Turntables at the ready: it’s time for a Vinyl Throwdown! Sundae is a big supporter of vinyl records, and our Vinyl Throwdown days are a chance for local DJs to take a trip through their record collection and we get to hear some sweet tunes. This week, Gavin Boyd.
Over more than a decade, Gavin has built a solid local following in Brisbane. Fans have appreciated his technical approach, while still keeping the movement of the party at the forefront of his mind. Called upon for headlining local residencies and supporting international artists, Gavin is keen to fill clubs and get them moving with his highly developed flavour of soul and hip hop. Engaged to set up proceedings for overseas guests such as Jill Scott, Mos Def, Nile Rodgers and Questlove, Gavin keeps his skills sharp, building on a long foundation of turntablism and battle mixing.
Between flicking record crates for the right track to get everybody grooving, Gavin has continued to work hard in the studio. Gavin first appeared as a Radio DJ many years ago, though now has moved more into production, his musical tastes and use of technology constantly evolving as he develops his craft. Soon to see a release on Jazzanova’s highly influential Sonar Kollektiv label, which will see him take his music to a larger global audience. Gavin has begun making forays further afield too with club and festival performances in the Maldives, Phillipines, Netherlands and Sri Lanka.
Down here at the party, we know Gavin has the moves to make us groove, so we are going to grab a drink and reserve some real estate as we expect an afternoon of tune after funky tune. Join us this week as we welcome Gavin Boyd for a Vinyl Throwdown. We’ll see you by the riverside.
