GIGS: THURSDAY 1ST JUNE @ HAYMARKET HOTEL // FRIDAY 2ND JUNE @ PLAY BAR

Hyped to be laying down the cuts this Thursday night again at Haymarket Hotel: think funk, soul, hip hop and r&b flavas for a cooled out thursday spot after work. The venue is right on george st in the cbd near chinatown, you can catch a dinner special with free beer for pocket change, great beers on tap in a relaxed atmosphere; catch some sport on the big screen and vibe out to the beats. Nice mixed crowd from early on til late 1am or so! Over the past weeks we’ve had some Sydney heavyweight selectas holding down Thursdays like DJ TREY, MR JAYSON, DJ MAKOTO, DJ ADVERSE, JUZZLIKEDAT, KRYSTEL DIOLA, PHIL TOKE to name a few.

This Friday I”m joining the homies D-COW (killa man on the cuts) and DJ AMITY (the deck mistress who always rocks the crowd) at our favourite underground bar, PLAY BAT in Surry Hills, FREE ENTRY til 12am, and you can be sure of some phat and phonky beats through soul, funk, disco, hip hop and breaks. Always a cool crowd and always a riot on Fridays!

**PARTY BREAKS, GHETTO-BOOGIE, SOUL, FUNK, AFRO-BEAT**

Reigning from the heart of Sydney City, This collective of Djs and music enthusiasts thrive not only because of their connection to quality hip hop, jazz, funk and afro-inspired music, but also because of their ability to grow, adapt and work as a cohesive unit. Blending the fresh with the classics, the popular with the obscure; their combined experience, music knowledge and independence has allowed them to explore and incorporate from unexpected sources, each member with their own niche which combined together, results in a party atmosphere uniquely their own.

A unique collaboration of this leading group of Sydney Djs has seen them come together and forming a Dj Collective as part of The Groove Dealers road show and resulted in a recipe of infectious beats, hooks, cuts, feel good rhymes and funked up party jams. Together for The Groove Dealers over the last 3 years they have played at self organised parties in Sydney and toured to the Victorian snow fields playing to capacity crowd’s creating a ‘hands in the air’ party experience.
