A collector of music for as long as he can remember Frank Li got the DJ bug 3 years ago. His eclectic taste has driven him to appreciate and play everything from Disco to Techno and for Frank as long as It’s groovy & classy it’s good! The Genre’s influencing Frank’s DJ style these days are Disco edits, italo disco & mid tempo house. Names like Steve Lawler, Ben Watt, Greg Wilson, Tim Sweeney and Morgan Geist, Frank explains, have been a big part of the influence and inspiration for his love of all things DJ. Over the last 8 months Dj’ing has taken a back seat to his promoter role for the local Auditree brand who over this time have hosted some of the biggest parties Brisbane has seen this year. Frank believes that good music is just that, no matter what the genre and Auditree is an extension of that belief. A gentleman of the DJ scene Frank Li is not one to brag about his DJ skills and it was on the recommendation of those who have heard him play that he finds himself playing for Sundae. We can expect his set to be slow, groovy ,obscure but still fun, perfect for a Sundae afternoon and I know Frank is keen to get the promoters hat off for a day and the headphones on for a relaxed set and a beer or two by the river at Watt.
Steve Watson hails from the good old North East of England, but after many years living and partying in Manchester, he now calls Melbourne his home, spending his days basking in the Australian sunshine getting his inspiration from an eclectic mix of music. Like many DJ’s going through their musical cadetship, his taste was a little on the weak and experimental side. He frolicked around in the shallows of Trance, cheesy pop and electro house in the late 90’s, until finally coming to his senses when he discovered the pleasures of soulful house music and has never turned back. A DJ-ing style that swings from jazz house to deep house, and dips into jacking along the way but always with a sense of the soulful sound he loves. Steve is well known for his connection with Melbournes Soiree events who’s moto, ‘The Soirée is not just about the music it’s about the entire experience of an evening party – the ambience’, aligns well with what Sundae Brisbane is about. Soiree has grown to become a collection of DJ’s that have their musical interest rooted firmly in all things HOUSE, with soulful undertones. You can expect more of the same from Steve Watson this Sundae @ Watt. See you in the Sunshine!
