Scatter Scatter Tropical Disco is here to stay


Scatter Scatter is back this Saturday night, Feb. 1 – and will become a monthly fixture at Boney on the second Saturday of every month, starting March 8. If you have a taste for the tropics and a passion for the sounds of afro, cumbia, latin, soca and island disco, Scatter Scatter is the only place to be… Non-stop tropical disco from dusk ’til dawn.

This Saturday features live band Jaspora playing their soca-reggae-island sounds, along with Jumps (Cat Empire), DJ Manchild,  Julien MF Love, Medhi (fresh from the steamy tropics of Adelaide), some guy called Jimmy Caution and The Public Opinion Sound System.

The Public Opinion Sound System features DJ Manchild, MC 1/6, N’fa Jones & Future Roots. Turntables, live percussion, chants and rapping will take you on a trip though the tropical and tribal rhythms of Africa and South America, weaving through the hip-hop and beat driven sounds from the blocks of Melbourne.

Doors open around 9pm – band on stage around midnight. Arrive early if you please – or come late and dance until 7am!

Australia Day Soundclash

As the front man of Japan’s most adventurous jazz band SOIL & “PIMP” SESSIONS, Shacho is one of Japan’s most in demand DJs. Shacho has been DJing since 1996 and centres his selection in the same jazz/techno genre mixed with a bag of funk and hip hop. Uplifting dance floors and staging a performance rarely exhibited by contemporary DJs.  An experience not to be missed. Truly one of Japan’s great DJs.

Wednesday 8th January –> then the following night

Thursday 9th January 


Make sure you are on the dancefloor next to my freaky self as we get set to welcome in the new year the right way….

Also playing on Wednesday, are the band ZILLANOVA who have NEVER performed live before, just cut only what has been described as one of the best ever Aussie soul 45′s.

Thursday brings out one of the most fun live funk bands you will ever see – MMK! The last time they played they have influenced lots of local bands who have copied a few of their moves and Shin assures me they will be coming with some fresh ones this time. Supported by THE CACTUS CHANNEL this will be a super fun party! See you on the floor freaks!
