SHAN FRENZIE //
Frenzie has been around the block more than a few times. He’s got well over twenty years of experience behind him, a record collection that will make any deejay envious, and a concrete rep as one of Australia’s most trusted party rockers. Taking inspiration from when DJ’s used to play for no less than 6 hours straight and transition between styles: Original Soul & Funk 45′s – check. Deep House, Disco & Boogie – check. Hip Hop, R&B, Breaks & Beats – check. Party anthems and forgotten classics – check. Frenzie has got you covered.
His Groove Therapy radio show (now in it’s eleventh year) has been broadcasting weekly on 2SER FM every Friday lunchtime and has become an essential listen to all musically savvy Sydney-siders, while the podcast of the show has garnered a huge loyal fan base in all corners of the globe.
A veteran touring DJ of the Australian east coast, Frenzie also recently rocked dance floors in San Francisco and New York – and has had support billing alongside a who’s who of DJ royalty. Infact, pioneering deejay Grandmaster Flash requested Frenzie as his official support DJ for his most recent 2013 Sydney tour (four shows in total) – and only months earlier, Frenzie could be seen cutting it up on the turntables on stage with New Yorks Hip Hop legends The Ultramagnetic MC’s.
…and it’s no small wonder – Frenzie definitely has the skills to pay the bills. In 2012 he placed second in the New South Wales heats of the DMC, the most prestigious DJ competition in the world (He’s last foray into battle deejaying was almost twelve years earlier).
But can he rock a party? Frenzie has been dropping memorable sets for years. Whether it be a one hour power mix or an all night marathon set behind the turntables, Frenzie has plenty of experience reading the crowd and always drops an entertaining set – custom built from carefully considered quality jams and a dash of turntable trickery. Not only can Frenzie mix a record, he has definitely earned his stripes as the number one chief party rocker.
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.
