What are you up to this Saturday morning? Come hang with me, DJ Dr Hitchcock, and my friends at Cuppo on Melville Road in Brunswick West. I’m gonna be mixing a live blend of rock and electronic music. It’s not a big space but the vibe is nice, there’s a fireplace, they make great coffee and the best toasties in all of Brunswick West 😉
In this set you might hear tunes from the likes of Fruit Bats, Toro Y Moi, Cantrips, Mystic Braves, Oasis, The Exbats, Chastity Belt, Arcade Fire, Working Men’s Club, Bolis Pupil, Steve Darko, Terr, Daniel Watts, Queer On Acid, and maybe Kate Bush…
2022 has been a huge year so far which makes it tricky to get around to creating a banging electronic DJ set. Me and my whānau moved from Ōtautahi | Christchurch, Aotearoa to Brunswick West, Naarm | Melbourne; and obviously world events have been mad crazy. So in between moving countries, dodging covid, unpacking boxes, finding new schools, settling in 2 young kids into a new city and culture I’ve still found time to work on a electronic DJ set.
So here it is! This set has a real sense of rhythm and groove. The start relies on sophistication and attitude with beats and pieces bridging the middle. Harder beats come on after that with a real feel of that mid 2000’s electroclash vibe. Towards the end prog makes itself felt and the whole set is book-ended with some big 90s house. Listen in for the ear candy!

Raf – Self Control
FPU – Ocean Drive (Tiga’s White Linen Vox)
