Ferksta is in the House this week and will be playing alongside Ink Resident and Friday night stalwarts Greg Churchill and Bevan Keys. Greg is one of the finest djs over all genres to come out of New Zealand. Massively respected by all punters and fellow DJs alike, a Greg Churchill set is a thing of rare beauty.
Bevan Keys will open the night from 9pm. One of the classiest selectors around, and the other half of Nice 'n' Urlich, Bevan has long reached legend status and his perfect mixing of house, techno, disco and rare groove has been a huge factor in Ink's continued success.
9pm - 11pm Bevan Keys
11pm - 1am Ferksta
1am - 4am Greg Churchill
Free entry before 10pm.
$15 from 10pm.
Cocktail happy hour from 9pm-11pm with cheap and awesome concoctions created by Alex!aving now clocked over 20 years playing beats around the globe, not to mention bringing one of NZ’s most esteemed New Year's parties to life, it is somewhat understandable that the name precedes the man. Not that it makes the man any less recognisable, there is no mistaking those tie-dyed tees, nor the chunky, deep, progressive tunes he hurls from the decks.
John Paul Moss, aka Ferksta has been a mainstay in the electronic community for a Very Long Time, and it shows. He has been a purveyor of parties since way back, when raves were new and not yet the thing of myths and legends, and his event brand Velvet, of the late 90's and double 0's, would come to be seen as the setter of standards, a legend in its own right, and a heralder of things to come.
Those years of experience in putting it down can be thanked for the countless journeys they have provided. The driving basslines that should come with a warning, twisted psychedelic time-travels that teeter on the edges of sanity, euphoric soundscapes that touch upon those hard to find places inside, all only a mere taster of what Ferksta provides.
And now here he is, twenty years deep yet showing no signs of slowing down. In fact, if anything, he is picking up speed…
