S*A*S*H has been the premier weekly Sunday house music event in Sydney for the past eight years. Spanning two of the best venues in Sydney, Greenwood Hotel & Home the Venue, the event has become the pilgrimage site for 1,500 folks every Sunday and over 5,000 on a long weekend. S*A*S*H is set to get Sunday on the boil here on the island of Bali at Vue Beach Club on June 2, 2019.
The Beat spoke to the director and DJ founder of S*A*S*H, Kerry Wallace about the S*A*S*H concept and, in particular, the Bali show.
Our focus is creating a musical bridge between Europe and Australia with strong, contemporary underground house music, with a relaxed Sunday afternoon atmosphere. For the Bali show, we will be shipping in a MASSIVE stack of Funktion-One gear to make sure things sound as crisp as they should.
S*A*S*H is solely focused on the music. Dyed Soundorom, Voightmann, Chris Stussy, Toman, Enzo Siragusa, John Tejada & Traumer are all highlight guests we feel encompass the S*A*S*H soundtrack.
We spent a few days scooting around the island looking at options and once we took in the endless pool overlooking the blue ocean waters, the big bar by the palm trees and the large patio area – we knew this was the spot. Vue Beach Club.
You can expect an afternoon of down tempo Sunday afternoon house grooves distributed by our large Funktion One sound system brought in from a neighbouring island. Expect the perfect sunset view alongside the sinking of cold beer as the venue fills out and the main man Rossko takes the reigns.
We all know how quickly and easy these things escalate and we’re pretty confident the same will happen here.
Rest assured – we’re not leaving you high and dry at the end of the party as we’ll be announcing a secret after-party very soon.
On the decks?
Besides Rossco, from Sydney there will be me, Kerry Wallace, and our two residents GABBY and Jake Hough will be the first of our Australian’s to represent the black and yellow S*A*S*H flag. Each of them excelling in their own sound and nuance, Kerry leans towards the chunky sleazy house sounds while Gabby’s technicality, darker and left field selections moves floors weekly across our events with all things proper classic house and warm notes falling under Jake Hough’s hat.
