I tried to keep most of the list to music related stuff and it’s by no means complete. Some other things that happened were…
- I worked at more than 10 different jobs, I made gutters, threw tires, worked in all kinds of warehouses, art department, maintenance, I was a professional extra and a bunch of other things I’d rather forget.
- I also trained Muay Thai at least twice a week, did some rock climbing, learnt how to play the guitar, wrote nearly everyday, went on some road trips, had my heart broken and became a private detective for hire..
Ok I made the last one up..
So that’s where 2013 went! It almost killed me.
I’m not trying to pat myself on the back with this.. I know a lot of people are waaay more productive.. I’m just trying to keep track.
2014 will be better.
This year was alright.
Huge thanks to all the people that have supported my music over the last year! 2013 has been ridiculous. It’s been amazing and terrible and my most productive to date. I built some stuff, destroyed even more, learnt a bunch and even made a pretty solid record. I couldn’t have done it without a lot of people that were generous enough to give me the time of day. Lets fuck shit up in 2014. Good luck everybody.
4th of January, 2014.
Ed Castle w/ Grifters Inc, Prime, Dynamic Methods and DJ Faint One.
Help me kick off 2014 in a big way with the crew from Nostalgia Entertainment! Tickets available from Moshtix here! http://www.moshtix.com.au/v2/event/nostalgia-summer-jam/69572
"NOSTALGIA SUMMER JAM 2014
Nostalgia Entertainment is back from their hiatus with a stomper line-up guaranteed to smash their last sell-out show in February. Welcome to the Nostalgia Jams. Summer ‘14. See below for official line-up.
Presale - $12
Door - $15
GRIFTERS INC ft. TANDEM RUN
If you’ve seen Grifters Inc and Tandem Run before you know what you’re in for. Except this time you don’t. An old friend will make a comeback to the stage, along with a few regulars and one completely fresh face. This will be their livest show to date, with plenty of surprises and just the right amount of favourites. The Nostalgia kingpins are out to play.

Wordsmith extraordinaire, Pagen Elypsis stalwart Prime will be joining the festivities with his impressive bag of tricks. Since well before his debut album “Good Morning”, Prime has been consistently proving he’s at the top of the pile of Adelaide and Australia’s MCs. Incredible flow. Crazy stage presence. Flawless set. Nuff said.

There’s not many who can channel pure hip hop like the Dynamic Methods lads can. Fresh off a seemingly endless list of battle wins (written AND freestyle), Dunks is set to take to the stage again with Trace; the beat and a mischief maker. Boom bap and rap. Count on it.

Any show that has subsketch as the opener is sure to raise an eyebrow or seven. One of the truly unique voices in Australian music, Subsketch is rocking down to Adelaide fresh off his latest release “World’s Worst Rapper”. If you missed him last February, shame on us, we should have advertised better. If you miss him this January? Well…

DJ FAINT ONE
When I say that there is no-one who can run a party like DJ FAINT ONE, it’s not marketing, or advertising. At this point it’s just fact. If you’ve never seen Faint One spin before, then that is reason enough to get down and see what you’ve been missing. If you have… Then you’ve probably already got your ticket.
