Boom Boom Bean Selecta is the feline DJ’ing Alter-ego of street artist Leonie Rhodes. They bring decades of international raving experience to the Australian dance floor. Mixing creatively, intuitively, and intellectually, BBBS creates tightly mixed dance floor experiences across 4 decks. Bean Selecta grew up in South East London and a child of the Jungle movement, they witnessed the birth of Breaks, Dubstep, Garage, Drum and Bass and the culturally transformative power of the House music generation.

Bean Selecta’s sets are laden with heavy bass lines, serious London grit, groove, nostalgia and radical storylines. Their musical and event production work attempts to dissolve the boundaries between performance art and underground rave culture and loosen the performer and audience divide. Bean Selecta collaborates with musicians, projection artists, digital painters, graffiti writers, performance artists, Butoh practitioners and contemporary dancers and encourages participation of the audience to try to create experience’s of mutual and collective joy.
