Sundae 3/1/10 :: DJ Freestyle

Completely and deeply involved in music, in every possible corner of him, Freestyle has explored hip hop, funk, disco, soul, garage and house music, treading a path in the outer frontiers of the modern club sound that many, many other DJs and producers would later follow.

From his hometown of Brisbane, Freestyle is regarded an experienced hand, from laying out the foundations in the cityโ€™s earliest clubs, multiple state DMC titles, to multi genre adaptability across a long list of residencies including Alhambra, Familyโ€™s lounge, Press Club, Jade Buddha, appearances at Sundae and Therapy, international set up duties such as his famed Miguel Migs support at Monastery, and his warmup for James Curd in Uncle amongst numerous others.

Internationally, Freestyle is regarded a leading player in the house scene, with 40 vinyl releases on forward thinking labels Guesthouse/ Guess Who, Icon Recordings, Brique Rouge, Grab Recordings, Om Records, Shifted Music and so on and so on. His prolific and quality output regularly catches the attention of house luminaries Mark Farina, DJ Mes, JayJ, Chuck Love et al. On both the production front and behind the wheels in the club, Freestyle is respected worldwide for his skilled and genuine people moving abilities.

Sundae 20/12/09 :: Xmas Vinyl Throwdown

Four of Brisbane’s best known record collectors digging through there crates and wiping the dust of some classic pieces of wax to come together for a christmas showdown and beer appreciation. Freestyle (Colin Russel), Mark Briais, Rousey (Jason Rouse) & Adrian Matyear combined have close to 60 years experience between them so you can guarantee they’ll be a bit of push and shove for the use of the 12’10’s. I’m proud to call all these cool cats my mates and what better way to catch up for christmas than spinning a few tunes on a Sundae afternoon! See you in the sunshine!
