I know you want to know more about Huw Longman....see him on the decks @ The Argyle this Saturday 20th August from 9pm! Keep an eye on our DJ line up posts for more gigs.

Tell us the story of how you started DJ-ing at The Argyle?

I started DJ-ing at the Argyle just over a year ago after I was lucky enough to win a DJ competition held at the venue. Since then I haven't looked back learning from the best, that being the residents that rock the joint week in week out and have been spinning in the industry for many years.

How would you describe your style?

My style would have to be jackin funky house. Its toe tapping westcoast beats and you will regularly see me moving my two left feet up in the DJ box! I see myself as a warm up DJ that sets the vibe and warming up from 9pm on saturday nights for the man Phil Hudson is always my favourite set!

Who influences your music?

The beats I spin are especially influenced by Sonny Fodera, The House Inspectors, Miguel Migs & anything from the Salted label, Inland Knights, Ministry of Funk, Joshua Heath, Jeremy Joshua, Nathan G, Hector Couto, Roberto de Carlo, Da Sunlounge, Corduroy Mavericks , Kinky Movement, DJ Mes and most importantly the Argyle’s own Random Soul; make sure you check out their live gig next month at the Argyle, you will be blown away! (keep an eye out for updates!)

What’s on the cards for you in the next few months?

Looking to be a busy few months with some new opportunities opening up around Sydney. Currently saving to hit my first Winter Music Conference in Miami early next year which I’m extremely excited about, great chance to see some amazing international artists all in one crazy party fuelled week in Miami! Cant wait to keep everyone moving at the Argyle as spring hits, going to be a great summer!

What's the goss from The Argyle?

It’s exciting times at the Argyle at the moment so everyone needs to come down and check out the fresh entertainment that give our venue our X factor!
Funny stories?...Ha I do laugh at the flying serviette plane with a number attached from the dancefloor!
