DUB REGGAE AFRO-BEAT FELA: Bob Marly-Exodus (Bill Laswell Dub) + Fela: Music Is The Weapon Screening (African Film Festival Sydney) Feat The Liberators & Soul of Sydney DJ’s


After a hard day’s work, some people rush to the bottle, some the pipe. While others just turn on their speakers.

This is one for those kinds of people, my kind of people. Perfect Monday night vibes.

Bob Marly – Exodus (Bill Laswell Dub)

Also for those into African Music vibes be sure to keen an ear out for the African Film Festival fundraiser “MUSIC IS THE WEAPON’  that will showcase the amazing documentary from 1983 on FELA KUTI by the same name.

Soul Of Sydney Podcast #12 – The Australia Day All Aussie FUNK MIX By DJ Kinetic

Happy Australia Day kids, hope you enjoy this ALL Aussie funk mixup by local DJ, Radio presenter and crate digger Dj Kinetic…

Download Here


Since stumbling across the ‘Respect Overdue’ compilation that Creative Vibes put out some years ago, I have been hot on the trail of rare and interesting funky music recorded in Australia, my own backyard. The following mix is a testament to my love of local flavors, and a bit of a poke at people who don’t think Aussies can be funky. This mix includes some of my favorites, some of my discoveries, and a couple of very, very rare numbers. I wanted to make it seamless, but time was a factor in putting this together. Still, for the most part I’ve managed to get tracks to blend into each other. Let me know what you thought! –
