We’re stoked to introduce you to a couple of the epic crews who bring pumping vibes to the Cobb Valley for Twisted Frequency, year in, year out. First up we have Sacral Sound, they’ve been involved with Twisted Frequency since day one.
We’re stoked to introduce you to a couple of the epic crews who bring pumping vibes to the Cobb Valley for Twisted Frequency, year in, year out. First up we have Sacral Sound, they’ve been involved with Twisted Frequency since day one. Starting waaaay back when we were just rowdy wee whippersnappers, Clayton from Sacral Sound gave us a shot and brought his rig out all the way down that long gravel road into the Marlborough sounds for the main stage. Later he moved on to the Groove Lounge/Beat Bach and this year will be running the full system in The Chillery!
The man, the myth, the LEGEND: Clayton is the creator/curator and sonic wizard behind Sacral Sound. With a love for underground music and having spent his youth on many a music festy Dfloor in the 1990’s, Clayton was motivated to contribute to this world that he loved, and back then there wasn't a resident P.A. in the bay… And thus Sacral Sound was born! With the intention to provide Golden Bay with a decent system, it quickly found a place in the underground music scene and became synonymous with quality outdoor sound. This encouraged more events, more people, more dancing, and as the party scene grew so did the system and his skills. Now at over 20 kilowatts, together with lighting, a 3 phase generator and all the know-how and gear needed to run live shows and electronic sessions, Sacral Sound has become an essential part of the local music industry - seen in action in this pic with comedian Ben Hurley.
Let's hear it from Clayton himself: “Over the years I've witnessed many highs and lows but it is the high points that stay with you. For me the dancefloor is a sacred place where people can forget their troubles and be free together - it's a type of group meditation. Many people have told me that this experience changed their lives for the better forever - it doesn't get any better than that!
My greatest joy is making people happy and to see a gleeful crowd losing themselves in the music uplifts my soul. Also providing a nurturing space for young DJ's, producers and live acts to gain confidence and shine. It’s amazing to watch this unfold with many going on to international careers in music doing what they love, I'm very proud to be a part of that journey.”
Having been the provider of big rigs right through the formative years of our outdoor party journeys, Clayton has always been here for our wider crew/scene with endless amounts of time, energy, wisdom and support. We can truly say that we aren't entirely sure we would be here without him! Having stuck with us through thick and thin, Clayton and Sacral Sound are an absolutely integral part of our history and an essential part of our team.
It takes a hefty chunk of blood, sweat, tears and effort to build and run sound systems well and Sacral Sound does it with such passion and sincerity, running on diesel fumes, the smiles of punters, witty banter, crispy beats and BHUTTY BASS. We are stoked as always to have Sacral Sound returning to bring the noise for Twisted 2023 and without a doubt for many more years into the future. We love you Sacral Sound!
