Introducing Break-Phunk, a new night for the cellar bar showcasing the best in Trap, Hiphop, Breakbeat, Electro Swing, electro and Ghetto Funk from none other than cheeky local boy DJ; Blatant-Lee-Sly. Blatantl-Lee-Sly has had over 10 years experience Djing and has been involved in several different music genres and styles. Knowing what makes dance-floor tick and being technically slick on the ones' and twos'; he's a man that certainly knows his craft.Incorporating a mash up of turntablist skillz and drum breaks that thump harder than melon being smashed with a cricket bat; Blatant-Lee-Sly’s unpredictable playing style will leave you ‘all danced out’ as he splices well known mash ups with dance-floor gems and allows them to collide with boogie driven bass lines, catchy synth melodies and pure dirt . This will hype up the cellar bar dance floor as never seen before and will confirm to why it is worth letting that Friday feeling carry you to café Rene and stay till the very last tune. Be sure to check this night out!!!
