So many haters. I was expecting it to be quiet on such a cold miserable night, but somehow we squeezed 500 people into that backroom of Goodgod. Chalk it up as another victory for R&B over everything.

Stay in touch. This was just the warm up, as we bring back the Player Hater’s Ball in the coming months.

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 😀

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!

In the 10 years that FBi 94.5 FM has been on air it has been making a huge contribution to making Sydney a better place to live in. It has been given huge support to exciting new music nobody else has been playing, and has also been the hub for many people that are opening businesses and putting on events that are enriching our city.

To celebrate we decided to put on a party. Not just any party. Possibly one of the best festivals in Sydney since ever. By the railroad in Chippendale, Carriage Works turned out to be a beautiful setting for a party. The crowd was a really good looking laid back bunch of people. And the line up was an amazing collection of friends of our station.

Here are some pictures mostly from the Hip Hop stage where the likes of Urthboy, Spit Syndicate, Joyride, Thundamentals, Kataylst, Big Village Family, Citizen Kay, Naughty Rappers Collective, Mike Who and me – Shantan Wantan Ichiban – peformed. Fun times.

LISTEN TO FULL SHOW: REGGAETON, JOYRIDE & CAKES

Yo!

Warming up to this Saturday’s Pineapple Repblic, we started off the show with some of the hottest reggaeton. We then rounded it off with some reggae and even got topical (not tropical) with The Herd’s 77%.

Joyride graced us with his presence and sat through a game of Cake where he miraculously got 5 out of 5. Joyride’s set was a mashup of classic hip hop and r’n b. Then it got pretty damn sexy.

Oh – and I ate the meanest, sweetest and juiciest navel orange. Shabba, Shabba, Shabba Ranks. Shabba, Shabba, Shabba Ranks.

The Player Haters Ball returns to the Goodgod Danceteria. This time to pay tribute to Dr Dre’s 2001 album. Joyride and his band of merry men gave these gangsta rap classics a pimped out soul reworking, while Levins, Shantan Wantan Ichiban and Joyride in DJ mode threw down jam after jam to keep the dancefloor heaving till the early hours of the morning.

Weren’t there? Tsk! Tsk! Tsk! Here is a little taste of what you missed out on…

Listen: Dr Dre – Fuck You

That old geezer that plays Christmas carols on the grand piano in David Jones, better watch out. Joyride is coming for your spot. He has a new mixtape covering Christmas classics. Give Bing Crosby a rest and throw this on during Christmas dinner.

Every second month, it is the R&B club night for people that don’t like R&B clubs. This time round we did a little tribute to TLC. Big ups to anyone that dressed appropriately with condoms on their clothing and boxer shorts as a beanie.
