As summer rolls on Smirnoff Experience’s brand new Area 21 popped up once again recently, this time at Kiss My Grass in Melbourne on the Australia Day long weekend. Having now appeared at Summadayze and Summafieldayze, Area 21 is gaining quite the reputation, with headline DJs playing unexpected sets away from the mainstage… and away from their known style. Recorded at the event on the day, tune in to the sounds of Bexta!

About Mark James

With over 15 years experience as a DJ and as one of Australia’s most progressive promoters (head of Future Entertainment – the name behind Summadayze, Future Music Festival and more), Mark James is a name synonymous with dance music in Australia since its beginning. Since its highly anticipated general release on January 28, 2008, Mark James’ latest dancefloor bomb ‘I Want You (feat. Hamish)’ has started taking the nation’s charts, download sites and floors by storm. After sitting proudly on top of the ARIA Dance Chart in the coveted #1 slot for a massive four weeks over the notoriously competitive Christmas/New Year holiday period, this classic ‘hands in the air’ electro weapon has rocked major festivals all Summer long and is still doing the business.

About Derek{K}

While Derek{K} spends most of his time grounded behind the decks, his career is hitting some soaring highs and continues to climb. Labeled “one of the best young talents coming up the international ranks” by Marshall Jefferson, Derek attacks the decks harder than Mike Tyson attacks an earlobe. Known for blending house and electro, Derek’s sound is big, bold, and never fails to burn up the room. Mixing driving beats with smooth tracks, Derek describes his sound as “tough enough for the boys and sexy enough for the girls”.

The 2nd track is "Finally" by Kings of Tomorrow. It was on the Ministry of Sound Annual 2002; as were a few of the tracks played in this set.
