Coniston Lane — a venue quickly becoming synonymous with quality music nights and somewhat of a refuge for the discerning basshead.
Last Friday (July 13) was no exception with Coniston bringing the one and only Skeptical
to Brisbane along with Qbik
and a wealth of local talent for our enjoyment.
Local dubstep purveyors Monkeybar
were in fine form mixing a tasty selection of deep, growling and generally nasty basslines before De La Haye
stepped up to show exactly why she’s one of Brisbane's finest.
With the sets rapidly passing us by and the dancefloor filling up it was time for Qbik
, one of WA's finest, and a regular Brisbane visitor, to step up and show how things are done on the west coast.
Dropping a quality selection of heavily melodic and and upfront dancefloor material the atmosphere was electric with the crowd responding to his every whim.
The time had finally come for potentially one of the most anticipated acts of the year. I am sure I am not alone when I say that it’s been a long time coming for Skeptical to hit Brisbane and he didn't disappoint.
Deep, dark, haunting and obscurely beautiful are just a few lacklustre words to attempt to describe the next 90 minutes.
This truly is D&B in its purest form with Skeptical and Dub Phizix’s Marka
showing exactly why the heaving mess of a dancefloor was there to stay.
Massive thanks to Coniston Lane for making this possible; I’m already hanging out for his next tour.Photos: Stephen Sloggett
