FORMER HOME nightclub manager JEREMY RUZ is doing his part to bring some of the biggest names in dance to the suburbs of Newcastle.

Ruz, who now runs Lambton's BAR 121 , has devised a new Sunday afternoon event dubbed LOCALBEATS with the help of VITALBEATS organiser GEORGE PATSAN .

Together the pair have taken their experience and knowledge to give local DJs the chance to share the decks with some of Australia's best at Bar 121.

Localbeats made a low key debut last month and will return with an impressive line up of national and local acts this weekend.

Set to appear are local DJs PATSAN and BOOGIE alongside hip hop duo 2 DOGS , of RESIN DOGS fame and DJs JASON BYE and MARK WALTON , who both hold residencies at Sydney's Home nightclub.

Patsan said Localbeats offers a broad appeal.

``Localbeats collectively encompasses genres from house, funk, hip hop and breaks and is sure to satisfy fans hungry for all forms of dance music,'' Patsan said.

``It will no doubt become the place to spend a Sunday afternoon before hitting the town - or even just before your head hits the pillow.

'' Localbeats kicks off at 1.30pm and buses are available into town from 10pm.

Tickets are $20 on the door.
