Vintage Vibes

Kingston Public is proud to host resident DJs Flash and the Shady Lady with the Sydney institution that is “The Big Payback”.

For more than a decade, “The Big Payback” has rampaged across the radio waves showcasing top-shelf selections of vintage funk, hip-hop, disco and rare-groove records. “The Big Payback” serves up music that you know and love alongside music you can’t Shazam or hear on Spotify. The main game for these selectors is to play music that you’ve never heard before, but wish you had.

At Kingston Public, Flash and the Shady Lady are curating an ongoing live show to compliment their radio program. Along with special guests drawn from Sydney’s underground soul, northern, disco and house scenes, these DJs give us a glimpse into the grooviest corners of their collections.
