DJ Central is globetrotting and sprouting up offices left and right!

DJ Central continues to snowball into a big comeback by establishing new offices worldwide. We’ve come a long way since our days in the Sydney office. Now we’ve got a thriving office right in the heart of Australia’s Southern Highlands, in an idyllic town known as Moss Vale. Surrounded by trees and quiet suburbs, Moss Vale and the surrounding areas are historic and quiet, the perfect setting to help us chill out from the fast-paced work that we do. Check out the vintage clock near the center of the town in the picture above, right next to the serene Leighton Gardens.

 

But that’s not all. We also have offices in Vancouver, Canada, LA, USA, and Lagos, Nigeria! With the assistance of tenacious individuals such as Nedjon, our influence is notably growing and we’re getting a foothold in all sorts of locations. After all, the best part of music is the way it varies from place to place. The indigenous spices of a given culture can greatly influence the musical quality of a piece, and we here at DJ Central and Blue Pie Records recognise this!

 

But are we stopping there? Not on your life. Next stop, VEGAS! The land of casinos and big irons is our goal for 2019! We’re doing our utmost to establish a base there, and from then on we have the bright lights, city lights, paired with the tranquil, quiet areas of the world. That contrast will let us cover every single base and get our musical energy going, ready to chill out or dance the night away, like with hits such as Raz B’s catalogue!

With newsletters coming back into circulation, and news and social media experiencing a new breath of life, as well as DJC season 6 in production and our agreements with Amazon Prime and VIMEO on demand, DJ Central is showing no signs whatsoever of slowing down!

The 5 clubs that party beyond the Sydney lockouts!

Although many clubs, pubs and party animals are disappointed with the nightlife lockout and drink legislations which kicked in a few weeks ago, there are still a handful of clubs who won’ take no for an answer and will feed your party cravings and play the music till dawn. We’ve even done the research for you! All you have to do is find the place and enjoy yourselves! Without further adieu, here are the five clubs as listed via inthemix.com.au.

1) SPICE CELLAR

This little gem hidden on Elizabeth St has been a crowdpleaser for a while, especially because the venue doesnt close till 10am on the following morning. Although you still have to rock up before 1:30 for entry, don’t fret! If you miss the lockout time because of your drunken haze, you’ll be able to get back in at 5am…and you’ll be sober by then too! Service of alcohol will cease at 3am, but the bar has created a compromise of delicious mocktails and juices and refreshing ‘Spice Blocks’ (basically ice blocks) too keep you refreshed until 5am. Website

2) MARQUEE

Luckily for the Marquee, the Star just hits the outskirt of the CBD lockout zone, which means the Marquee is excluded from the lockout legislations. This is good news for you all party animals as you can get entry and an alcoholic drink at any time, that is, if you can manage to get in considering the big DJ’s that will be headlining for the next few weekends, so get in early (or purchase pre-paid tickets) before it reaches full capacity! Website

3) ARQ

If you’re free on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday night, then the ARQ is the place to be! If you manage to get through the 1:30am lockouts, then you’re free to party your ass off until 6am when the venue shuts…plus you can sneak in some ‘earlybird’ drinks when the bar re-opens at 5am. Website

4) WORLD BAR

Or if Oxford st isn’t your scene (or if you prefer to unleash your inner hipster) then the World Bar near the hub of Kings Cross would be your party destination! Like the ARQ, the World Bar is also licensed till 6am between Friday to Sunday. Not to mention the infamous cocktail teapots…or mocktail teapots between 3am-5am, either way the teapots are nifty addition! Website

5) DAYDREAMS DAYCLUB

Just like the name implies, Daydreams will kick on every Sunday morning, so for you party-loving nocturnals, this club will be your new oasis. Not to mention you have two floors to choose from for your next party adventure! Daydreams will replace Phoenix downstairs after 5am while Dayclub will take over the Q-Bar on the top floor.

Taylor Swift sparkles in Sydney

The 23 year old American country artist turned princess pop star kicked off her opening Australian THE RED TOUR at Allianz Stadium in Sydney on Wednesday 4 December. Taylor Swift’s musicality is undeniable as she lived up to the live vocals and entertained the 40,000 fans in attendance with a musical-like act rather than a conventional concert. Taylor was happy to sing and dance as well as talk about love, heartbreak, emotions and mean people. Although her dancing may not be the greatest, her talent and confidence dominated the stage.

Taylor also injected some local spontaneity with an ‘Aussie Aussie Aussie’ chant.
