Guests are encouraged to explore a bit further into their collections with an opportunity to step away from the dance floor if they desire.
For this episode we welcome Jay White from the Got Music Social Club residing on the land of the Gadigal people Sydney, Australia. He has many years behind the decks and is a passionate purveyor of all things music particularly anything a bit left field electronic, and always happy to share his musical enthusiasm and knowledge.
For episode Thirty one Jay cooks up an expert blend of his "smashed boogie or schmoogie" incorporating forward thinking future bass, IDM and breakbeat chaos that keeps it funky and engaging throughout the duration.
Turn it on and up loud, and enjoy the vibe, I know I have already with repeated listens on my commute.

No worries, thanks for the invite. I enjoyed putting it together.
What was the inspiration for this mix? It’s a bit different to what I have heard you playing out.
Ahh you see that depends on the hour of the day you get to hear me play. I enjoy a lot of different styles of music with a few things in common.
It's got to be dubby, big bass, syncopated / grooved up and generally outright strange. Doing a mix for RecThera gave me the opportunity to flex a little more into the electronic uptempo side of things which I just relished. I call it smashed boogie. or Schmoogie for short.
Tell us a little bit about the Got Music Social Club and how that came about.
Having kids certainly slowed things down in life for a while and I sorely missed the exchange of music week in week out amongst friends and other DJs. So a message group was started where we'd share our weekly finds with a small group of friends. As more and more people were added it was necessary to bring it to a different platform. That's how the GMSC facebook group started.
It was only about 50 people back then. So it grew...and grew and it seemed only logical to start hosting a social evening. I couldn't think of 2 better DJs in Sydney to host it with than Sinclair and Lyndon. Hands down my fav Sydney DJs, as they've always played such interesting music. So... here we are, 2 years later with over 450 members and we've been throwing some killer musical gatherings. Having you down has definitely been one of those highlights
What has been influential for you musically in the past, and also more recently?
I grew up on a steady diet of reggae / ska, punk, grunge and indie music as a teen but then I heard a few pivotal things. Namely the Shamen's In Gorbachov we Trust and Primal Scream's Screamadlica and it changed my life forever.
Here was this crossover infectious, beated up electronic music. I found myself in house and techno clubs shortly after. But I still remember the night where my love of weird and busted up music seed was planted in my heart. Andy Weatherall, in the middle of a slammin techno set turned the music off and dropped a 100bpm broken stepper and I never looked back. thanks MR. Weatherall. RIP. an inspiration to many. From there its been all beats and breaks, in their many forms, right up to today.
Recently, I'm obviously quite enjoying the whole 90s renaissance thing with everyone digging their breakbeats again, but not the artists who are just relentlessly reliving the past in its exact detail. I'm talking the artists who are taking it to new heights. Just the way jazz was given a new lease in life via sampling these old breakbeats have sprung back with a new definition in a new era. Think Seekers International and you'll know what I mean.
What are you listening to right now?
Right now ? I'm listening to a Hidden rivers album called Golden Age of Dereliction. A gorgeous album of electronics released late last year on the great Serein Records. Love this stuff, its ambient and relaxing while being exciting and uptempo at the same time.
Who or what is inspiring you musically and otherwise?
I'll throw a few names in the mix here which are almost instant buys when I see something new from them.. Glenn Astro, Skee Mask, Khotin, Seekers International and Robot Love. its a wide range of music here but again it's all held together with a connective tissue of beats and bass which stands proud on the sounds of the past whilst firmly pushing music into new boundaries for the future.
And lastly, my kids are a huge source of inspiration. Trying to live a life as an example to such young minds is an incredible challenge that makes you a better person each and every day.
Where can we see or hear your next project?
Our next Got Music Social sees us throwing one of our Blended evenings with none other than Sydney's legendary Frigid crew.
Sir Robbo is relocating forever and so it seemed fit to give him a proper send off. So we're being joined by the OG Frigid crew Sir Robbo, Sub Bass Snarl, Eli and Prince Valium for a one night only affair at the Lord Gladstone on Friday 26th May. 6pm - 3am.
Free entry before 10 and $10 bucks after.
You can find the full details for the event here.
Anything else you would like to share?
YES ! never stop doing what you love. We've also just started a new Fan page that will keep you up to date on our future events here.
