I love BDK and all but the OG flier deserves props as well.
Partying on Sunday is criminally underrated. Make the most of your weekend and come to every indie girl’s favorite bar, Chingalings, this Sunday as I play some tunes along with super cool guys Shantan Wantan Ichiban and Sonny Syah.
This event has just passed, but I want to make a note of it. For one, it was butt hot in there. The bar’s A/C was shot, and to make matters worse it was just as hot outside. Australia is an oven sometimes. Nevertheless it was a ton of fun spinning for that sweat infested room, and I got to play Computer Love. Win.
This was a fun one. I spun two sets, one at primetime and one to close out. Similar to the B-Side on cassette singles, the closing set was the winner. Some bullet points:
- Planet Asia and Copywrite were there. They were really happy when I played Just to Get a Rep. As they stood in front of the stage, I didn’t recognize them at first, so when they turned around to dap me up, I just thought “oh great, more dude props” and haphazardly gave them pounds and slaps.
- I opened up with Tyler, Creator’s Yonkers and it sounded reeeeeally good on a big sound system. I’m claiming first on playing OF at a gig in the southern hemisphere.
- Got one request the whole night. TLC’s Creep. I ain’t mad at that.
- Played Tom Scott’s TROY break for the first time at a gig. That whole song is so well known at this point, people eat it up.
- In the middle of the first set, my headphones decided for some reason not to play any bass or treble. Just straight mids. I do not suggest mixing in these conditions under any circumstances. Glad I made it through though. And annoyed that the headphones decided to work fine when I got home.
Hella late post part 1. This night was cool though. Started off kinda slow, got pretty packed by the end of my set, and then the legendary Leon Smith tore it up with a Biggie tribute. Nate Dogg had recently passed, so I had an excuse to play Indo Smoke. Any time you play Indo Smoke is a good time.
OH YEAH. There was a fight on this night. Some real hood rat shit. I hadn’t seen some hood rat shit in a minute. Kind of brought me back.
I was lucky enough to be one of the guests at the launch of Sydney’s latest greatest weekly rap jam, Sound Bombing. The first one was cool, but I hear that lately it’s been absolutely killing. Expect great things from this night.
I played the Message that night. Never played that before and may not again for a while, but at the time it fit.
This wasn’t all that packed, but all the people there were fairly fine dimes. And for some reason they really knew their rap stuff. Personal highlight was probably So Ghetto, which they knew all the words to.
Rocked the late set for this one. Can’t do prime time all the time. Late sets give you a bit of freedom, mostly because everyone is already drunk. Pumped the underrated classic Down and Out for maximum effect.
