It’s going to be a busy Summer. Gigs comin’ outta our ears; too much noise, too much babble, plenty of style, not enough content.

I CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S NOT PHAT sets out to change all that. A celebration of the true Auckland electronic underground, it marks Beautiful Music’s fifth birthday in style, and proudly presents a selection of artists who have grown and become accomplished recording acts and djs while Beaut Music has puttered on, plying and supporting their artistry.

Taking place in two separate zones under the one Galatos roof, I CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S NOT PHAT is a resounding (come on Auckland, not every bloody gig need be house, house and more house!) Instead, it’s a celebration of the diversity and quality of intelligent electronic music coming out of our fair city, rigged up to sound like a dream.

Top recording artists Dooblong Tongdra, International Observer and SJD have all had fabulous albums released this year to oodles of acclaim, and each act will be taking their art a step further for this special event with new material worked up for the occasion.

The lineup of DJs is similarly superb, from perennial taste-maker Stinky Jim to the luscious grooves of DJ Amanda Evans, the minimal techno scapes of Warm Jet, the electro madness of Reeky Mutton, the power fusion of Switch Doctors, the superior slanted hip-hop of DJ Sensei, the wacky Ninja-style free-flowing DJ Museical... and more!

If you only go to one gig this year, make it this one for an all-enveloping experience of Auckland electronica at its peak.

And there’s more!!! Yes, it’s special offer time!!!

The Dimmer gig starts earlier and finishes before I Can’t Believe It’s Not Phatt really gets underway. Buy tickets to BOTH GIGS and Beautiful Music will give you an instant 15% discount off the following fabulous cds:

* Dooblong Tongdra - Discontinued
* SJD - Lost Soul Music
* International Observer - Seen

You know it makes sense.
