Equally rooted in gospel, soul and hip-hop, 112 was the first and most successful urban vocal group to emerge from Sean ‘Puffy’ Combs’ Bad Boy Records roster. Not only was the group’s eponymous 1996 debut popular, but the group could be heard on records by Bad Boy artists such as Puff Daddy. Unlike most artists on Bad Boy, 112’s image was clean, pure and wholesome, which helped the group cross over to a more mainstream audience. The four members of 112 – Marvin, Daron, Q and Mike – met each other while attending high school in Atlanta, Georgia. Combs signed on as the executive producer of 112’s eponymous debut album, which featured songs the group co-wrote with such professional songwriters as: Stevie J, Wayna Morris of Boyz II Men, and Combs himself. ‘Only You,’ the group’s debut single, was released in the summer of 1996 and climbed to number three on the R&B charts, peaking at number 13 on the pop charts. 112 was released in late 1996 and it steadily worked its way to gold status as the group’s second single, ‘Come Seem Me,’ reached number 15 on the R&B charts. Room 112 followed in 1998 and Part III was issuedthree years later.

British India emerged from the underbelly of Melbourne’s independent music scene to take Australia by storm in July 2007 with their acclaimed independent debut album ‘Guillotine’. With support from triple J radio their songs ‘Black & White Radio’ & ‘Tie Up My Hands’ became arm-raising, air-punching anthems at venues and festivals across the country. British India developed a reputation for their explosive live shows and extensive touring. They took out the 2007 AIR Award for Best New Independent Artist.

One year later the band released their second album ‘Thieves’. Thieves debuted at No 5 in the ARIA Top 10 and demonstrated the band’s growth, in both popularity and as songwriters ‘Thieves’ featured the foot-stomping single ‘I Said I’m Sorry,’ and earned the boys their first ARIA Award nomination.

The band released their 3rd album ‘Avalanche’ in 2010. Once again achieving an ARIA Top 10 debut. Avalanche featured one of their most popular songs ‘Vanilla’

Sean Kingston LIVE at Discovery Darwin

Nov 16 - 2017

Discovery Darwin & LUCKY URBN Proudly present




Dedicating nearly his entire life to music and achieving superstardom when he was just 17, Sean Kingston has amassed an untold amount of experience as a singer/songwriter over the years. On his third-full length album Back 2 Life, the 23-year-old builds on that experience by greatly expanding his songwriting role, nixing the multi-producer approach of his last release, and pushing for a fresh new sound. Like his 2007 self-titled debut (featuring the double-platinum breakout hit “Beautiful Girls”) and sophomore album Tomorrow (featuring the smash singles “Fire Burning” and “Face Drop”), Back 2 Life fuses reggae, hip-hop, R&B, and electro to create melody-soaked pop. But on Back 2 Life, the singer/songwriter blends his newly strengthened vocals with fiercely inventive effects and hard-hitting live instrumentation—a formula that’s yielded his most passionately inspired work to date.

“This album’s a really honest reflection of where I’m at in my life right now,” says Kingston. “I’m proud that it shows everything, because it shows my growth too.” Teaming up with Jonathan “J.R.” Rotem, Red One (who produced “Fire Burning”) and new producers Nic Nac, Kingston found himself tapping into his musical roots like never before on Back 2 Life. “On this album I felt the need to get back to my culture,” says Kingston, who was born in Miami but moved to Jamaica when he was seven. “It’s much more organic than anything I’ve done before—the music’s real and it hits you on a gut level.”

Indeed, Back 2 Life emerges as Kingston’s most richly eclectic and ambitious album so far. On the album’s title track “Back 2 Life (Live It Up),” for instance, Kingston samples the vocals from the Soul II Soul classic of the same name and twists the lyrics into a triumphant call to action. Sweeping and celebratory, the song mixes pummeling beats with chilling synth effects and Kingston’s fearless assertion that “what won’t kill me makes me stronger.” After a masterful guest rap from T.I., “Back 2 Life (Live It Up)” dissolves into a stripped-down pairing of sampled vocals and delicate piano work that’s both stark and stunning.

Although Kingston keeps up that heady intensity throughout Back 2 Life, many of the tracks are built on party-ready hooks, such as his summer smash “Beat It.” The track featuring Kingston’s crew Chris Brown and Wiz Khalifa, merges breezy melodies and bass-powered beats in a deadly catchy club jam that quickly landed the track on the Billboard Hot 100 chart upon its release this past spring. Bouncy and hip-swinging, “Bomba” combines flamenco-flavored acoustic guitars, soaring vocals, and pounding live percussion in the sonic equivalent of some epic beach party. “Seasonal Love” supercharges old-school R&B with dreamy synth, sultry beats, and a fiery guest verse from Wale, while “Shotta Luv” pairs ferocious guest-rapping from 2 Chainz with a velvety-smooth groove. And on the unstoppable post-breakup anthem “Save One for Me,” Kingston tells off the girl who broke his heart and then finds his own sweet revenge on the dancefloor.

