A DREAM COME TRUE: DJING AT SOULFEST SYDNEY

What an amazing day Sydney experienced at the first ever #SOULFEST (one of the biggest soul line ups in the world ever (53 Grammy nominations between them). The line-up included: #DANGELO, #MAXWELL,  #MOSDEF, #COMMON, #ALOEBLACC, #ANGIESTONE, #LEELAJAMES, #MUSIQSOULCHILD, & #ANTHONYHAMILTON.

I was completely honoured, humbled (and extremely lucky) to get the call for support DJing duties as #SOULOFSYDNEYDJS with #SOULOFSYDNEY cofounder DJ PHIL TOKE. A day which I will never forget.

Needless to say this was an extra special occasion for me playing between the sets of the acts I grew up listening to, and still admire today. Along with the all-star international line-up were and a gang of Australia’s leading soul talent.

Check out some pics below!
