Sundae 15/3/15 :: Gasometer Summer Sundae 3 (Episode 2)

Ruby is on the road again! The Kombi is back, Brisbane’s best DJs have packed their essential records, and Sundae crew are ready to roll on our third Gasometer Summer Sundae party at Gasworks. The Kombi-nation of lush eats and drinks, funky urban location, the party van full of groove and the Sundae faithful has proven to be an all around enjoyable close to the weekend for all involved.

If the tidy little display put forth at the last Gasometer party is any indication, it will be a funky, bumpy, swinging boogaloo for the ages. Sundae crew are in the driver’s seat of course, with Cool Hand Luke, Chantal, and Benn Hopkins keeping this party wagon on course as we venture through disco, house, funk, soul, jazz, big beat, breaks and hip hop.

Our Gasometer party is held in stylish surroundings with easy access in the Gasworks complex in Newstead, and all the family are welcome to this free event. Unbeatable for atmosphere, Sundae parties feature live sax and percussion alongside some of Brisbane’s best DJ’s. We look forward to seeing you out in the sun in your Sundae best!

Sundae 15/3/15 :: Cosmo Cater

card cosmo cater
Cosmo is one of the steadiest hands in Brisbane: Famous DJ standing next to him, thousands upon thousands of people losing their minds in front of him, and yet he is the very model of cool, calm and collected. This prowess has been displayed fairly much everywhere there are turntables- Family, Barsoma, TBC, Alfred + Constance, At Sixes and Sevens, and festivals such as Stereosonic and Future Music Festival. He’s played with a finesse that has made him the go to man for international warmup duties, particularly for the organised Auditree outfit. Cosmo’s extreme attention to detail and ability to get the job done at the business end of the night has found him on speed dial for promoters bringing out the likes of Chic + Todd Terry, Seth Troxler, Eats Everything, Hernan Cattaneo and more.

sundae 150222 card chantal

Chantal first came to attention thumping funky house out of the park at Therapy and just kept on, taking on Limes, Zuri, Press Club, Cloudland and more. Originally a dancer, Chantal brought a unique perspective to dance music, and brought a technical prowess to support her groovy tunes. Brisbane clubbers quickly came about, and Chantal too has amassed a significant number of people that have wobbled to her music. Recently, Chantal was at the wheels fronting Derrick Carter and taking the crowd for a ride there, so getting behind the wheel of the kombi should be no problem for her. Sundae is Chantal’s wheelhouse so no doubt we are in for a treat.

Sundae 22/2/15 :: Dante Rivera [Sydney] (Tribalismo)

card dante rivera

Hailing from Sydney, though well travelled and regarded worldwide, our guest Dante Rivera has developed a long and significant career flipping house music on it’s head and injecting his own special organic energy.

Taking in influences from all corners, Dante’s passion is house music in all it’s forms. A Dante Rivera set could cover some ground for the dancer, with selections pulled from deep, sexy, latin, afro, funky, tech, tribal and jacking flavours to create a signature sound that has seen him take on Ivy, Hugos, The Argyle, Marquee and the Opera Bar in Sydney, as well as visits to Melbourne, New Zealand, South America and previously appearing in Brisbane at Cloudland. In amongst this busy schedule, Dante has built a passionate following to his Tribalismo radio show, promoting new release and classic house. The future looks busy too, with Dante heavily involved in supporting and producing releases and events for up and coming talent through his Latin House Mafia outfit and House of Sol projects.

Dante jumps behind the wheel of the Kombi-booth with the confidence of a DJ well versed in quality house music, and with the technical skills and experience at the controls of a seasoned professional. Dante fits right in with our sound, and no doubt our support DJs and party people will make him feel welcome as he makes his first appearance here at Sundae.

