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’.

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.

NICK CARATGOLD //

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.

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…
