This recording is from the closing set of The High Frequency podcast’s first party in Auckland held at Ink Bar earlier this year.


The dominant vibe of the night was minimal but I was excited to be playing at a time and a place that would lend itself to a heavier sound than I usually get to play and so headed in a heftier direction until one of the dancers up front asked for “more groove!”.

I’m always happy to fulfil a reasonable request when I can and so things took a turn towards soulful house which there was good energy in the room for. As 4am closing beckoned the Kelbin remix of Cloudy by Daphni (aka Caribou) seemed like a beautifully melodic way to conclude the evening and usher everyone out into the chaos of Karangahape Road’s Saturday night coming to its (licensed) end.
