Babao (Bra, N.A.S.A.)
Herman Prime (Plauge)
Plauge Boyz kohtaa heinäkuun Off The Hookeissa jälleen Rio De Janeirolaisen dj:n, Dj Babaon. Dalion tutustui viime keväisellä Brasilian matkallaan tähän mukavaan mieheen kaupungissa järjestetyssä dj-konferenssissä. Euroopan kiertue natsasi, ja nyt saamme mm. N.A.S.A.-projekstissa vaikuttaneen Babzin myös Tampereelle!
