Phat Play Friday pres. CANTALOOP DJs [FRIDAY – 14.03.2014]
This Phat Play Friday we welcome the funky, afro groove inspired skills from the guys building a solid rep around inner Sydney, the Cantaloop Djs…
Eclectic jams and worldwide vibes with residents Kelly & Mick, and a rotating posse of very special guests. Sip back on a sonic sangria of hip hop, funk, reggae, afrobeat, house, garage, electro, disco… and plenty of dope records that don’t belong in any category!
Kelly Kingi grew up in a generation where kids played barefoot, the Fresh Prince resided in Philadelphia, and the closest game to a Nintendo DS was a Casio MG-880 calculator. Old school! After wearing out copies of Kraftwerk’s “Electric Cafe” and Malcolm McLaren’s “Duck Rock” in 1995, Kelly emerged from his windy as Titahi Bay bedroom, migrated north, and burst onto the Auckland club and bar scene. All spare uni-student cash was subsequently spent at “Black Market Records” on hip-hop, funk, soul and reggae wax… Fast-forward nearly 20 years and little has changed. The 1200’s are still his weapon of choice, with Serato SL4 used to full effect for maximum dance floor devastation. Now based in Sydney, Kelly’s love for amazing tunes of all varieties is stronger than ever. With a 3 month trip throughout the European club and festival circuit coming up later this year, Kelly’s quest for fantastic music and unique art forms continues.
Mick Antonievich comes armed with a long ass last name and a precise on-the-fly mixing style that spills drinks on dance floors. Usually other people’s. Having spent formative years living and exploring in South & Central America, Mick has developed a distinct ear for diverse sounds, a penchant for percussive loops and an eclectic record collection from around the world. Known for his ability to combine unique selections with style and being equally comfortable keeping things tropical for cocktail hour, paying homage to golden era hip-hop or joining the dots between contemporary house, soulful techno and classic electronica. Currently based in Sydney, with regular guest appearances at local parties both in Australia and New Zealand, Mick’s search for unique dance floor gems continues and he looks forward to working on several new projects in 2014.
