Yacht Club Djs are Gareth Harrison and Guy Chappell - Lawrence. The pair met at Ballarat's Karova Lounge a few years ago and somewhere along the line (and probably after a few too many beers) started making mashups. Since their incarnation and a massive stint pushing disks to indie kids in melbourne the duo decided to take their live show more seriously and took on the festival and touring circuit after successful performances at the Meredith Music Festival and Falls Festival in late 2008. 2009 has seen them tour Victoria and NSW, with brief jaunts up to QLD as well.

Mensah (full name Mensah Anderson), is a producer from Bristol, UK. Bringing to bass music what he likes to call "Future Funk" (though he is not a fan of labeling music), he's been combining his influences from Rave, Grime and Dubstep to produce anything from an upbeat purple sound to a darker, heavier bass. With one release on LoDubs Records so far, he has a release with No Hats No Hoods coming in January 2010 and multiple releases with H.E.N.C.H. expected to drop in March 2010.
Darren Sylvester is an accomplished Melbourne visual artist and photographer turning his efforts to brilliant 80's inspired synth pop. He draws much inspiration from New Order, but there is much to be found in his self titled debut album such as the heartbraking wall of sound tribute found in the song 'Phil Spector'. Darren will be one to watch in 2010 having gone relatively undiscovered in 2009 which is amazing given the man has such talent.
KING TIDE was formed in early 2004 after a successful reggae jam between vocalist Tony Hughes and ‘toaster’ Sean Collins. During a live show in Sydney, the band was spotted by advertising executives who asked them to record a cover of Toots and the Maytals’ “Broadway Jungle” for a Sony TV ad campaign. The band released the cover as a full length single ‘No Dog War’, which received national airplay.
