Restaurant & vinyl bar Rekōdo unveils August music series

Barangaroo House is set to turn up the volume when Rekōdo Restaurant and Vinyl Bar welcomes a new DJ Set Series, taking over the decks every Wednesday throughout August. Some of the best names in the music space including Planet Trip, Elefant Traks, Utopian State, Future Classic and I OH YOU will each have their turn to showcase their vinyl skills.

The Wednesday takeover blends Rekōdo’s offering of Japanese-inspired flavours and cocktails with a killer soundtrack curated by a collective of tastemaker labels that have contributed to shaping Australia’s thriving music landscape.

First up on the decks will be Planet Trip showcasing Mike Who and Caravan on Wednesday, August 2. Elefant Traks will take over Wednesday, August 9, enlisting the beloved Diola, Solo and DGGZ to curate the soundtrack for the evening. Taking the reins on Wednesday, August 16, Utopian State will be bringing Surahn who will be performing live, a first for Rekōdo, performing tracks from his latest EP, Soft Rock Summer followed by Sidwho for a nonstop spinathon. Wednesday, August 23 will see Future Classic unleash its roster of sought-after DJs. Spinning the decks for the final Wednesday night, August 30, will be the iconic vibe controllers, I OH YOU, with Paddy Harrowsmith and Johann Ponniah delivering a plethora of nonstop hits to ensure the series wraps on a high.

Beloved and well-respected label, I OH YOU, have been responsible for the success of a number of iconic Australian acts including DMA’sConfidence Man and Violent Soho. I OH YOU’s Johann Ponniah said:

“I’m really looking forward to playing a few of our favourite records at Rekōdo next month, it’s a bit of a rarity that we get to take stock of our past and relive some good memories and the tunes that have soundtracked them… should be a bit of fun!”

With music and discovery at the heart of Rekōdo’s ethos, August’s takeover will dial up the senses for audiophiles, melophiles, culture seekers and gourmets alike, so why not hit play and secure your booking for a fusion of cultural and sonic experiences!
