JONNY FAITH //
Drawing on a wide range of musical influences from the past and present, Jonny Faith has crafted his own individual sound overflowing with intricate percussion and lush, organic tones.
“This guy’s music is rooted in hip-hop but oozes cosmic sensibility” – Hyponik.com
Originating from Edinburgh, but now based in Melbourne, Faith gained his ear for rhythm and sound as a DJ and turntablist spinning hip hop, jungle and D&B, both in the UK and Australia, for some years. After a while, like many DJs, he turned his hand to his own productions and sound. Faith’s early music had a strong dub and reggae tinge, with one early single release coming under the alias Dropwise Dubs through the Sydney based Foreign Dub imprint. Although dub sensibilities and production techniques still underpin Faith’s style he moved into the hip hop future beats scene with aplomb hosting both a radio show and club night in Sydney dedicated to the emerging experimental beats sounds sweeping the globe.
In 2011 Faith took this instrumental hip hop tip in his own direction with his “Blue Sky on Mars” EP for Civil Music. Adopting a strong, galactic, synth based theme for the project, this first offering featured sci-fi samples, futuristic beats and remixes from the likes of Ital Tek and Dizz 1.
Today, Jonny Faith’s sound has grown into a warm and emotive experience summed up by his debut full length album forthcoming on Tru Thoughts. Entitled ‘Sundial’, this first LP is a rich tapestry of individual sonic threads, expertly crafted into a single form. Intended as a full, feature length work rather than throw away, standalone tracks it is one to plug in to and digest from start to finish.
“That’s what’s going on… Sundial sounds absolutely sick!” Jay Scarlett, Beat Dimensions
Future projects from Jonny are set to expand upon his worldly, cosmic sound and incorporate even wider influence from across the universe.
He is also in preparation to take his sound to the stage and utilise his DJ-ing and Turntablist experience in a new set incorporating his own tracks, remixes and album material.

MASE BOOGIE //
As one half of the Perth-born, Sydney-based production duo ‘Paper Plane Project’, Mase Boogie has travelled the globe exploring new sounds while collaborating with sessions musicians from Rio to New York. His sounds are reminiscent of an afternoon summer block party where sunshine-filled beats and grooves mix with tropical global rhythms.
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…
