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 Sly Fridays Mix (8th July, 2016)

Well, here is my recorded set from ‘Sly Fridays’ on Friday night — well, Saturday morning, to be precise — hosted at ‘Slyfox’ in Newtown. I played the closing set of the night: from 3 AM, right until closing time at six.

Without too much of an idea of what I was going to play; I threw caution to the wind a bit and pulled out a selection of disco, house, some chunkier, deeper drum-driven stuff and pulled it right back towards the end finishing on an uplifting tip — much to the delight of some weary punters!

In particular, I wanted to send out special thanks to Jackson Winter the mastermind of this Friday shindig: firstly, for booking me, and for the extended three-hour slot, which really gave me a chance to stretch the legs musically and rip out some wax that has been burning holes in my record box, itching for the right forum to play!

You have an excellent product in this night — choosing perfectly appropriate selectors, bringing deeper, and sometimes eclectic, vibes right throughout the evening ’till late. It really shows that the tunes don’t need to be tough-as-nails to keep the late-night hungry punters entertained!

Shouts to the other DJs on bill, Donald Leicester and James Cripps!

I personally had a lovely time playing for the incredibly receptive “silent disco” crowd, bringing in Saturday morning!

Hope you enjoy the set as much!

Live at S*A*S*H Mix (20th March, 2016)

Well, the dust has settled on what was a truly brilliant afternoon and again, that the rain proved absolutely no match for the positive vibes and energy that was S.A.S.H. — on this occasion, The Chapel Edition!

I really enjoyed myself, playing a selection of my current favourites — as well as a few other selections from deeper in the box from yesteryear. It was also my first opportunity for a while, to play some vinyl! Of course, it was made all the more pleasurable by the receptive, warm-welcoming crowd (who you’ll hear, make an appearance in this mix!)

I was fortunate to receive the booking for the 4–6 set time, and — courtesy of one Jackson Winter — the afternoon was already nicely warmed up when I jumped on!

Once again, this S.A.S.H. crew really knows how to run a party — regardless of the conditions!

Big ups and much, much love to Cris, Kerry, Matt, Harley, Shana, and everyone who boogied away to my set!

…and you can enjoy it — hopefully! — again (or perhaps for the first time), below:

New Mix: Main Room Live 002 (Warm-Up Edition)

Here is a new mix from me; another entry to my ‘Main Room Live’ series, and it’s been a very, very long time between drinks — the first in the series, was a pumping tech. house effort back in 2010.

In constructing this mix, I tried to encapsulate my ideal warm-up set for a theoretical evening. It’s eleven o’clock, the opening set has concluded and the intention is to keep the dancefloor warm and continue the rolling flow of the evening — achieved with deep, rich and some melodic flavours, setting the stage nicely for the main event.

I took a bit of time sourcing tunes of preference to put this one together. Naturally, there were plenty more that I wanted to include, but didn’t completely fit with the desired narrative. (Another day, perhaps.)

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the mix. As per, comments, feedback (and if you really like it, bookings) would be welcomed! ;)
