NEW AUSTRALIAN FUNK: B.M.D.S. by Dizzy Dizcipl (Robotek Records) | [Bboy Funk Break]


We are seriously digging the latest cut from the mighty Dizzy Dizcipl (of Universal Zulu Nation – Chapter 61)

This mature, infectious B-boy-breaks is definitely made with a dance-floor in mind & features an dope rework by Sydney’s legendary DJ & producer, Deejay Mathmatics.

Out on very limited 7” vinyl (and digital) this is certainly one for crate-diggers, DJ’s & anyone who digs the raw instrumental funk energy you might expect from the likes of The Bamboos, Greyboy, The Dap Kings or Mountain Mocha Kilimanjaro.

About Dizzy Dizcipl
Dizzy Dizcipl has been into music since the age of 15 when his Mum bought him a pair of Turntables which started his journey into the world of Vinyl Digging.

“I started collecting any records I thought sounded cool, anything that had Breaks in them.”

(The “Break” is the part of the record where usually the drummer has a solo with minimal accompaniment, common in 70’s Funk Records)

From that, Diz continued to expand his knowledge and dig for rare and hard to find records. From his influence of 70’s Jazz-Funk records, Dizzy decided to take up learning and playing music, his weapon of choice: The Rhodes Piano.

“The Rhodes is such a timeless instrument, and as soon as I heard it, I was hooked.”

Dizzy has just released his first debut original Funk 7” Single titled “B.M.D.S.” Which stands for “By My Damn Self” (As he played all the instruments on the recording) an homage to groups like M.F.S.B. and the Philly Soul Movement of the 70’s.

Heavily Inspired By bands like “The Bamboos” and Brand New Heavies, Dizzy manages to capture a classic sound while still keeping a modern flavour for the ears of the new generation.

(You can catch Dizzy & Deejay Mathmatics spinning “The Get Down”

“529 Hunter Street NEWCASTLE @ The Terrace Bar on the 25th September 2015)

About SOUL OF SYDNEY Collective |

SOUL OF SYDNEY: Launched as a collective in 2009 as a new-years resolution between FUNK and SOUL devotees who were disenchanted with the state of music in Sydney & knew they wanted to do something to help their scene grow.

They are a grassroots independent, artist run cooperative of DJ’s, Musicians, Producers, Dancers & Designers bonded by a love of ‘FUNK’ and ‘SOUL’ based music in all its forms, a creative family working to promote and support the music they admire as well as the street culture around it in Sydney.

Inspired by recent trips to New York’s ‘Body and Soul’, LA’s ‘The Do Over’ as well as the musical ideals and legacy of some of the DJ’s, Clubs and producers who laid the foundation for HIP HOP, DISCO & HOUSE they aimed to bring their own brand of feel-good party spirit to Sydney and to showcase the DJ and Dance talent of our city.

They have sought to encourage an atmosphere where DJ’s, Record Collectors, B-boys & B-Girls, and Musicians meet away from the usual late night bar and club situation, something on a Sunday afternoon where dancers and DJ’s connect through music in a more relaxed and personal setting.

From humble beginnings in 2009 as a blog, they started to host a series of infamous Sunday afternoon block parties, picnics and events in various locations around Sydney by late 2011. Always keeping it fresh with a new secret location (released only to ticket holders), they have thrown parties in all kinds of interesting spaces including; public parks, carparks, laneways, rooftops, warehouse spaces, courtyards and fresh restaurant spaces around town and more recently Bondi Beach Skate Ramp for their reunion picnic 2014.

ABOUT SOUL OF SYDNEY BLOCK PARTY

Back in 2011 SOUL OF SYDNEY collective took a chance purely as a couple of music heads on a sunny Sunday afternoon to throw a one off secret Sunday afternoon picnic. They set up turntables, and a small sound system in a park in the inner west Sydney with a simple idea to bring FEEL-GOOD FUNK & SOUL music in an environment where people had the freedom express themselves, where dancers connected with DJ’s and DJ’s had the freedom to play anything they were feeling. The idea was to try to bring something different for people who were too old for bars and clubs and way too young to give up on music in a unique kid friendly environment in park.

