Other times, she goes with the flow, real-time, mixing up a musical journey with her DJ skills. Mellow or dancy, old school or fresh, it will be a total ‘Moodswing’!
Sunday 4 Dec : Brendan Willenburg – As part of the “Expansions” crew DJ Brendan Willenburg takes you on a mind-expanding journey through a tapestry of jazz, soul, cosmic funk, disco, Balearic, mellowtronica, boogie, rare groove, downtempo and various global influences. His music aims to bring you the beautiful, the divine, the sublime as it traverses some of the deeper, rarer, stranger and sometimes forgotten musical territory.
Saturday 10 Dec : Billsbry – Billsbry is the musical alias of Sydney / Eora based solo artist, Charlie Billsberry Fisher. Starting out experimenting with instrumental psychedelic music, Billsbry’s sound has progressively evolved incorporating soul, jazz and experimental soundscape to his repertoire.
Sunday 11 Dec : Dave Howell – The arrival of a record player and a pile of records at the home of a young lad in England led to an instant fascination with music. Clubs, gigs, warehouse parties, and record buying sprees followed, continues to this day and includes a broad range of influences but predominantly features chilled out electronic music… mostly.
Saturday 17 Dec : Trevor Brown – Multi-instrumentalist and electronic wizard will an electro-acoustic set of infectious beats and soulful sounds. Just returning from the European summer playing festivals in Austria, Croatia, Venice and Sicily, Trevor masterfully melds live looping, modular analog synths and saxophone, flute and percussion into a mesmerizing not-stop set of tunes, grooves and beats.
Sunday 18 Dec : Declan Kelly – Declan Kelly was born in Sydney, Australia to an Irish father and Maori mother. Having two strong ancestral ties made it no wonder that creativity and music was running through his blood. Having been the drummer for a number of great artists, Kelly learnt the craft of good songwriting, recording authentically and the mastery of studio production, as well as the delivery and fronting of a rockin’ live show.
