LKS X MIDNIGHT SWIM
[SATURDAY – 14.01.2017]

Low Key Source x Play Bar Syd presents a special event showcasing local taste-maker music labels that we support for their forward-thinking vision and eclectic sounds. These labels are enriching our Australian music culture and creating a strong network of music lovers nationwide. Big or small, we aim to celebrate these labels for their tenacity, hard work and passion in creating a more cohesive and supportive local stomping ground. If it moves us, you’ll hear about it.

To launch the first event we thought it would be fitting to feature our good friends Midnight Swim.

MIDNIGHT SWIM is an independent record label, radio show and music consultancy company based in Sydney. They have a global outlook, celebrating the richness, diversity and quality of music coming from all corners of the globe.

The Midnight Swim radio shows are musical journeys not bound by genre, tempo or style exploring soulful, esoteric, classic and new sounds from around the world.

Label owner Tom Studdy has been a strong part of our local music community keeping Sydney on it toes as a DJ over the last 10 years. Whether it’s keeping the crowd dancing to rare grooves, Afrobrasilian boogie, or promoting abstruse sounds deeply drenched in soul or jazz music, Tom Studdy has never failed with his strong vision to promote quality music not only to dance to, but to educate. LKS x PB label launch

By his side at our label showcase will be DJ Edseven! Armed with a unique ear, deep collection and a skill for combining diverse sounds, Sydney’s Edseven has built a solid reputation as a DJ over the last decade as well as a producer/remixer and more recently as a promoter.

A collector of many styles, a typical Edseven dj set could include anything from Detroit Hip Hop to Nigerian Funk, Broken beat to Chicago House, Classic Soul to Future Beat and beyond.

His recent EP “BROADSIDE” was released on Midnight Swim featuring three unique and stellar remixes from Beat Spacek, Peret Mako and CHASM.

EDSEVEN (Lioness Presents) //

jdilla_playbarsydney_07022015_19

Armed with a unique ear, deep collection and a skill for combining diverse sounds, Sydney’s edseven has built a solid reputation as a dj over the last decade as well as a producer/remixer and more recently as a promoter.

A collector of many styles, a typical Edseven dj set could include anything from Detroit Hip Hop to Nigerian Funk, Broken beat to Chicago House, Classic Soul to Future Beat and beyond.

This musical range and the technical ability to hold it all together has seen edseven called upon to support international acts including Funkineven, IG Culture, Recloose, Grooveman Spot, Nickodemus, Suff Daddy, Linkwood, Samiyam, EL-P, Dj Food, Frank Booker, Mark de Clive Lowe, Raf Daddy, Peanut Butter Wolf, Pablo Valentino, Mark Pritchard, Jose James, Waajeed, James Pants, Domu, Dj Spooky etc.. Edseven has also held regular local guest spots and residencies across Australia including Soul of Sydney, The Croft Institute (Melb), Space is the Place, Rootdown (Melb), Dust Tones, Future Classic, Tonic Lounge, Playground Weekender, Adelaide Festival, Sugar, Vibes on a Summer Day and Headroom…

Edseven’s production work draws upon the varied influences with releases including the dusty Off Kilter Hip Hop of his first two EPs on Straightup Recordings to his future focused ‘Pigeon Clap’ released via Frequency Lab on their Headroom compilation. Remix work for artists including Cookin’ on 3 Burners, Dj Regal, Onur Engin and Rephrase..

In 2012 with the help of Melbourne stalwart Inkswel, edseven started a series of warehouse parties under the name “Lioness Presents’. The aim of this venture was to showcase top shelf international producers/djs in intimate Sydney warehouse spots. Delivering the initial goal in spades Lioness brought out West London artist Funkineven (Eglo Records), prolific master musician/producer Mark de Clive Lowe (Tru Thoughts), French House/Beats don Pablo Valentino (MCDE/Faces Records), cult label Firecracker’s Linkwood, Steve Spacek (Africa Hitech /WARP) and Recloose (Planet E).. Lioness Presents has gone from strength to strength with good friends Henry Compton and Fred Tectonic joining the crew soon after it’s inception.

Late 2012 also saw edseven start a weekly Hip Hop, Funk, Beats, Soul and Afrobeat night ’73 ’til Infinity’ in his home suburb of Newtown co presented by Sydney institution Soul of Sydney.. this monthly event has evolved to now call Surry Hills’ Play Bar home.

His latest venture has been building and establishing PLAY BAR SYDNEY. After drawing inspiration from his last stint in Melbourne and meeting his partner & co-owner Sarah, the two worked hard to build what they hope to be for many years to come, an institution that brings decent music into Surry Hills Sydney. He has programmed every bit of music that has come through the venue and supported a huge range of hiphop, breakbeat DJs and just awesome beat-makers and producers both local and abroad…
