Glitch the System:

Glitch the System is a new night dedicated to bringing you the freshest Glitch Hop from around the globe. For those unfamiliar with this term it is the name given to an new and emerging style of club bass music that infuses Hip Hop with fresh new production techniques drawing from Dubstep and DnB, but also bringing It's own unique brand of funk and cleverness. It has the attitude and swagger of Hip Hop as well as incorporating other styles such as Reggae and Rock with the face melting bass drops of DnB and Dubstep. As Hip Hop has no specific tempo neither does Glitch Hop and that allows the music to move around in ways that no other club music can, and when played by a skilled Dj ( turntabalist ) it makes for a killer club night, a night not to be missed!


A scrumptious, glitch laden, bass dolloping, luscious soundscape brooding world sounds like fun right? Well this is precisely the musical world created by electronic producer and performer Opiuo.

Originally from a small town deep in the New Zealand countryside, Opiuo now resides in the pimp hustle back streets of Melbourne Australia, where he has gone about building an international reputation for his extremely original, party fuelling creations. Playing live at major festivals, headlining club nights, and touring extensively in front of sold out crowds all across the USA, Canada, and Australasia.

Favouring fun n funk fuelled body shaking sonic manipulations, the Opiuo sound is being included in DJ sets from some of the worlds most respected, from Z-Trip to Bassnectar, KraftyKuts to Tipper and everyone in between. His music has featured in films, documentaries, television series, and high profile radio stations throughout the globe. 2010 even saw him selected to open for MC Hammer at a private Google party. Quite literally rocking ear holes in every corner of the globe.

His music has dominated digital download charts, with his debut full length release "Slurp And Giggle" being nominated for Best Dance / Electronic Release at the Australian Independent Music Awards, reaching number 10 on iTunes, and was the most downloaded album for 2010 on His releases as singles have spent time at #1 on for Breaks, Electronica, Dubstep, and even Chillout.

2011 sees Opiuo touring the world once again, releasing his brand of sonic manipulations to a hugely positive response, and there's no sign of his slowing down anytime soon…
