Sorry for the lack of regular updates on this blog, things get little hectic here sometimes. Last friday night I ended up playing night long 8 hour set with my good friends – Open Records crew @ Cadence nightclub featuring Suspekt – 9-11, Rob Zobec 11-12.30, Eegor 12.30-2, D-NOX 2-4 and Ian Woodsman 4-5.
The night turned out to be very chaotic, with no lack of interesting characters floating around the venue and amazing selection of tunes ranging from deep to a prog spectrum. Everyone was in very good form so it was a genuinely pleasure to perform alongside such amazing artists.
For this week only you can also hear Suspect set on JJJ Mixup program http://www.abc.net.au/triplej/mixup/, hope you check it out. I’ll follow up with few photos and couple of video clips from the night shortly.
