Scott Walker is known to many of us here as a professional man about town, personally tending to gatherings all about our little city with suitable flair and untouchable track selection. Although known primarily for his serious club focused house and techno, Scott’s Sundae sessions have become something of a collector’s item and a popular way to end a week. This week, we’ve invited Scott back to take us with him on another afternoon adventure.
For more than ten years Scott has established himself as one of Brisbane’s dominant dancefloor forces, showing up in all the fine establishments such as Family, Monastery, Empire and it’s Moonbar, Alhambra and Barsoma. It is not only his undeniable skill as a DJ that sees him at the forefront of the Brisbane scene, but his genuine love for Brisbane’s underground club culture, almost crossing into obsession, that endears him to so many fans. Indeed, over the eight years that his Drop night dominated the nightlife, Scott has seen many changes in this fine city, and has even forced the direction a fair amount on his own too. As part of the highly organized Auditree outfit, Scott brought his extensive experience and support to a new guard, and together they successfully hosted some of Brisbane’s most revered events of recent times, most notably supporting Hernan Cattaneo and Carl Craig. As a serious vinyl collector Scott is well read on his music history, while also adopting new technology and musical ideas, and his afterhours sessions cross deep house, disco old and new, through to more organic sounds as well as intelligent electronica.
His adaptability is regarded too, regularly taking his one man club heaving show on the road, with appearances around the country and now dipping his toe in the Asian club circuit; always sure to return home in time for the festival season, where he is called upon by everyone from Big Day Out, Global Gathering, and Gatecrasher to Summafieldayze, Global Underground, and Slinky.It would be ridiculous of us to list all of Scott’s high profile supports, the list runs over several pages. So let us summarize: Scott does the big jobs and does them right. Some of the biggest names in dance music have all stepped into a club expertly simmered by Mr Walker. Each set is a skilled display of dancefloor mechanics, rolling through vintage to modern sounds to bring about entangled throes of barely behaved dancers.
What more can we say? Scott is simply in touch with how club’s should work. It is a real treat to have him back at the controls. The man likes to get down with the chilled out sound too so we can expect some fine hip hop, funk, boogie and what not to get everyone swaying. Cool Hand Luke and Chantal will set the scene for all the good people. Then Scott has free reign on the proceedings of the afternoon, and no doubt will have a bag of super sweet audio confectionery to please everyone’s tastes. Join us as we welcome back Scott Walker to the Sundae soiree. We’ll see in the sunshine.
Sundae 16th November
