Robbie Lowe - How Lowe Can You Go-
Wednesday, 30 January 2008
So, have you done much surfing in this last summer-
Yeah definitely. You may have seen the recent news stories about the east coast of Australia being bashed by a stationary low-pressure system. The swell has been consistent with some pretty sizeable days in Sydney the last month.
You write a lot about other artists and other music for us, so tell us how you would describe Robbie Lowe…if you weren't him.
I think I would say something along the lines of 'Robbie knows his tunes and plays a half decent set from time to time…' I would have to also mention that he is a legend and a fucking good bloke!
If you're not writing about music, you're playing it - have you always been something of a musical evangelist-
Haha, that's one way to describe myself! I do have a tendency to carry on about the music I love at times, hoping it rubs off onto people.
Objectively again, what do you think about your partner in crime, Tim Culbert, and how's it been working with him-
Tim's a good friend and talented DJ. He has a good ear for music and is rapidly establishing himself in Sydney. Musically we click really well and recently launched a mix series called Colour. It features four-discs focusing on deep house, tech and techno.
Just checked out the first part of your itinerary this year - it looks packed. What's in store for you, and for us from you, in 2008-
Yes, the year is off to a good start! As well as playing and possible travel, 2008 will be a big year in the studio for me. Hopefully you should see some more Robbie Lowe releases, a string of Colour events following the mix series and more Lowerider columns!
Would you like to head over to NYC again- Is that on the cards-
I would love to. I usually head over around August for a few weeks. I've established some good contacts in NY, and I have a close friend living in Brooklyn Heights. I love NY; it's always a great buzz.
Finally, do you have anything special on store for your support slot with JZ-
Yeah for sure! I have heaps of respect for JZ - he is an amazing DJ/artist. Also I love playing at Sounds events, they're always top notch. My focus will be to set the groove and create a nice platform for James to start. Expect to hear some deep and grooving tech house with a few of my own productions thrown in.
