A veteran DJ has been hailed a ‘legend’ after hosting a socially distant music set from his high rise apartment during Brisbane‘s lockdown last weekend.

Tim Wilde, a renowned party performer in his youth who is now an Uber driver, spun the decks with the help of a Spotify playlist from his 17th storey apartment last Saturday night.

A number of his neighbours in Brisbane’s inner-north reportedly ‘loved’ the one hour set, which started at 8pm.

Wilde played a host of classics, including tracks from Cold Chisel and The Spice Girls, as well as Paul Fisher’s electronic house music anthem ‘Losing It’.

The latest hero of Brisbane opted to provide some free entertainment as ‘people may have been locked down, but they weren’t alone’.

‘I thought it would be good for people’s mental health and also give people the opportunity to let off some steam,’ Wilde told 9News.

‘We looked to cater to everyone’s tastes (during the set) and I was even taking requests off Facebook at one stage.’

Claire Hobson, who lives in the same Newstead apartment complex as Wilde, said her neighbour provided ‘joy for many people on a Saturday night in iso’.

‘It was great to see the power of music bringing the community together in such isolating times, particularly for those who live alone,’ she told the Courier Mail.

‘Many people stopped as they passed through the local dog park area to look up and take in the sights of disco lights, phone torches and fairy lights from many of the surrounding balconies… it was awesome.’

Wilde hasn’t ruled out hosting future sets from his balcony, as he was ‘blown away’ by the response of the community. 

‘The response was fantastic, and lots of people joined in,’ he said.

‘A lot of them were singing and dancing on their balconies, it was just a great atmosphere.’
