Wiikid run of events happening here in Sydney this week!
Thursday night catch the opening of ‘Thursday Throwbacks’ at Haymarket Hotel on George St. An old mate just took over this busy after work spot and it’s got a great food and drinks menu which won’t blow holes in your pocket. I’ll teaming up with my man DJ MAKOTO from 6pm til late – stacks of funk,soul, disco, hip hop and good time grooves.

I’ll be on the decks with the amigos Benny Hinn, Dave Cowan, and VJ Spook Aka New Jack Nicholas from 7pm til midnight.
Sunday day-night: Can’t wait to join the Sound Agents crew for the first time at ‘Soul On Top’ on the balcony level @ Crows Nest Hotel. This is a new Sunday weekly with a heavy line-up of dope DJs and Musicians on rotation.
This Sunday i’ll be joined on the platters with my old school bro MR Jayson, K-time, and Will Brown (live acoustic set). 3pm to 11pm on the northside with all the old school
If you’ve never checked out The Greens North Sydney, it’s a pretty epic spot to spend a summer’s afternoon/evening. Tonight I’ll be playing some vibey soul, jazz-fusion, disco tinged beats overlooking the city. 8-11:30pm. Great wine/beer selection and excellent food.
A little taste of the vibe:
throwing down some uptempo funk, soul, disco and retro favs and classics from 9:30pm til 2am to start off the weekend this Friday night at Sackville Hotel in Balmain.
I was going to post this yesterday but i basically spent there entire day completely numb and in disbelief, that one of my heroes and icons had passed. It was only 2 months ago i saw him live in concert, and had a strange feeling as he left after the 5th encore that it would be the last time i got to see him. Few artists have had the impact he’s had on modern music (see my instagram post at the bottom).
Here’s a all Prince mix i did a few years back, exploring more of his earlier funk catalogue. I woke up at 9am the day after his show i made this mix still on a high from his concert the previous night 3 years ago.
And here’s one for the DJs, this edit i made of “I wanna be your lover” was catching a lot of steam on soundcloud before it got deleted so i’ve re-upped it on heart this. Free download.
