Edseven

After more than a decade DJing, promoting and helping cultivate Sydney’s broader Soulful beats scene, Australian Producer Edseven returns in a big way.

Inaugurating Midnight Swim’s catalogue with the firrst release, Edseven’s β€˜Broadside’ single sees the Producer upping the tempo and bringing a collective of heavy-hitting friends along for a dip. Beat Spacek, Peret Mako and Chasm all offer unique yet faithful renditions of the original in this hearty remix package that’s bound to be on high rotation at peak time and at sleep time.

Beat Spacek
https://soundcloud.com/ninja-tune/beat-spacek-alone-in-da-sun-1
Beat Spacek is the latest project from UK vocalist/producer Steve Spacek, a man who should really need no introduction. With boundless abilities, his work transcends genre and style – instead focusing more on swing, melody, vibe and atmosphere.

Tom Studdy

Midnight Swim label boss and Bondi Beach Radio host, Tom Studdy has made a name for himself blending all corners of past, present and future sounds into an eclectic, soulful and heady mix. Based in Sydney he has a global outlook, celebrating the richness, diversity and quality of music coming from all corners of the world.

DJ CMAN @ SOUL OF SYDNEY 5TH BIRTHDAY!

14717239_10154611491523607_5395539035481688773_n

So excited and blessed to play at Soul of Sydney’s 5th birthday party. I can’t give enough thanks to the crew who in insuring years have given me so many opportunities and helped me grow immensely as a DJ. I’m so proud and humbled to be apart of such an amazing movement. 5 Years ago at the first SOUL OF SYDNEY party on a rainy afternoon with just a handful of people, something special happened – i remember this day like it was yesterday, a DJ setup run by a generator with a handful of likeminded folks dancing to funk and disco music in the park. Later that day when the rain came it looked like all the fun would end, a decision was made to move the party 50m over into an indoor sandfilled enclosure ……. we partied til late into the night and the rest was history. Friendships were created and a musical culture was born based on the love of feel good music with age, ethnicity aside! Each and every party has been better than the last, and if you were quick enough to snap up some tickets for this party, i can’t wait to join you all on the dancefloor and share some music with you.

Crafted by Executive Chef Sebastien Lutaud, and pizza maestro Vincenzo Biondini, The Newport’s diverse marketplace of food experiences include Australian grass-fed beef burgers, ever-classic fish and chips, wood-fired pizzas, and a wide range of fresh salads.

For children and the young at heart, The Newport features a games area reminiscent of a vintage gymnasium – think badminton, ping pong, a giant magnetic Scrabble board, and exercise bikes that can charge mobile phones. The Newport also offers an exciting programme of free events and activities, with live music at the heart of the entertainment experience.
One of the most iconic venues in the country, The Newport is a historic destination that embraces the natural beauty of The Northern beaches and the generous spirit of the local community.
