Influenced by many things such as playing dark disco temple La Dame Noir in Marseille, playing that infamous Jacquemus aftershow in the middle of the lavender fields in the south of France, my recent back to back with La Mverte on Rinse France, and most importantly finding out about Big Time Tommie and DJ Vinnie Dice’s latin freestyle-fueled instagram antics and reflecting on Hi-NRG and Freestyle’s common origins in Italo (you know the kind of musical connections I constantly obsess over).
Hope you dig!”

“It’s august 1997, the aroma of lighter fluid + carne asada fills the air. A lowered civic rolls through a distant stop sign, the muffled echoes of its alpine tape deck cut through the thick humid breeze.

Sundae Suki (AKA Will Nainis) is a Brooklyn based dj/producer and head of the Sundae Sounds label who honed his skills in the Washington D.C. club scene. He’s been dj’ing for the past 15 years but after holding down multiple residencies in both D.C. and NYC, he decided to start over with a focus on the music that inspired him to get into dj’ing. His inspiration ranges from acid house to the classic sound of New York hip-hop and his sets reflect that eclectic spirit.
“My sound has changed a lot over the years. One thing I really value now is how important it is to define your sound as a DJ. It took me a while to figure that out.”
His skillfully made mix for us in Discobelle takes us on a wild ride of rare vinyl releases.
