Start the October long-weekend with an absolute bang with a little surprise from us.. the Groove Dealer crew…

This one going to be large…

**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.

JUZZLIKEDAT //

DJ JUZZLIKEDAT grew up in a musical family. From a young age he taught himself to play bass and drums. At 14 years old he was a keen collector of wax and could only afford one turntable and a mixer. Witnessing the evolution of Hip Hop, his passion for Funk and Jazz inspired him to travel through the many era’s of black music from the late 60′s to more recent digital sounds. Today Juzzlikedat sells records from his Funky hair salon in Surry Hills ‘Le Garage’, trying to cover the different eras of the Soul Jazz Funk and Hip Hop but also the Afrobeat and Brazilian sounds from the 70′s and 80′s. As a DJ and member of the Groove Dealers collective, he has been spinning records in Sydney for over 10 years and played at mad parties and festivals like ‘Playground Weekender’ and ‘Peats Ridge Festival’ further featuring for Mama Feel Good Funk Collective, Soul of Sydney, Syd Def Jam and Funkdafied events. During this time he has supported international artists such as Omar, Sarah Love, John Morales, Nickodemus, Oddisee and Dj Krush to name a few. He also had a weekly show mixing an hour pure afro grooves on Skid Row Radio called “The Warm Up Show”.You can catch him on the 2 turntables weekly at some of Sydney’s funkiest bars namely Café Lounge, Play Bar, Chingalings, Grain Bar, Oxford Art Factory, Martini Bar, Good God and many more.

DJ C’MAN //

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.
