Groove with Twisted Beats

Who: Brewster B
What: Nutshell Breaks
Where: The Cambridge Hotel
When: Saturday October 13, 2001

ASK Brewster B what his style of music is all about and he will tell you that 'it's all about the groove'.

The Melbourne-based DJ is coming to Newcastle to headline Saturday's Nutshell Breaks at The Cambridge Hotel with Kato, Auxilary and Mathmatics. Setting himself apart from other DJs, Brewster B incorporates different instruments and equipment to create what has been described as 'weird twisted beats'.

The Brewster B story began in 1992 when he started out as an ambient DJ, quickly moving on to serve up funkier, beat-oriented music.

By 1997 he moved on to add a breakbeat sound to his set and his style has allowed him to perform alongside dance heavyweights such as Carl Cox and Fatboy Slim. Brewster B can be heard serving up a variety of grooves from minimal dub and electro funk beats to dark two-step and new skool breaks.

He has added a live element to his performance by incorporating an EFX500 effects unit and a sampler.

Brewster owns the Weird World record label and is working on a number of new projects, including sample-based productions for his live gigs.

Nutshell is from 10.30pm to 5am, tickets are available for $10 at the Cambridge, PDMS and Abicus or at the door for $15.
