If like me, you came through the birth of dance music in Australia, you would have no doubt come across one of the originators on the local scene, DJ Angus or in his hip hop guise, DJ Bribe. Though no longer with us, he lives on in the memory of friends and many us that enjoyed tearing up a dance floor to one of his sets. Helping to keep that memory alive and inform the uninitiated, Simon of Walshey Films and Jessica Middleton have set about creating a documentary of his time behind the one’s and two’s.
Where do we come in? Well back when partying far out weighed photoing and photos had plenty of “artistic” motion blur and out of focus blur to match the debauchery of the nights, I was fortunate enough to not only attend but also snap a few shots of the man doing what he did best at his final two gigs during the revered Candy Flip nights. These photos will be one of many additions in helping to narrate the life and times of Angus and one we are very honored to be part of.
Want to be part of it too? Glad you asked, if you’ve got skills or bills to contribute then head to the fundraiser page or contact Simon directly. They’re after any contribution big or small, you can hold off on the extra pint the next time you’re out or wait another week before throwing your money at a PS4 Every little bit will help.
Check out the little promo video with a few words from the director and curator himself – Simon Walshe.
Is almost upon us!
Its funny how things work out. Originally we had planned on a LA > Japan > NZ trip this year. Mainly to cover ground we missed at each destination on previous trips, but throw out an unbelievable price for a round the world fare and it was hard to say no. Not only are flights to Japan and New Zealand almost always on sale, the recent string of disasters really made travelling to those destinations a little unnerving. In saying that, no doubt in the next 12-18months both countries will be back on their feet and enticing travellers over with ridiculously cheap fares. I know I’ll be eagerly refreshing my inbox in anticipation!
What are we up to instead? LA is still on the list, with a drive up through Bakersfield (whats up Korn!), Fresno, Yosemite National Park then on to San Francisco. From there we fly to Ol’ Blighty, London, where they’re having a heat wave of low 20C temps! Rail to Paris, then over the big continent to Beijing to see that 7 Wonders of the world of theirs. If you caught our last adventure you know there will be plenty of stops for sneakers and toys, the usual open mouthed tourist gazings and of course plenty of photos. On top of that, now that I’m sporting the Nikon P7000 there’ll also be some fun footage. Bonus!
Back to housekeeping, needless to say, we will not be available for shoots in this time, but still feel free to contact us for dates from mid June onwards. We will have a netbook handy but response and updates may be delayed.
So who wants us to bring them something back? Ha! Psych! We’re gonna need all the space we can get!
Till then, Au Revoir, Zaijain and all that jazz (:
