Sundae 5/12/10 :: Mike Gurrieri [Melbourne]

This week we welcome our guest Mike Gurrieri from Melbourne. He’s been busy down there, chipping away at a freestyle deep house sound that refuses be categorized. Splashes of hip hop, jazz, funk, soul and deep house leap out of the speakers, from early evening grooves to the late night mess, Mike has it under control.

Indeed he is keen on the art, studying works fresh out of the carton in the record store, to releasing his own flavour of broke down lounge selections via his label, and popular podcast, Deepermotions. In the club, and Mike has a distinct groove that sees him at the controls for many notable music events in the Melbourne calender, not least setting the scene for Derrick Carter, Mark Farina, Jazzanova, Amp Fiddler, Crazy Penis and the like. We like! We can’t wait for the deep and eclectic riverside beats and we hope you like too. Join us this Sundae!


Sundae 28/11/10 :: Vinyl Throwdown

Records are where we all came up. From the musty smell in the shop, the cover art, white labels to black label, and then there was lovingly rolling it into the mix for the first time in the club. Some of Brisbane’s top spinners have selected their favourites, and are dusting them off for you! Scott Walker, Anna Sonnenburg, DJ Freestyle, Adrian Matyear, Chantal, Cool Hand Luke and more. We are all bringing a grab bag of funky, groovy and memorable house and garage tunes, so your afternoon is all set for easy going vibes and friendly people by the river.

Well we have been having some interesting weather lately, but that hasn’t stopped the Sundae family from getting out and getting about in their Sunday best. This week though we can assuredly predict tune after tune as Sundae presents our semi-occasional purist day: The Vinyl Throwdown.


Sundae 21/11/10 :: Mark Briais

This week we are fortunate to have Mark Briais return to our midst. He is one of those cool cats that can proudly say they were there in the beginning, shaping the direction of dance music in Brisbane.

With one of the longest resumes in the city it would be impossible to list all his achievements in this small space. we can assure you though he has been around the block and back, most recently in venues like Empire, Family, and Barsoma. His experience on the setup has been called on to provide an appropriate and skillful introduction to many touring international djs. And as an international DJ in his own right, is one of the few Brisbanites to play the original Sundae party in Philadelphia. Mark’s knowledgeable and friendly outlook has helped hundreds of people each week find both exciting new and quality rare tunes, whether in the club, or the Rockinghorse Records vinyl bunker, where he operated the counter for many years, heavily influencing the emerging sound of Brisbane.

A longtime friend of Sundae, Mark recently took time out to craft a limited edition release (a progeny in his own image – cute!), though we can’t keep him from sharing his extensive musical knowledge, and he returns to the party for an all vinyl set. After so many years unpacking the imported 12″s that many a Brisbane DJ has fought over, we know this will be a huge day for music lovers, sun lovers, and lovers in general. Everyone will want to get down. Don’t miss it!


Sundae 14/11/10 :: Joe Silva [Canada]

Joe Silva has been producing his own brand of deep, tech-house tracks and remixes for over 15 years.

It was 1995 under the moniker X Nation that Joe released the first EP on his fledgling imprint Purespace Records. Later that year, his second EP Free Your Mind was making waves both locally and overseas, appearing on several high profile dj tapes. The rare vinyl EP is still a sought out item today.

Forward to today and in the last year Joe’s work has appeared on Tango, Thoughtless, Lunatic Jazz and Conya record labels. And with past releases on labels like Viva!, Red Melon, Nordic Trax and Guesthouse, Joe Silva has come to be a well known name in house music.

As a DJ, Joe has made appearances across North and South America and is a true house music veteran with years of experience behind the decks.


Sundae 7/11/10 :: Jeremy Broughton

One of Brisbane’s friendly imported expats, Jeremy Broughton first crossed the Tasman six years ago, and established himself with a steady string of dates between Family, Press Club, and Barsoma, and more recently, has been a popular spinner at The Met, and the newly reinvigorated Alhambra. In the meantime, his big room focus has given way to a more sophisticated deep and groovy house sound that has opened him up to a new circle of fans.

Jeremy is a regular face around Sundae of an afternoon, though this will be the first time he takes to the decks here. Although primarily focussed on the club aspect, Jeremy has assured us of an eclectic and suitably sun drenched afternoon set of house jams, reaching all the way back, and delivered with his trademark good humour and undeniable technical skill.
