No stranger to our party, our guest this week Mr Sparkle has been a long time supporter of Sundae, and a close friend of the crew. Indeed, the halcyon days of Brisbane’s own superclub Family were built around the long and prosperous Saturday night partnership with our very own Cool Hand Luke that lasted for many years. For those who don’t know though, let’s help you get acquainted..
One of Brisbane’s hardest working party starters, engineering all manner of social interaction in rooms big and small, DJ Mr Sparkle seeks to create a convivial atmosphere through funky, soulful goodness and big beats to tease out big smiles and feed sweaty dance floors. Taking on any party situation, Sparkles’ backs himself with a lifetime of interaction with music, calling on influences such as a music teaching mum, early years of soul and funk immersion and roller skating discos, through to the Manchester sounds of the 90’s, acid jazz and old school hip hop. All the while incubating an interest in the emerging rave, house and club sounds of the time.
For over ten years, Sparkles has been a mainstay at the best of Brisbane’s club rotations, taking on The Met, The Family, Press Club, The Wickham, Uber, GPO, Main Squeeze, Monastery and Jorge amongst many others. In the warmer months, Sparkles fills his days with outings such as Summerfieldayze, BBQ Breaks, Future Music Festival, Parklife and the like and performs under various guises, including Dubs… Down Under Beatmasters- his live collective, performing at Byblos Portside.
Mr Sparkle is without a doubt an unstoppable party force always bent on shenanigans, and carries a weekend stamina that would put most of the younger generation of DJs to shame, so we can expect the fun to continue through the afternoon and well into the night. This will be Sparkles first outing in the new digs too so he is eager to get to work on the crowd early and turn on an afternoon of just solid spring vibes. Join us this Sundae with as we carry on in proper form with fine quality afternoon selections. See you in the sunshine.
