The Get-Down with Seth Hamilton, 6.30 til 8pm Saturdays, RDU98.5FM Christchurch- brought to you by CBD Bar, 208 Madras Street.
The Get-Down is about straight up party vibes. It casts genre boundaries aside and seeks to bring a broad array of fresh killer beats from across the globe. Everything from hip-hop mash-ups, funk remixes, iconic bootlegs, full force dancefloor killers, the latest in breakout sounds and anything else that you’d possibly feel the need to “Get Down” to.
Seth Hamilton has been a longtime figure in the scene, early 2000s were spent at Heaven Nightclub, then moved on to Mansion, from there he leapfrogged around the corner to The Concrete Club, where some might argue he had one of the most successful residencies in CHCH history, 6 years that were only able to be stopped by seismic forces. Now he’s got a weekly spot at CBD bar on Madras Street, as well as regular appearances for The Node, UCSA, M*A*S*S*I*V*E, two consecutive years at Rhythm and Alps and whatever else seems to fall in his lap.
Plenty of experience playing the long set taught Seth that people don’t want to listen to the same shit all night, they’re looking for a change up. A shift in energy. A lift in dynamic. Big drops, tempo changes, unexpected moments of impact that come seemingly out of nowhere. An ethos that no doubt helped him to be selected to compete in the NZ Final of the Red Bull Thre3style Competition in 2012, an experience that saw him tapped on the shoulder to put together and run the RDU Jägermeister Decknology DJ Competition in late 2012- some have said the most successful Decknology to date.
If you want to rave, you want Seth Hamilton and “The Get-Down” on the job.
