C’Man, Juzzlikedat & DJ Archie[FRIDAY – 24.10.2014]
The dynamic duo return to Play Bar Sydney for another party night filled with nothing but awesome beats…
The guys have been playing host to a stack of great nights around town, such as, “Everyday People” at the Tatler, “Good Good Music” at Cafe Lounge, plus often feature for events at the Basement, Oxford Art Factory, and Ching-A-Lings; as well as Soul of Sydney block parties, and gigs for Funkdafied, and Grindin’.
Residing in Sydney, Australia; DJ CMAN has earned a reputation as a versatile go-to dance floor filler and mood creator with his infectious energy and signature ‘funky feel-good’ sets gaining him loyal fans both young and old.
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’.
He has played live on numerous radio stations including 2SER and Bondi FM, and supported touring international artists such as Eric Benet, Eric Lau and DJ Sarah Love.
Outside of Sydney CMAN has rocked crowds from the VIctorian snow fields to playing internationally in both Europe and South East Asia.
The son of an ex-record shop owner, it comes as no surprise the path that he would follow. With residencies across Sydney at some of the coolest underground bars to ritzy five star hotels; CMAN’s dynamic skills, musical knowledge and versatility make him an instant crowd favourite.
Rooted heavily in Soul, Jazz and Latin music from childhood, CMAN also grew up on a steady diet of Funk, R&B and Hip Hop. Today he enjoys fusing these influences into his sets with a fine tuned ear and the ability to seamlessly transition through genres; taking patrons on a soulful journey from Funk to Bossa, Reggae to Disco, Hip Hop to Boogaloo and all things in between.

JUZZLIKEDAT grew up in a musical family. From a young age he taught himself to play bass and drums. At 16 years old he was a keen collector of wax and could only afford one turntable and a mixer. Witnessing the evolution of Hip Hop, his passion for Funk and Jazz inspired him to travel through the many era’s of black music from the late 60′s to more recent digital sounds. Today Juzzlikedat sells records from his Funky hair salon in Surry Hills ‘Le Garage’, trying to cover the different eras of the Soul Jazz Funk and Hip Hop but also the Afrobeat and Brazilian sounds from the 70′s and 80′s.
As a DJ he has been spinning records in Sydney for over 10 years and played at mad parties and festivals like ‘Playground Weekender’ and ‘Peats Ridge Festival’ further represented by Mama Feel Good Funk Collective, The Groove Dealers, Soul of Sydney, Syd Def Jam and Funkdafied events. During this time he has supported international artists such as Omar, Sarah Love, Ray Mann to name a few. He also had a weekly show mixing an hour pure afro grooves on Skid Row Radio called “The Warm Up Show”.You can catch him on the 2 turntables weekly at some of Sydney’s funkiest bars namely Café Lounge, Play Bar, Chingalings, Oxford Art Factory, Martini Bar and many more.
DJ Archie first demonstrated his ear for dope tunes when he rocked up for PLAY BAR’s Crate digger’s one Thursday.
Armed with a stack of 45′s, he just kept dropping bomb after bomb after bomb of old school hip-hop & soul originals. Since then, every week he has spun, his arsenal of wicked tunes is clearly evident and no only limited to hip-hop. Archie is quite happy to throw down a bit of Nu-funk & disco beats, along with a real underground house vibed beat aswell…
We are very lucky to have found this emporium of solid tunes…
