Gonna be massive! We have an all-star line-up playing live in the store from 2pm, along with DJs playing their favourite records from start to finish. We also managed to ‘expand’ Northside for one day only; we’ll be taking over the old Birdman Eating premises for the day – creating a super funky pop-up garage sale/jazz dance room/Northside funkmosphere Experience/chillout room/hectic dancefloor… We’ll have crate upon crate of vinyl goodness in the pop-up store – giving the dedicated diggers the chance to keep diggin’ while the bands blow up in the Northside Store. The pop-up store will also play host to a range of DJs throughout the day. Special guests appearing on the day include Remi, GL, Sex on Toast, Deep Street Soul and Man Made Mountain.
Check the poster for all the details, set times and info. You know we’ll have all the Record Day exclusives and Northside’s incredible $20 reissue crates! Amongst the special Record Store Day releases are a new 7″ from REMI (For Good feat. Sampa), New GL 7″, Sex on Toast reissue 7″, new Man Made Mountain 12″ and the brand new 7″ from Deeps Street Soul…. We’ve also teamed up with Roundtable Records for a special reissue of the 1975 Aussie jazz-funk-fusion classic, ARENA. Everyday is Record Store Day at Northside.

Here is the speech by Stan Grant. It was delivered at the IQ2 Racism Debate on October 27 2015, but released by the Ethics Centre online only last week. Timely, that it is here just before January 26th, what is called “Australia Day”. Listen to this speech and realise that all is not well in Australia. Nor has it been for a long time. To make a change you have to understand. Here is some clarity from a man called Stan.
The Australian Dream, we are better than this.
Today, NORTHSIDE RECORDS is CLOSED.Nothing to celebrate here.
Damn, shit is blowing up on our door step again. This time it’s Silent Jay and Jace XL, taking the underground by storm with the release of their debut “SACRIFICE” EP on UK based label Rhythm Section. We are lucky enough to have this talented duo appearing live instore on Friday January 15th to celebrate the release of the new EP (that has already sold out worldwide!). Fortunately, we will have exclusive limited stock of the cassette EP available on the night. Don’t miss your chance to bag one – and more importantly, don’t miss your chance to see Silent Jay X Jace XL live at Northside.
Cop a listen of the new EP right now. SACRIFICE
From the press release: “Coming straight out of Melbourne with plentiful attitude, Producer/multi-instrumentalist Silentjay teams up with fellow Hiatus Kaiyote backing vocalist, Jace XL to present ‘Sacrifice’, a mini album of epic proportions.
At once sincere and heartfelt, the songs do not shy away from the playful influence of 90s RnB – a sound that is a defining influence on this EP, which despite clocking in at just under 30 minutes, attains a level of artistry and conceptual cohesiveness that many artists could only dream of. Another VERY serious record from an impossibly fertile Melbourne.“
Some things are just meant to go together – peaches & cream, cheese & vegemite, Pete Rock & CL Smooth and so on. Silent Jay X Jace XL are no exception. Spread it thick!
