The Cliff Dive / Free Entry All Night Long
Exclusive 2 hour Vinyl Sets from…
TOUCH SENSITIVE (DJ Set)
JOHN WALL (Fuzzy)
Back by popular demand, UNDR ctrl presents Strictly Vinyl 002; a specially curated FREE event celebrating the much loved vinyl art form. No CDJs, no laptops, no USB keys... simply 100% wax all night long played with style by three distinguished vinyl connoisseurs.
For this next exclusive edition, we welcome Touch Sensitive, Fuzzy director John Wall and lady about town Ariane to the decks. They follow in the footsteps of Canyons, Softwar and Marcus King who kicked off the Strictly Vinyl series inn fine style over Easter.
Anyone who knows Touch Sensitive aka Michael Di Francesco will know the man oozes class, backing it up with 5000+ records in his collection. Boy, did ‘Pizza Guy’ put 80s italo back on the map, securing him a Top 40 spot on triple j’s Hottest 100 and headline shows all over the globe. His live show (slappin’ da bass) is the stuff of legend, but for one night only we’ll get to hear a rare DJ set from the former Van She man laying down that type of italo, funk and disco that inspires him to do what he does. This really is one for the heads.
John Fuzzy is someone we’ve long admired; director at Fuzzy since its inception in ’96 and producer of some of the best festivals in Australia – Parklife, Listen Out, Harbourlife and Field Day to name a few. The Fuzzy office is split between staff and a jaw-dropping A-Z tracked vinyl collection that tops 20,000. YEP – 20,000 records!!! It’s been a while since John’s last set, so this is a truly not-to-be-missed occasion. The problem is, with so many records, what’s he gonna play? “I’ve got some super rare 80s disco that I’ve never heard out before, plus some Balearic and UK soul from 89-92.” We really can’t wait! We’re thrilled to have Ariane bring the night home in full hands-in-the-air glory with some late 90s / early 2000s house vibes. Ariane is the ever-versatile DJs DJ with residencies at Goodgod, Flinders and beyond and such amazing taste.
Don’t forget, entry is FREE ALL NIGHT. Strictly Vinyl 002 goes down with the good people at The Cliff Dive on Sunday 8th June as part of the Queen’s Birthday long weekend.
