PERET MAKO //
The man brings a unique players perspective to electronic music composition, adding nuance and dynamics to his sounds through delicate production and mixing techniques.
Lured to Sydney by the techno scene in 1993, Peret immersed himself in all forms and genres of music. As a professional DJ focused on scratching, hip hop and labels like Mo-Wax and Clear, Peret played alongside local talents such as Simon Caldwell, Ken Cloud and was co-resident with the much missed Illpikle at the infamous Globe for over two years.
Peret has supported everyone from Optimo, Charles Webster, Theo Parrish, DJ Krush, Blackalicious, and Craze as well as playing saxophone for Jamie Lidell’s live show in Sydney. He also scored the music for the Sydney Theatre Companys production of Mr. Kolpert and attended the 2004 Red Bull Music Academy in Rome representing Australia.
His production and mixing skills have seen him adding his touch to the music of Alphatown Collective, Nick Thayer, Bass Kleph, Swag, Prop, Deepchild, Kidzen, and Multiball – his remix for the latter being nominated for an Australian Dance Music Award.
Though a devoted hip-hop fan, Peret was never comfortable with the idea of sampling other musicians work, preferring a handmade approach. The techniques that evolved from these sonic meanderings form the basis of Peret’s sound. Fans of artists such as Matthew Herbert (who is a fan himself) and Henrik Schwarz will appreciated the MAKO sound. – The influences of hip hop, techno, jazz and deep house, amongst many others, are woven into a highly personalised style and that forms the foundations of the sublime sounds of PERET MAKO.
EDSEVEN (Lioness Presents) //
Armed with a unique ear, deep collection and a skill for combining diverse sounds, Sydney’s edseven has built a solid reputation as a dj over the last decade as well as a producer/remixer and more recently as a promoter.
A collector of many styles, a typical Edseven dj set could include anything from Detroit Hip Hop to Nigerian Funk, Broken beat to Chicago House, Classic Soul to Future Beat and beyond.
This musical range and the technical ability to hold it all together has seen edseven called upon to support international acts including Funkineven, IG Culture, Recloose, Grooveman Spot, Nickodemus, Suff Daddy, Linkwood, Samiyam, EL-P, Dj Food, Frank Booker, Mark de Clive Lowe, Raf Daddy, Peanut Butter Wolf, Pablo Valentino, Mark Pritchard, Jose James, Waajeed, James Pants, Domu, Dj Spooky etc.. Edseven has also held regular local guest spots and residencies across Australia including Soul of Sydney, The Croft Institute (Melb), Space is the Place, Rootdown (Melb), Dust Tones, Future Classic, Tonic Lounge, Playground Weekender, Adelaide Festival, Sugar, Vibes on a Summer Day and Headroom…
Edseven’s production work draws upon the varied influences with releases including the dusty Off Kilter Hip Hop of his first two EPs on Straightup Recordings to his future focused ‘Pigeon Clap’ released via Frequency Lab on their Headroom compilation. Remix work for artists including Cookin’ on 3 Burners, Dj Regal, Onur Engin and Rephrase..
In 2012 with the help of Melbourne stalwart Inkswel, edseven started a series of warehouse parties under the name “Lioness Presents’. The aim of this venture was to showcase top shelf international producers/djs in intimate Sydney warehouse spots. Delivering the initial goal in spades Lioness brought out West London artist Funkineven (Eglo Records), prolific master musician/producer Mark de Clive Lowe (Tru Thoughts), French House/Beats don Pablo Valentino (MCDE/Faces Records), cult label Firecracker’s Linkwood, Steve Spacek (Africa Hitech /WARP) and Recloose (Planet E).. Lioness Presents has gone from strength to strength with good friends Henry Compton and Fred Tectonic joining the crew soon after it’s inception.
Late 2012 also saw edseven start a weekly Hip Hop, Funk, Beats, Soul and Afrobeat night ’73 ’til Infinity’ in his home suburb of Newtown co presented by Sydney institution Soul of Sydney.. this monthly event has evolved to now call Surry Hills’ Play Bar home.
BENNY HINN //
Benny Hinn (Daniel Robertson) began spinnin’ vinyl back in 01′ playing a range of phat funky house and some chunky big assed broken beats for the masses… Although now only 34, the Hinns has played at some of the finer establishments, parties and festivals around Sydney, Melbourne, Cairns, Spain, Wollongong and the South coast, gaining a rep az a bit of a party starter and one with some def skillz, finesse and sheer artistry on a pair of 1200s.
The Hinn has also toured with the MOS Label for an Annual release and has supported many artists such as, The Stanton Warriors, Freq Nasty, Krafty Kuts, A.Skillz, Jay Jay, Sneaky Sound System, The Resin Dogs, Katalyst, Sarah Love, Shortee Blitz, Frenzie, Total Eclipse, Mr. Doris, Cool Hand Luke, Normski, DJ Katch, DJ A.$.K, DJ KC, Edseven, Inkswel, Omegaman, Busta, Koolism, [love] Tattoo, Mark Dynamix, Ajax [RIP], Bang Gang, Goodwill, Alex Taylor, Funktrust, Purple Sneaker DJs + many many more…
Benny has also been dipping into a little production here and there with a few little mashes and beats all up on his soundcloud page.
His latest venture has been building and establishing PLAY BAR SYDNEY. After drawing inspiration from his last stint in Melbourne and meeting his partner & co-owner Sarah, the two worked hard to build what they hope to be for many years to come, an institution that brings decent music into Surry Hills Sydney. He has programmed every bit of music that has come through the venue and supported a huge range of hiphop, breakbeat DJs and just awesome beat-makers and producers both local and abroad…
