Live at Cafe del Mar (22nd February, 2020)

Alright, well, as promised… more content incoming!

For greater historical context; I’ll include the original copy below—it probably paints a clearer picture of my thoughts/feelings at the time, amidst the unbelievable period in which we currently find ourselves!

TL;DR: I played this set in February (pre-lockdown) and posted it around a month later (during lockdown)—and hey, even if you don’t read the passage in its entirety; well, I hope you enjoy the set all the same! 😉

A lot can change in a month…

While I recorded and delivered this particular set at Café del Mar in Sydney almost exactly a month ago; it feels considerably longer than that. Since this short space of time, there is a collective feeling—to me a least—that we’ve lost a lot our innocence… on both, a local and global level.

At the time, I can recall considering the current COVID-19/coronavirus situation as nothing more than an afterthought, a conversational filler, a punchline. There were no suggestions of any lockdown, no cancelled events, no indefinite business closures. There was a palpable buzz in the air and people were out on the town enjoying a balmy, late-Summer evening.

A lot can change in a month…

While I, and many of my esteemed colleagues, have taken to the Facebook Live airwaves to deliver a positive message of music during the last week or so; I also hope that this particular offering may serve a similar purpose: an accompanying side-dish to your respective isolated, remote working or otherwise uncertain endeavours, perhaps.

This isn’t a typical set that you might hear me play in a club nor even as part of our Attic project. For that reason, I originally intended to keep this as a private offering only. All things considered, it feels right to share it out.

It’s an uplifting, disco-centric offering—full of big vocals and positive melodies. I had an enjoyable time throwing it together, and I hope it translates as such.

I hope you enjoy it during these uncertain times and hope you’re otherwise staying positive and healthy.

Much love!

Live at Attic presents Cody Currie (7th December, 2018)

Massive thanks to everyone who came down, packed out and partied with us at our Attic presents Cody Currie event.

We enjoyed excellent, positive vibes right throughout the evening—from the deeper, disco warm-ups early on, all the way to the pumping dance floor burners during the early hours from Norm De Plume and Cody, himself!

Special thanks also to Carly, Picnic Touring & Events and the team at Harpoon Harry for providing us with our playground for the evening!

Here is my solo warm-up hour—filled with lower, slower selections that happen to be tickling me in all the right places—as well as another hour, back-to-back with Andrew Fazzolari, right before Cody!

Stay locked for more Attic action real soon!

Live at Toast, Ivy Pool Club (29th September, 2018)—with Andrew Fazzolari

We’ve been itching to get this one up and available since that glorious Sydney Saturday afternoon at Ivy Pool Club a couple of weeks back—and here it is!

For context, we were asked to open up proceedings at the first ‘Toast’ event of the season and, despite the grim weather forecast; Mother Nature turned it on for all… so, we responded accordingly.

“The Fazz” and I—unofficially waving the Attic flag—took the opportunity to play some of our lower, slower, funky burners and had an immensely enjoyable time in the process!

Huge thanks to the Toast crew, and Christian Grande for the recommendation!

Hope you dig this one!
