Woah. There are few parties in Sydney where people come to dance like they do at Dutty. Maximum jiggling. Intense booty shaking. Great crowd packed into the sweaty Goodgod Danceteria for a night that feels like authentic Caribbean basement party. Big love for everybody that came down, those competed in our Dance off and our winner – Jess Subbs.
Catch you at the next party. Saturday April 26 at Goodgod Small Club. In the meantime, check out Shantan’s dancehall tape…

I have done New Year at Goodgod for the past couple of years and this has been the best one yet. So much fun. So many great people. So much great music. So loose. So much sloppy mixing :D
People poured into the Front Bar from 10pm to a soundtrack of 80s pop and soul vibes. It didn’t take long before the 80s Homecoming Prom was heaving. Leading up to midnight, Levins took control of the decks starting 2014 with a healthy dose of Prince.
We opened up the Jiggy Year 10 Formal in the backroom at midnight, starting off with some really slow Mariah and building our way up into a frenzy. With both rooms swinging into the early hours of New Years Day, we couldn’t have hoped for a better way to start the year.
Thanks to everybody that played – Mike Who, Radge, Ariane, and Joyride – Levins for partnering in organising it – and all that came along, dressed up, drank and danced. So good!
LA via the universe super producer Exile touches down in Sydney on thursday the 5th of December. He has brought along partner in crime and collaborator Choosey from the Dirty Science camp for their huge live show, which is yep you heard it FREEE. They come through as part of the Monthly Red Bull Music Academy nights held at Sydney’s iconic Goodgod Danceteria. The bill also includes Aus Hip hop Royalty in the form of Chasm running a special Soundsystem set and Sydney’s own The Tongue, with Stolen Records favourite dj of all time Naiki filling the gaps.
Memphis Millions, Disco Samba and the June Lodge vinyl
Hello. That’s English for ‘Hello’ because I’m in The Netherlands where everyone speaks English! I always feel like a dickhead going to a non-English speaking country flapping my gums and speaking the only language I know how to speak in my shrill North American accent. But alas, I’ve been reminded that I’m not that much of a dickhead (I still sound American) and it’s ok to speak English in Holland, so chill bruh.
After 25hrs, I finally made my destination (and yes, it took me 2 weeks to write a post – jet lag and complications bitches). Flight was great! I was flying with some delicious New Zealand rugby players, wine was flowing and the woman next to me only tried to put her bum on me twice. Then things started to get dark and I remembered that I took quite a strong tranquilizer before boarded and just like that – boom, I’m knocked the fuck out – for 10 hours. I SLEPT FOR 10 STRAIGHT HOURS on an international flight. If that doesn’t break some kind of record I don’t know what will. When I finally came to I was in Abu Dhabi. I won’t bore you with details but there was a shit-ton of cheese, Arab bread and wine. I was happy.
On my second day here, my friend Tom arranged for us to have a play date. We took a train to Antwerp, Belgium where my day was filled with sites, strong beer and vinyl shopping. There was soooo many records and look, as an amateur, I wanted them ALL. Classics, new shit, obscure French Canadian country hits, local music and so much more. However, I bucked the fuck up, kept it real and for 13 Euro I think I made off with quite a steal. Los João’s Disco Samba literally made me dance like I was in carnival and I couldn’t pass a throwback to 70s soul and funk with the Memphis Millions LP (featuring Isaac Hayes’ theme from Shaft!). I took it easy on this trip as my friend has a lot of records already (such as June Lodge and Rick James), but I’m eager to get more. Stay tuned.
Electric Punanny killed this. I was having so much fun, I started backing it up on everybody. Haven’t danced as inappropriately for a while.
With amazing selection and mic skills, Jasmine Solano and Melo X give us a taste of what happens between the sweaty walls of Sway nightclub in New York at Electric Punanny. They brought the vibes. Goodgod’s Danceteria was full with asses bouncing everywhere. We definitely met the booty shaking quota one comes to expect from a Dutty Dancing.
Louis played as well, as did I (though maybe I was a little too turnt). We danced, we drank, we were merry, then ended up at Super Bowl eating Congee.
This is a project that recently dropped from some fam in the far north of Chile in Iquique, a place i like to call my home away from home.
The Hommies fly the flag high for weed rap, sun, beach life and blissed out vibes that seem to go hand in hand with this part of the country. Made up collectively of Art Biz, Okram, Jo$e Spaace, Sanel y Dj Bootleg aka Discos G, These are some talented dudes from a place you should def check into if your in that part of the world.
Burn one down, check the tape and if your ever travelling through make sure you look them up, more than hospitable crew!
