CO-OP's Third Birthday with SAN SODA & BILL BREWSTER - Saturday 19th May @ One22


CO-OP PRESENTS SAN SODA (WE PLAY HOUSE/FCL - BERLIN) & BILL BREWSTER (DJHISTORY.COM - LONDON) AT ONE22 IN SYDNEY ON SATURDAY 19TH MAY FOR CO-OP’S THIRD BIRTHDAY, AS PART OF THEIR DEBUT TOURS OF AUSTRALIA

TICKETS ON SALE SOON FROM RESIDENTADVISOR.NET


According to commonly accepted knowledge, a three year old should be able to follow basic directions, sort objects by shape and colour, imitate the actions of adults and playmates, and express a wide range of emotions. Ah well, CO-OP’s always been something of a ‘special’ case.

Hard as it may be to believe, given our sluggish development, we are soon to celebrate our third birthday. The last two have seen the CO-Operative get loud and loose in fine style with our good friend Harri, however we’ve never been content to partake in any laurel sitting and so we’re doing things a bit differently to mark the occasion in 2012.

We’ve only engaged in a single headline show in the last twelve months for one reason or another, but it was a good one – Prosumer in late March. Good because of him, you and them (the venue, the staff, the other DJs et al), so we’re hoping that lightning can indeed strike twice as we host the forthcoming CO-OP birthday party at One22 on Saturday 19th May. The place is appropriately sized, appropriately late licensed and appropriately armed with an A-grade Klipsch sound-system, all of which makes it appropriate for another visit from us lot.

And so to the business of the musicism - amongst the aforementioned ‘lot’ will be a pair of international talents, both of whom will be shaking down exclusively for CO-OP in Sydney on their debut tours of Australia…

SAN SODA (WE PLAY HOUSE/FCL - BERLIN)



First up is a young man hailing from Belgium via Berlin – Nicolas Geysens AKA San Soda. Mainstay of the revered We Play House label and one half of production duo FCL with his friend, recording partner and WPH label owner Red D, San Soda’s DJing and production prowess have been in high demand across Europe and beyond over the last few years. Anyone who’s come across any of his mixes will know he effortlessly blends contemporary deep cuts with crate-dug joints from back-in-the-day to present a forward-thinking history of House that presses all the right buttons. With releases and remixes from his San Soda and FCL projects finding homes on leading labels including Freerange, Dessous, Delusions Of Grandeur and 20:20 Vision (who are soon to release the latter’s album), Mr Geysens is on fire in the booth and studio right now.

BILL BREWSTER (DJHISTORY.COM - LONDON)



Our second headliner is probably as well known as an author as he is a DJ, having co-scribed a pair of best selling books on the art and form of the disc jockey – Last Night A DJ Saved My Life and How To DJ Properly. Ladies and gentleman, Bill Brewster Esq. Whether he’s removing the roof from a club with his unique selection of deep and devastating ‘Ouse (he was one of Fabric’s first residents don’t you know), enchanting a backroom with a genre-bending set of Disco, Balearic, Rock and Hip Hop or playing perfectly judged chill-out tuneage by a pool in Ibiza, The Brewster is a man for all occasions. Allegedly, what he doesn’t know about DJing isn’t really worth knowing. A bloke of many talents, Bill also runs the highly regarded DJHistory.com website out of the UK, which has become THE go-to online destination for those with definite symptoms of dance music OCD. Likewise, his legendary Low Life parties (now in their 15th year, having started in NYC) continue to deliver substance and spectacle in equal measure every few months in London. Yes, he’s been a label head, yes, he’s produced records, yes, he’s got a family and a dog, but its as a DJ that he continues to inspire and practice what he writes/preaches most regularly and rapturously.

Support on the night will come, in some form, from the CO-OP DJs and possibly a couple of extra guest spinsters, and there may be a pleasant surprise or two still to be revealed for the assembled throng on 19th May if all goes to plan (i.e. we don’t oversleep and can remember our PIN number).

Resident Advisor, unsurprisingly, hold the keys to advance tickets to CO-OP’s third birthday uprising – show them what you’re made of.

Two’s company, three’s a crowd…

looks brilliant, i shall be there in spirit.

