Who is this guy who leads you across an empty floor, and then slides his glasses down his nose and looks into your eyes with his like, crazily beautiful ones and lays you down on musical satin sheets? Who is that who instantly fills the floor with other dancers and everyone is sweating together? The man who tips his extremely well-fitted hat to you all before slipping away into the night to drink a smooth but stiff drink? Who was that man with the rare intellect, poet’s soul and deep knowledge of afrobeat? Rich Medina, that’s who.

For the past two decades, Rich Medina has cemented his reputation for taking audiences worldwide on a sonic journey through hip-hop, house, soul, afrobeat, funk, breaks and dance classics. Many of his idols have become peers, and his fans often become his friends, just through the shared experience of music. Countless couples and relationships were commenced to the soundtracks he has created!

Rich Medina’s passion for spinning records began at the tender age of twelve, when he played his first party in his hometown of Lakewood, New Jersey. From that moment forward, he studied his craft with the focus of a seasoned athlete, quietly developing the skills that made sequencing and mixing music extremely natural to him.

Medina is known worldwide for his residencies, most notably an epic 9 year run for the legendary Lil’ Ricky’s Rib Shack at APT and his beloved JUMP N FUNK, North America’s Original Afrobeat party, begun 2001.

Rich at the limited capacity Freda’s bar is sure to be a wild and sweaty, heartfelt affair.

ABOUT SOUL OF SYDNEY COLLECTIVE & MUSIC EVENTS

SOUL OF SYDNEY: are a grassroots artist-run cooperative bonded by a love of ‘FUNK’ and ‘SOUL’ based music in all its forms. A creative family of DJ’s, Musicians, Producers, Dancers & Designers working to promote and support the music they love as well as the street culture (Breaking, DJing, Street art) around it in Sydney.
From humble begins in 2009 originally as a blog and social network, it was not long before the collective took a chance on a sunny Sunday afternoon to throw a one off secret Sunday afternoon picnic over 5 years ago. Setting up turntables and a renegade sound-system in a park in the inner west Sydney with a simple idea to bring FEEL-GOOD FUNK & SOUL music in an atmosphere where people had the freedom express themselves, where dancers connected with DJ’s and DJ’s had the liberty to play anything they were feeling.

Taking musical inspiration from pioneering Hip Hop, Disco & House & seminal DJ’s & parties & clubs from 70’s, 80’S of such as; David Mancuso’s The Loft (NYC), Larry Levan’s and Paradise Garage, Kool Herc’s Block Parties, Ron Hardy, Grandmaster Flash and Frankie Knuckles. As well as encouragement from current esteemed music events such as New York’s ‘Body and Soul’, LA’s ‘The Do Over’ and UK’s Southport Weekender, the Soul of Sydney family knew there was a need to take things back to the roots of those musical scenes as a cooperative and with anything they put their name to.

Soul of Sydney’s distinctive focal characteristics of dance-floor expression, crowd participation and an inclusive party environment has seen the events really take on their own feel over the last 5 years.

A delicate approach to getting down where DJ’s, Record Collectors, B-boys & B-Girls, and Musicians from difference culture, age brackets and social scenes can meet away from the usual late night bar and club situation. They meet on a dance floor to connect through music on a dance floor to celebrate music’s uniting power. With positive party vibes encouraged, you can anticipate all kinds of dance floor fun including crowds that get down with classic Soul Train lines, Boys, Breakers, Poppers and Lockers getting down, Roller Boogie Flash Mob dancers and even the odd limbo lines or group jump rope on the floor. (Check out some of the videos below for an idea of how they get down HERE)

Always keeping it fresh with a secret locations (released only to ticket holders via email or SMS), they have thrown parties in all kinds of out of the ordinary spaces including; public parks, laneways, car parks, beaches, skate parks, art galleries, rooftops, warehouses, courtyards, restaurant spaces and fresh venues spaces around town.

Five years on their open musical ideals have not changed, focused highlighting ‘feel-good’ funk vibes in all their splendor, you can expect DJ’s to dig deep in their crates and pull out all kinds of gems from Afro-Beat, Latin-Funk, New York Disco, Roller Boogie, to early Chicago House, classic 90’s Hip Hop joints & beyond at the jams.

Drawing on their musical ROOTS and INSPIRATIONS, you will typically hear the sounds of James Brown, Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin, Bob Marley, De La Soul, J Dilla, Stevie Wonder, Run DMC, Grandmaster Flash, Larry Levan, Frankie Knuckles blaring through the speakers, along with a heavy dose of rare hidden gems intertwined for good measure too.

Always moving forward with a smile the last few years have defiantly been an amazing for Soul of Sydney since that first picnic back in 2011. They have been asked to curate and bring their own unique brand of Funk party as part of a host of some of the largest well-established festivals in Sydney, including Sydney Festival – Hyde Park Festival Village & Parramatta Opening Party, Sydney Fringe Festival, Vivid, Soulfest, The African Film Festival, just to name a few.
