For the last year and a half Future Classic has been hosting a laidback Sunday afternoon event at the Tilbury. A BBQ, friendly bar staff and turntables on the balcony in the sunshine have set the scene for these under-the-radar sessions that give our local and international guests (often performing under alias) the chance to play more diverse sets than they would in the club. “With a little more time to chill and converse than is usually the case in a busy nightclub the idea was hatched to create a series of Aprés 12-inch releases with contributions from our local and international guests” says Future Classic’s Nathan McLay, who is also resident DJ at the weekly event. “Having played host to artists such as Brennan Green, Joakim, Mock & Toof, Lovefingers, Aeroplane, Canyons, Jamie Lloyd and Padded Cell to name a few the sound of this series presented itself naturally.” The first installment comes from a duo that has been causing a stir on the Sydney disco circuit of late. Brendan ‘Long John Saliva’ King and Colin ‘DJ Silvio’ Prout of Paradise Lost fame collaborate as the Loin Brothers. Their tongue-in-cheek debut Heavy Helmet is a slice of car chase disco glory with fluid funk and epic power-chord guitars. On the flip London’s Mock & Toof (DFA/Tiny Sticks) add their playful flavour which has worked its magic at the Tilbury on more than a few occasions of late. Being both a music and design team, artwork has always been an integral part of all Future Classic projects, Aprés being no exception. To complement the series Future Classic commissioned original works by visual artist Gemma Smith, whose geometric abstraction sits perfectly with the cosmic sounds of the records. Gemma has exhibited in curated and solo exhibitions in Australia and overseas. She is currently in Primavera at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney as well as Contemporary Australia: Optimism, at the Gallery of Modern Art, Queensland Art Gallery, in Brisbane.
