DJ mix: Will Saul/Close
Aus Music mastermind Will Saul goes deep with his Close persona.
Mon Jul 15 2013
Close is on his way to NYC to play at SRB Brooklyn on Friday, July 19, at a party tossed by the Fixed and Verboten gangs. And just who is this Close fellow, you ask? Why, it’s none other than Will Saul, the talented electronic-house DJ-producer who runs Simple Records and Aus Music. His new persona sees the talented artist working in deep, intimate and slightly subdued mode, a bit more laid-back than some of his previous efforts but brimming with grace a beauty; a new album, Getting Closer (featuring appearances from Scuba, Fink, Appleblim and Tanner Ross) has just come out on the !K7 label. In the run-up to the gig, TONY was lucky enough to get it hands on a Close mix, and you should take the time to check it out, as it’s s a gorgeous mix of tunes. Extra props for the inclusion of Aphrodisiac’s 1990 cut, “Song Of The Siren”—a gem if ever there was one.
