Mic Check 1234! is a remix album consisting of rap and punk music. Despite their initial musical differences, the two genres also share many traits. Great rap and great punk both make you want to affect change, to rebel against the status quo, or to simply just get up and move. The music often stemmed from a place of social and economic inequality while exhibiting a fierce do-it-yourself attitude in the process; inspiring kids all over the world to strap on guitars, scream into microphones, ruin turntables, and mash drum machines. My aim was to take my favorite emcees’ more socio-political material and pair it with some of the best punk bands ever. This is the result. Download the full project at http://miccheck1234.com

As Prince Fans around Sydney get ready to experience the man live at performances kicking off next Friday, we though it was about time we dropped a few mix-tapes just to remind everyone just how prolific & extremely talented the man actually is & how much the music world owes to such a talent.
This is part of our “Midnight Mix-Tape” tribute to Prince, It is more a selection of cuts you need to know about as a SOUL, FUNK fan rather than a mix of the Prince run of the mill hits that everyone knows.
Soul Of Sydney, Soul Sounds & Mama Feel-Good Funk Collective will be throwing down the goodness this weekend with a stack PRINCE inspired SOUL, FUNK & BOOGIE as well a solid dose of PRINCE gems from 10pm THIS SATURDAY (MAY 12th).THE PRINCE AFTER PARTY – TRIBUTE!Right after the Concert from 10pm – Late This Saturday (May 12th).Hosted by Soul of Sydney DJ’s & Friends:
JR.Dynamite hails from Sydney, Australia. A fan of filtered DISCO, ballin’ SOUL, flarn flarn filthy FUNK, nostalgic HIPHOP, rootsy REGGAE and Latin BOOGALOO. His latest 7″ release BS vs HCB – No Diggity ( http://tiny.cc/2ztvcw ) hit top 10 in the Hypem internet charts. Keep an ear out for future releases!!

A new night is being hosted at the Whitehorse in Surry Hills
Downtempo, Chill sexy beats brought to you each week by myself (DJ Zac – Seattle, Sydney) and stellar guest DJ’s that play something a little different from their collections. This night is for the music lovers and a great way to hang out and still make it to work the next day (or not).
This night came from my desire to provide a weekly platform in Sydney, like I did in Seattle that offers Downtempo, Rare Grooves and Beats that you just can’t hear at the clubs on the weekend.
I would like to thank the Soul Of Sydney people for putting on the Block parties and other events. The love for music and the great friendly vibe carries on every Thursday night at the Whitehorse.
Most of you have been there or know of the space, it’s gorgeous with tons of room, great mix of people, food and a place you can chill and hear some great beats. Hope to see you all for Nick ‘Caratgold’ Gilmore (Soul of Sydney) and myself.
