Bio

‘Purple Sneakers DJs: Making serious party music since… …kinda just the other day really’ There's a good reason that your girlfriend doesn't look at you in the same way anymore, and its thanks to Purple Sneakers DJs. This inappropriate duo is the union of PhDJ (the one with the hat) and Randall Stagg (the one with the hair). Having started in the now legendary original Purple Sneakers club, Purple Sneakers DJs have been gradually building a reputation as one of Australia's highest profile song-based (indie) DJs. The duo have stepped away from the club over the recent years, headlining capital city shows in their own right. These purveyors of partying have supported the likes of Miike Snow, Sleigh Bells, Bloc Party, Odd Future, The Kills and The Rapture as well as invited to warm up dancefloors at iconic Aussie festivals, Big Day Out, Parklife, Field Day, Splendour In The Grass and Groovin The Moo to name a few. After releasing the popular 'We Mix You Dance' series of compilations as well as preparing re-rubs for acts so varied as French electro belle Yelle, Reptar (USA), White Arrows (USA), Oh Mercy, Jinja Safari and Architecture in Helsinki, Purple Sneakers DJs now turn their attention to original production. In true Purple Sneakers style, collaboration is the key for ‘Last One Standing’. Featuring the compelling vocals of Amy Pes of Sydney indie outfit Tokyo Denmark Sweden ‘Last One Standing’ occupies a space somewhere between the homespun reverb-laden 'indie synth-pop' styling of Grimes, and the blatant all out 'hands in the air' club vibes of DJ/Producers like Gigamesh and Erol Alkan. To celebrate the launch of their bangin‘ new tune, Purple Sneakers DJ’s will be heading to a venue near you soon.

After years of smashing it on the decks it's great to see the PSDJs moving towards making their own tunes, and this is a super solid first offering.

This doesn't fail my expectations (which were admittedly high). The combo of the PSDJs and TDS's Amy is pretty inspired with some pretty precise production with a nicely rounded low-end and a chorus buttery gold.
