Click n collect is available at staggered times, to maintain safety for all.

Massive respect to @hiatuskaiyote for offering to do a free show on the funky streets of Fitzroy. Big thanks to City Of Yarra for facilitating a potential STREET SHUTDOWN for the funk!

Hopefully it happens one day again.

Storied of Nai Palm flying to Rio to play and record to Ross Wilson’s wild jukebox and one of his favourite 45’s Mtume’s Juicy Fruit”!!!

So, it looks like Melbourne keyboardist Simon Mavin is starting to turn heads overseas, seriously. Simon plays with many bands around town, his main focus being Haitus Kaiyote at the moment, but his sound is spread around The Bamboos, Kirkis, Quarter Street Orchestra, The Putbacks, Swooping Duck and I am sure many more. (he can fill me in later…)

Last weekend he played in the band for Miguel Atwood-Ferguson at the HiFi bar. This show was reviewed for The Guardian and Simon’s performance caught the ears of reviewer David James. In it he says….Especially impressive was keyboardist Simon Mavin, whose playing would not have been out of place in the electric bands of jazz legend Miles Davis.” You can read the rest of the review here.

Make sure you check out this local player while you can. He is not alone too, there are many players who are right up there with Simon, its just that David James hasn’t heard them yet. You be the judge and go out and see the crazy talent we have in this town.

We are very excited to present the second release from Northside Records, “The Soul of Melbourne”. The official release date is November 9, 2012, however copies of 18-track CD have been fast-tracked to Northside to coincide with RRR Album of the Week! Get yours now.


Check the RRR blurb:
This extremely impressive compilation is an acknowledgement and celebration of Melbourne’s vibrant and vital soul music community. Presented by two of the city’s leading champions and proponents of all things soulful (Northside Records’ and Triple R’s Chris Gill and The Bamboo’s Lance Ferguson) the eighteen track collection showcases some key local jazz, funk, R&B and modern beat-based outfits. Recent releases from artists such as Chet Faker and Kylie Auldist are highlighted, and featured alongside rare and unreleased songs from The Public Opinion Afro Orchestra and new spiritual jazz group Menagerie.

That’s right! 18 hand-picked tunes (inc. 4 previously-unreleased exclusives) from the cream of the Melbourne soul scene. Featuring THE BAMBOOS, SASKWATCH, THE CACTUS CHANNEL, KYLIE AULDIST, ELECTRIC EMPIRE, CLAIRY BROWNE & THE BANGIN’ RACKETTES, HIATUS KAIYOTE, AKOLOTL, COOKIN’ ON 3 BURNERS & more. The official website for this record/project will launch on November 9. Stay tuned.

The official “unofficial” release party happens as part of AWME – with a stellar line-up of local artists joining forces with AWME and Northside Records to present what will be once of the most epic nights of Soul and Funk witnessed in Melbourne in recent times. Thursday Nov. 15 at Hi-Fi, Catch The Bamboos, Saskwatch, Electric Empire and more. Full details here. And that’s not all! Friday 16th Nov. sees Deep Street Soul at the Lounge, supported by Sietta and the Northside DJs (Chris Gill Experience, DJ Manchild, Mistarex, & Lewis Can Cut).
