268 Karangahape Road, Auckland




InkCoherent – Fri 14th May

Beginning as a small party in an old theatre, THE ARC (Auckland Renewal Collective) soon began pushing the boundaries and sounds that were available in Auckland. From live art, Skateboarding, dancing and a melting pot of worldwide sounds, the small parties soon transformed into capacity dance floors, straining the venues capacities and the minds of those who came to witness a new age unfolding in downtown.

Focussed on blending scenes and breaking down the walls that held each clique in their own place, THE ARC has held art exhibitions, played festivals and supported international acts such as Raekwon, Ghostface, Flying Lotus and Gaslamp Killer.

The team members are DJ Scratch 22, DJ Paydirt, and MC Legal Money Mike. The Live show consists of four turntables, two laptops, a drum pad, some of the best freestyle rhyming NZ has to offer, and a crazy high energy performance. While loosely based in Hiphop, all three have broad musical tastes and the average ARC set musically travels all over the globe with cutting edge Dancehall, Kwaito & Kuduro, Baltimore Club, Electro, Rock, and classic B-Boy Funk & Breakbeats.

It is this mentality that keeps the group moving forward in the realms of events,  publishing, production, radio, exhibitions and of course music.

Heavyweight support from Dj’s Bevan Keys, Soane & Defcon 1
