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!
Here is my recorded set from last Sunday evening, closing up S*A*S*H By Day: the daytime stanza of the amazingly strong and ever-consistent weekly event.
I played right after the day’s headliner, Scottish house guru, Jasper James. The crowd—as is always the case with S*A*S*H—were extremely welcoming and certainly up-for-it, and lapped up the unseasonal warmer Sydney vibes with an abundance of smiles!
This set contains some driving, melodic disco house vibes, some deeper house selections—some of which I’ve not enjoyed for a little while—and concludes on a faster, more pumping tip; a staple for the weekly event, really.
Many thanks and much love to the S*A*S*H crew for the booking, the hospitality, and the warm and fuzzies—particularly Cris, for his full encouragement and belief that, hey, I can play a closing set! Much love to the regular S*A*S*H party people, too, who somehow make this Sunday shindig one of the strongest, most consistent events our fair city has ever seen!
I had a whole lot of fun delivering this one, and hope that is also translated via the stream/download.

Well, after a sizeable weekend last weekend, we can finally make available our recorded set from S*A*S*H By Day at Greenwood Hotel: Andrew Fazzolari—the other half of Attic—and I, opening the afternoon’s proceedings.
Of course, just two days earlier, we’d hosted our second Attic event—with Nachtbraker joining us as our very special guest—so it was fitting and incredibly enjoyable to share the bill with Maurits once again, in the wonderful sunny surroundings of North Sydney on a Sunday afternoon.
This particular mix is a deeper, slower affair: 110–114 BPM melodic goodness; and a fairly decent insight into our musical ethos, and the sound we’re pushing for our Attic brand—minus the disco flavours, of course.
Massive thanks to the S*A*S*H crew for the opportunity, and the hospitality over the course of the afternoon. We enjoyed ourselves immensely and your brand is an absolute credit to our Sydney scene.
So, with that, we hope you enjoy this one, wherever you find yourself…

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.
We hope you enjoy the mixes! Until next time…
Here is the recording from my recent set at S*A*S*H, closing The Den in the early hours of Monday morning!
Massive shouts to the super-receptive crowd who danced right throughout — many of whom very likely kicking on from the ‘Tell No Tales’ festival from earlier in the day!
I was able to play a wide range of tunes that are currently floating my boat: from my current Attic-style cuts, some disco-infused house, concluding on more of a drum-driven tip.
With that, special thanks must be paid to the S*A*S*H crew — particular Cris — for the booking consideration (and indeed, trust), once again. And certainly not to forget George (Mesan) who played an outstanding, warm set to open up the room and attract a “proper Den crowd”.
Really hope you like this one! Until next time…