All throughout Back 2 Life, Kingston boldly proves how far he’s come since he first began recording songs on the tiny personal studio his mother bought him when he was 11-years-old. Back then, Kingston would whip up his own reggae-pop hybrids and perform them local block parties and talent shows in Miami (to which he returned after spending several years living with his family in Ocho Rios, Jamaica). But when his mother was convicted of tax evasion and bank fraud and sent to federal prison, the 15-year-old Kingston had to put his music dreams on temporary hold.

After a brief period of homelessness, Kingston began bouncing around the homes of his friends and relatives and ultimately landed a lawn-mowing job to earn the money he needed to make a demo. Thanks largely to Kingston’s dogged persistence in pursuing every hit-making producer he could find online, that demo ended up getting him signed to Rotem’s then-newly-launched label Beluga Heights in 2006—a deal quickly followed by a joint contract with Epic Records and the release of a debut album that went on to sell more than a million copies worldwide and spawn three back-to-back Top 10 singles.

Kingston released his follow-up album Tomorrow in 2009, then—in May 2011—suffered a devastating accident while jet skiing in Miami Beach. After spending nearly a month in the hospital and undergoing two emergency open-heart surgeries to repair a torn aorta, Kingston two months to heal—and start plotting his return to the studio. “I couldn’t go anywhere while I was recovering, so I spent all my time writing songs and listening to beats,” recalls Kingston. “All I wanted was to get back to doing music, which is what I’ve been devoting my life to since I was eight-years-old.”

With a voracious appetite for music including “everything from Taylor Swift to Ne-Yo to Musiq Soulchild to Paramore”—as well as a deep reverence for artists like Bob Marley, Outkast, and Lauryn Hill—Kingston has recently broadened his musical role by serving as a songwriter for such performers as Jason Derulo (“What Ya Say”) and Iyaz (“Replay”) and discovering new musical talents (including Iyaz, whom Kingston found online and signed to his Time Is Money Entertainment label). Still, having sold more than 12.5 million tracks to date, Kingston’s top priority is continually elevating his own music into new and unexpected territory. “A lot’s happened over the past few years—I’ve traveled the world and had relationships and dealt with breakups, so I’m singing from the heart about things that I actually went through,” says Kingston. In capturing those experiences on Back 2 Life, he adds, his main ambition was to keep positive. “I knew I needed to address some difficult things on the album, but my goal was to do it in an upbeat sort of way,” says Kingston. “So the songs on Back 2 Life are catchy and uptempo and everyone can have a great time to them—but at the same there’s no doubt that it’s all the way real.”

Pendulum DJ SET

Jul 27 - 2017

Discovery Darwin & Falcona Presents




Pendulum formed in their home-town of Perth (Western Australia) in 2002, when producers Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen teamed up with acclaimed local DJ Paul ‘Elhornet’ Harding. While their individual formative roots ranged from producing drum & bass, breakbeat and hardcore, to playing in metal and punk bands, their comparable talents proved an unstoppable force when they managed to single-handedly conquer the world of drum & bass in their first 12 months together.

“We want our music to be an escape. While technology continues to constantly advance production techniques and (arguably) sound quality, something has been lost in the process – that original sense of self-escape, the idea of leaving yourself open to experience something you don’t necessarily find in every-day life. That was the energy we picked up on and liked about electronic music when we first got into it. It felt like the same energy found with bands like Led Zeppelin and even The Beatles, and still occasionally today with bands like Tool, The Mars Volta, Queens Of The Stone Age and others.

To us, it made perfect sense to combine the best of both worlds, but it had to be done in a way that didn’t make it sound obvious. In the last 10 years you’ve had all these bands that tried to cross the bridge by recruiting a turntablist / using a synthesizer on their new single, or electronic artists who just threw an obvious guitar sample into a tune…but eventually it just came across as a gimmick or a bit cheesy. We thought we’d try and do it properly, because to us it still hasn’t been done right and theres a lot of room for exploration.

If you turn on the radio today you’ll hear 20 tracks in a row describing someone’s every-day life, or songs with a one-line catchphrase chorus about shaking your ass in the club – the production is usually great but when you look deeper, there’s nothing behind it…it doesn’t offer you anything past its face value. We want to hear something different and exciting, but the material we want to hear isn’t getting made. Thats why we spend nearly every waking moment trying to create music that takes you out of this universe – for ourselves and anyone else who wants to listen.”

HORRORSHOW – Bardo State Tour

Jul 21 - 2017


Horrorshow jump on a plane and head to Darwin for their biggest show to date.

“This is my time, I’m hitting my stride” – My Time (track one off Bardo State)

Horrorshow have spent almost a decade selling out tours and racking up award nominations – but it’s the fan-driven nature of their success that defines their widespread appeal – there is a deep affection and loyalty that is particularly unique. ‘Bardo State’ is their third album to chart in the ARIA top 5 in the last 4 years (including One Day’s Mainline).

Following their newly announced appearance at landmark US hip hop festival SoundSet, Horrorshow will be taking in capital cities and regional centres around Australia, bringing NZ’s world renowned star DAVID DALLAS and the buzzing young TURQUOISE PRINCE along for the ride. With last years ‘If You Know What I Mean Tour’ selling out across the board well in advance, this will be a hot ticket.
