About Say Whut?!
After surviving a collision with a tanker truck filled with milk and toxic waste (it was a special truck) when he was just a boy, DJ SayWhut?! was in a coma for 4 years where he dreamt of nothing but cheeseburgers. When he awoke he found that he had the ability to hear lower end frequencies very clearly and could foresee what the next song was going to be chosen (in shuffle mode) on a person’s iPod from 100 yards away. The iPod was then invented 15 years later. This brought on a revelation that he should play music in some form or another. When making fart noises with his armpits wasn’t enough he decided to pick up the headphones and become a DJ.
Cutting his teeth as a breakbeat DJ in Sydney in 2004, DJ SayWhut?! has always been known to play some of the funkiest basslines in breaks – keeping it hard and bouncy yet keeping the people dancing on the floor. With residencies at Broke’n’beats @ Kink and Chinese Laundry, SayWhut?! has played to a wide variety of crowds knocking them senseless to the floor with his barrage of bassline melodies and quick mixing ability. After the breakbeat phenomenon went out of fashion, SayWhut?! looked towards more organic sounds and started playing funk, soul, disco, boogie, hip hop and R&B still staying true to that funky bassline mentality.

Catch DJ Say Whut?! playing some regular residencies around town Ravisis in Bondi, at our Soul of Sydney Block Parties & this weeks ‘History of Hip Hop’ special as part of Sydney Fringe Festival.

HISTORY OF HIP HOP – THURS Sept 12 :

2SER’s popular History of Hip Hop series returns to Sydney Fringe. Stepping back in the ring for bout three, it’s East Coast versus West Coast as 2SER’s own DJ Frenzie (Groove Therapy) and the In The Red crew go up against Raine Supreme and Saywhut.

After a string of unforgettable warehouse parties featuring the likes of Funkineven, Linkwood, Mark de Clive-LoweSteve Spacek and Raf Daddy, Lioness Presents is venturing inside, spending a winters night deep and warm within the surrounds of the Goodgod Danceteria.

Flying in to join us is Detroit native RECLOOSE (Rush Hour / Delusions of Grandeur / Planet E).

A mighty fine DJ with 15 years of international gigs and celebrated productions under his belt, Recloose sprang to fame via his soulful-future-funk releases on Carl Craig’s Planet E label. Following LP releases on both Peacefrog and Sonar Kollektiv he has since found a home at Rush Hour, unleashing a solid run of dancefloor 12’s spanning House, funk, disco and techno vibes. The past couple of months have seen Recloose heating up floors around the world, with his visit to Sydney rounding off a tour that has included Plastic People (LDN), Panoroma Bar (BLN) & Do Over (LA).

“Pure gold.” PITCHFORK

“Recloose is the grain of sand from the beach that is somehow still in your hair after you shower. It is music at its greatest, with a real focus on melody, measure, and mood.” URB

“(Recloose) lies at the intersection of several scenes bubbling up around electronic dance: moody techno; the half-programmed, half-live sound of broken beat; the computer-processed turntablism of Prefuse 73; even synth-heavy jazz from the late ’70s and early ’80s (later borrowed by Chicago househeads like Larry Heard).” ALL MUSIC

Also joining the party is original Lioness fam INKSWEL, a master of 80’s drum machine boogie and all that good future soul stuff. The Melbourne resident has a lovely set of records forthcoming. Labels like Firecracker, Dopeness Galore and Faces are all queuing up to get their hands on his p-funk synth joints. Mosca, Erol Alkan, Mr Beatnik and Ruf Dug have all found space in recent sets for some of his jams. If that’s not enough, he also finds time to run Hot Shot Sounds, a young vinyl only imprint showcasing the likes of Freekwency & Nite Class.

Lioness residents Edseven, Henry Compton and Fred Tectonic fill in the gaps, join the dots and generally play great old and new records to keep the vibe moving.
