VS WEEKLY SOUNDS #6

This weeks #vsweeklysounds comes from Sydney DJ duo LUSH, made up of Velvet Sea’s Luke Cheadle and good mate, Shawn Irving. The pair have been playing numerous gigs around Sydney as of late and are starting to make a name for themselves and their groove filled sets. “House, Not A Home.” is an epic mix…

VS WEEKLY SOUNDS #5

We missed a #vsweeklysounds last week, so this week we’ll have two. The first one, will be an album by a band called Swans, titled The Seer. They’ve been around since the 80’s (the front man is 58!!!) but you wouldn’t know that by listening to them. Their new album The Seer is, in my…

VS WEEKLY SOUNDS #4

It’s a balmy Tuesday after a weekend of horrendous storms and this #vsweeklysounds couldn’t be more fitting. It’s a mix by Mike Parker for the always amazing, Electric Deluxe podcast and it’s probably like nothing you’ve heard before. Deep crate digging with an envious flow and a refreshing sound. It’s an expansive listen and a…

VS WEEKLY SOUNDS #3

Today being a Friday and all, we thought this one should be a proper party starter and, once again, we couldn’t look past our boys, Cut Snake. They’ve just dropped a remix of Phoenix track Entertainment and it is a massive, deep house number. Big warm bassline and soaring synths, they’ve crafted a real bomb…

VS WEEKLY SOUNDS #2

This weeks #vsweeklysounds comes to your ears on a Friday and from our very good friends, Cut Snake. The infamous Aussie party starters have crafted a nice mix which, in my mind anyway, is a perfect warm up for your weekend party ways. Warm, Deep House, grooves that you will make you wanna dance. The…

VS WEEKLY SOUNDS

Due to the fact that we listen to, download, buy and play so much music, we’ve decided to start a regular weekly post recommending some of it. The posts won’t fall on a specific day, or follow a specific routine, which is simply because limiting them to a specific day would influence the music we…

VS#2

~ Next up in our mix series is one of Velvet Seas’ own, Luke Cheadle. Every now and then, in between the more well known DJs, we will put together mixes, playlists, soundtracks, whatever you want to call them, to keep the tunes flowing. This one is much more chilled then the first VS mix,…

LIGHT YEAR!

We’ve just become aware of a new site by good friends, and electro wondermen, Light Year. The boys have featured in 2 Many DJ’s heavily lauded live shows and have recently just smashed the hell out of the US on a nation wide tour. Before this site went live it was relatively hard to find…

JUST GO BAREBACK

The Bareback DJ’s are two of our best mates Leigh Sedley and Paul Fisher. Both very good surfers in their own right and both damn good DJ’s and producers. The boys are living in the US at the the time of writing, with Sedley more firmly based than Fisher, who is constantly galavanting around the…

JAMES DRAKE

James Drake is a musical genius. Never heard of him? Really? Well that’s good, because if you had of then you’d be living in a dream world. You see, the name James Drake is a play on the names of two, true, musical wonderboys James Blake and Drake. One, a post dubstep artist from the…

WEDNESDAY CHIME

There’s not much to say about this little mix other than it’s fricken’ rad. If your into a little bit of Lounge/Chillout/Nu-disco/Disco/Indy Disco then get your little ear drums into this mix. Covering songs by Michael Jackson all the way through to The Revenge, and other chilled out gems, it’s a great mix to put…
