Phil K, Alex Wolfenden, Murat Kilic, MITCH CROSHER
SPICE will start 5AM every dang Sunday at the legendary HOME Terrace from Sunday the 24th of January.
With stunning views over the water and a PROPER & SERIOUS club system that most of you probably remember from days gone by . . .
SPICE resident MURAT KILIC will host the event with a minimum 3 HOUR SET every week to help make your Sunday mornings as fun as can possibly be!!!! Alongside Murat you will find the creme of local and international DJ talent on the decks playing a fine selection of House, Techno, Disco and every genre loosely connected.
Some of the regular DJs on rotation include Robbie Lowe, Claire Morgan, Aram Chapers, Mitch Crosher, Schwa, Telefunken, Matt Weir, Mattt & Tomass, Ant J Steep, Luke McD to name but a few......we also have been known to have the odd SUPERSTAR international DJ as well just rock up and play for 6 hours like Adam Beyer or even 3 hours like Stephan Bodzin, Tiefschwarz or in some cases 20 minutes like Ewan Pearson just coz he ran out of steam at 11am haha it ALL got a bit too much!!!! But that's what SPICE is all about aint it.....stretchin those limits and putting an extra performance of grandeur to bring in your Sunday with good honest dancing and sweet sweet music ........ ahhhhhhhhh
Our move away from King's Cross marks what we think will be a great leap forward for SPICE. A chance for all you SPICE-loving folks who are not so fond of the Cross to come and listen to some decent music when ur feelin like a little boogie.
AND we have got some seriously hard hitting acts coming up for you over the next month including :
BYE BYE KING'S CROSS HELLO DARLO ! ! ! !
PHIL K (Global Underground - MELB)
"In today's age of electronic music, the rise to stardom is often as fast as the fall into obscurity. Solidarity is hard to come by, but Melbourne native Phil K has proven that when it comes to DJing, experience, vision, and just plain persistence pay off. His twenty plus years as a world class DJ have won him one of the largest cult followings in the EDM community. Phil has been labeled as one of, if not the most technically-skilled DJs in the world. With a fan base ranging from peers like Sasha, Seaman, Meat Katie and James Zabiela, touting Phil as his "favorite DJ", to clubbers from Sri Lanka to Seattle, it’s hard to argue; Phil K has truly left his mark.
Phil K developed his trade from meager beginnings, purchasing his first turntable in 1984 after saving enough cash from work at a fast food chain. After years sharpening his mixing abilities and spinning at any party or event that would have him, he progressed to playing out at the biggest clubs and hottest parties in Melbourne, including the famous "Sunny." He continued on to the hottest clubs in Australia and was crowned with the coveted Australian Dance Music Awards "Best DJ," "Best Radio Show," and "Lifetime Achievement" awards. Described on the decks as a "mind blowing machine" by UK's Meat Katie, Phil's tenacious mixing abilities, track selection, and cutting-edge style became crystal clear to the international scene. He soon found himself supporting various acts from Kraftwerk to Sasha and devastating crowds at festivals such as Glastonbury, Sonar, and Big Day Out and countless international clubs such as Fabric, Zouk, and Ministry of Sound.
Phil's DJ mix cds have left listeners begging for more. With 7 under his belt, including Therapy Sessions with Dave Seaman and a Y4K release, fans are always in anticipation of his latest compilation. One of Phil's most notable mix achievements was Balance 004, which was voted by DJMag as one of the top ten cds of 2002, thus skyrocketing the series into the international dance scene as one of the most respected DJ series in the world.
As if Phil's tenacious spinning wasn't enough, his productions have also enveloped DJs and fans across the globe. His early achievements were collaborations with fellow Aussies Andy Page and Ivan Gough, developing one of the the first definitive breakbeat anthems "Lydian and the Dinosaur" in the late 90's. Other projects include work with Atlanta phenom producer Habersham, such as 2005 single "Cloudbrake." Phil's largest bought of production has been been with Australian production powerhouse Luke Chable. Together, known as Lostep, Phil and Luke have ravaged the dance scene with various hits including "Burma," "The Roots," and their recent Global Underground artist album titled "Because We Can."
