Saturday September 21, 2013 will see the laneways of Chippendale emerge into a colourful kaleidoscopic oasis unlike any festival our burgeoning city has ever seen!

Hosted by Chippendale Creative Precinct, and Festival Director and President of Chippendale Creative Precinct, Nicky Ginsberg; this year’s BEAMS Arts Festival will provide a platform for emerging artists and musicians to enthrall, enchant, challenge, and engage you to think beyond spaces ordinary and extraordinary.

With this year’s themes of ‘Revitalisation’ and ‘New World Cities’, we ask the question ‘Is the future a place of wonder?’

To help express these ideas of ‘Revitalisation’ and ‘New World Cities’, we are excited to present audiences with a stellar array of talented musicians and DJ’s who are the epitome of revitalisation, traversing with one foot firmly planted in the present, and the other ready to take flight embracing the strange magnetic future that we each have a hand in shaping.

Funkdafied is an Event Promotions Company based in Sydney Australia, promoting regular quality events encompassing many genres from Afrobeat, Latin, Disco, Reggae and Hip Hop.

PRINCE SYDNEY CONCERT: Prince: A Purple Reign (BBC 4 Legends of Black Music Documentary)


Image for Prince: A Purple Reign

Just a bit more Prince Sydney Concert with this 60 Min long BBC 4 Documentary Narrated Trevor Nelson.

A taster o – a documentary film which explores how Prince – showman, artist, enigma – revolutionized the perception of black music in the 1980s with worldwide hits such as 1999, Kiss, Raspberry Beret and Alphabet Street.

He became a global sensation with the release of the Oscar-winning, semi-autobiographical movie Purple Rain in 1984, embarking on an incredible journey of musical self-discovery that continues to this day.

Documentary film which explores how Prince – showman, artist, enigma – revolutionised the perception of black music in the 1980s with worldwide hits such as 1999, Kiss, Raspberry Beret and Alphabet Street. He became a global sensation with the release of the Oscar-winning, semi-autobiographical movie Purple Rain in 1984, embarking on an incredible journey of musical self-discovery that continues to this day.

From the psychedelic Around the World in a Day to his masterpiece album Sign O’ the Times and experiments with hip hop and jazz, Prince remains one of most ambitious and prolific songwriters of his generation. He tested the boundaries of taste and decency with explicit sexual lyrics and stage shows during his early career and in the 1990s fought for ownership of his name and control of his music, played out in a public battle with his former label, Warners. Still in demand as one of the most flamboyant live performers around, Prince remains a controversial and elusive creative force – as much a mystery as ever.

Contributors include Revolution guitarist Dez Dickerson, Paisley Park label president Alan Leeds, hip hop legend Chuck D and Prince ‘Mastermind’ and UK soul star Beverley Knight. < Show less

EARLY RAVE, DEEP HOUSE, TECHNO: 808 State – Pacific 303 (RARE 303 RELEASE)


Roland TR-808 Rhythm ComposerWhen it comes to earthy electronic music.. does it get finer than this by British electronic outfit 808 State.. really digging this 303 version of their signature tune Pacific.

A ‘Summer of Love’ warehouse classic originally released way back in 1989 & still as Deep and Soulful as electronic music will get, an absolute masterpiece of electronic music for mine.

ACID HOUSE CLASSIC: Maurice Joshua – This is Acid (TRAX)


Maurice JoshuaThis is Acid (TRAX)

(Download RARE Original ACID MIX)

In the 1980s, Joshua was active as a DJ and producer in the early days of the house music scene. His earliest productions were released on the Trax Records label. In the early 1990s, Joshua began producing remixes of songs by artists like Ce Ce Peniston, Malaika and many pop artists, including Michael Jackson. He continues to remix to this day.

Joshua is best known for his 1989 number one Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart hit “This Is Acid (A New Dance Craze).” The hit version of this song was a remix by UK DJ Les Adams, who pitted its spoken male vocals by “Hot Hands Hula” Malone against a combination of regional house music sounds of the day, including samples of sirens and sexual screaming voices in the background.

Joshua’s most famous production work was with Kim English and pop group Destiny’s Child. His partnership with the group’s leader Beyoncé was compared to the partnership of Mariah Carey and David Morales, because like Carey and Morales, Joshua and Beyoncé often work closely together to have Beyoncé re-sing her vocals for club mix version of her hit singles.[citation needed] At The 46th Annual Grammy Awards 2004, his remix of Beyoncé’s massive hit “Crazy in Love“, known as “Krazy in Luv (Maurice’s Nu Soul remix)” won Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical.
