Ollie Wilkes B2B Clare Blake | The Mr. & Mrs. Series Part 2 on Premium Tuna

Last week we were joined by Michaelis & Lewinksy for the first part of our Mr. & Mrs. Series which resulted in some serious laughs and a great musical treat sesh. They set the bar at a suitably high level (you can listen to the recording on our show page) so thankfully the DJ power couple we have lined up for this week can also hold their own. It is our huge pleasure to announce that our next episode in this Mr. & Mrs. Series is none other than Doesn’t Matter residents Ollie Wilkes & Clare Blake. Both known to be lovers of driving techno, their b2b sets have been likened to the battle scene in Bravehart! All we can really say however is you sure are in for an energetic start to the long weekend.

 

A little bit about Clare:
Local DJ and Doesn’t Matter resident, Clare Blake, is right at home at festivals and clubs alike. She played the Sunset Stage at Rainbow Serpent in 2015 and 2016 and also The Town Festival in 2016. Clare brings her unique blend of lush deep house melodies and crisp, stripped-back techno to Melbourne dance floors on a regular basis. She places an emphasis on driving basslines to create a pumping atmosphere and is equally at home playing sunny day-parties and dark club sets. Check her out on SoundCloud and find true enlightenment.

A little bit about Ollie:
Melbourne DJ Ollie Wilkes is a self-confessed techno-nut. Starting out over four years ago, Ollie began playing clubs and outdoor parties in and around Melbourne. In 2015, he travelled to Germany playing gigs in Hamburg and Leipzig where he began to develop his own distinctive style based on Germany’s thriving techno scene. Back in Melbourne, Ollie put his overseas experience to work supporting German techno-heavyweights such as Thomas Schumacher and Monkey Safari. Ollie Wilkes was a monthly resident for Doesn’t Matter™ in 2016, playing a mixture of dark-driving techno and melodic deep-house to dancefloors all over Melbourne

Liam Kendall

For much of time his blood has beat with the rhythm and sweat of minority subgenres and alternative subcultures. His ears were never quite satisfied with the status quo and his mind was always searching the fringe for further audio fulfilment. He was a collector of melodies, a hunter of bass lines, and a gatherer of many tempos. Respected amongst his peers as a music purest, the next logical progression in Liam Kendall’s journey was obviously to step behind the decks and put those records to good use. With an ideology still firmly rooted in the hardcore punk of his teen years, and a matched enthusiasm for dance-floor funk groovers and couch-techno deep brooders, he was well positioned to take on the diverse Melbourne underground circuit.

Now several years on, he has honed his focus, and while still respecting the game, has garnered his own respect around the village for his eclectic sets. A close friend of the Boogie Beats Collective, and a regular face at techno houses such Killing Time, Pawn & Co, and Circus Bar & Nightclub, Liam has established himself as a tune selector worthy of listening to. While he maintains a quiet and humble demeanour, his achievements in the scene have been no small feat, supporting quality local and international acts from Luke Vechio to Super Flu, to co-hosting his own weekly radio show on Kiss FM, that focuses on showcasing local talent. Liam is a genuine player, a country boy-turned dive-bar-tune-lurker, he sustains a vested interest in supporting the scene and in playing quality house and techno music
