Bag Raiders in the mix
have been wowing international audiences with their energetic live performances over the last 12 months, but Bag Raiders (pictured) – aka duo Chris Stracey and Jack Glass – are taking time out over the Easter long weekend to return to Australia for a bunch of exclusive DJ sets. With their long overdue, debut self-titled album finally complete, the pair return home for its first run of Australian shows this year. Tomorrow, Bag Raiders will celebrate the release of the deluxe reissue of the record, featuring the original favourites and 10 new remixes, ahead of their show in Byron Bay on Monday night. ‘‘Mixes chart our musical tastes as they follow the trends from deep house to trancehall, two-step and beyond,’’ they say. ‘‘Towards the end of the year you might even find some advance tastes and sneak peaks of tracks we’re working on for our second album, due some time shortly after the apocalypse.’’