Inspired by the musical ideals of early DISCO, HIP HOP and HOUSE pioneers such as; David Mancuso’s The Loft (NYC), Larry Levan’s Paradise Garage, Kool Herc’s Block Parties, Ron Hardy, Grandmaster Flash and Frankie Knuckles, they wanted to throwback to the roots of those scenes with an open music policy focused dance floor expression and a more inclusive environment.

Three years on those musical ethics have not changed, still very open you can expect to hear an everything from the likes of; James Brown, Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin, Bob Marley, De La Soul, J Dilla, Stevie Wonder, Run DMC, Grandmaster Flash, Larry Levan, Frankie Knuckles just to name a few in a throw back to better days.

Musically you can expect DJ’s to cover some serious ground, from Afro-Beat, Funk, New York Disco, Roller Boogie jams to early Chicago House vibes, classic Hip Hop jams beyond. It is a rare situation where DJ’s have the freedom to play more of the music that inspired them, their musical ROOTS and INSPIRATIONS which they wouldn’t normally be able to play in usual bar and club sets.

SOUL OF SYDNEY are also collaborating with a host of Sydney creatives to also showcase a various street culture elements around the music. They have been working to bring many unique aspects to the events, including live street art, individual designed clothing, live hair braiding, live dance showcases by the likes of SYDNEY STREET ART PROJECT, BILLY KID, EDEN STYLEZZ (Hair Braiding) just to name a few.

Ibiza Pacha Resident DJ Mo’Funk to play Soul of Sydney Ol’School Joint Bday Jam in May


We are absolutely honoured to be able to bring a special Soul of Sydney set from our good friend, Sydney’s own DJ MO’FUNK who is back in town for a few weeks from his extended residency at Pacha Terrace in Ibiza. As one of the finest selectors in Sydney and one of the few DJ’s in the world doing it large in Europe we cant wait to see what he has in stall for our joint bday jam.

Introducing DJ MO’FUNK, one of Sydney’s favorite sons back in town back in Sydney after 7+ years throwing down hip hop, funk, disco and beyond as resident selector at Ibiza’s Pacha.

Check him out doing his thing for DJsounds in 2012, throwing down everything from a dope selection of the boogie, funk and hip hop grooves he is so well known for.

About Mo’Funk
Sydney-bred DJ Mo’funk isn’t just a veteran of the Australian dance music scene, but now an annual fixture on the biggest clubbing playground of them all – the Spanish party isle of Ibiza. Since first venturing there with his record crate as a virtual unknown in 2007, Mo’s racked up sets at too many of the island’s hotspots to name.
His 2012 tour of duty saw him hold down residencies at no less than three clubs: Pacha, Ocean Beach Club, and the big one, Space, where he regularly stepped up to the plate for their We Love… and Carl Cox – The Revolution club nights.

Not content to just bask in the Northern Hemisphere sun, he’s brought some of that Ibiza spirit back to Sydney for summer.

Mo’funk has held the true art of the DJ close to his heart since his introduction to the Sydney club scene in 2001.

Over 14 years of obsessively seeking out good music, both new and old, he’s honed the skills to deliver the goods every time – whether spinning Downtempo Grooves, Soul, Hip-Hop and RnB, or the many flavours of House music he favours. At a club or festival, a cocktail bar or a fashion parade, you know what’s on the agenda when Mo’funk is in charge of your dancefloor: Real Music, Real Skills and the Uniqueness that no one can duplicate.

And, most importantly, the Funk that he takes his name from!

