Sundae 18/3/14 :: Uncles Throwdown

This week our Sundae hosts are absent as they take the Brisbane sound to South East Asia, rolling through Cambodia and Thailand, and have left the party in the capable hands of the ‘Uncles’. Shannon L Marshall, Willie Costa and Haiku first came to mainstream attention in Brisbane as members of the highly organised Uncle outfit that occupied the top level of Family. Each Saturday saw an almost cultlike following drawn to the venue’s infamous Pod room to get frisky in the high pressure environment that pushed DJs to the limit and drove dancers wild. Fresh house and techno music, laid on a foundation of only the finest selections collected on vinyl that could do the business in every party environment, big room or small. This week though we are hoping to get a look inside their private collections of afterhours beats when they take over this week.

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. Willi came from a background of disco, rave, post punk, boogie and northern soul, and 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.

Preferring to shake it in the city’s larger sound systems, Shannon has long been a fixture in the major club circuit. Developing through an intense five year residency at Empire Hotel, and long term engagements with The Family and Therapy, and more recently, Alhambra, The Met and Brunswick Social; his ability to adapt to different party scenarios though have served to cement Shannon’s position as one of the city’s most reliable players.

Haiku is a new direction for Adrian Matyear, previously showing up in notorious establishments like Family, Press Club and Cloudland. Early, late, overnight the Haiku sound is deep, organic, chilled funky house, developed in part at Adrian’s long running Therapy experiment at Barsoma. Haiku had grown up with hip hop, bossa, big band swing, lounge and jazz though so his private collection can indeed present many moods.

Join us this week as three of Brisbane’s favourite Uncles take the reigns at Sundae. Shannon Marshall, Willie Costa and Haiku are experienced spinners both in the city’s nightspots, and down here at Sundae, so we trust they will gently guide the afternoon with a smooth soundtrack. We’ll see you by the riverside.

Sundae 29/12/13 :: Uncle Reunion

We are in the holiday season now! Following the celebrations of the week, and the impending New Year, we don’t really need an excuse to have a party down here at Sundae.

In Brisbane town, we have paid tribute in the past to clubs that had a distinct and influential effect on the state of dance music in the city, and this week we turn our attention to Uncle, aka “The Pod”. Hidden in the attic of Family, Uncle was church for the serious heads, and an unreal display of light and sound for the naive that strayed into the hedonism. Resident DJs and Lighting Techs were affectionately known as Uncles, and just like their namesake, definitely brought the boogie to the party.

Ranging from deep soulful house, through jacking Chicago and San Fran sounds to the more driving techno of Berlin, some of the most highly regarded DJs of our time passed through that building. Uncle residents held their own, and the rotating all star team of Brisbane DJs matched it with the best in the world to present a party that attracted a cult following for almost ten years. Sadly, Uncle is no more, however the Uncle DJs continue to school Brisbane, and this week we have a special treat for you in Brian Damms, Haiku aka Adrian Matyear and Willi Costa, bringing refined bags of house delight to Sundae crossing the different shades of intelligent funky house that we hope will take you back. Join us this Sundae as we remember Uncle. You know where we’ll be – see you in the sunshine.

Sundae 10/11/13 :: Shannon L Marshall

For over a decade, Shannon L Marshall has immersed himself in the club sound. With footings in early electronica, US deep and funky tech house, he has streamlined the sound with each presentation to the floor, maintaining a nocturnal longevity, though with an ever evolving creative take on cutting edge club rhythms.

Preferring to shake it in the city’s larger sound systems, Shannon has long been a fixture in the major club circuit. Developing through an intense five year residency at Empire Hotel, and long term engagements with The Family and Therapy, and more recently, Alhambra, The Met and Brunswick Social; his ability to adapt to different party scenarios have served to cement Shannon’s position as one of the city’s most reliable players.

Shannon’s talented and efficient ability to set up rooms has been called upon to support a diverse range of international visitors, both highlighting his own individual take on the sound whilst providing a respectful heat up for the guest. Derrick Carter, Ben Watt, Inland Knights, Chris Lum, Johnny Fiasco, Brett Johnson, Jim Baron (Crazy Penis), James Curd (Greenskeepers), Andy Caldwell, and more have all been assisted by Shannon’s early treatment of the club, and has made for some memorable events.

When coming to the Sundae party, Shannon packs a bag like a picnic. All the pieces for a great day in the sun, all neatly arranged and ready to serve up a feast. and all with the deep and funky style that you know that we love down here. Join us this Sundae for an extra helping, Shannon style. See you by the riverside.
