When I say Bounce. Bounce!
And, yes, those superior heroes of donk The Blackout Crew (pictured) will be just one of the acts lighting the blue touch paper on this night. This feisty bunch have scored huge club hits with the likes of ‘Bbbbbounce’, ‘Dialled’ and, of course, ‘Put a Donk on It’. Also lined up to whip the crowd into something approaching a frenzy will be DJ Hopper. This hard dance music producer and DJ from Sunderland has worked with the likes of Kelly Llorenna, Bounce Heaven, Northern Bounce, Clubland, Kelly Wilde and Darren Styles and has won a following from anyone interested in harder sounds. Elsewhere look out for MC Finchy, a real stalwart who has been at the forefront of the underground dance scene since 2004. He regularly plays across Europe – as well as Australia – and it’s great to welcome him back to the north-east.
