@ NINGALOO CENTRE

After a period of mystery and speculation, the hyped hip-hop six-piece performing as Pow Negro! have announced their transition into SUPEREGO and offer a new single “I Am The Judge” under a new moniker, complete with a fresh sound.

From selling out shows across the country, to playing prestigious festivals such as Womadelaide and Woodford to being hand chosen to support acts such as Midnight Oil, Sampa The Great and Remi off the back of their debut EP Jasmine & Licorice, the group are moving to a more scaled back beats-heavy hip hop production.

DJ VIDA LOCA

@ NINGALOO CENTRE

Inspired by classic hip hop she emerged from the Cave Bar as Mama Tiger through the early naughties supporting local hip hop and break beat artists. Soon titillated by the rise of the funk club, her taste developed into a more worldly style. From Afro funk to bangin breaks the mission has always been to get the booties shaking! Most recently indulging in the Blazing Swan movement her wheels of steel have been making sparks in the debaucherous Kamp Koasis.

Being one of the few “real Dj’s” left out there, there really is nothing like livin’ the Vida Loca.