Sundae 21/12/14 :: Hakan Henry

Summer is in full effect here at Sundae, and we’ve got more tasty treats on the way to sate your thirsty selves, this week in the form of our supreme Turkish connection, Hakan Henry. After a rocky start, the storms have cleaned out and cleared the way for another sublime season in Brisbane, and now that the sun is starting to shine on, the Sundae gang are keen to get back to swinging in the sunshine.

Hakan Henry arrived in Brisbane only a few short years ago, and quickly found himself folded into the Sundae family. Our musical interests align in so many ways, and every visit to Sundae for Hakan has been a proper get down, both at our weekly events here at Reef, and previously at Watt, to sharing the set up duties for international artists such as Terrance Parker and Jimpster at our more heaving parties. Clearly the Sundae faithful have adopted Hakan as their own, and he brings a unique perspective to our international family.

Fresh faced in the Istanbul scene in 1994, Hakan has played an important part in the development of the house underground there, Thousands of dancers grooved to Hakan at nightspots of renown including Crystal, 11:11, and Maslak 2019, and visiting delegates Derrick Carter, Mark Farina, Fred Everything, Jt Donaldson and more imported fresh overseas sounds, all enabled by Hakan’s hungry beat smuggling antics. Hakan has definitely put the work in there in Turkey and his since had his passport stamped in clubs in New York, Chicago, London, Ibiza, Lucerne and Sofia too.

Totally down with the house sound, of course Hakan has a few flavours and flourishes to distinguish himself too, and will be bringing a selection of influences to play with your eardrums. Chantal, Cool Hand Luke and Benn Hopkins are in the building too, knocking out tune after tune of the finest funk, boogie, soul, disco and house to while away the day with, and of course our resident mixologists and chefs here at Reef will be knocking them out too: platter after platter of the finest seafood and cocktails in Brisbane to support your lazy expedition through the afternoon.

Get on board as we welcome back to the tables Hakan Henry and the crew dishing it up this Sundae. Christmas is around the corner too, so bring your friends and family, or you are welcome to join ours. We’ll see you in the sunshine.

Sundae 14/12/14 :: Jason Rouse

Here at Sundae we’ve seen a few changes in Brisbane over the years but one thing has remained constant, steady and unwavering. Jason Rouse behind the decks dishing out tune after tune of an evening. Overseeing the rise of clubbing in this fair city from his office in the center of the room, Jason has managed proceedings in the city’s nightspots for near two decades now.

A quick flip through the resume reveals a list of basically every worthwhile soundsystem in town. From early jaunts at The Tube, Viva, Port Office and so on, to more modern jumpoffs including Family, Monastery, The Met, Zuri, Bacchus and more. Rouse has several thousand hours behind the wheels so it was natural for us to turn to him to lead proceedings this week.. Having been at the forefront of dancefloor development for so long, it’s safe to say Rouse is House. Our afternoon with Rouse though will take a more wholesome approach, including funking grooves from across the spectrum that contributed to that beautiful boogie.

Looking forward, Jason’s calendar is booked solid, both with residencies and high profile guest spots all around town. Clearly the guy is doing more than a few things right, and central to the technique is his trademark sound, a refined but forward thinking, funky, bumpy boogie know about the place as Rouse House. From the deep relaxed grooves, to big room movers, Jason can work with any situation. An experienced, professional hand behind the decks, and an all around top guy on the dancefloor side too, Jason is a great addition to the party and we are glad to have him with us this week. Jason is all about his record collection and with sounds for every mood, the afternoon’s proceedings are under firm control with Jason at the mixer.

Jason’s frequent partner in crime, Benn Hopkins, will be about the venue too preparing the business of the day alongside Chantal and Cool Hand Luke laying out the early funky goodness, and helping you navigate the end of your weekend with style and grace. Sundae has a big party season coming up this year, with Terry Farley arriving soon, the Kombi van out and about at festivals, and more on the home turf for the Sundae crew, summer is turning out to be a tip top heatwave of tune after tune and we love you so come and hang out with us. See you in the sunshine.