Another angle of annihilation in Phil's arsenal is his visual expertise as a DVJ. Phil has a strong relationship with Pioneer as a sponsored representative for the past 7 years developing products, modifying equipment, and playing with the toys that mere mortals get their hands on 6 months to a year later. This position was not achieved by megastardom, but by shocking Pioneer engineers through his ability to abuse their equipment and do things beyond what they were designed to do. Many features currently available on a wide array of Pioneer Pro DJ equipment is the fruit of this relationship.
Phil's abilities to mix videos and sound into experience has branded him as one of the best DVJ's in the world. His skill is best described by Joyce Shintani from Massachusetts Institute of Technology after she witnessed Phil's DVJ performance at the 2005 Sonar Music Festival..."Pulsing with an urban energy recalling Jean-Michel Basquiat, Phil K mirrors glimpses of a fragmented society and submits them to the organizing principles of music. His way of making art in the club context is a contribution to the best of what electronica offers today..." (MIT Computer Music Journal, December 2005).
Despite all the aforementioned success, Phil K remains humble, regarding himself as a quiet achiever, an artist with the goal of keeping electronica evocative. As technology continues to advance exponentially, Phil will be there to command its obedience. Fans, DJs, and critics alike can rest assure that with Phil K, the best is yet to come. "
ALEX WOLFENDEN (20:20, UK)
Upon returning to the UK after an amazing summer in Ibiza - his fourth consecutive season, you’d think Alex Wolfenden would be ready to take a break. Not so for this talented DJ and Producer, who is becoming even more highly sought after around the globe. Continuing his long-standing residency at Liverpool’s Circus alongside head honcho Yousef, Alex is also gearing up for a hectic fifth annual tour of Australia. South America is next on the list followed by a string of dates across the USA , to coincide with the Miami Music Conference.
2009 in Ibiza was a highly successful year for Alex, holding down two of the most revered residencies on the globe with We Love… Sundays at Space and the famous Café Mambo. Add to this his own weekly Cafe Mambo Show on Galaxy Radio, with over three million listeners and you’ve got one very busy DJ/Producer.
Throughout the summer, Alex shared the booth with Cassius, Tiefschwarz, Greg Wilson and Ben Watt at Space to name a few and at Café Mambo, Kenny Dope, Basement Jaxx and Faithless played by his side.
Alex – who began DJing as a teenager at legendary Liverpool club Cream, building up an impressive music collection whilst managing the ever-popular Playmusic record shop in Leeds - cites his influences as Laurent Garnier, Luciano and DJ Sneak. Production-wise Ricardo Villalobos and Prince is an inspiration. Rather than get lost in certain styles and genres of music, Alex moves freely across all spectrums, focusing on the vibe of the crowd and the space he is playing. From an emotional, musically versatile sunset mix, merging classical, chillout and deep house as mid-afternoon turns to sunset and into night.. or a seamless stream of twisted 80s, future disco and electronic groove in a club, his musical range is varied to say the least.
With a string of productions to his name already, Alex – has worked with Nic Fanciulli, MYNC Project, Yousef and has also remixed international artists such as Fat Boy Slim. Watch out for Alex’s forthcoming release on 2020 vision under the alias of Acid Mondays.
Musically, Alex says he finished the summer in a great place, ready to move onto the next challenge – or as he uniquely puts it, ”I’ve got a really nice taste in my ears at the moment. I woke up the other day and my ears had written me a thank you note for looking after them this summer and I was very pleased.” And you can’t get much more Wolfenden than that…

MITCH CROSHER (Top Notch, SYDNEY)
In the relatively short time of three years that he has been spinning decks, Mitch has established himself as one of the brightest young talents to emerge from the dj scene.
Mitch first made his debut onto the scene at a number of infamous kick on parties which then lead him being booked at such club nights as Sunday school, the [box] and more recently at higher profile nights such as "the likes of you" at the civic hotel, SPICE and BUNKER after hours.
Mitch's style ranges from the European side of tech house, house, deep house and anything in between with a lot of groove to get the dance floor heaving. Mitch's tastes in music come from artists such as Luciano, Johnny D, Jimpster, Nic Fanciulli, Oxia, Lemos and Noir.
With an underlying love for music which can be seen through his enthusiastic sets Mitch can always be trusted to get the party started.
