Breaks Royale - Fri 13th May

Breaks Royale – we like to think it’s become a Wellington classic.

It was first created in 2001 by Belinda (a.k.a DJ B-Line) and Jonnie Sandwiches (then Jonnie Paradiso) as a party brand showcasing “the sexier side of Breakbeat and Drum & Bass” – this philosophy also became its catch phrase.

From the start is was unique – a Drum & Bass party suitable for the lounge environment of Paradiso Bar, the 4 part series becoming some of the venues most popular nights – The 1st BR at Paradiso – known for visits from Noise Control, Crowd Control and all the bar staff necking double shots of tequila, to roars from the crowd, when Sean made the 1st switch from Breaks to Drum & Bass! Yea!!! The continued series became infamous for bringing the very “boozy” usually anti-Courtney Place Cuba set down to the seedy cocktail lounge, and generally over filling every inch of the tiny room.

BR re-launched at the opening of Sandwiches with a two room philosophy with Hip Hop and Breaks in the Lounge and funky Drum & Bass in the Club. 4 more BR’s have all seen massive turn-outs and epic sets from the residents and guests alike. Some of the most memorable guest’s were Craig Richards from Fabric London, with a unique Lounge Breaks Set, MC Mana, B-Lo and always ex-pat Wellingtonian, Sean.

Breaks Royale returns with Royale Residents, (Wellington's favourite son and arguably one of Australasia's best DJs) Sean returning exclusively from Melbourne, and B-Line (the Queen B of New Zealand Drum & Bass) returning from Auckland. Alongside Club guests Ddog, Dappa, MC Ruggedtek & MC Kyla, and in the Lounge - Charlie Diamonds, Marek & Ayna.

This Friday the 13th of May 2005. At Sandwiches.
