Wobble and Heavy Innit are proud to announce, for the first time performing at Wobble and in Australia, in conjunction with Melbourne Music Week, DJ MADD. Unless, you were particularly in the know, you could be forgiven for thinking DJ Madd had exploded onto the underground music scene from nowhere. With a background in D&B and a love of all things bass-related, Hungarian-born Peter Simon gravitated towards the low-end sonics of Dubstep in 2008, with early releases on the well-respected Boka Records and the reggae-vibed War series of white labels. In 2009 he caught the ear of those behind the fledgling Black Box imprint, and together artist & label have gone to become recognised as leaders in the Dubstep scene. Furthermore, he has released 12″s on Osiris Music and Wheel & Deal, enjoying regular play from Rinse and BBC Radio DJs. With a killer lineup this is one party not to be missed. Deep, Dark and Heavy vibes, all powered by Heartical Hi Fi Soundsystem.
