Episode 97: Garry Todd Is Proper Badboy

This week’s adventure begins about a year ago when someone handed us a copy of the first 12″ on Illusion Recordings and hidden on the B2 was a surprisingly original 90’s influenced slow house jam by the one and only Garry Todd. Now we get cool tracks from new producers all the time, but this one was vinyl only (young producers take note) and we couldn’t stop playing it, and then there was the kicker, we met Garry in real life… and like his bio says he truly is larger than life! From his massive beard, to his and his girl’s full on tie-dye tracksuits at our last 90’s jam, Garry brings the flavor in just the way we like. Throw in a love for the 90’s and we were sold and asked him to contribute an adventure to the podcast. Garry’s 90’s vibe, positivity and fun shines through in his music and especially in this mix, so clappers it’s time to tune in, turn on and drop out!

Here it is in his own words:

I am currently living in bondi beach syndey, just finished designing my first clothing range with my girlfriend and just about to launch my own record label both under the name Contemporary Scarecrow, the first release will be dropping around may time a month after my second ep on illusion recordings. It’s the middle of summer here in sydney, so I wanted to do a mix to reflect the vibe at the moment, I would not say that this is a club mix, but something to but on after u come home.. It has some of my favourite tunes I love listen to when I am unwinding down the beach or having a bbq, the mix consists of 80’s, soul, italo disco, party edits and some ny garage classics along with some of my own
