Brendan Clay – Mental Health Mix (July 2022)

While it’s one of the more dramatic titles I’ve associated with a new mix, it’s not without good reason. The process of compiling and delivering this mix has worked wonders for my mental health over the last little while.

For the last 20 years, music has served as my primary creative outlet, however; recent opportunities to indulge in the craft or completely immerse myself in a creative project haven’t been as abundantly available nor really possible. (Most new parents or those working in high-pressure professional endeavours might share the same insight.)

So I did a thing. Indeed, my first thing in a little while…

Put simply, this was me, pinching available pockets of time, throwing on some music and pressing record while doing so. There was little rhyme nor reason to its execution, rather than embracing an opportunity to process some newer purchases or indulgently enjoying a worn favourite. (My Ecler Nuo 5 being a notable addition into the latter category.)

I completed this over a number of weekends—on some days, I contributed only half an hour; on others, a little longer—picking up from exactly the point I had finished during the previous window.

It’s raw, honest, largely unedited—though, I obviously had to join each session recording—and it’s all me, doing something I genuinely enjoy and have done for some time.

I hope this translates into a reasonable journey for you, the listener—I’ll continue to enjoy it nonetheless.

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! 😉

Attic Teaser Promo Mix (November 2016)

Well, here is the first of a couple of “teaser” mixes we’ll be throwing out for our ‘Attic’ brand this week — a new project I’m currently working on.

This mix offering contains original tunes and remixes from Junktion, Harry Wolfman, Fantastic Man, Jeremy Juno and Forteba, on labels such as Razor-N-Tape Recordings, Secret Reels and Melbourne Deepcast.

By all means, like our Attic Facebook page to stay in-the-loop with upcoming announcements and movements.

And here is a little bit more about the project:

Attic is the brainchild of Sydney jocks, Brendan Clay and Andrew Fazzolari; devised as a medium to promote their love for low, slow grooves, thick basslines and loose, swinging drums.

Attic is tailored to those searching for an avenue for deep, soulful, disco-infused and melodically-inclined house music.

Fundamentally, its focus is the promotion of quality, hand-picked local talent, foremost; regularly showcasing selectors from around the globe who mirror its style and vision.

deep • low-slung • disco

…and it’s coming in 2017.

Thanks for your support, thus far. Hope you enjoy the mix!

Live at LNDRY Promo Mix (November 2014)

Here is a new promo mix from me, replicating my recent set at Chinese Laundry, on Saturday, 1 November – supporting Subb-an (UK).

The night followed immediately after the sold-out, highly-anticipated Garden Party featuring Sasha along with a fine selection of quality local support acts.

Naturally, following an event of that nature, I tried to keep the tunes going in rhythmic style – and was blessed to have such a responsive up-for-it crowd dancing along.

In any case, I hope you enjoy this mix as much as we did on the night!
