so my week in melbs is coming to a close.. my legs are sore, my eyes are heavy and my head is throbbing. so much fun. and i still have tonight and tomorrow night to go. yikes.
i felt like propping myself up on some beats from the tech-house end of town today, but seeing as though my music is still located in sydney, that mission was destined to fail.
instead, i had to "settle" for these next two mixes which i must say soothed my hungover ears and even got my weary toes tapping (as much as they could)..
i hope (and am sure) that most of you will be intimately acquainted with caribou and his latest album 'swim'- it really is an absolute gem.. off the back of it, the live caribou band is heading off on a highly anticipated world tour, accompanied by an ep which features six unreleased tracks and this quirky dj mix..
the eclectic, world-music flavoured track choice seems to remind me of the avalanches dj mixes (which is definitely a good thing).

caribou are slowly making their way around europe and the us (no australia yet).. check the tour dates here..
winter in sydney is rapidly approaching which means a whole lot of cold, cranky people patrolling the city streeets on a saturday night. everyones favourite label/party starters future classic have decided to do their bit to prevent weekend shivering by throwing open the doors of the civic every saturday as part of what they are calling 'adult disco'..
the launch party will be taking place on may the first (thats next weekend).. no word yet as to any headliners, but the strength of the local future classic djs (jimi polar is a master) is easily enough to get me there. expect disco done in a calm, collected and thoroughly adult(erous?) way.
to drum up some support, the fc crew put together this mix which is an absolute pearler and goes from the funky right through to the chinstroking end of disco.. tensnake makes a couple of awesome appearances, as does holy ghost!, azari & ill and joakim (just to name a few).
that escape from new york track is an absolute banger..

if you head on over to the adult disco site, you can get free entry to the launch by simply signing up to the mailing list.. hope to see you there!
oh and a quick plug for fellow sydney blogger andy (from disco delicious) and a party that his new label death strobe are throwing this sunday at bondi social club..
if you are in the area on sunday, you should definitely get in there and show some support - death strobe is one of the most exciting things happening in sydney at the moment, and mr webb sure knows a thing or two about jumping on the ones and twos.. if you are looking to have some fun this anzac day, this will be the place to have it.
