Sundae 23/2/14 :: Vinyl Throwdown ft Gavin Boyd

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.

Gavin Boyd Vinyl Throwdown @ Sundae

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.
