Sundae 28/9/14 :: Mr Sparkle

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.

Sundae 1/12/13 :: Chic Wants You!

Wow. Everywhere tunes. Much amaze. So House. This week we are going all out in celebration of the upcoming “Mobile Disco” super-event featuring Nile Rodgers, Chic and Todd Terry. Brisbane’s finest will be in support and of course Sundae crew have got their sticky little fingers in this tasty pie too! However, we can’t wait ’til the 15th to get this proper party started so we are going to have a little warm up session of our own.

Sundae specialists Cool Hand Luke and Chantal will be joined at Watt by the Brisbane segment of the support crew featuring Mr Sparkle, Kieron C, and Cosmo Cater. We will be throwing down only the finest classic house and disco tunes in a Sundae soundcheck to prepare us all for the big event coming up in a few weeks time, and will be featuring cuts from the impressive back catalogues of Todd Terry, Chic and Nile Rodgers.. There will be heaps of give aways including signed CDs and a chance to meet the band too, as well as a funky little disco dance class to get you stepping in the right direction.

There will be talk of this event to come for sure, and we are doing our little bit to get our party people prepped and ready for this great event. There will be ticket sellers on hand too if you need to hook your friends up. This is a great chance to see some of Brisbane’s finest DJs in the spotlight before the big night comes around so don’t miss out on the fun. We’ll see you by the riverside.

Sundae 14/10/12 :: Benn Hopkins + Mr Sparkle

So, Luke and Chantal are away- and Messrs Hopkins and Sparkles are here to play! This week finds us at the party sans our usual party providers, however the reins have been handed over to the members of the Sundae clan. With a strict warning of course to keep the party on track and play some funky tunes. So we introduce Benn Hopkins and Mr Sparkles, two pleasant chaps with the recipe for an afternoon of either chilling or illing, as you prefer.

Often seen lurking at the Sundae party, Benn is a qualified party starter and reliable hand across the early hours in the city’s clubs. Introducing international tourists each week at his Zuri parties doesn’t hurt his resume, and often sees him sorting out the logistics of getting the evening started at Barsoma, Laruche and so on. Mr Sparkles too has fashioned himself a corner in the city with his weekly showings in the Met’s Bamboom room. Some may remember him too from a little residency with our own Cool Hand Luke that occupied the attic of The Family for half a decade too, so you know Sparkles is along with what we’re doing down here.

Between the two, we have flavours for your afternoon from slow and groovy r’n’b jams to upbeat funky breaks and soulful deep house beats. Mr Sparkles and Benn Hopkins are experienced operators and both eager to take the Sundae party for a spin while our usual hosts are out of town. Join us this week in the park, in the sun. We’ll see you by the riverside.
