ATTENTION VINYL LOVERS: Mixtape Launch + free records!
Saturday the 2nd of November sees a super-charged night of music at The Shadow Electric – Open Air Cinema and Bar at The Abbotsford Convent with freakadelic Bollywood goodness from The Bombay Royale, hot salsa and Latin funk from San Lazaro and a selection of rarities, versions and remixes from the funk and soul closet with Karate Boogaloo ( The Cactus Channel rhythm section) and their guests. It’s all in aid of launching HopeStreets Tropical Brunswick Mixtape, mixed by DJ Jumps.
Unreleased gold from HopeStreet Recordings’ 2014 release schedule and hits and obscurities from the back catalog rub shoulders in the mix under the deft hands of DJ Jumps. Latin and afro bump up against funk, soul and spaghetti cinematica. It’s that hot analog sound you love! The first 50 through the door receive a Hopestreet showbag containing the mixtape by DJ Jumps and a free 7″ vinyl from the catalog.
Check the Hopestreet site, or facebook event for more info. You’ll have to be early to score that free Showbag and 45!!!
The Diggin’ Sydney website is back online after our hosts kindly deleted our site. They are obviously not fans of vinyl… But enough about that!
If you’re headed for Sydney – here’s all the essential info to make your next trip a nightmare for your girlfriend, unless of coure they too know the virtues of the vinyl. The new Sydney Guide and website cover the CBD, Inner East and Inner West… so at least your girlfriend/partner/wife/children can find something nice to amuse themselves while you do!
