★About the Party:

Soul of Sydney Block Party is officially turning two & we want to throw down and celebrate with our extended soul family & friends who have blessed us with their presence, and made the last two years a so unforgettable.

We are honored to be hosting our 2nd birthday jam featuring a main musical inspiration for us as DJ’s & music fans & party organizers. We are blessed to present legendary record collector, DJ & Disco/Funk edit & remixing don, DJ Kon (of world famous crate digging duo Kon & Amir)

Kon comes armed with a stack of Soul, Funk, Disco, Hip Hop heat, known around the world for keeping it fresh with the hottest edits, remixes & musical knowledge for days. We can honestly say we cant wait to get him on to throw down the goods at our 2nd birthday.

Sending some mad love to the DJ’s, Dancers & Extended Soul-family who have shared the dance-floors, turntables & picnic blankets with us over the last two years, you guys really are the ‘Soul of Sydney’ & you have made the last few years so memorable for us. We are so blessed to have you all at our jams, and in our lives. Thank you all for the support. we hope we can see you all down there at our 2nd birthday.

★ABOUT KON:

“Those BBE records were just phenomenal. I think (he was) very much ahead of the curve when it comes to just digging that much deeper and ever since all those came out, there’s been a whole heap of new generation compilations – very next level stuff. Where the hell can you get all that music from?! Proper diggers!” – Gilles Peterson

There are only a handful of DJ’s worldwide with a reputation widely acknowledged as being one of the best. Known amongst his peers as the best disco DJ, a detailed crate digger, and an innovative producer with direct access to master tapes only a rare breed of producer’s are able to access, KON remains one of the most respected producer’s responsible for the re-emergence of disco with his innovative re-edits of soul, funk and disco classics. His re-edits have propelled him as one of the most sought after producers across the globe, cementing his authority in the music industry.

Born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts, Kon has built his career spanning over 20 years centred on his first love of crate digging. One half of critically acclaimed Kon & Amir (BBE), whereby together, they introduced rare grooves to a wider audience, Kon’s solo efforts began years prior to the union of Kon & Amir. Crate digging from 1976, DJing from 1985, progressing on to rocking club floors from 1991 till present, his love affair with vinyl and expertise is often called upon by many heavy weights from Kanye West, and Dr. Dre to name but a couple.

Kon’s DJing ability traverses many genres, professing the element of versatility as the key to a successful DJ, naming Spinna, Kenny Dope and Bobbito Garcia as successful DJ’s, due to their versatile sets.

With a new original album released on BBE called “On My Way” available now, the 11 track album features mostly unfamiliar vocalists such Amy Douglas, Georg Levin, with the exception of Ben Westbeech – a name synonymous within the current Soul community. Think sweeping strings, sporadic slap bass, and a multi-dimensional, floor thumping disco revival.

Sydney audiences will hear the rare selection masterminded by Kon as he plays a very special set at SOUL OF SYDNEY 2nd Birthday event on the 17th of November, 2013 – Venue is a secret oasis in the city! KON is a unique visionary, a remarkable DJ with the history of music at his fingertips.

Prepare to throw down!

★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 amongst the playlist.

TYPHOON HAIYAN FUNK & SOUL RELIEF CAMPAIGN :
A local Soul & Funk community campaign to help raise money for the Philippine Red Cross & Typhoon Haiyan.

We are proud to be kicking off an ongoing music community fundraiser initiative for the devastating typhoon that has left thousands of people dead, and many more thousands displaced, searching under tonnes of rubble for survived family members.

Typhoon Haiyan – considered the worst typhoon recorded in history, ripped through central Philippines on Friday across 5 towns, and now in dire need of our help.

With aid yet to completely arrive, many of the Filipino’s continue to starve, living in unhealthy conditions, with dirty water, and minimal basic aid or protection.

Please dig deep and throw in what you can.

ALL PROCEEDS WILL GO TO PHILIPPINE RED CROSS!

The campaign will be a collective effort by some of Sydney’s local music scene DJ’s, Artists, Websites, Radio Shows & Fans to help raise awareness and funds for recent tragedy in Philippines, we will be running an online fundraiser campaign along with with various donations at music events during the next few weeks.
