EXTRA DIRTY NEWS

The Highs and the lows
Parisian DJ High Low has recently become a Sydney-sider and the latest addition to our DJ roster. I had a chat with her to find out, among other things, why the big move.
 
Tell us a little about yourself.
 
I'm from Toulouse in the south of France and I moved to Paris to play with and for my bro and mentor Ben Manson. The first thing that made me want to become a DJ is Paul Kalkbrener that I had seen in concert for "Berlin Calling". The power he held in his hands to take the crowd along

Baby Bear, Big Sound
David Whittaker, aka Baby Bear, has been part of the Extra Dirty story since ED was just a little fella. He's a good mate of mine, a deadset lovely man and a DJ who never fails to get the dance floor moving. We had a little chat about the journey from then to now, and along the way, I found out some new things about an old mate. 
 
How'd you get into DJing and where did 'Baby Bear' come from?

A mate of mine had a Denon CD mixer and an impressive music library in the mid 90s. He

Tell us about Guy Grey?
 
Well I’m from the bush in southeast Queensland. Realising I didn’t quite fit in with my surroundings I had few years stint in Europe and then settled in Gadigal Sydney, where I first connected with the queer community.

Extra Dirty 101

I’m usually a forward-looking person but lately I’ve been feeling quite nostalgic. Maybe it's because Extra Dirty has 14 years worth of skin in the game. Whatever the reason, I'm very grateful to have you in my life.

This is the story of us. 

It’s Saturday night in 2002. We’re at Phoenix, that intimate little club - a dark and seductive sweatbox in the basement of the old Exchange Hotel on Oxford St Darlinghurst.

The night is called Crash, because my DJ buddy and bestie Mandy Rollins and I have been called into a meeting by management and asked what

Fun Facts and Curly Questions - Bel West
I've known Bel West (she/her) for decades. In fact we first met when she was too young to be in a club and 'proof of age' cards didn't exist. She's one of my best mates and, I'm happy to say, the most recent addition to the Extra Dirty DJ roster. 
 
I talked to Bel West about beats, bresaola and being called 'cock'!
 
Tell us where you're from and what you were like as a 'youngen'.
 
I’m originally from Coogee, but my parents moved to the Central Coast (north of Sydney) when I was young. It was beautiful

Space Nightclub - a big move!
It all begins with desire.
 
Back in 2008, ED co-founder Mandy Rollins and I had the desire to take our little party DIRTY (held at Sydney's iconic underground venue Phoenix) and make it bigger. Bigger sound... bigger lighting... and more room.
 
Eleven years down the track and ED has the chance to grow again. We took a chance then, and we’re taking a chance now. What’s life without risks right?
 
Never before have we had the opportunity to go into such a big space. SPACE nightclub on Liverpool St holds over 1000 so that's more room for
