DJ C’MAN //
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.
