When you get an invitation from legendary Melbourne DJ Boogs to do a DJ mix for Boogs’ Podcast Series, you know you must be doing something very very right. The maturity of Doakes’ DJ mixes transcend beyond his 23 years of age, and it was only a matter of time before he begun working his own original productions.
Doakes’ first release appeared on our ‘In The Clubs’ compilation, a ghetto house weapon titled The Hook. The track could be heard emanating from the clubs of Melbourne and festival stages throughout the 2016 summer and is the labels number one selling track on Beatport.
On This Side marks his first solo release on the label, and we look forward to many more from this extremely talented, hard working DJ/producer.
Tiny Tiny have been in studio lockdown since March this year. This is their second EP release for 2016 and presents a different but same vibe and energy from their first EP. From the outset, the concept of 4 EP’s was to provide a creative scope that would allow the pair to experiment and showcase their diversity and influences. With EP’s 3 & 4 to follow in the second half of 2016 followed by an album in 2017 the guys look determined to shape their own destiny. The duo will perform their debut live show at the upcoming Master Musicians Festival in Kentucky, July 8th.
(On the phone/through the wires/to the car)
She already knew her answer, and by the time his voice made it into the receiver, through the wires, and out the other side, she was ready to give it.
It was an easy decision, most of the time it felt like they were the only two people in a dead end town, other times it felt even lonelier. A trip to the city was in both of their futures.
(Bring along for the ride)
Windows. Down. Still. Sweating.
Does anything in this car still work? He divides his attention between the road and the million little minuscule things about her he finds irresistible and untouchable, while she connects the dots between stars from the passenger seat. Stars/Planets/Satellites…up ahead city lights.
(We are in the city)
That feeling as you get further and further from home like you might eventually float off the planet.
They drive straight into the teeth. Hard to know if it is excitement, nerves or both. Hard to know when to stop when you’ve never known where your going in the first place.
(DRIVE all night long)
It always seemed to him like the nights you want most to last forever are the ones that go by the very quickest, like tonight.). He wasn’t sure if they were friends, more, or just convenient. He just hoped that whatever it was, it wasn’t over. To him, this was a moment, this was a movie, this was something worth remembering. As for her, she rarely made these trips alone. She liked company.
I am lost in the ambience of low light, faces hidden in colours and drinks of champagne, vodka, and water. Sound is often too loud but i still understand what your saying. I’m not alone, because i’m in the music. I can hear you, just enough to see your lips move. Where are we going? Im in the club.
Suckmusic In The Clubs Volume 8 presents Doakes, Reece Hart, Spacey Space, Louis Emile & Rob Stag.
Im sure that there is nothing greater than the feeling of love. And suddenly, years will pass, and i begin to Think About You again. And if it comes and stays, then i shall live in this wonderful world with you. And if it leaves me, i will hurt…as much as i did the last time. Either way, i feel alive when your in my breath. TT
T-Rek has never given a fuck. He has always done his own thing. He is an innovator, a creative mind, whos early dance records lay origin to the ‘Melbourne Sound’. A real musician, drummer, guitarist, singer, tweaker, hardware, software, producer and DJ. We are proud to present the next wave of T-Rek.
“Still Born Monsters is a song I’ve had kicking around in various states of production for several years. Some of the music in the track comes from a live onstage jam at Revolver Upstairs with the ’T-Rek & The Freakshow Disco Community Group’ live band line-up of 2008. It’s a long psychedelic/guitar/disco/drone/boogie kinda thing that moves through several different sections, and is one of my favorite songs that I have never gotten around to finishing and putting out. I haven’t released much in the way of club music for a couple of years, and have for a while now wanted this to be my next single, as it in equal parts references where I have been at musically in the past, but ties equally to where my current club music production is heading. It also strongly references two of my favourite producers of dance music, Moodyman and Queens of the Stone Age.” – T-Rek.
