The Lowdown on NARC

Narc returns to New Zealand for his debut appearance for Meltdown, following up his visit for Prototype in 2010. For those not familiar with his work, Narc writes and produces his own material that fits best into the harder end of hard house / NRG . As one half of the Piston Records team, his aim is to deliver complex, brutal and energetic music. He has appeared on record and digital labels such as Electrolysis, Arktik, Trauma Trax, Mad Cow, Passion, Volatile, ‘Orrible Noize , Deck Fuel and many more. After spending many hours in the studio, Narc is ready to unleash his dark and twisted sounds on Auckland once again.

The Lowdown on Butcher Boy (OMEGA 3)…

Butcher Boy making a name as a DJ in the era that defined the popular parties in London UK, quickly transcended into a multitude of dance events with the name Butcher Boy on the flyers. DJing at the biggest venues London had to offer and playing alongside the big names in Hard House. Better known for his producing under the names of Omega 3, Butcher Boy has over 50 release’s under his belt, and many cd combinations, which where signed to the biggest labels hard house has to offer: Tidy, Vicious Circle, Tonka, Octane, Tinrib, Deprivation, Rave On, Toolbox, Insomniacs, Spinball, and of course this own very successful imprint Carbon Recordings.
Expect proper hard house & hard uplifting nrg!

The Lowdown on Manik…

Manik having been in the game now for 8 years has risen to the top fold of NZ Hard Dance producers, and gained an international rep, for producing funk and melody driven dance floor anthems, like ‘Lucid’ ‘Skywalker’’ Sedate Me’ and over 100 releases through the years, he’s still going strong.
Having toured Aussie in 2010 and with fresh tours booked for 2012, Manik has cemented himself as a regular in the Aussie scene, head lining a number of gig’s in Adelaide, Melbourne and Brisbane.
With Manik at the helm, Meltdown has been a lynch pin in the Auckland’s hard dance scene, bringing you 13 consecutive sold out parties, full of unique proper Hard House. Meltdown is renowned for selecting quality local DJs, and has brought you one hell of a line-up to remember, join us and celebrate our 4th birthday.
