Sundae 16/11/14 :: Scott Walker

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 4/8/13 :: Scott Walker + Willi Costa

The message on the wire from Cool Hand Luke and Chantal is that they’ve arrived at the safe house in Ibiza Town and have set up there temporarily. Their ‘Carmen Sandiego’ trip that they’ve got going on there is coming along nicely and we will no doubt hear more about their adventures soon.

Meanwhile, back at Sundae Brisbane, we’ve got things humming, this week under the careful guidance of two of Brisbane’s finest DJs in Willi Costa and Scott Walker. Laying it out on the turntables only we are having a good old fashioned Sundae Vinyl Throwdown. But first we’re going to check in and see what we’re in for.

Willi Costa is an underground hero in Brisbane, managing proceedings in Uncle at Family, Press Club, and of course, his appearances here at Sundae with cool deep house, disco and his notorious casual charm. Just Willi’s presence at a party is enough to make it ‘historically memorable’ so we will be looking forward to having Willi back at the controls.

Scott Walker is known to many of us here too as a professional man about town, personally tending to gatherings with Auditree, Drop, Empire, Family and Barsoma and so on with suitable flair and untouchable track selection. 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.

With Scott Walker and Willi Costa supervising each other- what could go wrong? I can’t believe we left the keys with these characters. In summary, the party is in good hands, we think, and a cool heap of chilled out funky business is coming your way. All on wax for our Vinyl Throwdown. Great stuff. We’ll see you by the riverside.

Sundae 9/6/13 :: 12 Years of DJs at Watt!

Once upon a time in a galaxy far, far… nevermind you know the bit. Some DJs started spinning records on a Sunday by the river. No big deal, until you guys showed up! One of the most pleasing things about coming down to the party each week is seeing all the fresh friendly people and hanging out with you all, and it is this overwhelming support that has seen us keeping coming back for twelve years now! That’s one full trip around the zodiac, and we’ve been blessed with good luck the whole way.

First putting needle to record in 2001, DJs on a Sunday at Watt have become an institution in the Brisbane scene, outlasting fashions and fads to bring you fresh tunes and vintage jams to soundtrack the end of your weekend in the great Queensland climate. Over that time, we’ve seen young uns, not so young uns, international spinners and locals alike take control of the wheels of steel, and later the buttons that beep and boop, to bring you one of Brisbane’s favourite parties each week.

With one foot firmly planted in the past, and the other running out the door into future sounds, the Sunday sound is centred around a great group of DJs, with bags of experience and a great selection of fine tunes crossing disco, funk, soul, house, boogie, hip hop and more, from the golden age of recording through to the do-it-yourself, forward thinking tech age. At the centre of this mess each week has been regarded local fixture DJ Cool Hand Luke, along with various accomplices including support from the international Sundae network, and some of Brisbane, and the world’s finest performers and promoters, and of course Luke’s partner in crime and effervescent cohost Chantal.

This week sees a celebration of all the things that make Sundays at Watt great: a great climate (and total disregard on the rare occasion it isn’t), great locale in the park, under the eaves of the majestic Brisbane Powerhouse, and the finest tunes bleeding out speakers anywhere in the city. We will be visited upon by some of our closest as Mark Briais, Scott Walker and Haiku drop by to throw a few in the mix. Each has decades of experience in Brisbane clubs and the keen ears requred to deliver the sublime sounds to round out your weekend. Join us this week as we celebrate 12 years here by the river, chilling in the sunshine!
