The Lowdown Event: Sunny Vibe-up with DJ Shepdog and J Star Where: Dusk Terrace, Radisson Blu Hotel, Media City When: Friday April 19
While the bigger budget car park party Younique raged down the road, the truly alternative clubbers were found at rooftop pool party Sunny Vibe-up. There was some serious reggae and dub dropped by UK headliner Shepdog, but it was the beguiling diverse mix of hip-hop, house, Latin, funk and more from a mammoth bill of local DJs that surprised us most. And hats most certainly come off for MC Hamokane and vocalist Madeline Butcher, who kept things ticking over with spirited vocal interjections. Here’s to the last Vibe-up before summer, set for Friday May 3.