Last Night a DJ Saved my Life was a bit of a must-read back in the day. Can't wait to read their dissection of the modern-day 'DJ' who is actually not a 'DJ' or 'producer' at all. Hopefully that is in the works!

And muse, what you mean? Last Night a DJ Saved My Life is still a very relevant history lesson, it just doesn't account for the fake-DJs as you've mentioned.

Last Night A DJ Fucked My Wife - The Reality TV Show: Coming Soon (Pun Intended)

Tune in as 10 DJs from all walks of life (including at least one with a Dubstep haircut and one from Detroit) share an apartment (it won't have any soul or vibe so its apartment, not House, according to the production team) for 6 weeks while competing to see who can get the crowds at their respective gigs the most frothy with their pre-mixed but actually 'live' performances. Each week one of our Jockeys will be eliminated until only two remain, with the eventual champion receiving not only an Ableton upgrade but also the chance to screw (literally) their opponent's spouse to a soundtrack of their choice and garner all profits from the resulting sex tape.

Please note that only a limited amount of decent music will be harmed during the making of this program

Free drinks - for when good DJs just aren't quite enough...



The idea of this is partly to help us get cheaply lubricated nice and early, and partly to say thanks to those who have supported the CO-OPertative for the last three years. Cheers to One22 for helping us make this happen.

Froth on...

Willy Webster is an unannounced international for good reason - nothing to do with having to hold back his identity until another show sells out, more that nobody wants to reveal he's playing for them.

Forgot to mention that first release tickets are now sold out on RA. Second release are still only $25 + BF for two pedigree internationals, both here for their debut tours, and some other added birthday bonuses though, so don't be shy.

...and what better bellends to nonce around on the warm up than the That Keen bellends? None, thats what.

BJ and Radar will take flight from 9pm to 11pm before the international heat takes hold for pretty much the rest of the night, so now you know.

If the addition of this pair of loveable idiots to the lineup proves the tipping point for you grabbing a ticket that two debut sets straight out of Belgium via Berlin and London plus some free booze somehow couldn't, then here's where you need to be...

Standard : )...

CO-OP represents the meeting of a couple of not altogether proficient minds who have decided, in their sometimes questionable but generally well informed wisdom, that what Sydney really needs right now is a good old-fashioned, rough around the edges party, where that music stuff and everything that makes and breaks it is really important and everything else is, well, not. The CO-OPerative's primary intention to program, produce, promote and pimp, some pretty ridiculous (as in good) house party style events in someone else’s manor.

The fundamentals are simple – outstanding and exclusive DJ talent playing outstanding and exclusive music on a fuck-off sound-system in a suitably dark and dancer-friendly venue. Oh, and we won’t be stealing your wallet in a corner either (metaphorically speaking). We’re not planning on starting an empire, but we know there are others that worship at the alter of deep Disco and even deeper House who would prefer something laced with a little more love than your typical nightclub experience. Basically, we’re helping each other to help you, so you’re either with us or without us.

Welcome along...

For those of you who like reading and stuff, check out the following transcript featuring Nicholas (AKA San Soda) and Bill interviewing each other - provides some good insight into what both are into and about...

BILL BREWSTER INTERVIEWS SAN SODA…

BB: What's the best thing about growing up in Belgium?

SS: It’s easy to study and there’s a lot of really good food and drinks.

Have you ever met Fat Ronny?

Never, just know who he is.

What's your greatest moment as a DJ and why?

Playing our recent kickless remake of ESP ‘It’s You’ in Panorama Bar in the morning with the sunlight coming through. We’d just finished it a couple of hours before and it was a perfect culmination of music, people and emotions.

If you were going to be stranded on a desert island with one record, which one would it be and why?

This question is a nightmare, could pick so many, but for now: Slum Village ‘The Fantastic Volume 2’. Just love it so much, every track on it.

What's better, DJing or producing?

DJing, sharing the music is crucial and brings me way more joy. Producing is just another way of sharing music I think.

Why did you move to Berlin and how's it been since?

