Out and about in our fair city, we find ourselves amongst good company all about the place. There is a strong group of musicians and DJs, all very friendly, and all great at what they do. Through the month of August we’re opening up the decks to some renowned Brisbane partnerships, friends and musical co-conspirators who are particular close, in sound and sensibility, who compliment and challenge each other, and if nothing else, can keep each other line. This week we sit down with Zach Salar and Brett J.
Both Zach and Brett are no stranger to the late night party, each arriving by a different route but both have built on a genuine love for house music, technical proficiency at the mixer, and a dedication to the wellbeing of the dancer. Together they share a drive to deliver maximum effect to the party, and encouraging the associated big smiles, arms in the air and lost marbles that are the hallmarks of a well trained deck technician in their element. Between the two of them, they have brought this effervescence to GPO, Ahlambra, Monastery, Barsoma, and indeed each have turned out a soulful afternoon session for us here at Sundae.
Not enough to find themselves at all the city’s hotspots over the weekend, the boys put together a broadcast during the week to keep in touch with their fans, at the time the first of its kind in Brisbane. Each week, the Nightvision podcast attracted thousands of listeners, eager to hear Brett and Zach’s particular slice of Brisbane dance music flavour, and keep up to date with their fresh and forthright take on the state of the house sound in our little city.
This week at Sundae finds us in the company of another pair of skilled spinners that shared a house at some point, or at the very least spend enough time hanging out that they are comfortable taking noise complaints from the neighbours. Zach Salar and Brett J drop by to drop in some funk filled afterhours sound crossing deep house, disco and other good vibes. So come and get amongst the usual good cheer of a lazy afternoon with the sublime Sundae sound. See you by the riverside.
