NORTHSIDE RECORDS X WORLDWIDE FM instore feat. GILLES PETERSON + MELBOURNE MUSIC COMMUNITY full movie

On Tuesday November 20th we hosted an amazing live radio experience with GILLES PETERSON. We invited many local musicians to come down and talk to GILLES, not just musicians, but DJ’s, producers, and other integral members of this music community. Many came! It was a great day!

The band LANEOUS performed live as well. They were incredible. Featuring four songs off their upcoming album. Gilles was STOKED! 

Many great songs were played of these wonderful artists too. Some old gold was dropped in too, with a set by MIKE GURRIERI at the end too! 

The Melbourne music community is massive and we could only fit so many in, see interviews that Gilles and I conduct with 30/70, MILDLIFE, HIATUS KAIYOTE, THE BAMBOOS, KYLIE AULDIST, DIGITAL AFRIKA, DJ PREQUEL, not just musicians but also PRODUCERS, DJ’s and other integral members of the music community. 

It features GILLES PETERSON (BBC radio 6 / worldwide FM / Brownswood Recordings) and its a great snapshot of people who make other people feel…….and dance. The movie goes for just over 4 hours! We were sweating by the end of it. Who thought radio was that funky.

KAIIT new 45 out on NORTHSIDE RECORDS

Northside Records is proud to present the first physical release of Melbourne’s rising soul star

KAIIT

 “Natural Woman / OG Luv Kush Pt 2”

Kaiit burst onto the scene 15 months ago with her jaw-dropping debut single ‘Natural Woman’. After selling out her single launch she went on to perform at the highly regarded Golden Plains Festival, all on the back of a single track! This tune is a local anthem. 

The 20 year old, Paupa New Guinean born, Melbourne based singer is now back with another slice of soul goodness with ‘OG Love Kush Part 2’ so we at Northside decided to do the right thing and press these gems to a piece of 7” vinyl.

 

Limited to 400 copies worldwide.

Record Store Day 2018 at Northside!

Whoa! It’s that time again. Saturday April 21. We have a massive day planned. Bands, DJs, exclusive releases, 45s galore, a ‘FUNK CAVE’*, hobbyists on the cut, giveaways and prizes! 10am-7pm. Even the RSD Tour Bus will be arriving and departing at Northside throughout the day. Live performances from The Bamboos, Jaala, Remi, Plutonic Lab and Natalie Slade, Cool Out Sun + DJs in TWO ROOMS all day long. Your favourite community radio jocks from PBS and RRR will be joined by some of our favourite customers, label owners and the Northside Records soundsystem – dropping knowledge and keeping the vibes rolling until dark.

It’s been our policy in recent years that RSD performers should have a record to present for Record Store Day – and let’s just say this year is an exceptional year! You may want to get out of bed early if you want a piece of Record Store Day history. Every band has a brand new 45 or LP released on the day. Some of these upcoming RSD releases have been previewed on critically acclaimed and internationally renowned community radio shows such as GET DOWN, MYSTIC BREW, THE BREAKDOWN and the THE BLEND. Catch those shows again this week for more tasters.

Full details of Saturday’s action will be available soon. * THE FUNK CAVE: Once again we are able to occupy 238 Gertrude for the day.  We’ll have crates of all-sorts + electronica grab-bags, pop-up DJs, refreshments, lounges, coloured lights and room to dance. If you subscribe to our newsletter you’ll get the scoop at 11am on Thursday. If you don’t subscribe, you should – or watch this space for updates.

And, if that’s not enough – we have a superfine release that comes out on Northside Records’ label, this Friday, April 20. The Seven Ups  return with their third album ‘Commandments’, and they just keep getting better. Rather than describe the music, below is the album artwork that looks a lot like the album sounds! Sadly they can’t be with us on Record Store Day, but we’ll have the record for sale – and more exciting news about their official launch coming soon. Don’t forget – it’s Record Store Day everyday at Northside.
