The cooler autumn days recently have been betrayed by a last blast of summer, bringing us some hot nights, though we’re not complaining. Stoked on Sundays’ DJs will take any excuse to play some cool tunes long into the evening. This week, we welcome to the turntables a fine Brisbane spinner in Benn Hopkins, an a qualified party starter and reliable hand across the city’s nightspots.
From introducing international tourists each week to holding his own at peak time, Benn has a level head behind the decks and delivers quality tunes in any situation. Benn is at least partially responsible shaping the sound here in Brisbane, from slow and groovy r’n’b jams to deep instrumental hip hop, upbeat funky breaks and soulful deep house beats.
Benn’s resume highlights appearances at venues such as Barsoma, Laruche, Sundae, and Zuri. Most recently though, Benn has been responsible for programming the sexy sound policy at Bacchus, and has led to him taking responsibility for international clubbing brand Hed Kandi’s presence in the city.
Indeed the sophisticated surrounds of Stokehouse suits Benn’s soulful sensibilities, and the Stoked on Sundays crew are pleased to welcome Benn to the venue. Sweet, sexy chilled out lounge and house beats will soundtrack our afternoon, and of course the Stokehouse bartenders will be on hand to take care of libations, all set to the impressive backdrop of the city. See you by the river this Sunday at Stokehouse.
