Sydney’s Top Indie Scenes

Anyone out there an Indie music fan? Well, Timeout has taken the “time” to explore some of Sydney’s best indie nights and here are there top 5 picks!

  • Mum:

With its variation in local line-ups ranging from electronic, indie, alternative, pop, rock and experimental fare this triple levelled venue has truly made a name for itself as one of the best in Kings Cross.

  • Girls Gone Mild:

Found jamminf away on Thursday’s at GoodGod Front Bar, FBi’s sister duo (Hannah and Eliza Rilley) start there nights on a gold mine of dance floor tracks that vary each week on specialised themes from ” The Warriors” to “Beat Street Bloc Party”. And the best thing about their gig? It’s totally FREE!!

  • Starfuckers:

Raving away from 3am till 6am at Clubb77 the most favoured indie nights at this venue comes in the form of “teen battleground” Starfuckers playing crazy beats courtesy of Mr Disorder, Hookie and Donnie Blood.

  • Hot Damn

Now here’s a location for one messy night as Hot Damn presents to you a mix of indie bands that get the dance floor packing with patrons buying cheap as drinks…a hard find nowadays in Sydney!

  • Slow Blow

Another little indie favourite at GoodGod Small club; this monthly event sees to it that every clubber is walking home with the rising of the sun as Dreamcatcher and Jungle Snake play irresistible beats that keep you wanting more.

Top 10 Sydney’s DJ’s to Watch

levins01

LEVINS

Levins (pictured) is an amazing all-rounder who plays old-skool party favourites, does awesome “photo bombs”, opened the much-loved DIPeatery and has even hosted the main stage at Parklife. We urge you to party with him hip-hop night Halfway Crooks at Phoenix.

SIMON CALDWELL

He’s hardly a newcomer – he’s been spinning vinyl for the last two decades but if you see this Mad Racket founder’s name on a club night flyer, it’s certainly not going to be a dud. He hovers around soulful house and techno, but tarts it up with all manner of unexpected genre kicks.

 

deathstrobe03

ASH & ANDY, DEATH STROBE RECORDS

Andy Webb helps run Picnic, keeps the posts rolling over at awesome music blog Disco Delicious and runs Death Strobe Records with Ash Moses, who also spins under the moniker Tunnel Signs. Catch the boys at their label showcase at the Spice Cellar on Fri Jun 15.

 

HOOPS04

HOOPS

Anna Lunoe, Nina Las Vegas and Bad Ezzy are three babes that like to drop Baltimore club, smooth r’n’b and hip hop with serious swagger. You’ll find them regularly heating up the GoodGod Danceteria.

 

SlowBlow05

SLOW BLOW

Parri and George are the boys behind the always-colourful monthly Slow Blow parties at GoodGod. They also regularly roll their disco and house heavy record bags over to the roving Motorik! parties.

 

Mark06

MARK PRITCHARD

You may know him as Harmonic 313 or one half of Afrika Hitech, he’s put out releases through Warp and Hyperdub, and he’s our pick for left-field hip hop, wonky future beat and interesting dubstep.

 

nic07

NIC SCALI

Scali has been on the scene for a few years now, spinning banging house, techno and minimal sounds at the Spice Cellar, on the Spice Cruises and at Bare Essentials and Seasoned Music’s weird and wonderful parties.

 

softwar08

SOFTWAR

They’ve just released their This Time Around EP through Future Classic and it’s shoulder-shimmy dancefloor disco at its best. We expect them to be on stages and behind decks all over the city soon.

 

yokoo09

YOKOO

Julien Beltzung is one of the city’s best house men and is a key player down at Reckless Republic HQ. Catch him at any time of the night down at Spice.

SHANTAN WANTAN ICHIBAN & MIKE WHO?, STOLEN RECORDS

These lads play really ineteresting jams, like Dancehall, soul, cheesy ’90s r’n’b and the like. They also make sweet mixtapes to post on their Stolen Records blog and host the city’s best hip-hop show on FBi. Catch them at GoodGod or theHollywood Hotel.
