Sundae 5/5/13 :: Chantal + Cool Hand Luke

Over the last twelve years, Sundae at Watt has been the favourite place for Brisbane party people to kick back on Sundays. Each week we are treated to Brisbane’s hottest DJs, supported each week with the reliable party grooves provided by your effervescent hosts Cool Hand Luke and Chantal. This week we turn the spotlight on the two cats that keep the party humming and check in with the record crates of two of Brisbane’s finest party spinners.

The last decade or so has seen your faithful Sundae hosts dominating the Brisbane nightlife with their cheerful brand of disco, boogie, funk and soul, and proper deep house. From their initial meeting amid the busyness at Family, to individual appearances at Zuri, Press Club, Barsoma, Cloudland, amongst other Brisbane nightlife institutions. In addition to their headline appearances at some of the city’s finest, their support of the underground scene is well regarded, and their involvement in parties such as Let’s Get Minimal, Therapy, Auditree and more are all the better for the Cool Hand Luke and Chantal touch.

Each week here at Sundae, Luke and Chantal are the centre of our little party, keeping the sound on track, and making sure the party people are all in good cheer. Come and kick back with us as Cool Hand Luke and Chantal take the day from start to finish throwing down their favourite tunes. Join us by the riverside.

Sundae 21/4/13 :: Gavin Boyd

A long time coming Gavin Boyd finally graces the decks for Sundae this week. More than 10 years at the decks Gavin’s multi genre talent sees him in a multitude of support and club residencies and we have no doubt he can meet the challenge of a Sundae afternoon by the river at Watt.
No matter what medium you see Gavin performing with to this man vinyl is king as it’s with vinyl he honed his turntablist skills and the respect of his peers and we are sure to see some of this talent shine though on Sunday.

Having started as a radio announcer/DJ in ’99 on 4ZzZ’s Blackbeat, then winning the Queensland ITF Battle Champ title in 2003 and consequently being invited to judge the Queensland Finals of the DMC World DJ Championships numerous times. This then helped catapult Gavin’s career, landing him a multitude of support spots alongside some of the biggest names in the music industry (such as Pete Rock, Mos Def, Dwele, Questlove, Dâm Funk, Busta Rhymes, Public Enemy and countless others) and the opportunity to play at some of the most popular music festivals in Australia.

Keep an eye out for Gavin’s own production reflecting years in the business, great knowledge of music and above all else ‘Soul’! See you by the riverside.

Sundae 7/4/13 :: DJ Neroli

Brisbane home girl returns from the UK keen to get back to her roots and reminisce over warm Sunday’s spent riverside at Watt. There would hardly be a club goer in Brizvegas that hasn’t had the pleasure of a set from Neroli at some time. Best known here for her Family (Fluffy) residency for many years Neroli established herself in the high rankings of Australian DJ’s and her skills have taken her far and wide playing the world over. If you’re wondering why you haven’t seen her of late, it’s because Neroli now resides most of the year in London, and has held down a residency at London’s longest running iconic nightclub HEAVEN for the weekly event Popcorn, as well as playing funky house sets at Hed Kandi London, Cafe De Paris, Gigalum, The End. Music is what Neroli is about to her core and we look forward to her Sundae expression of 17 years in the biz.
