Future Classic will take over Rekōdo tonight as part of their new DJ Set Series!
As Rekōdo restaurant and vinyl bar continues to sizzle up our winter with their new DJ Set Series at Barangaroo House, Future Classic's Andy Garvey has curated a playlist full of bangers exclusively for MILKY!
Curated by some of the best names in the music space, Planet Trip, Elefant Traks, Utopian State, Future Classic and I OH YOU will all get the chance to take over Rekōdo throughout August and offer a platform to some of the best homegrown (vinyl) DJs out there. Tonight, Future Classic have put together an epic evening to get you through the mid-week slump full of its roster of sought-after DJs. Future Classic is known for empowering their artists to build their art that is creatively uncompromising. They boast a glistening catalogue of heavyweights from Flume to Flight Facilities to emerging talents such as Willo.
To complement Rekōdo’s Japanese-inspired food and drink, there will also be a limited-edition DJ Sets Series menu influenced by the esteemed record labels and with a flair of hip-hop peppered throughout. Available on Wednesday nights during August, Head Chef Tara Chua’s menu will include fried cheese sandos, wagyu hotdog buns, and togarashi popcorn.
Creative Bar Manager, Jai Lyons, in collaboration with Connor O’Brien from small bar Otis in Leichhardt, will also curate a series of music icon-inspired, minimal-waste cocktails made using leftover kitchen produce and syrups, vinegar, purees, infused spirits and wines all made in-house using techniques like sous-vide, force carbonation, and cold infusion. Must-tries include the delicious nod to Kendrick Lamar, ‘King Kunta’ (cacao-washed pisco, yellow Chartreuse, kumquat whey, roasted pineapple syrup, coconut cream and lime); a DJ Khaled-inspired ‘Another One’ (Tenjaku whisky, mezcal, blood orange syrup, Japanese-inspired Mexican mole, egg foam, lemon); and a 2-Pac classic ‘All Eyez on Me’ (Patron tequila, yuzushu, pepper and dashi cordial, tamarind and lime yuzu blend). Eminem and Naughty by Nature also feature in the line-up.
