Well, without further ado, we can formally announce details for the launch night for our new brand, ‘Attic’ — we will be joined by popular disco house outfit from the Netherlands, Fouk! The event will be taking place at The Civic Underground on Friday, 20 January — kicking off at nine o’clock.
We just say Fouk!
For Daniel Leseman & Junktion (Hans Peeman) — successful producers on their own merits and friends since childhood — a collaboration was inevitable. The success of it of course never is, but their house sound infused with disco and a lot of funk has been proven to be very infectious.
After the infamous Detroit Swindle signed them to their Heist imprint and released the booming ‘Kill Frenzy EP’, their name was established firmly to quickly grow a broader audience, resulting in requests for DJ sets across Europe and the Americas, with personal highlights on Glastonbury, LoveBox and Output New York.
Their first vinyl release as Fouk, on their own created Outplay Records, was met with great enthusiasm; the brilliant reactions to ‘Stuff Your Dad Liked’ and ‘Cat Lady’ propelled Fouk and Outplay firmly into the scene as the “one to watch”. Following swiftly on, they produced a formidable remix for Lay-Far on the Swedish Local Talk Records. Since then they’ve released EPs on Room With A View, The House of Disco and Razor-n-Tape and made a string of strong remixes for the likes of Kraak & Smaak, Groove Armada, Joey Negro’s The Sunburst Band and Mayer Hawthorne.
‘Attic’ is the brainchild of Sydney jocks, Brendan Clay and Andrew Fazzolari; devised as a medium to promote their love for low, slow grooves, thick basslines and loose, swinging drums.
Attic is tailored to those searching for an avenue for deep, soulful, disco-infused and melodically-inclined house music. Fundamentally, its focus is the promotion of quality, hand-picked local talent, foremost; regularly showcasing selectors from around the globe who mirror its style and vision. deep • low-slung • disco
