MR. LOB [MELB] //
I am a Melbourne based Dj and Music Collector and have been active on the Melbourne Dj scene since 1999.
My live Dj sets are generally an eclectic blend of funk, soul, jazz, hip hop, reggae, Afrobeat and Latin, while my mixes tend to be more genre specific. The one thing you can say about my style is that whatever I play it has to have a real funky, jazzy and soulful sensibility.

DJ JUZZLIKEDAT grew up in a musical family. From a young age he taught himself to play bass and drums. At 14 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.
