Born and bred in Melbourne, A.D.D. aka Jarrod Porter has been working his magic behind the decks for nearly 10 years.  Playing in clubs in and around Melbourne, A.D.D. has supported & played along side the likes of Fred Falke, Joakim, Proxy, Thomas von Party, Tittsworth, DJ Kaos (DFA), Idjut Boys, Felix Cartel, Russ Chimes, Moulinex, Xinobi, Shadow Dancer, Bag Raiders - just to name a few. 
Born in Canberra and bred in nearly every corner of the globe, Lopan aka Nick Jamieson finally settled back in Australia.  Discovering only recently that a talent lay hidden behind his earlobes and under his fingernails, he began his obsession with the black art of mixing.  
The Something Sessions is a means for disc jockeys A.D.D. and Lopan to experiment with music that wouldn’t normally be heard in clubs around Melbourne.  The Something Sessions represent the freedom that we as DJs have to play the sounds that we want to hear, regardless of what the general public demand. The aim of the sessions is to take the listener on a sonic journey transcending time and genre, yet with a solid grounding in the groove.  By recording the mixes live without any production help, the mixes retain a raw and fresh quality in keeping with our style.  
Recorded live on 2 CDJ 800s, a Numark X9 and laid down using Ableton Live, the first installment is a taste of what’s to come.  Ranging from Canadian Nu-Funk masters Neighbour to the Middle Eastern flavour of Wareika’s 'Mountain Ride' and ending with Donovan’s brilliant Daft Punk inspired rework of The Joubert Singer’s 'Stand On the Word,' I guarantee it will leave you wondering where you’ll be taken next… - LOPAN aka Nick Jamieson

People who dig disco-funk in it's truest most unadulterated form will love this mix... Nick Jamieson is an old friend from middle school - I've been listening to his sets quite a bit recently - this one really has my feet tapping.  Dope bass lines, great vocals and how can you not respect DJs who find a way to slip in The Man In Black into their mixes.  The last tune on it is magic. It's been on repeat all week - give it a twirl, it'll be worth it. - SG
