Dance Electronic

Needing little by the way of introduction, the undisputed heavyweights of NZ’s drum and bass scene State of Mind return for their second show at Totara Street.  Last time was a sell-out leaving fans hungry for more.

Joined by Auckland’s MC Twincam, plus local legends Hooky & Brutus Powers, expect a full on night of world class dnb.  This is sure to sell-out quick.
