MAIN STAGE SATURDAY
Mixing live music, turntables and guest MCs, Resin Dogs produce a mash up of sounds; modern hip hop is drenched with breakbeat, dance hall, dub and funk. In the revolutionary spirit of hip hop they have created their own style. Resin Dogs raw and gritty fusion of dance and hip hop ignited early shows at Ric’s and The Zoo, in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley. Venues filled and crowds continued to swell as the punters snapped up huge quantities of their early independent releases.
Perennial festival favourites they have performed at all major Australian music events – Splendour in the Grass, Falls Festival, Byron Bay Blues & Roots, Meredith Music Festival, Livid, Good Vibrations, Homebake, Woodford Folk Festival, Vibes on a Summer’s Day and have proudly hit the stage at Big Day Out for seven years. Amid the Aussie festivals and tours Resin Dogs have toured nationally with international artists Black Eyed Peas, Beastie Boys, Run DMC, Ozomatli, Kenny Dope, Roots Manuva and Grandmaster Flash. In 2004 and 05 the Resin Dogs took their sounds overseas with sell-out shows at some of the UK’s hottest clubs, showcases in the United States and performances at top European music festivals – Womad Reading UK, Head Lined the Wan 2 Stage at the Sziget Festival in Hungary and Head lined Main stage at the Colours Of Ostrava in the Czech Republic.
