DJ MISS MICAH: Second installment of "BADU MIXTAPE SERIES" for facebook petition!


Erykah Badu hits town for Good Vibrations Festival in 11days! This is the second DJ Mixtape series installment for the ERYKAH ‘I WANT YOU’ facebook petition by Sydney’s own up-and-coming well sought after DJ’s – MISS MICAH!

Miss Micah is Sydney DJ and Radio Producer Micah Araniego. Exposed to a wealth of music through her many years volunteering at FBi Radio and through her day job at Inertia Music, Miss Micah sifts through dozens of releases every week to come up with the best in Hip-Hop, Reggae-Dancehall, Disco and Pop for her
broad ranging sets which take in the above influences and more.

Cutting her teeth with guests spots at World Bar’s weekly installation ‘The Wall’ and also seen DJing with fellow colleague Pocahontas, Miss Micah quickly nabbed peoples attention with her clever mix of the familiar, current cutting edge winners and obscure rarities and has gone on to perform at Playground Weekender, and alongside Salt n Pepa’s DJ Spinderella. You can also find her spinning tunes at a host of Sydney bars and nightspots.

Miss Micah starts 2011 with a bang! With an exclusive Hip Hop mix for the Soul of Sydney Blog, had recently played at the Green Room during Big Day Out in January, and a coveted support slot for Stones Throw Records’ soul man Mayer Hawthorne and the County in February. This is just a taste of things to come for one of the city’s most promising up and comers.

Don’t sleep on this! This is just a small treat for you all!

Soul Of Sydney Podcast #12 – The Australia Day All Aussie FUNK MIX By DJ Kinetic

Happy Australia Day kids, hope you enjoy this ALL Aussie funk mixup by local DJ, Radio presenter and crate digger Dj Kinetic…

Download Here


Since stumbling across the ‘Respect Overdue’ compilation that Creative Vibes put out some years ago, I have been hot on the trail of rare and interesting funky music recorded in Australia, my own backyard. The following mix is a testament to my love of local flavors, and a bit of a poke at people who don’t think Aussies can be funky. This mix includes some of my favorites, some of my discoveries, and a couple of very, very rare numbers. I wanted to make it seamless, but time was a factor in putting this together. Still, for the most part I’ve managed to get tracks to blend into each other. Let me know what you thought! –

Flying Lotus * DâM-Funk * Gaslamp Killer * Opiuo

Niche Productions presents four huge characters of modern music on one stage, in one city for one night only: Flying Lotus, Hudson Mohawke, DâM-Funk and Gaslamp Killer, at the Forum, Friday 7 January 2011.

DâM-Funk side show happening on Thursday also.

Niche Productions is proud to present the Australian tour of the ambassador of Boogie-Funk, Dâm-Funk (Stones ThrowLos Angeles, California). Bursting on to the scene in 08-09, Dâm (pronounced ‘Dame’, as in Damon) won over a slew of fans from Disco-Boogie aficionados, the Beat scene, hardcore Hip Hop heads and Hipsters alike with his debut 12″ ‘Burgundy City/Galactic Fun.’

In 2009, he was one of Stones Throw busiest artists, putting out so much material you’d think he was giving Madlib a run for his money, with the ‘Toeachizown‘ album being released digitally in five instalments, all of which teased fans with different elements of his influences. During this time he also managed to put out a few mix CDs, a beat tape as part of Stones Throw’s  ‘Rhythm Trax’ series and turned in remixes for Red, Baron Zen and superstars Animal Collective. At the tail end of 2009, the album was released in 2CD and deluxe 5LP box set editions.

His Monday night Funkmosphere club night is the stuff made of legends. From record-dealer types with obscene collections to a heavily bearded Joaquim Phoenix and beyond, it’s the spot that everyone is trying to get in to. But Dâm’s roots go well back to a time before ‘Disco’ was a cool word.

Cutting his teeth as a session keyboard player for artists of the G-Funk era like Mack 10, MC Eight and Westside Connection, you can easily hear his hip-hop roots in songs like ‘Hood Pass Intact’, and even though he dresses the part, don’t expect Dâm to get all thugged out on us out here on his debut tour. Dâm-Funk promotes love, spirituality, astrology and good vibes with his music and his open and outward personality – if you’ve ever heard him be interviewed or seen live clips online, you will know he is very generous with his time.

Calling his sound ‘Modern Funk’,Dâm-Funk’s live show takes in both his impeccable DJ mixing style as well as a Live-PA style side which includes vocals and keyboards, showcasing both the original material he writes and records, and the records which have inspired him.

Join us for the show everyone will be talking about for the rest of the year.
