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.

SHAN FRENZIE //

Frenzie has been around the block more than a few times. He’s got well over twenty years of experience behind him, a record collection that will make any deejay envious, and a concrete rep as one of Australia’s most trusted party rockers. Taking inspiration from when DJ’s used to play for no less than 6 hours straight and transition between styles: Original Soul & Funk 45′s – check. Deep House, Disco & Boogie – check. Hip Hop, R&B, Breaks & Beats – check. Party anthems and forgotten classics – check. Frenzie has got you covered.

His Groove Therapy radio show (now in it’s eleventh year) has been broadcasting weekly on 2SER FM every Friday lunchtime and has become an essential listen to all musically savvy Sydney-siders, while the podcast of the show has garnered a huge loyal fan base in all corners of the globe.

A veteran touring DJ of the Australian east coast, Frenzie also recently rocked dance floors in San Francisco and New York – and has had support billing alongside a who’s who of DJ royalty. Infact, pioneering deejay Grandmaster Flash requested Frenzie as his official support DJ for his most recent 2013 Sydney tour (four shows in total) – and only months earlier, Frenzie could be seen cutting it up on the turntables on stage with New Yorks Hip Hop legends The Ultramagnetic MC’s.

…and it’s no small wonder – Frenzie definitely has the skills to pay the bills. In 2012 he placed second in the New South Wales heats of the DMC, the most prestigious DJ competition in the world (He’s last foray into battle deejaying was almost twelve years earlier).

But can he rock a party? Frenzie has been dropping memorable sets for years. Whether it be a one hour power mix or an all night marathon set behind the turntables, Frenzie has plenty of experience reading the crowd and always drops an entertaining set – custom built from carefully considered quality jams and a dash of turntable trickery. Not only can Frenzie mix a record, he has definitely earned his stripes as the number one chief party rocker.

JUZZLIKEDAT //

JUZZLIKEDAT grew up in a musical family. From a young age he taught himself to play bass and drums. At 16 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 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 represented by Mama Feel Good Funk Collective, The Groove Dealers, Soul of Sydney, Syd Def Jam and Funkdafied events. During this time he has supported international artists such as Omar, Sarah Love, Ray Mann 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, Oxford Art Factory, Martini Bar and many more.
