If you’ve ever been to a disco party around Adelaide and seen a lunatic with big pink hair flailing around like her life depended on it, well, that’s me. For those who don’t know me, dancing to fabulous funky beats is my favourite thing in the entire world, so I’ve been absolutely thrilled by Adelaide’s steadily growing underground dance scene. There’s nothing that makes me feel like I’m flying higher than letting loose to the soulful grooves and old-school beats at popular monthly disco party DISCO Is Not A Dirty Word and recent popups Disco Paradiso and Electric Avenue. Now, the funky folks responsible for these events have formed a new party collective that aims to provide an Adelaide home for the best local and international acts in soulful underground dance music, and I’m excited as hell. Introducing, Endless Grooves.
Endless Grooves launches on Sunday June 10 at Sugar Nightclub. If you love getting sweaty and fabulous on the dance floor even half as much as I do, you will not want to miss this. The programming promises to make you get down and groove to a mix of disco, house, funk, soul, boogie, hip-hop, dub, and reggae.
Beats will be delivered by international DJ Frank Booker (NZ) and Melbourne superstar DJ JNETT . Frank Booker has garnered a worldwide reputation for incredible edits that focus on keeping the dancefloor pumping all night long. His collection spans classic disco and 80s boogie to the most cutting-edge house. VICE has described him as ‘totally dope’ with ‘more than enough psychedelic funk to get your afro kinky’. DJ JNETT has been a mainstay of the Melbourne music industry since the early 90s, with an extensive collection and turntable technique that seamlessly unites deep house, techno, funk, soul, disco, dub, reggae and hip hop, so there’s sure to be a groove for everyone no matter your usual jam.
The evening will be supported by local favourites Fantastic Black Plastic and Akeem, the first of whom is known around the Adelaide dance scene for their spectacular all-vinyl disco nights.
Prepare your bodies and your souls for killer funky basslines, driving beats, smooth jazzy licks and fabulous disco flourishes. Expect to see some keen dancers throwing it down; I can promise you won’t be able to resist joining in. Sounds like a damn good time to me.
