Philadelphia had its day with Hollertronix, and in Wellington City the spirit of extreme buck wild party vibes lives on with Fried Chicken Sound System (aka FCSS), a party where you're guaranteed to hear your favourite tunes, discover some new favourite tunes and worst case scenario wake up the next day in a bus shelter with no recollection of your night out.
Formed in 2003 by DDog and Kava, FCSS set to sea with a short stint at Watkins Bar, then sailed through Curve Bar and Sandwiches Nightclub, picking up an extra ship-hand called Marek along the way before dropping anchor at Cuba Street's Good Luck bar, where the party exploded into monster with a reputation for lines of punters cuing around the block.
Grounded in classic party Hip-Hop, the FCSS navy originally specialised in different areas of music and dj approaches. Over time though, as the party musically traversed Dancehall, Bmore, Electro, Bassline and Favela Funk, DDog, Kava and Marek's collective musical vision become shared and concise. As an equation, FCSS equals four to the floor club music with strong Hip-Hop, Crunk and Mashup undertones; or as we in the industry fondly refer to it – The motherfuckin jumpoff!
These days FCSS are patched up with Red Bull, Vice Magazine, Jagermeister, Good as Gold, W.E.S.C and Neon Sleep, and regularly tear up nightclubs outside of Wellington in Auckland, Wanaka and Queenstown.
Looking to take their stage and lighting show to the next level, FCSS recently began holding parties at Wellington's San Francisco Bath House, pulling 400+ to their last audio visual extravaganza.
Drawing influences from the likes of The Wu-Tang Clan, Cash Money Records, DJ Skitz & Rodney P, The Scratch Perverts, Diplo and Fool's Gold Records, FCSS deliver one of the most untouchable and internationally current 'party vibes' club experiences in New Zealand, and they want to see you at the bar at their next party.
