Pt. 2 of the worldwide transglobal international mental illness one night series "Trouble in Paradise" rolls on with Trist, Azuki and 6ft representing for Hip Hop and blunted beatery, with breaksters Demus and Jamie Newman following on, and Data:bass denizens Culprit, State of Mind and Dan P bringing up the bottom end for the Drum'n Bass mob.
Last week saw breaks producer Asphalt and DJ Restless1 proving Data:bass ought not sleep on the Nu Skool, while chin stroking leftfielders, raving tourists and naughty schoolgirls mingled with the usual data:bass lurkers. Reports of an alleged beetroot burger being consumed on or near the premises are unsubstantiated.
So get this: 8 hours of full spectrum subterranean beats, DJ's and live producers ; free CD featuring 80 minutes of exclusive local downbeats, breakbeats and D'n B; and believe it when I say hook ups to the FREE BREAKFAST at 6am! And it's $5. The lunatics are the ones who won't be at mental illness!

Mental Illness @ Paradise Bar 2003/2004
MENTAL ILLNESS was a weekly night designed to become an outlet for the DATA:BASS DJ's and producers to explore other sides of the electronic/ turntable spectrum with a real leftfield sensibility.
With MENTAL ILLNESS we promote diversity as the new purism. The general concept is that beyond the boundaries of genre there can be a genuine appreciation for evocative and provocative tunes wether commercial, experimental, emotional or absurd, across the full spectrum of turntable based genres - our only exception being format Dance music which we hear enough of anyway.
PRESENTS . . .
The first Transgression that occured on June 21 2003 was so stupidly successful that HQ dynamo DJ Fiction is anticipating a swift return, leading the charge out of the clubs and into the suburban wilds for full on, no holds barred, barf'n booze Drum'n Bass at it's barnstorming best. Only the biggest and baddest anthems will be relentlessly rinsed for the benefit of full capacity crowds in locations throughout the East Coast Bays of the North Shore. Data:bass have got it locked down with sweet security (no glass in the gig) but wear sensible shoes and be ready for a wild night of stonking drum'n bass served up with a Hip Hop entree.
