BIG BASH

Hav­ing sailed far and wide around the world, Yacht Club DJS Guy Chap­pell and Gaz Har­ri­son are homeward bound for some dates on the Gold Coast with new ma­te­rial sure to de­light their fans

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - LIVE & LOUD -

Af­ter nearly a year of in­ter­na­tional tour­ing, mashup masters Yacht Club DJs are sail­ing to our shores to show­case some new tunes. With a swag of new in­flu­ences and a slightly dif­fer­ent di­rec­tion, Guy Chap­pell and Gaz Har­ri­son agree 2013 was flat out.

“We’ve been on tour pretty much all year, which has been fan­tas­tic,’’ Chap­pell says.

Chap­pell says the Bal­larat­based party duo can’t wait to head up the east coast “and get weird with y’all again”.

“If it feels like we’ve been a lit­tle quiet lately its be­cause we’ve been in the stu­dio writ­ing and mix­ing our first orig­i­nal EP,” he says.

“Its re­lease will co­in­cide with our up­com­ing mix­tape and tour ti­tled Od­dity No. 5.”

Yacht Club DJs did a few shows with Mum­ford and Sons in the UK be­fore join­ing them on their Amer­i­can tour.

Chap­pell says last year’s the hec­tic sched­ule had been good.

“When we first started tour­ing we would get worn out a lot quicker than we do now,” he says.

“We can also af­ford our ho­tels now in­stead of crash­ing on people’s floors.”

Chap­pell says the new ma­te­rial is in­flu­enced by places they have trav­elled to and great shows they’ve seen.

Yacht Club DJs have played on a wealth of dif­fer­ent stages around the world, but Chap­pell says he couldn’t pick be­tween fes­ti­vals or head­line shows.

“It’s amaz­ing to see a big ocean of people at a big show. At smaller shows it’s great to in­ter­act with people,’’ he says.

Yacht Club DJs are joined by The Faders, Tom & Jarry DJs, Adam & Eve, Deuces and Camorra to play Ko­mune Re­sort, Coolan­gatta, on Sun­day.

The duo re­turn to the Gold Coast for a club show at Else­where Bar in Surfers Par­adise on April 11. Yacht Club DJs play Ko­mune Re­sort, Coolan­gatta, on Sun­day.
