Live at Foxlife Mix (10th June, 2017)

Here is a(nother) new mix from me: the recording from my set last weekend at the Queen’s Birthday long weekend edition of Foxlife, playing alongside Slyfox resident, Rabbit Taxi, Pip Dalton and Öncüm Yılmaz.

I was handed the closing duties on this occasion—a fresh change and a little different from the warm-up set times to which I’m generally used to!—and played right through ’till morning, finishing at around six o’clock.

This particular set features a combination of my preferred melodic, Attic-style disco-driven deep house, as well as some tougher, techier numbers and concludes on a floaty, uplifting note; just the way to bring in the morning for the weary heads on the dance floor!

Really hope you dig this one!

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…

Live at Peoples Club Mix (21st April, 2017)

Here is my recorded set from my recent Peoples Club debut at Goodbar, playing upstairs in the bar from ten ’till midnight, last Friday night.

The crowd — and, indeed, the bar staff — were incredibly receptive and seemed to be enjoying the musical offerings; as was I.

I played a bunch of my current favourites, and snuck in a couple from a selection of Peoples Club favourites, too — Andy Hart, Axel Boman, Fouk, Nachtbraker, Lay-Far and Damiano von Erckert, to name just a few.

Special thanks to the birthday boy, Davi and Nergal for the booking consideration, too. I had a blast playing for you guys, and your ‘People’, and I really hope that translates through this mix, too.

So, with that, I hope you enjoy this one!

Live at Apollo Arcade Mix, Vinyl Only (11th March, 2017)

Here is my set from Apollo Arcade at Secret Garden Bar in Enmore, from a few weeks back. This was an incredibly enjoyable set, and a wonderful opportunity to play a complete, two-hour, vinyl only set!

I’ve just managed to compile the tracklisting for this one — which you’ll appreciate takes a little longer for such a set! — and, for what it’s worth, I generally try and buy vinyl-only releases, too, so there might be some gems in here that might not otherwise be available.

Big love and many thanks to Matty Connor for the booking, the beers and the chats!

Hope you enjoy this one!

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.
