New Jack in the house this Sat feat. CashMoneyBros. Frenzie, Adverse, MK-1 & Benny Hinn delivering all those classics of the New Jack swing era + a few 90s hip hop bombs…
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.
One can describe DJ Adverse as a ‘multifaceted creative engineer’ but will humbly refuse any such title. DJ Adverse’ expertise lends itself to video editing, music production, rapper, branding and marketing, in addition to his flawless in demand unique mixing style and charismatic showmanship.
A favourite crowd party rocker and music trendsetter, DJ Adverse (co-founding member of The Groove Dealers) started out in the early 2000’s as one of the original radio hosts at community radio station Triple H 100.1FM. He was swiftly put on the mainstream circuit DJing throughout Sydney after being noticed by DJ Aladdin Royaal, playing at some of Sydney most popular night spots at the time including The Cave, Metropolis, MTV Lair, Shark Hotel, Star Bar and Mona Vale hotel to name a few.
Adverse further expanded his talents and became a leading MC for Booty Bar Australia, which took him touring across the country with Booty Bar founder and Accredited ARIA award winner DJ Lenno. It was around this time that Adverse co-founded The Groove Dealers and helped form and write music for Australian Hip Hop Group Unison and LP and The Architects.
Over the last 5 years, under the banner The Groove Dealers, Adverse started running an annual snow tour at Falls Creek snowfields to capacity crowds with some of The Groove Dealers team and fellow party rockers, DJ CMAN, Juzzlikedat, Carratgold, VJ Spook, Makoto, Louie Headnod and MC Noodlez.
Adverse has played live on Radio for 2RDJ 88.1fm with DJ D on mixbosses, Bondi Beach Radio on the Zulu Nation Radio show with DJ MK-1 and Mirrah and 2SER 107.3fm with Hardcore Classic Radio’s Randy Glazer and Tommy Rock. He played warm up set’s at the 2014 and 2015 DMC NSW championship, The 2015 Wax Wars and sets at festivals including Street Fest with Food Trucks United and at the inaugural SoulFest as part of the 45’s sessions with Funkdafied Events. He has supported the likes of International artists DJ Total Eclipse (The X-Ecutioners), Zac Hendriks, Sarah Love, Eric Lau, Oddisee, Slum Village, Conkarah and Aus Hip Hop rapper Briggs.
In addition to support spots, Adverse has shared the bill with some of Sydney best including Rodney O, Coolhand Luke, Stephen Ferris, Graham Mandroules, Morphingaz, Dj A.$.K, Simon Caldwell, Kate Monroe, Phil Toke, Edseven, Raine Supreme, DJ Sing, Naiki, Shan Frenzie, Mike Who, DJ Trey, DJ Moto, Soul Benefits plus many more.
He is also regularly booked and play’s impressive party sets for Soul of Sydney, Dust Tones, Funkdafied, Syd Def Jam, Grindin and Masterclass Events, as well as local nightspots including Play Bar, The Local Taphouse, Yullis, The Rose Hotel, Captain Cook Hotel, Darlo Bar, Plan B Small Club & Café Lounge.

When we bend ourselves to material desires – a new car, a new home, for instance – we increase their intensity and their number. Our wishes increase and we become less and less satisfied, and more and more incapable of satisfying them
Born John Khilla in Sydney 1979, MK-1 aka Mista Killa began DJing at the age of 15 with the aid of mentor and friend, New York’s legendary DJ Steve Dee (founder of the X-men and inventor of the funk a.k.a beat juggling).
By the age of 18 MK-1 had developed his own distinct style of DJing, shunning the many cultural clichés of the Hip-Hop scene.
With sets geared more towards a showcase celebrating music past to present, Mista Killa is certainly a rare breed of current DJ’s who prides himself in rocking good music – PERIOD. Never limiting himself by a genre, Mista Killa, born John Khilla, is a Sydney native who has developed his own unique style and technique which has set him aside from the stereotypical DJ found at most clubs around the globe. From rocking plenty of the world’s most famous venues, to being one of the exclusive DJ’s for the 2000 Olympics, to releasing a myriad of mind-blowing mixtapes and singles with the music industry’s finest, and even rocking international radio stations on a regular basis.
Over the years, MK-1 has been both a resident and guest DJ at many Sydney night spots such as Iguana Bar, Lotel, GAS, Castles, Good Bar, Melt and Black Birds Cafe in addition to numerous after parties for illustrious artists ranging from the Sugarhill Gang to Duran Duran.
