The two were obviously aware of their success in the charts, playing a mix of some of their latest and greatest hits, including a remix of Disclosure’s White Noise or, their work on the latest release from Kid Kenobi’s label.

Well, what better way to celebrate International Star Wars day than having Surecut Kids 'headlining' (they were the penultimate act) their first show within Perth's very own home of the underground since the beginning of the year? 2013 has thus far has been huge for the dynamic DJing duo, with a couple of their newly released singles making waves on the ARIA charts, plus completing a successful national tour involving more sweaty dancefloors than you could poke a stick at. The gentlemen are better than most in their profession at showcasing their amazing ability to party long into the morning and as such, waves of enthusiastic clubbers were pouring into the venue all night. Wearing droid head-pieces, Dead Easy provided the opening set of beats from 11 o'clock, easing into the night with some punchy tunes to familiarise the modest amount of people in the venue with the dancefloor. Bezwun's abrupt appearance come the conclusion of DE's set, saw the music style shift significantly, opting for a more progressive and atmospheric approach, all the while keeping the bass at near ear-splitting levels. Thankfully, the initial awkwardness on the dancefloor was lifted and the crowd began to find their stride.

Armed with two turntables and an MPC, Surecut Kids took to the deck. By then it was impossible to move within the confines of the D-floor, and this suited the enthusiastic couple perfectly, the duo taking turns between mixing, scratching and drumming on the MPC all the while hyping up the crowd with the mic. The two were obviously aware of their success in the charts, playing a mix of some of their latest and greatest hits, including a remix of Disclosure's White Noise or, their work on the latest release from Kid Kenobi's label; Klub Kids pres. Trap Bombs Volume 1. A roar of recognition was sounded by the audience when the guys played their remixes of Koolism's Lovely and Sampology's Piggy Bank, but the duo's latest original release Yeah! was the biggest testament to the crowd's love of the Kids over this side of the country. Black & Blunt continued the party until the sun came up in what was yet another fantastic night in club Ambar, and we'll all be waiting with bated breath for the boys to come back and test out the waters in the club's new location.
