We got the chance to speak to Super Disco Club, here’s what they had to say.
Who were your musical influences growing up?
“There were so many, including Boney M, Donna Summer and the Jackson 5. Both our parents had great vinyl collections that influenced us a lot”.
How has the past been for you in Australia?
“It was tough last year when covid hit, as it was with many other countries. Melbourne did quite a few very strict lockdowns, which was hard, but now Australia is one of the few countries in the world to be pretty-well COVID free. And even better here now in Melbourne where Cassie & I are based, all clubs are open and super packed! I DJ at venues with crowds of 1500+ patrons every week, going crazy, so life is really great here now”.
What’s the best gig you’ve ever played?
“I’d have to say the Leeds Love Parade, I was booked to do two side floats, which were trucks that went around the outside of 300,000 people”.
Can you describe your music in 3 words?
“Disco, synthesizers, dance”
If Super Disco Club could collaborate with any other artist – who would that be?
“Armand Van Helden”
What artists inspire your music?
“A whole bunch of 70s & 80s disco artists, it’s more about songs, as opposed to artists. We love hooky melodic melodies in italo house, to catchy vocal hooks in a lot of the disco and pop hits of the 70s & 80s”.
If you had to be remembered for one thing apart from your music what would you want it to be?
“Still connected to music, but I think I’d like to be known as the guy that helped so many new artists to the scene (via Vicious Recordings as family of Labels). For those who may not know my background, there have been many over the last 25+ years, including AVICII’s first 8 releases, Dirty South’s first 8 releases, Madison Avenue, Peking Duk, The Potbelleez, Rogue Traders, Cabin Crew, and a whole bunch more”.
Vicious Recordings has a great track record of spotting upcoming artists – is there anyone you’re excited about at the moment?
“That’s great for you to say, John Course (one of the co-owners of Vicious) is after many many years of hiatus finally making some great funky & disco house tracks. And of course I have to mention Sgt Slick he’s coming up with some super strong dance releases”.
