6th AUG: Wham Bam Thank you Ma’am!! **Dynamite Soul, Funk, Boogie, Breaks & Hip Hop**


So what happens when you drop a few Groove Dealers in a room together, put them behind a set of turntables & tell them to play funk… You get a foonky foonky night filled with awesome party jams 🙂


Residing in Sydney, Australia; DJ CMAN has earned a reputation as a versatile go-to dance floor filler and mood creator with his infectious energy and signature ‘funky feel-good’ sets gaining him loyal fans both young and old.

CMAN has worked in the music industry for over 10 years and performed at Sydney’s most established venues and events including Home Night Club, Oxford Arts Factory, The Basement, Blue Beat, Four Seasons Hotel, The Cafe Lounge, Ching-a-Lings, the infamous Soul of Sydney Block Parties plus events for Funkdafied & Grindin’.

He has played live on numerous radio stations including 2SER and Bondi FM, and supported touring international artists such as Eric Benet, Eric Lau and DJ Sarah Love.

Outside of Sydney CMAN has rocked crowds from the VIctorian snow fields to playing internationally in both Europe and South East Asia.

The son of an ex-record shop owner, it comes as no surprise the path that he would follow. With residencies across Sydney at some of the coolest underground bars to ritzy five star hotels; CMAN’s dynamic skills, musical knowledge and versatility make him an instant crowd favourite.

Rooted heavily in Soul, Jazz and Latin music from childhood, CMAN also grew up on a steady diet of Funk, R&B and Hip Hop. Today he enjoys fusing these influences into his sets with a fine tuned ear and the ability to seamlessly transition through genres; taking patrons on a soulful journey from Funk to Bossa, Reggae to Disco, Hip Hop to Boogaloo and all things in between.


After getting busy as an Mc back in the early 2000′s in and around Canberra ACT my crew at the time ALIKEMINDS supported any and all big hiphop acts that came to town (Jungle Brothers, Braintax/Mystro, Bliss & Esso, Lyrical Commission the list goe’s on) With some of the most raw and talented Mc’s around such as Anton, Audible and the new renown Maggot Mouf (Broken Tooth Melbourne) and Canberra’s very own Dj Buick 3x DMC Champ, we tore up the local Battle scenes and generally represented. Sadly people had to go places and the crew never released any official EP. But the name Caratgold continued as a passionate producer and part time Mc. Now residing in Sydney i carry the torch forward as a local Soul/Funk/HipHop Dj and Beatmaker.


A wax purist & wiked selecta, Dj Dave cowan loves the old skool flava & is pretty mean on the cut…


Benny Hinn (Daniel Robertson) began spinnin’ vinyl back in 01′ playing a range of phat funky house and some chunky big assed broken beats for the masses… Although now only 34, the Hinns has played at some of the finer establishments, parties and festivals around Sydney, Melbourne, Cairns, Spain, Wollongong and the South coast, gaining a rep az a bit of a party starter and one with some def skillz, finesse and sheer artistry on a pair of 1200s.

The Hinn has also toured with the MOS Label for an Annual release and has supported many artists such as, The Stanton Warriors, Freq Nasty, Krafty Kuts, A.Skillz, Jay Jay, Sneaky Sound System, The Resin Dogs, Katalyst, Sarah Love, Shortee Blitz, Frenzie, Total Eclipse, Mr. Doris, Cool Hand Luke, Normski, DJ Katch, DJ A.$.K, DJ KC, Edseven, Inkswel, Omegaman, Busta, Koolism, [love] Tattoo, Mark Dynamix, Ajax [RIP], Bang Gang, Goodwill, Alex Taylor, Funktrust, Purple Sneaker DJs + many many more…

Benny has also been dipping into a little production here and there with a few little mashes and beats all up on his soundcloud & mixcloud page & is host of the Radio Program Sydney Underground on Bondi Beach Radio.

His latest venture has been building and establishing PLAY BAR SYDNEY. After drawing inspiration from his last stint in Melbourne and meeting his partner & co-owner Sarah, the two worked hard to build what they hope to be for many years to come, an institution that brings decent music into Surry Hills Sydney. He has programmed every bit of music that has come through the venue and supported a huge range of hiphop, breakbeat DJs and just awesome beat-makers and producers both local and abroad…
