Live at Attic presents Ethyène (11th May, 2019)

It’s not every day you have the opportunity to warm-up for your favourite artist… I was that lucky a few weeks back.

We were fortunate to welcome Ethyène to our Attic fold as part of his very first Australian tour. Ethyène’s sample-driven house and disco original tracks, remixes and edits have formed a significant part of our collections—and, indeed, our Attic sets!—over the last couple of years. As far as I’m concerned; it really doesn’t get much better…

Accordingly, this was a set that consumed a lot of thought, emotion, plenty of nerves and significant effort—it’s one I hold dear.

With the man himself listening intently just a few metres away and a dance-floor building; the stage was set at Harpoon Harry—and here is the result…

She’s a lower, slower, affair, with plenty of vinyl included.

Hope you like it as much! 😉

Live at Attic presents Bellaire (16th February, 2019)

We’ve been pretty busy over the last couple of months—more bookings, more dates and subsequently, more recorded mixes!

This is one that I really enjoyed putting together and executing. For context, Andrew and I had spent the afternoon cruising Sydney Harbour—literally!—supporting Bellaire at the debut Anchor Events event. That mix is actually available here: https://soundcloud.com/andrewfazzolari/live_at_anchor_2019

After jumping off the cruise—again, in the literal sense—we set things up at Harpoon Harry for our Attic evening shindig, eagerly awaiting Bellaire‘s arrival…

This was my warm-up effort—lower, slower, but maintaining some “funk” and the disco edge, and I hope you like it!

A bunch of the usual suspects are included: Folamour, Late Nite Tuff Guy, Dirtytwo, etc. on some of our favourite labels, Moonrise Hill Material, Razor-N-Tape, Editorial Records, SlothBoogie, etc.

Stay locked for more Attic action real soon, too!

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!

Live at Attic Launch Night featuring Fouk!

Well, what a truly magical night that was! We’re truly pleased to have brought you our first — of hopefully, many — Attic events and will reflect on this one with big smiles for a long, long time!

Thank you to everyone who came out and supported us — there were positive vibes right throughout the place from start-to-finish, and everyone in attendance was incredibly complimentary.

To see a project we’ve envisioned and carefully-crafted over some time — whilst throwing our blood and sweat into it in the process! — turn into something so wonderful leaves us with an enormous sense of satisfaction.

Fittingly, everyone brought their ‘A’ game musically:

To the Rabbit : mate, we couldn’t have asked for anything more. You’re a true gentleman of the scene. The opening set of any given night can present a tricky scenario and is absolutely critical, but you nailed it — even from the first sample, “No, I’m just some kind of sick idiot who’s seen too many young men die…” Just superb!

To Hans and Daniel (Fouk​): Well, what can we say?! Everyone who witnessed the almost three-hour journey can attest that they were present for something very, very special, indeed.

As well as being talented producers, it’s refreshing to know that you’re seasoned and highly-accomplished technicians behind the 1’s and 2’s. You took our guests on a melodic journey and they remained with you for the long haul and danced the night away.

A special thanks also to Doris​, Maria​ and Mike for your contributions and assistance throughout the night. This is very much a family affair, and we couldn’t have done it without you. A special mention to Andreas​, too!

We’ll also have some photos, video and music from the night coming very shortly, too, so keep your eyes peeled for that!

So, with that, here is my recorded set from the evening. I played after Rabbit Taxi and right before Fouk. The crowd response was exceptional, and seeing it all build up in anticipation four our headline act was highly satisfying!

We’ll be back at it again very soon, so stay tuned for further announcements and dates! 😉

Thanks again, everyone. It’s been our absolute pleasure.
