Massive props to our brother, Sydney DJ, PRODUCER & all round legend EDSEVEN for warming things up for BROWN SUGAR at our 5th Bday back in November.
I love it hearing DJ’s like this put sets together, stepping away from classic jams & digging deep to put together a beautiful musical journey of all shades of Funk & Soul goodness. Educating & Entertaining, just the way a REAL DJ should. So good to see a DJ dropping everything from Janet Jackson Kaytranada to Norma Jean Bell Moodymann heavy Detroit flavours like it ain’t no thing.. what a DJ, one of our favourites in this city.
This legend was one of the first DJ’s to get on board & trust what we were doing many many years ago when we were still running renegade sound systems in the parks around Sydney… its such a proud moment hearing him drop his new release on our dance floor at the last jam.
73’Till infinity is lucky enough to be hosting a very special guest from NYC’s Turntables on the Hudsonplaying at 73’till Infinity this Thursday at Martini Cafe (529a King St Newtown) with local support from Edseven and friends.

West London born and raised but currently residing on the East Side of the city, Stevie J aka Funkineven is no stranger to night life and sound system culture. From his Grenadian roots, through to the surroundings of Nottinghill Hill carnival and his families own parties, the speaker stacks and record crates were never too far away… and they haven’t left his sights. Influenced by the music of Prince, Leaders Of The New School, The Neptunes, Larry Heard, Kraftwerk, George Clinton and Masters At Work to name but a few, it’s clear to see why Funkineven’s music displays such a colourful and diverse palette of sounds, styles and tempi. Electronically fusing House, Boogie, Soul, Hip Hop and Techno, Stevie made his debut as the third artist to be released on Eglo records.
