UK born, globally-bred and now Melbourne based DJ/producer Lil’ Rossco was amped to announce the official launch and release of his latest mix ‘27 Club’.
Three years in the making, the tribute mix is a nostalgic throwback to the music legends whose lives ended abruptly at the age of 27. Members of this infamous club and those featured in the mix include 44 music makers and shakers who all left their own unique stamp on the industry. Amy Winehouse, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison are just some of the big-name acts featured in the mix.
Lil’ Rossco aka Ross Cornfield serves up the ‘27 Club’ release which effortlessly fuse the genres of rock, grunge and jazz with flavours of electro, metal and blues. Choosing not to be constricted by any one style, Rossco is famous for delivering his own unique brand of impressive beat-making, continuing this trademark style with his latest mix.
To celebrate the launch of ‘27 Club’, Lil’ Rossco engaged Ghost Host to throw an invite only party where punters were invited through the ‘hot doors of hell’ to jam with the hard-partying legends of years gone by. On Thursday May 29th the Melbourne music industry crowd were the first to hear the mix before it set off on its global path.
With Hendrix Burgers, Amy House Wine, themed cocktails such as "Smells like teen spirits" & 'Josmapolitans'on offer, along with an art exhibition and small movie screening displaying respectfully comical versions of the 27 Club characters this was a night to remember as guests celebrated the lives of the most infamous partiers in history.
The event was held in the basement of Donkey Wheel House and an invite only media lunch of 27 guests only was held in the basement prior to the event for key media to hear the album live before it was officially realeased to the public. .
The mix is now exclusively available for free streaming, downloading and sharing, via lilrossco.com and soundcloud.com/lilrossco.
