Our good friend Maurice Terzini provided us with signature lamb chops, squid and octopus, quinoa salads and vine leaves from his restaurant, Neild Avenue. The wine and margaritas flowed freely. Taste-maker blogger and photographer Yimmy Yayo came, he brought his camera and charted some of the goings on as shown in the above gallery. For more from Yimmy's blog, head here.
Last Friday night we held an intimate family & friends dinner at Modular HQ. Azari & III, The Rapture and Horse Meat Disco were in town so we got our good pal Maurice Terzini from Neild Avenue to sort the food and invited other long-time friends and Modular collaborators Juan MacLean and Hercules & Love Affair, who were on the same tour for Future Music Festival.
Our guests were exemplary, the wine was abundant, and the menu displayed some of the best of Sydney cuisine. Modular's head honcho Stephen 'Pav' Pavlovic might've even rewarded late-stayers with a snippet of as-yet-largely-unheard-but-highly-anticipated-releases. We can't confirm or deny, but we can share these photos, taken by Kasia Werstak.
Two big shows are going down this week in Melbourne and Sydney. The Rapture and Azari & III are teaming up and we have some double passes to win over on our Facebook page here for each show.
If you need convincing, peep the Softwar remix of 'Into the Night' here, The Rapture's video for 'In the Grace of Your Love' and some killer Azari & III remixes of a couple of their best and brightest label-mates here.
We've got double passes to give away over here.
To double the sweetness - if you're a fan of Azari & III download the Aston Shuffle remix of 'Reckless With Your Love' for free just there to your right.
Australian fans in Melbourne and Sydney will be lucky enough to see both, together at their combined side-shows. Both groups are renowned for their upbeat and fevered frenzy-inducing qualities - expect a lot from this show, it's bound to be snappy.
If you're a fan of The Rapture, make sure you have a listen to the latest remixes of Sail Away by Cut Copy, Aeroplane and Cosmic Kids.
While fans of Azari & III should keep their eyes peeled for some new remixes of Reckless. Friend us here for updates as they come to hand!
