Once again the Pineapple Republic massive brought their unique brand of latin and caribbean heat to the Goodgod Danceteria. Special guests Huwston and Klue went deep on the african rhythms and the Doll Squadron 101 cracked necks with a killer live performance.
Here is a mix for you to listen to till the next party…
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.
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.

Who the heck is Cakes Da Killa? I didn’t know either until this show. He’s a badass MC, poet, lyricist and madd theatre buff from New Jersey and clearly a long lost cousin of the Panini family. Blinked and I missed it but he was in Sydney a little while back. Well spoken and dope on the mic, I’m kinda gutted I didn’t see him live. Next time…
Next we had Sydney artist The Tongue aka Toungue aka Tonuge aka The Teacher. When he’s not influencing the young minds of the future, dressing in drag for video clips and starting Twitter beefs he’s writing thought-provoking tracks and doing one hell of a job performing them. Here to promote his ‘Surrender to Victory’ tour The Tongue stopped by to talk about rap music and freestyle. And since he’s such a fan of beefs, Shantan had him play our occasional Stolen Records game “Cake” but altered for this instance to “Steak”. Winning 4.5 pieces of luke-warm IGA beef steak The Tongue humoured our presenter and answered all the hip hop beef questions correctly.
Wanting even more beef, he then dissed us in his freestyle, thus starting a Stolen Records v Tongue beef*.
You should listen to the show.
(*There’s no beef, it was a weak ploy to increase readership. Sigh…)

This Saturday Knee Deep is back to warm your winter bones . Your favourite three freaks Yelo Magic, Resort Styles and Mike Who have come directly from the velodrome to the discothèque to provide you with the finest Disco, Boogie and Future Funk heaters. This month they have also enlisted the special guest duties to one of the countries finest on the wheels DJ Shan Frenzie to take you on a ride through his deep crates.
The last two Parties have heaved with late night crawlers vibing till the almighty call of the burger gods. So once again we suggest you come and join us in the depths of the Tatler bunker and unleash your inner freak.
Here is a uber special mix by Mike Who that you can stretch or skate to at home before Saturday.
Just incase anyone wanted to know the sample from the start is from quite possibly one f the greatest ever dance scenes from a movie. This will be recreated live on Saturday at Knee Deep.
Ah, I had this whole plan of how my set was going to go, and then at the end of it I was going to be carried out the club like a god. But unfortunately my serato bugged out and died on me twice midset. Only after deleting a heap of Woody Allen and Disney films I had been downloading this week, did I continue problem free.
Beast of a night. Despite the rain folks came out in force, hungry for some rap music. Adit kicked it off with some tasty rnb and new hip hop gems.
I came on, fucked up the club with New Slaves midset. Gave it a pull up. Shit went off. White kids rapping that shit like they meant every word. Like it was their parents who experienced racism.
The homie Nacho Pop who saved my ass a few times when Serato committed suicide on me, came back on with heavy hitting, bass heavy club jams to really work out the Goodgod system.
And then Mike Who bringing it back with some old school hip hop gems to keep a significant the crowd hanging on till 4am.
We had fun. Hope you did to. Maybe we should do it again leading into summer. What do you think?
Listen: Busta Rhymes – Twerk Remix ft Nicki Minaj
Listen: Kendrick Lamar – M.A.A.D. City (Illusion Intro Edit)
At 11pm, when the club was empty, we had those doubts that every party host has – “Shit, nobody is going come. Nobody likes us. Think I will eat some worms”.
Fortunately, we avoided a diet of worms. By 12 midnight, the dancefloor was already heaving and a line gathered outside the door of Tatler as folks squeezed into our tropical basement party.
With Charlie Villas, Mike Who, Shantan Wantan Ichiban, Tropicante and Sr Bolivar throwing down Caribbean Rhythms more pineapples were kissed, inflatable palm trees were danced with, and all were merry.
Here is a mix I did to keep you going till the next party in mid-August!
People drank, danced and were merry. We kicked off with Huwston warming up the room with an all vinyl, high energy set of afro-latin funk vibes. By 11pm he had the dancefloor in full swing, ready for Mr Who and Ichiban to take over with a Moombah-Latin-Dancehall onslaught, then Sr. Bolivar and Tropicante took the night home with the crowd hanging on to every tune till the early hours of the morning. Through out the night 101 Doll Squadron brought the carnival vibes with a couple of explosive dance performances and costume changes.
