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)

NEW MUSIC: Sydney duo YUM YUM just dropped their latest collaboration and it is straight FUNK dance-floor fire!


Sydney duo YUM YUM & The Brass Knuckle Band just dropped their latest collaboration and it is straight FUNK F.I.R.E!

NEW SYDNEY MUSIC: Massive respect Sydney based duo YUM YUM for keeping it FRESH! Their latest release out today & featuring Canberra’s powerhouse ‘THE BRASS KNUCKLE BAND’ along with Felix Akurangi and Patrick Antonio Torres on guitar and bass is straight FUNK FIRE just made dance-floor.

This is honestly, in our opinion one of the freshest local releases out this year and has the kind of raw FUNK energy you could expect from the likes of Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings.
