Bump - Get Your Groove On Baby!

The Matterhorn in association with Heineken presents

BUMP an R'n'B Joint

Join the selectors Vee, Raw and Koa for a progressive night of Hip Hop, R'n'B and 2-step (or UK Garage).

Bump offers a free of charge Matterhorn gardens dance space on Saturday the 16th of December... sort of an urban Xmas warm up.

Do you even know what 2-step is? Well it's the sound of the UK summer, now hitting NZL in time for our summer. Think the blackness of early jungle, the soulful and sexy sounds of American R'n'B, teamed with the bleeps and beats made popular by drum and bass. Team it up and you have the very human sound of 2-step.

2-Step uses the original sounds of it's makers such as Wookie and MJ Cole, but also calls on the dance classics of yester-year such as Soul to Soul, for interesting remixes, opening up these old classics for new dancefloor generations. You are gonna love it!

The 2-step will be warmed into by Vee and Raw who will showcase the sexiest, most soulful tunes in hip hop and R'n'B for your grooving pleasure. All the love happens at BUMP. Get your urban grooves on at BUMP on Saturday 16th of December 2000 at The Matterhorn Gardens.
