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!

Rashida’s love for playing music that she loves is infectious.

So much so that that after Prince saw her spin records in 2004 at the House Of Blues in West Hollywood, Prince invited her to play for him. Fast forward to now, and Rashida‘s been travelling with him every since.

In 2010 she began touring with Kelis, travelling the world over as her DJ.

Currently in town as part of the travelling Prince party, she came into triple j to record her signature fusion of hip-hop, funk, soul, dancehall, pop, rock, and house live.
