Yacht Club DJs Announce ‘Batten Down The Hatches’ Tour

Written by Daniel Clarke on March 16, 2010

Crowd-pleasing mash-up duo the Yacht Club DJs are back after a string of manic music festival performances.

Heralded the saviours of the mash-up genre, this March the pair will emerge from playing underground club gigs and take their rightful place behind the decks in some of Australia’s foremost music venues. Prepare to storm the stage as the Yacht Club DJs tear apart your favourite songs and smash them back together into a cleverly crafted remix. And of course, a Yacht Club DJs show would not be complete without on-stage nudity, crowd invasions, dancing on the decks and wild water sports, including riding the waves of the crowd

Ready to join the party is Brisbane monster duo DZ and young indie rockers Howl.

With a sound likened to The Bronx meets DFA 1979, DZ have turned heads with their refreshingly palatable gritty indie sound. Triple J Unearthed High winners Howl have left the classroom, played summer festivals all over the country and released their debut EP, with their single Blackout receiving high rotation on Triple J. The fellow Ballarat act will promote their self-titled EP on the Batten Down the Hatches Tour.
