We are in the thick of it now! The great Brisbane spring is well and truly in full swing and the Sundae faithful have not been wasting the days with lots of you beautiful party people out in force each week. This week though we are absent our hosts Chantal and Cool Hand Luke while they rock out in Cambodia. Don’t fret, they’ll be back next week. In the meantime local hoodlums Willi Costa and Haiku have staged a coup d’etat of the Sundae turntables for a weekend of boogie beats in the hot hot heat.
The two first came to mainstream attention in Brisbane as members of the highly organised Uncle outfit that occupied the top level of Family. Each Saturday saw an almost cultlike following drawn to the venue’s infamous Pod room to get frisky in the high pressure environment that pushed DJs to the limit and drove dancers wild. Fresh house and techno music, laid on a foundation of only the finest selections collected on vinyl that could do the business in every party environment, big room or small. Willi came from a background of disco, rave, post punk, boogie and northern soul, while Haiku had grown up with hip hop, bossa, big band swing, lounge and jazz. While both grew into fine house and techno DJs in the club, we are hoping to get a look inside their private collections of afterhours beats when they take over this week.
We’ve been told to expect a wide range of grooves, from the aforementioned areas to Vegas lounge, cinema soundtracks, muzak and a tiny taste of psychadelia with a few fun bits thrown in between. All keeping to the constant Sundae groove, but with the cheekiness that only these two could get away with. Last time we left the keys with these characters a great day was had by all so we know the party is in good hands. Join Willi Costa and Haiku as they take the controls at Sundae, we’ll see you by the riverside.
