We played our first club set under our Attic guise for a little over two years! (Hey, a pandemic might just do that.)
For the occasion, we partnered with the fine folk at No Place Like House, welcoming seasoned French house stalwart, Art of Tones, as part of his very first Australian tour—a great booking and an even better bloke!
(And, geez, we’d missed the Civic Underground—our home away from home since Attic’s inception.)
We opened the evening and were gifted a deliciously lengthy two-and-a-half set to get things underway. We kicked off with our signature warm-up fodder and built things up on the housey tip as the room began filling up and the feet started moving en masse!
Within you’ll hear originals, remixes and releases from a selection of our favourites, including Junktion, Local Talk, Tropical Disco Records, I Gemin, SlothBoogie, Jehan, Sondrio, Hotmood, Sune, Scruscru, Never Dull, Dam Swindle, Ed Wizard, Dan Kye, Felipe Gordon, Kevin Over, Demuir and Tilman—to name just a few!
We hope you dig this one! We’ve had another taste and you can bet that there is plenty more to come in the near future! 😉
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.
