To kick things off Future Classic have been running their Sunday Afternoon sessions, Apres, here in Sydney for close to 3 years often with internationals guests, and often completely unannounced.
Will Saul is one such example who recently toured Aus launching his latest Balance 15 Compilation. After playing in the Cave at Chinese Laundry the night before Will popped in to play an encore set of chilled deep house, deep-disco and Balearic sounds. A great accompaniment to the Sydney Summer and a set I thought in need of spreading!
Will Saul live at Apres, Tilbury Hotel Sydney
Every week for close to 3 years Future Classic has been hosting a laidback Sunday afternoon event at the Tilbury Hotel in Woolloomooloo, Sydney.
