Life begins at 40 so I celebrated my birthday in style at Smash Palace. Friends and whānau, new and old, braved the Ōtautahi cold for some funky beats, 80s steez and modern classics. Markj aka Mr Soundfood snuck in from Melbourne, Australia while the travel bubble was open and treated us to a truly Dr Hitchcock style set, Tom Cosm smashed the floor with some funky house and disco, Pinacolada Soundsystem brought the true 80s vibe to the night and I played what I usually do 😜; perks of being the birthday boy I guess.
Dr Hitchcock starts with soul, touches on indie dance, dusts off some house, rinses out the electro, flirts with DnB, floats by with goth-tronica and finally rocks it out! We’re on an absolute roll at Prima Roastery; it’s just such a lovely place to hang.
This set features tunes from Idris Muhammad, Fontaines D.C., Soulwax, Redlight, Hoodboi, Lifelike, The Chemical Brothers, Shinichi Osawa, LO’99, Tough Love, Urbandawn, The Horrors, Tame Impala, The Dandy Warhols, Blur and many more.
These sets at Prima Roastery really are a place where rock and electronic collide! This show features tunes from Nirvana, Brian Jonestown Massace, David Bowie, The Mint Chicks, Jimi Hendrix, The The, Human League, The Flying Lizards, The Orb, Orbital, Opus III, Lionrock, Chemical Brothers and oh so much more.
On Friday, 16th April 2021 Dr Hitchcock threw together his usual mix of Twin Peaks samples, Kiwi cafe vibes and eclectic tunes for a morning of downright fun.
This set included some serious disco, house, funk, big beat, electroclash, indie dance, glam rock and psych rock.
