FBi Click Programs Celebrate the Station’s First Birthday

fbi click

Crazy P, Odesza, The 2 BearsPorsches, Sammy Bananas, Nadastrom, Hoodboi, Promnite, Treasure Fingers… These are just a handful of names we’ve humbly invited into the abode that is our weekly radio show; made possible thanks to FBI CLICK.

The little sister to Sydney community radio station, FBi 94.5FM, FBi Click embraces talent changing the game in electronic, dance, r’n’b and hip hop music; 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!

An extremely unique entity, the heart of Click is nourished by a small community of dancefloor enthusiasts, donating their time in order to capture and broadcast those artists thinking outside of the box. In fact, some of the FBi Click presenters practice what they preach through their very own composition!

A community we’re so very grateful to be involved with, we’re extremely proud to be helping FBi Click blow out the candle of their first birthday cake at Goodgod this weekend. Before we get there, we caught up with a bunch of our fellow FBi Click comrades to toast this very special occasion!

MOTORIK
w/ Pat, Andrew, Vivi and Francis every Friday @ 4-6pm

Describe your FBi Click show in three words: Fun with techno. Always. That’s been our mantra from the start of MTK, from the warehouse to the airwaves. You can probably expect a lot of stupid waffling from us, too, and occasionally some swearing (sorry guys).
What to expect from your FBi Click First Birthday DJ set: Fun with techno. MTK XTC NRG. Stuff like that. The Motorik Vibe Council is some totally everchanging beast – at various times featuring members of CSMNT61, Dreems, Infusion, The Lost Valentinos and, um, me (Vivi). So it’s not some banging techno oddity – it’s fun synthy 4/4 beats.

We love labels like Comeme, Aus, Turbo, Bromance, Zone, Kompakt and Boys Noize, plus local legends like Sweat It Out and Untzzz 12 Inches, so you can probably expect some of the above to be played. Plus lots of unreleased new stuff from our forthcoming MTK 12” releases by Mike Callander, The Finger Prince and Phil Smart x Francis Xavier. #straya
Most memorable FBi Click moment: We actually record our show in the depths of the Motorik Studio in Woolloomooloo, amongst a room loaded full of synths and on the same mics they used to track “Crave You” by Flight Facilities. That’s why we always sound so luscious on air, right? If you listen carefully, you can actually hear Jensen Interceptor (in the room next door) tuning his kick drum sounds ad nauseum, or Gus Da Hoodrat in the background complaining about who stole his snacks (me).

Everyone else does their shows at FBi studios, but we need to be difficult, don’t we? Plus, it’s funny watching the ever growing backlog of emails from Sandro (FBi Click’s long suffering station manager) wondering, “where the fuck this week’s show is and can we please upload it already?”.
Artist/s to check out: I think I covered this already – but good vibes coming from Sei A/Escape (who played our party with Pelvis recently, legend), Daze from Ballarat and massive love to our homies Tear Council (Matt and Mikey from Van She/Touch Sensitive et al) for making some killer synthy pop. You can always rely on Multi Culti to deliver the vibes – the Dreems debut album is huge in an slo-funk way. You may also want to escape the obsession with the future and relive how amazing The Bumblebeez are.

PICNIC
w/ Kali and Andy every Saturday @ 10am-12pm

Describe your FBi Click show in three words: A good listen.
What to expect from your FBi Click First Birthday DJ set: A fun dance.

Artist/s to check out: Oh god, hmmmm… One of my fave new artists is Palms Trax.

SPIN THE BOTTLE
w/ Johnny and Andy every Friday @ 6-8pm
