DJ Nycks knows vinyl like the back of his hand. Growing up his parents had an extensive record collection – so it wasn’t hard to become obssessed. “The feel and sound of vinyl records has always fascinated me,” he explained.
Spinning records might just run in the blood for the Sydney-based house DJ and event producer. He’s been honing his skills for 20 years – summoning the spirits of the classic house era and commanding them to possess the dancefloor.
Kerri Chandler. Derrick Carter. Mark Farina. The sounds of pioneers from New York and Chicago’s 90s house scenes with a personal spin on it – that’s Nycks’ mission.
“My track selection is always infused with shuffling beats, funky bass-lines, and sexy vocal hooks. I love playing tracks which have a classic feel to them regardless of the year they have been released.”
Sticking with core concepts is how he’s sustained an international career since 1998. He’s done residencies in France, Greece, New Caledonia, and Australia. And in 2016 he launched a promotion company dubbed Underground Jack – throwing parties that hark back to the golden years of house, the 90s.
“I want people to forget the stress of their lives and immerse themselves in the sound,” he said. “To connect and share the spirit of the early days of house.”
Nycks and Underground Jack have been regularly hosting an event in Sydney called Raw. It’s not candy-coated or squishy house – but deep funky chunk. It’s the analog echoes from old-school house scenes laced with current tracks from Demarkus Lewis, Marc Cotterell, New Jack City, and more.
Timeless ideas reincarnated for the modern dancefloor.
“Give us your ears and dancing feet and we’ll treat you to tunes you won’t hear anywhere else in Sydney – from garage to jackin house to deep house and back again.”

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 & mixcloud page & is host of the Radio Program Sydney Underground on Bondi Beach Radio.
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…
