Mikey Barker hosts The Bridge: An Insider’s Guide to Sydney Music

April 13th 2017

  • Mikey Barker :: The Bridge - Guest Host - April 5, 2017


As part of our new monthly artist takeover series, we threw Mikey Barker in front of the mic as guest host of The Bridge.

While you might not know him by name, there’s a strong chance you’ve enjoyed one of Mikey’s musical projects – he plays guitar in Bleeding Knees Club and Neighbourhood Void, and bares his heart and soul with solo project, Dying Adolescence. As busy as he is talented, we figured Mikey would be the perfect guide to what’s brewing in Sydney’s independent scene right now. We were right!

Mikey’s playlist features tracks from his various projects, including a bunch of unreleased music from the likes of Aurora Motel and Space Carbonara. He also introduces us to a bunch of talented mates from all corners of the local scene, like E4444e, Nick Nuisance & The Delinquents, Lupa J and more.
