Sundae 22/6/14 :: Chris Wilson

n

It is not often we come across a DJ so fervent in his approach, and so enthusiastic about the delivery that he has influenced the tastes of tens of thousands of clubbers, inspired and developed many young DJs, and presented so professionally that thousands of people can attribute their most memorable parties in some way to him. Many of Brisbane’s club insiders will recognize him immediately as the man behind the Katarzyna kurtain. For those not yet acquainted, let us introduce Chris Wilson.

In the nineties, Brisbane nightlife was a dark and desolate mix of meagre offerings. A young expat Brit sought to install some sense of decency to the nocturnal offerings, least of all, so he and his friends would have a place to play. His first offering, Empire Hotel’s Corner Bar, would become the goto point for incoming dance music for more than a decade and sought to bring some of the house and big beat craziness that had been blowing up in Europe and the UK. It was a huge success, and became a precursor to his professional involvement with the venue’s owners that would last many years. Soon after, the reborn Empire hotel complex arrived. Press Club soon followed and in due time the team would launch the game-changing superclub experience to Brisbane, in the form of the Family.

Over the next decade Chris would define himself as an adaptable, experienced DJ, able to drop deep house cocktail grooves to big room funky tech house bombs, any time, any day, anywhere. His work in bringing international sounds to Brisbane saw him become one of the most successful, and most awarded, promoters in the country. A second superclub, Cloudland soon followed, focusing more on the evening soiree, dinner and drinks, and allowed him an outlet for his more mature, sophisticated sounds.

Over the past decade and a half, Brisbane has undergone a massive amount of change, from small country town, to the more cosmopolitan city we recognize today. The club scene too has seen a massive transformation, from seedy beginnings in the underground, to the opulent superclubs that we play in today. Our guest this week is a DJ that has seen that transformation first hand. indeed he was party to most of the exciting developments of recent times and we are pleased this week to welcome back such an experienced hand to our party when Chris Wilson joins Chantal and Cool Hand Luke this Sundae.

Now, while we have many nice things to say about Chris here, of course behind every great man is a greater woman too and this week we celebrate the birthday of the lovely Tracy who has been along for much of the rollercoaster ride described above. Birthdays amongst our family are very important to us, so we will be taking time to properly celebrate both of the beautiful people comprising this couple. Join us as we pick out a suitably appropriate song for these two to dance to, we’ll be trying out tunes all afternoon long! See you by the riverside.

Sundae 29/12/13 :: Uncle Reunion

We are in the holiday season now! Following the celebrations of the week, and the impending New Year, we don’t really need an excuse to have a party down here at Sundae.

In Brisbane town, we have paid tribute in the past to clubs that had a distinct and influential effect on the state of dance music in the city, and this week we turn our attention to Uncle, aka “The Pod”. Hidden in the attic of Family, Uncle was church for the serious heads, and an unreal display of light and sound for the naive that strayed into the hedonism. Resident DJs and Lighting Techs were affectionately known as Uncles, and just like their namesake, definitely brought the boogie to the party.

Ranging from deep soulful house, through jacking Chicago and San Fran sounds to the more driving techno of Berlin, some of the most highly regarded DJs of our time passed through that building. Uncle residents held their own, and the rotating all star team of Brisbane DJs matched it with the best in the world to present a party that attracted a cult following for almost ten years. Sadly, Uncle is no more, however the Uncle DJs continue to school Brisbane, and this week we have a special treat for you in Brian Damms, Haiku aka Adrian Matyear and Willi Costa, bringing refined bags of house delight to Sundae crossing the different shades of intelligent funky house that we hope will take you back. Join us this Sundae as we remember Uncle. You know where we’ll be – see you in the sunshine.

Sundae 1/9/13 :: Vinyl Throwdown

Officially this week is the beginning of Spring, but we haven’t a care. We’ve been all about this great weather we’ve been having for a while now, and each Sundae we set off to the party ready to throw down some tunes and shake away in the beautiful afternoons. This week we return to our vinyl throwdown series to bring the warmth and crackle to the party, and are joined by a close friend of the party Chris Wilson to add to fray. Once we put the needle down, then we’ll just hit that groove all day.

Our guest, Chris Wilson was responsible for maintaining the Family and Empire outfit for many years. Tthe Sundae crew, and many of our guests, have performed in the turntable friendly territory of Chris’s booths, so we’ve got an experienced hand throwing down with us this week indeed. Of course, on it’s way is a generous helping of deep house, world grooves, funk, disco and other bits to make the people sway. Don’t forget too, it is Father’s day coming up so bring out your family and we can get everyone involved.

Each record that is cut contains the tune within in one long groove, and that is a perfect way to describe an afternoon with us here at Sundae. So get down, reserve some real estate for you and your friends early, and we can all soak up the funky afternoon groove of DJs Chris Wilson, Cool Hand Luke and Chantal. As always presented at Watt in the Powerhouse Complex in the surreal surrounds of Brisbane’s inner city New Farm Park. Join us this Sundae, we’ll see you by the riverside.
