CONTINUING to set the airwaves on fire with the dance floor anthem The Bass Has Got Me Movin', [Love] Tattoo will perform at the inaugural Slide09 party at the Cambridge Hotel on Saturday night.

Stephen Allkins is the man behind [Love] Tattoo and he is enjoying chart success both in Australia and the UK with the single.

Also noted for his work on Drop Some Drums, Allkins was recently awarded an Australian Dance Music Award for Outstanding Contribution to Australian Dance Music.

A notable fan of his work is renowned DJ Fatboy Slim who concluded a recent Brighton beach party with Drop Some Drums to thousands on the beach and thousands watching the telecast.

Allkins will be joined by organisers and local DJs Kato and Auxilary who will play the first two hours back to back on three turntables, mixing funk, house and breaks.

Throughout his 20-year career, Allkins has played with legends of dance music such as Frankie Knuckles, David Morales, Kings Of Tomorrow, Roger Sanchez, Armand Van Helden and Fatboy Slim. Also playing on Saturday night at the new monthly party is Chris Calm. Slide09 kicks off at 11pm to 5am and tickets are $10 pre sale from The Cambridge Hotel, $11 from Abicus Selections or $15 at the door.

The first 10 people through the door will receive a free [Love] Tattoo CD.
