SorchaLula

SorchaLula fell in love with dance music after getting unexpectedly stuck in China some years ago. Never happier than in the midst of a dancefloor, she amps on tracks that make the body move, or the soul transcend. She typically channels hefty basslines, silky melodies and/or irresistibly dancey beats.

She plays from downtempo to house, across 140 bass/dubstep, and up to halftime, jungle, liquid and drum n bass, often crafting multi-genre sets. 2021 has seen festival sets at Earth Beat Music & Arts Festival, CubaDupa Festival, Twisted Frequency Festival and Beervana, plus other gigs and dance parties around Aotearoa.

Hunua Hustle

Hunua Hustle aka Ben King, has been working towards perfecting the art of DJing for over a decade. He's played in bars, clubs, underground house parties and various festivals throughout Aotearoa.

Ben enjoys nothing more than telling the story through a great track selection and seeing the crowd respond to the energy.

He likes to explore most electronic mediums but is drawn toward Tech,  Progressive and Minimal Deep Tech House, and often crafts is set specifically for the occasion. Most of his inspiration comes from the European underground scene. Often it's not the headliners that surprise you - it's the DJ you've never heard of that shines.
