Press Release:

Just when you thought the line-up of acts couldnít get any better, RHYTHM & VINES are pleased to confirm a fourth installment of artists to perform at the festival this year. UK eclectic production duo THE NEXTMEN, also known as Brad Baloo and Dom Search, have been pushing through numerous sweaty styled-out club sets and festival-stopping performances of late and will join the stage at RHYTHM & VINES with one of Britainís most exciting young artists and music entrepreneurs MC WREC. Over the last few years THE NEXTMEN have been infusing the European club scene with their undeniably fresh take on club based electronica, mixing dancehall, hip-hop, soul and dubstep with the vocal styling of some of todayís great talents including MC WREC and even New Zealandís own Fat Freddyís Drop singer Dallas Tamaira (aka Joe Dookie). Coming straight out of the East End of London to Gisborne, New Zealand, is

MICACHU AND THE SHAPES - one of the freshest acts to emerge on the indie/alternative scene in recent years. Micachu (Mica Levi), with backing from The Shapes (Marc Pell - Drums, Raisa Khan - Keys & Electronics) are a treat to behold. Their absorbing electro-pop, wonky rhythms and edgy Brit Rock within stunning production is garnering them critical acclaim across the board. MICACHU AND THE SHAPES perform with an assortment of alternative instruments including a xylophone made of light bulbs, a Cloud Chamber made out of pyrex dishes and a modified guitar played with a hammer action called a Ďchuí. Bjork is said to be a big fan, and can probably identify with another act brave enough to take pop music into entirely uncharted territory. This is definitely one act not to be missed at R&V.

When a publication such as DJ Magazine says UK DJ DAMIAN LAZARUS ďÖ plays the best underground records in the world,Ē anyone who has a taste for late night madness, future dance floor classics and cutting edge new ideas will want to make sure they catch his set at RHYTHM & VINES. DAMIAN LAZARUS is one of a small number of DJís delivering a fresh sonic surge of forward thinking music and new dance floor perspectives. Best described as dirty and deep, DAMIAN LAZARUS delivers electronic house and much more.

Adding to the already jam-packed local line-up are Auckland indie gems POPSTRANGERS; Hot electro-pop new-comers DATíS THE CRUX; Singer ANNABEL FAY, alongside the stellar DJ additions of AROHA, ANDY VANN, HASZARI, GRIND and A.D.A.M.
