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 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!

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.

Live at S*A*S*H Mix (7th August, 2016)

I’ve played some really enjoyable gigs over the last couple of years, but my recent Monday morning set at S*A*S*H, in particular, was something incredibly special and will be held dear and remembered very fondly for some time indeed!

A special thank you to Cris, Matt and Kerry for the booking: for having faith in me, to hand me a prime slot; and to the many happy faces who danced, grooved and partied into the early hours in The Den with me!

Fortunately, I happened to record the set — which comes complete with audio from the crowd — and it’s now available to listen to and download.

Really hope you enjoy this one — again, or for the first time — as much as I did!

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! 😉
