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.
