Analogue Discogue is an esteemed hi-fi, vinyl-only event hosted by house and disco aficionado, Norm De Plume.
We were invited to join the line-up for its July event: a sun-kissed Sunday afternoon affair hosted at the exquisite, Japanese-inspired Rekōdo Restaurant & Vinyl Bar at Sydney’s Barangaroo.
Rekōdo‘s crystal-clear Klipsch sound system sounded expectedly immaculate right throughout the afternoon’s proceedings: the clarity and warmth of the system provided an ambient yet immersive experience for diners and listeners, alike. It was an absolute pleasure.
The Fazz and I came prepared, armed and loaded with a couple of boxes of carefully selected favourites—a concoction of newer burners and some favourites from yesteryear—and did our very best to fly the Attic flag proudly.
Hope you enjoy!

The big dog, Andrew Fazzolari, blew out an undisclosed number of candles in March and decided to celebrate the occasion with a good ol’ fashioned Saturday shindig at Stanley’s.
The Fazz curated a hand-picked line-up of selectors for the special occasion and generously gifted me the first two hours of the balmy Autumn evening!
I entered the venue at the tail-end of, shall we say, a “colourful” daytime takeover that was many hours—and countless beverages—deep, and was greeted by an intriguing soundtrack of popular radio-played bangers from the start of the century; ‘Ms. Jackson’ and ‘Teenage Dirtbag’, notably.
At its conclusion, we were afforded a few sought-after moments of serenity while the Technics were rolled out and added to the booth. I was afforded the opportunity to allow the dust—and, indeed, serotonin!—to settle, and re-set things with some lower, slower groovers, just as intended.
I prepared a bespoke “crate” of selections filled with some of the birthday boy’s personal favourites and guilty pleasures, along with others I thought he might enjoy. I believe I hit the brief and was pretty pleased with the result. Most importantly, The Fazz seemed to enjoy himself right through ’till the call for last drinks.
In any case, I hope you enjoy it, too.

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!
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! 😉

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.
A massive thank you to the S.A.S.H crew for placing their trust in our Attic brand and inviting us to host The Maze at their incredible — and amazingly consistent — event. We had an absolute blast!
Cris, Kerry, Matt, Jack and the crew: you really know how to make your artists and DJs feel valued and welcome. It’s an absolute credit to you all.
And with that, a big shout to all of those who listened and danced to our deeper disco flavours. I’m sure we’ll be seeing you around the traps again soon!
This is a four-hour recording, spread over two parts, and you can listen and download below.
We played tunes and remixes from the likes of Finnebassen, Soul Minority, Fouk, Frits Wentink, Luvless, Late Nite Tuff Guy, Junktion, Daniel Leseman, Andy Hart, Black Loops, Earl Jeffers, Dr. Packer and DJ Koze, to name just a few.
