TOTD // 29/09 // DJ Boring

Published: September 29, 2017, words by Oli Katz

Australian born, London-based musician Tristan Hallis sent ripples through the underground house music community with the release of his single ‘Winona‘. A vinyl aficionado and notoriously friendly dude, DJ Boring’s signature stripped-down sound has become somewhat of a blueprint for an emerging sub-genre of house- a raw distorted music that stands as a stark contrast to musical elements of the commercial club scene.

2017, much like our previous guest Adryiano, has been an explosive one for DJ Boring. Kicking it off with a release on Shall Not Fade’s sister label Lost Palms, Hallis released two further EPs on LPH White and E-Beamz, the label that mothered his debut. You can catch him throughout the last quarter of 2017 at a string of DJ performances alongside the likes of Palms Trax, DJ Seinfeld and Julio Bashmore throughout Europe.

He’ll also be playing at The Marble Factory for Shall Not Fade’s In:Motion showcase. Proving why his talent as a DJ is just as great as that of his productions, he’s picked out today’s Tracks Of The Day. Trust me, they are far from boring.

“Still one of my absolute favourites and gets played quite regularly. The use of the stabbing synths and the hi-hats to compliment the heavy drop, somehow manages to shift the general energy of the crowd by injecting them with good vibes.”

“Kink can never do wrong in my eyes, he has continuously amazed me over the years and this track is no different. Between the thumping bass and the way he constructed the build, it is without a doubt a certified club anthem that would get anyone on the dance floor going.”

“This track came out quite a while ago, but I still try to play it as often as I can. It’s fun introducing the crowd to new sounds that aren’t particularly used often, I just love to watch their reaction when the kookaburra and didgeridoo sample ripples through the venue.”

“I just recently picked up this record, to me it brings back nostalgic memories of my hometown. The disco culture is huge back in Melbourne, this is definitely a track that would make everyone groove. I try to incorporate disco into my sets and I am looking forward to playing this one in the near future.”
