Forget the House of Representatives, senior Labor politician Anthony Albanese is representing house music. Well, house music or whatever he chooses to play when he’s DJ’ing at Melbourne’s Bella Union next Monday.
He’s not the first politician to go from board room to Boiler Room; Vancouver mayor, Gregor Robertson is known for getting behind the ones and twos as is former garage DJ Chuka Umunna from the English Labour Party. Closer to home, Scott Ludlum spun some phat beats for the youth last year.
Judging by Albo’s Spotify playlist (legitimately called ‘Albo’s Playlist’) that he did for Rage, he’ll be cutting Bruce Springsteen into Midnight Oil while yelling “shouts out to P. Garrett!” rather than dropping an acid house remix of Fetty Wap’s ‘Trap Queen’. If you’re down for subliminal political messages in your music, you can pick up a ticket at Bella Union’s website for 35 bones.
