DJ HUDGE [NZ] //
Born and bred in South London, Dave Hudge grew up with a loving family and a very tight group of good friends. Hudge started playing records with these friends aged 16 and quickly found he had a passion for Djing. Since then, Hudge has been DJing at clubs, festivals, concerts and bars from the heights of the Alps to the beaches of Thailand for over 23 years. The basis of his sound has always been Hip-Hop but his unswerving love and encyclopedic collection of music enables him to inject whatever it a takes to rock a party – something he never fails to do.
In the ’90′s Hudge honed his skills as a DJ for nearly 8 years with the Funkin Pussy Sound System at the legendary Hiphop night at the Africa Centre. He also played at the UK B-Boy Championships from 1998 to 2003 sharing the stage with with Kurtis Blow, Plus One, Dj Kool Herc, Africa Islam, Schoolly D, Rahzel, the Scratch Perverts, Crazy Legs (the Rock Steady Crew) and Mantronix. Hudge has toured with and supported the ‘JB’s Funky People’ (Fred Wesley, Pee Wee Ellis, Bobby Bird and Vickie Anderson), the Fun Lovin’ Criminals, the MOBO award winner Corrine Bailey Rae, MTV’s Dirty Sanchez as well as DJing with DJ Ollie Teeba (The Herbaliser), Brad Balloo (The Nextmen), DJ Food, Shorty Blitz(KissFM), Tha Dump (Funkin Pussy), Mr Thing (Extended Players, BBE), Marc Seven, DJ Vadim, Dr Rubberfunk, Shredded Pete and Classic Material`s Chris Read, Big Ted, Canada’s world famous We Funk Radio, Parisian DJ Suspect (The Funk League), Blak Twang and the mixtape assassin J Period – to shamelessly name drop a few.
In 1997 Hudge teamed up with his friends Bez, Jensen, Stern Funk, Rich Strange Talker and Uncle Biggie to create the boat party phenomenon known as Take it 2 the Bridge. Based on the Thames, TI2TB have since rocked the rivers and waterways of New York, Sydney, Copenhagen, Turin, Thailand, India, Stockholm, and Canada. These word-of-mouth, sell-out parties are simply one of the best finds in London. Between 2001 and 2011 Hudge and the TI2TB crew also smashed up a total of 16 sets at the Dance Village at the mighty Glastonbury Festival.
In January 2012 Hudge and his family left ol’ Blighty for sunnier climbs. Hudge, Zan and Suki moved to New Zealand to join friends and family and to start a new life. Hudge has since teamed up with DJ T Rice to host one of the most successful weekend radio shows on national radio station, George FM. Check them out every Saturday 4 to 6pm on the Uptown Boogie!
Since moving to NZ, Hudge has done jams with a host of local talent including the Turnaround crew – Submariner, Cian, Manuel Bundy, Frank Booker, Recloose, Lokey, King Kapisi, Che Fu and Cool HandLuke and The NZ Soul All-Dayer, to name a few, as well as sets at two consecutive Splore Festivals, some crazy block parties in Queenstown and regularity heading over to rock parties in Oz with DJ Frenzie, JC and all the Funkdafied crew. Hudge, since being in NZ, has also supported Apollo Brown, J-Period, Mr Thing, DJ Suspect, AG, Total Eclipse, Kev Brown, Ty, Shortee Blitz and tour DJ for Blak Twang and Stone Throw Record’s Guilty Simpson.

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.

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…
