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.
