S*A*S*H Lockdown Radio Mix (September 2020)

Watch the entire four-hour effort here.

There are few phone calls we enjoy receiving more than those from Cris at S*A*S*H. A large, red, circled calendar date typically follows the conversation, accompanied with resulting excitement in preparation for our next S*A*S*H date.

Whether demanding a sweaty, pumping late-night/early-morning shift in The Den, the lower, slower, disco vibes in The Maze, or a sun-soaked warm-up effort at S.A.S.H By Day; bookings at S.A.S.H quickly become personal highlights and are always, always subject for excitement.

Well, we received this very call a couple of months back which came with a comforting indication: “once we’re back; you’re back.”

With the ever-evolving situation that we call 2020; we have little doubt that the call came with an expectation that we’d be “back” in the saddle by now. While that’s not (yet) to be; we were offered a unique opportunity in the interim:

Back in September, we were—quite literally—handed the keys to the kingdom by Marley for the purpose of throwing down another edition of S.A.S.H’s Sunday stanza for its Lockdown Radio series. (And what a sweet space to spend an afternoon, it must be stated!)

We approached this as an opportunity to build our own theoretical S*A*S*H By Day composition—albeit, a condensed rendition of four hours—beginning with melodic, deeper vibes as a “warm-up”, and running through deeper house, dashes of disco, with some top-drawer signature S*A*S*H-esque chuggers towards its conclusion. Two parts Attic, two parts S*A*S*H, and plenty in-between.

This particular hour is the very first—more of a warm-up effort containing a selection of more off-the-grid, Attic-flavoured tunes from a line-up of “usual suspects”.

While you’re no doubt spoilt for choice with DJ mix content online nowadays; we hope that this offering will quench your thirst for all things S*A*S*H in your lounge room or office, in preparation for a time we’re all back together on the (real) dance floor before too long. And how sweet that will be.

Live at S*A*S*H. (12th January, 2020)—with Andrew Fazzolari

Seriously. Shame on me for leaving my site without an update for this length of time. I’ve been keeping very busy, playing plenty of sets—you know, before this COVID thing hit—and have published a slew of new mixes and material.

I’ll begin adding all of them—well, the notable ones—to the site over the next little while. If you’re a little on the impatient side; rest assured, everything worth your time is available via my Soundcloud page.

Looking at this particular effort, though:

Andrew Fazzolari and I were kindly asked to open proceedings at S*A*S*H By Day on a Sunday afternoon in January this year. Despite it appearing to be a smoky—and later, a rainy—affair in its early stages; the show must go on… and it certainly did.

We kicked off on the lower, slower, deeper tip, throwing on a selection of sub-110 BPM burners, setting the stage—and warming the floor—for Sondrio, Mo’funk and later… Black Loops!

Within this couple-of-hour-long offering, you’ll hear a range of selections from the likes of Tilman, Late Nite Tuff Guy, Frits Wentink, Harold Heath, Jehan and Admin, to name just a few.

Many thanks, as always to Cris, Kerry and the S*A*S*H collective for keeping us in mind—as always, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

We hope it warms your day/evening as it did on Sunday. Hope you enjoy 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!
