Introducing ★ CHEEKY (www.cheekyobserver.com) & ★ STYNA (Art by Styna), the two immensely talented artists who will be joining us this Sunday to paint as part of live Sydney Street Art Project.

Be sure to check out there amazing work on the links below, both artists have generously donated their time and their talent to be part of the event. Works will be for sale on the day and online via the links below.

★ About CHEEKY ★
WHO

Though I like to travel under the pseudonym “Cheeky Observer”, my real name is Alicia McFadzean.

★ PHILOSOPHY
I love detail, intimacy and that cathartic moment of transformation when a work takes on a life of its own.

I make mistakes.

I look to the world as my teacher in the design space. I like to think that I can learn just as easily from graffiti on the street, as I can a textbook or a computer screen.
I have an insatiable craving for life and all the weird and wonderful things in it. I want to capture these things, piece by piece, and share them with you.

★About STYNA ★

Christina Huynh is a freelance artist and graphic designer based in the suburbia of Sydney’s West. Working under the alias of STYNA, her work is a reflection of the contrast between wildlife and human nature.

Christina mixes human behaviour with animal characteristics and in doing so she tries to illustrate underlying themes of movement and momentum. Although her work is mainly figurative, Christina’s drawings are based on the highs, lows and in-betweens of her life.

Her favourite medium is fusing watercolours with a ballpoint pen however as of late, Christina is delving into the adventurous world of acrylics and spray paint.

★ABOUT OUR DJ’s
▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔
★ Stephen Ferris ★

Stephen, the first DJ and eldest of Sydney’s famous Ferris brothers (dubbed “our Cosa Nostra” by UK soul DJ Norman Jay) started his career in San Francisco in the late 70’s. It was this sojourn to the US that introduced him to what was to become his lifelong passion – soul – be it fashioned in disco, funk, hip-hop, latin, house, jazz or pop.

He arrived back in Sydney in the early 80’s and rejected the prevalent European trends of new wave, romanticism and gothic promoting a funk night at “The Watermelon Club” with his long term collaborator Andy Glitre. Opening in Kings Cross in 1982 on a Monday night, the pair soon outgrew the venue, and moved to The Berlin Club at Jamieson Street playing to a Tuesday night crowd of 1,500 weekly.

From 1984 – 1988 Stephen fronted pop/funk band Flotsam Jetsam. The band enjoyed considerable success releasing five singles and an EP, touring extensively throughout the country, and supporting major overseas acts A-Ha, Queen and Simply Red. Towards the late 80’s Stephen was back as an influential DJ in both the club scene and the emerging dance party scene appearing at the R.A.T., Fun, Mardi Gras,and Sweatbox parties at the Hordern Pavilion and Royal Hall of Industries culminating with the ‘end of the decade’ R.A.T. party with Grace Jones and 20,000 strong crowd.

The late 80’s also saw Stephen move into radio with his national dance show “The Rhythm Method” broadcast on Triple J on Saturday nights successfully until 1993.

In the early 90’s he started promoting the hugely successful “All Souled Out” – Wednesday at Rogues attracting performances by Sisters Sledge, Thelma Houston, Diana King and KC (without his Sunshine Band!). It was the club of choice for private parties for visitors such as Prince, Prince Albert of Monaco, Jose Carreras, and Gerard Depardieu. During this time he also wrote a monthly column for Juice magazine, Rhythm Method.

A collaboration with his brother John in 1999 produced the soundtrack for the City of Sydney New Year’s Eve fireworks.

Throughout the 90’s whilst continuing his club DJ work (see below for details), he emerged as the DJ of choice for any important Sydney social occasion from Bryan Brown & Sam Neill’s 50th Birthday party to a private party for Bill Gates’ visit to James Packer’s wedding. Recently he has been responsible for the success of functions for corporate clients such as Armani, Givenchy, Sony, Austereo, Channel 7, Universal, Columbia Tristar, Village Roadshow, Murdoch Magazines, Clemenger, Macquarie Bank, News Ltd BMW, Mercedes Benz, Fashion Week, NRL, Boston Consulting, Chanel, Warners, Foxtel, Bentley and Benetton amongst others for jobs from film premieres and wrap parties to fashion collections and launches.

Clubs that have showcased Stephen’s unique DJ-ing talent over the years include Kinselas, Soho, Spagos, Hip Hop Club, Kommotion, Ozone, Freezer, Q Bar, Embassy, Goodbar, Home and Yu. He has worked alongside international DJ’s Frankie Knuckles, Paul Oakenfeld, Graham Park, Mike Pickering, Norman Jay, Gilles Peterson and Norman Cook (Fatboy Slim), all of whom speak highly and respectfully of his skill. DJ supports include; Fatboy Slim, Scissor Sisters, Norman Jay, Franie Knuckles, INXS and Grace Jones to name a few. Back to radio in 2000 with All Souled Out at Rhythm FM which built a solid following, seconded to sister station Kiss FM in Melbourne for a short stint in 2001.

