BYO Beats #12 - Quality not quantity this week!!!! Three quirky shows that you cannot miss!
No Dice Paradise ft. Embassy + more, Thursday March 13th, Oxford Art Factory, $10
No Dice Paradise are back for their second instalment of the year and are not holding back with the lineup. The headliner Embassy is one of the more interesting artists going around at the moment, with his blend of simple beats and traditional jazz harmonies coming together to create something utterly unique. The track “I Never Get A Morning Anymore (Friendships)” crescendos ever so slowly over the top of clever bass licks, gradually becoming a beautiful blend of vocal samples and delicate synth. This dude is the real deal, and will be playing alongside the likes of Atolla, VCS and James Blonde. Get down to OAF to soak up these soothing synths. It’s this Thursday and you can grab tix here…
The House of Who ft. Frenzie, Saturday march 15th, Goodgod Small Club
This monthly sesh has been in here before, but I couldn’t resist chucking it in again. Mike Who has been taking over the chilled out front bar of Goodgod for a little while now, and is keeping the masses happy with his killer mix of soul, Hip-hop, 80’s, Africa and just about everything else under the sun. This week Shan Frenzie will be joining Mike at the decks, and with 20 yrs of experience and a reputation as one of the countries finest DJ’s, this night is sure to be killer. This is free, so don’t be stupid and get on down there this Friday. Until then, wrap your ears around this amazing mix!!!
Sunday Spice w/Murat Kilic + U-Khan + more, Sunday March 16th, Spice Cellar
Spice have become the kings of the late night in Sydney, and it’s not without just cause. Killer food, a forever pumping dance floor as well as consistently awesome tunes has created one of the most popular venues in the city. Even in the wake of the lock-out laws they have created a late night juice bar that serves fresh juices and “spice blocks” to keep party goers alive until the booze is once again allowed to flow. Their Sunday sessions have a reputation for providing some of the brightest and best when it comes to producers and this week’s installment is no exception. Hailing from Auckland and based in Sydney, U-Khan brings a taste for the underground side of house and techno, his sets rife with emotion as he mixes layer upon layer to create a perfectly chaotic sound. Also performing will be Ghostly DJ’s, James i.V, TGMN and Lloyd James. Submit your guest list here and enjoy your Sunday…
