CMAN has worked in the music industry for over 10 years and performed at Sydney’s most established venues and events including Home Night Club, Oxford Arts Factory, The Basement, Blue Beat, Four Seasons Hotel, The Cafe Lounge, Ching-a-Lings, the infamous Soul of Sydney Block Parties plus events for Funkdafied & Grindin’.

AUDIO: Marc Mac “Hipology” – 12 min sampler @ 101 Apparel


Marc Mac is one of a rare breed of producers who moves smoothly between different genres flitting between pseudonyms while leaving a trail of quintessential releases. Straight Outta Dollis Hill London Marc Mac is one half of the legendary outfit 4hero and also founder member of Reinforced Records a label positioned at the cornerstone of early electronic music in the UK. In the late 90‘s Marc signed to Gilles Peterson’s Talkin Loud Records with his group 4hero. 4hero went on to produce 2 great award winning albums with Talkin Loud “Two Pages” & “Creating Patterns”. 4hero then went on to set up a new label where they released the critically acclaimed “Play With The Changes” and most recent “Extensions”. Somewhere in this timeline, between producing music for Jill Scott to Roy Ayers, Phonte to Terry Callier, Marc started another project called Visioneers releasing a set of limited 7” singles getting the attention from top eclectic DJ’s including Jazzy Jeff, Kenny Dope, Gilles Peterson & Norman Jay. Visioneers was then picked up by BBE records who released the debut album “Dirty Old Hip Hop”.

Following on from the success of “Dirty Old Hip Hop” Marc returns with a new Visioneers record HIPOLOGY. “Hipology is a collage of some of my personal influences as a DJ/Producer growing up listening to Hip Hop; it’s a real eclectic mix of Breaks, Beats, Soul, Jazz, and freaky squeaks and not a sampler in sight. Visioneers is about revisiting my love for Hip Hop; What it was and what it is; the musical influences and the culture…”. Hipology will be released on BBE records late spring and features guest spots from John Robinson, TRAC & Baron, Notes to Self, Luke Parkhouse, The Support Brass & Ariya Horns.

“I can’t paint a picture with one color I need to play with them all. Music is the same for me, how can I produce or DJ one style of music? I got to play with them all.” Marc Mac (4 Hero, Visioneers, BBE).

Boom Monk Ben (Solid Steel, UK)

Armed with Serato, two quick hands and the most diverse crate of dance floor fillers you’ve heard, the Boom Monk has developed a sound and style that is undoubtedly his own. Boom Monk Ben continues to be booked for some of the biggest and best electronic music events around and as his reputation grows the list of suitors keeps expanding. A frenzied fanatic of all things bass, the Boom Monk leaves no stone unturned and no sound unheard in his quest for dancefloor devastation. From hip hop, dancehall, funk and break beats to house, funky, electro, dubstep and drum and bass, as long as it makes him, us and you move on the floor then it will get put the through the blender in his inimitable style. The mighty Ninja Tune have been impressed enough to approach Ben to provide a series of ‘Boom Monk Zen’ mixes for their world famous Solid Steel radio show, which is broadcast in 30 countries world wide.

Cheeba (Ninja Tune, UK) – A/V set

Peel back your ears, stick matchsticks in your eyes, set your jaw to ‘drop’… Bristol’s, Detective of Perspective, DJ Cheeba is plugged in and here to turn the tables. With his trademark slick blend of classic breaks, hip-hop, electronica, rock, kid’s records, d&b, and in fact everything in between and beyond, Cheeba has the unrivaled technical ability, knowledge and humour to pull it all together like no one else. In 2008 Cheeba won the coveted ‘Solid Steel Mix of The Year’ with his, highly regarded, genre twisting mixtape ‘The Case of The missing Records’ and has since been invited to officially join the Solid Steel family alongside Ninja Tune legends such as Coldcut and DJ Food. Using standard turntables and Serato Video SL to enable video controlled by real vinyl records, Cheeba now has brought scratching and juggling both sounds and pictures into the mix with additional camera feeds and special FX for stunning live results.