FBi 94.5fm beckoned in 2003 and has since held down the morning shift WED to FRI with regular segments including Theatre with Terry Serio “Funk Flashback” with Josh Beagley and the recently podcasting Rugby League hit “Fire Up!” with Brett Oaten. Also moonlighting on James Valentine’s afternoon show on ABC 702 as a musical guest host.

And his penultimate gig, the annual school disco at Darlinghust Public School with the toughest audience in the world, his son and his school mates.

★ Graham Mandroules ★

“A gardener of funky delights of long standing, Graham has been in involved in the music industry in numerous capacities.

Dj, record label owner, promoter, manager, ARIA judge, music consultant, journalist, mentor, booking agent, marketing & promotions, festival director, producer, stage manager, event co-ordinator, radio and many other shapeshifting manifestations.

Graham has performed at probably too many nightclubs, festivals, dance parties, corporate and other events including The Playground Weekender Festival, The Big Day Out, Vibes on a Summers Day, Good Vibrations, Sydney Festival events, The Sydney Olympics, RAT Parties, All Souled Out, International tours, New Years Eve & New Years Day events too numerous to list.

Listing all the artists that he has worked with would appear to be shameless namedropping, though he does have lots of stories to tell to the curious.

Not entirely sure about what he wants to be when he grows up, Graham will continue playing and making music until such time that he is visited by “The Destroyer of Delights and the Parter of Companions.”

★ABOUT SOUL OF SYDNEY
▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔
Created in November 2009, Soul of Sydney is an independent, artist run collective who are bonded by a love of ‘funk’ based music. Our people include DJ’s, Musicians, Producers, Dancers & Designers who have come together to promote and support the music we love in this city, and the street culture around it.

Soul of Sydney Block Party is our monthly Sunday musical afternoon (12-9pm) feast. Focused on a family orientated get together, DJ’s, Record Collectors, B-boys & B-Girls, and musicians come down to share & enjoy some of the music they love in a completely different environment, outside of bars or clubs.
We have an ‘open decks, open mic & open dance floor’ policy just to keep it personal and give everyone a chance to do their thing where locals can come down as our guests outside of a usual club set.

Music styles generally sit at a safe middle ground of Soul, Funk, Disco and a fair bit of Jazz & golden era hip hop stuff too with artists James Brown, Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin, Bob Marley, De La Soul, J Dilla, Stevie Wonder, Run DMC, Grandmaster Flash, Larry Levan among the playlist.

CHEEKY /

WHO

Though I like to travel under the pseudonym "Cheeky Observer", my real name is Alicia McFadzean.

PHILOSOPHY

I love detail, intimacy and that cathartic moment of transformation when a work takes on a life of its own.

I make mistakes.

I look to the world as my teacher in the design space. I like to think that I can learn just as easily from graffiti on the street, as I can a textbook or a computer screen.

I have an insatiable craving for life and all the weird and wonderful things in it. I want to capture these things, piece by piece, and share them with you.

NEW FUNK GOODNESS: The Cactus Channel remix Animaux | Hope Street Recordings


Artist: The Cactus Channel
Title: Animaux – Alaska (Cactus Channel Sp00ky Remix)
Cat #: HSD003
Format: Digital
Release Date: 12 August 2014


Listen / https://soundcloud.com/hopestreet-recordings/alaska-cactus-channel-sp00ky-remix


HERE

Public Web: www.hopestreetrecordings.com/alaska

To commemorate their double header show later this month with Animaux, The Cactus Channel have released a special online remix of Animaux’s ‘Alaska’. It’s not just any old remix though – none of that Ableton shit. The band got into their bungalow and recorded their own song underneath the ‘Alaska’ acapella, completely transforming the original into a spooky soul banger.

A ten piece band from Melbourne, Australia — all born in the 90s and raised on the internet, The Cactus Channel are consistently turning heads and shifting opinions about what it is to be an instrumental 10 piece band in the era of laptop producers and Kanye.

Animaux. They’re young, but rest assured, this is no ordinary teeny-bopper band. Sure, in this day and age of synth and autotune they have a bigger brass section than most bands, but that doesn’t mean they won’t get you up and moshing.

Alaska (Cactus Channel Sp00ky Remix) is only available online and will be performed live once only at The John Curtin Hotel on 29th August.

Rosie Henshaw talks her Soul, her Spirit and the Essence of being Rosie!


Originally posted on Ms Hennessey Speaks Blog:

Rosie 2

She is quite simply….effervescent! I have always wanted to use that word to describe someone I wrote on one day and she has made it happen. Rosie Henshaw has that kind of effect on people, making them do and feel things they wouldn’t normally. Perhaps it the gift of a multi-talented cross-sectional musician/ singer/ songwriter that meanders through this life with the spirit of what it truly means to be connected to the heart of music.

Having taking part in the famed television singing contest The Voice Australia in 2013, that experience was merely an additive in the colourful life of Ms Henshaw. Although she never took the win on the Voice, she is an artist who can confidently have the last laugh as she looks back on her already solid achievements in the global music community. With an eclectic childhood being raised in exotic locations like Hong Kong and…
