New Mix: Moods & Melodies

Well, here is a new mix from me: something compiled, executed and delivered, just because…

Since we kicked off our Attic project last year; the vast majority of my DJ’ing has been centred around a housier, disco-centric sound—for which Attic is known—for both, our own events and other ad hoc DJ bookings in around town.

Of course, we love our Attic sound, however; during this last little while—somewhat regrettably—I’ve not had much of an opportunity to sit back and relish in some other musical guilty pleasures. This particular line-up of deeper, melodic selections has allowed me to do just that. This is a very much an indulgent mix—let’s make no mistake about that.

Within, you’ll hear some newer pieces; you’ll hear some that I had stashed away for such an opportunity. Each track has moved me or has made me feel something.

It’s melodic, it’s moody and if I’ve done my job correctly; you’ll be taken on a journey for next 80 minutes or so.

I really hope you dig this one.

Live at Attic presents Laurence Guy Mix (10th March, 2018)

So, as the dust has settled on our recent Attic event headlined by Laurence Guy—our fourth instalment—I have just made available my recorded set from the evening.

I opened up shop for the first hour on this occasion, so, accordingly; this is very much a lower, slower effort—105 BPM upwards—though, in doing so, I did my best to retain a lot of the melodic elements that make up our “Attic sound”.

I really enjoyed putting this one together and kicking off the night in a method that I saw fit—and what an evening it turned out to be!

I hope you enjoy this one, all the same.

Comments and feedback—and if you really enjoy it, bookings—are always welcome! 😉

’till next time!

Live at S*A*S*H Mix (7th May, 2017) – with Andrew Fazzolari

Well, after a sizeable weekend last weekend, we can finally make available our recorded set from S*A*S*H By Day at Greenwood Hotel: Andrew Fazzolari—the other half of Attic—and I, opening the afternoon’s proceedings.

Of course, just two days earlier, we’d hosted our second Attic event—with Nachtbraker joining us as our very special guest—so it was fitting and incredibly enjoyable to share the bill with Maurits once again, in the wonderful sunny surroundings of North Sydney on a Sunday afternoon.

This particular mix is a deeper, slower affair: 110–114 BPM melodic goodness; and a fairly decent insight into our musical ethos, and the sound we’re pushing for our Attic brand—minus the disco flavours, of course.

Massive thanks to the S*A*S*H crew for the opportunity, and the hospitality over the course of the afternoon. We enjoyed ourselves immensely and your brand is an absolute credit to our Sydney scene.

So, with that, we hope you enjoy this one, wherever you find yourself…

Comments and feedback always welcome!

Foxlife Warm-Up Mix (December 2015)

Well, whilst a large portion of our Sydney scene were revelling in the frivolities at Subsonic, I had a thoroughly enjoyable time playing at SLYFOX’s weekly Saturday shindig, Foxlife!

Supporting the insanely talented, YokoO, alongside Sydney stalwarts, Jordan Deck and Mark Craven, I opened up shop and warmed up the evening — just the way I like to do so — playing some deeper, chunky, slung-out selections with a dabble of disco, for good measure!

The crowd was extremely accommodating and responsive, and really seemed to dig the early-evening deep ‘n’ disco vibes!

Unfortunately, I did not press record during the actual set, however; I retained a list of the tunes played, in the order they were played, and, as a result, here is the re-recording!

Hope you like it! 😉
