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.