About DP ONE
—————–

Born, raised, and still residing in Brooklyn, New York, Daniel A. Pinero p.k.a DP One has spent most of his life immersed in Hip Hop. As a DJ, b-boy, and even occasionally lacing the mic with some rhymes as an emcee, he puts an immense amount of effort into keeping Hip Hop moving in a positive direction. Besides spinning at parties and b-boy jams around the New York City area as an active member of the Heavy Hitters and Turntable Anihilists, he serves as a resident DJ of two internet radio shows, and has toured internationally with notable artists such as Lauryn Hill, Estelle, John Legend, J-Live, Q-Unique, and Wordsworth. He has also been involved in various high-profile events such as the first Red Bull BC One battle in North America, which was held in New York City and hosted by KRS One.

Born in 1977, DP One began to hone his DJ skills at the young age of fourteen, in the midst of what many consider to be the “Golden Era” of Hip Hop. As a DJ he credits a lot of his foundation to the Alava family, who had the first DJ setup DP ever laid his eyes upon. It was with the Alavas that he deejayed his first house parties, which served as his first glimpses into life as a DJ. Additionally, DJ’s Enuff, Vandal, and Tchak Nasty introduced him to battle videos, taught him his first scratch patterns, and inspired him to enter his first competition. He was later exposed to b-boying by A-B-Girl of the Domestic Apes Crew, which proved to be advantageous to his career as a DJ. He became familiar with break beats and the type of music that brought out the best in various dancers, and applied this knowledge to spinning at b-boy jams and battles, establishing his name as one of the premier talents in the scene. DP, an active member of the Universal Zulu Nation and Supreme Beings, served as the resident DJ of the well-known Braggin’ Rites battles, which have been re-established as of October 2009, and also held down the wheels of steel at notable battles such as Kings of NY, Bboy Massacre, the 2007 Zulu Nation Anniversary, The Battle On Shaolin, and the Skill Methodz 10th Year Anniversary.

While he was making a name for himself amidst the b-boys and b-girls of New York City, DP was still making sure that he was making moves in other realms of Hip Hop as well. As his DJ career progressed, he had the opportunity to DJ for the likes of Miri-Ben-Ari, Lauryn Hill, The Fugees, Estelle and John Legend. His cuts and scratches have been featured on a multitude of tracks, including those of artists such as Pumpkinhead, Jadakiss, Marco Polo, Immortal Technique, Kurious Jorge and Statik Selektah. He also teamed up with DJ’s Blowout, Xplor, and GI Joe to form a crew known as Turntable Anihilists, who have been living up to the name for quite a few years by releasing various mixtapes that have received positive reviews, including the Fire Your DJ and Underworld series. He has also appeared on TV shows such as MTV’s My Super Sweet 16 episode about Star Trak recording artist Teyana Taylor. DP even performed in a Broadway play entitled Soular Power’d, produced by Kwik Step and Rokafella of Full Circle Productions. This opened the door to another Broadway opportunity in the form of NY Hip Hop Legends, produced by Rennie Harris. Both productions ran successfully for three weeks at the prestigious New Victory Theatre in NYC. Besides performing in New York hotspots such as SOB’s and the Nuyorican Poets Café, DP One has performed on various continents, rocking shows in Colombia, South Africa, Japan, Iceland and in nearly every country in Western Europe. Currently, thanks in part to the growth of technology and the internet, DP one showcases his talent for free to the world, in the form of two internet radio shows. He is one of the resident DJ’s for The Wax Cafe on pncradio.fm from 5pm to 7pm (EST) Fridays, with host Social Ebonics. He also appears every Wednesday night on The B Side with DJ Enuff & DJ Quiz from 10pm to 12am onwww.alistradio.net.

Although DP One places emphasis on showcasing the positivity that Hip Hop has to offer to the world and making sure that he is contributing to the progression of the various art forms that it encompasses, he takes this same approach to a smaller scale and strives for progression on a personal level. As a person who is constantly seeking to learn different scratch patterns, perfect a new routine, and dig through crates for hidden gems, he continues to grow and expand his knowledge and skills as a b-boy, DJ, and emcee, as styles, music, and technology evolve as well. The sky is the limit for DP One as he looks forward to nothing but bigger and better things to come in the future.