The question is “why did you stay in Belgium so long”! There’s not much there that interests me there apart from the music scene in Brussels maybe. I always found the general nightlife culture in Belgium to be very hypocritical and narrow-minded with not much left of the rich musical heritage of the 80s and 90s. I have a lot of respect for the few promoters left trying to push quality music though…

So far it’s been wonderful in Berlin although I’ve only had a couple weekends here. Really enjoying the food, people, nice spots in the city and the music. Excited about spending some time here in the summer for sure.

What's your number one favourite can't live without it record of 2012?

Omar-S ‘Tonight’ (FXHE)

What are you most looking forward to about coming to Australia?

Going to the zoo, meeting the people and seeing how they party over there.

If you were allowed to play just one tune at a birthday party, what would it be and why?

Bobby Brown ‘Two Can Play That Game’. Surely the best present ever…

Do you have a favourite record to finish a set with and if so, what is it?

Not one favorite but preferably something slow and sexy like Deniece Williams ‘Free’.

What's the best set you've seen/heard from another DJ this year?

Marcellus Pittman at Panorama Bar in Berlin and Theo Parrish at Corsica Studios in London.

Which producers should we be watching out for in 2012 and beyond?

Locked Groove, Pomrad, Mr. Beatnick, Het Collect-Ief Deruyter, Johannes Albert and Kevin Reynolds.

SAN SODA INTERVIEWS BILL BREWSTER…

SS: How is your record collection organised and how often do you browse through it?

BB: It's organised in categories and in alphabetical order (I'm a librarian at heart). I have so many it needs to have some organisation or I'd never be able to find anything. Currently, I'm spending a lot of time in my record room, because I'm trying to prune my record collection down by about 2,000 to make it more manageable, so I've been re-assessing a lot of stuff I have.

Describe your ultimate dance party (size/location/DJs etc.)

My ultimate dance party is Low Life, my own party. We started it so we could act out our fantasies, I suppose. I think the ideal size for a great party is generally nothing over 5-600, maybe one or two rooms. A great crowd (word of mouth is the best publicity). If I had to pick a fantasy DJ line-up it would be Grandmaster Flash circa 1981, Danny Tenaglia circa 1994 and David Mancuso circa 1970.

What’s the biggest misconception DJs have about their crowds?

I'm not sure it's a misconception, but I think a lot of DJs play without acknowledging they have a crowd or even responding to them. I've seen plenty with their heads down as though they're in their bedrooms still. Good DJing is all about that interaction between the two, that's where the magic is.

What’s your favourite animal and why would/wouldn’t it be suitable for a club environment?

I love cocker spaniels and they wouldn't be suitable for a club environment because they hate loud music ;)

Which period in music history is most significant to you as a DJ now?

I would say the years between 1970 to 1976 are the most significant, because within that timescale everything we take for granted now was created, from the sound system as we know it today, the mixing DJ, the modern club environment, plus the creation of Hip Hop and Disco, both of which are the foundation for everything around now.

If you could own any piece of equipment in the world, musical or otherwise, what would it be and why?

A Vincent Velocette.

What’s the longest set you’ve ever played?

When we first started doing Low Life in London, I was the only DJ, so I played from the start at 10pm until whenever it finished (6-8am). I've done nine hours a good few times.

What doesn’t belong in a DJ booth?

Other people's coats.

What are you most looking forward to about coming to Australia?

I'm looking forward to seeing a culture that is both really similar to the UK but also very different. Plus the chance to catch up with some old friends while I'm there, like Colin Daniels, who I know from when he was A&R at Mushroom in London in the early 90s.

If you were allowed to play just one tune at a birthday party, what would it be and why?

The Beatles ‘Birthday’. Great song, fits the occasion.

Do you have a favourite record to finish a set with and if so, what is it?

There are a few. My two favourites are Jackson 5's ‘I Am Love’, which starts out as a beatless ballad and then gradually builds into this crazy prog-Disco track. The other one is Asha Puthli's ‘Space Talk’, a really beautiful and languid funky disco tune that is just perfect.

What's the best set you've seen/heard from another DJ this year?

Ray Mang in February – great mixture of old stuff and new, and stuff that hadn't even come out.

Which producers should we be watching out for in 2012 and beyond?

Amirali, Phon.O and Psychemagik.

Obviously. Before shoes were invented by the sounds of it.
