Sundae 17/11/13 :: Phil Perry [UK]

Recently at Sundae we were visited upon by Phil Perry, a UK expat and part of a growing crowd of travelling DJs drawn to the pleasing climate and laid back house sound we’ve got going on around here. We did a little digging into what he had going on and found Phil definitely had the resume to spin at our tables. In fact, some of the world’s best DJs have fought for a chance to spin at his tables, his club Full Circle is regarded by DJs such as Ralph Lawson, Jo Mills, Clive Henry and more as one of their favourite places to play. Of course, after one visit to Sundae we were throwing tracks back and forth like old pals, and his tunes were doing the business for the Sundae faithful, so we’ve invited him back to kick it with us again.

First dropping a needle in 1977, Phil was part of a generation of DJs that laid the groundwork for the superclub era that would appear near the end of the century. Mixing it with Frankie Knuckles, Danny Tenaglia, Todd Terry, Robert Owens and other early DJs moving and shaking UK nightclubs into a new era with wild mix of disco, soul, funk and an emerging house beat. Reaching out to the US, Ibiza, South Africa, and Australia, Phil has spun for party people from Twilo and Soundfactory in New York to an early Sydney visit to 25000 dancers at Darling Harbour in 1991, before returning home to play tour DJ for Leftfield, Massive Attack and Faithless. All while maintaining homebase at regarded venues Ministry of Sound and Full Circle. Full Circle began with the do-it-yourself attitude of the time and grew into an intense display of debauchery and shenanigans that sustained the UK through the early 90s. Nowadays, Full Circle is but a memory, however Phil still brings the good times, with a bag stacked with the ‘right stuff.’

We’re pleased to see Phil back down here at Sundae speaking the international language and throwing down some tunes. His first session with us was a great display by an experienced DJ, and a good time was had by all. We’ve invited him back to go another round and we’re setting course for a warm and groovy vibe trading afternoon tunes and of course hanging out with you all. Join us with Phil Perry this week, come and see us in the sunshine.

Sundae 23/12/12 :: Xpat Xmas Party

So it comes to the end of the year, and 2012 for us was a banger. Brisbane locals consistently show us the quality that comes out of our little town, and we’ve shared some fun too with many fantastic guests from around the country and around the world. At this time of year we are thankful too for all of our wonderful friends who come out to play with us each Sundae, all of you are a big part of why we throw this little shindig each week.

This Christmas as many of us head home to celebrate with those close to them, some of you may find yourselves away from home for work or other reasons. Even if you aren’t alone at this time of year, remember that Sundae is your family too and we’ll be throwing on tunes and good cheer as we have all year. This week’s guest DJs are expats too: Phil Perry and Brian Damms hail from the UK, but now call Australia home, and will be joining us this week with bags of soulful, jazzy and disco flavoured deep house, alongside our happy hosts Cool Hand Luke and Chantal supplying the support with deep and funky selections. In addition, the decks will be available for drop in spinners if the mood takes them.

As you know we are in our prime time now. The Summer in Brisbane is perfect for kicking back on a weekend in the sun, by the river, with some cool cocktails and hot tunes provided by the Sundae team. Bring your family or join ours. We’re all for happy new friends at the party so come along and find us, we’ll see you in the sunshine.
