DJ Emperor Chin and DJ Fasmwa are SpinDMusic, rocking gigs around Australia and beyond. Nick Toth needs no introduction, you just know it’ll be good...
Sampled Deck -Middle Deck: The Hip Hop tip. We have two live acts on this level; with arguably the best live Hip Hop act in Australia, Harbour Funk is proud to present Diafrix, as well as the mighty MC Hazaduz & DJ CXL from New Zealand. If you haven’t had the opportunity to see Diafrix live yet, then you better get your tickets quick because these guys are gonna raise the roof with their up tempo Hip Hop with conscious lyrics. Checkout their new album ‘Concrete Jungle’ in stores now.
MC Hazaduz is the lead MC/Vocalist with Batacuda Sound Machine, a 13 piece band from Auckland NZ. Joining Hazaduz will be the DJ/Producer, DJ CXL who was the 2003 NZ DMC Champion. Hazaduz performed at ‘SOULed Out Sundays’ earlier this year and was outstanding. Expect an excellent set of quality Hop Hop & Reggae inspired tunes. Check out the tune ‘Rivers of Rhyme’ by Batucada Sound Machine to get a sample of MC Hazaduz’s lyrical flow. Also on this level we will have DJs Mike Who, DJ Ruse, (NZ DMC Finalist 2008) and Gian Arpino.
Funktion Deck - Lower, main deck: At the bottom of the boat you will find out why we call this party ‘Harbour Funk’. With two live 6 piece Funk bands! Sydney’s own Dojo Cuts feat. Roxie Ray will be bringing their infectious live show to the waves (and some new material).
Melbourne’s Deep Street Soul will be launching their debut self-titled album (Freestyle Records, UK) on Harbour Funk! After a sell out show at the Jazz Rooms (The Basement), awesome international reviews and airplay by some of the funk and soul scenes heavyweight tastemakers, this crew are downright dirty. Smooth jazz this is not!
Also, DJs spinning tunes on this level will be Russ Dewbury (Jazz Rooms), Ari Roze (Mighty Highness Recordings) & JC (Funkdafied). Expect to hear music covering many genres but as always with the emphasis on full on, dirty Funk..
