Following on from the Funkdafied Pop Up Party we did in September we have got an even bigger venue and will have several areas of music…..
We have managed to put together a big line up for this one and we are also introducing a new concept for this event. We will have a dedicated area for children between the age of 4 years old to 15 years old to come and get an introduction to DJing. This area will run from mid-day to 5 PM with plenty of DJs on hand to help the children. There will also be professional dance instructors to help the children to learn dance moves. Please note that all children need to be accompanied by adults at all times while at the event. Also there will be the option for parents to enrol their children into regular DJ classes and we will give the students the chance to DJ at future Funkdafied Events. We want to help the next generation of aspiring DJs………
We will be announcing the venue closer to the time but we can let you know it is in the inner west and easily accessible. Now onto the huge line up, we are proud to announce that we have Zac Hendrix, (DJ for Del the funky homosapien) headlining the Hip Hop room with the following line up of DJs;

★More About Raine Supreme/
Raised in the inner city of Sydney during the 80s, Raine couldn’t help but be infatuated with the Growing scene of chaos and fresh styles around him that he would come to know as HipHop. After hearing crews like Boogie Down Productions and Public enemy on tape he couldn’t help but to find out how they were going about putting together these masterpieces….
Thinking back now he would have had no idea just how much these cassettes would effect his life. The search for the perfect beat began. Becoming an avid collector of HipHop and the breaks that built the scene he quickly realised this was gonna be his life long obsession, from wax to radio recordings and even reel to reels – no where is safe from the dusty fingers of this man. Since cutting his teeth in the dj scene of the late 90s and early 2000s Raine ha supported some of the most legendary names in the scene, artists such as – Jurassic 5, Apollo Brown, Dj JS1, Boogie Blind, Total Eclipse, Def Wish Cast, Exile, Pharoahe Monch, Afrika Bambaataa, Parliament Funkadelic, Dj Suspect, Rahzel, Quik, Kurupt, De La Soul, Blak Twang, Dj MK, Delta and many, many more. Raine also keeps his hands busy Co-hosting and djing for Hardcore Classic radio on user 107.3, running the NSW chapter of the DMC world dj championships, running local scratch jams, club nights, one off events and releasing an onslaught of mix tapes and fresh beats non stop….

2SER FUNK FUNDRAISER on Sunday OCT 26 (Get discount Tix HERE) special to help raise some money for Sydney much loved local radio station 2SER (who just happen to be turning 35 this year)
What an amazing day Sydney experienced at the first ever #SOULFEST (one of the biggest soul line ups in the world ever (53 Grammy nominations between them). The line-up included: #DANGELO, #MAXWELL, #MOSDEF, #COMMON, #ALOEBLACC, #ANGIESTONE, #LEELAJAMES, #MUSIQSOULCHILD, & #ANTHONYHAMILTON.
I was completely honoured, humbled (and extremely lucky) to get the call for support DJing duties as #SOULOFSYDNEYDJS with #SOULOFSYDNEY cofounder DJ PHIL TOKE. A day which I will never forget.
Needless to say this was an extra special occasion for me playing between the sets of the acts I grew up listening to, and still admire today. Along with the all-star international line-up were and a gang of Australia’s leading soul talent.
Check out some pics below!
Who’s playing that funky ish?? Moi – DJ CMAN! Big ups to my boy DJ TREY for snapping this shot!
Official Artist Line Up Flyer – SOUL OF SYDNEY DJS
ALOE BLACC ( Motown era soul, pitch perfect performance)
PHIL TOKE (Bringing some funk heat to Soulfest)
COMMON AKA COMMON SENSE (brought the raw energy!)
Ayo sound man! Where’s my monitor?! Propped up on the Spotify stage where all the local acts did Sydney proud.
With DJ TREY before a quick changeover, my man rocked it (cheeky bastard dropped Brown Sugar right after D’Angelo’s set – gotta give the people what they want)!
D’ANGELO (there is only one. Was getting emotional seeing him live. Real Artist, Real Musician – this was my performance highlight).
D’ANGELO (yes, the ladies goin’ wild behind me)
“Bro,can they hear me?”, “Yes man, ladies up front singing “R-E-S-P-E-C-T” :)
MAXWELL (straight butta, super smooth, kinda reminded me of Marvin Gaye in some respects, another personal favourite, Urban Hang Suite son!)
MAXWELL (workin the 12-15ish thousand strong crowd like a pro)
MAXWELL (a fitting end to an incredible event – taken from the DJ booth where we were spinning)
