast Saturday afternoon in Brisbane’s West End set the scene for a huge collaboration by Junkyard Sessions, Rewind and Rukus as they joined forces to present us with the massive outdoor SpectraSoul (UK) Drum N Bass Day Rave.
      The Boundary Hotel provided a sweet layout with a good sized dance floor adjacent to the bar, a choice of two separate pool rooms, a decent chill zone and a smoking area from which you could still see and hear the Dj’s. The high ceilings and palm trees gave the event the outdoor feel and was perfect as rain threatened throughout the afternoon.
      As I arrived around 4pm the first thing that struck me was the crowd. This was my first DNB event and the punters were reminiscent of a doof crowd. I was greeted by a sea of dreadlocks, snapbacks and the smell of sweat and essential oils all at once.  The vibe was already huge with the dancefloor almost full as De La Haye and Kosha B played a back to back warm up set.
      De La Haye and Kosha D run the local DNB night Junkyard Sessions, which happens on the second Saturday of each month, and has been gracing the Brissie scene since 2009, with both also running their own events since the early 2000’s. To say that this event was something special for the Brisbane DNB scene would be an understatement as going on 250 people packed the venue.

      Headliner SpectraSoul played a truly memorable liquid set to a crowd full of smiles. What a vibe! The set was the mixture of DNB and electronic that I’d been told to expect of SpectraSoul and was the perfect way to ease into my first Drum and Bass experience. The track that absolutely sealed the deal and stole a lil’ piece of my techno heart?   A remix of “Say What” by SpectraSoul and How We Live. This track had that emotive crowd winning female vocal and then broke down into calm and melodic DnB that I couldn’t stop listening to for days after the event.
      To close the party Mikmac and Speechless stepped up and almost immediately the energy and pace increased. Heavy rollers, Classic bangers, Neurofunk and Jump up were the weapons of choice. It was the kind of high-energy set that literally had people dancing on the stage, calling for rewinds, and chanting "one more song" as the event came to a close. It's clear that this was the REWIND crew in action and that’s where they got their name from.
      All up it was a good venue, amazing tunes and one of the nicest vibes I’ve seen in the Brisbane scene. This event won’t be forgotten anytime soon by myself or any of the hundreds of dedicated DNB ravers that attended. A truly epic offering by Junkyard Sessions, Rewind and Rukus. For anyone new to Drum and Bass or yet to experience this genre in Brisbane, I urge you to check out their future offerings as soon as you can.
