Purple Sneakers DJs
Purple Sneakers works to showcase emerging club music from Australia and around the world and has continued to do so for the last 12 years. Bringing together an enthusiastic team of contributors from across the country, we like to think that Purple Sneakers is the centre of a forward thinking, music loving community.
Purple Sneakers DJs have been central in continuing this ethos, taking it to clubs and festivals all over the world. They’ve played just about every Australian festival there is to play and have participated in campaigns for brands like Nike, Converse, Adidas and many more.
The Purple Sneakers DJs roster over the years has featured the likes of Purple Sneakers’ founder Martin Novosel, Nick Luke (Moonbase), Gabe Gleeson (Indian Summer), Randall Stagg (Fresh Hex) and more. It’s been a massive few years for us here at Purple Sneakers and we’ve thought really hard about how much we’ve changed over the years, not only as a publication, but as a brand too. We’re ready to move forward with the next chapter of Purple Sneakers DJs, and to mark the occasion, we’re dubbing this the Next Generation.
Purple Sneakers DJs: Next Generation celebrates a new generation of creatives who are passionate about what they do and are passionate about imparting the work of tasteful young artists upon dance floors everywhere. The new lineup features FBi Radio/Pretty Broad’s Caitlin Medcalf, Purple Sneakers Subeditor/ex-FBi Radio Dance Class student Holly O’Neill & FBi Radio’s Eddy Diamond.
Purple Sneakers DJs have toured the globe and performed at just about every Australian festival there is to play, as well as participating in brand campaigns for brands like Nike, Converse, Adidas and many more. In 2016, Purple Sneakers celebrated ‘Ten Years of Taste’ with a birthday party as part of Vivid Festival, a national tour and a two stage event at King St Crawl in Newtown, Sydney. In both 2017 and 2018, Purple Sneakers was invited back to be apart of Vivid Sydney again to celebrate their birthday. Purple Sneakers DJs: Next Generation recently performed at this year’s Splendour In The Grass, will be playing at the Sydney leg of Listen Out and just announced a national tour across August and September. They also recently jumped on Triple J to do the Friday Mix, which you can stream below.
Whether they are writing about new music, sharing it over the airwaves, playing it in a DJ set, or giving it a live platform at their parties; the Purple Sneakers team are committed to imparting the work of tasteful, young artists with the world.
