Errr… Somebody give me 5 litres of water. That was just way too bigger dose of fun on a school night. This week in Sydney has been crazy artists on the Steresonic tour popping up at Sydney Clubs for some secret and not so secret sets. Both Brodinski and Geffenstein were sighted playing hip hop sets at the Flinders, while across town Major Lazer were bringing bedlam to a small nightspot. I thought our Destiny’s Child tribute was big. The line for this went all around the block. If Major Lazer playing a Bashment Party at Goodgod was meant to be a secret, it was a very poorly kept one. It was also meant to be a Reggae, Dancehall, Bashment party, but after Walshy Fire dropped Daft Punk it became something else. Too much crazy for a small hot dingy little room.
Was it a secret show? I don’t know. The line wrapped around the corner, so if it was a secret, it was poorly kept.
Diplo or Mike Who? Can’t really tell from this distance…
Who played? Walshy Fire, Jillionaire, Black Chiney and Diplo.
Was it fun? I’m still dancing.
The only low-light of the night was budding videographer and all around nice guy Aiden, got one of his cameras stolen. He was filming the night so that us and the whole world can enjoy it forever in cyber space; until some dickhole decided to pocket something that wasn’t theirs. Not cool. It’d be nice if you gave the camera back. But if you don’t I hope you step in dog poo.
This morning Blue Mountain’s beat wizards Hermitude covered Major Lazer this morning with Tom & Alex on triple j. With the help of Elana Stone and Chaos Emerald, they played a version of the song Get Free. Thoughts?
A sad, but happy affair. For more than a year, Mike Who has been putting in work behind the decks on Stolen Records. Bringing such amazing DJ skills, and a fantastic taste and knowledge of hip hop, Caribbean and Latin music. This was his last show before he moves to the north of Chile. Make sure you are at our going away party for him BADONKADONK at GOODGOD on Saturday.
Also we were joined by experimental indie rapper, Busdriver. What is it about The Good Life/Project Blowed rappers? He did one of the best freestyles we had on the show since we had Aceyalone on our show years ago. That scene of rappers originally based around open mic nights at The Good Life cafe has created some amazing emcees with a free flowing style of freestyle. Listen to this for Busdriver spitting on ‘Niggas In Paris’ and ‘Shutterbug’.
